FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.23 Oxford United 0 Rotherham United 0 Over the last few days the temperature has dropped dramatically, yes, but the Breeze Block (make that Freeze Block) Stadium takes off a few degrees extra compared to the outside world. That wind chill was quite evil and we’re not even in December yet.  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.22 After Saturday I never for one moment thought that I would be banging out a Fan’s View for this fixture until later in the season. If we win, not a problem but my pre-match opinion is that it’s crazy to play it. An emergency loan goal-keeper brought in at the  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.21 – Wigan away (without any football)

November 21, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.21 WIGAN AWAY (WITHOUT ANY FOOTBALL) Many times in these Fan’s Views I’ve stated the bleedin’ obvious – Covid has not gone away. High profile cases are in the news. Kevin De Bruyne is out for Manchester City this weekend and Eddie Howe couldn’t attend in person his first game in  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.20 F.A. CUP 1st ROUND REPLAY: BRISTOL ROVERS 4 OXFORD UNITED 3 (a.e.t) A game that we didn’t want and should never have had to play but that tired cliché “it is what it is” very much applied, so tickets were bought because as a fan it was my duty to  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.19 IPSWICH TOWN 0 OXFORD UNITED 0 There wasn’t that much goal mouth action nor sustained spells of smooth link up flowing football with either side getting the other on the ropes and giving the impression that they were genuinely about to win the game. Yet this was a fantastic game  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.18 FA CUP ROUND ONE: OXFORD UNITED 2 BRISTOL ROVERS 2 From time to time when churning out these Fan’s Views I feel obliged to say that I am largely a big fan of Karl Robinson and think he’s doing a fine job for our football club. There are however occasions  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.17 OXFORD UNITED 3 MORECAMBE 1 I don’t know if it is because I write these Fan’s Views or if my mind would automatically do it anyway but brief one sentence summaries keep forming in my head as every Oxford game I watch progresses. It’s as if I feel a need  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.16 – Burton away

October 24, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.16 BURTON ALBION 1 OXFORD UNITED 3 Overall this season up to Saturday I’ve not been overly impressed with what we’ve achieved. It’s been okay but nothing more. Whilst never being concerned we’d struggle near the bottom, neither had I taken from our better performances – and there have been some  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.15 OXFORD UNITED 2 SHREWSBURY TOWN 0 Think I’ll start with a no shit Sherlock statement – A win is a win. Then follow up with having none of the “winning when not playing well is the sign of a good team” way of thinking. And finishing with if we play  more ]

October 17, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.14 OXFORD UNITED 1 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 3 Argyle arrived at Minchery Farm top of the league and departed top of the league. I’d say they were the best team we’ve played in the League so far this season. Form comes and goes and as only three from 24 go up I  more ]
