The Opposition View - Cheltenham Town

The Opposition View - Cheltenham Town


Following yesterday`s 1-1 draw at Cheltenham, here are some views on the game from the Robins` manager Mark Yates and a few of their fans.

"Once we got one, we should be winning the game, but unfortunately we haven't," said Yates.

"We were probably having our purple patch when they scored the penalty so it's disappointing. The lads have worked really hard, it's bumpy and bobbly out there and it wasn't pretty but the effort was there."

"Great goal. We've been talking about getting balls in the box and it was a good finish from Byron."

"There were plenty of good things, I'm just disappointed we haven't seen the game out."

Asked if he agreed with the decision to award Wycombe a penalty, Yates replied: "My lads are adamant that Troy got manhandled before the penalty. When the ball was looped over his head, he thought he was pushed and he's really angry about that."


The Cheltenham fans concentrated their venom on the referee.

The following extracts are taken from the Robins Nest.

"We played with a bit more confidence albeit against a very poor side and a referee who had a grudge against us from the first minute. We played well, but how did Cureton miss that header...shocking."

"We did ok, but don't want Cureton to play anymore, sick of him missing these chances.'

"At last we have some wide players. Why did it take six months? Oh yes, our tactical genius."

"Some strange decisions from the little **** in yellow tonight. For me player reactions tell a lot, when Wycombe aren't appealing then it`s probably fair to assume its not a free kick!"

'Vincent got taken out in the first half on the edge of the box...referee waved play on, game is corrupt if you look through a magnifying glass.'

'Vincent dived once tbf, if that's when you're thinking of. He went down very late.'

'One of Troy or Elliot were pushed to the floor just before the penalty and it wasn't given. That said, we had our chances to score and they weren't taken *cough' Cureton.'


Uppy wrote:
"They were terrible. I'd be concerned if I was a Wycombe fan. They really didn't show anything and looked really nervy at the back. Ref was a clown, as per usual. He got it right for the penalty, though."

'I didn't think we played that well tbh. Being lucky to get a draw against a team near the bottom of the table can't be classed as a good performance. Too much hoofball again and a lack of movement meaning we can't get any sort of passing moves going. Another shocking first half. Improved in the second, but overall Wycombe shaded it on chances. Our problem is we don't score enough goals. If you're only managing 1 goal every game you're not going to win many games.'

'That has been our issue all season. Imagine how many points we'd have if we perhaps managed to scored more than one goal.'
