Just as I was thinking that I could maybe knock this thread on the head following...
Wycombe Wanderers 0-3 Oxford United
...Oxford United Football Club have now been issued with a winding up petition by HMRC for the second time in less than eight months. The paperwork was filed yesterday, and the court hearing is due to take place on Wednesday 19th December...
As if that wasn't enough off-field excitement already of the supporters, they also got the news this morning that ex-Internazionale chairman Erick Thohir has today joined the OUFC board. You'd think that the fans would be quite excited about this new ownership team of Thai businessman and Indonesian billionaire, but although some seem genuinely optimistic, others are being more refreshingly suspicious - after all, there's a thirty-six year history of wealthy owners promising the earth and delivering an awful lot less in the OX postcode region. For all the confident words spoken at football clubs of all levels across the world, there is nothing to let in the cold light of day quite like the hard knock on the door. Still, if these owners are as flush with money as they seem to suggest, then surely this winding-up petition could be screwed up and disposed of really rather quickly...
