The Opposition View - Chesterfield
In the wake of yesterday's atrocious 4-0 defeat at Chesterfield, here are some views on the game from the Spireites' assistant manager Tommy Wright and a few of their fans.
"To be fair to Wycombe I thought they started brighter," said Wright.
"They looked better than us for the first fifteen minutes. We looked a little bit nervy, a little bit edgy, which is understandable, but once we got the goal, and the second goal just after half-time, I thought we were excellent."
"We passed the ball, we moved it well and we caused Wycombe all sorts of problems."
"I think the pressure was off and sometimes it's a lot easier to play, but you still have to give credit to the players. They went out and performed and Wycombe have been on a good run. And to be fair, it was four but it could have been a lot more in the end."
"We're not hiding the fact that we're going to get relegated. We're totally disappointed with that, but we have to end the season on a high note."
"It's frustrating for the fans but I think they do understand. They know there's been mistakes made this season - we're not getting away from that...I'm not papering over things here, you've got to look at the facts, we're disappointed with what's happened this season and we'll take responsibility for that. We've made mistakes, but we've made a lot of good decisions at this club in the last two years as well."
The Chesterfield fans were grateful that we made them look like Brazil.

"We looked a good side today regardless of the opposition. I thought we won the midfield battle for the first time this season.'

"Nothing to lose, no pressure, and we play like that. If only they had told us we were relegated at the start of the season.'
"Not only was the scoreline great, the performance was brilliant. The three central midfielders were a class above!! Still going down but the fans made the atmosphere great again! Reminded me of last year and if we get that regularly again next season, bring it on!'

"What I saw today was the makings of a top-three league two side. Randall and Moussa were brilliant. If they keep fit and we can keep Moussa, on today's evidence we would boss league two next season.'
"Wasn't looking forward to today with much enthusiasm but credit to the team, they were superb and should have had 6 or 7.'
"You've all missed the one obvious factor in our glorious victory today - the opposition were piss poor.'
"If Wycombe had scored first it might well have been a different story. In recent games we have performed ok until we go behind, and then just fall apart.'
"Wycombe seemed to turn up without a strike force, but other than that we totally earned our win. I know it doesn't mean much in survival terms, but today was a treat, and one that we deserved.'

"Wycombe are terrible, they reminded me of us.'
"It was like watching ourselves play ourselves. They totally gave up the fight and our midfield waltzed through theirs as though it wasn't there (remind you of anybody?) They gave up and had no heart, they didn't close us down and will be relegated alongside us. Very few teams (if any) are going to be that poor, dispirited and uninterested in league two. They accepted defeat at 2-0 against the worst side in the league. I'd be furious with them if I was their manager. Only teams with heart stay up and that's why we're going down and so will Wycombe'
"Was it a practice match?'
