First published in Sport Herald Series: Photograph of the Author by , Sports Editor. Call me on 01865 425451

Oxford United have moved quickly to replace Sean McGinty with the signing of Luke O'Brien.

The former Bradford left back, who played almost 150 games for the Bantams, replaces McGinty, whose loan spell with the U's was terminated yesterday. 

O'Brien, who turned 24 this week and who was a free agent, is eligible to play at Burton Albion tomorrow, subject to clearance from the Football League and Football Association.

Nice to have him on board; 150 games at that age is pretty good going so he must have some pedigree. Welcome and help us push to League 1

Give the bloke a chance, he hasn't even played a match for Oxford and he's being called rubbish. He might turn out to be a really good signing. Hopefully Chris Wilder has spotted something about him that other managers have missed.

A price tag on a player is not always a guarantee that he will do well. This point was proven less than two weeks ago, when Swindon were showing off their new 'so-called' quality signings at the Kassam. Despite the price tags, and all the hype by Town fans on this site, their new signings did not impress at all.

At least they did better later in the week at home against bottom-of-the-table Leyton Orient.

Oh, hang on a moment....no, they didn't.

Yep.. the only positive comparison with that is we got the same amount of points as you lot, but only let in one goal at home and not four ....
