Terribly sad news this morning that a true legend of the terraces passed away last night. Jeff James, known to many simply as Black Jeff would be recognised by most of you even if you didn't know him. One of the funniest, kindest people I've ever known, the world, and OUFC, will be a poorer place without him.

RIP Jeff my friend.

Wow, shocked by this. Remember Jeff from way back. A real character and always genuine and kind (he saved me from a beating on the Kidlington bus before either of us were old enough to drive, back when it mattered if you got off at Cutterslowe or Kidlington). Only really on nodding terms over the years but was definitely and Oxford man through and through. The fact that I have already bumped into three people today who remember him fondly speak volumes I guess.

RIP Jeff

I saw him up in London a week last Saturday for chat. Didn't know him, but one of those people who was so polite, always said hello.
One of those faces you saw around the Manor. I will never forget Crewe away, 1996 I think, we all crowded into the seating area. Jeff had had a few, and sat next to an elderly lady, a Crewe fan, and he was the perfect gentleman.
