Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.29 – Lincoln away

January 9, 2022 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.29 LINCOLN CITY 2 OXFORD UNITED 0 Some football fans, possibly the more straight to the point types, or possibly the less articulate ones, have only two settings in response to being asked how their team played: “well” or “shit”. Sometimes even those who mull things over and come up with  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.28 – Cheltenham at home

January 2, 2022 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.28 Covid I’m bloody glad I don’t have to decide on the rules and protocols, be they practically enforceable or not, to be applied in the constant battle against Covid in an ever changing environment. The EFL has now binned match day Covid testing for players. That’s because when a number  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.27 – Wimbledon at home

December 30, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.27 GAME ON Every set of scheduled fixtures now has a large chunk bitten out of it. Tonight only four of the ten L1 matches that were due to take place will go ahead. This is all down to Covid isolation with at times “not enough fit players through injury” slung  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.26 OXFORD UNITED 2 WIGAN ATHLETIC 3 Please tell me why we played this game I suspect I may well have a very different take on this game to the majority of Oxford United supporters. I know for sure that I was getting angry with what was coming over on Radio  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.25 – Milton Keynes away

December 12, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.25 MK DONS 1 OXFORD UNITED 2 Milton Keynes is not a place that appeals to me and the MK Dons is a football team that I dislike intensely but to write a FV in at least a semi objective fashion I have to put prejudices aside and try and give  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.24 – Doncaster away

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.24 Sunderland This was a very strange one for me, not being there. In a way circumstances conspired against me. Our usual chauffeur was not returning south but pushing on up north for work. That normally wouldn’t have stopped me but having to be up at 7 o’clock next morning to  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.23 – Rotherham at home

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.23 Oxford United 0 Rotherham United 0 Over the last few days the temperature has dropped dramatically, yes, but the Breeze Block (make that Freeze Block) Stadium takes off a few degrees extra compared to the outside world. That wind chill was quite evil and we’re not even in December yet.  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – no.22 – Fleetwood at home

November 24, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.22 After Saturday I never for one moment thought that I would be banging out a Fan’s View for this fixture until later in the season. If we win, not a problem but my pre-match opinion is that it’s crazy to play it. An emergency loan goal-keeper brought in at the  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.21 – Wigan away (without any football)

November 21, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.21 WIGAN AWAY (WITHOUT ANY FOOTBALL) Many times in these Fan’s Views I’ve stated the bleedin’ obvious – Covid has not gone away. High profile cases are in the news. Kevin De Bruyne is out for Manchester City this weekend and Eddie Howe couldn’t attend in person his first game in  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.20 F.A. CUP 1st ROUND REPLAY: BRISTOL ROVERS 4 OXFORD UNITED 3 (a.e.t) A game that we didn’t want and should never have had to play but that tired cliché “it is what it is” very much applied, so tickets were bought because as a fan it was my duty to  more ]
