Fan’s View – no.21 – Scunthorpe away

November 4, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

SCUNTHORPE AWAY Our opponents and their form Scunthorpe had for some time been planning to move away from Glandford Park, a ground they only moved to in 1988, to one very close by, just the other side of the A18. That aim was ditched a year ago when chairman Peter Swann, who owns 87.5% of  more ]

Fan’s view – no.20 – Shrewsbury at home

SHREWSBURY TOWN AT HOME Some OUFC legends 125 YEARS AND COUNTING … THE HOURS TO OUR NEXT GAME There’s so much that goes to make up a football club. It is what it is at any one time but within that it has a fair bit of how it got there, its history including the  more ]

CHARLTON AWAY Pre-match mode I often slip into pre-match mode for our next fixture just hours after I’ve heard a final whistle. This is particularly so when we’re playing twice a week so after Bristol Rovers I was soon pondering how we’d do at the Valley. In the Rover’s FV I said I was hard  more ]

BRISTOL ROVERS AWAY Oxford United: An everyday story of football folk On Monday 15th Oct OxVox members were informed of discussions with Tiger, Club MD Niall McWilliams and Club Director Zaki Nuseibah. The following day Tiger issued a general update for all fans. Anyone who read my previous FV will realise I very much welcome  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.17 – Plymouth at home

Plymouth Argyle at the Kassam Stadium Feelings in the week prior to the game Track 13 on “No-One Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your Fuckin’ Hedge Cut” by Half Man Half Biscuit is exactly what I do when it comes to that irritating competition we had to play in on Tuesday night. If  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.16 – Southend away

October 7, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

Southend United 0 Oxford United 0 Not Premier League There should be positives of a sort to be found in this result. Roots Hall is rarely a happy hunting ground for us, with our last league win there being in 2003 under Ian Atkins, and the Shrimpers had won their previous three games. So we  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.15 – Luton at home

October 4, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

Oxford United 1 Luton Town 2 Photo, Simon Jaggs Walking around the Kassam stadium about half an hour before kick off the place felt dead. No vibe, no atmosphere, nothing to entice one inside. At the present time away supporters must be loving coming here more than they have ever done. If you went to  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.14 – Wimbledon away

AFC Wimbledon 2 Oxford United 1 I have never been a fan who rants and raves early doors when the club is under the tenure of a new manager even when things are not going well at all. Whatever one may think it is only fair to give them time to prove themselves. Even if  more ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.13 – Man City

September 26, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

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 ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.12 – Walsall at home

September 23, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

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 ]
