    What is the problem with the OM? They obviously have a fixation with former OU players instead of backing our club and promoting better relations between the club and the community, I admit the club should also do more but all week we have had them twittering on about players who decided they no longer want to be part of OU. They made the decision to go, now the Paper and fans alike should let them go, the past is just that, something that's gone. Time to move on!
    Really!

    What do you want them to report on...... nothing?

    You think that Beano deserves no attention on the other story and now moan about reporting on some current Oxford related stories.

    The club are not publishing anything, so I like most fans would rather read something than nothing. It is simple, if you do not like then do not read it.

    Incidentally I think it is disgraceful that the club have not made an official statement on Beano. Most clubs make statements on players that have made a quarter of the contribution JC has given OUFC.

    OM should be brave and bring this to light.
    The point is that the Chairman, in his wisdom, has decided not to offer Constable what he was on last season and reading Constables comments the other day he obviously thought he should have been offered more. It's a sad state of affairs that our club cannot afford to make players similar offers to clubs in the Conference but articles like this just ridicule the club, they don't help. If the OM want to really support the club and more importantly (in my opinion) the fans then they should be promoting the club not making it look even sillier, the clubs already doing a pretty good job of that and doesn't need help to do something they have become adept at,"

Former Oxford United strikers reunited at Eastleigh

Former Oxford United strikers reunited at Eastleigh

First published in Sport

Jack Midson will be reunited with former Oxford United strike partner James Constable next season after signing for Eastleigh.

The 30-year-old, who was released by AFC Wimbledon earlier this month, signed two days after Constable made the switch to the Skrill South champions.

It brings the pair together for a second time, after they combined to good effect in the United squad which won promotion back to the Football League via the play-offs in 2010.

The Hampshire club are managed by former U’s midfielder Richard Hill, who felt a second big signing in succession showed they meant business next season.

He said: “Like James Constable, Jack is an extremely ambitious lad and, to come and play in the Conference, he needed to be convinced that we’re not going into this league just to tread water.”
