The Opposition View - Crewe

The Opposition View - Crewe


Following yesterday's heavy defeat at Crewe, here are some views on the game from the Railwaymen's manager Dario Gradi and a few of their fans.

"I thought we were worth our win," said Gradi. "We were making chances and not putting them away. You're always worried when you're getting the chances and not scoring and we didn't pass it quite as well as we did at Shrewsbury, but we were well worth our win. If you look at the shots and the chances we had, I would think we were way ahead."

Praising his forwards, the Crewe boss said: "Clayton was remarkable. I thought he was unlucky with a chance in the first half but he took his two goals really well. All three goals were really good. Shaun is having his best season and there is more to come from him. I am certainly not looking for new strikers"

"I think Gary will be saying that our forwards were too hot to hold, too quick to hold."

"We let them back into it by overplaying in our own penalty area and trying to roll the ball out when we should be clearing it, but we picked up on that and I don't think we gave them a chance in the second half. I don't think the boys really made a mistake."


The Crewe fans were delighted with yet another fine performance from their team.

'I thought we were quality today! We looked very solid at the back for the most part and managed to put our chances away.'

'I thought we were underselling ourselves in the 1st half and they were ordinary. First goal would have been really crucial as they would have sat behind it. Second half the real CAFC came out and BAM! Classy Crewe Cruise Control Weak Wycombe.'

'Second half performance was a true joy to behold. First half for the first 20 minutes the football was good, but after 20 minutes they came into the game a little. They tried to play football which was nice to see but it benefited us big time. They just couldn't cope with us and we produced the performance that we all know we are capable of.'

'Thankfully we don't live to rue Donaldson's misses as at the moment he still manages to score at least one. Miller's quality in front of goal also deserves a mention - league's best strike force without doubt.'

'There are so many positives from today's game: the players reaction to the crowd; the fact that they are a team and the togetherness is palpable; a defence that looks very solid; a midfield that, whilst it isn't the most talented I've seen, makes up for it in effort and workrate; and a strike force that bamboozles defenders. ok they lost, but I think Wycombe were the best side I have seen at Gresty Road this season. Credit to them, they kept going and nearly scored - but our three goals were peaches.'


Yabba wrote:
'Best win of the season so far. There were times when we just took Wycombe apart. If Donaldson had taken that gilt-edged opportunity in the 1st half like he should of, he would have had a great hat trick today. WATCH OUT LEAGUE 2, CREWE ALEXANDRA ARE ON THE MARCH!'

'Ecstatic tonight. Probably played the best football in years over the last week. I know it's an impossibility, but play like this every week and we'd win the league by a healthy margin.'


TimeyWimey wrote:
'We were astonishingly good. Not sure where it's all gone right and if it'll all go wrong again but I really hope the players can keep it up, they certainly have the ability because our attacking play is second to none in this league and, whilst I still wouldn't trust them to sit on a four goal lead with 30 seconds to play, our defence seems to be settling.'
