'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View - Barnet


Following yesterday's goalless draw at home to Barnet, here are some views on the game from the Bees' player-coach Edgar Davids and a few of their fans.

Davids was unhappy at the way his team faded in the second-half.

"In the first half we started slowly but then we had a spell where we were backing them in a corner," he said.

"We played some good football, created triangles and that`s what we have practiced."

"In the second half I didn`t recognised the team. We played long balls all the time and we went a couple of steps back."

"The guys need to be confident but the most important thing is that we kept a clean sheet again."

"We play as a team and sometimes it works well and sometimes it doesn`t but the clean sheet is important and we now have to work on the football."


The Barnet fans were reasonably pleased with another clean sheet and a point away from home.

The following extracts are taken from The Beehive and The Football Forum.

'Unfortunately, we offered absolutely nothing upfront. Oster had a long range effort on target but not sure whether bull had another save to make. To conclude - we need a striker.'

'First half we completely outplayed Wycombe with nothing to show for it. Second half the passing game disappeared and Wycombe were the better side, had 3-4 chances that they could easily have scored and came close to being awarded a pen at the end. Couldn't see our attacks that well but a Wycombe fan tells me one of the chances from a corner was cleared off the line.'

'Not much up front from either side, however we put in a good away performance which frustrated Wycombe. This was definitely the sort of match we'd have lost pre-Davids. With more up front we could have won - but then Wycombe could say the same thing. Overall a good point, second successive clean sheet, still a long way to go but things are looking much better.'

'Slow start to the first half but then we really got into it. Some of the one touch passing and movement was some of the best I've seen from a Barnet side. Not sure what happened at half time but we came out deflated and couldn't reproduce anything like our first half performance. We absorbed more and more pressure as the half went on. By injury time we were being bombarded 3 or 4 times a minute and were lucky not to concede.'

'Two clean sheets in a row is not to be sniffed at. It's moving in the right direction . How many goal kicks did their keeper slice into touch tonight!?'

'Good result all things considered. The defence were excellent and Stack was good in goal. However, I can't help thinking Wycombe were there for the taking tonight. They were complete sh*te, if we had gone for it a bit more we might be two points better off tonight.'


Mikel wrote:
'Wycombe weren't bad but we've found a way to frustrate teams and dominate possession without doing much with it.'

'Have to see that as a point gained. When we have Holmes, John, Kamara and Kabba fit, it will give us a cutting edge.'

'Overall I came away feeling quite disappointed. Let's be honest, it was a pretty dismal second half performance although we defended well. Surely these are the sort of games that we must be winning in order to make up the deficit at the bottom. What left me rather dismayed was the way Wycombe made a couple of subs which clearly freshened things up for them and all of a sudden they started looking really threatening. Yet we just sat back and left things as they were. It could have been costly had they been a bit more clinical in front of goal. At least they created chances, which is more than can be said for us.'


Doyley wrote:
'With Holmes instead of Edgar, and John or Kabba upfront in place of Hyde, we would have won last night. The passing is good to watch, just need the end product, keep the faith!'

'It was ironic to hear the players getting stick for not going all out for the three points in the closing minutes. A few weeks ago we would have cheered an away point to the rafters.'
