Great second half from Oxford, I was behind the goal and it was great to watch. Big up to the Hartlepool fans, sang their hearts out and showed great respect by joining the applause for John Shuker on the 77th minute, a classy gesture. Good luck for the rest of the season. COYY!
@3 Dave Clem. I agree about Hartlepool playing well, but teams with big fan bases deserve to go down to the National League because, despite the fan base, they have finished in the bottom two. It's that simple. If they finish at the top of the League, they go up. Fan base don't count; results and points do. As for Oxford, I would really like to see them promoted - a very good team (small fanbase?)
Saw OUFC vs Gillingham this season and it was like watching Brazil in the first half... fantastic stuff.... and what a brilliant goal from Shandon Baptiste! Come on you yellows 🐂
Remind me, who did Swindon play in the FA Cup today?! 🤣😂
Don't think we deserved to lose 4-1, but congratulations to Oxford. Hope they get a 'cracking' tie in the next round.
we thought we only had to turn up today....wrong...Hartlepool deserved their half-time lead. Better in the 2nd half thankfully. Baptiste will improve and play in the Prem for sure.
Well played Hartlepool .. this auto relegation to non league needs looking at. Teams with large fan bases are an asset to the football league and those without are not.Just saying
Well played hartlepool.. fine account of yourselves, heads held high from oufc..
Happy to go through. By many accounts, 4-1 flattered Oxford but just content to be in the hat. Shandon Baptiste’s goal is a belter and he’ll be playing in the top flight before long. Safe journey home to the Hartlepool fans. Loud and over 700 in number today. Let’s hope we can meet again soon.
