Fan’s View 2022/23 – No.4 – Carabao Cup Rd 1 – Swansea

August 10, 2022 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 22/23 – NO.4: CARABAO CUP ROUND ONE Carabao Cup This is a competition that attracts little attention at the first round stage but I quite like it. Even though we’ve got ’86 it will never as a competition match the FA Cup with all its rich history and folklore but it does have  more ]

Fan’s View 2022/23 – No.3 – Cambridge at home

August 7, 2022 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 22/23 – NO.3: CAMBRIDGE AT HOME Our opponents Cambridge spent nine seasons in the Conference, from 2005/06 – 2013/14 and then seven in L2 before returning to tier three for the first time in 20 years last season. Although they started as one of the favourites to go straight back down they survived  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 22/23 – NO.2: DERBY AWAY More so than ever I had intended to cut down on the size of these Views but I’ve started off doing anything but with the potential that this could turn out to be the longest ever. There’s a good reason for that though. The team we play in  more ]

Fan’s View 2022/23 – No.1 – The Build Up

July 25, 2022 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 22/23 – NO.1 THE BUILD UP I rarely produce a FV in one sitting and certainly not when it’s a pre-season preview. I have no deadlines unlike in real journalism. This approach though brings a big challenge. New signings change things. That balance between pessimism and optimism as to what lies ahead keeps  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.50 Well done to this lot for travelling down OXFORD UNITED 1 DONCASTER ROVERS 1 Fifty, that’s a nice round number to finish with. Obviously I wish it had been more. Fifty three would have done nicely especially with a joyous positive write up in the last. But we knew before  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.49 ROTHERHAM UNITED 2 OXFORD UNITED 1 Oxford fans full of hope in the Bridge before the game  I set out for South Yorkshire in optimistic mood. I came away thinking that while we’d not been terrible, far from it, we’d not been anywhere near good enough to win this game  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.48 – MK Dons at home

April 21, 2022 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.48 – MK AT HOME Three games to go This is the third last game of the regular season for both of us and our visitors will very much have belief that they can grab that second automatic promotion slot from Rotherham. Even if we still didn’t have the faintest of  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.47 – FLEETWOOD AWAY Get there early??? I know I do go on but once again I have to absolutely go into wtf mode. This from the official OUFC site under Fleetwood away tickets – “Supporters should enter the stadium via the turnstiles indicated on their ticket approximately 90 minutes before  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.46 – SUNDERLAND AT HOME Pre-match pondering? The enormity of this game goes without saying. It would have been a very big one anyway but after we’d failed at Plymouth and Morecambe on the back of just getting a point against Ipswich, many think if we don’t take maximum points from  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.45 Whatever I might have written below the “Forever” is the thing to cling on to. We’ll all be back on Saturday.  MORECAMBE 2 OXFORD UNITED 1 This time I really do intend to keep it brief. I don’t think what I’m seeing at the moment, particularly here, is worthy of  more ]
