We should win this one with full side but if MM messes with the side could come unstuck so trusting him to do the right thing there will be some usual shocks ,we don’t want to be one of them so will go for a 3-0 win

Expectation is that we should, with a full strength squad, even allowing for loanees being absent, be easily good enough to roll Oxford over 3-0. but its the FA Cup and that is always a leveller. I notice that Rob Sinclair has recently left Oxford so that will diminish their chances, he is a good player as we saw when he was at FGR. Here's hoping for the 3-0 win.

Micky has already said he would in pre- match interview. Only McCullough cup tied...

Going for 3-0 for this - desperate to go but the planets have to align with:

Baby falling asleep at 11 and waking up at 12
Go and see friends in Thingwall for 2 hours
Get to leave at 2:45 and mention to the wife that she could drop me off at the game

If those 3 personal goals of mine come off then it's written in the stars for a 3-0 win!

More a question of what the hell was the defence doing to concede 3 goals

Frankly they were damn lucky it was only 3. If Davies had been as off as the rest of the team they'd have scored 6. Only one side ever looked like winning. Stronger, quicker, more desire, more running off the ball (which wasn't hard as ours was nonexistent). I dont think an appropriate adjective has been invented to describe how abysmal the midfield was.

We got out of jail for free today. What a bizarre match! Absolutely no commitment shown by any Rovers players, except perhaps Connor and Davies, Defence appalling. Buxton, Cole, Harris, - woeful contributions, makes me shudder. Banks and even Norwood, a bad day at the office. I think we missed McCullough, he shields the central defence so very well. Need to sign him until the end of the season, if not permanently. As for Jay Harris and Tollitt, the time has come to part company - permanently. Pleased that we clapped off the Oxford City lads because they really deserved to win that game. Let's just hope that it was a one off...

+1. Oxford City were a credit to themselves and the National League South. They showed some real quality and deserved to win. Rightly applauded off the pitch by many at the end.

Oxford do deserve credit. Their closing down contributed to our under par performance. I don't remember Norwood getting behind them once except for the one he got flagged for
