The U's Tamed the Tigers from Hull yesterday, beating the league favourites 2-1 to continue the amazing run to the start of the season, to add to it, getting Reading in the next round of the cup, that will sure be a sell out at the Kassam Stadium.
Steve Basham was again the hero of the day, though the day ended in fury when Julian Alsop was sent off, picking up his 2nd booking of the day when he clattered into the keep, the result of that challenge was a free for all in the goal mouth, Alsop then walked off and showed his anger to the Hull bench when he walked past, Alsop did clatter into keeper Musselwhite, but then his first booking of the day was the biggest joke, Alsop never even touched the Hull player, he fell over his own feet, So Alsop from then onwards was walking on a thin line.
Basham taps in from 3 yards out Alsop clatters into Musselwhite
Free for all as they pile into the goal mouth Alsop (right) is shown the red card
Alsop shows his anger at the Hull bench Basham shoved out of the way by Musselwhite!!!!!!!!!

Oxford Entertain Hull City tomorrow at the Kassam Stadium, in what isn't just the first home league game of the season, but is likely to be the biggest Home league game of the season, strange saying that for the first game, but Hull are the bookies favourites to go up as champions and a good crowd is expected, though Hull never bring many down to Oxford, they might just surprise us for this match.
You can expect to see the same team that started at lincoln, if Julian Alsop has recovered in time, though Atkins won't have any worries about playing the same team as Tuesday night in Millwall,
Although playing one up front at the Kassam Stadium might cause a bit of a stir with the home faithful.
Tomorrow is the last day that you can vote for names to call the executive boxes at the Kassam Stadium, All great names from the past will surely get voted in, Ron Atkinson, Arthur Turner, Jim Smith, Malcolm Shotton, Gary Briggs, Roy Burton, John Aldridge, David Kemp(NOT)...........
OK I was just making sure that you were taking notice of this, this is something that will be remembered at the ground for a long time, so make sure all your votes are serious and are people that are not involved with the club at this present time.
My suggestion would be the Andrew Knapton Suite.......That was what we had tried for from the start.
The Carling Cup draw for the 2nd round will be done at 5.15pm tomorrow, so make sure you are near the TV in the quad bar after the game to find out who we have got.

First of all a big sorry to a certain person, they will know who they are, I don't upset many people, but this certain person means a lot to me (from the Editor).
Tomorrow will hopefully be the 2nd win of the season when we enter the Lions Den, all seating for this match is on the upper tiers, So those with No head for heights should stay away, Ticket prices on the Millwall site, say £8 for Adults and £5 Senior citizens and £2 for Under 16's.
Get there early, as parking is restricted and there is also the congestion Charge if you are driving through London, So park up on the outskirts of London and take the Tube into London, head for London and get the rail direct to the ground.
More news Later.
