    Just the same as any signing we make, too many on here are quick to condemn. We are not an attractive prospect so we aren't going to get the cream of the crop. By all accounts Michael Collins looked quite tidy last evening. The team will always get my support, that's football. If you want instant success get up the M40 to a club owned by a billionaire.
    I didn't like it when Jim Rosenthal left and the board was just the Lenagan's. Don't know a lot of the gentlemen who have joined but having more input is surely a good thing. When Kelvin Thomas started as chairman he worked with Kassam rather than against. So I do agree, we could benefit from this if this is done right.
    When did Jim Smith leave the board? It seemed to happen without anybody hearing a whisper...."

OXFORD United have announced two new faces will join the club's board.

Mike O'Leary and Frank Waterhouse both become non-executive directors, the latter replacing Paul Wright as chief financial officer.

O'Leary spent two years as chief executive at West Bromwich Albion and has more than 30 years of board experience.

Waterhouse, a chartered accountant, has spent a similar length of time working in finance.

The changes mean United's board now comprises Darryl Eales (chairman), Mark Aston (chief executive) and directors Ian Lenagan, Mike O’Leary and Frank Waterhouse.
