  1. Harry Panayiotou plays for them… after his unsuccessful loan spell with us he went on to have spells at Nuneaton, Aittitos Spata and Aldershot. I love Monty but have to agree he 100% has not taken a step up front the vale.
  2. Yes people, for the love of god, please only criticise players BEFORE they have kicked a ball for us!! That way it has the maximum chance of damaging their confidence, their feelings towards the club and potentially their performance. I’m not a fan of waiting until the player has left and then used his platform and status to undermine the club and divide the fan base. Get your timings right people. 😐
  3. Just watched the highlights back again… great to see Gibbo back and his effort that hit the post was beautifully struck! Thankfully the Longport Lampard banged it home anyway!
  4. Watching back the highlights this morning it was nice to see the tactics play out. They desperately wanted us to press them high all the time so they could play through us. DCs tactics of not over committing past the initial press from Rodney or proctor worked really well. We sat back and held a good shape until they approached the half way line and then the press was deactivated and we hunted in packs to snaffle a poor ball or individuals cutting out poor passes. Then play through the middle until space appears out wide for Woz or Rodney to attack space. Lovely Jubbly.
  5. Exactly this. Vale fans need a scapegoat… unfortunately some aren’t smart enough to realise the negative impact that has on the club they are fans of.
  6. No new rule… but I’m sure the FA may be considering it given how serious and important it seems to be to some on here. 😉
  7. Mansfield in double trouble tonight… a loss to Walsall and Clough in danger of getting them docked 3 points because of the FAs controversial new “don’t be mean to players” rule. Although he didn’t start speaking until the interviewer had finished every time. So apparently the FA are considering reducing the penalty to 2 points for being nice and polite… so that’s nice. DC needs to be careful after his “deadwood” comment… rumours that some of our old players were really really really upset means our punishment could be raised to 6 points.
  8. Love this… the lad is so genuine. Turning into a proper fans favourite. A poke in the eye for the couch scouts that wrote him off. won’t stop them doing it again to someone else though!
  9. Interesting comments from Dc in his post match. Asking fans not to make scapegoats of new players who will need time to settle in… good luck with that DC Cale fans need a boo boy and will eat one out even if we are playing well. I also liked his comment about Garrity doing everything he can to be a pro. He even has tests to make sure his nutrition is right and he is eating as good as he can… makes a change from a certain ex players “couple of pints on Saturday and Tuesday night but try dead hard on a Saturday”
  10. Great result… it will be quiet on here tonight 😂
  11. And some nice sh*thousery from Covolan… their forward steps across him as he is about to kick out of his hands. Cov hits the deck and gets him a booking (I think) but definitely wastes some time
  12. Well played by Covolan… ball over the top and he has come out and sniffed out the danger
  13. Rodney just rounded the keeper and couldnt keep his feet! Should be 2 He is playing well, they can’t handle his pace and power
  14. Tough away trip today… I would take a draw
  15. Have taken some time to reflect before posting on this one. Yesterday was not good enough. But we need to frame the problem properly. The problem is not that those that played are not good enough… they proved against FGR they have it in them. The problem is not that recruitment was wrong… lots to counter that argument including Proctor, Garrity, Jones etc. Even Johnson played so well against Sheff Wednesday that he was being heralded as a beast. The problem is not that we have a leaky defence, the previous 5 games prove that argument to be wrong. The problem is that this group of players need to find consistency… YESTERDAY some players had bad games, YESTERDAY the defence was leaky. Its a new squad, consistency needs to be found and it needs to happen quickly. The overreaction meltdown from some is expected. Others need to breath, take a step back and not project a doomsday scenario.
  16. How embarrassing. Although when you list your interests as “stirring the do-dah” on your profile as a 75 year old man, what else are we to expect. Bitterness will eat you alive people.
  17. This took a few edits as I kept remembering people!! haha
  18. 6 less this year if we consider Burgess and Whitehead out of the squad The replacements are: Covolan - Brown Stone - Visser Cass - Mills Martin - Brisley Johnson - Crookes Jones - Fitzpatrick Benning - Monty Amos - RCG Walker - Joyce Pett - Oyeleke Garrity - Trickett Smith Politic - McKirdy Proctor - Pope Wilson - Guthrie Lloyd - Swan Not replaced: Scott, Burgess, Whitehead, Cullen, Olagunju, Theo Different people will have different opinions on which team has the better players this year vs last. But Im giving it a clear clear win for this years squad in terms of who I would rather have.
  19. The comments on Doncaster's release list tweet are dominated by people disappointed that Amos wasn’t offered a deal.
