The Opposition View - Notts County


Following yesterday's thoroughly deserved 1-1 draw against Notts County at Meadow Lane, here are some views on the game from the Magpies' manager Martin Allen, their goalscorer Ben Burgess, and a selection of their fans.

"Great start, but I think that was probably the highlight of the afternoon," said Allen, speaking to his club's official website.

"The supporters got behind the players and the players tried to get it going, but we didn't get any momentum into our play. We didn't play our normal good, quick, passing style of play, and I think the result was a fair result, I don't think we can complain about that," he said.

Asked what his keeper was doing for Wycombe's equaliser, Allen replied: "Stuart Nelson made several great saves; the lad's hit a great shot and that was it, it's a goal."

"They've got a good young team. They got promoted last year and they've got some very, very, dangerous young players, but we weren't quite at our best today."

County goalscorer Ben Burgess said: "We're so disappointed to draw, but in the end they probably deserved it because for the last twenty minutes they really took the game to us and we sat back which was disappointing."

"We just sort of waited for them to score, which isn't good enough."


Most County fans were gracious enough to admit that Wycombe fully deserved at least a point from the game.

"MA got it wrong today. They changed their tactics and he failed to respond. They brought on two speedy players and we responded by playing deeper which was a big risk that didn't come off. It allowed them to push both full backs forward and it was like having two wingers on each side. If you defend on the edge of the box for the last 10 minutes you're asking for trouble even against a poor side.'

"I thought they were quite good. Especially second half. I'm surprised they're struggling. Maybe they found some form from somewhere.'

"Defending too deep, no width and a midfield that was bossed by Wycombe! ... and the worse thing was we could all see their goal coming.'

"It was tough to watch today. In the second-half their keeper was the only player in their half so we never had an outlet when we won the ball.'

"Why is this clown still in goal, he makes mistakes most matches and still he plays. People will say he played well today, but the two ''amazing'' saves he made were camera saves, and his mistake at the end was horrible.'

"His save in the first half beggared belief - he had no right to save that one. What he was doing on the goal is anybody's guess, it looked like a schoolboy error from the Kop.'

"There were many factors in why we didn't win today - Hughes' miss, shocking midfield, crap tactics, sitting back inviting pressure, etc, etc.'

"If we'd played a decent team, we'd have got absolutely tonked today.'
