The U's fell to the O's at Brisbane Road yesterday from a single goal that demoralized the U's players as neither team looked like scoring, Woody made a superb save in the first half to keep them out, then the killer goal came in the 2nd half to put the U's into action, they threw all the strikers on, Rawle, Louis and Steele, they all tried, but in vain, but the O's keeper had to pull off a great save at the end to deny the U's a point and send the 1320 Oxford fans home unhappy for the 3rd time this season, the crowd was only 5,433.

Just off to the Capital in a while on the train to Orient, not the express though, I am a bit frail after having an accident at work and injuring my back, so if anyone wants to come along and help carry my bags for me they are more than welcome.
The team should be the same as, lets have a repeat of the result there last season, the Oxford fans this time though should be in a different stand to last time, they should be behind the goal at the open end of the ground.

Oxford travel to the capital tomorrow to visit the Orient, looking to put more pressure on the leading two, it makes a change to be playing in London on a Saturday as the last 2 trips to Leyton have been midweek matches and ruin any chance of a day out in the big smoke, Oxford play their last match without Big Jules as he looks likely to be back for the Scunny game in midweek at home, tomorrow spells the end of Richie Foran's loan to Oxford from Carlisle, who knows if it will be the last game he ever plays for the U's, he is out of contract at the Cumbrian strugglers at the end of the season and could move down south if Ian Atkins has his way.
Oxford are having work done to the Kassam Stadium stands to make sure they are all safe for the next game at the stadium on Wednesday after the high winds damaged the structures on Saturday during the Kidderminster game, all works should be completed by Tuesday and all fans should be reassured that it will be safe for them to return to their normal seats if they sit in the South Stand for home matches.

Lets hope that he can continue his goal getting tomorrow in the capital.

Many thanks to all of you that have already made donations to the Robert Corps memorial fund, Robert pictured below (Front Centre) with his Father Geoff behind him loved Oxford United more than anything, this picture was taken after the group had spent the day in an executive box at the Kassam Stadium.

What a day at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, can anyone ever remember it being as windy at a home game as it was for the Kidderminster game ?
Oxford took a deserved lead on Saturday through Steve Basham, but let a goal in before the break through Adam Murray, ironically Murray was a target of Ian Atkins earlier in the season, how many times has that gone against us in the past, but after the fiasco of a 40 minute interval for the Metal bar hanging above the South Stand it was Paul McCarthy who got the winner for the U's, but the game was never plain sailing for us, Kidderminster played some great football, but the conditions got just too much for both teams, though it was the same for both, Oxford luckily came out the winners, much to Wayne Hatswells disappointment, he was a little down hearted in the bar afterwards, He said that the game should not have been played, but added that it was the same for both teams, Wayne is a nice lad, even though he supported Scumdon as a lad, He is best pals with another Ex Oxford player-Scott Guyett, So I spoke to Wayno alot while up at Chester watching Scott.

Money was Still pouring in for the plaque in memory of Robert Corps on Saturday at the match, All donations are still welcome no matter how small to keep the memory of a very devoted and loving Oxford fan alive at the Kassam Stadium, A Picture of robert will appear here soon(When I can find my scanner after the house move). Many donations have been handed to Roberts dad Geoff, He is overwhelmed by the generosity of the people donating and can't thank people enough, after all the money is for a good cause, for a young lad who loved what we all love, Oxford United FC.
