Safe travels to anyone travelling on Saturday, make some noise for.the boys!

My question is, is the game being streamed anywhere abroad? I can't seem to find any information anywhere about it

Should be a decent game - both sides under new management - play like last night and we will give them a decent game

Many sold for us do we know?

Not been to this new Oxford ground but looking online it looks like a slightly bigger Sixfields

I’d be surprised if we don’t shift all 1497. Not sure if there’s any left. Probably there are as you might expect to hear that they’d all gone (if they had). Could be a good game.

It’s a lot bigger than Sixfields, but with only three sides. Oxford’s a cracking city, it’s a real shame the ground is nowhere near the centre of it. Their new one, if it goes ahead, won’t be either, but would be much better connected by public transport, a la the Amex at Brighton.

Agree totally with this. Some great pubs in the city centre. Not been there for 5 years though so couldn’t say what’s around there now. According to the grounds guide, you can get a pint and food at the ground though.

Not to be the party pooper after last night’s enjoyable game, but do we see this game as a potential victim of the weather? According to the BBC, it’s forecast to get mightily cold towards the end of the week and into the weekend; set to drop below zero at 5pm on the Friday and not due to get back above until 11am on the Saturday.

From a quick Google, Oxford have covers but not undersoil heating, and had a game called off against Barnsley in early December last year, after a 9:30am pitch inspection. It doesn’t look as though it will get quite as cold as it did then though (due to be -3 as opposed to -7), which might just be the saving grace. Something to keep an eye on though, if you’re going.
