While we're talking #oufc v Wycombe, who would like to win a pair of tickets for this weekend?— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC yes i think Potter is more a winger so push him wide and chuck constable up with smalley— @buboxno1 19 August 2013
@Englands_urn @OxfordMailOUFC I would like to see him stick to what he's got. Up to Williams and O'Dowda to step it up now— @maxoneill_95 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC we need to stay with the 4-4-2 formation, it will serve us well— @OUFCWomble 19 August 2013
Like it, Andy. Hopefully Potter will have some sort of Gazza/Gary Mabbutt face mask. Could become his trademark? #oufc— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC Potter has grown up alot and is much stronger on the ball. Is a real threat everytime he has the ball now— @buboxno1 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC can we make sure potter has some sort of phantom of the opera type mask to protect his nose!— @andywilmer 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC with 2 home games now it gives a real chance to make it 5 from 5.— @realpaulhawtin 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC can't wait for the Wycombe game! Should be a quality atmosphere at the ground! Let's make it 4 out of 4 wahooooo #coyy— @Jakeoufc01 19 August 2013
Moving to Sat, #oufc in great form, playing at home to Wycombe who should bring a decent following. It all points to a big gate, doesn't it?— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
Lots of different ideas on who should replace Rigg, but isn't the best thing that #oufc have a variety of options?— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@maxoneill_95 @OxfordMailOUFC should use what we have, Williams or o'dowda can fill that role esp at home, may opt for someone else away— @Englands_urn 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC working together more players fill in to keep the shape rather than it's not my job. And better ability players all round— @kevbrooks2 19 August 2013
Have to agree with Ryan. Smalley is full of confidence playing through the middle - 3 goals in 3 games, wouldn't want to interfere with that— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC I would hope Beano starts too with Smalley and Potter goes back on the wing but would think Kitson will come back in— @kevinspackman 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC Williams did well at Charlton so give him a go. But Beano has maybe earned a start after Saturday.— @realpaulhawtin 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC if Smalley goes out wide, he will stop scoring goals— @RyanDaviess15 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC defiantly use o'dowda had a good game at Carlton #oufc— @lane_theo 19 August 2013
Think it's worth using the next two games, which are at home, to have a look at Williams/O'Dowda or both. More of a straight swap #oufc— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC no chance Constable will go out wide. Smalley would if we had to choose between the two— @OUFCWomble 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC I was surprised like most people that Hall came on. Would like to see Williams play as that's why we signed him— @kevinspackman 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC Either are good enough.— @buboxno1 19 August 2013
RT @Oufc_Luke: @OxfordMailOUFC O'Dowda.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
#oufc could also bring Constable in - both he and Smalley could do a job out wide. Asa Hall was also used there on Sat.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
Hi Max, think for the moment #oufc will look in-house to fill in for Rigg. Williams and O'Dowda are options, who do fans want?— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC do we expect wilder to look into the loan market or use what he's got to replace Rigg?— @maxoneill_95 19 August 2013
9 goals from the first 3 games makes #oufc the division's top scorers. Also, among the 9 goals have been 6 different scorers.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC I think clean sheets will come , what is a positive is how many goals we are scoring #oufc— @lane_theo 19 August 2013
Spot on, Martyn. Got the impression that if anything Mullins's signing excited #oufc fans even more than Kitson. He's just so reliable.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC alot of credit to wilder-Mullins superb signing keep him fit promotion or even champions possibility #oufc— @Mhanks7 19 August 2013
...like you I like the look of the back four plus Clarkey. Hopefully the first clean sheet comes on Saturday.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
Hi Jack. I think at this stage the lack of clean sheets for #oufc are only a minor irritation. They'll want to tighten up but...— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC Any worry that we've yet to keep a clean sheet this season? (Even though our back 5 are looking solid!) #OUFC— @willowsj 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC they is less distraction this year unlike last year with Leeds away and Swindon at home #oufc— @lane_henry 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC as good as it was last season! The next few games will indicate what's really going to happen this season I'm confident!— @andywilmer 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC the team seems much stronger though and the spirit very high so can't see a repeat of last year coming. Massive game Sat.— @realpaulhawtin 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC so far so good but can't help thinking about this time last season and it going wrong from here, got to be positive!— @realpaulhawtin 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC I think our players I taking more of a chance on attacking the ball , plus we have got better delivery in to the box #OUFC— @lane_theo 19 August 2013
Should find out more on Rigg in the next couple of days. All depends on the severity of the tear, but Wilder said on Sat min 4-6 weeks #oufc— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
Unfortunately have to mention injuries. Good news - Potter and probably Kitson should be fine for Sat. Bad news - Rigg out for some time.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC Team playing well, fan numbers and atmosphere nothing short of exceptional. I think strength in depth is lacking. #Injuries— @tom_rogers8 19 August 2013
It's a useful string to #oufc's bow. What's the difference this season, delivery or the players attacking the ball?— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
That's a good point, Theo. Smalley's goal at Torquay and the two vs Bury came from set pieces, which haven't been a strong point for #oufc— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC It's been a great start , what's is good to see though is firstly grinding wins out and scoring from set pieces— @lane_theo 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC @JamesConstable9 yes. Repeatedly. Want to see it again now too!— @76rlj 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC @JamesConstable9 sure did has to be a contender for goal of the month and an early goal of the season candidate! #Tekkers— @andywilmer 19 August 2013
Constable's goal worth a mention. He told me here: http://t.co/2MCndrPovK it was the best of his 95 for #oufc. Anyone disagree?— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
...which gave them a platform to go and win the game in the second. Encouraging signs at both ends.— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
Have to say the wind at Torquay truly did make it a game of two halves. #oufc defended for their lives to keep it goalless at the break...— @OxfordMailOUFC 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC we didn't start to well as it took us a while to get going in the first half, but was a great performance in the second— @RyanDaviess15 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC a great win in tricky conditions. The team are proving they have great team spirit and never give up! #oufc— @buboxno1 19 August 2013
@OxfordMailOUFC that's was a good test from a team that knows what were about if we can make it 4 out of 4 on Sat the season looks good!— @andywilmer 19 August 2013
First, here is some reaction from the 3-1 win at Torquay.
