PETERBOROUGH UNITED AT HOME One banner being hastily put up at 10 to 3 OUFC – The future, will it be bright or a dull grey? This week the Oxford Ultras announced that they would be disbanding at the end of this season. Reasons have been given and page after page of comments made on  more ]

BURTON ALBION AWAY Recruitment Thursday – Transfer deadline day. “We must get a striker” has been the mantra for months so when the man coming in on loan was announced as being Jerome Sinclair from Watford there was uproar from some. He’s made eleven league starts at various levels and come on nineteen times, scoring  more ]

BARNSLEY AT HOME This is going to be a very lengthy one given our perilous state, so if you’re only interested in the Barnsley match I suggest you skip to the end. An upside down world PESSIMISM (As at 23 Jan) Yes again. Doom. Gloom. Mistrust. Anger. Following our second half showing at Fleetwood and  more ]

PORTSMOUTH AT HOME PESSIMISM Yes, pessimism. Lots of it. What more can there be under the current regime? Monday afternoon (14/01) arrived with nothing much having changed. The second half at Fleetwood had given a tiny bit of hope but no proper striker had arrived or even a hint that one would. Curtis Nelson and  more ]

FLEETWOOD TOWN AWAY Pre-match pessimism & the window Anyone who knows my stance will obviously know I didn’t venture to Whaddon Road on Tuesday for the Checkatrade game against Cheltenham. Only 136 fewer people turned up for this match than did for the one back in 2014, when I was in attendance, in the supposedly  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.34 – Brentford FA Cup Rd 3

FA CUP ROUND THREE Pre-match pessimism This is likely to be a regular feature of every Fan’s View from now on until there is sound evidence, not smoke and mirrors evasive bullshit, to the contrary. In the lead up to Christmas, with form being what it was, I only had Brentford down as marginal favourites  more ]

PLYMOUTH AWAY Pre-match pessimism Any realistic reporting of our last two games would have made extremely depressing reading for any Oxford United supporter. We looked broken, both as a collective and individually, in many instances. That’s physically and probably mentally too in some cases. Players carrying injuries will obviously be constrained in what they can  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.32 – Bristol Rovers at home

OXFORD UNITED 0 BRISTOL ROVERS 2 Following our drab Boxing Day showing, the fact that I’d somehow managed to pick up a bloody second cold in a fortnight and that Rovers always do us at our place, I wasn’t relishing this one, particularly with a 1 o’clock kick off when I could have done with  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.31 – Southend at home

December 27, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

SOUTHEND AT THE KASSAM On the face of it we should be thanking the man who wrote the software that produces the fixture list? What more can we wish for than a home game on Boxing Day when traditionally there is a much larger gate than the norm. That’s money to be popped into the  more ]

DONCASTER ROVERS AWAY Checkatrade I’ve done this subject to death and find it all a bit wearing. I’ve recently been asking myself whether I should embrace it all as I’m never going to change the world. It’s good to re-evaluate our stance on various matters from time to time. So did I attend the game  more ]
