The Opposition View - Macclesfield Town

The Opposition View - Macclesfield Town


Following yesterday's clueless performance against the Silkmen, here are some views on the game from Macclesfield manager Gary Simpson and a few of their fans.

In trying to explain his side's unexpected victory, a delighted Simpson neatly encapsulated some of the main differences between the two sides.

"We've worked on our finishing all week," he said.

"We came with a game plan."

"We decided to go with pace up top because we thought we might catch them out."

He finished by pointing out - quite correctly - "The game could have been over at half-time - we could have been four or five goals up."


There weren't many Macclesfield fans at Adams Park but those who made the trip enjoyed watching their side outwit and outbattle their expensively assembled hosts.

The following extracts are taken from Wraggs to Riches, Vital Macclesfield, The Silk Web and The Football Forum.

'Veiga was outstanding at times. He made a cracking save just before we scored to keep it at 0-0 with virtually their only chance of the first half-hour. Junior and Tyrone then scored with two blistering shots. We should really have been ahead before we scored. Wycombe grossly underestimated us and were totally shocked at how we took the game to them early on.'

'We came here looking for three points right from the off. We had attack after attack and they were completely shocked and it paid off. The Wycombe fans were silenced at the start and us macc fans - all 60 of us - sang our hearts out for the whole 90 minutes and got our reward.'

'For once the Macc took their chances in a first-half that could well have been 5-2. The Chairboys then dominated the second half but couldn't get past.'

'We battered them for most of the first half. We had three decent chances in the first 5 mins, and after the two goals Emile had two other great chances and Hamza hit the crossbar from 30 yards out. I was worried we might rue not getting a third before half time. It was a different Wycombe team that came out for the second half and they were all over us for 20 minutes. They got their goal, but then they just stopped playing. In the end we held out fairly comfortably.'

'The players will be buzzing after today, especially having scoring a couple of wonder goals. Let's hope they play with the monkey off their back against Vale next Saturday and we see what they are really capable of.'

'Just the kick start we needed.'


If anyone needs a kick start it's Wycombe.
