The Opposition View - Southend United

The Opposition View - Southend United


Following yesterday's 1-0 defeat at Roots Hall, here's what Southend United boss Paul Sturrock and a few Shrimpers fans thought of the result, which gave the hosts their first win of the new League Two season.

'We made it difficult for ourselves and missed a couple of good chances to make it 2-0" Sturrock said afterwards.

'John Spicer should have scored and when he didn't you start to worry. With the results we've had there's probably a bit of confidence lacking and that showed in the second half. The tempo wasn't right but I was very pleased with the first half and especially how we started.'


The Southend fans were relieved their side had collected the three points but didn`t think much of the Chairboys display.

The following extracts are taken from the Southend United website ShrimpersZone.

We pummelled Wycombe in the first half, but after Spicer's miss, we seemed to look very leggy and we sat back too much second half. Was it just me that had to chuckle at the debut of the Wycombe right back today? Hapless doesn't even describe it. He kept falling over his own legs.

Wycombe barely threatened and we were unlucky not to score a couple more. I certainly think we can improve but if that`s how we compare to a team from League One then we aren`t in as bad a position as some think we are.

It was great to keep a clean sheet, although I thought Wycombe looked very poor for the majority of the game and we weren't particularly threatened.

Wycombe lacked mobility, penetration and ideas.

An OK performance against a confused Wycombe who looked particularly clueless in the first half; their half time changes meant second half was more even.

I was impressed with first half display which should have ended with Southend more than the one goal ahead against an ordinary looking Wycombe side.

We were lucky to hang on to the lead, as a poor Wycombe team pegged us back in the last 30 minutes, where we just lumped the ball in the air and gave it away.

We could've won 6 or 7-0 to be honest. One of those games where the longer it stays 1-0 the longer you worry the opposition are going to punish you for not taking your chances but fortunately Wycombe were completely pants. A better team would've punished us. They put us under some pressure towards the end but never really looked like scoring and I don't remember Belford having a save to make.

I thought we were really good first half, although I think it has to be said Wycombe were very poor.

JamesTheSuperBlue wrote
I`m not sure what game people who think Wycombe deserved a point were watching. They were a poor team, only registered one shot on target and never looked as dangerous going forward as Blues did.

Wycombe were **** poor and we will not come across such a poor defence all season I would hazard a guess.

A win is a win, but very hard to judge the team yesterday against **** poor opposition.

Wycombe are one of the favourites to get promotion and were dire, but a lot of that was down our work-rate both in defence and up top.

Talking of Wycombe, Dennis Oli, Jo Kuffour and Gareth Ainsworth? They should be scoring goals for fun but fortunately they couldn't really advance enough to test Belford. They looked much more dangerous once Ainsworth came on though.
