  • Yesterday was my first game back since NYD 2020. I've seen the Couhig 'project' develop and even remarked to a friend/fellow supporter of 20+ years how the matchday experience has improved over that time. Of course, a sunny afternoon, plentiful Rebe…
  • Disappointing result for the local team I follow (Chalfont) and sounded like a few ugly scenes with the dismissal at the end. Especially galling as they looked so solid when I saw them on the opening day of the league season. For other local footbal…
  • Don't get to more than 8-10 games a season now but Friday was the worst atmosphere I've known at AP for some time. Rightly or wrongly, there seems to be a general feeling that we've got a squad that could, and arguably should, be doing better, even …
  • Haven't been to the new ground yet but good to see them back in Slough and doing well (despite the fact they're historic rivals). I wonder how much Beaconsfield have lost out financially because Slough have moved on.
  • I imagine 147 will make the trip.
  • 'They're not worth it' a non story? We're not talking about a few games, we've been gash for ages and no sign of change. I think we deserve more than that as a response. Perhaps Harriman is a poor scapegoat as he's one of our better players but that…
  • Hardly a 'sea of goons' taking umbridge with Harriman's 'they're not worth it' comments. His face said it all. He'd knew he'd committed a howler and Hayes rightly pulled him away. These players are not beyond criticism but sadly the manager we'd all…
  • Woeful performance. No excuses. I can't believe the blame lies with a fairly decent set of players (Sam Wood aside, whose slide resembles that of the once great Chris Vinnicombe).
  • The 2-2 at Layer Road on a Tuesday night back in 2001 was one of the more entertaining clashes I've personally attended. We won the corresponding game 1-0 in the season after (Brownie with a pen?) but the game itself was forgettable. I wonder how ma…
  • Good workout last night against a technically astute Brentford outfit. Some of our passing and spreading of the ball was great to see. Overall I think the squad is shaping up very nicely and with a few more additions there's every reason to be hopef…
  • The white kit makes our players seem more imposing. Even the tank-like Pierre looked bigger. Good start for Southwell, hopefully he'll poach many more.
  • Probably old news but former Wanderer Tom Williams is now at Slough. Sadly I don't think their new ground will be ready for the start of the season, would've been up for a friendly there.
  • Surely Suth-ell like the racecourse?
  • He's 7/1 to sign for Wycombe with Cheltenham (3/1) and Grimsby (5/1) heading the queue. Make of that what you will.
  • Great work Len and team. Let them enjoy their moment of success and subsequent financial meltdown.
  • It's a Facebook takeover from the moron brigade. Ainsworth has certainly endured a topsy-turvy managerial career at WWFC. Loathed one minute, loved the next...repeat as necessary. I think he's more than entitled to another crack next season but he's…
  • Dagenham at home...'we wanna know why you're such a...'. Didn't join in personally, too busy remembering his finest moments at Gillingham and Torquay...
  • Love the format of these. No room for messing around! I remember a Becky SYCOB v Slough semi a few years back. Sluff thought they could just turn up against their plucky landlords and were sent packing with their tails between their legs - long seas…
  • I think the chants to the tune of 'Hey baby' aimed at the likes of John Akinde/Matt McClure etc are pretty unwarranted and no need for the 'c bomb'. We all like a bit of witty swearing but would agree that a constant stream is pretty moronic, esp…
  • @Doob said: Why anybody cares about Col U after all these years I've no idea (we finished 2nd - get over it!) but it's certainly worth celebrating the relegation of MK franchise. Let's hope it's the start of a slide to their rightful place outsid…
  • Stand corrected, there's also this shambles of a thread: http://gaschat.co.uk/thread/6143/weeks-mind-games
  • Not much on their forum either barring a ticket thread. http://gaschat.co.uk/thread/5878/wycombe-tickets?page=4 Maybe the animosity has been over-hyped. Aside from all that this is a big game in terms of keeping in touch. Seems like the Nor…
  • Northampton showed they're a good League 2 side at Adams Park and (probably) worthy champions but some uncharacteristic defensive blundering was a big deciding factor in their success. Maybe I'm remembering the game through blue-tinted specs. Onward…
  • Well done him. Don't have any issue with Tisdale or Exeter despite recent spats. Styles make fights and all that and it's fair to says ours differs from Exeter's, albeit ours got us to Wembley last season so maybe we've won that argument. Can unders…
  • No need to get too prissy about the "time wasting barsteward" chant. As fans we know there's more to the way we win than mere game management and I'm sure every Chairboy and girl welcomed the fact we actually tried to play football yesterday. The ch…
  • Wouldn't call it a nothing game, there were chances at both ends and at various points a game of football broke out. GA's tactical nous or lack thereof is often cited as the chink in his armour but he got yesterday's selection and set-up spot on. Mc…
  • Stevie Craig and John Sutton were pretty anaemic. Then there's Ian Stonebridge...although he did score an absolute scorcher once, can't remember who it was against. Old Dicky Harris was very average, Gavin Holligan etc. Makes you appreciate th…
  • "One count of using threatening and abusive/insulting words with intent to cause fear." So were they just gobbing off at each other? Silly boys.
  • I wonder what's changed behind the scenes between the end of last season and now. Obviously AAH hasn't kicked on as we/GA had expected but usually Gareth seems to give players the benefit of the doubt. Good luck to him.
  • More ammo for the 'Reputation' thread. Didn't go to D&R but judging on the home game and what's been written about last night it seems that their fans can feel pretty hard done by in games against us this season. Not that I particularly care. Ro…
