Jerry St Clair 19 years ago today,
Oxford 1 - 3 Reading. Well and truly exorcising the horror of our 1998 trip to the Manor.
Enjoy some Absolute Scenes on Cuckoo Lane. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpsFBw4ZdFM
With in-laws and wife coming from Headington (about half a mile from the ground) and (not wife) the family being long-term fans of Headington/Oxford going back to their non-league days any game v Oxford was important.
That Cuckoo Lane end was rocking that night with the stand actually moving.
I am still envious of Oxford reaching the top level before us despite only becoming a league club in the early 60s and for winning a Wembley Trophy.
Some consolation-I had a big bet on Oxford to win the League Cup as they had a decent side and I thought I might at least benefit financially from my misery and it was enough to pay for that year's summer holiday.
