  1. Poor poor performance… you could tell that we have played once in what seems like forever and they have had 3 or 4 games to get back up to speed. Season is a long way from over but if performances don turn around quickly it won’t be long before it is!
  2. Looks like Taylor has a long term injury then... cant see him being offloaded now.
  3. Couldn't disagree with this more.... This opinion is everything that's wrong with football. Come into the club, clear out the deadwood, completely revolutionise the football department., set it up for long term sustainable success for the first time in years..... and call it a failure if you don't get promotion at the very first time of asking. If it was that easy, everyone would do it because the payoff would make it worth the money. A very very bad take on the situation.
  4. The Magic now is that we have so many options 3-5-2 Cov Cass Smith Hall Gibbo Hussey Pett Garrity Conlon Wilson Proctor 3-4-3 Cov Cass Smith Hall Gibbo Pett Conlon Hussey Worrall Wildon Politic 4-4-2 Cov Gibbo Smith Hall Hussey Worrall Pett Conlon Poilitic Wilson Proctor 4-3-3 Cov Gibbo Smith Hall Hussey Garrity Pett Conlon Worrall Wilson Politic 4-2-3-1 Cov Gibbo Smith Hall Hussey Pett Conlon Worrall Garrity Politic Wilson And even more exciting, dependent on the formation is we have a genuine bench which would include a combination of: Stone, Martin, Jones, Benning, Walker, Taylor, Proctor, Harrat, Edmonson, Rodney, Amoo, Politic, Lovely Jubbly
  5. Exactly this… shows how far our mentality has shifted since DC has come in. From praying we don’t get relegated out of the football league to potential immediate promotion. Losing in the playoffs would be a HUGE disappointment… but it would have to go down as a great start to the long term process the club is building.
  6. Totally agree! Get behind the new lads and give them the confidence that we are with them! Whats unfortunately more likely to happen is Hall’s first header will go out of touch and he will be scapegoated and written off immediately by a bunch of armchair vale fans desperate for someone to bray at for the next 6 months! Prove me wrong please!
  7. Hussey on indirect free kicks Conlon on direct free kick drool
  8. That’s a signing that shows real intent. UTV
  9. Dembele isnt being released... he's on the transfer list because they want to get some cash for him before his contract runs out in the Summer. A number of £4m was mentioned a few weeks back when Celtic and Rangers asked about him
  10. Depends really… if we receive a bid that we can’t turn down and reinvest the cash to further improve the team… isn’t that the exact message we want to give?
  11. Some interesting thing on the pod this morning. @stupers let me know if I have miss-interpreted any of this: Legge wasn’t fit / well which only happened in the week. They thought he would be available to play hence why they let Johnson go before the game. The Rumours about Rodney may have some legs… he hasn’t left already but there is chance he may be going. Someone at the club is miffed off about sprosons comments about Taylor
  12. Elliot Harrison signed for Fleetwood this morning and scored in his debut
  13. Certainly haven’t embarrassed ourselves there… good work out and match fitness into the legs. Brilliant for Harratt, should give him some confidence! League results have mainly gone out way too! UTV
  14. Their fans on their forum all saying he should be given a chance in their first team. Get behind the lad… his first game may well be against premier league defenders… it would be very “port vale” to get on his back on social media or on here if he doesn’t score. Welcome Kian! UTV
  15. I remember of the the videos after we won a game he had been dropped for after playing the previous few ... he celebrated like mad and seemed genuinely passionate about the result. Seems like a really good bloke and I wish him well.
  16. I can still see Whitehead being moved on this month... just a hunch but don't see him adding anything to the promotion push
  17. Trade off there is that Cass plays the overlapping CB so well which has lead to a number of goals by him being allowed to get up the pitch. Don't disagree that we would benefit from a man mountain who could command the area though.
  18. I like the idea of someone like Hussey coming in... proven winner, experienced, promotion under his belt.... a bit like the signing of Purse in the promotion season. Its difficult to say who is replacing who because as DC says in his interview, there is a lot of the window left to go and we have no idea who else is coming or going.
  19. The press are saying that a few league 1 clubs are after Harrison including Fleetwood who have just received a nice lump sum for their centre half. He’s never been prolific but clearly adds something as he has played at a higher level. Hopefully he remembers his time with DC fondly and that gives us a chance!
  20. This concept is best demonstrates by Brentford when Villa Poached Dean Smith… their fans made a comment that all Villa had done was take one small piece of a huge machine which could easily be replaced by that machine. I remember thinking at the time how good that must feel!
  21. Next big thing who lost his way and started falling down the leagues via Aberdeen… sounds familiar and hopefully the same outcome!
  22. To add to the views of Leeds fans... I work with one who said pretty much the same as those mentioned already. "Explains why his Fleetwood loan was cut short. Wasn't getting much game time there. Was touted as pushing Bamford in the first team when we were in the championship, but never pushed on due to injuries." Sounds like a decent enough replacement for Lloyd.... an young player with some league experience with a potential upside if he settles well. Welcome Ryan.
