  • I've been a bit down on the idea of VPNing in but given the club are openly promoting the idea I think the moral rubicon has been crossed for me. Might dip my toe in using Erroll's method at some point soon. https://twitter.com/wwfcofficial/statu…
  • I get the argument that Mehmeti is more exciting than Horgan and, on his day, more likely to score. But not every performance is a Plymouth. With Horgan you're getting consistency - intelligent play, vision, good interaction with McCleary. The in…
  • I don't think anyone has anything to worry about in Jan, unless Anis goes on a long scoring run between now and then. Other than Plymouth he's not set League One on fire, he's not even been a regular starter for us until the last couple of weeks. Th…
  • @arnos_grove said: Maybe Bobby C will seal the deal by dipping into that unspent £10m Championship Fund that @aloysius often refers to? Good signs are that Anis smiled when he scored and celebrated with others. Can’t remember who it was, b…

  • @Brownie said: Let's be having you @aloysius Look, I can't be right about everything
  • That's a fascinating interview, I loved the quote about how learning physics will be far more useful for his footballing career than playing on a PlayStation. He seems like exactly the sort of recruit Gareth likes - someone whose intelligence, appli…
  • @HolmerBlue said: Ooh this could be an interesting topic. The one player we don't rate as much as everyone else all loves, let's be honest, we all probably have one ! Anis Mehmeti for me, for reasons I've previously expounded upon at leng…
  • I think the club are getting into the habit of using environmentalism as a figleaf for making changes which are in reality purely driven by financial considerations. If they really put environmentalism front and centre they wouldn't be trumpeting…
  • Yes and no... Sitting in the stands, even tightly packed around others, is really the least likely place you'll catch covid while watching Wycombe. The places people are likely to get covid are the toilets, the bars, the refreshment tent, pinch poin…
  • I'm wondering if the problem is Hanlan being too good. The shape we played at the start of the season, with two creative attackers behind a target man, suited us down to the ground. Then Hanlan bursts onto the scene, shows us his talent, and we c…
  • There can't be many clubs with both Iraqi and (of) Iranian (descent) players in their squad!
  • @glasshalffull said: I can’t see any way this issue could affect our bid to win promotion. Players play, lawyers sue and since our chairman is a highly qualified lawyer with his own company there is no conflict whatsoever. Are you using y…
  • That's incredibly sad, and reiterates the need for us to sign more wing backs I'm afraid. I'm sure Gareth and co are scouting round the free agents who can play that position. We can't even rely on the development squad with five defenders all injur…
  • @ReturnToSenda said: No Wycombe player who completed the game had fewer touches of the ball than McCarthy, who I forgot was playing for large periods. Still think we have enough strength in depth at wingback?
  • This is the problem with not getting more strength in depth in the wingback position. I presume Obita has had a knock which means we're playing a right wingback as left wingback and a right back as right wingback. Far from ideal.
  • If we're going to get into the play offs / automatic spots this season, it will be down to Horgan, McCleary and Vokes clicking. So far only McCleary is firing on all cylinders but the other two have already displayed the Championship-level quality t…
  • @HCblue said: @aloysius said: I repeat again. If Rob Couhig has to explain to shareholders why he didn't do more to fight the Derby ruling given Wycombe have lost, by his calculations, £20m from being relegated, then surely he shoul…
  • I repeat again. If Rob Couhig has to explain to shareholders why he didn't do more to fight the Derby ruling given Wycombe have lost, by his calculations, £20m from being relegated, then surely he should also have to justify why he didn't release an…
  • I'd like to see Bayo and Bloomfield start on Tuesday. It's a nice reward for their service in a match we all know we're going to lose no matter who we pick. But I also think we should play Horgan and McCleary who will surely relish the opportunity t…
  • It was interesting watching how much Horgan and McCleary played off each other without involving Vokes. It's almost like Gareth has instructed the team to play both a Plan A and a Plan B at the same time. We either play centrally through the spine, …
  • The ball just sticks to McCleary, doesn't it? That man has some serious vision and skill. On top of which, he's added supreme fitness to his game. When he arrived last season he looked a little flabby round the middle. Now he is totally ripped (as h…
  • And perhaps they can schedule a fireworks display in the morning to wake everyone up.
  • I see the club have slipped out the news today that the bus service from the station will now cost £3. Meaning the "initial free period" that they trumpeted before Lincoln lasted one match. I've no problem with them charging for the service and £…
  • I vaguely recall that we always start slowly after international breaks, it ruins our momentum and the players seem to be a bit sluggish without a competitive fixture for a couple of weeks. Didn't see the match but listening to the commentary the fo…
  • @our_frank not for the first time
  • I'd love to see Jordon Ibe and Kadeem Harris return as our reserve wing backs.
  • Let's hope this is the wake up call he needs and comes back mentality stronger.
  • @TheAndyGrahamFanClub said: Whilst it might seem a bit reckless if we don't have faith in any of the development players to come in and cover for a couple of games what's the point? Mehmeti was a wild card from last season, Burley has the potenti…
  • Thanks @DevC - that's interesting. Agreed it's unlikely we'll sign three today. I'm still hedging bets on Anthony Stewart leaving as well. The midweek 'knock' could well refer to a knock on the door from another club...
  • I liked Alex, though last season was a step too far I think. But at League One level he was good. A lot stronger than he looked and very selfless for the cause. Swapping the Chilterns for the Highlands is certainly an upgrade in hill-quality at leas…
