    Do you think we’re live tracking stats? Not saying we’re not I’m genuinely asking, because that would be a lot different from past approaches!

    I don’t know is the honest answer, I know they wear the vest during the games but not sure if they get any immediate / live feedback

    Was he actually injured enough to be brought off though? His reaction to getting subbed didn't suggest so.

    One thing is for sure, you can't bring on someone like Lloyd for Proctor unless you absolutely have no choice. They were always going to get well on top of us without having someone up there who can make it stick.

    Aren't all of the stats and in game numbers are being tracked these days?

    My guess is they saw his output fall through the floor and coupled with the injury didn't want to risk him.

    Hindsight and emotion makes it easy to say "That was the wrong thing to do"

    Cold hard assessment is what's needed... it wont work every time, but its the better approach.

  3. One reflection having been there is the oven that was the metal shed behind the goal...

    A huge advantage was gained at the coin toss.... Originally I thought the Vale had won the toss and turned them around. But on reflection, did they know just how hard it would be to pick out a high ball with the sun low in the sky in the 2nd half?

    I lost count of how many times they hoofed it up into the glare of the sun and it must have been a nightmare for the defence and Cov to pick it out of the sky.

    Small pitch, low sun, hoofball, up and under..... nightmare.

    There is one thing for certain you are going to find it very difficult to football your way out of this division. It’s all about height and pumping long balls into the box, we did not press enough yesterday to stop the barrage of long balls. Yesterday is a little reality check hope we can learn from it and push on, not too despondent but Barrow will be a good yard stick.

    Is this is true though?

    Aside from Cheltenham’s long throw being a factor, we’re the teams who went up last year “big, long ball merchants”

    Bolton, Cambridge and Cheltenham I would say no.

    Even Morcambe we’re more boringly organised than long ball brutes.

    Quoted as now being the richest club in Europe or even the whole of Football. So I would image their whole squad including the first team are now classed as Peasants that the Club can now afford to get rid of. Lol

    Add up the wealth of the owners of the ten next richest clubs and it still doesn’t get anywhere near to the same level as Newcastle.

    That's a defeat for us tomorrow then

    I’m hoping that our recent run of hoodoo breaking can continue!

    Swindon away - no problem

    Scunthorpe away - no problem

    MoM wins next game - 🤞🤞🤞

    Look at the wheels on Bobby Dazzler. That back slide will be his statue in a few years. Where is Crosby going? Lovely to see the bench erupt, including the lads who hadn't played.


    What an Evil man DC is... Purposefully ruining Speedy's grass.

    Add that to him being worse that Polpot in an interview and as gentle as Hannibal Lecter with some of our aging old pros last year.

    He should be locked up.


    In all seriousness ... Love this video.


    Trust the Pruhcess

    in DC we trust

    I think the Rochdale game was quite difficult to understand and dissect to be honest. I still think that was our best 25 minutes at home so far so, yet we then collapsed like a deck of cards and it’s hard to know whether to credit them (I think they are the best side we faced so far) or it was down to us mental, physically and/or tactically. You will always get more supporters trying to analyse things after a defeat irrespective of whether it’s Port Vale or Manchester City IMO.

    I’m not sure I saw much “analysis” in that thread

    Then Conlon runs off with it leaving Smith in his wake 🤣🤣🤣

    I’m not sure what Smith problem with us is… seems to always be on the wind up. He may do it to every set of fans for all I know but he comes across like a real numpty.

    When they score their first he runs over and pats Jones on the head and laughs in his face… Poundland Robbie savage behaviour which has backfired on him big time.

    Reading that i didn't realise they had kept 4 clean sheets on the bounce,makes it even better 🙂

    And we’re unbeaten away from home.

    We saw in the second half that they are no mugs and I expect them to be up and there abouts at the end of the season.

    So much for the vale to be proud of after that game… the first half in particular where we made them look relegation candidates.

    Yes they came back, and had the better of the second half, that’s what I would expect from a decent team.

    Most thing to be proud of was the character and fight in the squad… remember when we used to give leads away like sweets at Halloween? 

    Great fight… great belief.

    Trust the Pruhcess!!

    If this is the slow start that Clarke foreshadowed then this will be a very special season indeed

    Oh god I had forgotten how some people lost their marbles because DC said he sometimes started slow 😂😂😂

    Someone on here started trying to tell us that it gave the opposition the impetus and our lads would just not try!
