Interview 92 - Oxford United

Oxford United FC, Oxford, Oxfordshire
Arch-Rivals: Swindon Town
Nickname: The U's
Founded: 1893

Oxford United

The quickfire interview was done with Joe, @oxbeav on Twitter.

Q1.Who do you tip for promotion from League 2?
Crawley Town, Bristol Rovers, Oxford United & Bradford

Q2. What expectations do you have of your club this year?
I expect them to improve on last year. I hope they'll get promoted and believe they'll at least be top 7 but I never like to set expectations too high.

Q3. Which match defined your team last season?
Probably Barnet away. 2 - 2. We just weren't good enough in the right places at the right times. Too many silly errors meant we lacked consistency.

Q4. Who do you tip for relegation from your league?
Macclesfield and Hereford. Macclesfield will go down sooner or later. (No offence)

Q5. Which player would you realistically like to sign?
Well Clayton Donaldson and Cody McDonald were heavily linked with us but I'm going to say Nicky Law - Rotherham. What a player.

Q6. Which of your players will have a point to prove this season?
Anthony Tonkin played superbly in 2 games last season. The rest of the time he was below average and he contributed to about 10 opposition goals.
James Constable, didn't reach his 20 goal target and with our newest signings he's going to have to score more regularly to guarantee a place. Even though he's captain.

Q7. Who are you most looking forward to playing?
S*****n T**n.

Q8. What team do you hate playing?
Southend did the double over us last year. As did Stockport (Yet we beat Chesterfield away and did the double over Vale)

Q9. What ground do you look forward to playing at most. (Away league games only!)
I didn't go away much last season, Bradford is pretty big.

Q10. Do you look out for any other teams in the league? If so, which one(s)?
Recently been talking to a few alright Barnet fans. So I reckon I've grown a soft spot for em'

Q11. Do you have any match superstitions?
Too many. The route from pub to ground, the song in the car, the time upon entry and whether I wear my colours or not.

Q12. Sum up Oxford United in three words.
Large, quirky and fantastic

Q13. Favourite Oxford player of all time?
Age limits me to players I've seen. Can I say 3? The BEAST. Dean Whitehead and Jake Wright

Q14. How will you fare in the cup competitions?
Wilder doesn't like to lose anything. We lost to West Ham in the 90th minute last year - Scott Parker scored (who else?). I fancy us to get to the prem teams. The buckets of paint trophy we'll probably lose in mind.

Q15. Name three things you could improve to do with Oxford. (Money excluded!)
Improve transport to the stadium, buy the ground and facilities and shoot Ka$$am.
