They were pretty good in the first half yesterday and in reality should have been 2-0 up at HT as Taylor missed a sitter. That probably would have been Game Over.
However in the second half Robinson for some reason took off 3 of their better players and we went for the Hail Mary move of throwing a centre back (Tom Broadbent) up front and going long which seemed to totally knock them off their stride and Broadbent scored and had a massive hand in the glorious second goal.
I heard that Robinson hung his players out to dry rather than admitting he got his subs and tactics wrong in the second half.
I'm used to seeing us go to mush against them so yesterday made a nice change. They tried sitting back far far too early when in reality we're just about knitting together a first 11 at the moment and to be brutally honest were there for the taking as we're missing so many players. They really dropped a clanger, however our boys showed the type of determination required in a derby right until the final whistle and we reaped the rewards at the end.
Since I've been going to games regularly since 2003 that's the first time I've watched us play Oxford thinking we want it more than them.
