Is it going to happen, or have I been imagining it? Not the same without a bit of colour behind us!
Bring back the east stand flags and we'll return to winning ways..... oops forgot the tax exiled stadium landlord (& self appointed custodian of OUFC) stadco set up have, after many years, decided to cite Health and safety as thier reason for NOT allowing flags at the back of the east stand
If the mural takes as long as the training ground to get completed, its gonna be quite a while before any mural appears , especially given the contempt the admin side of OUFC seem to currently have for the fan base, given the rubbish performances in the league so far, that still cost £25 (or more ) to witness!!
Actually the mural is more of an OxVox project and I can assure you that better people than myself are doing a lot of work to pull it all together. Part of the problem in sourcing pictures without copyright on them. We are getting there and I promise to keep you updated with progress. We also met with Ian Mixter before the game yesterday to look over the fabulous OxRails. We were really impressed and with help we may be able to expand this trial. He is also confident the banners will be back up soon and it does actually seem to be a health and safety issue (it's gone mad apparently!). I personally really miss the colour and he is confident they should be back up by the time the cameras arrive for the Cov game.
its a tough one that isnt going to please everyone, as it donations people can pledge any amount so in case above, person a puts 1p in and gets a vote, person b puts £1k in but still gets one vote - no real differenceHate to be a "moaner" but......

Surely the vote should be by those who have put their hands in their pockets?
I presume there is already a shortlist of images then."The final choice of images will be decided via a public vote, available to all fans, the details of this are to be announced shortly. "
