The Opposition View - Exeter City

The Opposition View - Exeter City


Following yesterday's fine 3-1 win over Exeter City, here are some views on the game from the Grecians' manager Paul Tisdale and a few of their fans.

"I think we were energetic and motivated," said the Exeter boss. "We had a large spell of the game first half where we could have scored a couple and maybe should have done, and the scoreline probably doesn't reflect how I think we played."

"We put a lot of pressure on their goal from between ten minutes into the game and forty minutes, and I'm disappointed we didn't get another goal."

"I'm sure Gary Waddock is very pleased with his team of course, but largely I'm very pleased with our side and I think we were good value for a result today."

When asked if he thought Wycombe's hat-trick hero Marcello Trotta was a handful, Tisdale replied: "Handful is normally used to describe a player who is physical and gets around the pitch. He wasn't that type of player, he was a handful in terms of his touch and his ability to score, so I just think his effect on the game was huge."

"The ball came to his feet in our box three times and he's scored three goals. He made the difference in the game."

"For all our good play, the reality is we've conceded three goals, and a large part of that is down to an exceptional talent at this level who scored three goals."


The Exeter fans were generally unhappy and felt the scoreline wasn't a fair reflection of the game.

"What a frustrating game! Wycombe were slow and vulnerable at the back. They were however, one of the better attacking teams I have seen in the division. If they keep that front four together for the rest of the season they will almost certainly stay up. Trotta was excellent in the penalty area and I was also surprised by Beavon's pace and work rate.'

"The game centred around the penalty miss - if that had gone in, we would have won.'

"On the pitch our front three looked good in the first half but I think their keeper only made one save, and in the second half he didn't make any, apart from from the most pathetic penalty in the history of the world. Relegation looms unless things change.'

"We were pretty poor against a Wycombe team that offered very little.'

"We had more shots on goal in the first half than I have seen in the rest of the season put together. It was an odd defeat in that no one played particularly badly and it was more down to a handful of individual mistakes: a missed penalty and goals conceded at the near post. Oh, and having Trotta on their side helped a lot - he oozed class, quite apart from his goals.'

"The scoreline flattered Wycombe.'

"We started slowly like we hadn't trained for a day or two and were still mentally wearing party hats. Wycombe couldn't believe their luck and although they were apprehensive and a little nervous, they needn't have been as we had very little to trouble them with. 3-1 did flatter them a little though.'

"We played well, they just had one amazing striker who separated the two sides.'


The Hammer wrote:
"Anyone see what happened in the corner after the game? One bloke said Tis was having a go at a negative fan and actually swore at the bloke.'


hatch4england wrote:
"When the guy had a go, Tis came over and said 'was that you?' When he said it was, Tis swore at him (twice) saying 'show some '@@'@ respect' When asked (no swearing) how much respect he thought he was showing by swearing at the supporter, he just strode off.'

"Tisdale was angry because we lost to a team with a bit of pace that we really should be beating 8 times out of 10 and will certainly beat at St James. He wont shout at the team or the Ref so shouts at a fan who must have said something pretty daft. The team did try second half. In fact for periods of the first half at 1-1 we should have scored a hatful and it would have been a different story.'

"Maybe a season with derbies against Torquay, Bristol Rovers and Plymouth wouldn't be the worst thing in the world."
