Monday 9 January 2023 Kassam Stadium USA “TV”: ESPN+ 3pm ET OK, ready for some Monday Night Football?? In a quaint 12,500 seater? Maybe we’ll get Martin Tyler at least. We better see a full B-team dammit, with at least 8-9 players rotated from Newcastle. One of those is rumored to be ESR... bring that on! While crossing fingers and toes. If we lose so be it! We last played them 20 years ago this week in the same 3R. Hopefully a good omen, since we won that day 2-0, with GOD scoring his 100th for the club, and then of course we went on to win the whole thing in May. Our XI that day included galacticos named Oleg, Gio, Frannie plus some stranger called Seb (Svard). Here’s the only old clip I found, and it’s a funky, Oxford-centric report, but still nice to reflect on those times of supremacy. Another omen perhaps?
