Me and my Wycombe - Joe Myall

24 October 2015

Joe Myall picks his highlights from his time supporting the Blues.

Name: Joe Myall

Where do you sit/stand? On the halfway line in the Origin Family Stand.

Who do you come to games with? It varies a lot but I’m at almost every game with Luke Harris and at away games with my brothers Ben and Harry.

How long have you been a supporter? I’ve supported Wycombe since I was seven and was first a season ticket holder in 2006.

What made you first start coming to matches? My Wanderers-supporting uncle and my dad taking me to a match after getting free tickets.

What was your first match as a fan? A 2-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic.

What has been your favourite moment supporting the club? Far too many to say – the euphoria of Torquay away stands out in my mind because of the amazing atmosphere and how it sparked the change to the more successful Wycombe we currently have! As well as this, Charlton away in the Carling Cup quarter-finals is special to me as one of my first away games and my first live experience of a real cup giant-killing. 

Who’s the best player you’ve seen during your time as a fan? Hard to name one but I was always a fan of Roger Johnson – he commanded the backline, was deadly from set pieces and showed real captain material in the way he played - you could always tell he could go onto a higher level. Scott McGleish is another; he read the game so well and was capable of scoring all types of goal, including some amazing strikes against Chesterfield and MK – it was no surprise he came back to bite us once he left.

Who’s been your favourite player to wear the quarters and why? Kevin Betsy was always a favourite of mine – he was a real typical winger who would take the defenders on, get the ball in and most importantly score goals! I especially remember his remarkable performances against Chelsea in the semi-finals and Bury away during his second spell at the club. Sergio Torres was always exciting to watch, Nikki Bull played with such passion in goal and Roger Johnson was excellent at the back! Of the current crop, Matty Bloomfield is a Wycombe legend and Paul Hayes is a class above upfront

Tell us a funny story from your time supporting the club? Bury away in 2013; me and my mate Josh decided to travel from Keele (my university) for the game – going with no other Wycombe fans, we managed to get lost and ended up sat at the halfway line just before kick-off in our Wycombe shirts and scarfs in the middle of the Bury end! Thankfully the stewards soon sorted us out.

What does the club mean to you? Wycombe means the world to me – going to the games, especially away, are the highlights of my week and have bought some of the favourite memories of my life. Supporting the club takes me through every emotion possible and I love the real sense of community that exists between fans and players.

Describe Wycombe Wanderers in three words: Exciting, united, determined.
