Strange how Oxford united are at home on the same day at the same time.

It's hardly Liverpool and Everton!

Hi, Oxford Utd fan here (though often go to watch very local side Oxford City). Re: pubs - avoid the chainy pubs in George St & head towards Broad St where you've got the excellent White Horse, Kings Arms & Turf Tavern. If you want a decent drink within walking distance of the ground head to the Victoria Arms in Old Marston (link below). Its a great pub right on the river Cherwell & you could wander up to the ground in 10-15 mins.

You'll be made very welcome at City & there'll be no repeat of the distasteful incidents that marred your previous visits to Oxford. I've heard a whisper that a rep from OUFC will be checking out Reeves but then I guess every club is looking at him at the moment.

All the best & enjoy your trip......

Thanks alot for the info, sure we are all gratefull.

But you don't want Reeves! He's sh*t, he plays like he has a twisted ankle most the time (never running and never alert) We best keep him here where he has a couple of friends that hand him the goals when he never actually deserves them. So go ahead and let the Oxford Utd scout know he doesn't have to waste his time on him!

Maybe look at Scott Spencer of Hyde or Leighton McGivern? Ofcourse you'll have to find him first!

I'm sure we're all appreciative of the thought, but let's have it right, the Kings Arms and Turf Tavern are both chain pubs. And although the White Horse is worth a visit, it's bloody tiny. Two dozen people in there and there's not an inch to spare.

Far From The Madding Crowd is a better bet. Certainly pre-match, anyway.

Looking forward to my first game of the season with Dad - decent local game for us both as he is in High Wycombe.

The Mrs has decided to tell me now that her brother and his bird are coming round at 3 for a barbecue. Livid

He's a chef so he shouldn't have any bother firing it up on his own. We better win today, the fallout from this could drag on a bit.

Man-up, lads. What kind of invasion game sees people crying off for BBQs and birthday parties at the last minute?

If only, I was really looking forward to this one too. Why don't people have parties when we are away at Vauxhall Motors or somewhere?

Hard to say as we spread out the most ever all around the ground.  I reckon 80-90.

I'd have guessed around 100.
