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

The Opposition View - Chesterfield


In the wake of yesterday's 4-1 hammering at Chesterfield, here are some views on the game from the Spireites' manager John Sheridan and a few of their fans.


"I thought we played really, really well," Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"We passed the ball and moved the ball well and created opportunities."

"I think the performance, considering who we were playing, was a big statement. It was a big game. Obviously if they win the game, they go three points behind us with a game in hand, so it was a performance that will make people will look up."


The Chesterfield fans were delighted to have won so easily.

The following extracts are taken from Bob's Board, Football Forums and The Football Forum.

'All I've got to say is, Wycombe second in the league? - you're having a laugh - we murdered them. They were a discredit to their position.'

'Your playing second in the League of the back of the worst performance this season, so what do you do? You go out on a Tuesday night and pin the second best team in the League against the wall, strangle them and don't let go until they get the message loud and clear.'

'I think we left them in no doubt that if they or anyone else wants a scrap for the title we're more than capable of giving them one.'

'The really scary thing was how we had key players missing but still turned in a performance like that. With Morgan, Smalley, Lester and Davies we have a front 4 that's better than anything in this division.'

'We were playing with two left backs (one playing centre back); a right winger/striker at right back; a left midfielder in centre midfield and a striker on the wing, and Wycombe were still lucky to only lose 4-1.'

'It was funny when their keeper was booked for launching the ball over the away end, as up to that point it was about the only time he'd kicked it properly!!'

'As the match started it was obvious we meant business. We were getting into Wycombe's faces, doing the basics right, and long before we scored I knew there was only going to be one winner.'

'We made Wycombe look very poor indeed. Sheridan's attacking line-up seemed to win the mental battle in the first ten minutes as we were all over them right from the start.'


MDCCCLXVI wrote:
'Not only did we beat the second-placed team, we blew them away in the same manner we destroyed opponents during the first three months of the season - and with a makeshift back four! There was an energy, desire, and fluency that's been missing since before Christmas as everyone in a blue shirt contributed to a truly awesome performance. Frankly, 4-1 flattered Wycombe.'
