SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.4 – SUNDERLAND AT HOME But first back to the Carabao Cup What an opportunity I missed and I have to thank Andy McCormac for pointing it out. After reading the Watford FV he came up with this, “Can I just add that one of the Watford goalkeeper’s saves, when  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.3 – WATFORD AT HOME Lack of experience? Computers have programmes working away in the background and I think my brain must behave in a similar way by slowly picking over things Oxford United as I go about my daily life. Every now and again thought and ideas are thrown  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.2 (Leasing / Bubbles / Managers / (Some of) Lincoln away) Leasing.com Trophy Worth bothering with? Not even sure I’d realised that the EFL Trophy was sponsored by leasing.com last season. I still thought it was the Checkatrade which shows how little interest I have in it. It was a  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.1 (A retrospective / Finances / New season / EFL Cup Round One) Looking back I had intended to write a retrospective Fan’s View of the 2019/20 season but never got round to it so here’s a quick stab as it really does merit looking back on as it turned  more ]

Fan’s View – 2019/20 – Play-off Final

July 14, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

LEAGUE ONE PLAY-OFF FINAL The build up After the semi-final I was emotionally drained but clearly in a good way. I was pleased to have a whole week to recover. My approach was to try not to think too much about what was coming. Just relax and get my head ready to, as they say,  more ]

Fan’s View – 2019/20 – no.49 – Play-off Semi-Final Second Leg

LEAGUE ONE PLAY-OFF SEMI-FINAL SECOND LEG The build up It was inevitable that the nerves would kick in again before the re-match but it took a little longer for them to overwhelm me than I had thought. When they did come mid-morning of the match day they were even more forceful than the previous dose.  more ]

Fan’s View – 2019/20 – no.48 – Play-off Semi-Final First Leg

July 4, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

LEAGUE ONE PLAY-OFF SEMI-FINAL FIRST LEG PORTSMOUTH 1 OXFORD UNITED 1 It’s very much a case of as we were. There’s still nothing to separate us from Pompey. The frozen league table shows that we’re only goal difference apart. We drew 1-1 in the standard fixture back in November as we did here. I will  more ]

SHREWSBURY TOWN 2 OXFORD UNITED 3 Fans stood on safe terracing at the back of  the home end Many businesses in the area had been badly hit by the recent floods when the Severn burst its banks and I strongly suspect that if STFC were still located at Gay Meadow in the town centre we  more ]

March 1, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

OXFORD UNITED 2 SOUTHEND UNITED 1 Watford 3 Liverpool 0 yells loud and clear that nothing can be taken for granted in football. A coupon buster if ever there was one. The best odds I could find on an Oxford win against the Shrimpers was 2/7. A Southend supporting mate had a tenner on them  more ]
