What was your favourite Wycombe goal?

Although not in the Adams Park streak, my favourite goal during that period has to

be JJ’s free kick at the 2015 play off final at Wembley. It was sublime and the

celebration both on and off the pitch was incredible, as we thought we were in

League One. What happened after that was the cruelest moment I ever had to

endure as a Chairboy. It took me weeks to get over the result. The journey home on

the Chiltern Line that evening was surreal. The trains were packed but completely

silent. We were in total shock, but I was also so proud - proud of how far we had

come in twelve months and proud of Gareth Ainsworth’s dignity in defeat. He and the

whole team clapped Southend off the park, despite such a bitter pill to swallow. It

has taken five years and now justice has been done. We are in the Championship

and Southend are in League Two. I can hardly believe how far we’ve come since

that fateful day.

Who is your favourite player (or players)

from those twenty years and why?

In the nineties it was Mickey Bell. I used to

love his runs up the left wing. He was a great

player and I was very upset when we lost him

to Bristol City. My other favourites from that

time were Dave Carroll and Jason Cousins.

Carroll could walk on water, while Cousins’

tackles could bring water to the eyes!

But top of the list by a long way is JJ. I had

the pleasure to meet him once and he was

genuinely such a nice guy. More than that, he

can score from corners! At the Fleetwood

match, last game of the season, as JJ took

the corner, I shouted out ‘ Straight in JJ ‘ and

in it went! I’m not sure if he heard me!

Favourite goal: Jacobson fires in the opening goal of the 2015 League Two Playoff Final
