Pre Match Thoughts - Mike


Some You Get, Some You Don't.....


Saturday's enjoyable home draw with Blackpool was a tale of Two decisions which ultimately had as massive effect on the result and unfortunately in my opinion, and a lot of others too we were on the receiving end of Two bad calls, Blackpool's penalty was a clear and blatant piece of diving by the Striker which cheated the officials while at the other end for me TV evidence seems to back up my original thoughts that Kayden Jackson's effort was an inch or Two over the line and should really have seen us go ahead but I guess as someone said, sometimes they go for you and sometimes they go against you, it's just a shame that in a key game we get penalised incorrectly not once but twice !

Going back to the penalty and the main talking point seems to have been as to why the skipper felt the need to dive in with his leg when it seemed the attacker was being forced virtually out of play, I think this is one of those occasions where instinct just takes over, surely as a defender you do what should come naturally and try with everything you have to block that cross, Chambo for me was a on a loser either way because had he not closed it down and the ball goes into our box he would without question have been chastised by some, in the split second he had to make that call I still feel he did the right thing, as a result he gets penalised for doing absolutely nothing wrong, there was no contact, even more bizarrely the Linesman supposedly told the ref there was no contact and yet the referee still gives it, I think we were hard done by on this occasion for sure.

The game itself was good to watch, end to end, Two decent teams at least trying to play some Football for a fair part of the game, I thought we had the lions share of the match, certainly the opening Twenty minutes and the majority of the second half saw Town in the ascendancy but we were up against a resolute team who are in good form right now and there is no divine right for us to be winning this or any other game. Many felt we would be rusty and off the pace due to our period of inaction but that never materialised as we looked the hungrier and fitter of the two sides from the first whistle and never seemed to tire which was a pleasing thing. All in all I think most went away disappointed with the end result but not unhappy at the teams performance which is exactly how I felt leaving the stadium.


This One's Massive.......


Tuesday night's game at home to league leaders Wycombe Wanderers now takes on even more importance following their last gasp win at the weekend thanks to a penalty in the dying seconds of their game at home to Doncaster Rovers which saw them opening up a Five point lead on ourselves, albeit with us having those Two games in hand. This game is pivotal as a win closes it down to two points which is very manageable with the extra two games to play but defeat would see that gap open up to Eight points which would for the first time have things "out of our hands" where top spot is concerned and while a negative result would not be terminal it would start the jitters in some of us which I get, on the other hand victory would not win us anything either at this stage of the season but it would certainly have us back in pole position.

I am still struggling to see where Wycombe have come from this season and part of me still expects them to be engulfed by the chasing pack as the season unfolds, however you have to take your hat off to them at this stage, unfancied back in August they are taking the season by storm at the moment and have won their last Four games without conceding a single goal, Three One Nil wins in that run is similar to many of our victories in that they just seem to get the job done without steamrolling teams.

One man who has caught my eye this season is Joe Jacobsen who certainly seems to be a bit of a talisman for Wycombe, he already has Six goals to his name which for a defender is pretty good going so early in the campaign, he takes a mean free kick and corner too and any dead ball situations around our box will be very dangerous with him around. Another name that we all know is that of the beast Adebayo Akinfenwa who seems to have been around for decades, if there is a bigger player out there I haven't seen him, the man is massive and not just in height, quite how he was pushed over in the box for the winning penalty on Saturday is anyone's guess as he looks immovable, these days he is by and large used as a sub coming off the bench for the final part of the game but it works well and he is another who could cause our defence problems as his Six goals and Four assists will testify.

I am really looking forward to this one and we need to start as we did against Blackpool, get out of the blocks quickly and take the game to them from the off, get the crowd which is bound to be decent behind the boys and make it a cauldron of noise for them to play in, if we can get an early goal again it will do wonders for us as long as there are no silly decisions going against us again we can then build on it. Hopefully we will have James Norwood back and available as this 4-3-3 system which sees the lone striker often isolated just doesn't see us at our best and makes it harder to create chances. I think this will obviously be tough and it would not surprise me if it finishes honours even again but I am ever hopeful of Town nicking it by the odd goal. COYB'S.



The Opposition – Wycombe Wanderers

The exact details of the formation of Wycombe Wanderers F.C. have largely been lost to history. A group of young furniture trade workers started a team to play matches in 1884. This team was called North Town Wanderers.

In 1887, a meeting held at the Steam Engine public house in Station Road, High Wycombe saw the formation of Wycombe Wanderers F.C. It is highly likely the club was named Wanderers after the famous Wanderers, winners of the first F.A. Cup in 1872. The club played friendly matches between 1887 and 1896. It first entered the F.A. Amateur Cup in 1894 and the F.A. Cup in 1895. In 1895 the club moved to Loakes Park, which would become its home for the next 95 years. In 1896 the club joined the Southern League and competed in the Second Division until 1908.

In the summer of 1908 the club declined the invitation to retain their membership of the Southern League. The club decided to pursue amateur instead of professional football and joined the Great Western Suburban League and remained there until the outbreak of the First World War. After the hostilities had ended the club joined the Spartan League in 1919 and were Champions in successive years. In March 1921 the club's application to join the Isthmian League was accepted.

The club remained a member of the Isthmian League until 1985, when they finally accepted promotion to the Alliance Premier League. For over sixty years the Wanderers sought to be the greatest amateur club in the country. One of the club's greatest achievements came in April 1931 when it won the F.A. Amateur Cup. The Wanderers beat Hayes 1–0 in the final at Highbury, home of Arsenal. The club also reached the first round proper of the F.A. Cup for the first time in November 1932, losing to Gillingham in a replay at Loakes Park.

The club remained active during the Second World War, competing in the Great Western Combination, which was won in 1945. In 1947 Frank Adams, who had captained the club to its double Championship victories in the Spartan League and made 331 appearances for the Wanderers, scoring 104 goals, made arguably his greatest contribution when he gave Loakes Park to the club. It provided the basis for a period of unprecedented success in 1950s.

The club appointed Sid Cann as coach in 1952 and he led the Wanderers to their first Isthmian League title in 1956. The title was successfully defended the following season, and the club also reached Wembley for the first time in their history. They were beaten 3–1 by Bishop Auckland in the final of the F.A. Amateur Cup in April 1957. Their North-East rivals were something of a nemesis having also beaten the Chairboys at the semi-final stage in both 1950 and 1955. The second round proper of the F.A. Cup was reached in December 1959 when the club was defeated 5–1 by Watford at Vicarage Road. The stars of the team included winger Len Worley and striker Paul Bates.

Cann left the club to join Norwich City in 1961 and the club's fortunes took something of a downturn during the 1960s. That changed in December 1968 when Brian Lee was appointed as the club's first conventional manager. He changed several aspects of the club including team selection, which up to that point had been chosen by committee. He led the Wanderers to a third Isthmian League title in 1971 and it was again defended successfully in 1972. The club suffered yet more F.A. Amateur Cup disappointment at the semi-final stage, losing 2–1 to Hendon at Griffin Park, Brentford.

A fifth Isthmian League title was won in 1974 and the following season it was defended yet again, this time by the narrowest of margins, a superior goal difference of 0–1 to Enfield. In the same season the club created history by reaching the third round proper of the F.A. Cup for the first time, losing 1–0 to First Division Middlesbrough in a replay at Ayresome Park having drawn 0–0 at Loakes Park.

Lee retired as manager in 1976 and again the Wanderers suffered a decline. A significant factor was the abolition of amateur football by the F.A. in 1974 which left the club without a sense of purpose. The Wanderers rejected the invitation to join the Alliance Premier League on its formation in 1979 and again in 1981 with concern over the increased travelling costs. The club reached the semi-finals of the F.A. Trophy for the first time in 1982 but lost out to Altrincham. A seventh Isthmian League title was won in 1983 but promotion to the Alliance Premier League was again turned down.

As a consequence crowds at Loakes Park dropped to record lows and the club decided to accept promotion to the Gola League in 1985, having finished third in the Isthmian League Premier Division. The club's first season in a national league ended in disappointment, with the Wanderers relegated on goal difference. They soon returned after romping to an eighth Isthmian League title in 1987 after a battle with Yeovil Town. The club consolidated their place in the newly named GM Vauxhall Conference and under manager Jim Kelman they finished in fourth place in 1989. The following season would be the club's last at their Loakes Park home. It was a disappointing season on the field with Kelman being asked to resign following an ignominious defeat to the Metropolitan Police in the F.A. Trophy.

The club appointed Martin O'Neill as his successor and he went on to lead the Wanderers to unprecedented success. The club moved to its new Adams Park home in 1990, and in May 1991, the Blues defeated Kidderminster Harriers 2–1 in the final of the F.A. Trophy in front of a then-record crowd. The club narrowly missed out on promotion to the Football League the following season, finishing level on 94 points with Colchester United, but placing second in the league on goal difference.

The club recovered to become only the third in history to do the Non-League double. The Wanderers claimed the Football Conference title before winning the F.A. Trophy again, beating Runcorn 4–1 in the final at Wembley in May 1993. O'Neill rejected the chance to manage Nottingham Forest that summer, remaining to lead the club to fourth in the Third Division to qualify for the play-offs in their inaugural season in the Football League. They beat Carlisle United in the two-legged semi-final, and beat Preston North End 4–2 in the final at Wembley in May 1994 to secure their second consecutive promotion.

In their first season in the Second Division, the club finished in sixth place in the table, but due to league re-organisation the club missed out on a play-off place. O'Neill left the club to become manager of Norwich City in June 1995. Former Crystal Palace manager Alan Smith was appointed as his successor but was sacked in September 1996. John Gregory took over and steered the club to safety on the penultimate weekend of the 1996/97 season. He left to manage Aston Villa in February 1998 and youth team boss Neil Smillie was given the job.

Smillie was sacked in January 1999 with the team looking destined for relegation. Lawrie Sanchez was given the task of keeping the club in the Second Division and safety was secured on the final day of the season. As a result of this result, the club acquired a new mascot, in the form of the Wycombe Comanche. In 2000–01, the club reached the semi-finals of the F.A. Cup, beating First Division sides Grimsby Town, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wimbledon and a quarter-final win over Premier League Leicester City. The semi-final at Villa Park saw Liverpool claim a 2–1 victory.

The following season, results tailed off and the season after that was one of struggle. Sanchez was eventually sacked in September 2003 and his successor Tony Adams failed to save the club from only its second ever relegation. At the time the Wanderers were English football's last members' club but at an extraordinary general meeting in July 2004 the members voted by a narrow margin to restructure the club as a Public Limited Company. Chairman Ivor Beeks, Director Brian Kane and sponsor Steve Hayes all subsequently invested in the club, with an approximate total value of £750,000.

Adams remained in the manager's job for just a year, resigning in November 2004, and John Gorman was appointed as his successor. His tenure saw a record of 21 league games unbeaten at the start of the 2005–06 season. A double tragedy hit the club with midfielder Mark Philo killed in a road accident in January 2006 and Gorman's wife Myra dying of cancer in March. Subsequently the team's form slipped and they fell from top spot to eventually finish in sixth place. Cheltenham Town won the two-legged play-off semi-final 2–1 and Gorman was sacked in May 2006.

Paul Lambert was appointed manager in June 2006, and took the club to the semi-finals of the League Cup. Having never passed the second round, the club defeated Fulham away, and then knocked out the then Premier League side Charlton Athletic in the quarter-finals before beaten beaten by Chelsea in the Semi-final. The side's league form subsequently suffered and a number of changes were made in the summer of 2007. The team reached the League Two play-offs in 2008 but were beaten 2–1 on aggregate by Stockport County. Lambert resigned shortly afterwards.

Peter Taylor was appointed as his successor in May 2008 and he led the side to another lengthy unbeaten start which lasted 18 games. The side was nine points clear at the top at Christmas but results soon tailed off and the team eventually finished in the last automatic promotion place, ahead of Bury by virtue of a superior goal difference of just one. The summer of 2009 saw Steve Hayes become the first sole owner of the club, converting £3m of loans into equity. He also announced his intention to move the club into a community stadium based on the site of the Wycombe Air Park.

Taylor was sacked in October 2009 after a poor start to the season, and was replaced by Gary Waddock who was unable to save the club from relegation back to League Two. Waddock did however guide the Wanderers straight back to League One at the first attempt. He led the side to a third-place finish, and achieved a points total of 80, the highest the club had recorded since its promotion to the Football League. In July 2011, after much argument and debate, Wycombe District Council announced that work on the community stadium proposed at Wycombe Air Park would stop.

Wycombe were relegated back to League Two on 28 April 2012, after a 4–3 home defeat to Notts County.

On 30 June 2012, the Wycombe Wanderers Supporters' Trust formally took over the club. This financial stabilisation ended a transfer embargo. Gary Waddock took advantage of this immediately and signed several new players for the 2012–13 season. The season also included their 125th anniversary, and the shirt design was an adaptation of their first-ever kit, in Oxford and Cambridge Blue halves (instead of quarters).

Wycombe kicked off their new season in League Two with a strong start, however, they went through a bad period soon after and for a while sat just above the relegation zone in League Two. On 22 September 2012, after Wycombe's third successive defeat, Waddock was sacked as manager with immediate effect.

Former club captain, Gareth Ainsworth was immediately named as the caretaker manager in Waddock's absence. Just over a month later, on 8 November 2012, Ainsworth was named as Wycombe's permanent manager. He signed a contract, lasting for the rest of the season. Ainsworth revitalised the squad and the club as a whole, and steered Wycombe safely away from the relegation threat. Wycombe eventually ended the season in 15th place, nine points clear of relegation. At the end of the season, Wycombe's player-manager Gareth Ainsworth announced his retirement from professional football (after an 18-year career), although he signed a new two-year contract as Wycombe manager.

Wycombe finished the 2013/14 season in 22nd place, above Bristol on goal difference, to remain in the Football League.

Following the near-relegation of the previous season, Gareth Ainsworth released seven players from the club, the 2014–15 season saw the club spend the majority of the season in the automatic promotion places. However, two costly home defeats to Morecambe and local rivals Oxford United led to a finishing position of 4th, setting up a play-off fixture against Plymouth Argyle which Wycombe won. The play-off final took place on 23 May against Southend and the scores were tied 1-1 after extra time. Southend won the shoot out 7–6.

In the 2017–18 season, Exeter and Notts County both losing respectively combined with Wycombe winning their penultimate game of the season ensured promotion to EFL League One, joining Luton Town and EFL League Two champions Accrington Stanley.

I hadn't really looked at their results until the preview. But they don't look like big scorers, judging by those results. Maybe a 0-0 or 1-1 draw.

Agree with you there. Not big scorers, but on their travels, have managed to take points off a couple of decent teams who have certainly already given us a good game.

For me, if Norwood is fit, i think we can end their mini unbeaten run. If we end up with the lone striker, a goalless draw looks a fair bet, as they certainly do not concede many either.

Although not likely to be season-defining, avoiding defeat is the key here. I don't want to see an 8 point gap, regardless of the fact we have 2 games in hand.

Had to view opposition scores also. Realized they were #1 position but wanted to see what to better expect from this visit. Voted for a home win, after all it's paramount we get a win from this given their lead over us despite we got games in hand. Eradicate any one up front horseshit and attack them from the off. Onus is on ourselves to find goals and ensure three points and starting with a negative formation will do no-one here any favors. This should be a real measure of what to expect in the games ahead. Won't be easy for sure but with the right start and focus see no reason why the team can't do it.

I’ve gone for a win because we need it.( heart talking)... but in my head I’m thinking more likely a draw. These are a big old lump of side and we don’t tend to fair too well against bullies in This division plus they seem to have goals in them from various positions in the side. So we need to be well and truly on our metal tomorrow night.

It’s only November, but a lot riding on this game.

It’s not just Wycombe can open up a big lead, but if we drop points then the chasing pack close in and we become part of the pack. In some ways, a team like Wycombe can keep that top spot for the next couple of months as long as we keep some distance to third place. See how they deal with the pressure and it could well be this lot run out of steam after Christmas. Still - we need those three points tonight. 4 points from this game and the Blackpool game would be decent. Really looking forward to this one and there surely must be a bit of a buzz around PR tonight.

I think we’ll nick it 1-0.

Yep, I'm buzzing right now too. It's the first genuinely big game of the season really.

As for Wycombe, all it takes is a month out for the big fella and they will drop back into the pack. I don't think any of the League 1 teams have two highly rated strikers, we all try to get by with 1, so everyone will have periods when the no 1 is injured.

I hope I’m wrong, but I think we may get beat. Even with Norwood and KVY starting, it’ll be a tough match...and both players will be a bit rusty I suspect.

I have a feeling these two might be on the bench. Donacien might have done enough to mean KVY doesn’t need to be rushed back. If Norwood is fit enough to start tonight, I would have thought he would have been on the bench on Saturday.

Haven’t a clue the starting line up or the formation ( 4-4-2, 5-3-2, 4-4-3, whatever). Lambo’s a tease. I have a feeling Judge might start in place of Edwards/ Rowe.

Yes that is a good call. Experience to deal with a big experienced striker.

Isn’t Chambo experienced enough? I think Woolfy is the strongest out of those three CB’s, but, yes, I’d put a experienced CB on him if he’s playing. I’d put Chambo against him.... Chambo would do him for pace.Or maybe Lambo might even spring a surprise and put Toto against him. That would be fun.

I can’t help feel there’s too much made of Akinfenwa... he’s a beast, but can he run for 90 mins, can he beat defenders, can he lift his 37 year old 16 stone body of the ground to outjump anyone? Is this part of Wycombes strategy - get other teams worried about how you deal with Akinfenwa and not about the rest of the team?

If we’ve got a good enough squad then they should be worried about us.

Would be good to see KVY back in a 5-3-2 with Garbett again as we look good with them 2 raiding forward but then he will probably start with one up top again.

Come on Town WTF are Wycombe ?

Lookied at the outfield players and noticing Norwoods there and Downes is missing and three CB’s - but only just noticed Holy’s
back in goal.
