  1. Thought the lad played very well on Saturday, very positive with the ball, committed… if he’s going to play that role at this level, needs to work on his overlap and crossing into dangerous areas
  2. I feel the players having to apologise to Carol part way through the Askey departure, has something to do with why some, whom might have otherwise been offered a contract, have now departed the fold. Trust in the leadership.
  3. After the shocking form served up by many of those players, a throughly good clear out was always on the cards. There are many bad eggs in that old group.... why would you go and apologize to Carol? Well done Clarke lad! It’s about time someone has the balls to sort out the mess! Bruno levels of signings, let’s just hope we can all hit the ground running!
  4. Good move for both parties, wish him all the very best, couple of years security with a good contract, top draw player on his day and a great bloke!
  5. Too many passengers yet again, gutless performance... living in hope that Tom pope comes back into the side soon, to breed some true Vale fan fight into some of those spineless players. I really can’t believe that they can play like that, they are playing got their livelihoods and no player surely wants a ‘relegation to non-league’ on their CV? I wouldn’t pay any of them after yesterday. Why is the captain of the club, not playing his guts out? He was given the armband for the way he plays.... simply looks like he’s going through the motions, does not deserve the armband at present! Get a grip Clarke, this is disgraceful!
  6. Much more endeavour tonight in the sense of having more of the ball, more effort, but all it did for me was heighten the fact that our forward line is absolutely dross - Guthrie, Robinson, swan to a degree... but at least the lad has scored. Other than the Conlan shot at the very end, I can’t remember their keeper making a decent save? Shocking really!
  7. Browns good at coming off his line, he showed that yesterday... but was then like a rabbit or the headlights of a robin reliant....
  8. Did anyone see Guthrie or Robinson yesterday? I’ve watched the highlights back... hoping I’d get a glimpse of their striking prowess, not a jot! Defending (defenders) aside for a second, our desire from front to the midfield is woeful!!! Look at Joyce and taylor just before the cross comes in for the 2nd goal, then look at both of them for the 3rd goal..... I pick these pair out but they are all the same, there’s a complete lack of desire from players to stick with their man and/or get out to the ball and take some responsibility! They are all feeing very sorry for themselves and passing the buck to someone else instead of picking up the man themselves! It’s a very sorry state of affairs and the bunch of them will be in the non league or without a club come the start of next season. They all look way short of match sharpness, but you get that when you’re feeling down and out! Wake up with bunch of useless clowns! This is our club and we want effort, desire, determination, quality on the ball, take responsibility! If I pulled on that shirt I’d give a damn sight more desire that you bunch of ordinary boot cleaners. What We’d give to be back in that stadium to let you all know what we thought, you are privileged to do the job you do and you are sure as hell privileged to he playing for this great club, show some heart or get out of our club! Totally Disgusted in that group of players!
  9. For me there are too many excuses been thrown out by the club... injuries, just not dropping for us, better quality in the final 3rd, giving the effort blah blah blah Fact is we keep conceding, players are not working hard enough defensively to block crosses, to pick up men on attacking throw ins, to get out on the 25-30 yard mark to close down more quickly, stop teams playing We are utterly deluded at the moment, not enough all over the pitch! Never mind the final 3rd.... But let’s talk about the final 3rd... what has Guthrie and Robinson offered, they are both atrocious, they are strikers for gods sake - be brave and have a bloody shot! Not one is taking accountability in the side, have a pop boys!!! And the anticipation on the 2nd and 3rd ball, playing on the oppositions 1st touch.... We are miles off and all I see is the team crawling deeper and deeper into their shell! It’s blindingly obvious, I really do wonder when they do the analysis what they are picking up on???? Non league here we come... I don’t see that Clarke has made any difference at this stage, other than to give those who ‘were’ out of the picture another chance.... if anything we are more in the shell now than we were before... at least we looked like scoring (of sorts) I honestly cannot see where is goal is going to come from If you don’t shoot boys, you ain’t going to score and you certainly ain’t going to win! Very disappointed
  10. Has Guthrie had another shot, other than the 1 on 1 game before last? Awful stuff... Robinson what has he offered... never noticed he played against Salford that’s how bad is was
  11. Free fall? It’s not looking anymore positive.... absolutely zero cutting edge again...
  12. Anyone fancy watching paint dry? Would be much better than the last 2 uneventful performances going forward
  13. Sounds great that we have a longer term plan, let’s see where it goes! We were all spitting when we thought we’d missed out on Flitcroft because we supposedly ‘couldn’t afford him’ He’s now got a key role at the club and some are spitting feathers.... can never win. I like the ambition of the talk track about being a Championship club.
  14. Hardly has what you would call a successful managerial career. If it were to be him, it shows a lack of ambition for me, the most important position at the club
