    Seems like Michael Appleton is off to be Leicester's assistant manager.

    First casualty of this elite league?

    And he's gone. Been brilliant fun supporting the teams he put out for Oxford and hope he's a success.

    I'd fully understand why other L1 fans would prefer Clarke or Rosler or someone but wouldn't have traded him for any other manager at this level.

    No idea what we do from here.

    Oh man. Does this mean we going to have to work for our annual 6 points next season? :)

    Might offset the six we lost when Swindon went down!

    Strange to see anyone leave being a number 2 to pursue a management career, to do well and build a decent reputation, just to go back into being a number 2. I'm guessing money has talked with that one, poor timing for Oxford.

    Might be his best shot at the Premiership though. Managers don't last long there so Shakespeare gets sacked, Appleton steps in as caretaker and who knows what then.
