I don’t understand why all the speculation and posts regarding us signing players. Have we learnt nothing? We (Oxford) have had a systematic process of recruitment for a couple of years now.

Early doors, KR publicly states what he wants / needs. In general we all agree.
We all wait expecting something to happen quickly.
KR comes out with statements that confuse the situation like.... we need a left back who can cover goalkeeper, tea boy and striker. We don’t need a defender now because I can move a striker to midfield, a midfielder to right back and a right back to goalkeeper and a our keeper can play centre half.
We all wait for something to happen whilst slobbering over potential names mainly involving players we’ve already had here. Or players well out of our league.
KR comes out with more confusion.
As we approach the end of the respective window the forum splits into those who are positive peters and those who think the world is about to end.
We end up getting about half of what we needed. Normally unknown.

Somehow KR manages to get our unlikely team of misfits to perform well and we have a reasonable season.

Tea boy and striker... that was literally Jamie Mackie

Although you’ve forgotten the rather good player we all like the look of, who agrees to come, gets KR licking his lips and proclaiming his talent, who then signs for one of our rivals three hours before the deadline.
