WYCOMBE chairman Rob Couhig has stirred things up ahead of the League One play-off final by describing his side’s opponents, Sunderland, as a “team that is a Netflix show”, and bullishly predicting the Chairboys will have as many fans inside Wembley as the Black Cats.

Wycombe take on Sunderland a week on Saturday for a place in the Championship, and Couhig has been urging his club’s supporters to snap up tickets for the Wembley showpiece.

The first batch of Sunderland’s allocation of 37,480 tickets went on sale to season-card holders this morning, and with the prospect of additional tickets being made available further down the line, there is a chance the Wearsiders could be backed by the biggest support base for a domestic game at the new Wembley.

Wycombe, whose average attendance at Adams Park is a tiny fraction of the average home gate at the Stadium of Light, have been allocated 19,205 for the final, and Couhig is clearly desperate to ensure all those tickets are sold.

However, in an attempt to whip up his own supporters, he has aimed a number of barbs at Sunderland that have gone down particularly well on Wearside.

Couhig said: “May 21st, 2022. Two week from now, two months, two years, 20 years, indeed as long as Wycombe Wanderers Football Club exist, people will ask each other where they were when Wycombe played at Wembley and rose for the second time in three years to the Championship.

“By acting immediately, you can make sure that when the question is asked, that you will be able to proudly state that you were at Wembley.

“You will be able to tell others that you literally helped this team fulfil its destiny by standing strong with your fellow Chairboys and helped will the lads on to victory.

“We know that the last step in this journey will not be easy. We will again by the underdogs to those who ‘know football’. The supporters of the team that is a Netflix show will try to intimidate us with their superior number of fans. But they do not know Wycombe.”

Couhig then went on to make the bizarre claim that despite the vast discrepancy in ticket allocations, Wycombe will have as many supporters inside Wembley for the final as Sunderland.

He continued: “At Sunday’s match (the semi-final second leg with MK Dons) – despite the limitations placed on our fans’ attendance – the Wanderers still dominated the stands. And we expect to keep pace with them (Sunderland) in numbers of supporters in the stands. We will do this because our regular fanbase is excited and ready to maximise their support.”
