'They All Count' Says Guy
3rd October 2012
ON-LOAN striker Guy Madjo notched his first goal for Argyle to earn The Pilgrims a well-deserved point at Wycombe on Tuesday night.Madjo, who has been borrowed from Aldershot Town, was given space to meet a well-timed cross from Alex MacDonald, and he nodded into the far corner right in front of the travelling Green Army.
In typical footballing style, Guy was quick to deflect the praise away from him and onto the team as whole.
“The most important thing was the point we got from the game,” he said, “It’s not the person who scores that matters, it’s the team.
“Obviously I’m happy because I scored my first goal of the season, but happy also because it’s a point away from home. One point away from is something rather than nothing.”
After the customary humility, Guy talked us through the goal, and insisted that now that the floodgates have been opened, he feels there are lots more goals in him.
“It was a good, quick ball from Macca, so credit to him,” said Guy, unable to shake the modesty. “And credit to the whole team, because it was a good build up to Macca, then from Macca to me.
“A good cross, and a good header. Even though some people said it was off my shoulder! But it doesn’t matter. The important thing was that it went in the net. They all count!
“When I headed it I knew it was in. You know as a striker that when you hit the right area then there’s no way the keeper is going to get there. When I headed it I was sure. Before it went in I was celebrating.
“It’s the first of many to come. I believe in myself. Now I’ve got that first one, there are many more to come.”
Madjo has now started four games for Argyle, the last three being partnered with Warren Feeney as a front pair. Guy believes that having played with Feeno a few times, an understanding is starting to develop.
He said: “It’s coming. Game after game we’re building it up. For sure, there is more to come.
“As a striker, when you play up front with anyone, you should understand basic things. Any striker should know how to play 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 and so on; they are basic things.
“Whoever you play up front with, you know that if one goes short then one goes long.”
