Fan’s View 18/19 – no.4 Carabao Cup Rd 1

August 15, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

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 […]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.3 Fleetwood at home

August 12, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

FLEETWOOD AT THE KASSAM Building a squad I don’t know exactly what caused it, but as the deadline for permanent transfers approached and we’d not done any further business, I have to confess I felt something was amiss and could only see a season of struggle ahead. It was probably a combination of a number […]

Fans View 18/19 – no.2 Barnsley away

August 4, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

BARNSLEY Lots of people who went home very disappointed Slowly building a squad My first FV of the season posted on 23 July covered Ireland and gave a vague opinion of how we’d do this coming season. Since then we’ve signed Marcus Browne and Sam Smith on loan. They can only strengthen the squad but […]

Fan’s View – Summer 2018

July 23, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW – SUMMER OF 2018 Summer, yes. We can truly say we’ve had and are having an absolute scorcher. I like a break from football, it helps with the old relaxation and battery recharging but there’s never really a break as such because no sooner is one season over than we’re wondering and worrying […]

Fan’s View 2017/18 (no.47) – Wigan away

April 19, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

WIGAN ATHLETIC 1 OXFORD UNITED 0 On the fairly silent homeward journey one comment rang very true with me. “If we weren’t where we are that would have been a really boring game of football”. It would have been ridiculous if any side residing in mid-table safety had taken the approach we did. Any team […]

Fan’s View 2017/18 (no.46) – Southend at home

April 15, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

OXFORD UNITED 2 SOUTHEND UNITED 0 Given our remaining fixtures, if we’d not won this one I think there would have been a significant increase in the numbers within our fan base fearing league trips to Newport and Forest Green Rovers next season. The job is still not quite done because whilst 50 points usually […]

Fan’s View 2017/18 (no.45) Fleetwood at home

April 11, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

Oxford United 0 Fleetwood Town 1 Pre-match thinking Having finished 4th last season and seemingly having strengthened for this campaign, I mistakenly thought from the odds available back in August that they were a very good bet for promotion. That’s not how it played out. On January 13 they were 11th – one place below […]
