Fully agree, as well as getting players returning from injury the chance to get game time, and play along side the youngsters. Exactly what the efl are trying to do with the checkatrade trophy, but fixing something that wasn’t broken and always worked perfectly well.
As for the take over it either says, de is fully back on board and is putting back in place areas the club has been lacking in recent months.
It’s not him bringing in these staff
Hard to say could be either
Dan Harris spoke well at the recent Oxvox members meeting ..... hope he walks it like he talks itHave to say the academy side of things sounds impressive and it certainly seems to be in good hands under Dan Harris. He continues to look a great appointment.
Long may it all continue
I hope it all points a positive future for OUFC .... in the meantime the first team squad need to start delivering on the pitchI got a feeling he will, my immediate reaction to that meeting was both guy were very impressive, but I hoped they are giving the tools and finance needed to bring in the ideas they have. So far so good, more staff, more scouts, and a proper solution to the training ground were what’s needed, and we now have a new head of academy and 2 new coaches less than 3 weeks in
Swan about doing not a lot....apart from introducing new schemes to fleece the taken for granted fan base... that's all it appears the board members seem to me to be doing. ....So yep, @Dave T, I'd like something along the lines of your suggested weekly from the boardroom thingy. Rad ox's Ask Ashton while it lasted was incitefulI’d quite like a similar weekly update along the lines of a view from the boardroom.
We have quite a few directors now and I don’t really have a clue what involvement they have or what they bring to the table.
Peter lee was brought in as a marketing expert, yet we rely on the generosity of fans to get a city centre shop, which is often not open. And have still a very basic range of merchandise that is mostly training wear.
Who’s the director responsible for looking at stadium options? Who brings marketing expertise ?
Do any of them do anything other than turn up for matches and make the odd press statement or sacking ?
