The Opposition View - Torquay

The Opposition View - Torquay

Following yesterday's 0-0 draw at Torquay, here are some views on the game from the Gulls' manager Paul Buckle and a few of their fans.

Buckle was delighted with his team's performance.

"I've had 220 games at the club and that was as good a performance as I have seen from a Torquay side," he said.

"I feel very proud. It was an excellent game of football and Wycombe are a good side but we were outstanding."

"I spent some time at Wycombe as a player and they showed they're a big club at this level with the fans they brought here today and we more than matched them."

"I really like Gary Waddock as a man and as a manager, and I said to him during the game, 'if you ever get rid of Nikki Bull, can I have him!"

'"Bull has done this to us before when he played for Aldershot. We slaughtered Wycombe today and have only taken a point for our troubles."

"Wycombe will count themselves lucky today," said the Gulls' boss.

The Torquay fans were equally bemused at how Wycombe managed to escape defeat.

The following extracts are taken from the Torquay Fans Forum, Torquay and The Football Forum.

'I can't believe we haven't won this today. So many chances - hit the woodwork twice, side netting twice, breathtaking saves from Bull. Wycombe only had one chance and Bevs could've played up front in the second half!!'

'We thrashed them 0-0. The Wycombe keeper kept his team in it...and that's not mentioning the referee who made some awful decisions and didn't award a blatant penalty for handball.'

'Can't begin to explain how much we deserved to win this game. We were absolutely dominant in every department, we just couldn't bloody score. Post, bar, off the line, side netting, brilliant saves - we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net! They never really looked like scoring and I can't recall Bevan making a save in the second half. If we get into the playoffs we should fear nobody.'

'Fantastic performance by the boys today. Just couldn't score. I thought Branston was brilliant.'

'What a frustrating afternoon. We should have won easily with such dominance, but I had a gut feeling that it would be one of those days, probably because Nikki Bull was in goal, and whatever we tried, it wouldn't go in.'

'We were never really able to get our flowing game going against a resolute and sometimes fortunate Wycombe side who rode their luck especially in the second period when we hit the woodwork a couple of times. We were good today, doing everything but score, and any honest Wycombe supporter will tell you that they were pretty fortunate to come away with a point. Had we scored one, I think the flood gates would have opened.'

Fonda wrote:
'I was surprised by Wycombe's display. They looked like a side lacking belief & confidence and desperate for a point from the outset. I wouldn't be disappointed if we ended up facing them in the Play-Offs. They look like a team trying to stumble over the line and might struggle to regain the kind of form necessary to win them.'
