So here it is the 125th anniversary game. Plenty of colour and a large(ish) noisy home crowd, what could possibly go wrong? 3-0 to the mighty er, oranges!
The more I'm exhorted to enjoy myself the less I seem to do so.
Blackbird runs out of Red Stripe. Half'n Half Headington / Shrewsbury scarves turn out to be just Shrews scarves, massive queue to get into North Stand followed by massive HT queue for a P**s, fights break out at food and drink area over queuing protocol, constant stream of nice people apologising for edging past me throughout match because they're "not used to mixing Red Stripe and Quince Tequila", a 18-plate Jaguar recreational vehicle gets tangled with a Range Rover Equipe at exit to carpark and delays everyone exiting for 1 hour while they swap insurance deatils and photos of holidays in Bali, man gets mud on mustard trousers and sues OCC, Priory falls down, Dave Cudd arrested. That's about all I can bear.
Really? Swansea, Newcastle spring to mind?
Yeah, thinking about it you probably are right. Woking.....I had forgotten about that.Fair enough, I meant the bread and butter league games. Plymouth was one I think on Boxing Day where loads of first timers were immediately turned off OUFC for life. Woking in the Conference with people sleeping off their Christmas meal in the stands while Rufus Brevett trots up and down the byline? We did beat Wycombe and the scum in front of good crowds, mind.
Just seems like every time there is a concerted effort to push a game against an opponent who wouldn't normally fill the ground we end up making a right horlicks out of it...
