MILTON KEYNES AWAY Our opponents At the start of every season When Saturday Comes invite a fan of every club bar one of the 92 to give their view on how they will do in the nine months ahead. The excluded club being Milton Keynes for reasons that many fans across the country will fully  more ]

Fan’s View – 2019/20 – no.25 – Shrewsbury at home

December 8, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

SHREWSBURY AT HOME But first Josh Ruffels – I should have mentioned the lad in the previous FV. What a professional. What a loyal servant and still only 26 years old. Here’s to the next 200 games. And the 200 after that. Recommendations – There’s a seemingly ever increasing amount of football material out there  more ]

Fan’s View – 2019/20 – no.24 – FA Cup Round 2 – Walsall

December 1, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

F.A. CUP ROUND 2 – WALSALL AWAY Our opponents Walsall’s best period in recent(ish) times was at the beginning of the 21st century when they spent four seasons, 1999/2000, 2001/02, 2002/03 and 2003/04 in what is now the Championship. Since then they’ve been a L1 side in all but two seasons. They got relegated again  more ]

SOUTHEND AWAY A week off of sorts Leasing.com With four eligible players being unavailable for Ipswich due to international call ups, their visit to the Kassam scheduled for 17 November never took place which meant a week off from banging out a Fan’s View.

Fan’s View – 2019/20 – no.16 – Gillingham (H)

September 29, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

GILLINGHAM AT HOME Our Opponents I look on the Gills as very much a League One side, one that every now and again may drop down a division but will soon get themselves back up. As for the Championship: almost no chance unless there’s new ownership and major investment. They last played at that level  more ]

Fan’s View 2019/20 – no.15 – EFL Cup Round 3 – West Ham United

September 27, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

EFL CUP ROUND THREE OXFORD UNITED 4 WEST HAM UNITED 0 It’s not very often, if ever, in the history of a football club that back to back performances like we produced at Lincoln and here are put together. They’re both right up there with the most memorable I’ve witnessed in my 50 plus years  more ]

Fan’s View 2019/20 – no.14 – Lincoln Away

September 22, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

LINCOLN AWAY Our Opponents Only a few years back I would say that OUFC were a bigger club than LCFC, quite a bit bigger. Now I’d argue that in the past few seasons we’ve fallen behind the team from Sincil Bank in terms of size. Or more accurately they’ve gone past us on the back  more ]

Fan’s view 2019/20 – no.13 – Bolton Away

September 19, 2019 - Added by Paul Beasley

BOLTON AWAY Bolton Wanderers and Bury are two teams that have been talked about in the same breath when discussion amongst football people has centred on the depressing state of finances in the Football League and the horrendous damage unscrupulous and incompetent owners can bring to bear. Damage that goes beyond the club and deep  more ]
