The Opposition View - Exeter City

The Opposition View - Exeter City

Following yesterday's superb 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.

Tisdale reacted to the defeat by challenging the Exeter fans' expectations.

"People need to understand that we are in a very good league and we're a very small club at this level," he said.

"At some point we we're going to have a hard time and we're having it now. It shouldn't be a surprise to people, it's certainly not a surprise to me."

"We'll have to fight to the end...Whatever happens it's not doom and gloom, it's a high quality problem we find ourselves with. We're in League One - we worked very hard to get here, and it's going to be very hard to maintain our League One status year after year."

"That's not a defeatist attitude, that's a realistic attitude and we've got to keep going," said the Exeter boss.

The Exeter fans knew how important the game was and reacted to the defeat with anger and disappointment.

"An absolutely passionless, effortless, clueless and hopeless performance. Do the players give a ****? I think not! Worst performance I've ever seen. I've been a Tisdale fan throughout, and thought he'd get us out of trouble but how wrong could I be. The bloke's lost the plot. Spineless performance.'

"Terrible, never looked like winning or even drawing. Goodbye League 1 And the sad thing was Wycombe were rubbish too, they just wanted it more.'

"0-0 at half time and then Wycombe exploited the fact we had poor old Frear coupled with a very slow and unfit Fortune trying to defend against some very good attackers. We look like we are playing Barcelona most weeks. We are doomed.'

"Abject and pathetic tonight. Wycombe were ok but just wanted it more. Hayes looks clinical and Beavon works his socks off.'

"I thought Stuart Beavon was magnificent and a cut (and a half) above any of our forwards tonight. I believe whilst he was at Didcot we watched him but failed to take it further. Weymouth signed him and then onto Wycombe. Have I dreamt this version of events as it appears we have let another player slip under the radar.'

"Beavon was excellent tonight, he was hungry, powerful and direct, he is a cut above anything we have.'

"Well I was in line with the penalty box and 1 goal was defo offside, the other probably, and their 3rd Baldwin was being pulled down. Linesman generally had a poor 2nd half as the one offside he gave wasn't offside and there were about 5 instances of offsides he didn't give. The offside goal for them had 2 offsides in and he only gave the second... he was really poor standard.'
