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

The Opposition View - Aldershot


Following yesterday's goalless draw at Aldershot, here are some views on the game from the Shots' assistant manager Gary Owers and a few of their fans.

Owers felt that Aldershot created more than enough chances to have comfortably beaten the Chairboys.

"We played well and didn't take our chances as anybody who was at the game would hopefully agree. It's just finishing off in the final third - and how many times have you heard us say that this season."

Praising a defence which prevented Wycombe from having a single shot on target, Owers said: "We can't be any happier with the way things are at the back and we've just got to force the issue a bit more in the final third."


The Shots' fans took great satisfaction from the fact that Kevin Dillon's side more than matched Gary Waddock's Blues on yesterday's performance.

The following extracts are taken from Shots Talk and BBC606.

'But for some poor finishing. Aldershot would have won handsomely.'

'What did you see from Wycombe that sets Waddock out as a great manager? I saw nothing and after all the money he has spent - 125,000 for Rendell - plus he signed Davies who we wanted but couldn't afford. We were miles better. How many former players would you have back after what you saw today. My answer is none. We have a better side and our management got the best out of a much cheaper team today.'


RickShot wrote:
'Our tactics were spot on and the Wycombe players' legs had completely gone at the end. If Dillon could go out and spend 100,000 + on a striker like Wycombe, maybe we would have that goalscorer everyone talks about. The Wycombe fans must be disgusted that with our small budget and their large budget and transfer spending Dillon has built a better team.'

'We were clearly better than Wycombe who managed the sum total of zero shots on goal. Not bad for a strike force with a 125k striker on the bench. We had 5 excellent chances today, and but for the post, the bar and a brilliant Nikki Bull we could have won 5-0.'

'This was not a Waddock side of old, he is learning that in this league everything is built on a good defence, and they certainly earned their corn today.'


Rocky wrote:
'All I can say is Waddock and his team came into a potentially hostile environment and went home with a point. Who has bragging rights at the moment? Not us!'



Marcus wrote:
'It was a classic game of two halves with Wycombe dominant before the break and us afterwards. Once again we looked more dangerous and created far more pressure when we went to 4-4-2, but yet again we only woke up and had a go in the last 20 minutes. It was another afternoon all about what might have been.'


Stenhouse wrote:
'Having watched footie for 45 years and been a referee for ten, that game, like every other home game this season was dire! Playing one up front at home until less than 10 mins from the end is not conducive to entertaining football.'

'I thought it was unutterably tedious from start to finish. How anyone could find that match remotely entertaining I'll never know.'


Next Game: Wycombe v Shrewsbury - 25th Sept - 3.00pm
