    Yet we were better than in our last game? I can't be both!

    Were we? Result says not. We huffed and puffed at times but ultimately we went no where. 

    Keep buying defenders and still can’t defend for toffee. When was the last time we kept a clean sheet?

    Let’s not butter this up either we have lost 5 of the last 7 in the league with some absolute embarrassing preformances both collectively and individually. 

    Promotion is looking like a distant dream currently.

    Not saying it couldn’t happen but if Garrity is fit I’d be amazed if he was dropped if we play the current formation.  Even if we change formation I’d still be surprised, unless the manager simply wants to give Walker a run out.

    Agree mate. Midfield of Conlon, pett and Walker is is a static and slow as it gets.

    In fairness to the club here, people have had ages to buy tickets for today and ST seats were blocked for purchase. Waiting until the day before the game and then being surprised that the seat block deadline has been reached and the seat has become available is maybe a bit harsh. 

    Shouldn’t matter though. If you sell on the day you sell on the day and should be prepared as such.

    Needs to be something done. Shouldn’t matter what time you turn up. You should be able get in far easier. Don’t see those queues at big prem clubs. This is not an isolated incident this season either. Admittedly not normally that bad. 

    if we are hoping/trying to increase the fan base than the whole day has to be a seamless event else all you do is create more reason for not going back. 

    We are very well ran in a lot of ways now but getting into the ground is still a joke at times.

    Anybody mentioned Gibbo yet?  After we’d had a tough first half, where he got booked for a crunching tackle, he had their wide right player in his pocket. I can’t remember the guy beating him second half and his composure and execution to pick out Cass for the goal was excellent.  Maybe should’ve blocked the shot for their goal if I’m being critical.  It seemed to go straight through him giving Covolan no chance.

    Been immense since coming back!! Add to that that he was out with what could have been a career ending injury and he is playing out of position makes it even more impressive.

    Happy get out of there with a point in the end.

    Take it though.

    Hope the matrix has got Tom Conlons replacement lined up.  


    Amazing how differently we all view things. Thought him a garrity were part of the problem tonight. Never at it at all I’m my eyes. Players ghosted past Conlon all night and his passing was woeful at times. No where near it other than a sublime free kick.

    3 things have happened since that Rochdale game that have changed us for the better. Smith moved to the centre of a back 3, cass playing to the right of the back 3 and Gibbo coming in for Benning. All have made an impact in their respective positions. 

    Spot on mate. Take a bit to shift them at the minute. I think had smith played centre against Rochdale then we deal with their lad better. Not saying we would have got anything because we were pretty bad after the first 20 mins but we would definitely have dealt with him better.

    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.

    Personally think we never dealt with their tall striker that day. Martin had a mare against him. Just couldn’t cope with him at all.
