A few from the 00/01 season

Omer Riza - Was rumoured to be signing for us during 00/01 season. Young prospect from West Ham. Ended up with Stephen McPhee from Coventry

Daniel Amokachi - High calibre player in his day wiith Everton. Was a free agent at the time

Marco Negri - Former Rangers goal machine was rumoured to have been a loan target from whatever Italian side he was playing with at the time

Ronaldinho - We all know this one. I actually spoke to Tom hendrie about this and it was very close. 

Bebeto - He was offered to us by his agent. I think he must have been 36/37 or so at the time. Hendrie dismissed it as he didnt think he would be much of a player at that time if he was being. offered to us lol.

McPhee signed before Riza. Pretty sure McPhee was who we ended up with after the Kitson/Ronaldinho chase.

In each of the previous seasons since the groups returned, the Premiership side has been at home to the championship side.

Another of our signing confirmations coming by end of the week - possibly even tomorrow as the scarf picture was apparently taken today.

Assume it’s one of the names that’s been widely reported?

If it goes by previous we will be home to 2nd and 4th seeds, so we should be away to Cowden and Airdrie. Been a while since we played at the Excelscior, some good Saints memories there.

Still the record attendance at that stadium.

Yep can't ask for much more from a signing for a club like us. Plenty of experience at this level and equivalent down south, and he's a full international. 

At 34 he's pretty young for a keeper, he should have at least five years left in him. Hopefully he's here for the long haul.

Good bit of business from the club. Good keeper at this level and bags of experience. Would like to know if Urminsky is the real deal and could he be a star for us eventually

Urminsky seems to have been highly rated by the Stenhousemuir fans during his loan spell last season. Obviously he wouldn't have faced Premiership standard opponents there but he's unlikely to be a dud. A bit frustrating for him all the same that he hasn't had much first team opportunities with us so far.

It was about 10 years later after we won the league in 2000. They were the dirtiest c***s I've ever seen us play against. It was Peter Fear who was the worst offender and got sent off for them that day.

I knew there was a reason I really don’t want Oxford to even win a corner.
