I know what you mean!From the other stands it looked like the London Road, when full, just went back and back right into the roof. And produced a fantastic noise. I remember the electric atmosphere of Oxford v Chelsea FA Cup 4th round 1999 under the lights. Due to some dubious refereeing that night we were held to a draw by the Premiership league leaders, but completely out playing them. The London Road end were an extra player that night!
As a former Osler Roader, I used to love the sight of London Road, full to bursting, roaring out all of our songs!
God I miss that place, I've been to many stadiums around the country over the years, but none of them can match the cauldron like atmosphere of The Manor when it was bouncing.
It was a shithole, but it was OUR shithole!
