Still think we’re lacking options to come on and actually change the game. 

As will be the case for most other League Two sides to be fair. Out of the 7 you'll be lucky to have two decent players you can bring on that might make a difference.

Not read through the whole thread, so apologies if my comments have already been made, overall I was pleased with the performance today, a couple of appalling decisions by the referee, not much between the teams in the first have but we certainly turned it up for the second, Gibbo and Worral (man of the match for me) seemed to be linking up very well, Amoo has a decent touch and good turn of pace, although he seemed to fade in the last 15, Manny was putting in a decent shift despite coming in for a lot of physical attention, I was a bit frustrated by Conlon, I was he seemed to want to take an extra touch when he was In a good position instead of taking the shot, Popey led the line well and was unlucky with a couple of headers, good mention of Leggy who performed well against there big number 9 and almost scored with the header in the second half.....Scott Brown does what Scott Brown does...certainly kept us in the game in the second half.

positive signs..... it is going to take a couple of seasons to turn the club around, it’s early days, but I feel we are on the right track....UTV

We battered them for large parts of the second half so how did Brown keep is in the game? :laugh:

He made one or two good saves granted, but you make it sound like they were the ones that were all over us.

I was in the Bycars, the ball was fired across the goal and their big number 9 missed it by inches, should have buried it to be honest, no Vale player touched the ball, never a corner...

I can forgive a ref if he doesn’t see something that has happened. I can’t forgive a ref when he sees something that hasn’t happened. The guy was a joke. That was his first League game - unfortunately it probably won’t be his last.

Keith Curles comment on their goal:

 

"For our goal, we identified the player marking Ryan Watson and we thought that would give us an opportunity and so it proved. Ryan showed a great understanding of where he needed to be and he finished it well.”

I’ll expand on this now Beef Curtain has blocked me. We’ve huffed and puffed to yet another failure to win at home with all but Amoo in the starting eleven than last season. If you don’t like pastry, you’ll starve should you like anything to eat. Add to that my season ticket failed to work and was revoked.

So even if you block someone you still see their posts when they’re quoted. Any way around that admin?

 

if anyone watched that game today and thought it was the same as last season then I really must be watching something different. We have energy and a gameplan. 

No we still leave Pope isolated up front to pick up scraps against their two centre halves.If the midfield is pushed back we still struggle to support him.

Cant see where the goals are coming from especially if Manny is injured again.

We have no plan B.

Thank Brown for keeping us in the match.

When Cullen came on he seemed to be in midfield.

If Manny is out drop Worrall back and play Cullen up front to try to feed off Pope.

Considering we were at home very negative tactics and team selection.

Another one to pop on the ignore list. 

I have finally realised it’s far nicer reading this forum when you block people who know absolutely nothing about football or what’s going on at the club!

bye bye

Wonder if you actually manage to read any comments with such a big ignore list you snowflake.

Obviously you are a football expert and should replace Gary Lineker on match of the day to save us 1.8 million.

Leave the rest of us to have a logical discussion Iron Cuntain.

Using your usual logic, if Northampton hadn’t scored we would have won.

Not surprised not many ppl thought it was a corner. He was a non lge ref last season!!

And a non league quality ref this year - shocking, quite a few totally logic defying decisions today.  Enjoyed the game though - can't remember enjoying many last season. Several good chances to win it - why oh why we didn't shoot on 3 or 4 occasions i will never understand. A lot of good performances and no bad ones (imo)
