OXFORD UNITED 1 SUNDERLAND 1 A draw obviously yields just a single point but that is so much sweeter when achieved by coming from behind. A lead conceded naturally leaves you feeling deflated to a greater or lesser degree. What made this particular point gained even more satisfying was that it was not only against  more ]

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 ]

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.29 – Blackpool at home

BLACKPOOL AT HOME The opposition Blackpool FC is still owned by an Oyston. From afar it is all very confusing and seemingly a bit incestuous. The current “owner” I believe is still Owen. One of his four daughters, Natalie Christopher, is chairwoman. She replaced Karl as chair back in February. Karl is Owen’s son and  more ]

PETERBOROUGH AWAY Weekly news and conjecture With regard to the monies owed to HMRC, the Oxford Mail reported on Mon Dec 3 that “it is understood the payment – believed to be a six-figure sum – was paid earlier today” and that the next step would be for an application to withdraw the case.

Fan’s View 18/19 – no.27 – FA Cup Round Two

December 3, 2018 - Added by Paul Beasley

… Not that the FA Cup has the magic of yesteryear anyway whatever some commentators and pundits would have us believe as they try to talk up the product their employers have purchased. These are very different times to when Ricky George scored that late winner against Newcastle United. That Newcastle side was 100% a genuine first team …

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]
