Oxford United will face rivals Swindon Town in the opening round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy next month.

The competition is often low down on clubs' priorities but the prospect of a derby at the Kassam Stadium is likely to attract a good crowd.

United did the double over Swindon in the league last season, winning 2-0 at home in March.

The tie will be played in the week commencing Monday, September 3.

Excellent, could be our fourth consecutive victory against our Wiltshire friends, and if we lose we can say it was a meaningless trophy game.

Sven. There is no such thing as a meaningless game between our sides and you know it.

I hate loosing to Ox***d and the last two were particularily difficult to witness. I hope we smash you beyond comprehension and I am sure you will feel the same.

Did you get your finger stuck on the o key or do you by any chance mean losing and not loosing? Mind you I wouldn't expect anything else from a Scumdon fan!

If you're going to criticise others, it would be better to ensure yours is free from errors too. A quick revision on the use of commas would be a good idea.

oh the season is only a day or two old and the wonderful banter between swindon and oxford followers has already resumed thanks to the computer for the JP trophy, realistically the only chance of a visit to Wembley this season, the only question needing answering is will JC play for Oxford, or will he be sold on to raise badly needed funds ?

Hah, oh how I love the football chavs. Why does this sport attract so many morons, thugs and general riff-raff?

Who honestly gives a toss? Its not as if life depends on the outcome of a match.

Both sides, grow up, enjoy the event and don't spoil for a fight. The only people who win are the Police and the highly paid solicitors.

After three straight walkover victories it's all getting just a bit tedious against our reptilian friends...so I vote we attempt to even up the scales a bit, just to make it more interesting.

So I suggest if we start watering the pitch now and leave the hoses on it for the next two weeks then it might just start to resemble the sort of quagmire that they need in order to win big games against decent opposition. Plus, we could start the game with a smoke bomb in our area so that none of the defence can see a thing.

Once the ref has sent a few of our players off for next to nothing then there's every chance our three-thumbed buddies will nick a late deflected goal, at which point we can always throw a few bars of soap at them from the stands in order to ensure they clear off pronto and the correct result follows.

Someone is sounding a bit nervous already about this and trying the reverse psychology, throwing is some childish insults along the way too. I don't remember the pitch being even damp against Brighton the other night when we stuffed them 3-0 or most of pitches last season being that bad when we won the league and were how many points we ended up ahead of you.
I won't lower myself to your level with the name calling, it does rather show a lack of maturity and you would do yourself credit to, by trying to add the thread with good clean banter or facts. Without the name calling it could have been quite funny.

I showed a similar lack of maturity throughout medical school as well, old sauce.

It's a good job you're not childish when you're picking potatoes, or this country would really be going to the cleaners.
