“let’s check out how Oxford United are getting on” - no doubt you'll have already received a push notification telling you exactly how The U's are getting on.
Not sure if anyone as seen this , but worth a look!The days of Ceefax , nice to see us been talked about.
And , also always make friends with the chap , with the radio! ;)
And , checking out the final scores in TV shops down London Road , with your fish and chips before going back to the Brit!
These were the days before this The World Wide Web!

Of course the fish and chips would be from the Windsor ?
 
I forgot about the people around the telly shops in headington looking through the window getting the final scores.
 
I used to wait for the green 'un outside the Black Boy on Rose Hill at 6pm.
 
“I had to take the papers to Newbury and the big challenge was always to be there before the rival paper, the Swindon Pink, arrived.”

I do not recall , the Swindon Pink getting anywhere near Newbury!?:cool::cool::cool:
 
In Banbury we had sports Argus ( pink ) containing all midlands football .

In Newcastle we had a pink football paper and a green racing paper. Hit the street about 5.45 in North Shields.

The Argus was a great paper, used to hop off the train from an away game at New St, grab a paper, then try and get back on the same train, if missed it was to station bar, pint and a read whilst waiting for the next one

Remember the Green Un headline after beating Bristol City 4 nil at Ashton Gate. "Just Sensational, United". Would like more of the same...…..some chance!!

It’d be a bloody miracle if we won 4-0 at Bristol City now ?
