  1. Spot on Our mistakes are school boy stuff all over the pitch AND OFF IT. Ton Conlon our only true and good footballer. Guthrie needs to play every gane before we comment but HE NEEDS SERVICE. I thought he did o.k. today with effort buit did miss the one sniff of a chance with the header he never got to. Hope Gibbons plays every game from now on. WE CANNOT PLAY MILLS AGAIN Hope Legge leaves and we are able to sign a center back. If not we are stuck with Smith and Brisley ?? Dont believe we can expect the owners to do any other than wait until the summer with an app
  2. TylerB Dont like your choice of words or your style but BUT i do agree in almost all the above. Smith, Burgess keep as squad players and i am a big critic of Smith. Guthrie has to be given ten games before any comments can be made. Our service to the FRONT MAN must be the worst in the football league but i would still play him before the others we have available. *** Leave the owners out of it. Dread to think where we would be now and that worries me. I am not one who will run off up to Anfield or wherever. WE NEED THEM MORE THAN EVER NOW. What a job they have on th
  3. CD I am grateful for everything we get but need to highlight that " Conlons superb goal " needs to be grouped with Walsall's three goals " will not score an easier goal " Agree entirely on the set up from Walsall management team. Work hard, effort, go for goal with three goal threats. Defence they have to work extra hard because i feel that is their weakness. Two full backs more like big donkeys, very little skill going forward but did stop our attacks. Then again it was the Vale against them today. Its EASY.
  4. Correct. We probably panicked and signed up all players that we could from last season. We were all happy with that but we needed 3 or 4 players to strengthen last seasons first 11. Instead we signed several squad players, no where near good enough and we have gone backwards this season. Add to that Brown,Legge,Joyce,Pope all 12 months further down the line to their end of career season. We have messed up big style this season, thats for sure.
  5. To see youre name is enough Ray, i get the picture 🤣🤣
  6. Sorry Osp have to disagree. Their two full backs looked like big donkeys. Jules and White. Walsall are very good going forward with Adeybayor, Gordon, McDonald etc but their defence lets them down. Dont forget that their defence today played against our wide men , midfield men and two fullbacks. We are poor. Me and you could play full back against the Vale. What also helped them was the workrate and effort from the whole team but above all we are shocking going forward and dont offer enough threat on opposition goal. Conlon excepted.
  7. We have signed Taylor, massive signing for us to get him. Guthrie, desperate for a center forward. Our owners have done more than expected for Jan. I do agree though that we must get a new manager. He will need to start again in the summer.
  8. Agree At best squad players. We may have been unlucky with Gibbons and his injury. Usually his cover would be a couple of suspension and the odd game or so. Not left back though. If we were playing monty then his cover would be playing 15 games minimum and Fitz is nowhere near good enough. Again probably unlucky that both have played a dozen or so games but it has showed up how poor they are.
  9. Taylor been rubbish this afternoon. Hope he improves. Cant get any worse. Needs to put effort in too
  10. Would still be happier with two up front and only 1 wide. Three in middle inc. Conlon and Taylor will give us the extra forward player when we break.
  11. Make youre mind up. We are an awful team you say and now you say the game was there to be won against a top seven team without doubt at end of season. Maybe a draw is all we should expect today. We are not the strongest team when first 11 all fit, today a draw is a great result and we still have five players in starting 11 that we all know are not good enough
  12. Be interesting to see what happens next week with Pope, Robinson, Cullen
  13. He is friends with Danny Pugh ?
  14. Wouldnt be surprised if we dont see Pope again in a Vale shirt.Hope i am wrong. Hope he is playing again by March. Cannot see an agreement being made to keep him next season
  15. Terrific signing. Just what we want.Young striker with pace. Looks good in the air. Scores goals with both feet. Been around a couple of seasons, so knows what to expect.To me there is more optimism with this signing than with Taylor. We now have Rodney, Taylor and Guthrie, all the same mould of player andjust what we needed 6 months ago. Need to get behind them now. Hope there is a good option to make the deal permanent if successful for the next 3 months. Why cant everyone leave well alone and make comments when we have seen him play for the Vale. Why cant we just get beh
  16. Worrall would have missed, in my opinion. He does miss those chances. Without question Worrall would be in my current first eleven. As a creator of chances he is excellent. It still doesnt hide the fact that he is not a regular goalscorer.
  17. That for me is the big change to come, hopefully. I dont believe 4 3 3 is the way to play. Two wingers dont give us overall balance in the team, attacking and defending. Two up front is a must. 352 532 442 whatever suits the players we have but 433 does not.
  18. He creates chances , cannot argue, he works tirelessly. We need him in the team.Just wish he could also score his good chances that come his way. Think of the extra points we would have. Still say this is why he is with us and has never moved further up the leagues. Stats can say many things, good or bad, depending on what you want out of them.
  19. Rubbish post. You obviously dont like Carol or Askey, probably dont even like the Vale.
  20. Yes but also if he misses a goal then that means the team is not scoring.
  21. Agree entirely and have commented on this for a long while. This maybe the reason why his career has never progressed better than being at the Vale for the last few years. He is one on the team sheet every week for me but knowing this we need to find goalscorers not the players we currently have. It makes me believe that for goalscorers you have to spend money.
  22. Agree with Worral comment. As for Askey it cannot mean Robinson / McKirdy. They are not part of squad today and surely they are already listed to go, hopefully, so he would forget about them.
