Wycombe A

Didn’t watch last night as was busy but sounds like a great win

Very happy for Thomason though, took his goal well. Quickly becoming one of my favourite players in this team. Has come on leaps and bounds and it’s a good story of him coming from non league and proving himself. He must have a steely determination to improve as much as possible and make the most of his career.

Didnt think Sheehan was up to it last season but he’s been very good so far this year. 
 

How did JDC do at LWB?

Wycombe have identified and are banning someone who threw an object onto the pitch. Didn't hear of anything last night.

Baxter picked up something in his goal area in the last few mins. It looked like he briefly pointed it out to the ref, so perhaps it was that.

Well my take last night was bloody brilliant for a team built to over come Wycombe’s physicality, some in strange positions and whilst the team didn’t have the same fluidity as normal they more than overcame Wycombe. Ok second half we struggled a bit but let’s face it, conceding to an absolute wonder strike so early after the break must have upset all the plans and it certainly energised Wycombe who looked a different team so we have to give them credit for that.

you can only play as well as the other team let’s you and Wycombe seemed to go up a gear after the goal, faster, better movement and really good passing so it’s no surprise we looked disjointed but we managed to hold on and in fact I thought we’d weathered the storm just before they equalised. For us to score again so soon after then set them back and we finished the stronger. I though Cameron used all his experience for the penalty, got the wrong side of the defender and knew just when to slow his stride to ensure he was taken out and I think perhaps the ref knew that as well and why he didn’t give a red card. All in all a cracking win and let’s get another on Saturday but hopefully with a more normal looking team?

Saw the first 85 mins and then my feed went - so missed all the excitement.

wouls have taken 3 points before the game however it came.

listened to their commentary and they certainly seemed to be poor in comparison to normal in the first half.

they were never going to be that bad in the second half and this is where you have got to pounce on being so in control.

2-0 is a very dodgy score line in sport

we didn’t look at it at all for 35 mins of second half and after he made the subs you really did think what the……

but the character shown to go again and against a team who haven’t lost at home since august and at a notoriously bad ground for us to go has only got to be applauded.

next stop the big smoke.

I thought that first half from Victor was one of his best 45 mins for the club.

Charles' performance was one of his worst.

They both got 6 out of 10 from Marc Iles.  Which in real terms is 5 each as every score is increased if we win.  When he got subbed he was on a 5 but Toal's header increased him to a 6 while he was on the bench 😀

I can be very negative towards Mr Evatt at times but credit where it’s due the team showed some good fight after they equalised

Me too - but yesterday Evatt came through on two counts - tactically for his unbelievable selection moving players around all over the shop and then the late response from the team.

I can't emphasise enough how important it was for us fans to see a spirited fightback like that.

I know I wasn't alone in fearing the worst after Wycombe got back into it - and that fear was justified given the number of times we've been clinging on against the tide, hoofing the ball away only for it to come straight back in games.

But to find a way to string some passes together, work our way back up to the other end and score will give us all just that little bit more confidence when the chips are down.

We don't half make it difficult for ourselves at times and I'd love to see the occasional straightforward stress-free comfortable win, but the character this team showed after we blew the lead yesterday was excellent.

The reporter on Sky Sports said he thought it didn't look like a pen, that it was 50/50 🙄

TBF to the defender he pretty much just ran straight into the back of him. Quite possibly completely accidental as he couldn't have known just how slow Jerome is.

Still, 100% a penalty.

Just watched goals back. What a run (and finish) from Thomason. And somebody is really going to have to explain why the foul on Jerome wasn’t a red card. 

I was under the impression if your the last man and stopped a goal scoring opportunity it’s s straight red which he was so unless they have changed the rules again 🤷‍♂️. .
 Thomason needs to be careful could of been a red again last minute on Saturday and last night there commentary said it looked like he through a elbow when arguing with one of there players when they were running back . Seems to be playing on the edge every week

😀 the defender must have played against Madine or maybe even Heskey in the past so could have been prepared for playing against strikers that "invite the challenge"

Stat corner:

Every league goal Toal has scored for us has been a night match.

He's only played in 8, and has scored in 4 of them, that's some going for a CB.  

All scored in the 2nd half too, that's the half nobody else seems to be able to score in from open play.

Other 3 were at Lincoln, and home v Pompey and MKD.

We've scored at least 3 goals in our 3 night matches this season, in the other 10 games we've scored 3 twice but none since the 2nd game of the season.

The rule changed a few years ago. 

If the defender is deemed to be making a genuine attempt to win the ball then it's not a red.

I’ve paid particular attention to this ever since our red at Accrington not long after the rules changed. There’s no way on earth he’s making an attempt to play the ball last night, purely even just by the nature of the foul in that he pulled him down rather than tripping him while stretching for the ball for example.

Isn't it also something to do with a double punishment, penalty and a sending off, they deemed a penalty sufficient. If its outside the box then not as lenient.

Pretty sure it's just seen as whether the defender is deliberately preventing a goal scoring opportunity or not. Could well be wrong though. 

As I said though, Keogh looked like a greyhound compared to Jerome last night,  so the collision was inevitable. Probably very lucky not to have got a red.

The double punishment thing only kicks in with a genuine attempt at playing the ball so you’re definitely on the right lines @DazBob

Keogh chasing after Jerome - it was like watching sports day at an old people‘s home 😂.

Good from Jerome though, being on the shoulder and anticipating the flick on and also drawing the foul and making sure we got the pen

Aye, you'd imagine Jerome being the one flicking on too, but his experience told. Kept onside well and got in front of his man.
