Callum O Dowda

It is nearly 3 weeks since the end of a very successful season for Oxford United. A few weeks ago Callum scored an exquisite goal to make every man, woman and child go mental. This youngster from Kidlington could become the first Oxfordian to be called up to the final 23 man squad for the Republic of Ireland team. Wow.. It must be an adrenaline rushing experience to maybe walk out in front of thousands of your own fans in Marseille or Lens. 

Many Oxford United fans are wanting Callum to be snubbed due to older heads with more experience. In my opinion why would Callum want to leave his boyhood club for pastures new? I remember Nick Powell who shone for Crewe Alexandra than transferred to Manchester United. In the era of Sir Alex Ferguson it never worked out. Nick wasn’t even on the bench.. Would the same happen to Callum? 

This summer is crucial for United. I’d love it if this shining skilful youngster stayed with us to try his luck at league 1. How is Liam Sercombe and Kemar Roofe going to perform? 

Michael Appleton is a great example of jumping ship before the correct time. He’ll have a few words with Callum and Kemar in my opinion. Whatever happens though it’s In Appleton We Trust. 

Come On You Yellows!
