  1. Well, I've not read all the thread but for me I've LOVED that half! We were awful, not managed a shot on goal, absolutely outplayed and we looked like we hadn't won for 12 games....then Boom! One chance and an absolute belter of a goal and we're 1-0 up! How many times have we have had that happen to us at VP? That first half had promotion all over it BUT we now have to go on and complete the win! And change the keeper????? What a penno save....
  2. Sproey reckoned it hadn't come with a manual for Speedy to read......
  3. Did anybody else notice Clarkey giving Gibbo a big kiss on the cheek at the end of the game.....don't think Gibbo knew what to do! 😂 Cracked me up!
  4. Well it's all pretty pretty football but we haven't created a chance yet. It looks like a training game.....of chess. We need to up the pace and get midfield breaking past the forwards and I know that may leave us exposed at times but we have to do summat because we look a bit lethargic/lightweight. They look a good side BUT we haven't gone for them in any shape or form. Come on Vale or else this is looking a bit ominous!
  5. What a horrible team to play against and their "celebration" was horrific and could have caused a major problem. Thought we got bullied out of our stride today but don't understand taking Procter off unless he's got a knock. defensively we always looked like struggling against their up and under approach. I don't normally comment on refs because you know what to sort of expect in this League but this bloke today was very, very poor. At times he looked completely out of his depth and some of the decisions which inevitably led to them winning were "questionable", shall we say? Oh well....move on......their bubble will burst eventually and I'm already looking forward to them coming the Vale.
  6. Calm down...never in doubt....what's up with thee? Jeezus wept what a finish....what a scummy team they are and as for that ****** lampost up front for them...thank God we didn't buy him! Should have been 3 up at half-time...looked like losing it and then bosh....have that! We love you Vale, we do, we love you Vale........
  7. Smiffy went home with a badly bruised leg.......will the owner please contact Port Vale FC...... Was that when he headed that bloke's boot in the last minute? He's a reet warrior Smiffy...I love him!
  8. Their only threat seems to come from the centre half who's as long as I can remember.......apart from him we just have to manage the game as we are doing. Look head and shoulders above them and long may it continue this half.
  9. Theyt becoming a "proper Old Skool Valeite", Joe.........good on yer! 🤣😂
  10. Yeah think I'm in your court Rocky. I QUITE like listening to him because he is a die hard Vale fan. I sometimes think it is like sitting in the Railway paddock and some random bloke is giving a running commentary. My major criticism that I frequently say out loud to the Missus is...watch the game. His art is should be about relaying the action on the pitch....he will frequently miss an incident or name the wrong player because he is talking about something else. There was a classic last Saturday when their lad took a foul throw and he was chatting away and completely missed it until Yatesy said that's the worst foul throw I've seen in pro football.....He needs to watch the action but I think your point about monitors, replays etc is a good one SO he needs to concentrate more on what is going on in front of him. On a separate note i wish iFollow would rein in on their replays....we don't need to see how the corner was won if it has been taken quickly and we leave the action with the cross coming in!!!! That happened a lot on Saturday.
  11. Will somebody please take the ability for them to show replays away......Jaysus wept!
  12. Playing well but for me there are times when Peter Kay style "'Av it" is the correct approach under pressure in your own half rather than thinking we can tip tap it out....I know, I know sacrilege BUT who was it that said they can't score when the ball is in Row Z?
  13. Yep.....wot you said Fred! Still HATE it and it hurts when we lose but am old enough and supported this lot long enough to know we are not going to win every game.....whatever your expectations are as REAL Vale fans not "happy clappers"!!! I think we will click and somebody will get a pasting at some stage....don't know when obviously. I also enjoyed the discipline of the win at FGR....that entertained me in a different way.
  14. What a strange, strange performance! So many individual errors and wrong decisions on the pitch...difficult to believe it's the same club as last week. Defending was schoolboy.
  15. I love Birchy's description of him "ratting" .....absolutely on the money!
  16. Holy Moley....."It's just like watching Brazil"......how good was that? Apart from that bloody schoolboy/amateur piece of work from Johnson. Can we keep it up?
  17. I've had a season ticket since it started and the only real problems I've had have been payment wise when my card has expired etc etc. I have found it brilliant and it has enabled me to see every game, home and away, and I'm not sure I would have been able to do that in the UK! It has come a long way since that first season with no commentary......and I hope it continues indefinitely. I don't understand why UK based fans can't buy a ticket for away games if the money goes to the Vale....doubtless there must be some contractual/money issues somewhere along the line?
  18. Be some interesting comments on here tonight OR will it be very quiet???? I thought we were excellent from 1-11 (Old Skool me!) plus subs. I think Wilson will click at some time but he is a class act anyway, some of his touches were sublime, including setting up the first. Garrity was immense and you could go on and on. I absolutely love Smiffy getting into their forwards....a little pull here, a little shove there. He must be a nightmare to play against. That's the bar set Vale so you've got to maintain that....I'm off the first Leffe of the night is calling! On the Vale!
  19. Well, well, well........second half conner be any worse can it? Kerist, that was awful....
  20. We were......"sloppy". Poor first touches, one touch too many, poor turn whatever and they were all over us. I know it's early days and I certainly expect us to have a good season but at the mo we are definitely disjointed and DC has to sort it out. We are solid, which is a good base to start with, but the midfield has to link with the forwards and we have to start making chances...it all looks a bit hit and hope at the moment. Win at Stevenage now on Satdee....no bother!
  21. They look a decent outfit without creating any chances....but we all know what happens with that don't we children? We've got to get and keep possession much better......reckon DC will be ringing the changes this half.
  22. Thought it was a good game of football. Both teams will be up there in the end I think. We are obviously still gelling and getting to know systems and each other but I thought we looked like a team with potential. Thought Jones was excellent and Pett a little Duracell Bunny. Legge was dominant and Smiffy enjoyed his rumble with their CF I think. As everyone has said before, I too, am worried about the sharp end.....where are the goals coming from? Hopefully once it clicks they will start to arrive because Wilson looks class but is he up for the nitty gritty of Div 2? Thought Proctor has looked good when he's come on. Wozza......well can you say??? Covolan is going to be "entertaining" shall we say.......I missed the header because iFollow have decided they have a new toy and are constantly doing replays whilst the game is going on.....cannot lie, I swore at the screen a few times. Hopefully a good win Tuesday night as the journey progresses.....UTV
  23. Good half of football that.......even steven so i hope we can push on and get a win.
  24. Jeez...I'm in France and it only gives me the listen option.......
