Next day I walked past the wooden hoardings outside what was to become the Arthur, to see a proto-fatwa 'Death to Burtenshaw' (the ref) painted up in huge black letters. It's how we all felt for days afterwards.
Wasn't the Atkinson brothers playing for Oxford (Ron and another one) in that game? I think they were both dirty/hard men players and were a left over from when Oxford were a non-league team and advancing up through the leagues.
