Should the stars align and we find ourselves able to get a new home...

How’s that Indian Sign working out for you, Lawro?

Have not seen that first goal from Joey before - what a beaut!
There was some pretty shocking goalkeeping and defending by both teams in that game. Remember the next copy of Raging Bull. Page 53 "Swindon fans, welcome to page 5-3"...
Ha. Will check it out as I have all the Raging Bull/Rage On issues up in the loft.

I don't like the proposed design.

We need to cash in on the Oxford name and reputation as that's what attracted Tiger in the first place. And we need to get the tourists in. So we need to build a mock-Tudor stadium along the lines of a larger Globe theatre. That would please both those who want standing and those who want to sit in the Gods. The kit should be changed to a yellow doublet and blue hose with matching football boots (no gold boots. Looking at you, Jon Obika!). The trainers have to wear those bird beaked plague masks, and may apply leeches to any injured parts. That is both historically accurate and will I suspect drastically reduce the amount of players requiring attention! All pre and post match interviews to be conducted in Shakespearean English, preferably rhyming. Food outlets will sell roast venison (for the Gods) and gruel pies for the rest of us. There will be stocks outside reserved for home players (and managers) who shush their own crowd, ex-landlords and members of the crowd (home or away) who spend more time waving their arms at opposition supporters than actually watching the match. The rest of us may propel the remains of the gruel pies at these unfortunates.

"Heritage". That'll do it.

image000000.jpg Reading the anniversary magazine and loved this old design for a stadium! (and we ended up with a half finished Kassam decades later 😭) Could we dig up the design for this bad boy should we find a site!? 😜 Love the sunken design (mirroring league position gags aside) and I was a fan when I saw the old Besiktas stadium which was part embedded in the ground.

I’ll admit to being no engineer but periods of prolonged heavy rain would scare the cr#p out of me..

gerealiseerd-1.jpg malc posted this on another thread and Wow! That's the stadium 🏟 I would love oxford to have. 22,000 fans close to the action, no empty corners to lose atmosphere through... Imagine looking down on that stadium with yellow seats... Fans in full voice.... Proper melting pot... We could call it 'the Fondue' stadium 😂

Listening to radio 2 at work today, physicist Brian Cox was on the Steve Wright show plugging his arena tour. He went on to list all the cities in the uk he would be visiting. Obviously Oxford wasn’t on there, which I think is ridiculous for a city of its size and standing. Also a little embarrassing. It’s obvious Oxford is crying out for facilities and amenities that could all be linked in with a new stadium

Bit like Brightons stadium....when nearing it you wouldnt know it was there......fantastic design......something OCC and OUFC could look at and learn from.........nearly all access thru park and ride which would get the council creaming ;)

The stars would certainly have to align to get someone like Brian Cox headlining an arena gig in Oxfordshire.
