    If we are not careful we will be in the bottom 6 next season. Our form in the last third of the season was the worst in the league and we have retained most of the squad. Constable going means our top goalscorer has gone. Whing and Clarke with operations impacting early season. Waddock needs to bring in some good players next month otherwise come early season the crowds will be about 4,000 and the fans will be unhappy. Maybe the Chairman just wants to break even on the finances side and if so we will not be competing to get promoted.
    I think we look certs for bottom 4. Let's wait and see though. England win the World Cup and then Oxford win League 2. Let's hope this is FACT!"

Former Oxford United strikers reunited at Eastleigh

Oxford Mail: Former U’s striker Jack Midson (left) has linked up with old Oxford teammate James Constable at Skrill South champions Eastleigh Former U’s striker Jack Midson (left) has linked up with old Oxford teammate James Constable at Skrill South champions Eastleigh

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.”
