Wycombe: The Opposition View

Wycombe: The Opposition View

Following Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 win at Dagenham, here are some views from Daggers' manager John Still and a few of their fans.


'Sometimes games go for you and sometimes they don't.' said Still.

'That's just the way it goes. that's just football'

'When I first came to this club all we had to do was stay in the Conference.'

'We have absolutely over-achieved against bigger and better clubs than us and we'll keep over-achieving. Ok we've lost against Wycombe, but we'll win a lot more games this season.' Still told the BBC.

Still told his players that they had played very well and to carry on with what they're doing.

'We'll win games and we just have to keep going.' said the Daggers boss. 'This group of players have been absolutely fantastic and they couldn't have given any more.'




The Daggers fans were disappointed but most were quick to give credit to Wycombe's professional performance.

The following extracts are taken from 'The Football Forum', 'Football Forums' and 'Dagenham & Redbridge Unofficial Forum'.

'First half we had all the ball, just couldn't carve out a chance. Lost count the amount of times we put the ball in and no one attacked it. Very professional away performance from Wycombe. A lot of defending and nicked the goal. Fair play to them, I think they might have made the signing of the Jan transfer window for league 2 in Jon-Paul Pittman. Not sure how he will do at Wycombe's ground but when Wycombe play away and have to play on the counter, he is a huge weapon. Apart from him, their keeper was very solid in goal and made 2 tremendous saves. It was credit to us that we kept the rest of their team quiet. Matt Harrold didn't get a sniff all night and no one else stood out at all.'

'Was a good performance from us last night but I can best describe Wycombe as a brick wall. They did what they do well and we needed a little luck but got none.'

'The goal was always going to come in that fashion or from a set play so fair play to the lad, got his chance and took it. Very frustrating as the game was always going to be short on goals and we had so many chances to put the game to bed we only have ourselves to blame. The disallowed goal looked offside but Saunders should have broken the net with his header in the first place! Wycombe, to their credit, have a style of play that some would say is tough to watch but is very effective. If you're winning games, who gives a toss!'

'They took their chance and we didn't, that's why they are above us I guess. But lets not forget, they may well end up winning the League and we were better and outplayed them for much of the match.'

'Wycombe came for a 0-0 but got a 0-1 win. Very negative football with 8 behind the ball most of the match.'

'Great game of football last night - the best I have seen them play for ages. Gutted we didn't win but I think we should give some credit to Wycombe. It was a near perfect away performance from them. They soaked up the pressure, played for the draw, took their one chance when it came and then shut up shop. Sure we could have scored but I thought they played their game well.'

'Wycombe defended well, especially in the first half, so credit to them for that. Their keeper played particularly well.'



Redbridge Dagger wrote:
'Felt we were unlucky last night. We played very well especially in the first half but couldn't score. Not overly impressed by WWFC, they came for a draw but their goal was well taken from their only real chance - lesson for us - when you are on top, score or you may be punished.'



redboy68 wrote:
'Thought we deserved something from the game. Tidy goal but they were average at best. Overall, very positive though, if WW are top, it shows how close we are to being a promotion side.'

'Everyone got stuck in today. Wycombe had one chance, and took it. Their striker looked like their only dangerous player on the pitch today; Quick and skilful. I'm happy to take the linesman's verdict on the goal disallowed for offside, as I wasn't paying too much attention to that. We passed the ball around well, had plenty of half chances, and at points Wycombe had to defend desperately. That said, we didn't score, so can we really say that we deserved a win, given that we dominated proceedings?'




All fairly reasonable comments really, although there were mixed messages from DaggerGoat.



DaggerGoat wrote:
'Good result for Wycombe. We were good enough for a point at least (AGAIN) but I will say one thing, I feel awfully sorry for them having Peter Taylor as manager, as usual he has brought boring football with him. Oh, and that ginger muppet they have up front needs a kicking! But I would like to see them go up if I'm honest, because I really have nothing against Wycombe.'
