    Fantastic result. These are the kind of wins that teams who make the top 7 will get. Really feels like things are coming together so once again great credit to DC and the team for all their hard work.

     

    Agreed these are the games that you have to get a result if you have ambitions to get out of this awful division, still very early days but the signs are that there and momentum is building.

  2. Good result, a hard working performance against a team we would have struggled against in the past, love the game management as well, not to everybody's taste but personally I love it, it's about time we dished it out a bit.

    Long way to go and the signs are there, but lets not get carried away, remember that lot down the road were crowned champions last week.

    I thought we did what we had to do in the 2nd half, no need to go gung ho when you go 2 up so well done DC and the boys more of the same please.

    The coverage on RS has now become farcical, I cut them slack due to that lot down the road having a bigger fanbase, in my mind it would be ridiculous to have the same amount of coverage as them BUT the coverage tonight has been non existent and dare I say almost deliberate, Smith Johnson and Pejic all going on and on and on , I got the feeling that anything or anyone but don't mention Port Vale, I also know Carl only gets in touch when we lose but on my reckoning 50 minutes in before a mention is pushing the boundaries of fairness, come on Vale get promoted and embarrass them. 

    Carl was on in the first 10 minutes. Mainly still moaning but at least he acknowledged the win today

    Oops my mistake still doesn't alter the terrible coverage, I'll stick to Ale and Vale.

    My memory isn't what it should be but I have warm memories of Boulton and Wilson as our full back pairing in the late sixties.

    I'm sure Ron Wilson scored a goal from about 40 yards in one game but maybe my memory ia adding a few yards with every passing year!

    Great times with the 69-70 Promotioon team, of which Ron was a major part, alongside Clinton, Johnny King and Roy Sproson in the back four that year that went 19 games unbeaten at the start of the season.

    Nice to see Ron looking so well. 

    A combative and hard working left back. Always gave us 100%. A fans' favourite.

    Good summing up Sage,69-70 season is my favourite period obviously if you could watch a game from that period it would be dire compared to todays offerings but I have to say that team ran through a brick wall for the club. and it's very boisterous supporters.

    just to say to the imboscile  in the paddock who shouted at the top of his voice "switch your f------ phone off  ,during the minutes silence, to someone who had just probably forgot, you set a wonderful example to all the young kids sitting in the paddock ! i am amazed no one has commented on his actions.

    My 7 year old Grandson commented that he shouldn't use language like that.....Very embarrassing having to explain that those kinds of words are unacceptable. but you will hear them at football.

  7. Everyone has different opinions don't they ? My two pennoth worth, for what it's worth, is midfield is not getting hold of the ball and dictating play, basically once they settled down after 20 minutes  Rochdale's  No 7 and 18  had the run of Vale Park, they had acres of space and they used it to their advantage and that puts us on the back foot and chasing the game.

    I really hate these port Vale fans that come out of the woodwork when we lose. It's embarrassing. 

    I find it more embarrassing that ex players have to put the boot in, at least Yates and Birchall give considered opinion not clouded by prejudice.

  9. What is it with the Vale and letting expectation weigh them down ? I'm getting sick and tired of being let down when there's expectation in the air.

    The service and naming all those we have lost was done brilliantly, the first 15 minutes we played as well as I have seen for a number seasons and then pop the bubble bursts and we let everyone down, same against Tranmere a bigger gate than normal and pop the balloon deflates, why can't we ever capitalise on the feel good factor.

    Perhaps there's a curse when there's a crowd present we seemed to win games when the ground was empty.

    I haven’t listened to the podcast so I won’t comment on what Tom Pope has said. Does he mention that he had dragged the club’s name through the mud with his stupidity on social media?  Did he mention that the club spent a fortune on legal fees supporting him during his last social media issue?  Did he mention that he refused to take the advice of those legal people in his response to the case?  He reckons he has the right to free speech - well so do the rest of us and I reckon that it is a shame in view of everything he did on the pitch for the club he is now behaving like a spoilt kid off it. 

    Whilst he is free to air his opinions, I hope they don't have a negative on the club this season going forward, I hope his views aren't used as a stick to beat Carol and the management team if there is a bad run of results

    Absolutely, it’s the only bit they haven’t really sorted out yet which is a surprise given how bread and butter it is. The ticketing and crowd management is still as tinpot and laissez faire as it was under Gorm and costs us money from lost business when people just give up. 

    Not bothering to tell people in long queues into the car park it’s full so they’d better pull a U turn until they reach the entrance after they’ve sat waiting on Hamil Road and then the queue for 20 mins is just moronic. 
     

     

    I fell foul of the car park situation as well, the young girls were overwhelmed with the numbers, I've paid for a pass and had to turn round and find a place in Burslem, I hope these are just teething problems, I cannot fault Carol but there is a situation that needs sorting out and I'm sure she will address it for the future.

  12. I've just watched the replay of Wilsons disallowed goal, why the referee thought it was a foul is a mystery, I thought so at the time but having seen it from a different angle, the referee got the decision hopelessly wrong, the keeper committed and failed to collect, no body impeded him in fact there was foul on Smith .................So frustrating. #stillfuming

    Changing formation to 4-4-2 put us on the front foot in the second half, which was lead by Amoo and worrall down the wings putting them under more pressure. Bailey and Cass offered little IMO in terms of meaningful contributions other than facilitating the change in shape. Bailey ran round a lot, but it was pointless running, they played around him too easily. But even so I felt that the wingback formation worked well first half too. 

    I hope young Eden is given a chance, he could have been instructed to get about their back four and make himself a nuisance, he's just turned 17 and could hopefully/possibly be someone who goes on and earns us a bob a two, but supporters will have to be prepared to allow for mistakes.

  14. I've got used to losing matches I've been going long enough, but I'm getting sick to the back teeth of losing games to obvious poor refereeing decisions, over the 90 minutes Stone had very little to do other than the goal so a draw over the 90 minutes would have been fair, It's the feeling of being cheated that's frustrating.

    You can't seriously be forming views on the team 'not being good enough' from someone filming the game off his phone in the stands? 😂

     

    You couldn't make it up, a wobbly disjointed view taken off a phone from the Lorne street near the corner flag, I hope DC ran through the footage with the players when the game was dissected.
