  1. It's nothing to do with ambition. We ALL want promotion, every season. That's everybody's ambition. The difference between posters like me and those like you is realism. You expect us to go from an absolutely dire squad to a promotion squad within 8 months. When it doesn't happen, you stamp and scream and throw your toys out of the pram. Most of us recognise the massive progress that has happened in such a short period of time. Yes, we're all disappointed not to be further up the table, particularly after how the season started. But most of us are sensible enough to realise the job that DC and DF had on their hands and are not throwing a tantrum because things haven't gone our way over the past few months. If you can't see the improvement all over the pitch then I fear you never will. I’m not sure where the improvement on the pitch has been since Bradford? The issue is, we had such a strong start, we’re in a fantastic position, we needed to take that chance. Sign a proven striker in the window not some young lads. There’s no tantrum or stamping the floor… it’s the realisation that we are more than likely going to be stuck in this league for another season. A season which will be much more difficult than this season in terms of opposition. That’s what the club expected though? Not just fans? The aim this season before they kicked a ball was the play offs. If your happy with how we’ve been for a good few months then fair enough, however not everyone is. Feels like a wasted opportunity this season IMO and im sure Crosby said something of the nature yesterday? To make sure it isn’t a wasted opportunity. Im not demanding immediate success. I simply expect us to be able to do better than we have recently. To try different tactics, to put players in their correct position, to not sign players who have played 5 minutes of pro football before, to not play hoofball to Wilson ect.
  2. Tough game for us this. We should probably spend all week watching how good Crawley are and then set up 343 and look to defend for 90 minutes. Then we can say well done if we manage to get a 7th draw in 11 games. Definitely need to keep the fantastic Holy in nets and make sure we play that back 3 again. Hopefully we play Wilson and Edmondson out position and Cooper surely has to start after how good he’s been. 0-0. Fantastic result that some fans take as a huge stride forwards.
  3. Yeah massive improvement this season is. 13th last season after that horrible start. Brilliant start this season and we now sit 10th. Same old issues as last year as well. Repetitive <ovf censored> formation week after week, loads of injuries, still a completely unbalanced squad. They moaned about us having loads of the same kind of player yet have done the exact same thing. Awful window last January, same this January. Guess it shows some vale fans ambitions though, to be happy that we’re not in a relegation battle in league 2.
  4. Sorry being so fickle. But fans can have different opinions. I never praised flitcroft. Our signings have been pretty average and very poor recently. I’ve heard what he’s like round the club and is a bit of a <ovf censored>.
  5. Calmed down now since that horror show yesterday. Worst performance of the season, everything about it was atrocious and not a single positive can be taken from game. Yes we have been unlucky with injuries. Why didn’t we sign someone to replace Conlon in January? Why not go and find a creative midfielder, isn’t that the job of the DOF? The football has been dire since since the Bradford game, dropping like a lead balloon. How many f in times, stop playing 3 at the back it’s infuriating. Every game we set up the same just waiting to concede. They were shocking yesterday and we were no better. I complained loads in the Jan window about our signings and got shot down. We had a shocking window and we’re seeing the dividends of that now. Never going to go up signing a load of young players on loan who have barely played any football. It’s straight out of the Michael Brown guide. Edmondson, Harratt, Holy, Robinson, Charsley why? What is the point? And don’t even get me started on cooper!!!! He’s the replacement for politic??? No chance we scouted him - he’s worse than hurst. Just wondering how DOF has improved us? Signings have been crap other than the odd player. Priorities all over the place in January, signing a third keeper, not signing any creativity not bringing in a decent forward ecttt Alls I know flitcroft has been good for is firing people who have been at the club a long time. And isn’t liked, at all. His contract is up at the end of the year isn’t it? 100% don’t renew that. Theres no chance what so ever of us going up. We have to scrap this negative style, it’s horrible to watch, picks up no points. 3 wins in 10 against 3 truly dreadful sides ain’t good enough, and it Dosent suit any of the players. All season worrall has been wasted at RWB. We have a lack of creativity because of the set up, yes we’re missing our two most creative players, but if set up with some kind of attacking approach that may help!!! Careful though, we can’t and shouldn’t criticise on here. It might hurt the players feelings…. Load of rubbish. We’re <ovf censored> same as every other season.
  6. Be interesting to see How many more points we end up with as opposed to last season. We’ve barely improved. <ovf censored> useless.

  8. Just bored and fed up with vale at the minute. Sick of mediocrity season after season. Every year we start well and fade. We will lose our best players in the summer and then start again. Can’t <ovf censored> wait.
  9. <ovf censored> shambles. Sick of getting shot down. ‘Back the lads’ ect. Since the Jan signings we’ve been <ovf censored>. <ovf censored> signings that have taken us backwards. Can’t wait for another season in this league. <ovf censored> sick of it. Same old <ovf censored> vale.
  10. Season over. <ovf censored> dreadful. It’s been coming
  11. Unbeaten in 10 though. 7 draws is amazing. Love us failing to beat Rochdale Harrogate and colchester….. dire <ovf censored> dreadful this is again. Stop defending it. It’s <ovf censored>. can’t wait for league 2 again next year wooooooo
  12. Yeah. No idea why some thought he was ducking messi after playing 5 mins this season. Crap.
  13. Cooper steeling a living. Bloody awful signing
  14. Have to win today. Can’t be failing to beat Rochdale, Harrogate and colchester and expect promotion. Need to and should win this.
  15. Suppose it Dosent make sense playing him 90 mins when we’re 2-0 up…. But then leaving him out of the next two?
  16. Or the keeper has just been a bit dodgy so far? I see you quoted myself there. (Holy is dodgy) he has been so far. Stats look good but that’s because the defence has been excellent rather than Holy pulling off a string of saves. I don’t necessarily think the goal was his error but I’d be wanting my keeper to do better there. So without any game changing errors I just don’t think he’s looked any better than the other two keepers we have.
  17. That’s because our defence has been excellent. How many actual saves can you recall from Holy?
  18. Pretty simple for me RE Holy. He’s kept clean sheets, yes, but that is 100% down to our set up and defensive work. When he has been called into action he hasn’t been very good. It’s alright saying the goal against Harrogate wasn’t his fault, maybe no. But I’d be wanting my keeper to do better than that. Kicks the ball to their keeper more than our own players, really poor shot stopper and drops it half the time in the air. Not to mention he’s really dodgy with the ball at his feet. I can’t actually recall a proper save from him? For me, Stone should play. He did nothing wrong in his few games and made no clangers like Covalon. Not a fan of him either but Holy could have met a similar date with his dallying on the ball. Think out recruitment in nets needs a massive improvement. Back to the Michael brown days.
  19. Horrible news. To think only 12 hours ago he posted a message RE the death of Rod Marsh. Pretty gutted by this. Shane was one of the reasons I got into cricket. Easily without doubt the best bowler I’ve ever seen play live. Just amazing what he could do no matter the opposition, the pitch, the ball ect. Seemed a class bloke as well. R.I.P legend
  20. Love mac, my favourite program is it’s always sunny so to say I’m slightly jealous of Wrexham is a a bit of an understatement
  21. If Jones is fit he’s starts for me. stone Gibbons Smith Hall Jones Hussey Pett Walker Garrity Proctor Wilson
  22. Would love to see a back 4 as I have wanted all season. But I’ll settle for 352 not 343. If Jones is fit he needs to play at the back so we have someone to carry the ball out. Walker back into midfield and let Garrity get right up front. I’d start Amoo, didn’t think Cooper was too bad last night but I’d start Amoo over him (if Proctor is good to go he starts)
  23. Agreed it is. Just makes our last minute conceding of goals the more frustrating
  24. Other teams also have games in hand. Exeter and Mansfield both above us both have games in hand on us. We’re still in an ok position and should still make play offs hopefully but dropping points in games we should be winning is frustrating. Put it anyway you want but 6 draws in 9 isn’t promotion form. I’ll take where we are now but we do need to start winning games. Massive few games coming up soon, Sutton, Exeter and Mansfield. That will decide our season. If we can get 5/6/7 points from that 3 I think we have a good chance.
