  1. I think he is a bit of a Bennett type player. In terms that he keeps knocking about club to club but never really achieving potential. This season has been one of his better ones but the lad is 27 and hasn’t really pulled up any trees. Watched the Morecambe and Southend game and their commentators kept saying “looks like he has his head on tonight” which would suggest he blows hot and cold.
  2. 6 games is admirable. And while I am grateful for the players efforts over the last few month to get us out of a mess we must be ruthless. Sentiment is not afforded in football any more.
  3. Certainly has. Also played 3 different positions now for the cause. If we had 11 smiths we wouldn’t have an issue. Was well below par for first part of the season but who wasn’t. Never one to shy away. 100% with him every game. Sad that he has been singled out by some for stick but the game is about opinions and everyone has the right to one I guess.
  4. Yep now is the time to try and build the buzz for next season. Well done all involved for getting us over the line. We are certainly hard to beat now. Rode our luck a bit today too but the only stat that matters at the end of every day is in our favour again. Credit where it’s due to Morecambe are a decent side so we earned it today with hard graft.
  5. That is an interesting stat hadn’t realised that of gibbons. Manny has performed well recently but for me he goes at the end of the season. 3 seasons and only 52 appearances is woeful. Maybe it’s a case of both parties need a change. I always worry with players like Manny that it’s in his head and he will never get away from it. Let’s not beat around the bush he is playing now because he needs a contract somewhere which I would imagine gives him a bit more mental strength to play through any pain. Rob Taylor is another one more recently that always seemed to do the same.
  6. I’ll concur he definitely said something along those lines. If I’m thought he meant Manny but we do have a few who he could ha e been talking about.
  7. Tbf we have carried to many of those players which in part has been part of our down fall. Manny, Amoo, Cullen and Monty. Arguably 3 first team players on their day or very good cover. Their days are few and far between though. The harsh reality is that we can’t afford any of them. Their inconsistency means that you are always chopping and changing.
  8. Ahh that makes sense. Still a decent player at this level. Seems to have been available most of the season too. Which again has not been true of our fringe players.
  9. Yep, done really well. I did think I’m preseason that they were making some decent signings but never thought they would do as well as they have.the glaringly obvious fact is we have no depth. I mean they have Ben Pringle who would walk into our midfield and he can’t get a game and leitch smith is arguably better than what we have. Their over all squad it’s better than ours.
  10. I would love the vale to smash Exeter tomorrow and tribute it to Lee. Come on vale show one of our own how much we regard them!
  11. Incredibly sad news. Thank you for being part of Port Vale and giving us so many happy memories. Will never forget his marauding runs in the 90th minute as if it was the first minute while the rest of the players would be huffing and puffing. RIP Lee and I hope your family find some comfort in how highly you are thought of not just at vale but across the whole of football.
  12. Shouldn’t be in this division wozza. One of the loyal few for me. Great player for us and goes about his business with no fuss.
  13. He’s certainly not bitter at all is he 😂
  14. And Ryan big <ovf censored> Burge! 😂 Strange little creature.
  15. There are a few good players in there but after that this squad is terrible... They finished 8th last season but the seasons either side have been piss poor. Need to be careful we don’t fall into the sentimental trap. A lot of the players, Manny for example, have had their chance now sadly. It hasn’t worked for whatever reasons move on. The squad needs an overhaul if not least. Just to freshen things up.
  16. Their fans are deluded. Smith has spoiled them. Taken a bit of an interest in them since Clarke came in as you do. Their chairman reminds me of Smurf! He does YouTube videos informing them of “truths”. Bloke stinks more than Chesterton tip! Felt a bit sorry for them cause they are falling for his bull hook line and sinker. Then saw the bile they posted about the vale and it passed. Don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that he is a grade a con artist. Supposedly have a top ten budget but I’d wager that it’s no where near, then their chairman sold their better players in jan with no reinvestment. Replaced them with no hope loans...where have we seen that before. They are after a director of football and I wouldn't put it past their chairman to say he’s had a call from Jose before unveiling Bruno as DOF followed by an influx of quality international superstars... I will call it now, they will be in serious trouble next season if they survive this one.
  17. Good win tonight and finally WE score the scrappy winner. Well done all involved. It’s done now move on to Saturday which is now a huge game! Get it done vale...
  18. It’s not you. Bloke can’t run. Nether is he good enough along with the rest of them.
  19. Wow mate, really? I’m negative about vale but come on. How about...we played 442 and didn’t get absolutely over run in midfield. Worrall 90 minutes. Amoo back. Created endless chances. Clean sheet. Commitment from all 10 players on the pitch (and mills).Pope to come back. It may not have been to your standards, how ever ludicrously high they are for a league two side in a relegation scrap but play like that for the remaining games and we stay up. There were far more positives tonight than there have been for the last few weeks.
  20. I think the same mate. Must win game this for me. Time for all the talking to stop. Actions speak louder than words and for the most part of the season we have been acting like a non league outfit.
  21. Yep I’d agree but this last year has been the most stable we have been for ages. How we wish we’d not kept /signed half of this lot now 😂
  22. Tbf to bowers the only positive is if you are watching a different game... 😂😂😂🤣
  23. For me it’s to see the issue here and today highlights it perfectly...Charlie Raglan was deemed not good enough by Askey but the same bloke thought that zac mills was better... Raglan was never great for us but we have replaced those players with some shockingly bad players. Talk about regression.
  24. If this team doesn’t snt go down I’ll eat my hat. There is no fight in us what so ever. Even our better players are piss poor.
  25. Worse than Askey... not so sure these are a quality side. Worse side... definitely funnily enough put together by Askey...
