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 ]

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

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]

CARABAO CUP SECOND ROUND The forgotten game and the game that never existed With so much focus on the long trek to the North East this coming weekend, this trip to Wales had been rather overlooked. For me it had a great deal of importance. It’s not good for morale to lose to an outfit  more ]

BURTON AT THE KASSAM Late Friday night thoughts Following a football club is about so much more than watching the eleven men that on the day are representing you and your fellow supporters taking on another eleven men once or twice a week during the months of August through to May. There’s the culture, the  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 no.6 – Accrington at home

ACCRINGTON AT THE KASSAM Monday Blues It’s Monday and the cloud of gloom, caused by OUFC’s terrible start to the season, that has descended upon me has not dissipated one bit. In previous FVs I’ve already covered massive problems that it does not take a genius to identify: defence like a sieve; Curtis Nelson half  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 no.5 – Portsmouth away

August 19, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

PORTSMOUTH Previous We’ve played Portsmouth many times over the years and the visits to Fratton Park may have got a bit jumbled and confused as they’ve rested in the old memory bank for so long. My first recollection is of Chris Bloody Kamara getting Mick Tait sent off. Can’t remember the year or the score.  more ]

CARABAO CUP In recent times I’ve really looked forward to the League Cup but for this one it was hard to conjure up much enthusiasm. That’s probably to do with our atrocious start to the season and the fact that, as a L1 outfit, we’re now much less likely to draw a side where we’re  more ]
