“I think this season has certainly taken it out of me.”
This is a Matt Bloomfield quote taken from the BFP article above.
Not sure when I last agreed with a quote quite so much. I feel it to my very marrow.
I can’t remember when I wanted a season to end as much as this one.
The loss of Anis Mehmeti, Alfie Mawson, Richard Dobson and Gareth Ainsworth in the space of three weeks has been more difficult to bear than I dared imagine.
The look on Matt’s in the Vere Suite after the Lincoln walkover will haunt me for some time. He looked a broken man.
We don’t need to look too far back into our history to know how difficult it is to follow a successful manager.
I fear for Matt. Following Gareth Ainsworth is an almost impossible task.
That said, I saw at first hand on several occasions how dedicated Matt was to his playing career. I don’t think there has ever been a Wycombe Wanderers as professional as Matt.
I hope Matt can get the break he needs during the close season and he’s ready to take on this job and make it his. I wish him all the luck in the world. He has my 100% support.
