'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View

In the wake of yesterday's eight-goal FA Cup thriller between Wycombe and Brighton, here are some views on the game from Seagulls' caretaker manager Martin Hinshelwood and a few of their fans.


Hinshelwood was speaking to his club's official website:

"I felt that the players' attitude and commitment throughout the game was first class. I was very disappointed with the goals that we conceded but it was a fair result."

"When you score four goals away from home you expect to win the match but credit to the players, they kept going and deserved the draw."

The Brighton boss felt side side had more staying power than the Chairboys, saying:

"Our lads are fit and we looked fittest at the end. They dug deep for us, it was a team performance. During the last ten minutes I thought we might have done a bit better with some of the chances but overall I have to be happy."

With regards to the referee's performance, he had some sympathy for Craig Woodman:

"Gavin Hoyte has kicked out, the referee has seen it and he is always going to send him off for that."

"With regards to their sending off, it was a little soft. If he hadn't sent Gavin off, I'm not sure he would have sent their lad off," said Hinshelwood.


The Brighton fans were entertained but unhappy with their defence and unimpressed with the referee. (sounds familiar).

The following extracts are taken from 'north stand chat.'


Giraffe wrote:'
'What the hell was their keeper doing. He couldn't kick the ball, so started rolling it five yards to the edge of his box and nearly gave away a goal several times. Very amusing.'

'This performance gives us a lot to be optimistic about and I left happy for once, bar the shocking referee display.'

'We were good going forward but let's not forget that we conceded 4 against the worst side we will play all season.'

'Great excitement today but shocking defence. I'm happy with the draw but why we played 4 at the back after the sending off I will never know, the game was there for the taking. They played 3 defenders after their sending off and looked more dangerous.'

'Ref was pretty mediocre. He got our red card right but I thought their penalty was more than a bit harsh.'

'We were terrible at the back but we could easily have scored 8. Our attack is fantastic at the moment and I think if we can get Peter Taylor in as a defensive coach as has been speculated, then whoever takes over as manager will do OK.'

'It was all very entertaining but our defence must be the most wobbly and nervous bunch I have seen in the 41 years I have been watching the Albion. Every time the ball went near our box, they just seemed to fold.'


Foolg wrote:
'Wasn't the best of atmospheres today, but was still pretty loud. Then again, we only had to out-sing 10 kids behind the goal with a drum.'


Kneon Light wrote:
'I must be the only one that thought the ref had a good game! To me it was a clear push by Virgo for the first pen and Hoyte kicked out and deserved red. Thought he got their sending off and our two pens right as well to be honest.'


Taybha wrote:
'This season has been one poor official after another. I hope Wycombe appeal their guy's red card to show just how inept this ref was. The lino was even worse, his arm must have been attached by string to a Wycombe fan (if there was one).'



Next Week: Our leaky defence pits its wits against free scoring Huddersfield Town in front of the Sky cameras.
