Oxford United are on the hunt for a new manager after Michael Appleton departed to Leicester City, where he's become an assistant to Craig Shakespeare.
Chris Powell, Steve McClaren, Frank Lampard, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Andrew Whing are some of the early names in the frame to replace Appleton in the Next Oxford Manager Market.
A team draped in history, Oxford United have tasted literally all parts of English football having taken part in the top division as well as the non league scene and they will certainly be looking to venture back to the glory days of the 1980s.
Between 1984 and 1986, Oxford gained back-to-back promotions to the First Division and in 1986 managed to win the Milk Cup that would have seen them entered into Europe. However, they were unable to take their place in the UEFA Cup as English teams had been banned following the Heysel disaster.
Relegated from the top flight in 1988 they plummeted dramatically through the leagues and eventually suffered relegation to the Conference in 2006 and it would be a dire time for the U's.
It would be four years until they made it back into the Football League as a 3-1 win over York City in the 2010 Conference Play-Off final saw them promoted to League Two, which has been followed by promotion to League One under Appleton in 2016.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Oxford United collect wins versus Shrewsbury Town, Millwall, Port Vale and Bury while suffering adverse results at Bradford City, Fleetwood Town, Coventry City and Bolton Wanderers. Draws against Walsall and Northampton Town has seen them show mid-table form at best.
