Luke O'Brien: Enjoying life at Oxford

The 24-year-old left-back, who has made seven appearances for the U's since signing in September, put pen to paper on a new deal on Wednesday.

With Liam Davis out for up to a month with a hamstring injury, the former Bradford and Exeter defender will continue to provide cover for the left side of the U's defence.

"I'm really pleased to have signed," O'Brien told the club's official website. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Oxford. The fans are excellent and we have worked very hard as a team to get into a good position in the league.

"I am looking forward to playing a part and trying to carry that on. We have a tough game at Fleetwood on Saturday so right now I am totally focussed on helping the team get another three points."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
