So yesterday morning at 9am, Oxford United’s fixtures were revealed. At the end of last season, Oxford only managed to win 1 game out of 8 which meant that they missed out on a play-off berth by 6 points. We start the 2014/15 season at home to Burton Albion who have strengthened there squad with the acquisition of Lucas Akin who plied his trade with Stevenage in league 1 last season.
When we last met
From that team the only player who had an outstanding game was Fulham’s loanee Ryan Williams, what class that young Australian has. Next season we will unduly miss his flair and composure in front of goal. When looking through the highlights of the game how James Constable missed 2 golden opportunities to equalise and then possible score the winner I will never know.
Before the opening game of the season can Gary Waddock purchase a right midfielder with the same tricks as Ryan Williams can he fill the void left by James Constable and Sean Rigg. Can we get cover for the injured Ryan Clarke? Only time will tell.
COME ON YOU MIGHTY YELLOWS
