New Oxford United boss Waddock feels for the fans after 3-0 defeat

Oxford Mail: Gary Waddock applauds the United fans who made the trip to Southend Gary Waddock applauds the United fans who made the trip to Southend

GARY Waddock was hugely disappointed as Oxford United crumbled to a 3-0 defeat at Southend United in his first game in charge.

The writing was on the wall after a poor start which saw Will Atkinson and Lee Barnard, from the penalty spot, put the home side 2-0 up inside 17 minutes.

United had a couple of opportunities to get back into the game, but could have no complaints over the result, which was sealed by the excellent Jamar Loza late on.

Waddock, who was appointed as U’s head coach on Saturday, had made a point of going to applaud the supporters before kick-off and the new boss sympathised with those who had made the trip.

He said: “It was a very disappointing evening – obviously I feel for the fans that have travelled down here.

“I wanted to do better in terms of getting a result for them as well, so overall it wasn’t the best evening.”

Waddock watched Friday’s 1-0 victory over Hartlepool and struggled to explain why the side were unrecognisable four days later, in a live Sky Bet League Two game.

He said: “I don’t know whether it was because the Sky cameras were here and they were trying to impress too much, I’m not sure.

“I had a long conversation with the players afterwards. They’re obviously disappointed, so we will have to address all that.”

The result could have been much worse without an excellent display from Ryan Clarke.

The goalkeeper made several stops to thwart a buoyant Southend, which more than made up for conceding the penalty.

Clarke was adjudged to have brought down Loza, a decision the U’s No 1 disputed.

He said: “I knew I wasn’t going to get there, so I purposely kept my hands down.

“But I think once he saw me coming, he made the decision to run into me.

“He played for it. I thought it was harsh, but the referee gave it.”

He added: “We started off badly in the first 20 minutes, but still had the chances to maybe go in at half-time with a bit of credit.

“To go in 2-0 down at half-time was going to be a struggle and to be fair to Southend, they were all over us.

“We weren’t making the right decisions. It was nothing to do with the new manager coming in, it’s down to us as professionals to learn how to manage games.”

So what happened to the "bubble" that a new manager creates? This was one of the poorest displays of a season which has seen many good ones followed by not so good ones. 9th position beckons!

The Bubble burst with the departure of Wilder. Love Wilder or hate Wilder (there was no middle ground with CW) The man got the best out of very limited resources. He also knew that change was needed to maintain the emphasis, The club had to make a choice, give CW what he wanted, a long term contract, changes to his coaching staff (Waldorf and Stadler (Lewis and Melville) replaced with CW'S choices and greater control/say over transfer ins and outs, or as they decided to do let CW Leave.
I am led to believe that Waddock was given the job as he was one of the only candidates' that did not want to bring in his own coaching staff so Waldorf and Stadler are here to stay.
The club has made it's decision and will now reap what they have sown. Automatic promotion has gone, and present performances indicate that even the play offs are beyond Oxford United. Another promising season will come to nothing.

"I am led to believe that Waddock was given the job as he was one of the only candidates' that did not want to bring in his own coaching staff "

Led to believe by whom? I would be very surprised if this was the case, the chairman has done things properly and I've been very impressed with how he went about recruiting Waddock. All you could say is that it would have been better if he had a few more games then he has before the end of the season.

The idiocy of a good sized contingent of Oxford fans never ceases to amaze me. Yes it was a turgid performance last night, but calling for the managers head when he has only had 1 short training session is sheer lunacy. You guys should never have got rid of Wilder in the first place. Oxford improved year on year under his leadership, yet the aforementioned idiotic contingent seem to think that OUFC have a divine right to be playing at a higher level instantly. You need to change your foolish mentality guys or you will continue to be disappointed. Get behind Waddock and in time you will reap the benefits, but frequently calling for the head of a manager after a spell of bad results make you no better than Chelsea/Spurs/Man U fans.

Wilder was on his 3rd consecutive season of failure - he left the club after Lenagan refused to be forced into awarding him a new contract with no guarantee of promotion. At what point will the pro Wilder people accept that we were not looking like promotion contenders when Wilder left and he's left us with a team of below average players. If Wilder really is that good why are Northampton still in the a relegation spot? Wilder has gone Lewis&Melville should follow along with most of 1st team squad. Waddock needs support from Lenagan next season or we'll remain a bottom tier team..or worse.

If anybody was at the game on Friday they would have seen just how low the confidence is in the players, yes we got a win but the performance was very poor. That's going to take more than 24 hours of being at a club to change. We have a manager now and if you are a true fan join me in getting behind the team until the end of the season. The players need our support to get out of this slump and push us forward. Waddock may just get us to wembely and another day out up there in our thousands would not be a bad season!

We have money in the 12th man fund that could pay the wages of a player or two until the end of the season- and we are carrying players with injuries.

I find myself scratching my head as to why the Muppets would be so intimately acquainted with the statistics of Northampton Town. And then of course it becomes clear; their absolute nightmare scenario is that having left us 2 points off automatic promotion, and 7 points clear of the chasing pack, Wilder might save Northampton from relegation and Oxford might miss out on the play-offs altogether. Of course, talk of Oxford actually getting promotion is finished now, and seems unrealistic unless the new soon-to-be-hated manager can turn things around and fast.

Even worse for the Muppets, the last game of the season is against Northampton Town. Can you imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth if they beat us to stay up, and keep us down? Of course it would have been handy taking Chris Wilder's unbeaten away record into that game, and indeed the play-offs, but of course that has been well and truly trashed and forgotten about now.

Personally, I don't care what happens to Northampton, and I desperately hope we beat them, but for the Muppets whose personal hatred of Chris Wilder knows no boundary of football club, they are clearly watching the bottom of the table as closely as the rest of us are watching the top.

Yep thick is the word. Changing the argument to suit your ignorance isn't a vote winner. Wilder left us a team of very average players most of whom he signed. You seem a bit confused although I'm not surprised. Oh and being a palm reader before the event&self righteous after it isn't an intellectual process, it's just a cheap way of defending a very weak argument. Muppet is an apt word for you. My 'hatred' of Wilder is your stupid interpretation of facts you don't like. I hope with a lot of help your IQ reaches double figures soon.

Have the Muppets called for Waddock to be sacked yet?
Give them a chance Thursday should be long enough for the muppets and yrs thats you bigalbiker
You and snakey possibly the two thickest posters on here. Here's a fact for you both -When Wilder took over Northampton they were 6pts from safety -he's been in charge for 13 games and now Northampton are 2pts from safety. So, and I'll make this easy for you both, t h a t ' s 4 p o i n t s g a i n e d f r o m 13 g a m e s . See how I spelt it slowly so you can both grasp how the mighty Wilder is not so great? Now why don't you too get a room and stay up all night and try to string a sentence together?
Can see you are a muppet so glad not all oxford fans are like you
I think you may want go the see miss piggy

I find myself scratching my head as to why the Muppets would be so intimately acquainted with the statistics of Northampton Town. And then of course it becomes clear; their absolute nightmare scenario is that having left us 2 points off automatic promotion, and 7 points clear of the chasing pack, Wilder might save Northampton from relegation and Oxford might miss out on the play-offs altogether. Of course, talk of Oxford actually getting promotion is finished now, and seems unrealistic unless the new soon-to-be-hated manager can turn things around and fast.

Even worse for the Muppets, the last game of the season is against Northampton Town. Can you imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth if they beat us to stay up, and keep us down? Of course it would have been handy taking Chris Wilder's unbeaten away record into that game, and indeed the play-offs, but of course that has been well and truly trashed and forgotten about now.

Personally, I don't care what happens to Northampton, and I desperately hope we beat them, but for the Muppets whose personal hatred of Chris Wilder knows no boundary of football club, they are clearly watching the bottom of the table as closely as the rest of us are watching the top.
Yep thick is the word. Changing the argument to suit your ignorance isn't a vote winner. Wilder left us a team of very average players most of whom he signed. You seem a bit confused although I'm not surprised. Oh and being a palm reader before the event&self righteous after it isn't an intellectual process, it's just a cheap way of defending a very weak argument. Muppet is an apt word for you. My 'hatred' of Wilder is your stupid interpretation of facts you don't like. I hope with a lot of help your IQ reaches double figures soon.
You really think something of yourself yet your self belief is why cw went. My only wish is you do one too
hopefully my the trap door and break you neck
