'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wycombe: The Opposition View

Following yesterday's 1-1 draw between Wycombe Wanderers and Exeter City, here are some views from the Grecians' manager Paul Tisdale, their goalscorer Manny Panther and a few of their fans.


Tisdale told the Exeter Express & Echo: 'It was a tremendous performance and a hard-earned point. I wasn't happy with the first 10 minutes but we grew into the game and we played well.'

The Grecians' boss had nothing but praise for his team's travelling supporters, calling them tremendous and classing them as Exeter's 'Man of the match.'

Midfielder Panther had this to say: 'Although we are disappointed we didn't win the game, we are all pleased with a point.' He praised Wycombe as 'The best team in the league' and felt that Exeter's result yesterday showed that his side deserve to be where they are in the table.

Panther admitted that his side started slowly, saying: 'We were poor in the first 25 minutes. We showed them too much respect and couldn't get near them.'

Talking about his equalising goal, Panther admitted it was lucky and said: 'I'm not sure which part of my body it hit but I wasn't going to duck out of the way.'



The Exeter fans weren't quite as scathing about Wycombe as I had expected after yesterday's below par performance. Most of them seemed to go home happy with their point, their team's performance, their day out and especially the way they sang.

The following extracts are taken from 'exeweb'.

'So that is the team 9 points clear at the top. Be afraid boys, be very afraid ! They managed a seriously soft penalty and a couple of not too threatening headers in 90 minutes, we matched them in every department and should have converted enough of our chances to win the game.'


Grecian Max wrote:
'Superb performance from the lads in a game where we should have got all three points. Great result and to be honest I think we'll easily be top 3, and go for the championship. Why not, our team is better than most I've seen in this division.'

'An all round fantastic day out to round-off the Xmas break. Would have taken the point before the game but find myself disappointed we didn't get all three, given City's performance today against a team who were 9 points clear at the top of the league.'

'The penalty was ridiculous. Did the ref give it against Danny for running alongside their centre forward? I coughed at about the same time, maybe he awarded it against me. Make no mistake, Wycombe are a good side; it's just that we are equally as good if not slightly better.'

'A great day and delighted with a point up there but I have to say Wycombe didn't look like a side at the top of the league.'

'Just got back from the match. The atmosphere was fantastic, the City faithful sang their hearts out for the 90 mins. Weird goal by Panther but who cares, a deserved point was won.'

'As one of the two who started the chant off today, I can confirm that the official timing was from 15:21 until 15:46. 25 minutes was incredible.'


ECFC Steve wrote:
'Amazing support, a real credit to the club as well as the Football league, we are one of the best away supported clubs in England at the moment in terms of singing and numbers. Makes me so proud.'


Jason H wrote:
'My throat will be hurting until February, but it was worth it! I think if Norris (Guinness book of records) was alive today, he ought to have been at Adams Park to record the 'longest rendition of single chant' world record.'

Hmmm, Got to disagree with him there. I think last season's marathon version of 'Chairboys Barmy Army' at Shrewsbury was probably longer.



It's nice to make people happy at Christmas and this chap certainly was:

'Unreal day, really enjoyed it. A bit more expensive than some teams but value for money, the club were really welcoming, the stewards outstanding, the facilities excellent, and the ground was fantastic. Of the game, their penalty was a gift,we shaded the first half and were much the stronger side in the second half. The fans were awesome today, we were a 12th man in a game where we got very little from the officials who were inconsistent. Really enjoyed the day out, Wycombe a nice club, a nice away trip and a good day all round.'
