December 27, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

(FESTIVE) SEASON 2020/21 – No.23: COVID / BALLOT / WIMBLEDON AT HOME Firstly in these most challenging of times I hope everyone connected with OUFC had the most pleasant of Christmas Days possible in the circumstances and that 2021 eventually brings positive cheer as far as our football club is concerned. That sentiment naturally extends  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.22 – Northampton at home

December 18, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.22 Oxford United 4 Northampton Town 0 There’s plenty more than ninety plus minutes of football that could be discussed, but given time is at a premium in this pre-Christmas period, shopping, putting decorations up and watching wall to wall football on Sky and Amazon Prime, best to stick with  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.21 – Blackpool away

December 12, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.21: BLACKPOOL AWAY But first Papa John’s Perhaps, just perhaps, my attitude to this competition is changing very slightly but nowhere near enough yet to attend in person even though until last Saturday I’ve been starved of the real thing over the last nine months. Also as I was lucky  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.20 – Hull at home

December 6, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.20: HULL AT HOME Fans are back but it was never going to be a case of everything is tickety-boo Whatever method the club chose to make tickets available to fans for this game was never going to please everyone. Whilst acknowledging that these are the most difficult and challenging  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.19 – Ipswich at home

December 1, 2020 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 – FAN’S VIEW No.19: IPSWICH AT HOME Pre Ipswich or more truthfully post Swindon After our second half horror show on Saturday I just wanted to forget it ever happened that’s why I banged out a short FV in double quick time. Thing is though it can’t be forgotten however hard I try.  more ]

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 ]
