In the wake of yesterday's home defeat, Wycombe Wanderers' manager Peter Taylor pulled no punches in his assessment of the Chairboys first-half performance.
Speaking to his club's 'Chairboys Player' website service after the game, Taylor showed refreshing candour.
'The crowd reaction at half-time was absolutely right, I'd have booed them myself.' he said.
'I thought the first-half was totally unacceptable personally speaking and I think that certain players, and I've told them, have got to have a real good think to themselves, because we've got to do a lot better than that.'
'It's a little bit of a toss of the coin at times how certain players are going to perform, but I was very surprised by the nervous start.'
'MK Dons are a very good team,' said Taylor, 'you don't want to lose the ball to them, but even when we won the ball we just nervously played it long to nobody, which then means it's going to end up being another attack against us, so it means we're defending too much.'
Taylor was much happier with the way the Chairboys performed after the break.
'I enjoyed the second-half,' he said. 'I think we did some very good things. We had a bit more of a go and we looked a bit more athletic, a bit more exciting.'
Talking about the second-half substitutions, Taylor said: 'I was tempted to start with the two wide players but in the end I didn't. I was very pleased with Kevin Betsy. I thought he looked class at times.'
The Wycombe boss also had praise for Chris Zebroski's contribution after half time.
'Zebroski I thought was absolutely fantastic second half,' said Taylor. 'I thought he won most headers, didn't stop closing them down and didn't stop making forward runs. And that's the situation we're in, we need that, but we need it for ninety minutes.'
