Wycombe: The Opposition View

Wycombe: The Opposition View

Following yesterday's 1-0 defeat to Exeter City, here are some views from Grecians' manager Paul Tisdale and a few of their fans.


Tisdale told the BBC: 'We were fabulous. We were playing against a very good side who defended extremely well. We peppered their goal in the second half but only came away with one goal so it just shows you how well they defended.'

'I'm very proud of the way the players played and I think we squeezed every bit of energy and quality out of every player we had today.'

He thought it was a 'great day for Exeter City' and praised the crowd which he described as 'fantastic, not just in number but in spirit.'

Having made crucial tactical changes at half-time, Tisdale said: 'It's not just about the starting eleven, it's about the finishing eleven and the introduction of Logan and McAllister at half-time changed the course of the afternoon and we capitalized.'

'We could have come away with two or three in the second half and their keeper was possibly the man of the match today.'

The Exeter boss summed-up his approach to the game as follows: 'It was a day for being bold and I think we were bold in abundance this afternoon.'



The Exeter fans were on cloud nine after their side's crucial victory in front of an almost capacity home crowd.

The following extracts are taken from 'exeweb' and BBC606.

'Fantastic Game. Wycombe were the better team in the first-half but the key was Tisdale switching formation after the break. Wycombe struggled to cope with the forward threat and there was a five minute spell where we hit the bar twice and saw their keeper pull off two excellent saves.'

'Think Tis got it spot on today tactically. We were definitely only going half-pace in the first half, conserving our energy for an onslaught second-half. Slightly risky, but it worked a treat, you could see the Wycombe players just didn't know what had hit them, their half-time team talk would have gone right out the window.'

'Fantastic performance - controlled the first half without doing too much damage and blew them away in the second. Play like this in our last three games and we'll be up no problem.'



Benito wrote:
'I was scared when they bought that GIANT on but it did smack of Taylor running out of ideas.'



Macca wrote:
'What a game, what a turnout, and what a superb tactical change by Tiz at half-time. It totally bamboozled Wycombe, they hadn't planned for it at all. We were in their faces and finally started to compete in the air up top.'



A slacker wrote:
'Fantastic experience today. There were a lot of nerves around but Tis set them up beautifully at half-time to totally dominate the second half. There was a superb attitude running through the team and they were all up for it. The atmosphere was cracking and it was a really absorbing contest which we thoroughly deserved to win.'



Sturtz wrote:
'We let them boss the game in the early stages but as the half wore on we began to slowly push them back. I felt losing Zebroski was a big blow for them. Second half we changed our team and could have scored five. Hit the woodwork twice and forced a couple of very good saves from their keeper. We never sat back, but we can thank Paul Jones for a magnificent save towards the end.'



Grecian Max wrote:
'Deserved win today. We really put them to the sword in the second half. Wycombe are not really that good and having seen them at their place too, we'll finish above them.'



joshyd123 wrote:
'The effort, passion, pride and desire throughout the 90 odd minutes was superb, always fighting for the ball, always looking for the defence splitting pass, always working their socks off. Let's carry this on and take another giant step towards the automatics!'



Some thought Akinde's early shot should have counted....

LOG wrote:
'A big pat on the back goes to the linesman whose eyesight failed him at just the right moment as he failed to see the ball cross our goal line after about 2 minutes.'



greenawayr wrote:
'Akinde's shot actually crossed the line.'



And one fan had words of comfort for relegated Luton Town...

Essex Grecians wrote:
'Thank God for our time in the Conference! This club has been rebuilt from top to bottom and should be a blueprint for all the other clubs that are in the same situation we were in a few years ago.'
