  • "The POOR man wanted a supermodel girlfriend but didnt seem to understand hat until his finances were in shape it was just pipe dreams. In his search for perfection he soon became frustrated with every girl he met and would spend his days screaming loudly at her that she was ugly and uninspiring. Life was just one big depressing frustration for him until he awoke one morning to smell the coffee - he finally realised that however much he wanted his girlfriend to be the most beautiful, it just wasnt going to happen - he would never be as rich and glamorous as some of his peers. ....so he decided to stop the ranting and try and be more supportive and encouraging of what he had, in the hope that she might become more beautiful. Although deep down he knew that his partners were only average, they tried hard and he occasionally he got a glimpse of the beauty he once demanded. As things improved financially the girls he dated started to become prettier - he remembered those dark places he had been in the past and the delusion he had once felt, and rejoiced that he had finally chosen to wake up and smell the coffee...."

Update: Danny Hylton is Waddock's first signing for Oxford United

Oxford Mail: Danny Hylton Danny Hylton

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.”
