Waddock: Takes heat off players
Wycombe manager Gary Waddock is happy to take flak from the fans if it helps take the pressure off his struggling players.
Wanderers slumped to their fifth league loss in a row without scoring a goal against Tranmere on Saturday, and were booed off by the travelling supporters at half-time and after the final whistle at Prenton Park.
"I take total responsibility for the team and everything we do," said Waddock, who was subjected to chants of 'you don't know what you're doing' during the 2-0 defeat on the Wirral. "They have every right to voice their opinion and anger. If they direct that towards me then great because it keeps it away from the players.
"I take responsibility for everything that happens on the pitch and, collectively, we have conceded two goals and we are bitterly disappointed again. And at the moment we are not able to score goals.
"I keep juggling it to find the right balance and, at the moment, I have been unable to find it. I will keep thinking and looking and see what we come out with. But we have to keep believing."
