The Opposition View - Bournemouth

The Opposition View - Bournemouth


In the wake of yesterday's insipid capitulation at Bournemouth, here are some views on the game from the Cherries' manager Lee Bradbury and a few of their fans.

When asked on Radio Solent what he thought of the two goals, Bradbury chuckled before saying: "Yeh, they were good enough goals (more laughter) we'll take that all day. A header from Michael Symes that goes through the crowd, and a flick-on header that popped down between the two confused defenders for Wes Thomas to finish and it's a 2-0 win at home."

"For me the most disappointing thing is that we didn't win the game 4-0 in the end. We had the chances to do so and we've got to kill teams off."

"We played some really good football today and it's nice to do it at home," said the Cherries boss. "The fans came out in their thousands and I think we put on a good performance for them."

"I thought we showed good fitness levels, two games in three days is a big ask of any team."


Anyone who was there won't be surprised to read that it was impossible to find a Bournemouth fan with anything encouraging to say about Wycombe.

The following extracts are taken from Up The Cherries, Court Offside, The Football Forum and Football Forums.

"It was a training session for the most part, let's be honest. It's hard to use as a gauge of our progression but we can't complain about a comfortable win. We'll face far, far, better teams. Wycombe will go down.'


Paddy wrote:
"Completely controlled the game from first to last. So much possession and so many chances - the only criticism is that we didn't score more!'

"We should have scored 5 or 6, but it was still, essentially, a dull game, although that was Wycombe's fault, not ours.'

"Wycombe are in trouble I think. In both games against them they've looked devoid of confidence and ideas and we've had it fairly easy. A defensive cock-up allowed Thomas to punt home the first and a soft corner ended up with Symes nodding in the second, both poor goals to concede from their point of view.'

"A very comfortable win where the team seemed to play within themselves.'

"We could almost have played two at the back and I don't think Wycombe would have got close.'

"Wycombe looked terrible and I'm not surprised they're not doing too well this season. Their No7 did the work of three men. Unfortunately all three of them work for the council & two of them stood & watched while the other one wandered around scratching his head!'

"That was probably the first home game this season where we've looked comfortable keeping the lead.'

"Wycombe were appalling.'


Tierney wrote:
"Comfortable win today, but we should have used it as a chance to build the goal difference as Wycombe were never any threat. Fair play to the Wycombe fans though, good noise from them. Even pulled out the "Let's pretend we've scored a goal" classic towards the end!'
