Oxford United happy to bide time

Banbury Cake: Oxford United chairman Kelvin Thomas Oxford United chairman Kelvin Thomas

Kelvin Thomas does not expect any imminent new faces at the Kassam Stadium.

Sean Rigg is the only player to sign for Oxford United so far this summer, a situation that the U’s chairman does not forsee changing in the short term.

And that, Thomas believes, can only be a good thing.

“It has definitely been different from the last few seasons,” he said of the lack of transfer activity.

“It’s not going to be as exciting and dynamic as in the past, but that’s because we have got a decent squad here.

“Everyone loves a signing and it does get people excited, but we have got time.”

He added: “We have been linked with every forward going, but the reality is that with Tyrone Marsh, we have seven forwards in our squad, so unless somebody goes out, we have got our numbers up front.

“I don’t think it will be a very hectic summer.

“If you look at the released list, there are a lot of players out there.

“And if you look at last season, Peter Leven came in a day before we went to America, Liam Davis came in late and they were two successful signings, so there’s no great rush.”

Thomas says that the lack of new faces mean that it will be a steadier build-up to next season, but knows that supporters – like the club – will be raring to go as the new campaign gets closer.

The draw for the Capital One Cup – formerly the Carling Cup – takes place on Thursday, with the npower League Two fixtures released on Monday, June 18.

“Season ticket numbers are good, so I think fans are excited about it all,” he said.

“We have got the Open Day, the new kit going on sale and obviously an exciting pre- season, against very good sides in West Ham and Cardiff, who are bringing their first teams here.”

The club are spinning things again. Why not just come out and confirm we haven't got the budget to bring in the players we need to strengthen the side?

The squad isn't decent it failed in spectacular fashion last season. It needs serious strengthening in midfield and for the club to go out and do the right thing, bring in a striker who can score some goals.

I really couldn't care less Kelvin about Pre-Season games - the ones priced at Over The Top sums, £16 to watch Cardiff and WHU and then cash in on another new shirt.

You keep taking our money and not strengthening the squad suitably. The Chairman and Owner are beginning to be found out.

Is Oxford United a serious football club? It feels more like a hobby and pastime for owner Lenegan and his chairman.

My advice to the chairman is this... get up out of your chair and start making things happen at this club. I'm tired of your smug complacency. Oxford fans pay good money to support the club, and that support is superb.

FANS PAY GOOD MONEY and WE NEED NEW PLAYERS. It doesn't take a genius to work it out. Use the some of the money that came through the turnstiles last season to get the type of playing staff that will get us where we want to be.

The fans want success and a return to higher leagues. What do you want Kelvin Thomas USE. It's time to start running this club by honouring some of the requests of the finacers of it (the fans).

Pity you don't have something constructive to say about the actual story rather than using thinly disguised swear words to rant at another poster. You may not agree with 'yellowhoods' point of view but why do these comments have to be so nasty.

The fact is Oxford have limited funds and I note some of the comments on here saying 'spend, spend, spend'. Getting out of this division is not all money on players. It is more about man management, tactics, fitness, motivation and the keyword for me 'momentum' as demonstrated by Crewe's fantastic unbeaten run in and promotion...on a limited budget and squad.

I suspect the loss of about 250,000 on rubbish loan players and no play off place has led to Thomas and wilder being read the Riot Act by Linigan. I bet Linigan has said something like 'If you are going to spend £250,000 in the second half of the season I am deducting that money from your budget now'. Further, I suspect any increased budget will go to a new manager if we are not in the top places at christmas time.
As a season ticket holder I think I have been short changed - I am not asking for foolish spending but I do expect at least three more good additions to the squad.

Look at the successful Creepy Crawlies/Stevenages - that is one way out to buy the success but with a strategy and vision. The other way is to do a Crewe and invest in the Youth and bring them through not keep taking on journeymen loan signing mercenaries.

As they say if they are good enough they are old enough and for goodness sake lets try them out if we can't buy the success

Both ways need looking at - you snooze you lose!

Anyone running a football club at L2/BSP level which will run a loss of about £300k for the 2011/12 season and a debt to the owner which has increased from £2m to £5m isn't doing a great job.

There is no harm with having ambition and like all teams, armies, Companies, even flocks of Geese . . . you can only follow ambition by leading from the front! And just like flocks of geese or even Chairmen of companies when one gets warn out, tired or fails then he is replaced. You then have a better chance of getting to where you want to go.
Natural progression over 30 years has got us to the verge of the playoffs in the bottom tier. I, like many of us on here, will be 6 foot under before we get back to the likes of Aldridge, Houghton etc . . . fading memories as Stevenage and Crawley sweep past us!

agree with taffy duck that stability is all important and although we all want progress its no good harking back to our glory days and hoping that we can achieve them overnight, people seem to forget that before maxwell came in to rescue the club we were in danger of going out of business and it was only then that we started to excell as he provided the financial backup to jim smith. the problem is that it comes at a price as maxwell turned out to be a megalomaniac with his own agenda, i know its difficult but i would think a bit of patience is going to be necessary.

With no money invested on players , Ian Greaves turned the team round before Jim took over . Bottom of the table on Boxing Day - then lost just 3 matches in the second half of the season. In 81-82, United made a big profit on transfers. Wright and Cassells sold for £260k - Trevor and George Lawrence purchased for much much much less (about £100k) . Peanuts was spent over the next two seasons on a team which won what is now called League One - free transfer for Bobby Mac plus small fees for the likes of Biggins and Vinter. Rosie was about £70k - and Aldo came only in the last few weeks. Greaves and Smith were great managers . Maxwell 's first two and a half years saw the club's income from Wright and Cassells much outweigh the total spent on Trevor, Aldo, Rosie etc - and we won 'League one'!! . Come on let's not use our 'meagre' income as an excuse - what income had Shrewsbury, Cheltenham , Southend and Torquay last season? Did they end below impoverished United?

We need a manager who can inspire the players and produce a do or die team spirit.
Wilder alienates his best players who then want to go elsewhere. Some players are on good money while others are offered derisory pay deals.
Pay Chapman what he deserves. He is one of the best prospects in league 2 and could easily play at a higher level.

Why don't the players want to play for Wilder?

Ive been supporting oxford for 15 years, and wasnt around in the glory days. In fact all I have seen are relegations until promotion from BSP.

I understand that heritage is important, but we have to remember. OUFC is now a relatively young club after being stripped of almost everything by Kassam. Kassam almost acted as a reset button for the club, and since his departure we have progressed. Granted not promotion year on year, but still progression (especially considering injuries this season).

I would much rather knowing that there will be a club that I can take my grandchildren to go see, the same way I started going to see the u's, than some false success from spending above our means and going out of business, or getting relegated for going into administration and getting points deducted.

People seem to complain that we dont have much money, and complain that we arent buying players but also complain when the club tries to make money from shirts, ticket sales etc. the only other way forward would be to owe our owners huge amounts of money. Look how that ends up.

The reason we made a loss this year was because of the fees of loan players (im not gong to comment on the performance of these players) but the fact is most of these had to come in to cover a season of freak injuries. We haven't yet seen what this squad can truly do when fit. And I for one feel we have a much better squad than got promoted from bsp, and in fact the best squad we have had at the Kassam stadium for many many years.

I feel some improved additions to coaching staff to help improve winning mentality and a couple of players added to the squad could make a promotion winning team.

We are not harping back to the golden 83-86 era - we just want to be playing clubs with largely our size of support - few clubs in the Division above United get bigger gates than we do - and many , many in League One survive on much much smaller gates. We are not doing well - we are just doing better than we did in most of the years since we left the second tier in 1999. Many many clubs with half of our gate income were either in League One - or above us last season. Mr L - time to kick butt! Things don't look any better for 2012-13.

Dear reader.

Please discount any views published on this site by "yellow hoods". He / she is a troublemaking troll using my sign on for the Yellows OUFC fans' forum to make ignorant statements about the club many of us love.

I am the real YellowHoods. This fool does not represent my views, nor the views of the majority of OUFC supporters.

I, personally, am a strong supporter of Kelvin Thomas, recognise the steady hand he has brought to bear on the running of OUFC and would thank him for bringing us league football again.

I would also thank Chris Wilder for the progress he has overseen at the club since our dark days in the BSP. Things did, however, go horribly wrong towards the end of last season and I understand the frustrations of some fans towards his continuing management. Many of us will be looking for a good, promotion hunting start to next season.

That said, any sensible OUFC fan is not looking for us to spend beyond our means to gain promotion, as this would likely to damage the club in the longer term.

Finally, any OUFC regular knows Dave Cudd - by name and reputation at least - and has utmost respect for the good work she has been involved in.

Everyone is allowed an opinion but a majority seem on the whole to be negative and we haven't even kicked a ball yet!

As for Wilder ....well I dont fully agree with the tactics and SOME of his signings are a bit duff .....but he has also done some good things at the end of the day we just missed out on the play offs , we wouldve been happy with the play offs in the conference not so long back.

I dont however agree with KT's comment of playing a waiting game, The are alot of good players out there , does he believe waiting is a good thing? - we'll be left with the players that noone else wanted to pick from ...how can that be good? The thing that has worked so well for KT and CW is that some how they manage to convince some GOOD players to come to us.

We need to try and bring some youth through the system , I'd like to see this Marsh be more involved

Something does seem wrong in the background though CW does seem to struggle keeping the players head up.

I agree with the issue of keeping players heads up.. i think this has been an issue at the club for a long time now, even before wilder.

Unfortunately players do seem to get worse under us after time, and we seem to have been clutching defeats and draws from the jaws of victory for some time. Maybe its a coaching issue also?

I truely believe some signings in the coaching dept would benefit the club as much as signing additional players.

Let's get up and at them this coming season and fill the players and Manager with confidence to go for it in each and every game - winning is a habit and last season we were like rabbits stuck in headlights too often. Snatching a defeat or a draw from the jaws of success became a habit and it cost us dear.
The victories over Swindon proved we had the heart but the Manager needs to instill that feeling every game and then just maybe we will ge the promotion that we the fans deserve.

Snatching a defeat or a draw from the jaws of success became a habit and it cost us dear. The victories over Swindon proved we had the heart but the Manager needs to instill that feeling every game and then just maybe we will ge the promotion that we the fans deserve. OxRoxBox

I thought one of the strikers we were looking to get was Jon Shaw. But he signed for Luton. So are we waiting on Bristol Rovers to provide the money before we get and anyone else?
