The Opposition View

The Opposition View

Following yesterday's 1-0 defeat, here are some views on the game from the opposition manager and a few of their followers.


Manager Paul Ince told his club's official website that he was disappointed his side didn't win by more, after what he felt was a one-sided match.

'I don't want to be disrespectful to Wycombe, but the first half was like attack against defence,' said Ince. 'Stephen Gleeson set the tempo with a great tackle in the first few seconds and we just went on from there.'

'I'm disappointed we didn't get more because they had a chance in the last couple of minutes and you could come in one-all.'

'We took control from start to finish and could have killed the game many times today, but we didn't do that and that's the only disappointing thing I can say.'

Ince finished by saying: 'I've never been involved in a game where we've dominated for so long without scoring a goal. It would have been a travesty for us to come off the pitch with less than three points.'




The following opposition views are extracted from BBC606, Football Forums, The Football Forum, The Moo Camp and mkdons forum.

'That first-half was the best the team have played all season and Wycombe just didn't have a clue. I thought Exeter were bad, but they are in for a very long hard season if they continue to play like that.'

'They'll go down this season, so thank god we won't have to park there again.'

'I have never seen such a dominant first half performance from the Dons. Second half, they were pushing and pushing and it looked like they were going to score, but our back four were solid.'

'It's a tad worrying that despite having 65% of the possession it felt like we were holding on towards the end of the game, but I thought the 1st half was the most one sided I've seen for ages.'

Corleone wrote:
'I've not seen us dominate like we did in the first half for a long time. We had thirteen corners in the first half alone. I guess Wycombe got an earful at half-time and they made a bit more of a game of it in the second half. The first boos I heard from the home fans were on 35 minutes, so they certainly weren't happy.'

'Today's game was men against boys, I fear Wycombe's stay in League One is going to be a rather short one.'


Camdenite wrote:
'Shearer made two incredible saves to keep it as a contest, but was completely foxed by Doumbe taking a stroll through the Wycombe midfield and placing a pass into the bottom corner. We really should have been 3 or 4 up in the first half, but when Taylor made three changes at half time we had to endure a bit of pressure at times. Nothing clear-cut, but Wycombe were the ones looking more likely for most of the 2nd half.'



Next match for Wycombe is Swindon away on Saturday.
