The Opposition View

Following yesterday's 6-0 annihilation at the hands of Huddersfield Town, here are some views on the game from Terriers' manager Lee Clark and a few of their fans.

'It was about good players playing well,' said Clark.

'I have a lot of attacking flair in the team and they enjoy doing it. It's no exaggeration to say that we could have been in double figures. We've had a few kicked off the line, we've missed a few, we've hit the post and the keeper's made some terrific saves, so we're delighted.'

Revealing that he had done his homework on the Chairboys, the Terriers' manager continued:

'On the training ground we are working a lot on the situations that you get in a match day. We did a lot of work on Wycombe, as we do all teams, and my players turned in a magnificent performance that was not just attacking, we also got another clean sheet which was really pleasing.'

The Huddersfield fans were over the moon with their side's performance and thought we had the worst defence they had ever seen.

'Wycombe should go away absolutely delighted that it was only 6-0. I'd say round about 15-0 would've been more accurate.'

'Credit to Wycombe, their heads didn't drop, and they kept trying to push forward - but I don't think I have ever seen a defence so comprehensively shredded.'

'We play some quality attacking football and any full-backs not up to the pace will suffer.'

'Wycombe's defence had no organization, they were badly outpaced and second to every ball.'

'Wycombe gave us space to play but that's mainly because they came to attack and make a game of it. That appears to be how they approach games generally, rightly or wrongly. Obviously it isn't working too well at the moment but I thought it was refreshing to see a team trying to play the right way, even if they do get beaten.'

'Wycombe were ridiculously poor - we could have easily scored ten or twelve and that score wouldn't have flattered us.'

'I have been to many football matches and people often stand out for being good, but it is unbelievably rare for someone to stand out because they were so poor, however their left back, number 23 (Westwood) stood out so much because he was so bad!'

'Their left-back looked like Glen Johnson but that's where the similarity ended.'

'Well done to the Wycombe supporters who were walking away from the match singing in their fancy dress, but let's face it, in their position if they didn't sing, they would be crying.'

There was some good news....

Whew, that's a relief.

So we move on to the FA Cup replay at Brighton on Wednesday. There's obviously not enough time to recruit a new defence before then, so a clean sheet's right out of the question and with the Seagull's having an equally dodgy back-four, we might as well just try to outscore them again.
