Hello to all,

Firstly congratulations on your recent escape from relegation, due to Napa and Kelleher being loaned to you Iíve kept an eye on your results and like us youíve managed an impressive turn in form.

Anyway, Kelleher. Our manager recently said we wonít be renewing his contract when it expires this summer. Since heís yet to make his competitive debut for Oxford, I was wondering what your opinions on him were, would you like to sign him etc.?

Grateful for any feedback, thanks.

That is good news for us - I was afraid he would go back to Oxford. He has been excellent for us since Sol Campbell took over, a real warrior at the heart of the defence. Wins everything in the air and has gained in confidence and likes to bring the ball out of defence.

Glad to see Oxford end the season well. It looked a bit iffy for you at one point.

Definitely on my retain list. Very composed and reliable. Has probably learnt a lot from Sol and Nathan Cameron.

Defending wise not too bad, sometimes his clearerances can go anywhere though. As for his ball playing ability we'll on that front he's absolutely garbage, hoof hoof hoof and looks terrible with it at his feet.

Probably a good squad player for league 2/national league, but if macc Town want too progress as a club we need 2 look elsewhere.

He has a nice car though

I agree with the first two replies to your question.
He has been an absolute rock at the heart of our defence.
I was afraid Oxford world want him back - so if we can afford him he would be my first signing .
( good luck next season . )

If you had asked me that question a month or two back I would have said you can have him back, but in fairness he has improved tremendously and would hopefully be on our list of signed players for next season

Thought he was awful alongside Grimes last year, but has improved playing with better defenders in Cameron & Jules under Sol's guidance. His distribution is poor, but in fairness he's now a much better defender than 9 months ago.

Donít think he was ever as bad as some would have you believe, but he has certainly improved as the seasonís gone on. Hope he signs for next season[^]

Wholehearted defender. Massively improved recently. Little gets past him in the air. No accident that he has been voted MOM 3 or 4 times this season.

He had one or two moments to forget during the course of the season, and yes he could work on his distribution too.

On the other hand heís brave, committed, and isnít afraid to charge forward when the opportunity allows.

Iíd be more than happy to see him in a Macc shirt next year [^]

Much improved and don't agree he is rubbish on there are CBS much worse with the ball in L2. Hope that small guy with the beard in the SLE is reading this after he was lambasting him early season when he was playing with Grimes and Taylor.

I thought he was awful early in the seas but alongside Cameron he has become worthy of a starting place. He is much improved, more confident etc. However, I agree his distribution is often nightmarish, cannot see a run, cannot read the game etc. He can clear the ball well but he is a hoofer rather than a hoofer to space. If he looked up a bit more and considered how play breaks out from the back he would be a very good defender.

He was poor at the start of the season when playing next to Grimes or Lowe. However, in a three next to Cameron and Jules, he's been outstanding.

He improved immensely throughout the season. And don't forget it was his run and pass to Reece Cole on Saturday which resulted in Durrell's equaliser. Would sign him up in a flash.

Thanks for all the responses, sounds like we might be making a mistake letting him go but guess time will tell. All the best for next season + good luck signing him
