  1. I think ultimately if we do go up this season it’s this period we can look back on and say it went a huge way to doing it. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say there is no other club in this division who could keep pulling off results like we have been with the injuries we’ve got up top. Huge credit to all for that. Conlon I thought was superb. We are extremely lucky to have him.
  2. Trying not to get carried away but we have been spectacular so far. Conlon is just running this show.
  3. Just really unfortunate he got an injury at the exact time he was going to get an extended chance. Can see he had some attributes which would have interested DC in the first place but if you’re a forward you ultimately need to be more of a goal threat than he is. Good luck to him. Without knowing what funds we will have for January or what we might get from a cup run / potential player sales one forward who I think could tick the right boxes for us would be Kyle Wootton at Notts.
  4. First preference would be a home tie against say an Everton or Villa type. Guaranteed sellout crowd at home and probably on TV. If away then Chelsea or Arsenal. I know Stoke will be a popular choice, just hope if it were to happen it’s at their place. Problem either way is the amount of restrictions that will be insisted on this plus early Sunday kick off etc will take away from the occasion.
  5. It’s fair enough to swap it round a little. Priority has to be Tuesday really as nice as a win today would be. With five subs there is plenty of scope to bring on the likes of Worrall, Cass and Politic etc second half if they are required.
  6. I wouldn’t even try to tempt fate with injuries in this. From memory would say Stone, Legge, Burgess and maybe Lloyd if he’s back available would give them some minutes but other than that give everyone else the night off and name some academy lads.
  7. Well done to all the team today. Won’t be making anyone’s list of classic Vale performances but on a day like today grinding out the result is everything and we did it. Given the injured players we have now rest everyone for midweek in pizza trophy. Nothing good can come from risking anyone in that.
  8. Just get through today whatever way possible. Bringing Burgess back into the squad is looking an increasingly better decision. I’m saying a scrappy 1-0 for us, think Rodney is due a goal today.
  9. I think it’s just a case of do the basics better nothing more than that. I think people can talk about this formation or that formation etc but it’s just about better decision making on the ball and winning our individual battles more often when off the ball particularly those second balls on set pieces which we have been losing a little more frequently. Do that and we should have too much for Hartlepool.
  10. No way of sugar-coating it that was just dreadful from us especially first half. I like Jones but if he keeps his place for Saturday he will be rather fortunate. Not scapegoating him as there were plenty others who were almost as bad but did he know we were playing in white last night? We did seem a little better after the changes in the second half. I thought Rodney applied himself well when he came on if never really coming close to threatening their goal. I think Walker to come into the team for Saturday at least. We could have done with him last night in retrospect.
  11. Just looking at Walsall from afar I think that owner of theirs has definite Smurthwaite type tendencies. They are still at the stage where some of them are still buying whatever comes out of his mouth though. So good luck with that. DC was actually pretty good there overall in any case so it’s just bitterness from some of them. He had them in playoff contention before leaving and even going back to the season before that was cut short when we played them at the Bescot they were on a good run then and looked a very decent team against us.
  12. I’m pretty hopeful we’ll bounce back tonight. Nothing have seen of us under DC tells me we will retreat into our shells after a minor setback like Saturday. Would also note that we are just better than Walsall player for player. Someone needs to get a grip on Labadie though. Seen enough of what he’s like down the years to know what he will be up to all game. Hopefully someone can feign getting elbowed in the face off him or something like that and get him sent off. I’ve seen it mentioned about Garrity or Taylor, for me I’d be looking at Brad Walker instead to add some size just with tonight in mind.
  13. I like the idea of a big screen in the Family Stand corner. Longer term assuming the government do go through with relaxing the rules on having a beer in the stands wouldn’t mind seeing at least part of the Bycars converted to safe standing to get a proper atmosphere down there again.
  14. Not our greatest performance overall but it’s one more point than we had at the start of the day so can’t complain really. Just hope Wilson is ok, if it was him with that chance at the end rather than Lloyd I’m confident in saying we’d have won. Think sometimes have to credit the opposition too, they were decent. On to Oldham, good opportunity of three points before we get to put Walsall firmly in their place.
  15. Think the program on Sky Sports Football starts at 11:30 so should capture at least some of it would have thought.
