The Opposition View - Crewe

The Opposition View - Crewe


Following yesterday's uplifting 2-0 win over Crewe, here are some views on the game from the Railwaymen's manager Dario Gradi and a few of their fans.


Speaking to his club's official website, Gradi said: "We tend to make crucial mistakes at important times and those incidents shape games. We have had our penalty saved and they have scored theirs and that's how the game has gone."

"I thought they were both strange penalties if I'm honest. I thought they were both debatable but if a defender touches someone in the penalty area, then I don't have much sympathy."

"We didn't create enough chances in the second half. We did in the first-half and both our strikers had chances but rushed them a bit when they had a chance to take another touch."

"We have made mistakes. The lads have played reasonably well but they all have a mistake in them."


The Crewe fans were as downhearted as you would expect after eleven straight defeats on the road.

The following extracts are taken from Vital Crewe and Crewe Mad.

'The entire game was won and lost in five minutes of madness. Up until then we were well in the game and Wycombe were a bag of nerves. Donaldson's penalty was weak and Wycombe went up the other end and finished it as a contest through a blatant dive that even Ainsworth himself was ashamed of. We weren't in it for most of the second half and Wycombe could have had another two.'

'Funny how we can score penalties when we're on the way to an 8-1 romp but not when it really matters.'

'Dario clearly can't motivate the team. Eleven losses away from home is not good enough.'
