With time being short before the first games kickoff, this division will be a little briefer than the Championship and League One. As with the other divisions, not all signings have been named, so if you notice someone, or perhaps a club that I've "missed", chances are I haven't actually missed them, just made a decision to omit them.

[F]iroz Kassam was in a quandary in November 2004. Of all the managers he'd appointed since buying Oxford United for £1 five years previously, the latest, Graham Rix, was arguably the worst.

Despite quiet confidence in advance of this season's opening salvos, a tough sequence of fixtures added to the absence through injury of midfield playmaker Peter Leven will have left Oxford United fans cautious before the Capital One Cup visit to Bournemouth on August 14th. But their divisional betters from Dorset were seen off on penalties and the League campaign has started no less auspiciously – two of the favourites, Bristol Rovers and Southend have been vanquished and the performance in the latter game in particular was notable for its ease.
