  • My calendar is showing this as a 7.45 kick off, so thanks!

    Also, 10/10 for that badge, what a work of art.

  • 3pm eastern time for any stateside wanderers, we’re in the strange week where the UK is only four hours ahead. I guess that makes it 1pm for you @Shev.

    Looking forward to seeing Barnsley after I clearly underestimated them earlier in the season. I still fancy is to get a point tonight.

  • I thought Barnsley were awful earlier in the season, dreadful.

    Someone, I think @our_frank, argued that they were in fact far from awful but a decent side.

    The run they have been on since would suggest, as usual, that he was right and I was wrong.

  • Basically if @our_frank says it I believe it.

  • You won't go far wrong

  • Their motto:- Spectemur Agendo
    Spectemur Agendo is a Latin motto meaning Let us be judged by our acts.
    I am sure they will be.

    Oh crikey, I've just remembered how awful the game against them earlier in the season was. Like you, I thought they were pretty terrible except for their defence which I remember being completely untroubled - as much through our own impotence up front as their skill. I'm intrigued to see if they deal as well with Uche.

  • Huge game tonight. 3 points and back to back wins gives us a bit of genuine belief, with other results generally going our way last night. COYB

  • We can't get to 21st tonight but we can get to 23rd. Come one Wycombe!

    Cheers @floyd. Not too impressed someone booked a 2pm meeting today. I may miss the second half (or at least some of it). Totally forgot to block off my calendar.

    Either way, come on Wycombe! Maybe we can go "small ball" against their oak tree defenders. I am imagining Kashket and Mehmeti running through their legs...

  • 9/10 for the epic badge. One point off for some man-spreading poses! Don’t tell Laurence Fox please.

  • I assumed they had rickets thanks to their gravy based diet.

    Poses aside I assume Lozza will be pleased as they are both white and not taking the knee...

  • No, I was just concerned that Lozza might start banging on about the β€˜wokerati’ (shudder) trying to cancel a proud British scene and claiming that no-one other than a privately educated southerners can understand what the β€˜red wall’ wants.

    Sounds like it's time to start coughing.

    I am sure they will be.

    So here's a question. If Wycombe were to have a Latin motto, what would it say?

  • Wycombe Wanderers: i non volunt videre illam omni septimana

  • @Last_Quarter said:
    Wycombe Wanderers: i non volunt videre illam omni septimana

    excellent! I think we have et victor

  • I think this was the badge that first kicked off the now-thriving tradition of analysis.

  • @Last_Quarter said:

    It's funny I know exactly what that says without knowing Latin.

    I may have to do the personal laptop behind work laptop trick I have used in the past. Though not if the game is like the last one against this lot!

  • The pipe-smoking gryphon on the Barnsley badge is a nice touch.

  • The badge has everything! And the detail of the belt buckles, the generous flares and the over sized shirt pockets on the glass blower...it’s pure Wigan Casino 1977

  • I know it's only the highlights on ifollow but we played okay in the away game...Bayo leading the line as well. I know they have improved since but it makes me optimistic that we could get something from the game.

  • Probably knock a mark off for the outer bits, when they shoved it in a template for copyright purposes they must have spent seconds on the fonts and fit.

  • The ref looks like an actual womble. Do they make good officials?

  • Mehmeti magic already.

  • Very special corner that

  • We've started pretty well. Could do with Horgan clicking into gear though.
