The Opposition View - Morecambe

The Opposition View - Morecambe


In the wake of yesterday's season opener in which the Chairboys beat Morecambe 2-0, here are some views on the game from the Shrimps' manager Sammy McIlroy and a few of their fans.


McIlroy felt his side played well enough to have taken something from the game.

"I was proud of the lads," he told his club's official website. "I thought they were fantastic and if things had gone a bit more our way we could have got something from the game."

"Every single player deserves credit for their performance and it certainly showed me that we have something to build on."

Commenting on the penalty awarded to Wycombe in the first-half, McIlroy said: "Chris Shuker was unlucky to catch the lad (Matt Bloomfield) and the ball was running out of play as well so it was really unfortunate. At the other end we had a claim ourselves, but it didn't go our way and those things can happen."



The Morecambe fans were honest in their appraisal of the game and gave Wycombe full credit for their excellent first-half performance.

The following extracts are from Shrimpsvoices and BBC606.

'Wycombe in the first-half gave the best performance I have seen in League Two! Quite honestly we did well not to be stuffed 4-0 in the first 45 minutes. We won't get a harder game.'

'I thought Wycombe were really good and their second goal was a sizzler. Maybe their defence wasn't as good as their midfield and their excellent attackers, but if this is relegation material from League One, we will need to be scorching hot to compete next season. One final point. The atmosphere was almost surreal at times. Adams Park looks good and there were enough Wycombe fans to have created noise but they didn't. I kind of like the banter and aggro from the northern fans a lot more, it pumps things up. Wycombe played well, but it was more like a pre-season game where nobody could be arsed to sing.'

'Apart from the dubious penalty decision I thought Wycombe were the better team and they should have had a couple before the break. I thought we played better in the second half until the second goal which was quality by Pittman and killed us off. Roche made some very decent saves throughout the match, but couldn't do anything to keep out Pittman's long range angled drive.'

Wycombe should've had a player sent off, their first goal was harsh and for their second goal we didn't seem to close Pitman down and he had time to curl it in.

I think the key issue for me was, in the first half Jevons was lost playing on his own. Although we only conceded from a penalty we could have been buried by half time. Then when we had two up-front in the second half, we battered Wycombe and probably deserved something from the game
