We'll, at least you don't have to play Wycombe for at least a year as they're going to get to the final and Akinfenwa comes on to score a 90+ 10 winner past a frustrated Oxford United side.

 

I'm going 0-0 or 0-1 for the other semi and a 2-1 Wycombe win in the final.

 

Have I told you how much I don't like Wycombe?

Yeah, I mean honestly I'm not that bothered because I kind of knew before the playoffs started that we wouldn't do that well. We never do! Also this has been a weird truncated season anyway.

We need to concentrate on going up automatically next season and not via the playoffs. I think we also need to look at whether KJ has taken us as far as he can..

Good luck to Oxford in the final.

Wycombe through. Just the 12 minutes as added time. Wycombe only committed 19 fouls :D

They're probably the most cynical awful team in the entire EFL.

Good luck @Chawkso

 

Cheers! :)  Bonkers that after two legs it came down a single penalty. Thought it was a tight game with neither team playing to their full potential again. I mean look at the stats, you can't get much closer! 

 

After I complained about him struggling in the last game respect to Woodburn to come on with a few minutes to go and take a pen, must take some guts.

 

I'm not optimistic about Wembley as our recent record hasn't been good, but you never know. If it was a league game back when things were more normal I'd fancy beating them.

 

I just hope we've got a game plan for Wycombe's antics - we managed to beat them before Christmas but it took Akinfenwa getting sent off for grabbing our captain by the throat!

 

Would have preferred for it to have been the final against Pompey then at least one of us would go up, I don't like Wycombe either.

Hopefully you're near the sharp end of the league next season @Coltrane and have better luck.

I've got the same feeling - I reckon this might be Northampton Exeter again.

We'll have to start really well to disrupt their game, otherwise we're not going to get time/space to play our game if we're on the back foot from the off.

Bloody Wycombe. I'm surprised Mackie is on the bench given his experience. Oxford need to score soon or you know exactly what Ainsworth will do at half time. Shut up shop, disrupt the flow and waste time.

Well played Wycombe

 

Rllmuk's Championship thread is not going to understand what Wycombe are next season. 

Commiserations to all the play off teams that didn't go up and that includes most of the people who post here. 

Fucking Wycombe.

So why don’t people like Wycombe? Just crap style of play?

 

Having said that, Bolton and Sheffield Wednesday fans seem happy for them on twitter for some reason. 

 

They're a cynical, niggly, time wasting, cheating, physical side who can play football but tend to win games by taking a lead and then they park the bus.

They're almost always the last to finish on a Saturday.

Gareth Ainsworth is a nice bloke but his Wycombe side has never changed.

Yeah basically, they're hoofball specialists. Although I can't really complain too much tonight. They came with a plan and executed it well, our defeat was entirely of our making. Two mistakes for their goals, one very silly, and not finishing two very good chances cost us. We had a great spell at the start of the second half but choked when it mattered.

 

To keep things in perspective though, family and friends are in good health and the club I follow still exists for now. They are things to be grateful for at this time.

 

See all you League One peeps again next season, not sure when I'll get to sit in "my" seat again but I'll be waiting patiently for that day.

That, and they voted to end the current season knowing full well PPG pushed them up from being out of the play-offs (in 8th), into the play-offs (leaping up to 3rd). At which point, their vote to not play didn't matter and they happily took part again.

 

I can totally see why they did it, and I don't blame them as such, but it was shitty to all the other teams and IMO no club that voted to "stop playing as carrying on will kill us" should have then been allowed to enter the play-offs immediately after. You either could play or you couldn't - voting you couldn't tactically so you actually did should have been an option the EFL took off the table.

 

I hate myself for it, as it's really not nice and would be horrible for the fans, but I can't help but hope they get spanked week-in week-out next season and finish bottom.

Is Oxford vs Wycombe much of a derby?  They are probably only 25 miles apart with little but hills and villages between the two places.   I've got this weird little soft spot for Wycombe because I work on the railway line which passes through it (which connects it to both Oxford and Wembley, I'm sure my employer would have enjoyed the revenue that game would have normally produced) and I've been to Adams Park a couple of times with Villa, though going there next season for a league game is gonna feel pretty weird.

I would be surprised if Akinfenwa is playing too much in the Championship, if that is the case he left with a beautiful parting gift

 

 

Funny thing was, he was absolutely useless - after he came on they had almost no attacking threat. I would have been delighted if he had started for them! 

 

I can't see him getting game time in the Championship but who knows.

We don't consider it a derby, but I think they do. Our derby is with Swindon, and to a lesser extent due to them being in a different division for some time now, Reading.

 

Wycombe were getting up to little antics like only allocating us a small amount of tickets at their place, blaming it on Thames Valley Police advice. Then TVP replied to their tweet saying they had advised nothing of the sort! 

 

All moot now anyway as the game was called off due to the season being suspended but I found it amusingly petty at the time.

https://www.ccfc.co.uk/news/2020/july/news-coventry-city-and-university-of-warwick-announce-new-sky-blues-stadium-plans/

 

 



Coventry City Football Club and the University of Warwick are delighted to announce that they have commenced planning for a partnership, which would see the University provide land to the Club for the development of a new stadium, thereby creating a new home for the Football Club with easy access for fans living in the City of Coventry.

Whilst an exact site has yet to be agreed, its proximity would be on the agricultural field area of the University of Warwick land on its main campus at the southwest edge of Coventry.

The Club will own and be entirely responsible for the cost of the stadium and its operation; equally, the Club will receive all stadium revenues it generates.

Both the University and the Club are committed to a visionary, environmentally friendly stadium in terms of materials, energy, noise, building and of course access.

We envision supporters arriving at the stadium through a new light rail station at the ground running alongside a new link road.

This will require significant discussion and partnership work with all surrounding local authorities, the West Midlands Combined Local Authority and the LEP to ensure the funding and support is there to provide that infrastructure.

The Club and the University wanted to make people aware of this exciting new development as soon as possible and hope that in doing so, it will pave the way to many discussions needed with a range of partners to progress this project.  

The Club and the University do not expect to issue any further joint statements on this initiative until there is significant news that we can share.

 

 

Fucking hell, IF this all came about as planned it could end 15+ years of misery. The owners have given us a lot of jibber-jabber about building a ground and identifying sites for years now but this is the first time it's come with a partner who would have no interest getting involved if it wasn't legitimate. Hold me

It's almost perfect for me, I never really got on with the Ricoh having been spoiled by how close I lived to Highfield Road. I'm still some miles away from the uni but it's a much more convenient trip if it comes to fruition. Big if of course

That's true, particularly for away fans (there can't be too many away grounds with easier directions than 'M6, J3') although with it piggybacking on the existing road and light rail plans hopefully that would make a big difference
