They managed just one real shot on target on the bobbly Kassam Stadium pitch, and Josh Parker's drive was brilliantly turned for a corner by keeper Michael Ingham.

Wilder said: "It's like chalk and cheese between how we were at Plymouth last week and today.

"We need a spark from somewhere but it's a real struggle for us at home at the moment.

"The players are a lot better than what they are producing when we play at home. We've got a lot more quality than what we're showing and that's so frustrating.

"We're struggling at the top of the pitch and struggling to create.

"And I think everyone can see that we don't have any confidence when we're playing at home. We just have to get our head down and keep working."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

Time To Burst The ITK Bubble


here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
