(Saturday 29th October 2005)
Wanderers had to dig deep to retain their unbeaten League record this season - coming back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Peterborough United at Adams Park on Saturday afternoon. The visitors led with sloppy goals on 33 minutes from Danny Crow and five minutes later from Trevor Benjamin. John Gorman gambled in the second-half by switching to a more attacking formation and it eventually paid off. The comeback started on 74 minutes when Ikechi Anya won a corner on the right and from the resulting delivery Mike Williamson headed the ball back across the face of the goal for fellow centre-back Roger Johnson to direct a header past Mark Tyler in the Posh goal. The equaliser came on 80 minutes after Sergio Torres pulled the ball back from the left for Clint Easton who saw his right footed 25 yarder take a slight deflection and end in the right corner of the Valley End net. Wanderers drop to second place in the table after Leyton Orient regained top spot with a 1-0 home victory over Oxford United.

Nathan Tyson MORE ON TYSON SAGA
(Tuesday 25th October 2005)
Wanderers would have stood to eventually bank in the order of 600,000 if Nathan Tyson had agreed a move to Sheffield Wednesday. According to reports, Wycombe agreed a 750,000 transfer fee that would have seen Tyson join The Owls on loan until the deal became permanent in the January 2006 transfer window. Its understood the fee would have been paid in installments, with the final payment coming at the end of the 2006/7 season. However, Wycombe would have been obliged to pay Reading a 'sell-on' fee understood to be 25% of any profit made from Tyson's move to Hillsborough. The deal would have smashed Wanderers' previous record transfer fee received which was the 375,000 Swindon Town, managed at the time by John Gorman, paid for Keith Scott back in the 1993/94 season.
Nathan Tyson TYSON STAYING - FOR NOW
(Monday 24th October 2005)
Nathan Tyson has shunned the latest offer to join 'Championship' strugglers Sheffield Wednesday. Owls boss Paul Sturrock watched Wycombe's dramatic 2-1 victory at Lincoln on Saturday and officials from Wednesday held talks with the striker on Monday. However, according to a brief report on Wanderers' official website, Tyson has turned down the move and will remain a Wycombe for the time being. The latest kick in the face for Wednesday comes less than a week after Swansea City striker Lee Trundle turned down a move to Hillsborough. Swansea Manager Kenny Jackett commented to the Sheffield Star, "If a very big club came in, say the Premier League, or one near the top of The Championship, then it might be different. He added "People are phoning Wycombe left, right and centre about Nathan Tyson but clubs don't want to let in-form strikers go."
Nathan Tyson TYSON SAGA - YET AGAIN
(Sunday 23rd October 2005)
The Nathan Tyson saga is back to the forefront of attention again after issue No.1 of The League Paper reported a 'TYSON SWOOP' exclusive on its front page. The report by Alan Briggs claims that Sheffield Wednesday have 'agreed a fee of around 700,000' to sign Tyson and the player 'will be at Hillsborough for talks after the weekend'. Wednesday had bids approaching this figure turned down by Wycombe back in September but this latest report adds, 'a compromise has been reached on Tyson's official 750,000 valuation. The arrangement is for the 23-year-old to join the Owls on loan with a guarantee of the move becoming permanent in the January transfer window.' It's understood that Wigan Athletic, Birmingham City and Crystal Palace are also amongst the club's monitoring Wanderers' top scorer.

He made his real First Team breakthrough in 2004/5, starting the first 16 games of the season and even managing to get on the score sheet with a long range clearance versus Leicester City. However, a cruciate injury in February 2005 side lined the youngster and he has failed to win his place back from Carlo Nash, thus prompting his move to Wycombe. Lonergan commented to Preston official website pne.com, "No disrespect to anybody but I would have gone anywhere, it just so happens that Wycombe have shown a massive interest, they don't need a keeper, I think they have got three keepers. The manager is very highly respected in the game and I have heard a lot of good things and he called me on Wednesday and I was more than happy to agree to it."

Nathan Tyson TYSON INJURY UPDATE
(Tuesday 4th October 2005)
While the media rumour mill churns out the latest list of clubs to express an interest in Nathan Tyson, it's his recent injury problem that is causing greater concern for many Wycombe followers. Tyson picked up a knee injury during the 3-2 victory at Mansfield but still managed to put in close to 90 minutes versus Wrexham the following Tuesday. It's understood that a X-Ray following the Wrexham game failed to show up the extent of the problem but alarm bells were ringing again after he was forced off after 45 minutes of Saturday's meeting with Chester City with a reoccurence of the injury. Despite these scares, Tyson's tenacity and previous rapid recovery rate means he is still favourite to start in Friday evening's meeting at League leaders Grimsby Town.
