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

The Opposition View


Following yesterday's fine win over Hartlepool United, here are some views on the game from The Monkey Hangers' boss Chris Turner and a few of their fans.


Turner was making no excuses and admitted Wycombe fully deserved to win.

"There is no doubt that Wycombe were the better team and deserved to beat us today," he told his club's official website.

"We never really got going this afternoon. It just astounds me that they can put in performances like they did last weekend and then today just not show the energy or drive. It was the kind of game where you have to roll your sleeves up, go in where it hurts and really battle for everything, but it felt like some of the players were just out on their feet," said Turner.


The Hartlepool fans seemed a little shocked at being thoroughly outplayed by the Chairboys.

The following extracts are taken from Vital Hartlepool, The Poolie Bunker, The Football Forum and Into The Blue.

'Its easy to blame Chris Turner but I was there today and ALL fourteen players were rubbish. Turner played the same starting eleven as the last two games. BLAME THE GUTLESS, USELESS, BUNCH OF WASTERS that played. Worst performance I have seen EVER! This should have been 5-0 not 2-0.'

'We were shocking. 2-0 flattered us. 8-0 was more accurate, every corner looked like a goal.'

'I've just witnessed probably the worst performance of the season, with the least amount of effort. If Wycombe had won 6-0 we could still have classed ourselves as lucky.'

'Just home after escaping from the most gutless performance I've ever witnessed which made Wycombe look like world beaters. The only thing missing was a hat-trick from Westwood. The game was watched in disbelief and numbed silence by quite a large crew of Pools supporters.'

'I dread to think what damage a really good side would have done to us today. Wycombe were full value for their win and should have won by a few more. They regularly got into great positions only to deliver a rank bad final ball. Revell was probably the worst culprit. Time and again he beat his man only to put the ball into a different postcode. But Wanderers were lively and up for it. We were flat and disinterested.'


Next Game: Tranmere v Wycombe - 13th April - 7.45pm
