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

The Opposition View

Following Wycombe Wanderers' 1-0 defeat to Carlisle United yesterday afternoon, here are some views on the game from the Cumbrians' boss Greg Abbott and a few of their fans.


Speaking to Sporting Life, Abbott revealed that yesterday's goalscorer Vincent Pericard only played after being given an injection in his Achilles tendon.

"We kept the injection secret," said Abbott. "Vince just gets on with the job and he put in a good shift."

Delighted with his side's five game unbeaten run which has taken them up to 11th in the table, the Carlisle boss said: "It's a nice place to be right now and it's important we try to keep it going. We've had some tough times and now we are turning the corner."

"Today we played some fantastic football in the the first half and could have been out of sight in the first ten minutes, but most important was our clean sheet. We protected our goal well and we will always create chances and score goals the way we are playing at the moment."



The Carlisle fans gave a mixed bag of comments, ranging from the usual 'they're near the bottom so they must be rubbish so we should have hammered them,' to the more considered view that we gave them a run for their money in the second half.

The following extracts are taken from CUFC Online, The Football Forum, and BBC606.

'Who can blame the fans for staying away when Abbott continues to serve up boring, negative, turgid, long-ball 4-5-1 rubbish. Scraping a lucky win against, lets face it, the divisional whipping boys, is nothing to be satisfied about - that level of performance is a disgrace.'

'They had a lively, fast forward line who were only let down by their finishing. I believe Wycombe are on the way up.'

'A win's a win and we could have been 3-0 up at half-time if luck had gone our way.'

'The referee was very poor. If I was a Wycombe fan I would feel very aggrieved. The Lino on paddock side was also awful and we benefitted greatly in the first half.'

"A game we deserved to win, but it was pretty poor overall. You can see why Wycombe struggle - their defence is a shambles and gives them little time to push forward or have a go for goals, and when they do, they seem to lack a decent forward, probably things Waddock will be trying to sort when January comes."

'A very poor show against a weak side. Our keeper wasn't even tested.'

'It was quite a comfortable win in the end despite them having plenty of possession in the second-half. We really need to start taking our chances though, we should have been 3-0 up within the first 10 mins.'

'Very poor home performance against one of the worst teams in the league.'

'Wycombe had won three out of four in the league and actually looked a lot better than many other teams we have played.'

'Their defence was rubbish. Pericard's so slow he couldn't catch a cold but he had them beaten for pace and we should have had 5 or 6 in the first half alone. Fortunately their strikers were awful as well.'

'First half we were superb and Wycombe were let off the hook going in only 1-0 down at half time, it really could have been 4 or 5 at that stage. Second half Wycombe upped their game, had a few very good chances and were the better team. We defended well and got a good win in the end. Wycombe will be fine I think. There are far worse sides in this League than them.'

'It was a great game of football today with both teams getting the ball down and causing each other all sorts of problems.'
