  • "I think the biggest issues fans have is that they are not managing their own expectations very well. We all want the club to do well but unfortunately we have no money so have to work within a very tight budget. Every player who we sign is slated as being "average" or "useless" before a ball has been kicked and the management and chairman accused of having no ambition. Fact is chaps, we ARE average, we have not been good enough or financially strong enough to go up for the past few years! It is frustrating that we only seem to be able to make a real crack at promotion every 4 or 5 years. My own feeling is that our improvement has to be organic -. we cant buy it! - the youth squad will need to develop and some stars evolve who become regulars and who want to stay at OUFC (and we dont need to sell) - if we can keep the debt spiral in check then as they improve we will get better and eventually we will go up. We are never going to suddenly have millions to spend on a squad so unless we can unearth some gems (take some risks with none league or "reject" signings) we wont have the budget even if we go up to support strengthening a team to keep us in L1! I for one dont want to see us sneak up and then lose 5-0 every week! Id rather see us start to play good attacking football in L2. Before we do that, we have no chance in L1. The club needs to get its finances in shape - if it doesnt happen we will be in administration - for our part we can help by showing our true colours and supporting the club through thick and thin - buying those season tickets - screaming at players and slagging them off on forums or here or even worse during the game, really doenst help anyone and isnt going to get the best out of them - eventually players wont want to even come to us. If you cant handle the truth and supporting our club frustrates you so much that you just want to spit hate, I would suggest you burn your shirt and go up to Chelsea or Manchester and support them instead. Our club doesnt need negheads - but it does need some proper supporters."

Rotherham striker Danny Hylton has signed for Oxford United and declared: I can't want to start.

United unveiled what is manager Gary Waddock's first signing this morning.

Hylton spent time on loan at AFC Wimbledon and Bury FC last season and after failing to establish himself in Steve Evans’s first-team plans was allowed the opportunity to seek a move elsewhere.

He said: "It has been a frustrating time at Rotherham and I am really pleased to join Oxford on a permanent basis. I have played against them a number of times and know it’s an ambitious club with good players and I am really looking forward to it.

“I enjoyed working with Gary Waddock at Aldershot and I played some of the best football of my career under him. His sides work hard for each other and play good football and I can’t wait to be part of that next season.”

Waddock said: “Danny has a great attitude and wants to show what he can do again.  He maybe has a point to prove and is hungry to do well here.

“He scores his fair share of goals but he also links things together and brings others into play. He is versatile, can play all across the front line, has pace and I believe he will do well for us.”
