The Opposition View - Bury

The Opposition View - Bury

Following yesterday's 3-1 win at Bury, here are some views on the game from the Shakers' manager Richie Barker and a few of their fans.

Barker was gracious in defeat.

"It definitely wasn't our day," he said. "Fair play to Wycombe, they made it difficult for us, they closed us down quickly, and it's the first time someone's come here in my reign and taken the game to us. I thought it would suit us, but unfortunately it didn't."

Talking about the second-half, the Bury boss said: "For the first twenty-five minutes we didn't have a shot and that was disappointing, but I knew that if we stayed in the game long enough an opportunity would come, and it did, but their goalkeeper's pulled off a tremendous save from Ryan Lowe."

The Bury fans were quick to concede that Wycombe deserved their victory.

The following extracts are taken from 'the mighty shakers' and The Football Forum.

'Credit where credit's due, Wycombe are a very good side and deserved the three points. Their fans were a credit to the club as well and I hope they come up with us.'

Squire of the Gate wrote:
'The game kicked off and it seemed fairly even, the penalty looked like the gift we needed and it was blast-off time as Lowe put us 1-0 up, but that was it bar a couple of shots, and I thought Wycombe dominated and wanted it more than us.'

'Wycombe were perhaps the best team I've seen at Gigg this season in terms of pressing. We never had time on the ball, and once they got the measure of Kyle Bennett who gave them a chasing in the first 15 minutes, we were struggling. That said, despite Wycombe being on top for most of the time, we still had a couple of decent chances in the second half.'

'They were great. Skillful and, motivated, they fully deserved their win. Their fans were friendly, noisy and gracious too.'

'That was awful, not one Bury player can come out of that with any credit whatsoever. Got to give credit to Wycombe, they came with a good game plan and it worked. Even when we went 1-0 up I wasn't confident. Their support in terms of numbers was very poor - I expected them to bring at least 1,000 - however they more than made up for it by singing throughout the game '

'Wycombe played well and fully deserved the win. Could have been a different story had we taken our chance to go two-up just before they scored. Two great saves from their goalie denied us a point, which in truth, would have been harsh on them.'

'I thought Wycombe totally outplayed us today and got their tactics spot on.'

'Did anyone else notice that the Wycombe fans all joined in the applause for those who left us this season. Well done to them, a credit to their club.'

'Wycombe are probably the nicest bunch of fans in the league.'

'Nice touch from their players to acknowledge our applause when they went off the pitch as well. Fair play to them, they gave us a game, and most of our fans appreciated it. Thumbs down to the few numpties sitting behind us who taunted their fans with some pretty filthy language.'
