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

The Opposition View - York City

Following yesterday's goalless draw at York City, here are some thoughts on the game from the Minstermen's manager Nigel Worthington and a few of their fans.

Worthington felt Wycombe came for a draw and were fortunate that his side didn't convert their performance into a victory.

"We need to be ruthless in front of goal and that's something we`ll continue to work on," said the York boss.

"It was the same story once again - we've not taken chances."

"We're creating chances and there is good energy from the team, we've just got to keep the belief and then the goals will come."

"I couldn't fault the performance as there was a lot of energy and some good stuff. The decision making could be better but that's all part of our education."

"The positives are that we are still unbeaten and we've kept a clean sheet. If we keep adding to that and get a win, that will be good."

'Teams are now coming here and if they go away with a point they are delighted. That's what last year has brought. We've got to be ready for that situation and go and force getting the three points."

Yesterday's result took York's unbeaten run to a club record 22 league games, but with five draws in a row this season, their fans are getting twitchy... and they weren't impressed with us.

The following extracts are taken from Red & and the York Press.

"I'm getting a bit brassed off with this now. Yes it was a hard working performance. Yes we didn't concede. Yes we are unbeaten since January in the league. Yes we might be a teensy weensy bit off being a good L2 side. But there is something wrong."

"Awful game to watch. From the kick off we were just slow and unfortunately Wycombe got what they came for and should have won it. They were embarrassing considering the decentish form they are in. Time wasted from minute one and the ref let them get away with it."

Clinton wrote:
"Boring. Both teams deserved to lose. A master class in ineptitude."

"Wycombe were so very poor, but in a sense they 'won' the game because they wanted a draw and got one. I don't know what we were playing for."

PositiveFootball wrote:
"Wycombe came for the point and continually wasted time. That combined with a pitch that had too much sand on it and a blustery wind, made it a very poor spectacle. On the positive side we are one of four teams unbeaten in this league."

"One of the most boring matches I have ever witnessed."

dadster wrote:
"It was a poor game. Despite our territorial advantage Wycombe had the best two chances and should have scored, although credit to Ingham for his saves."

wilsontown wrote:
"It was indeed a poor game, not helped by Wycombe's time wasting and generally negative tactics."

Referee wrote:
"Toothless & lacking any real creativity. Not much more to say really! Credit to Ingham for keeping them out when our defence left him exposed on three occasions."

"Awful game of beach soccer. Nigel tried to explain why it was sanded but why on earth not wait to do it until after today's game."

"Wycombe time wasting shite. Us awful finishing. Ball 50% of the time up in the air on a windy day? Rubbish."

ycfc84 wrote:
"Neither side deserved to win. Wycombe were very poor, created barely anything at all bar a couple of chances that our defence handed them."

Mr Chips wrote:
"Against a team who played anti-football timewasting hoofball for much of the game, we created a number of chances but nothing which really stretched their keeper."

Uncle Peter wrote:
"To be honest, Wycombe had the three clearest chances but, other than that, created b*gger all. Ours were all half chances and their keeper had a leisurely afternoon of it. Their time wasting reminded me of a Westley-managed side."

T.R.M1974 wrote:
"What a crap game, Wycombe reminded me of Stevenage a few years ago."

Old-Head wrote:
"Wycombe seemed hell bent on wasting time right from the start, they came to Bootham Crescent intent on not getting beat, yet they squandered the two best chances created all afternoon. City just didn't have the know-how to break Wycombe down. The final result was about right, as neither team possessed enough quality to go on and win the game."

JSmith083 wrote:
"I didn't get a chance to hear the post match interviews. My guess is that Nigel said "they were effing timewasting all effing game" and the Wycombe fellow came out with something like "my lads had hearts of lions" and "we deserved more."
