Match Thread: Grimsby Town v Port Vale

Why is it that almost every team we play at this level is a team of giants? Grimsby have Hanson, yes, but a number of other tall lads too. I suppose we've had enough practice against lads like this in the past few weeks, what with Colchester's Nouble and Smith at the Cobblers. It's hard to defend corners and free kicks against these tall teams. Northampton and Salford scored from dead balls so we have to me on our mettle. It isn't easy.

Be interesting to see who replaces Monty. Maybe he will stick Bennett out wide and play Pope. That's a decent call, JRC. Or does he play Lloyd? A few options. Pope's height might be handy.

A good big un is better than a good little un was always said, since about a 1\3 of goals come from set pieces it has a logic to it. More difficult for Vale to defend set pieces without Pope, we have to go for 2 or 3 goals in a game. Low crosses from swift attacks take away the tall advantage, especially as some of the giants are ponderous.

Fancy us today. After an excellent performance against forest green I fancy us to win if we can cut out these silly errors. I’d probably bring in Lloyd for Monty to keep the same shape, dont think Bennett should be out on the left. 2-1 vale.

Ernie will be head butting his keyboard and crying like a baby

 

Lloyd starts

It will be interesting to see how he does in a starting berth. He played well at Salford but looked way off the pace in the FGR game

 

Hopefully he is played in his preferred midfield role rather than the wing, and push wozza out there

Whats the betting that Ed case Ern will be sitting with keyboard powered up, ready to slag off Lloyd  and Askey , if we don't get a result.

Another ref making his first season in the league and card happy - mentioned on the radio.  Hope he is good today.

Come on Vale.  Get in Leon, just what we wanted.

Hate to give in to Ernie's negativity here, but Lloyd is doing nothing, we're playing with 10 men. The midfield is over run with him in there.
