  1. as ive said before im not hitting the panic button. were doing okay certainly not as bad as people would say. the phone call on grumble and grumble regarding wanting pope back was an absolute joke. that time has been and gone. tom has been an excellent servant but hes moved on now and we need to be looking at better. we were flying until injuries struck all in the same position. something ive never seen happen before. we will be ok. maybe the automatics are out of reach but certainly not the play offs and we seem to have stopped the rot. keep the faith.
  2. having watched the clip of the sending off incident . it seems very wishy washy to me but ive yet to find anything that was " dangerous" in the said incident. covolan made 2 outstanding saves prior to the incident and while his antics in early games (trying to take players on etc) has largely vanished from his game he needs to learn from this. and quickly. back the lad. hes a foreign keeper in a foreign country and he deserves a chance. ive seen loads of people saying on social media he should never play for the club again. i disagree. people make mistakes whether he learns from them will make or break his career at vale park. the last thing he wants is the fans turning on him when he does play again. as for the rest of the team they never left the dressing room. shows we havent played a league game since december 11. and it showed. im not hitting the panic button over one game.
  3. i knew DC was the perfect fit for us last season. some people just fit into a club some dont. Yesterday was a great win and to come back after that first half shows some guts. Officials were their usual substandard selves. and yes that was a blatant pen we were denied but hey ho. Would love a tie at home this time but ill settle for liverpool away. Side note. anyone else noticed Lee Blakeman hasnt been commentating on vale games since weve been doing so well. what an utter UTTER c0ckw0mble. Man i despise that stain on the blanket of creation.
  4. that was definately one game to forget at VP today. we are desperate for a striker in the window. im just glad we stopped the rot setting in against a very poor side ( we werent much better ) but its as vital a 3 points as we will get this season. next.
  5. i think tin pot is quite light i would call them much worse. and definately in my top 10 sh1thouse sides of the decade. right near the top too.
  6. just a day to forget. we will win more than we lose this year. and i hope we smash those tin potters in the home game. im sure theyll bring 4 fans with them. and dont get me started on that awful ref. in the words of the great Rob Page. We dust ourselves down and go again .
  7. resisted temptation until now to post. but heres my brief take on things. that first 20 minutes v dale was the best ive seen in years. the remaining 70 + added on time was the worst. obviously a new team that is simply not clicking but will do with game time. the team and players need time. you cannot simply throw 15 new players into a team and expect them to play like theyve been playing together for years. this is a squad in transition and from what ive seen were a mid table team this season.
  8. just a shame he spends more time injured than monty
  9. ive got a feeling clarke wont get rid of as many as we think....that said....my retained list would be as follows..... Brown. Taylor. Gibbo. Monty. Amoo, Hurst. Conlon. Smith. Wozza. Pope . Super Dave however smith and amoo have had very average seasons and they would only make squad players currently. so thats the task facing our new manager.
  10. this may come as bit of a shock to some of you but im happy with the latest announcements. however im staying firmly grounded over them as i dont think this is going to be a quick fix and the problems flutcroft and clarke have to deal with are going to remain for at least another 12 months. fair play to them for taking on this poisoned chalice. they have my full backing/support - lets just hope they can turn this club around. its a mammoth task.
  11. yes but proof the club can achieve if run properly. wycombe lincoln yeovil have all done far better than us in the last 15-20 years and they are no bigger by any sense of the imagination. get a proper manager and let him build a team.
  12. im assuming you never saw them at their peak in the late 80s early 90s? that was truly a great footballing side pushing the likes of liverpool everton and leeds! to the limit. the club is a non league joke at the moment and it needs a MASS clearout. but like most people have said its going to take years to recover from the smurf debacle. hes the cause of all this not carol and kevin.
  13. and until that changes everyones saturdays are going to be ruined every week for the immediate future.
  14. worrall is worth holding onto. but there are a large proportion of this squad which need offloading with haste. the back 4 can get in the bin now.
  15. where do i start with this shambles of a club. from top to bottom its a disgrace. plain amateurism.
  16. thats only been happening because the managers have been so p155 poor. making the same mistakes over and over again. if the owners bring in yet another manager with little or no experience then its going to happen all over again.
  17. ill throw mannys name onto that list. hes had more than enough time but ongoing injuries mean hes stealing a wage and it wont get any better. hes the clubs new sicknote. which is a shame because there is real talent there . we just dont get to see it more than 5 times a season.
