Hi all on the way home from Rotherham I started to think about our next game.
Well it should have been v Bury . For some reason I have an abiding memory of Bury, august 1967 at the Manor.Oxford 5 Bury 4.I think Oxford and Bury both went on to win promotion that season . Also for some reason I thought Bury had just been relegated and were at the time considered to be a Big team.
Its amazing how things have changed for Bury, and how sad for their fans.
Amongst the other things Oxford were losing 3. 2 at half time and a huge Bury centre forward shoving the Oxford goalie into the back of the net ( with the ball ) No Goal.
Anyone else got any Bury memories??
What do we think the score would have been tonight if we had played, who would have scored ??
Dean Whitehead absolutely beasting them when we won at Gigg Lane 4-0 in October 2003. He scored 2 (Steve Basham the other 2) and was just imperious.
Remember a midweek game when we stuffed them 5-1 at home a couple of seasons back. The little Scouse lad we had on loan (McAleny?) scored a hat-trick. They were awful.....
