Question of the Week
How long before new manager arrives?
17/12 Oxford Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
TOWN seized control, or were handed it on a baguette, depending on the colour of your spectacles. Whatever, Town dominant, Pinault the prince of passing; Town trundling forward, almost here, nearly there, a foot in the way, a bottom blocking. Not quite, but pressure building.

Still Town piled forward. Still Oxford ignored the snake charmer in the middle. Was there a total exclusion zone around Pinault? Clarke started to wobble, throwing straight out of play, mis-kicking, wading out of his area at bizarre times. All it needed was one more goal and the game would be won. Oxford didnâ€™t seem that interested in getting the ball, but were quite prepared to do so some soft shoe shuffling for the crowd when it fell to them by accident. Now! Sumptuous, sensuous, seamless movement, Parkinson free inside the area on the left. Parkinson confused his fellow professionals by looking up and crossing low through the 6 yards box. The ball trickled and tempted, trundling along waiting for a divot to divert it goalwards. Robinson and Fleming raced towards the far post and the full back just managed to get there before the pretty Flemingo, sweeping the ball away from a foot or so out. Both collided with the post, Robinson kissing into the pocket off the post and Fleming a full backside whack. Ouch.
Half time: Grimsby Town 1 Oxford United 0
Thatâ€™s the first half thatâ€™s fit to print.
Shoulda, coulda, didnae. Sums the season up. So we know whatâ€™s going to happen in the second half, donâ€™t we.

"Iâ€™ll meet you by the vegetables - are Townâ€™s defence going to Tescos too".
The report continues in the Second Half.
