Anchornan 2 is reported to be total *****. The OP not to be confused with the "Paddock Boy" has a point albeit wrong.

We can send Crewe/Stevenage/Sheff U closer to the trap door, stop Walsall going anywhere and give fatty as Rotterdam yet more blood pressure.We cant be top or bottom every year, or is the latter preferable?

I would say that the season as he indicates went rather **** up when Smurf said he didnt want us up, or whatever his words were, but hey ho, thats him for you

Rotherham came up and have kicked on to another level, can anyone say the same for us? Are Rotherham really any bigger of a club than us? They get good crowds now, we don't.

 

I expected a buzz to be around Vale after a promotion but its just the same as last season. Our home fans attendance hasn't increased much and at least there was optimism in league 2.

 

I know I'd rather be in this league but how boring is it?

That's football for you. Two years ago people were moaning because we were 10th in League 2, now they moan because we are 10th in League 1. If we are 10th in the Championship in two years time the same people will moan if we have just lost 1-0 at Leeds!

I'm surprised at the number of fans on here that are settling for mediocrity. Like The Waterboy mentioned in his post, clubs like Walsall are what we should be aspiring to. Hence the problem is not solely that we seem to be slipping away from the play offs, but, moreover, the lack of desire from Adams and the players to perform to the highest ability. Effort and entertainment have not been consistent for a while now. The comeback at Plymouth aside, it was the back-end of December in the win against Rotherham that we were reminded why we wanted the Vale to be in League One. Even before that we earned an unspectacular victory of struggling Notts County and refused to turn up in the opening half hour at MK Dons.

 

There are fans on here saying the play-offs are an unrealistic aim, but there is no reason why a place in the top 8 is beyond us. Surely our current ranking amidst current form (two victories in eight), suggests that this is Vale's strongest chance in a number of years to earn an impressive season finish. Come the summer, it would help attract better players and convince some of the current crop, such as Loft and Lines, to stay.

 

Micky Adams has filled his bench with attacking options for the last two matches and hasn't utilised any of them to make us look remotely like scoring. How can Smurf or the club expect fans to turn up in numbers with this mentality?

I think If two years ago you would have said we will be in a challenging for play-offs or been on the verge.....You would have laughed your head off........Get a grip we are punching well above our weight thanks to good Management who do the best with what they have got........The play-offs would be fantastic from a financial angle BUT we all know only 3 maybe 4 of this present Squad who would manage to compete at Championship level.........Rome wanna built in day AND i for one have come home smiling more time these last couple of seasons than in over a decade.

 

We can easily rule the play-offs out this season I'm sure but how do we afford players that could compete in the Championship without a stint in that league to attract large crowds on a more regular basis?

 

If we are to have a budget cut we're likely not to do aswell as this year...if people are losing interest at this stage after a relatively successful campaign up until this point, where do we go from here when it comes to generating funds to improve year on year?

 

What could Smurthwaite's long term plan be? Or is he hoping it won't be his problem in a year or so?

 

This is what worries me. I could accept a drab end to this season if I didn't feel we have some serious issues to face in the summer and next year.

The first couple of posts, and several others further down, make really depressing reading.

Are we supposed to be impressed when someone posts that they are not going to the next match because player x is selected, or they don't like the formation or such utter immature gobby self-indulgent nonsense. Go to the cinema then - go to the moon preferably, your choice.

Season over ? perhaps we should go into admin again and have 10 pts deducted then the bored ones would have a relegation fight to be excited about.

We are lucky we have a larger number of reliable, loyal and sensible fans who have posted what they think about this nonsense and will continue to support their club without qualification.

Surprise surprise we lose a game and everyones moaning i think we are punching well above our weight we are not good enough for play offs but surely at the start of the season our main aim was to stay in this league which is what we will do

I would go along with that,we have come such a long way and a few do think we are better than what we are,Bradford had won 1 in the last 20+ games,now can you imagine what some on here would of been like if that was us.

I'm sure they are Fosse but ask yourself do you want to see negative,defensive football or the 4-3 games over the rest of the season.The crap we are playing at the moment will guarantee further crowds of under 4000.Like I said earlier ,we have nothing to lose and a lot to be gained by playing attacking,attractive football for the rest of the season.I wonder how we'll line up on Saturday against a team that's conceded 60 goals this season?
I was only quoting the usual management view, I would prefer a 7 goal game decided on a single goal, win or lose, than a one goal game. Depends on a point of view, are goals un stoppable or mistakes? Matter of opinion of course, and the quality of the goal or stop. We mainly go to a match hoping for worthwhile effort to be put in, and our side to win. Some games/seasons have more at stake, but most seasons will be mid-table, which is an achievement for a promoted team without a large budget. Still some interesting games to watch, which we should be keen to win.

You didn't go last night did you?

 

Because if you did you wouldn't be criticising Pope who had a good game despite being given absolutely NO service.

 

How many shots on target did he have and why is it that, that excuse comes up every time- 'noservice'? It really is irritating.

 

Strikers who have good games and score no goals hmmm did we score any from Pope assists- No.
