The Opposition View

The Opposition View

Following yesterday's defeat at Southampton, here are some views on the game from Saints' manager Alan Pardew and a few of their fans.


Pardew was delighted to see his side emerge from the relegation zone and was particularly pleased to have kept a rare clean sheet.

"We defended well. They had a lot of possession in the second half by taking a lot of chances, but they didn't have a shot I can remember Bart dealing with, other than a long distance shot."

"They play a high line Wycombe and take a chance - if it works they keep the pressure on you which they did in the second half - but they are vulnerable and we should have capitalised with the many chances we had."

"We were overplaying and taking an extra pass, when playing it down the sides and delivering it into the box has been a problem for any opposition we've played. We just lost our way and our shape, but we changed it and I thought we started to trouble them, we put balls into the box, got down the sides and had so many chances."



Most Saints' fans thought Wycombe were awful.

'Wycombe didn't really offer too much threat other than a late surge in the final 15 minutes and if we weren't so wasteful we could have had a few more tonight.'

'Let's put the win in perspective. Wycombe are the worst side I have ever seen at St Mary's. They were arguably the worst league side I have ever seen.'

'Painful viewing, but a clean sheet and out of the bottom 4, so really mustn't complain too much. Can't help but feel that semi-competent opposition would have beaten us tonight though.'

'The game should have been over by half time but for some awful finishing. How Waigo missed that chance to put us 1-0 up I will never know. We could have easily dropped points against a very poor Wycombe team who look certain for the drop.'



Gemmel wrote:
'One minute we're playing smooth passing football and ripping them apart, the next we're plagued by individual, sloppy, schoolboy errors. But in between our moments of uncertainty, we murdered them.'

'A good win, and obviously we're all delighted with the clean sheet as well. But let's not get too carried away. As a Season ticket holder who's also been to most away games, that was definitely the worst team we've played all season.'

'We thrashed them 1-0. I think Bart only had one save to make all night.'

'Any other team in L1 would probably have whipped our butts tonight - some of their passing was comical and the football for large parts was dire.'

'Did they have a shot on target? I don't remember one.'

'Wycombe had lots of possession but they couldn't craft a decent chance out of it.'

'Pardew again made some astute changes, switching to 4-4-2 once Wycombe had revealed their complete lack of attacking ambition.'

'We murdered them and it should have been 5-0 at least. Wycombe looked like a pub team.'



There was one....
