Beauty and the Beast

Since last updating the blog there have been two matches.  Southend at Home, a horrific match that Oxford lost 2-0 and a fantastic game at Torquay which the U’s won 4-3.  During the course of these matches I have been celebrating New Year in the furthest reaches of Dorset with my family, another Oxford United supporter and his family.

We always knew that to be able to attend BOTH matches while away was going to be too much to ask of our families.  The choice we therefore had was which match to pick.  I would like to describe the choice we made in the style of 1980’s Saturday evening television:

Cilla: Alright chuck ask your final question

Me: Alright Cilla.  Girls, I’m a big football fan; if you were a football match what kind of match would you be and that’s to number 2

Girl Number 2: I would be a curvy roller coaster of a match featuring twists and turns that would leave you enthralled and spellbound throughout.  You’d love the fantastic climax at the end, and if you pick me you could end up with a hat trick of your own.

Me: Sounds nice Cilla. Right, same question to number 1.

Girl number 1: Face facts mate I’m a munter

Me: Hmmmm…..

Cilla: Right Chuck, you’ve heard what the girls have to say, are you going for the enthralling roller coaster or the munter

Me: It’s got to be number 1

Cilla: Well, let’s draw back the screen and see who you’ve picked…………..
