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

The Opposition View - Port Vale


In the wake of yesterday's 2-1 defeat at Port Vale, here are some views on the game from the Valiants' manager Micky Adams and a few of their fans.


"It was a great result in a cracking game - a great advertisement for the division," Adams told the BBC.

"I'm pleased we got the rewards that we deserved. I think that we created numerous chances - we had two great chances in the first-half - particularly the one where their keeper saves from Marc Richards just on half-time - and we had chances again like that in the second-half."

"We've been saying all along that it's about time people took responsibility for scoring goals, it's not always about the front-two, so to see a centre-half get two goals is very, very pleasing."

The Vale manager felt the Blues were always a threat.

"Wycombe are a good side and I think they've shown that today, particularly when they counter-attacked. I said at half-time, the game is too open for us - I didn't enjoy it - we needed to squeeze the pitch a little bit more and make sure that they didn't counter attack us as well as they did in the first-half," said Adams.



The Vale fans enjoyed the game and had plenty of praise for Wycombe.

The following extracts are from 'onevalefan,' 'Football Forums' and 'The Football Forum.'

'Fabulous game. Two sides trying to play football on the deck. On that performance, both teams are in with a shout at the end of the season. Very disappointed that Wycombe, unbeaten away from home, brought less fans on a Saturday than Dartford did from Kent on a Tuesday night'

'Wycombe were good in possession. Evil number 5 though.'


Tone wrote:
'Wycombe's average attendance in Division One with the likes of Leeds in the mix was only 5,445. They are a relatively young club in an area full of London commuters. Wycombe is not much more than a big village and doesn't have the football heritage that a city like Stoke-on-Trent has.'

'What a fantastic game today. I doubt you'll see a more open, attacking game in League 2 this season. The Vale and Wycombe are a credit to this league.'

'I thought after they equalised we were going to get overrun. They are the best we have seen this season. They had 62% possession.'

'Really good game with two decent sides both going for it. It's so much better when one side doesn't just come for a point. Great to see a legend back home (Ainsworth)......although he did look a bit like someone who had been sleeping rough, is he on the run or something? '

'Great attitude from Ainsworth today. Every hard challenge, he got up, congratulated whoever tackled him and carried on. A pleasure to see him in a Vale shirt back then, and I've never applauded a former player's return with as much conviction as I did with him today.'


Dan Phillips wrote:
'Wycombe keep possession very well yet do nowt with it. Ainsworth still has that extra touch of class at 37. Wonderful player. Great to see him back at VP. Bull's save in first-half stoppage time to deny Richards was world class.'

'Decent side and they had a lot of possession but did nothing with it, whereas we missed four easy chances.'

'A first class game between two sides worthy of being near the top of the division. The whole affair was a credit to L2 football. The referee had a good game too with no dreadful decisions although I was convinced their goal was punched into the net.'

'I thought Boom Boom may have controlled the ball with his arm for our second goal.'

'I'm sure Wycombe will be aggrieved at not getting something from the match, but the final result would have been a rout if we had taken the chances we created.'

'Seriously WOW - what a game. Credit to both teams, fantastic match all round, similar to a cup tie or derby game. The best game this season by far.'


DonDon Valiant wrote:
'We should have had four really, Wycombe played good football but only threatened twice.'

'One of the best games I've seen at VP for ages. Wycombe are a good attacking side, but we wanted it more. Absolutely brilliant performance against a decent side who will be up there at the end of the season.'
