Following yesterday's embarrassing capitulation against Brighton, here are some views on the game from the Seagulls' manager Gus Poyet, striker Nicky Forster and a few of their fans.
After a poor first 45 minutes, Poyet was ecstatic with his side's second half performance which saw them put four goals past a sorry looking Wycombe defence without reply.
"We were making a few mistakes in the first half but it was our problem, it was nothing to do with the opposition," said Poyet.
"But I think the second half was different class. I knew this team had qualities and in the second half we saw them. The two strikers won the game for the team. The way they got together, their passing and their ability to score - the whole team has to give credit to them." he said.
Explaining the difference between the two halves, Poyet said: "In the first half we were offside too many times but then we corrected that."
Forster revealed that Poyet had given his players a dressing down at half time.
"The gaffer was disappointed with myself and Muzza and told us in no uncertain terms," said Forster. "We were guilty of being offside far too often and were perhaps a bit too eager to get in and try and hurt them."
"A game like that where we've eventually dished out a good hiding is long overdue," he said, adding that he is happy with his personal tally and his partnership with Glenn Murray.
"There was good link up play between me and Muzza and with Liam Dickinson also playing well at the moment it's a bit of a selection dilemma for the manager," said Forster, adding that he expected Poyet would be bringing in another striker in January to further increase competition for places.
The Brighton fans weren't as overjoyed as you might expect, adopting more of an 'it was only Wycombe' attitude.

'Credit to the team for yesterdays result, but I think the five goals flattered us when you look at the comedy defending that allowed them. Having said that, you can only play against what is put in front of you.'

'Everyone will be getting silly tonight because we've scored five goals, but it's worth considering that Wycombe's defence was abysmal. A respectable team would have buried us within half an hour today. Luckily we were up against one of the two teams who have unbelievably managed to make themselves worse than us'

'The whole team was diabolical in the first half and a better side would've had us dead and buried by half time. Luckily for us Wycombe are total shit and couldn't put us away and their defence is comical.'
Meade's Ball wrote:
'I found that monster Wycombe centre-back quite funny. Murray just brushed him aside and down to his grapefruit-sized knees in the second half.'
'The mass exodus of Wycombe fans at the 5th goal was my favourite moment.'

Murray and Forster's link-up play was absolutely unplayable yesterday.'
'Fantastic win but let's not get ahead of ourselves it was only Wycombe.'
