  1. Scott Brown wastes a lot of time. Saw the ref tell him but after that some refs will let it happen and add time on
  2. Thank you. Pope has to be number one. Hes not the answer and we will not be promoted with him but he is head and shoulders better than Cullen, Robinson, Rodney. They are the problem and Askey signed them so Askey has failed us there. Cullen looks a sunday morning player Robinson looks a tidy player but has to have everything done for him. Rodney will never be a decent level footballer. All three are letting us down this season
  3. Tranmere wil score 20 goals more than us. Guaranteed
  4. Give him a rocket and tell him to play his heart out. Askey did and so did Legge Unfortunately Legge is slow to react to a tackle and off he goes
  5. In Askey i hope ? Yes we are being let down by some of our more professional and elder players. Askey has let us down with some poor signings, who i believe are playing aswell as they can but they are not good enough. Robinson, Rodney, Burgess
  6. Perhaps that was his good spell in his career. He wont be leading scorer here. Waste of a signing for me.
  7. He needed to tackle but not like that. he is too slow, full stop
  8. Askey was criticised last week for not bringing on Brisley at the end. just to waste time and help the back four. I think it was right but take Robinson off and leave Monty up front. Tired or not he has more heart and commitment
  9. Saw that too. Thats where you help to defend from the front. We needed that break and Robinson failed us. Not the only time he let us down either.
  10. Correct. You cannot take Legge off because he has had a booking. Between bookings he has had a good game. Strong and dominant but once faced by a player with the ball at his feet he is not the best. Hes now on 4 yellows so do we not play him again so as to stop a further suspension. His second yellow showed how slow he is to react to the ball being on the floor and also showed why he must be replaced this season. No more talk of another contract, not as the main center back anyway. Brisley now has his chance. Good performance on Tuesday and lets leave Legge off until the new year, ho
  11. Who would you leave out ? I have always thought that,with the players we have, if we could only play 12 in the team we would be better suited.
  12. Not sure of your age TB but you either : never watched during the Rudge years accepted him because we were successful, in the end were totally wrong then as you probably are here with Askey. There are and will always be managers with totally different characters. There is no point attacking him because you dislike his character. I am certain Askey is here to stay for at least another 12 months, without something disastrous happening, so you need to accept him or leave the Vale alone until we are successful if it really gets to you the way you are coming over on here. Just
  13. Monty as a full back, even in 433, pushes forward. He plays a pass and continues to run past for the return ball. This is something that our midfield does not do. They are very static and this is the problem. We need full backs, midfield and win gers to be far more attack minded
  14. We have no midfielder capable of that. Taylor was a lucky find for us. Only Montano is consistent to get up the pitch as a full back. Add to that our wingers blow more cold than hot, whichever two that are picked
  15. Agree entirely. Joyce is a waste of a player for us. Most teams play without this holding defensive player. They play with two, of which either can go forward. What makes it worse for me is that the other two midfield men are not creative, threatening enough. Taylor was a lucky find for us last season. I honestly believe Conlon should be looking at playing in the Joyce role. If he could do the covering role he would no doubt be capable of playing a forward ball to help create forward play.
  16. If you pick your strongest eleven out of our squad. Play the every game !! What would you honestly give them for a goals tally based on what you have seen and previous seasons in their career. Will be interesting and i will bet it doesnt give us enough for promotion
  17. We play one because Askey insists on playing a defensive midfielder to protect the back four. Without this i think all the criticism would be on the back four not being good enough
  18. Like i said i think he was extremely lucky last season with Taylor having a good run for goals
  19. Mckirdy is still to show us anything. Montano, against this team and formation , was a must to start. Askey failed big time for me. Far too negative. All this negativity and we have a team with no drive, no creativity and no goals. We need all the help we can to be positive and score goals.
  20. We havent dominated from start to finish. We have had all the ball but you do not dominate a game when possession that you have is probably all in the middle part of the pitch. We never threatened them enough all game, like you say barely tested the keeper. Not sure we should change Askey at this time. Its a strange season. I am sure we wont change Askey
  21. I agree with you over Askey. This season is very strange. Disagree completely on the rest. Scunthorpe no different to any average team in this league who we beat easily. Its not the opposition its our own performances that matter and i dont believe Askey knows what he will get from whoever he picks, no matter how many changes he makes. What a great balanced squad we have, eveyryone was happy but we have 4 wingers and all four are more likely to have a stinker than win us the game. 4 strikers and again all more than likely to fail before winning us a game. Pope is still the pick for m
  22. Short of confidence you say!!! Goals make confidence. We dont make goals
