We should have put out a better side last night .
It’s one of the few competitions you can have a bit of excitement in.
Fans love a draw against a top side .
It’s mugging everyone off playing a reserve side against a team we can beat .

I am afraid Foley had a disappointing  game last night and looks miles off what is required in L2; for us that is!
Foley is a nothing player.
He does nothing to influence a game , he does nothing you remember , he does nothing particularly wrong , he does nothing to change a game when he comes on and nothing happens when he comes off.
Nothing ..... nothing at all .....

The supposed “clamour” is a result of Cornell’s short comings, not over hyped belief in Ward.
 

The two go together: the perceived ‘clamour’  as you put it was reinforced by the mistaken belief in Wards ability.You further fuelled the situation by grossly demonising a young players ability. There was little or no attempt to offer constructive advice to the player let alone a potential replacement. In many years of supporting the Cobblers it is hard to recall such a one sided and vindictive appraisal of a player contracted to a Club you supposedly support.

How many times does any team only have 6 on the bench? I'd venture it is less than 5% of games, maybe even less than 1% - that in itself makes it odd.

I thought that when a player who would have been on the bench drops out they would be replaced by another. We didn't have any natural cover for right back last night, with it being Facey's first game back it would have been sensible to add a bit of cover there. Given that Odoffin is likely to make way for Facey now it wouldn't have done any harm for him to be on the bench last night in my opinion.

It's not a criticism of Austin just struck me as an anomaly.

That’s a good point especially as we have the largest squad in the world. I suppose if someone had to drop out Shortly before the game  it would be unfair to drag someone down to Wycombe to watch the game from the bench.

Pretty sure young Cam McWilliams would have been the 7th sub but was injured (perhaps just he had a niggle when they arrived at the ground and didn't want to risk him?)

They actually have someone called Reggie Lambe playing for them. Full name
Reginald Everard Vibart Thompson-Lambe.

He’s 11th in line for the throne

Not that surprised sadly. I remember his performance at Scunny in the FA Cup last year being one of the worst individual performances that I had ever seen. Him as back up was one of the biggest reasons for me why keeping Crooks was absolutely critical.

What is odd in having 6 on the bench? Your getting as bad as the others.

My first game watching the Cobblers this season (not even been to a pre-season game this year). Some random thoughts from my perspective (sat with the Wycombe supporters about 15 yards the other side of the Half Way line from where most of our supporters were);

......................................
One very bitter point - their goalkeeper's antics in the penalty shootout delaying penalties being taken whilst he got his hair right and his shiny red gloves back on - repellant.

Pretty good report CF and accurate too. I enjoyed the hoof ball to our two tiny fwds! -  Roll Eyes 'Fort that Morais should have done a lot better with his chance.Agree with your comments on their goal keeper antics not to mention the laser lights flashed towards our players in the penalty shoot out.

The only players who looked first team standard to me last night were:
Taylor, Crooks, Facey, Turnbull, Bowditch and Hoskins. All others were ineffective and/or not good enough.
The great white hope Ward is not ready yet and does not appear to have sufficient quality to challenge yet for a first team spot. Perhaps with Cornell in goal for the penalties we might have won as Ward did not look llke saving any or get near to any of them.
