*Your* Oxford United

Post by Jimski » Wed Nov 27, 2013 7:45 pm

I wanted to ask: what is this "Your Oxford United" nonsense? It's getting beyond bloody irritating. I think it only started this season, didn't it? I have half an idea it might have something to do with our openin match at Portsmouth, where naturally they were using such pronouns to celebrate the fan ownership. But outside that context it's just bloody meaningless and cheap. I do hope the language of fan ownership isn't going to be co-opted by clubs for whom fan ownership isn't a reality.

To be honest, even if the fans *did* own the club, I'd likely be getting irritated by this patronising language by now. But at least there'd be genuine reason to use it.
