Oh how I pray for a cup meeting ASAP. The way the JPT is divided increases the possibility......PLE EEEEEEEEEEASE! What like the last time you played us in the cup? I think you were a division above us that time as well,what was the result? Oh yes you lost. In fact are you old enough to remember the scum beating Oxford ? 11 years and counting !
    You have to factor into that we have been divisions and leagues apart for years, so don't get too carried away... I'd lose the double every year if we got promotion like that season (24more points than you lot) .. hope you enjoy the 'hoof-ball' league again, and try not to trip up over the divots the 'egg chasers' leave on your pitch...
    Oooh the little fishy wishy girl is off again! Why don't you go home to your husband and cook him a nice dinner and stop spouting nonsense on here! If he knew what you were doing Fishy he wouldn't get you a new iron for xmas so you'd better stop before he finds out!
    Facts not nonsense - and I'll leave the name calling, and the trying, but falling flat on their face in their efforts to be mildly amusing, to those who want to make idiots of themselves - one step forward Eva... Cream for the sour grapes ??
    Here she goes again, the Fishy Wishy Girly Wirly getting her knickers in a twist! Go home to hubby and cook him a nice dinner, keep quiet and stay off our site! He wouldn't be impressed with you if he knew you were slacking off from the housework! Bye bye fishy wishy bye bye
    What a waste of time and effort there Eva ..."

Cox unfazed by Oxford United switch

Lee Cox is hoping to impress for Oxford United after switching from Swindon on loan

Lee Cox is hoping to impress for Oxford United after switching from Swindon on loan

First published in Oxford Utd

The “unreal atmosphere” in Oxford United ’s derby win against Swindon Town played a role in Lee Cox joining the club from their rivals on loan.

The 22-year-old midfielder signed a deal yesterday which will keep him with the U’s until January.

Cox came on as a substitute in United’ 2-0 win against Swindon in March and admitted it made such an impact that there was no hesitation in joining Chris Wilder ’s side.

He said: “I heard a few days ago Oxford were interested and I jumped at the chance to come here because I know what such a good side they are.

“I came on in the second half and witnessed the unreal atmosphere. The way Oxford played stuck in my mind and was a big part of why I came here because it was tremendous.

“I didn’t have one doubt coming here.”

The former Leicester City trainee, who can also play at right back, has no problems in switching between the two bitter rivals.

“It’s no issue to me, all I’m interested in is getting fit and getting games,” he said.

“I don’t care what the rivalry is, I’ll do my best for the team I’m playing for.”

Cox made his debut in United’s 1-1 draw with Didcot Town in a pre-season friendly last night.

Deane Smalley put the visitors in front on 77 minutes, but an error from goalkeeper Wayne Brown gifted an equaliser to Danilson Vincente late on.

U’s assistant manager Mickey Lewis praised the non-league side’s performance.

He said: “I thought Didcot did great and gave us a real good game.

“It was a good football match, we had to work hard against a really competitive team.

“Browny’s a very experienced goalkeeper and I’m sure he’ll be disappointed, but it’s not the end of the world – he’s big and brave enough to totally put it out of his mind.”
