Also well done for this.
Just some feedback if we do this sort of thing again. I sit in the SSL and could only see half of them. I couldn’t see the half closest to me as the floodlights shone against them, they were too reflective. We need to use Matt finish and not Gloss!

Don't you think a great deal of thought would have gone into deciding matt or gloss? bit of a quick reaction isn't it, because of your position and potentially only when the floodlights are on!

Great by all who worked on this project, but I think the the other design would have been more effective as it’s difficult to see the actual pictures from a distance.

Yes, I do actually know that a great deal of thought went into this, and I am very appreciative of those that gave up their time, but people sat around me were also saying they couldn’t see some of them as well so I thought it better to give feedback now than say nothing at all.
As for a quick reaction I’m sure Oxvox would want feedback now rather than in a months time when I still wouldn’t be able to see all of them next time the floodlights were on!

it just may be something to do with the anti graffiti finish Kassam insisted they use. I can understand some fans getting a glare from the floodlights, but I thought it looked great. Well done to Oxvox.

Ah ok thanks, that makes perfect sense about the anti graffiti stuff. I look forward to seeing in its entirety and full splendour on Saturday!

Having seen it from below in the East Stand I must say it looks good up close. May sit in the south stand for Hartlepool but I'm impressed with it so far.

I sit in SSL lower and if I'm honest, my viewing angle isn't great. However, someone posted pictures of it from the North Stand on Twitter and it looked fantastic.

It definitely has a positive impact in my opinion, even it can't be fully enjoyed by everyone.

Well done to all those involved.

Well done to all involved.
Oxford United Reflections have filled a huge void in the JIM Smith Stand.
