John Gorman said he believes Wanderers’ efforts this season deserve full crowds at Adams Park, after enjoying a special return to the club for Saturday’s win over Crewe Alexandra.
The Scotsman managed the Blues from 2004-06 following a previous spell as caretaker manager, and left a lasting impression on the supporters after establishing one of the most exciting Wycombe teams of recent generations.
He was back to witness another dramatic late victory, and was welcomed back onto the pitch at half-time and into the players’ lounge afterwards to catch up with old friends.
“It’s been a great day,” he beamed afterwards. “Everyone’s treated me really well, I’ve met the new owner, and I got a brilliant reception coming back on to the pitch. The fans were lovely, and it’s just like old days.
“It was a great game, full of excitement. I felt sorry for Crewe because of the effort they put in, but Wycombe have an amazing spirit.
“The fans are great and they deserve more – supporters of big clubs should come and watch Wycombe. This stadium should be packed.
“Wycombe is always one of the first results I look for. I want them to do well; I text Gareth ‘good luck’ before every game and I see him a lot."
