Fan’s View 23/23 – No.39: Orient at home

February 27, 2024 - Added by Paul Beasley

First the good news, the very good news. The planning application for the new stadium at The Triangle has gone in to Cherwell District Council. There will still be “bumps along the road” but this is progress indeed. Now the bad news, the very bad news – the football. Not bumps along the road here.  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – No.38: NORTHAMPTON AT HOME Oxford United 2 Northampton Town 2 None of this mitigating circumstances blah blah blah for me even though I can see why some would claim they exist. None of this but we’re unbeaten in six and are now fifth in the league so everything is just about  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – No.37: WYCOMBE AWAY Wycombe Wanderers 0 Oxford United 0 Prior to the kick off there was a minute’s applause for Adam Ankers, a 17 year old Wycombe season ticket holder and member of the club’s Foundation U19 team. Earlier this month he suffered a cardiac arrest while playing for the team  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – No.36: WIGAN AT HOME Oxford United 4 Wigan Athletic 2 As I walked past the ever rotting Priory – it’s been closed for over 10 years now – on my approach to the ground “Ghost Town” by the Specials entered my head. There was no-one around. Could have been on Craggy  more ]

Fan’s View 23/24 – No.35: Blackpool Away

February 13, 2024 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.35: BLACKPOOL AWAY BLACKPOOL 1 OXFORD UNITED 1 This was a game I nearly didn’t attend. With our reliable fairly regular driver staying away in the area for the weekend I’d volunteered to drive taking two passengers, so three of us. Then down to two due to family commitments. Then covid  more ]

Fan’s View 23/24 – No.34: Reading at home

February 6, 2024 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.34: READING AT HOME As expected Owen Dale signed and went straight into the squad. At Blackpool he was getting a few minutes at the end of games as sub. Another new face in the squad is Jay Matete on loan from Sunderland. If Soccerbase is to be believed he’s not  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.33: PORTSMOUTH AT HOME OXFORD UNITED 2 PORTSMOUTH 2 Unlike some games recently I felt fully engaged throughout. My team took me along on the ride from start to finish. There was heart pumping passion and value for money. “Two-One and you f**ked it up” sang not only the North and  more ]

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.32: BRISTOL ROVERS AWAY BRISTOL ROVERS 3 OXFORD UNITED 1 I now feel as low as I did when we were suffering the last knockings of the Karl Robinson era last season. Our first half performance here was dire. There was some improvement after the break but that was still nowhere  more ]

Fan’s View 23/24 – No.31: Barnsley at home

January 26, 2024 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.31: BARNSLEY AT HOME With the ice putting paid to Northampton’s visit last Saturday our five games in 15 days has become four in 12. Testing times indeed. Make or break? Could end up with 12 points or none. If it was the latter there would be a strong argument that  more ]

Fan’s View 23/24 – No.30: Carlisle away

January 16, 2024 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.30: CARLISLE AWAY The week gone by Monday James Beadle: When he wasn’t in goal for us at Coventry we’d worked this one out. Recalled by Brighton. Immediately off to Sheffield Wednesday was also what was expected. I wouldn’t have thought he would have gone to Hillsborough without the guarantee of  more ]
