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

The Opposition View

Following yesterday's 2-1 win over Stockport County, here are some views on the game from the Hatters' manager Gary Ablett and a few of their fans.


Speaking to Pure 107.8FM, the County boss was pulling no punches in a frank assessment of his side's performance.

"The only little bit of quality we showed all afternoon was the goal, apart from that we were awful," said Ablett.

"We make so many wrong decisions at times it's disappointing, so it's difficult to take any positives at all from the performance apart from the goal."

"We didn't deserve anything. We didn't deserve to take anything from the game because we weren't good enough."

"We handed them the initiative at the start of the game and at the start of the second half and we could never really recover. We said they would come out and have a right go at the beginning of the second-half and they maintained that right throughout, but we weren't good enough."



After the way some Stockport fans visited the Gasroom to gloat when they beat us in the play-offs eighteen months ago, I thought I might enjoy reading their comments today, but it's impossible not to feel sorry for a once proud club that no longer owns its own ground, is forced to share with a rugby team and is now struggling to avoid going out of existence altogether.

Their fans have more to worry about than the football and I could only find a few comments relating to yesterday's game.

The following extracts are taken from 'Yellow Board' and 'The Football Forum.'

'Gutted. We played really well first half, but came out negative in the second and fell apart in the last 20 minutes. Baker's goal was a real beauty though.'



Lord Percy wrote:
'In the first half, there wasn't much difference between the two sides. That said, they were the better footballing team and created two or three chances on the edge of the box which they could have scored from had their shooting been better. Second half we just didn't come out at all. In fact, when we scored the opener it was against the run of play and I couldn't actually remember us having had the ball in their half. From then on it was all Wycombe and it seemed inevitable that they would go on to win the game.'



Loz wrote:
'We'd have been 2 or 3 down at half time if they'd had decent strikers.'



Buckler Row wrote:
'Today for roughly 70 minutes Ablett was spot on. 4-5-1 with Bignall did the job.'



Ratzinger wrote:
'We are in big trouble right now. We are bottom, our players are nice guys but 90% of them wouldn't get a sniff in league-two and some would struggle in the Blue Prem. We don't know where cash is coming from, our ownership of the ground is dodgy at very best, and we could be selling the few decent players we have in January. We are in massive trouble.'



Ricky wrote:
'Even if we had won, it would have seemed pointless and hollow. It's impossible to find a crumb of comfort during our demise and probable, it seems, imminent winding up of the club.'
