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

The Opposition View - Fleetwood Town


Following yesterday's 1-0 win over Fleetwood Town, here are some views on the game from Cod Army manager Graham Alexander along with the post-match reaction of a few of their fans.

Alexander felt his side would have been worthy winners.

"I wouldn't have been happy with a stalemate," he said.

"I think we should have won the game today. I thought we created enough chances to win the game, and to lose it in the last couple of minutes is massively disappointing."

"At half time we just had to repeat the performance and take our chances but we didn't do that. We did it in little spells, we still created opportunities, but we didn't sustain the pressure."

"I don't think we deserved to lose, but I thought we did things that encouraged Wycombe and that was our downfall."

"We were undone by a corner... There were some good performances but I can't be pleased with getting beat 1-0."


The main topic of conversation among Fleetwood fans was their manager, with opinion divided on his tenure since replacing Micky Mellon in December.

The following extracts are taken from the Cod Army forum, the Independent Fleetwood Town Fans forum and twitter.

'Not looking good sacking Mellon now is it, nothing but regression under Alexander, get the clown out he's not up to it.'

'I was at Wycombe today and OK we lost, but we lost to a scrappy 89th minute goal, and we lost to a team who weren't that much better than us. We're still 9th in League 2, let's get things into perspective here! I, for one, would never have dreamt that we could make it into the League, but we're there and I'll be happy for us to finish this season mid-table, and then maybe kick on again next season. How anyone can be calling for Alexander to go at this stage is beyond me!'

'Alexander's appointment is proving to be a mistake and before anyone says they weren't his signings, if he was any good he would turn it round with the squad he has. Boring, slow and rubbish to watch, seen better forwards in the unibond. With the budget we have and money spent we should be in a far better league position and as for the performances this season, total garbage. Bad appointment Get rid, get Di Canio, he would sort this lot out'

'Are you seriously unhinged? Its taken nearly a decade for this to be a respected professional football club, so why would we want the hysterical Italian here turning the club into a comedy circus? I despair, I really do. A couple of setbacks and you're slashing your wrists.'

'The game had 0-0 written all over it. Looked like two mid-table teams. Not sure why our best defender in recent weeks was on bench either. We've had a go this season but it looks like we unfortunately lack the quality in midfield and up front to get out of the division this time.'

'Was always going to be a challenge in the league and so it's proving, and whilst expectations are probably too high, we do at the very least need to entertain, but regrettably the style of football has been disappointing so far.'

'This is our first season in league football and we are sitting in a healthy 9th place, that means we are better than 15 other teams, and for me anything more than survival is a bonus. Promotion isn't neccassery this season, if we dont get promoted it isnt a crying shame, whether we stay in this league for 2 seasons,or 10, the fact is we are playing league football, how can anyone grumble with that looking back at where the club came from?'

'Alexander's record is 5 wins 4 draws and now 5 losses. He needs to get the team back on track quick.'

'Our last two promotions have come in the second season in those respective leagues. Coming up into the Football League was always going to be a big learning curve for everyone involved with the club. We have secured enough points not to be relegated, we are learning all the time, we are still ahead of all our North West rivals in League Two and with continued investment and support there is plenty of reason for optimism in our second season in the football league...and, as another bonus, a play off place is still not out of reach!'


Next Game: Rochdale v Wycombe - Sat 9th March - 3.00pm
