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

A Boro fan's views ahead of the game


Ahead of tomorrow's game against Stevenage at Broadhall Way, fcboro editor Matt answers a few questions for us.


What's the biggest difference you've noticed now that you play in the Football League?

The biggest difference I have noticed is that teams are all at a similar standard. There isn't much of a gap between the average and poor teams. I don't think we've been outplayed by anyone so far this season, but then again we haven't played the likes of Rotherham, Chesterfield or Port Vale yet. In the Conference there would be a few games that you would be able to assign 3 points to before you kicked a ball, but you can't do that in League 2. It's a much more competitive league than I previously thought.


You've started quite well, have supporters' expectations changed as a result?

Up until the the last 2 games, we hadn't started that well. I don't think the expectations have changed. A lot of people will be happy and expect a mid-table finish and that's where I expect we will end up.


Where do you personally think you'll finish?

After seeing the first 9 games, I think we will finish around 10th-12th. We are adapting to this level quickly and are a good side, but we're still maybe a little short of a promotion winning side.


How would you describe your team's style of play?

It varies really. When we played Cheltenham and Torquay, there was a lot of long ball which was awful to watch. However against Lincoln and Hereford, we played some nice stuff. I think it depends on the opposition. We seem to resort to long ball tactics against the better teams because we get closed down quicker and are not allowed to play our football. I expect to see that on Saturday.


Where are you strongest - defence, midfield or attack?

I still think we are strongest in defence. We've had a few issues this season, but still haven't conceded more than 1 goal in a game since the opening day of the league season. Our problem before bringing in Holroyd on loan was scoring goals, as we have been doing alright elsewhere.


Who has been your best player so far?

Difficult one really. I think I'll go for John Ashton. He's been solid at the back and very consistent so far this season. Chris Holroyd has come in and done superbly since joining on loan too.


How has John Mousinho been doing?

I like Mousinho. He does the simple things well which I think you need in a team. So far he has played the majority of the games in midfield and done well. He gets around the pitch and likes to get forward as well as do the defensive side of things. One of our better signings over the summer.


What do you expect to see from Wycombe?

I thought at the start of the season that you would be one of the strongest teams in the division. You have made a slow start, but I still think you'll be there or thereabouts. I expect to see an organised outfit that will be difficult to break down.


Take a wild guess at the final score.

I'll go for 1-1. It looks like neither team concede too many goals.


Thank you Matt - good stuff.
