Fan’s View 18/19 – no.27 – FA Cup Round Two

December 3, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

… Not that the FA Cup has the magic of yesteryear anyway whatever some commentators and pundits would have us believe as they try to talk up the product their employers have purchased. These are very different times to when Ricky George scored that late winner against Newcastle United. That Newcastle side was 100% a genuine first team …

Plymouth Argyle at the Kassam Stadium Feelings in the week prior to the game Track 13 on “No-One Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your Fuckin’ Hedge Cut” by Half Man Half Biscuit is exactly what I do when it comes to that irritating competition we had to play in on Tuesday night. If  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.16 – Southend away

October 7, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

Southend United 0 Oxford United 0 Not Premier League There should be positives of a sort to be found in this result. Roots Hall is rarely a happy hunting ground for us, with our last league win there being in 2003 under Ian Atkins, and the Shrimpers had won their previous three games. So we  more ]

Oxford United 1 Luton Town 2 Photo, Simon Jaggs Walking around the Kassam stadium about half an hour before kick off the place felt dead. No vibe, no atmosphere, nothing to entice one inside. At the present time away supporters must be loving coming here more than they have ever done. If you went to  more ]

AFC Wimbledon 2 Oxford United 1 I have never been a fan who rants and raves early doors when the club is under the tenure of a new manager even when things are not going well at all. Whatever one may think it is only fair to give them time to prove themselves. Even if  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.13 – Man City

September 26, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

CARABAO CUP ROUND THREE: OXFORD UNITED 0 MANCHESTER CITY 3 Whilst being quite happy with the draw, the visit of such illustrious opponents hadn’t got me quite as excited as some. I (usually) look forward to every competitive Oxford game be it against the Premier League Champions or a team from tier seven such as  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.12 – Walsall at home

September 23, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

WALSALL Pre-match thoughts The Saddlers come to the Kassam in the last play-off slot on the same points as Barnsley and Sunderland. We all know where we are languishing. Yet in the previous four league games we’ve picked up the same number of points as our opponents, five. I’d also argue that we played reasonably  more ]

Fan’s View – no.11 – Wycombe away

September 16, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

WYCOMBE The build up The importance of this game could not be over-emphasised given our precarious standing in the table.  But it’s just seven games in and as with the Coventry fixture, a win would take us above our opponents. In that game against the Sky Blues we got what we deserved and rightly remained  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.10 – Coventry at home

COVENTRY AT THE KASSAM Sunday lunch put back for a couple of hours I can’t remember the last time we had a kick-off put back from Saturday at 3 o’clock to midday on Sunday for the TV cameras but compared to fans of Premier League sides we’ve got it easy when it comes to the  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.9 – Sunderland away

September 3, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

SUNDERLAND 1 OXFORD UNITED 1 When the fixtures came out this was the game more Oxford fans had an eye out for than any other. For tier 3 the Blacks Cats are an absolutely massive club. This is only the second season in their history that they’ve had to play at this level, the other  more ]
