Video Nasty Motivates Blues

Wycombe midfielder Marcus Bean made a fine start to the season protecting the back four in the opening day stalemate against Blackpool at Adams Park.

The combative midfielder was unlucky not to score during a lively first half after an intelligent lay-off from Adebayo Akinfenwa led to a fierce goal bound shot which was blocked by a defender.

After the game, Beany told me about a motivational tool that was used in the pre match preparations:

Wycombe Wanderers 0-0 Blackpool

Wycombe Wanderers got their first point of the season after an entertaining scoreless draw against Blackpool at a sun kissed Adams Park.

The Chairboys had the better of the chances from open play but crucially failed to convert any of them with Paris Cowan-Hall guilty of spurning the best opportunity with two minutes on the clock.

However, it was Blackpool that came closest to breaking the deadlock with an excellent first half free-kick from Chris Taylor that struck the angle of post and bar, with Wycombe goalkeeper Ryan Allsop beaten.

Overall, it was a solid performance and a clean sheet for the Chairboys with the only cloud in the clear blue skies being the red card for right back Michael Harriman for two yellow cards, the second of which looked very harsh indeed.

After the game, I spoke to the Wanderers manager, Gareth Ainsworth, for BBC Three Counties Radio:

Back In The Game!

The big kick-off is finally here and Wycombe Wanderers will begin life back in EFL1 against Blackpool at Adams Park. It’s the first time that the Chairboys have been in the third tier of English football since 2011/12 and they haven’t avoided relegation from this level since 2002/03.

I caught up with Wanderers manager, Gareth Ainsworth, ahead of the visit of The Seasiders and unsurprisingly, his first target this season is to ensure survival in League 1:
