Who the hell are Wycombe Wanderers? TSS August 13, 2009 Leeds United 12 Comments Leeds United will play Wycombe Wanderers (informally known as the Chairboys) for the first time in their history on Saturday as the League One campaign continues. The Wycombe Wanderers official site is describing the game as ‘one of the biggest in recent history’. The club play their home games at Adams Park in Buckinghamshire and are currently managed by former England U21, Leicester City and Hull City manager Peter Taylor. Taylor also acted as caretaker manager of the national side in 2000. Taylor has been quite successful in lower league management getting Hull promoted twice during his four years at the club. After taking over Wycombe in May 2008, he guided them to promotion at the first time of asking finishing third in last years League Two championship. Adams Park can hold upto 10,000 fans although rarely achieves such an attendance. Last season the clubs average was just over 5,000, but they’ll be expecting close to a full house on Saturday as most clubs do when Leeds United are in town. We’re not famous anymore! Michael Duberry back in his 'happiest days' at Leeds United. Leeds fans will be familiar with at least two of the players in the Wycombe line-up. Former players, Ian Westlake and Michael Duberry both play for the club these days, with Michael Duberry in the role of captain. Duberry told the offical WWFC site that his “time at Leeds was probably the happiest of my career.'” He goes on to add that “We had a great team spirit in those days and the players used to come in a couple of hours before training just to have breakfast together and talk football. They were great days and I was sorry to leave”. Anyone who attends the game on Saturday will be able to sample more of his interview including his thoughts on giving evidence at that trial we all want to forget about. On paper, Leeds United should walk this game, but Wycombe shouldn’t be underestimated. Peter Taylor is a good manager, with years of experience and is sure to have done his homework. You also have to factor in the ‘Cup Final’ factor. As Wycombe admitted on their official site, this is a huge game for them. The club has just started making steps forward under Peter Taylor and this is by far the biggest game they’ve played so far, so the players will need little motivation ahead of the fixture. Having said that, the quality of the Leeds side should be the decisive factor and I’d be disappointed with anything less than three points.
