Chris Wilder: Won't be rushed into signings

The U's boss is yet to confirm any arrivals having bid farewell to a number of first-team players but he admits new faces will continue to arrive after the squad regroup for pre-season training on June 21.

When asked if the club would be able to get their transfer business done quickly, he told the Oxford Mail: "No, I don't think that's realistic for us to get it all done and dusted - we will wait and make sure.

"We might have to be patient and the supporters will have to be patient. At the start of pre-season I don't want it to be just Jake Wright, Michael Raynes, Andy Whing and Alfie Potter.

"I'm absolutely sure it won't, I think there will be a decent amount of players there, but it won't be up to 19.

"It will possibly be around the 16-mark, but if we have to be patient, hang on and keep our powder dry until something comes up, then we will do."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
