The Opposition View - York City

The Opposition View - York City



In the wake of Saturday's deserved 2-0 defeat at play-off hunting York City, here are some views from their manager Nigel Worthington and a few of their supporters.

Worthington was impressed with the Minstermen's performance and lavished praise on his side.

''That first forty-five minutes today was probably as good as I've seen'' said Worthington.

''The movement, the energy, the invention within the team was fantastic. We would love to do that for the course of 90 minutes but you know at some stage the opposition`s going to try and stop you or hold you in some way'' he continued.

''In the second half there was a stiff breeze in our face but we kept a big clean sheet, we stayed in control, we kept Wycombe at bay and it`s a big three points''.


The York City supporters knew that they deserved the win and revelled in their team`s impressive showing.

The following extracts are taken from the Red and Blue Forum.

Shadow45 said: ''First of Big Nige's (Nigel Worthington's) goals has been reached and now the play offs are within our grasp after a remarkable few months. We're the form team within our division and on a charge, dare we begin to dream? We have a potent attack, a solid midfield and seemingly unbreachable defence, what a turn around in results and performances''.

down south said: ''I've got no idea why Lowe's goal was disallowed unless there was an off the ball incident. Keeper probably should have saved Carson's shot but who cares! Very one sided game, they've had a couple of corners which Pope has come and gathered cleanly and one shot that went well over the bar''.

YC301995 said: ''Best first half display by us in quite a while... Could/should have had 4 in the first half. Would have been a travesty if they'd got to half time only one down. Second half was a bit of a mess in the wind, but we did what we had to do. Hayhurst should have scored, but their keeper made a decent save. They were thoroughly useless with a couple of comedy defenders thrown in for good measure''.

Barry Not Swallow said: ''A superb first 20 minutes. Fast & inventive play. Settled down a bit but why on earth was Lowe's brilliant header from a corner disallowed? The ref was useless. Lowe and a few City players were still celebrating the 'goal' as Wycombe attacked. Ridiculous. Good shot from Carson right on half time made it a nice half time break but for me the keeper was at fault. So what? Second half we did our usual and let the opposition dictate play. No nonsense defending but they missed a golden chance near the end first hitting the post when through and then putting the rebound wide''.

Uncle Peter said: ''Excellent first half, looked very comfortable second half, Wycombe could play all week and still not score - they're in real trouble but at least try to play football. Not sure why Lowe's bullet header was disallowed, presume pushing or climbing but it nearly burst the net. Three comfortable points and we didn't even get into top gear''.

Kingdong said: ''According to radio York and BP Lowe's goal was chalked off because of Coulson impeding their goalkeeper''.

Clausewitz said: ''Easy really. Wycombe had next to nothing going forward''.

Clinton said: ''I think the wind was blowing towards the Longhurst which explains the differing halves. We did all we had to do second half and there was only the one chance from them which looked a certain goal which luckily they fluffed. Overall a very impressive, confident performance''.

Ycfc84 said: ''Played very well in the first half to win the game, and our solid defence held firm after half time. Great credit to Davies for a superb goal saving challenge right on half time, possibly a match winning challenge. He diverted a low cross over the bar away from an onrushing Wycombe player from just a few yards out, when it would have been easy to put through his own net. Wycombe managed to mess up the corner, passing straight to one of our players, we broke quickly and Carson made it 2-0''.

Mr. Chips said: ''Fantastic first 45. Fully deserved two nil at half time. Could/should have been more. Didn't see a lot wrong with Lowe's 'goal'. Stonewall pen I thought and their keeper should have done better with Carson's. Solid professional second half, without getting out of second gear. We'll tactfully ignore their post hit/glaring miss at the end of the second half''.
