Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.18 – Swindon at home

November 28, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.18: Oxford United 1 Swindon Town 2 Whether sat in one’s living room or the stands this is such an emotive fixture that to come up with rational analysis is much more difficult than normal. I will though give it a go. Overall I thought we deserved at least a  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.17 – Pompey away

November 25, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.17: POMPEY AWAY Pre-match There are good teams and bad teams in L1. Pompey with 16 points from the last 21 fall into the first category whilst Wigan, the team we got that much needed win against last game, are clearly one of the latter, through the fault of Hong  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.16 – Wigan away

November 21, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.16: WIGAN AWAY Pre-match I had thought of producing a list of the many glaring weaknesses that have become increasingly clear to almost all observers as our game count grows (after the Swindon game we’ll have completed a quarter of the league season). Things like – no midfield creativity, no  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.15 – Crewe at home

November 18, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

AT THE THIRD TIME OF ASKING – OXFORD UNITED 0 CREWE ALEXANDRA 2 Obviously no Oxford fan, player, employee or anyone with a stake in the club can have been happy with our start to the season and that was before this numbing 90 minutes. In every FV I’ve ever written I’ve called it as  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.14 – FA Cup Round One

November 9, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.14 – FA CUP ROUND ONE Pre-match thinking – Should we be bothered? How bothered should we be about this tie in the greater scheme of things? Prize money has been reduced which is understandable given that the F.A’s income stream has been hit with no spectators being able to  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.13 – Rochdale at home

November 4, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

OXFORD UNITED 3 ROCHDALE 1 NB: This FV was finished around lunch time on Wednesday but thanks to Virgin not published until later. They were an ISP I would have recommended until a couple of months ago but no more. Regular loss of service in our area for hours on end now. I assume it  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.12 – FLEETWOOD AWAY The build up No beers in here this season Build up? Is there much of this when there’s no anticipation of the journey up the M6, then M55, leaving the car in the appropriately named Park Avenue, walking to the Royal Oak for decent northern beers  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.11 – Charlton away

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.11 – CHARLTON AWAY (& not SWINDON AT HOME) Swindon and Covid Immediately after the MK Dons game I got twitchy because I had not received my iFollow code for the Swindon game. Turns out I needn’t have worried but I did manage to locate it in my spam folder.  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.10 – Milton Keynes at home

October 21, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.10 – MK AT HOME How bad? How bad was that, is a question I ask after most defeats and continue to keep pondering long after I’ve let part of my frustration out into the wild in the form of these FVs. Probably the question I should be mulling over  more ]
