CLEAN UP THEIR ACT
With a suspended fine hanging over them from last season, The Wanderers' Financial Department will have breathed a sigh of relief when they saw the final disciplinary figures for the 1999/2000 season.
Despite eight red cards in the Football League, The Wanderers finished 19th in the fairplay table for the entire Football League and sixth in Division Two.
Top of the fairplay table were Crewe Alexandra who managed to keep their card count down to just 27 and were the only team not to have a player sent off.
The official 'kickers' of the Football League for 1999/2000 are Millwall and Reading who both committed over 700 fouls and picked up over 80 yellow cards apiece!
The Wanderers amassed over 100 yellow cards during the 1998/99 campaign but managed to keep this down to 46 last season. Bad boys for The Chairboys were Michael Simpson who picked up seven yellow cards and one red, while Jason Cousins saw red twice and was booked three times.
Congratulations to Mark Rogers who played his first 28 games for The Wanderers without receiving a single caution. Dave Carroll, the original Mr Clean, also went through the entire season without a yellow card but his 'advice' to the Assistant Referee in the game at Chesterfield in April resulted in a career first red card.
Wycombe's red card count of eight is the only down side of the statistics supplied to Chairboys on the Net by OPTA. However, with two of those picked up on a crazy night in Colchester and Jermaine McSporran's last minute tantrum against Stoke adding to that total, it looks like lessons are slowly being learnt.
