Wycombe: The Opposition View

Wycombe: The Opposition View

Following yesterday's goalless draw between Wycombe Wanderers and Rotherham, here are some views from the Millers' Assistant Manager John Breckin and a few of their fans.



Breckin was refreshingly honest and admitted his side came to Adams Park looking for a draw.

'We went to Wycombe with a draw in mind and it was a great point away to one of the top teams in the league.' Breckin told reporters.

'We've got to survive. We've had 17 points deducted and games are piling up, so why should we alter our approach. It puts a bit of pressure on when the Sky TV cameras are watching, but why change?'




The Rotherham fans didn't think much of either side's performance.

'This league is rubbish. Brentford or Wycombe aren't that good. If they weren't so bad up front, they would have had a hatful, notwithstannding the blatant penalty they should've had.'

'They might be 2nd in the league but they'd only won 3 out of their last 9 games. They were there for the taking if we'd been more adventurous.'

'Any decent team would have ripped us apart today, Wycombe were poor, they won't go up.'

'Last night's game sucked the life out of me and I was embarrassed at times to be a Rotherham fan. I have got to the point where I am fed up of the negative tactics we play both home and away.'

'Wycombe were the better side but then again why shouldn't they have been. Top of the division, at home, and apart from the two shots which were well saved by Warrington they never really got going. They gave us too much respect. I still think they will get promoted. They're one of the better sides we've played.'

'A truly poor performance in a dire League. Although admittedly, the pitch was terrible and reflects the surface Rotherham will be playing on at Don Valley in the coming months (i.e. a Rugby ground).'

'Were Wycombe any good? - nope they weren't - the chances they created were due to our own ineptitude.'

'It was backs to the wall stuff mostly, but if we'd been a little more adventurous in certain situations, especially in the second half, we could quite easily have won it. Was it a penalty? definitely, but it wasn't given & we'll take that. All in all a great point against one of the better League Two sides!!'

'The basic ineptitude of our tactics and approach to the game were on a truly staggering level. Wycombe were there for the taking and if they do go up they'll come back down in double quick time. They were utterly dire and most teams in this **** poor league would have taken them no problem.'



I'm more inclined to agree with ledgero.

'Wycombe completely dominated the game, with our team running round like headless chickens. We lacked ideas and creativity, and through sheer luck, or the brilliance of Andy Warrington, and solidness of the central defence, we scraped a 0-0 draw.'
