SEASON 2020/21 No.38 HULL AWAY If you know your history Every away game without fans is a day out following the boys that we’ll never get back. This one is lamented more than many others by quite a few because for them it would have been a new ground ticked off. Hull City moved from  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 No.37 SWINDON AWAY Pre-match musings The build-up is so far removed from the usual. I’m sat in front of my computer screen twiddling my thumbs with just under two hours to the off so thought I’d twiddle some fingers too and bang a few words out. This is THE game. THE game because  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 No.36 CHARLTON AT HOME Sad Times I was sat at the kitchen table this Saturday morning eating my breakfast when my wife said, “Mickey Lewis has died”.  My reply was “What?” as in that can’t be true but sadly it was. I knew he wasn’t as old as me but hadn’t realised how  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.35 – Peterborough at home

March 3, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.35 PETERBOROUGH AT HOME Our opponents From 2009 Peterborough played three of the next four seasons at Championship level. They’ve not been back since their relegation in 2012/13 and have been in L1 ever since never being close to dropping further. On checking how they finished in each of those campaigns I was  more ]

SEASON 2020/21 No.34 – MILTON KEYNES AWAY Taking stock As a fan with so much emotion invested in my football club I’m constantly taking stock with regard to our strength both on and off the field. As for the latter I’ve kind of parked the financial issues which Covid has brought to professional football, L1  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.33 – Portsmouth at home

SEASON 2020/21 No.33 – PORTSMOUTH AT HOME Pre-match thinking I was able to attend those two home league games when a few fans were permitted to cross the threshold but it was all very eerie. Whilst preferable to being sat in front of iFollow it was miles removed from the match day buzz of old  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.32 – Ipswich away

February 21, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.32 – IPSWICH AWAY I had begun to wonder if my frostiness towards the EFL Trophy was beginning to thaw a little or whether I should actually make a concerted effort to embrace it. Since Premier League U21 teams were allowed to participate I’ve expressed my contempt time after time. I have always  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.31 – Wigan at home

February 14, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.31 – WIGAN AT HOME Our opponents The last time Wigan visited the Kassam, the day before Christmas Eve in 2017, they humiliated us beyond understanding to the tune of 7-0. There were no lessons learned for Pep Clotet in the manner of a Ralph Hasenhüttl after Leicester put nine past his Saints  more ]

BRISTOL ROVERS 0 OXFORD UNITED 2 This was back to playing a team in the mid to lower reaches of the table and we know full well from our winning run that we can beat such sides. Although nothing can be taken for granted it was normal service resumed here result wise but the performance  more ]

Fan’s View 2020/21 – No.29 – Doncaster away

February 7, 2021 - Added by Paul Beasley

SEASON 2020/21 No.29: DONCASTER AWAY Strengthening your hand Every season during the January transfer window and the longer summer one come to that, some fans end up going into a frenzy for no logical reason. Of course there is interest in who might be coming in and who is going out but why on earth  more ]
