    Not fair to judge GW on last season; too many issues with the club/squad prior to his arrival. I will judge GW this season.
    GW obviously sees ability in Hunt and Newey that didn't eventuate in the match performances in the last third of the season however they were a major part of the well performing defence for the first 30 games or so. They were out of form but that doesn't make them terrible players though. GW believes he can get them playing again so that's good enough for me. Again, I will keep an open mind and judge them next season. GW has put faith in these two players as he realises that if they don't perform then he isn't performing as a manager.
    Transfers....well there hasn't been any yet and nor would I expect any yet either. Again, we need to show patience and seeing as the last season is still a close memory its early days on that front. Again, give GW a fair crack at this job; he needs your support and all the other posters too.
    Interesting appraisal. Many may be pleased to know that unless things change very much for the better, I will be one of those who will p*** off . Loyalty? Yep many are more loyal than I have become - some of those may have nothing else to do on match days (but others have) . So many have abandoned going to matches since 2011-12. I will watch all home games until the end of September and will then either (A) get a season ticket(highly unlikely given the performance of IL's chosen one) or (B) decide not to bother attending any game next season or (C) take each game on its merits. I really hope that things improve enormously and that GW and IL take us back next season at least to the 4th placing we had when Chris left (he would not have taken us up) . Some mention loyalty - we have suffered almost non stop low standard football for about 15 years - high time we made the dizzy heights of the third tier. Come on Gary - I want to proved wrong"

TOM Newey has put pen to paper on a new contract which will keep the defender at Oxford United next season.

The 31-year-old was out of contract this summer, but was offered terms earlier this month.

After considering his options, the left back has agreed to the new 12-month deal.

Newey signed last summer after being released by Scunthorpe United, making 47 appearances as the U's finished eighth in Sky Bet League Two.
