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

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

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 ]

Fan’s View 23/24 – No.29: Coventry away

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.29: COVENTRY AWAY F.A. CUP ROUND THREE: COVENTRY CITY 6 OXFORD UNITED 2 We were always the underdogs coming into this cup tie. Their form in the Championship is better than ours is in L1. Unlike us they don’t have a horrendous injury list. My main hope was that the Sky  more ]

Fan’s view 23/24 – No.28: Charlton away

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.28: CHARLTON AWAY CHARLTON ATHLETIC 1 OXFORD UNITED 2 Unlike last season there was no strike preventing travel by rail so it was a meet up in the George in Southwark. It might be Greene King but it’s a fine old building, the last galleried coaching inn remaining in London even  more ]

Fan’s View 23/24 – No.27: Derby at home

December 31, 2023 - Added by Paul Beasley

FAN’S VIEW 23/24 – NO.27: DERBY AT HOME There’s a strong argument that Derby are the biggest club in League One this season. Their average home gate of 26,356 is by far the best in the division. They were in the Premier League in 2007/08. A 21 point deduction for breaching the EFL’s Profitability and  more ]
