My Fellow Wycombe fan has some facts wrong. Its 18, yes 18 games without filling the bench this season. sometimes only 4 available.
Our form attracted the Vultures and we lost two players in January. Cowan-Hall to Millwall and Scowen to Barnsley. We had no option to sell as we needed the money to see out the season. We are that skint! More than you can ever imagine.
Ainsworth has somehow moulded a team and a pressing game that has suited us this season. Its actually remarkable that we have been been able to compete. We have no youth team, no reserves, and no future of them on the horizon in the future. We have 14 players available at the moment for Saturday as we speak thanks to Injuries and a suspension. Two of those 14 are kids who have never played in the football league before. It was always a **** to go into a season with such a small squad and injuries are finally catching us up. But its been a season above all other seasons in recent years to marvel at what we have achieved and if we pull of promotion then it will be deserved cos that's where we have finished. Finally its out of out own hands, well lets see what tomorrow brings with Bury v Southend, but at least we will have 2nd go in the play offs. On our day we will beat anybody in this division, we have taken 4 points off Shrewsbury, Luton, Bury, Southend. Only Burton have got he better of us. We have only lost twice away from home. We are not spoilers or cheats, anymore than any other side in this division, but for some reason its portrayed that way.
I well remember your troubles in the early 90's and thought a club like yours would understand our predicament, and maybe realise that we must be achieving miracles with what we have on offer instead of giving out such unjustified stick. We are not a bad bunch at all.
You spent a lot of time writing all that out... No one cares!
