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 ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.19 – Ipswich away

November 14, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.19 IPSWICH TOWN 0 OXFORD UNITED 0 There wasn’t that much goal mouth action nor sustained spells of smooth link up flowing football with either side getting the other on the ropes and giving the impression that they were genuinely about to win the game. Yet this was a fantastic game  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.18 FA CUP ROUND ONE: OXFORD UNITED 2 BRISTOL ROVERS 2 From time to time when churning out these Fan’s Views I feel obliged to say that I am largely a big fan of Karl Robinson and think he’s doing a fine job for our football club. There are however occasions  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.17 OXFORD UNITED 3 MORECAMBE 1 I don’t know if it is because I write these Fan’s Views or if my mind would automatically do it anyway but brief one sentence summaries keep forming in my head as every Oxford game I watch progresses. It’s as if I feel a need  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.16 – Burton away

October 24, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.16 BURTON ALBION 1 OXFORD UNITED 3 Overall this season up to Saturday I’ve not been overly impressed with what we’ve achieved. It’s been okay but nothing more. Whilst never being concerned we’d struggle near the bottom, neither had I taken from our better performances – and there have been some  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.15 – Shrewsbury at home

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.15 OXFORD UNITED 2 SHREWSBURY TOWN 0 Think I’ll start with a no shit Sherlock statement – A win is a win. Then follow up with having none of the “winning when not playing well is the sign of a good team” way of thinking. And finishing with if we play  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No. 14 – Plymouth at home

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.14 OXFORD UNITED 1 PLYMOUTH ARGYLE 3 Argyle arrived at Minchery Farm top of the league and departed top of the league. I’d say they were the best team we’ve played in the League so far this season. Form comes and goes and as only three from 24 go up I  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.13 – Sheffield Wednesday away

October 3, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.13 It’s almost impossible to resist noting which are the big clubs and which are the small clubs now swimming in the same pool as us. Funny how no one ever says such and such is an average size club for the division they’re in and therefore exactly where they belong.  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.12 – Accrington at home

September 29, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.12 Since our first encounter back in 2010 we’ve played Accrington many times making them very familiar opponents. Every time I feel almost obliged to say small club, small budget and small fan base, punching above their weight and then go on to praise them for what they have achieved and  more ]

Fan’s View 2021/22 – No.11 – Gillingham at home

September 26, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 21/22 – NO.11 This was a game I wasn’t particularly looking forward to. Whilst we got out of the blocks rather better this season than most recent ones overall it has still turned out a bit underwhelming eight games in. The weaknesses in both performances and the squad are now quite evident and  more ]
