  1. Weve been saying for a long time now. 1 2 3 upfront which ever, if there is no service is makes no difference. Our midfield three and two wing backs, after the first ten mins, were awful. Have to add that the two up top were awful too !!!
  2. Forget the style of play you mention. When Conlon gets the ball he is suppose to play football. He has not done that.
  3. Could be that we only played a bottom six team. Poor team at that
  4. Dont believe that was a negative set up. 532 negative set up would have played Mills and Fitzpatrick. We had our best two full backs for attacking. We had two attacking midfielders We had two up front. Problem being we were awful, against a bottom six team
  5. Cannot fault Crookes tonight. Credit where it is due
  6. We had two forwards, three midfield men and two attacking wing backs. Only problem was they were all useless. Taylor might be lucky to play again after that performance. Conlon gone off completely Monty had a poor game Rodney once again looks less like a footballer than me. Please Mr Clarke GET RID !!!!
  7. Did say he has time on his hands and he deserves the chance but i dont see enough of a prospect in him.
  8. His interview today was exactly what i expected him to come out with. He would never slate anyone publicly after todays hard fought point. Point that we are desperate for. This is not his mess but he has to sort it out with the players he has available. Also think that if Monty had played against Wilkinson we could have had a defensive problem on our hands. Monty will not be able to stop himself from attacking, quite rightly, Crookes can only defend so i expected this choice at left back.
  9. New manager but same old performance. POOR At least Clarke will know what is needed after the next few games, if he doesnt already. Can see a minimum of 5 new players in our starting line up for next season. Plenty of stick for Guthrie. Hes not the top striker in the division but hes the best front player we have until Pope pushes him when fit. We still need to replace Pope before we write him off. Guthrie can score goals and has done but his goals scored were created by others. Cant remember too many chances he missed today. Give him a break. Hes the best we have for the next few ga
  10. Like i said, i cant take the credit for this drawing. It was my mate Jacko at school. Fifty years ago WOW. The drawing must have been from the picture above in the football mag Goal.
  11. My drawing of the legend Jesse James.
  12. Jamo and Pope were/are Vale through and through. For anyone who did not see Jamo play i would say that he had more heart for the Vale. More heart for the Vale than Popey and that takes some doing. Thats how special Jamo was and will always be to those who saw him.
  13. Talking of Mick's scarg. Can anyone remember 'Dancing Frank ' as Mick would call him.
  14. It didnt take Eric very long to get anywhere. Always a pub stop on the way and on way home too. Travellers Rest Buxton to Leek was a favourite for all games Yorkshire way. Best to have a nap on the way home and leave it to Eric.
  15. Weve got Micky Morris playing on the wing
  16. Two bad results for us tonight. How can Southend beat Newport ? Its up to us now on Saturday to do the same !!!
  17. Sad sad day. R I P John. Great memories from Jesse James at the Vale. Once trying to draw a picture of Jamo at school and my mate finished it for me. It was brill. Took it the Vale on a match day and i am sure it was you Ray who took it in dressing room and had Jamo sign it for me. Need to find that drawing it was brill. 19000 at Wrexham and finished 1 - 1 Sure there was 7000 Vale fans there. Went in car with Mick [ owd sage ], Joe Dodd, and Eric the driver [ not sure of last name, i think it was Smith ] See Joe up the Vale and remember Mick telling me that Eric
  18. I understand this fully. You could say that Rudge was an assistant to Pulis. Money to burn also helps to to take the strain off Pulis. Our situation i believe is the exact opposite. We , or i , assumed we were after the experienced manager. We now have the experience is the assistant role to the manager. Flitcroft did sat that the manager would: Have final say on all signings / Decide of team tactics n formations etc / select the team. This i find difficult to see being a success, especially if the new manager / head coach is not an experienced manager but someone who is learning the ga
  19. They were my comments on Hurst. Decent squad player, deserves a chance, cross with both feet. I added that i would like to see more of a goal threat from him. It may come, hope so but sometimes you see a player is short of something and j feel this could be his problem. Hope i am wrong but my thoughts on him. Certainly deserves his chance compared to the wide players we have had recently.
  20. Fair enough if i have missed that. My point is we need a bigger threat from him
  21. Its expensive getting rid of a manager AND HIS TEAM but once you dwcidd he is going then you need to see it through. No turning back. If you cannot afford then dont get rid and try sort ghe issue out another way, if possible.
  22. Surely that goes without saying. You cannot offer someone the manager role and they say your backroom team is ???? I would expect Carol to have issues if that is the case
  23. Decent squad player and worth persevering but still waiting for him to get a shot on goal and also score a goal. Yes he has crossed a few and with both feet but last few games hes been involved he seems to have created less chances.
  24. Agree with you but god i wish we had Tranmere's squad down at the Vale. New center back and not much else needed there.
  25. True. We know we cannot rely on Monty playing a full season. Gibbons we need to see. This season was a first but from now on we dont know.
