  1. I’d be tempted to keep the same team that started v Swindon in the last game. Anyone know what time turnstiles open?
  2. Gibbos been making those kind of runs and linking with Worrall with ease for a few years, it’s almost second nature to them both. There was an identical move between them both not long before we scored. I agree with previous posts about him being right sided centre half could rein him in a bit. But it may be the best of a bad situation as at least we have 2 players either side of the central centre half that can get forward.
  3. We’ve probably got our retained list ready to go already. It’s just had to be delayed by 2 weeks.

  5. What an unbelievable night of emotion that was. We played really well from the off. We are at our best playing on the front front like that and Swindon struggled to handle us in that opening 20 mins and thankfully we got the early goal to get us back in it. I singled out Worrall and gibbo at half time last night, but to a man the whole team were immense. Tactically the manager got it right with the selections and how we played. We limited them to hardly any chances too. The penalty shoot out was something else. We were dead and buried with the 2 misses and to turn it around in such a fashion is just beyond words, that’s what made it so special because we were on our way out. The sheer poetry of Mckirdey missing was written in the stars. The crowd and atmosphere was the best for a long time, really good to see us turn up and back the team all the way through in a huge game and the players responded big time. Not sure it’s sunk in yet. I just hope we can go one more time.
  6. Carol said we’d get 25000 when she was talking in the valiant suite after the game.
  7. Good first half that. Some really stand out performances, especially Worrall and gibbons down the right. We’ve pressed well too. Just need that second goal.
  8. FFS getting the potential negatives and what ifs in early then.
  9. Gibbo smith and hall are currently doing drills as the 3 centre halves.
  10. Usual formation with wing backs. Bar proctor it’s the same formation and team that finished Sundays game. stone gibbo smith hall worrall Pett Garrity benning taylor Harratt Wilson
  11. Probably because the last 2 managers play systems that don’t accommodate a player who you need to give a free(ish) role to and not expect him to tracking back all game. He needs to be allowed to do what he wants IMO and then you get the best out of him.
  12. Bit of a combination for that. Smiths terrible control and touch to concede the corner. Gibbo loses Mckirdey for a second and Wilson isn’t the man you want putting his head on the line on the front post either. I thought 5 for gibbo was harsh tbh, but then again probably a 6, one of our only outlets who kept going for us and was keeping their wing back in their half more than he was in ours I felt. Worrall was probably more a 4 too, really poor again. Garrity was ineffective in his role as well.

  14. That’s pretty sobering to think that gibbo is the last one to make it and we’ve had no one in what 5 years since he came through.
  15. I think smith and gibbo will be offered but I think there will still be interest from elsewhere for them to weigh up.
  16. Popes interview has caused no long lasting issues or fan divisions (bit over dramatic that phrase). Flitcroft is heading up recruitment and he got stick on here for that, the recruitment of certain players. Who cares what someone says on social media? I’m sure you’ll find plenty of people on there who have a dislike for various players or staff at vale, but that’s not representative of the fan base, it’s just a tiny percentage. Everything pope said in that interview was because of his experience with him, what he said I also had told to me by some other players and staff, but that’s football, loads of players get promised a deal and then for one reason or another it doesn’t materialise so the club moves on. And we have moved on. I haven’t read what he said about Mckirdey, but he’s probably right about him. Give him a free role, don’t tie him up too much to a system or expect too much hard work from him going backwards and you’ll get the best out of him. Askey and Clarke don’t play players like that, that’s their system and their prerogative. As a result Mckirdey sulked about it around the place and we got rid. Some managers will accept the negatives about a player to take the positives. We didn’t. Roberts is a whole different issue that isn’t comparable, off the field problems that have no place in a footballers life saw the end of his career here.
  17. Christ it was throwing it down, the ball was wet as were the kits, you could see him asking the bench for a towel because he couldn’t dry it. Suicide passes? Don’t recall those. They’re all professional players who will have the ball under any circumstances and pressure, just because we’d <ovf censored> our pants having the ball so tight up at powerleague doesn’t mean it’s a problem for them. He kept going all game for me and was always an outlet.
  18. I thought we’d sold more than that when the club announced 500 going to general sale on Friday.
  19. We all see a different game I thought gibbo was one of the few players looking to get us on the ball, go forward and give us an outlet. Never stopped.
  20. What was the vale attendance, I couldn’t hear it in the ground.
  21. You can tell we are missing conlon in how we play, especially in the final third. He was key to us linking wing backs with forwards. Maybe they thought Jake Taylor could be that player but he got injured? But either way since Christmas our style of play has changed drastically. It’s almost like now there’s a lot of expectation on gibbo or Worrall to do something on their own.
  22. Have to agree, far more was happening for us down the left with gibbo showing much more than worrall was.
  23. Of course the goals deserved. We created it and took the chance. Don’t know why fans are so negative and down on things when we do something decent.
  24. Still in it and that’s all we can ask for. Thought only a handful of players looked to be up for it wanting the ball and trying to drive us on, hall, gibbo, Garrity, Wilson. Disappointed by our right hand side in Worrall, thought he hardly drove us forward at all. Was Charsley injured?
