Fan’s View 2019/20 – No. 1 -Pre-season

July 10, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

PRE-SEASON 2019/20 Another close season that’s just disappeared The Champions League final (has there ever been a bigger anti-climax of a football match?) was a whole month after our last league fixture and then we had the Women’s World Cup where our gallant girls followed in the path trodden by their male counterparts in proving  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.54 – Luton away

May 6, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

LUTON AWAY Luton Town are a football club that I think it is fair to say are generally not liked. In fact I would go as far as saying hated, and I don’t use that word lightly, after all football is a sport and life is too short but there’s no denying there’s a history  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.53 – Doncaster at home

DONCASTER AT HOME Pre-match We’ve not been involved in a single league game this season that has been irrelevant regarding the outcome of automatic promotion/the fight for a play-off slot or battle against the dreaded drop. Quite amazing really with this being our penultimate fixture. The top five will remain the top five with any  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.52 – Shrewsbury away

April 23, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

SHREWSBURY TOWN 2 OXFORD UNITED 3 Sitting pretty on 56 points before this fixture, it was really easy as an Oxford fan to state that 50 points, which was the total our hosts had acquired, is bound to be enough to ensure survival. Naturally Shrews fans had a rather different idea. Bradford have gone but  more ]

Fan’s view – 18/19 – no.51 – Charlton at home

April 20, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

OXFORD UNITED 2 CHARLTON ATHLETIC 1 There have been many dark periods this season. We lost the first four league games. In both September/October and December/January we had a spell where we acquired just two points from six games. The latter was ended by beating Pompey at the Kassam but we couldn’t follow that up  more ]

Fan’s View -18/19 – no.50 – Wimbledon at home

WIMBLEDON AT HOME Pre-match thinking In the last ten years the team going down from League One occupying 21st place in the table, the last of the relegation slots, has never got more than 50 points. In 2011/12 just 44 points were required to survive. Only rock bottom Bradford cannot now overtake us but as  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no. 49 – Walsall away

April 7, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

WALSALL 1 OXFORD UNITED 3 Walsall away is a fixture that is so very easy to attend by train. Bicester North to Moor Street only takes about an hour then New Street to just outside the ground a further 20-30 mins. The short walk between the two Birmingham stations obviously takes a very long time  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.48 – Wycombe at home

WYCOMBE AT HOME The build up This season our home form has been way better than that on our travels with, prior to our visit to the Ricoh last Saturday, just over two thirds of our total points being gained at the Kassam. Coventry were an in form team one place below a play-off slot.  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.47 – Coventry away

COVENTRY AWAY Bradford aftermath / Sky Blue anticipation I knew there were reality checks to be had after the euphoria and subsequent scarcely believable drama that followed the Mackie moment. I however chose to ride the warm glow well into the week before giving this serious contemplation. A few others took a different stance. So  more ]
