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

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]

ANOTHER CHAPTER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR FOOTBALL CLUB AND YOU COULDN’T MAKE THIS ONE UP OXFORD UNITED 1 BRADFORD CITY 0 I’ve been watching OUFC for many many decades now and thought it very unlikely to witness anything really new. That proved to be very wrong. In all that time a game comes along  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.45 – Rochdale away

March 13, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

ROCHDALE 0 OXFORD UNITED 0 Would we have scored if we were shooting at two goals? Looking out of my window at mid-day it was pouring down and the wind had knocked over all four of our dustbins. There were yellow weather warnings for the Greater Manchester area and it really was one of those  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – No.44 – Gillingham Away

March 10, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

GILLINGHAM AWAY Pre-match thinking Although we gained maximum points from the two games prior, in no way had that alleviated the pressure. Depending on the way the results were to go on Saturday come five o’clock we could be anywhere in the table from 21st (boo) to 13th (hurrah!). All games are tough games. That’s  more ]

Fan’s View – 18/19 – no.43 – Scunthorpe at home

March 3, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

SCUNTHORPE AT HOME Pre-match thinking Stuart McCall was appointed manager of the Iron in August 2018. On Boxing Day they lost 2-0 at home to Luton. That in itself was no disgrace given the season the Hatters are having but it was their sixth straight defeat in the League and left them second bottom, having  more ]
