  1. ... which becomes important if someone has quickly booked train/hotel to get the cheaper prices for a weekend in London !!
  2. ...not sure that Forest or Swan would view Vale as a team where he would get enough game time and minutes on the pitch. Especially if he came as the fourth striker, as some posters feel he would be.
  3. After taking the lead and then sitting back and inviting pressure, the Italians obliged and poured forward. For 80+% of the game there was only one team that looked like they wanted to score.... and it wasn't England ! Mind you, I've seen plenty of Vale games over the years where Vale have done that, and the usual outcome was that the opposition scored an equaliser/winner !!
  4. Donation done, Rob. Wife will soon find out !!
  5. .... used, untraceable fivers okay, Rob? I'm sure I've got a pile of old, white ones in a box up in the attic !! Count me in please.
  6. Can't say I have any particular affection for Crawley FC , but it does afford a great weekend away ......in Brighton. On that basis, I'm glad they will not be going down, and I hope away fans will be allowed in by the time our next fixture there is played. Otherwise it may just have to be Brighton with the wife but no match!
  7. ... i would imagine the majority of Gibbons' absences have been due to the one major injury he suffered early in the season, and from which he has only recently recovered, whereas Montano's absences have been caused by multiple hamstring/muscle injuries - thus earning him the 'injury prone' tag.
  8. ... was it just me or did anyone else think that Tom Pope was carrying a bit too much timber? Perhaps it's my old eyes, or maybe the wide-screen TV making players look wider than they actually are, but....
  9. Brown needs to help his defenders out as much as he can with these long throws into the 6 yard box.
  10. Thing should be a lot clearer for them after Colchester's next 3 games.... Home to Barrow, away at Oldham and home to Walsall. If they are not 'clear' of Southend by then, their next game is the tasty little matter of Colchester v Southend. Of course, there are other teams down there (where we were!} that still need points.... fortunately we aren't one of them now.
  11. ...all the answers... it's like asking the manager which bits he agrees with. Worst interviewer I've ever heard.
  12. ... totally agree with this. McGarry is the worst at it. his questions contain
  13. ... I noticed in the Crawley game that he came and took a cross beyond the penalty spot. Can't remember him doing that before!!
  14. Exactamundo, said Bart ! Precisely why we don't even bother trying to sign people like him. Would we like him, ability wise? Of course. Would/should we pay out this sort of money for a player of his ability? Definitely not.
  15. Our uncertainty over the team/formation is probably enhanced due to our lack of information regarding injuries/fitness of various players, something the manager is reluctant to give us.
  16. He should have been dropped ages ago, when Visser was still fit. He does not command his 6 yd box/the pen area and gives me kittens every time a cross comes in - he leaves it for the defenders to win every one... and that is highly unlikely. He often redeems himself with excellent/spectacular saves, but I don't think he has been as consistent and as good as last season. Perhaps replacing him with Visser much earlier, though maybe not on a permanent basis, would have been a much more acceptable decision than replacing him now with a complete, young rookie.
  17. .... yea. That'll be another few weeks then. What a waste of money he is becoming.
  18. "That's genuinely the worst 11 I've seen Port Vale put out in a league game." (TylerB) ....... you must be very young then, Tyler. Us oldies have seen many worse teams than this one!!
  19. ... dead right. It's time for Sibley et al to prove me completely wrong.
  20. Indeed. Would look and sound great if it was full of enthusiastic, raucous home fans and the Barmy Army! By the way, what has happened to everyone in the crowd wearing masks and social distancing? Not required in India? Perhaps I'm just behind the times...
  21. Sibley took me back a few years today. He reminded me of Graeme Hick ... he can score stacks of runs against County trundlers, but struggles against real pace and movement. Hick did gradually improve... let's hope Sibley does, but at the moment, he looks nothing like a test opener/batsman.
  22. ... I assume that one of Flitcroft's next tasks - now that the manager's position is sorted - is to sort out Leon Legge's contractual position (if there is a problem), as to whether or not he will be available again this season. I doubt that this will be sorted before the Orient game, but we could certainly do with the extra competition that he would provide at the back, unless we simply chuck the new, young lad in.
  23. ... Don't Bradford have undersoil heating, from their brief stay in the top division, but are unable to use it due to the crippling cost of using it... I'm sure I saw something a couple of years ago quoting something like £8/10,000 per match to use it. On the other hand, I suppose it wouldn't need to be used that often.
  24. ...cheers dd..... I must confess that after watching many poor performances and with some of the results we have been getting, I have taken little notice of the table...especially of the teams below us. I'm just grateful that Barrow, Grimsby and Southend appear to be too far behind us.... I hope!!
  25. We are going 20th at least when they all catch up so pressure is already on we are just kidding ourselves that it isn't Does this assume that all the teams below us take maximum points from their games in hand? If so, I would argue that for all of them to turn it around is highly unlikely to happen... maybe from one/two teams below us, but all of them...?
