Following yesterday's deeply satisfying 2-0 win at Colchester United, here are some comments from U's manager John Ward and a few of their fans.
"You're always disappointed when you've lost a game because we're talking about a strong squad and a good squad of players," Ward told the Essex County Standard.
"If we had won, it would have been four more games until a final, but we haven't done that and we now have to work very hard on Saturday and put this one to bed and please our supporters a little bit, because they'll be disappointed with the second half."
The Colchester fans were understandably concerned about their team's poor finishing.
The following extracts are from cufc chat, BBC606 and the unofficial Colchester United message board.
'I'll be honest, £6 was about £7 too much to charge for last night. It was a cup competition, with so called professional footballers, who, to be honest, looked like they didn't care. I was embarrassed by our lack of enthusiasm for 90 minutes against a woeful Wycombe side. It could have been a cricket score but in the end it just looked like a training game.'
'Complete and utter waste of time tonight. Despite once again looking the better team, there's no one to score. All pre-season people said we needed a goal scorer and we still do. The team tonight had no urgency and just looked like they wanted to go out.'
'Nothing happened last night to make me feel that the Club has anything more to offer this season than last. Therefore for the first time in 50 years, as a matter of choice, I will not be turning up week in week out to watch them.'
'Personally, I thought we were excellent for 70 minutes without finding the net. I would point out that their keeper had a decent game and his save shortly after their goal was superb. Given what I've seen over the past three years, I'd rather miss 15 chances every match, than under Lambert, not have a chance in four matches! Doesn't anyone remember? Think back, its sooooo much better now.'
'We absolutely bossed it until Izzet and others were subbed, only then did Wycombe come into it for the last 20 minutes or so. We're just hopeless in front of goal.'
'There's only one stat that counts - 0-2. We may have had three-times as many attempts on goal, but how many of those were decent efforts? I can recall Wycombe hitting the woodwork a couple of times and forcing Williams into two fine saves as well as scoring their two goals. I couldn't see us scoring all night.'

'Thought we could have had a trip to Wembley out of this. Bit gutted to be honest.'
'Twenty-two shots and no goals. Shocking.'

'Oh for another McGleish.'
'In my opinion we should have snapped up Bas Savage in the summer.'
'What sort of reception did Roy McDonough get? Did the Wycombe fans have anything to say about him?'
'The Wycombe fans were clearly too young to even have the faintest idea who he was so no abuse from them.'

and my personal favourite.....
'You could have picked 3 or 4 people out of the stand, and do you know something, they wouldn't have scored any less goals.'
