  1. Robbed a point today against the better team. In the cold light of day tomorrow it will be a good point earned by an injury savaged team against a team who have some very good players. Before the Newport game I said I would snap peoples hands off for 4 points from Newport, Plymouth, Exeter and Mansfield. The fact it feels slightly disappointing to only of got 4 points, with the injuries we have, is testament to how far we have come from last year. i also said I would judge Askey and this squad after 10 games... we currently sit 13th having had a very tough start fixture wise. Slow and steady improvement... just what the doctor ordered! Lets hope we can get the players back and we go again for the next set of games!

  3. From what I have heard Aspin relied heavily on Brabin... there was an obvious downturn in form after he left. I have also heard Aspin spent a lot of time “hiding” in his office. In my opinion, Askey is, and will prove to be, a better manager. I do however agree that Aspin was hamstrung by working for our indefensible disgrace of an owner (although some tried... not to be forgotten)
  4. Another way of saying that is with a very depleted squad we reduced the unbeaten league leaders into looking only slightly better than <ovf censored> thays a game we wouldn’t have been anywhere near last year... this squad and it’s performances are far far better than last year. Slow and steady improvement!
  5. An expected result with an unexpected amount of hope until their subs changed the game. We showed some good heart... it was back to the walls but it was an ask too far.
  6. Gibbons has a case for being player of the season so far... missing him makes a tough ask even more difficult. Lets hope the keyboard warriors cut us some slack tonight if things don’t go well!
  7. Their manager has turned down an approach from an unnamed team today (I assume Lincoln)... could it be a distraction they didn’t need, could he be negotiating... who knows!
  8. Just seen the behind the goal footage of Smiths header... Bennett reactions and movement are superb!!!
  9. Toughest game of the season so far... due to the opposition, distance to travel mid week and injuries to contend with. I think this will be a game too far and I’m not holding out much hope of getting anything out of it. As mentioned by others... that will at least give some of OVFs more negative posters to have a say after yesterday’s brilliant performance!
  10. I think he was the ref at Crewe yesterday who had another absolute shocker
  11. Yeah I saw on the highlights and changed my mind completely... live I thought he had been bundled over but after watching again it wasn’t a foul. I wouldn’t say it was a dive though... looks like they just came together and Bennett tried to lift it over the keeper and got it wrong and ended up on the deck.
  12. Just watched the extended highlights on iPlayer... Bennett’s assist and his Footwork for the Monty chance are exceptional!
  13. Attention in most cases! There will be a fair few that don’t comment tonight or throw a single lazy comment in so they don’t have to engage! Brilliant today Vale and a great start to the season!
