Oxford Mail: Chris Wilder wants more FA Cup success to provide the cash to boost his squad Chris Wilder wants more FA Cup success to provide the cash to boost his squad

Plans to improve the Oxford United squad in January hinge on the result of tomorrow’s FA Cup replay against Accrington Stanley.

U’s boss Chris Wilder is keen to bolster his squad when the transfer window re-opens, but the scope for change is likely to rest on the outcome of the second-round replay at the Kassam Stadium.

At stake is £27,000 in prize-money, plus a third-round tie at home to Sheffield United next month.

Win and United may have room to significantly strengthen for the second half of the campaign, lose and they could be hamstrung.

Wilder admitted it made the game hugely important.

He said: “It is for me because I want to look at the squad.

"Obviously we have had a couple of loan signings (Lee Cox and Jake Forster-Caskey) and we have decisions to make on them, whether we extend them into the new year, and we’ll look around at what else is available.

“A lot of it is governed by finances and I’d like to be in a position that if we do progress in the FA Cup it would give us a little bit more to go and get a bit more quality.

"I have to make sure that recruitment is right in January and Wednesday does play a big part towards that.”

U’s chairman Ian Lenagan had said before Johnny Mullins’s loan was recalled last month the wage budget was close to the League Two salary cap.

Wilder is mindful of the restrictions, but believes getting through to the FA Cup third round, along with an area semi-final tie at home to Southend in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, should free up some funds.

He said: “There’s always the salary cap and you have to abide by that, but I’d like to think the money we’ve earned through the FA Cup and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy will go towards squad strengthening.”

United are waiting to see if Simon Heslop will be available for the Accrington clash.

The midfielder received a red card for a tackle in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Aldershot, but after reviewing the footage Wilder appealed yesterday.

He said: “I’ve looked at it and it’s ridiculous in my eyes.

“Hessy went chasing the ball and made a genuine attempt to win it.

“The referee talked to me afterwards about him jumping in, but there was none of that, so hopefully the panel will see it and rescind it.”

I predict a crowd of 4.5 tomorrow night. Goodness knows why because it is going to cold enough to give even penguins frostbite. The club is not only asking for a arm and leg for admission but a torso too and at the moment the team is about as successful as a England penalty shootout. We Oxford supporters must be masochists because we will still go. I suppose the truth is sometimes love is just so blind. Now where are my longjohns ?

The 'tipping point' for Wilder going, according to the Chairman (who speaks once a season), will be reached when we can't reach the play offs. This gives him until March even though he is a dead man walking.

Why on earth should he expect to be given more money when the squad he has assembled over the last four years has got us to the position we are in now.

The one ray of hope we had was when he started playing with less fear and tried to win games. It was his last throw of the dice and it paid off. Didn't last long though did it ? Now we are back to Beano ploughing a loan furrow and trying to hang on to slender leads if we do manage to score.

If getting beat moves us forward then so be it.

Do we really want CW let loose with what little cash we may have in January to "strengthen " the squad? It is just a disaster waiting to happen. The best way to use any potential extra cash is for the chairman to thank CW for his services and give him a golden handshake.

However we need to beat Accrington first and on current form that is not going to happen.

I think you'll find 99% of Oxford fans would love to see us win tomorrow and progress in the FA Cup.

However, the best way to strengthen the squad though is not by giving what money we could potentially have to CW. It is to give it to a manager who knows what he is doing when putting his squad together. Not bringing in carthorses like Heslop and sicknotes like Pitman would be a good start. Having a basic knowledge of how to construct a balanced squad so that we don't have to play a left-back in midfield (which has happened on more than one occasion this season) would also be a marked improvement.

Heslop wouldn't make the squad of my virtual pub team - what Wilder sees in him is way beyond me. Then again the majority of Wilder's signings have been poor or at least poor under Wilder's management. I wouldn't trust Wilder with money for new signings his record is poor.

If we sacrifice the chance of league one football for revenue raising cup runs I'd begrudgingly take that for one more season as long as Wilder has gone. Sadly I don't have a great deal of faith in Lenagan either so I've no idea where we'll be next season.

I think the players have become stale and it is almost inevitable when you hear the same every week from the management team.

It amazing what a change will do, Bournemouth fans, who are a lot less forgiving, protested in force less than three months ago. Manager sacked, new manager in and unbeaten in twelve since with the same players. Look at Crewe last year - same players re motivated with fresh ideas.

Too late to achieve much this year but some good points made about using any fa cup winnings to pay for redundancies.

If this was true, given the number of managers got through prior to Wilder... Oxford should be in the Premiership - and Arsenal and Manchester United in the Conference.

Top quality managers will end up managing top quality teams so please don't try to compare Wilder with Ferguson or Wenger. Wilder has tried to get away at least once already this year without success.

Just because we have employed rubbish in the past doesn't mean it will happen every time. Even wilder had a bit of an effect when he started.

It is absolutely beyond me how this guy still has supporters, I just don't get it. What does it take for them to see we are 18th in the league

Just who would all the Wilder haters want as manager? We have tried all the ex players, remember Shotton, Wright,Ford , Patterson, even the return of sir Jim didnt do it for us. Just left us with poor memories of once upon a time heroes . Face the facts were broke, no one wants to buy us, the chairmans money isnt coming from a bottomless pit.

First of all we have to beat A stanley and Southend before we get any money and the way we are playing that wont be easy. Secondary who can we buy in january anyway. Nobody will want to sell their best players and who would want to come to a team in the bottom eight of the basement division ? The only players we will get is bench warmers not good enough to get in their own teams or loanees like Bontang. Trust me. Our next manager is going to need every single penny if he has any chance of turning Oxford united around.

Never understand the logic of pro wilder fans wanting to keep him at the helm because they can't think of a replacement! it's as if last years missing out on the play offs never happened. We are 7 pts from relegation and playing poorly. Scraping odd wins and losing too many games. The manager is as its been said stale and the players have caught his mediocrity.

Wilder is offering absolutely nothing to change his own disaster. Cup wins might help top up the empty account but it won't get us promoted.

Wilder should not be allocated funds for new players his record is rubbish. Will the advocates for Wilder support him all the way back to the conference? It's the blind faith of Patto,Atkins etc coming back. 4 years of Wilder is enough.

Can't afford to sack him is their classic answer. A good manager would put 2500 on the gates next season - if not this. He has had plenty of time - scraping through in 3rd place in the Conference was better than it might have been - but no big deal . For far far far too long we have settled for mediocrity

Look at the many small clubs who are doing much much much better than United - for every Chester (been smaller than us since 62) , Mansfield, Wrexham (small town clubs) or bigger clubs like Luton or the Gas there are so many poorly resourced clubs ahead of us in League Two - and in League one , too.

I just want Mr Wilder to go before he humiliates us any further.

If ever a man has been shown up to be well and truly out of his depth now, it is him.

We need a manager who is suitably qualified and as well as talking the talk, cant actually walk the walk.

Our club needs better and Mr Lenagan should act now before he loses more and more supporters.

Compared with each other they means little - they all played against different oppo - and had different players. Turner's figures are amazing - his first three seasons saw us 2nd then 1st then 1st . His next six saw us rise to what is now called the Championship. His last season saw us struggle in our first season in the Championship. Yep he remains a legend - that kind of statistic can lie!! What mark do you give wilder out of ten since we scraped up in 3rd place?

Totally agree with both of you. If you want BYT to respond don't use long words in your post though. Didn't Huw Milliates play for Cardiff?
