Pre Match Thoughts - Mike



Without Question We Are Our Own Worst Enemies.......


Another game has come and gone and once again we are bemoaning the same old issues that we seem unable to eradicate, Individual errors at crucial times are costing us points, this time it was right on Half Time yet again, Matt Penney is caught napping and stops playing and we are punished once more. Prior to that Macauley Bonne had missed an absolute gimme of a chance in the opening moments of the game, another huge clanger which in my opinion is every bit as bad as Penney's rick and was ultimately going to prove costly. George Edmundson had given us the lead when by all accounts we appeared to be well on top and in control but how many times is it now we have heard the same old thing ? It is getting a bit boring in truth.


Image


I have to say that for me the biggest error again falls at Paul Cook's feet, just what was that team selection all about ? I don't get it at all, we have signed some big name stars, or so I am led to believe, and yet Cook opted to play our Left back Hayden Coulsen as a right winger, I cannot for the life of me see the justification in doing so, I've read that maybe he felt the need to shore up our Right side to protect Woolfy at Right Back, that didn't work either then as the winning goal came down that side, I am convinced with our best Left Back actually playing at Left back and either Conor Chaplin, Bersant Celina or Kyle Edwards at Right Midfield we give ourselves a much better chance of winning the game, it seems to me we approached the game more afraid of them than they were of us.

The latter stages of the game saw us create chances but again Bonne, Harper and Edwards all spurned good chances to salvage a crucial point and a game that could and maybe should have been won was lost, some have said there was nothing between the Two teams, sadly I disagree, there is Thirteen points between us and with our inconsistencies clear for all to see we won't be making that up.

I made the point in the last preview that I was starting to see improvement in areas such as partnerships starting to form and that is the case, I also said this....
I am more than happy to see Cook take us forward and he has my full backing, so long as he stops the stupid decisions and substitutions etc.
The big issue for me is exactly that, he still does these odd things and I don't get why, I am sure he would baffle us all with logic and reason but I can't help feeling his limitations are hampering our season. The added quality may be there but the frustrations are growing ten fold. Some seem happy with the way things are progressing and good luck to them, personally I am up one minute and disillusioned the next.

The big games are coming thick and fast and next up is a Tuesday evening trip to Adams park and high flying Wycombe Wanderers, it's a chance to right some wrongs quickly and move on from the Plymouth disappointment, it is also a chance to get undone by another of the promotion hopefuls and in doing so fuel the fires of frustration even more.

Wycombe sit Third and should they win their game in hand would go top so this is going to be another tough encounter and with injuries once more mounting up we will be up against it. Our hosts have only been beaten twice this season, Sunderland and MK Dons coming out on top, One point of note is that aside for a goalless draw against Rotherham Wycombe haven't had any positive results against the teams flying high so just maybe they are in a slightly better league position than perhaps their ability warrants, time will tell.

I think this is a really tough game for Town and sadly I don't see any reward coming our way from it, we just lack a bit when up against the top sides in the division and I envisage this continuing here. Yes on our day we can create chances, usually we take them, Saturday we didn't and suffered for it, but it's defensively where we continue to look nothing more than average. Cook and Co. will need to rally the troops and get them firing, hopefully he has something up his sleeve, sadly it's probably Conor Chaplin in goal, Woolfy as the lone Striker and Kayden Jackson at Centre Back. Please ram my concerns down my Throat Cookie Boy or the season will be tailing off as Christmas approaches. Home win for me. COYB'S




The Opposition – Wycombe Wanderers



Image



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.


In the 2019–20 season, Wycombe finished 3rd in League One on points per game due to the impact of COVID-19. They won the play-off semi final 6–3 on aggregate, against Fleetwood Town, then, on 13 July beat Oxford United 2–1 in the final, at an empty Wembley Stadium, to ensure that Wycombe would play in the EFL Championship for the first time in the club's history.


Wycombe finished in 22nd place in the Championship last season and were relegated back to League 1.

Hmm, does Morsy miss this game due to picking up his fifth yellow card on Saturday? If so, i see his absence as the catalyst for back to back defeats. He brings that bit of steel to our midfield and i can just see Akinfenwa having a field day following his goal and assist on Saturday if Samy is missing.

Go on Ipswich, do what you're good at, defy all my logic and bring back 3 points, because sadly i see a draw at best.

Out of the current top 10 we have played 5 sides and got 2 points and 3 of those 5 games have been since our improved form (post Bolton) and led to 1 point. We certainly aren’t going to close the gap on the top 6 if that continues.
We really need a win tomorrow but unfortunately I can’t see it.
Wycombe 3 Town1.

In actual fact, it looks like he’s had 3 yellows in league games and 1 against west Han u23’s. 3 yellows in the last 3 games. He’s turning up his level of nastiness and I was also losing count of his yellows. He’s bound to get banned soon, but hopefully against weaker opposition.

voted for a draw, you just don't know with this team what's going to happen from one week to the next. Can't see us winning, can't see us losing so points shared it is. Guess that's something of a respectable result on paper, you know, something many would take before play even underway.

for anyone that's got their head in their as* or doesn't bother wirh league standings, the team is game by game losing distance with the promotion places. Every point is critical from here on, otherwise we're just looking at another mid-league campaign. Cook needs to get his team and formations right for tomorrows trip. Won't be so tough if we lose if the players pull together and really go for it. Not asking for superlative peformances just enough desire and motivation to really attempt it.

Im going for a hard fought away win, got to beat this lot, lived just outside Wycombe for a couple of years and never really like the place tbh.

Always remember a Scottish room mate of mine coming in from a night out in Wycombe, he was told to basically go back to where he came from (in no uncertain terms) by a person of a certain ethnic persuassion lol, he was not happy, looking back at it just have to laugh.

I've gone for us to win. Great preview, as usual. I think Wycombe are flattering to deceive at the moment. I expect, like us last season, they have had a great start but will start to unravel. I'm hoping the unraveling starts here.

Keep the faith Mike. It will all come good.

Love us to win but can't see our defence coping with Wycombe's aerial bombardment. Lose 3-1

Strong side KVY back and Burns starts Aluko on the bench but no JD, .

KVY in.
Chaplin dropped - looks like Celina number 10. Burns back in. Coulson at LB.

Ipswich Town: Walton; Vincent-Young, Edmundson, Nsiala, Coulson; Morsy, Evans; Burns, Celina, Edwards; Bonne

Subs: Hladky, Burgess, Fraser, Harper, Chaplin, Aluko, Pigott

Only one defender on the bench - Burgess.

Bit rough on Chaplin, but its up to Celina to prove himself.

Not an easy game for KVY to come back in. I suppose Burns can replace him at RB if he cant last 90. Cook looks like hes going for a win. Team looks a bit lightweight in areas, but better than Saturday.

I didn't notice Chaplin was absent must be illness or injury surely.

I wouldn't be surprised if Chaplin is rested not dropped, he had a back spasm last week so maybe Cook is being a bit cautious with him. I'm pleased yo see Coulsen at LB and Burns in the side, Two attacking wide men in Celina and Edwards can go either way but its how we should have lined up Saturday!! Interesting to see how KVY does but personally I much prefer Donacien.

Big test tonight, need to start taking points off these teams if we want to be involved at the sharp end of the season so let's hope we defend better tonight, a hard fought 1-0 win will do!

Would like to see Pigott get some decent game time too - after netting 20 odd goals for an average Wimbledon side last season he hasn't really had a fair go so far this term

If Chaplin has been dropped for Celina that would be wrong.

Looking forward to tonight's game. First time felt like doing something for last 10 days or so, Caught COVID 19 and it hit me for six.. Turned the corner now hopefully

So come on you Blues, like something to cheer about
