Passed away yesterday just before kick off a life long fan.
I am sure we all wished that.I didn't know Alan, but I do recognise him. How absolutely tragic this is, and what a sense of perspective it gives about yesterday's result.
Am I the only one who read this and wished that Alan had been able to hang on just a couple more hours before passing away?
An update from the daughter, a lovely touch from the club. KR has gone out of his way to get in contact with her:
I have just been speaking to Karl Robinson on the phone to say how sorry they all were about dad. He was so lovely and also spoke to to my son and was so good with him then my 6 year old daughter wanted to speak to him even though she didn't really know who she was talking to!!!
Thought I couldn't love this club anymore than I currently do but Oxford United are more than just a football club they are part of the community and their connection with the fans is amazing
I really hope they can win on Monday night they deserve it so much!!!!
