I'm hearing they didn't sell out.....how? Surely there is enough arsenal fans in Oxford to sell that three sided wank pit out?

It did sell out - you had to have stubs from the previous round and a few went on general sale but were gone quick. The divide between the two sets of fans takes out about 500 seats and I don't know if Arsenal sold out.

To be fair when we played Citeh, the capacity was reduced by around 300 because of cameras etc. I can't believe they need such a massive gap at Pox to divide the fans.

you could argue that they were over capacity yet again. as always with their cup matches there were blokes standing on the back of vehicles looking over the wooden fence. does that count towards attendance?

Didn't Pox get arsenal in the third round draw after we lost at our first game at the 3 sided kasssimo

We were a league above them at the time, can't have been long after the last game at manor turbo double.

All it shows is that we need to get out of  L2 at all costs. It's a spiral of stagnation.

They lares playing  the typical underdog way

All elbows and aggression....

Arsenal have been in no danger and just waited fir the opportunities

Are you based in Cowley, Oxford?  Lived in Oxford myself during the Hoddle period...and the period soon after when Joey Beauchamp (RIP) signed for us.  Interesting times.

Yep. An awful game settled by a Jefferson Louis goal that I'm not even sure he touched from a throw-in. Willy Carson on the tele beforehand saying that he wanted a draw.

They didn't get their McKirdy moment, that's the key for me.

It's known as the Ford Transit stand. Don't let anyone tell you it's a three-sided ground.

Spoke to a work colleague who lives near the ground, he told me the traffic warden was having a field day with cars parked where they shouldn't.
