Match Thread: Port Vale v Mansfield Town.

Recommended Posts

Seems very harsh to be critical of Taylor when, in his second start, he is played in a midfield two.

May have been unavoidable given injuries, but cut him some slack.

Think it’s very harsh on Taylor to call him a poor singing, wasn’t great against Exeter and in the first half Saturday he was a passenger, however if you look at his other appearances then he’s done well! You have to remember he’s still a young lad 20 I think and this is his first stint in football league, you can’t jump on a players back for 2 below par performances and call him a poor signing! I’ve seen enough in him to believe that he will turn out to be a good signing and let’s put it this way he has been thrown in at the deep end with the injury’s! Even though we all have our different views and opinions, let’s put it this way, there’s a reason that they’re on the pitch playing and we’re in the stands and typing on fans forums! 

Maybe you are right, I thought he just looked a bit lost.  Not jumping on his back.  And I agree he got thrown in at the deep end.

I wish Montano would get lost permanently because on Saturday it was clear that he just didn't fancy it! On his day he is superb but that is about twice a season and he is certainly not one to build your future on.

Crookes is rubbish at LB. Sorry. Based on all his performances there,

Don’t apologise.

Rubbish? Really?  I see a young player just setting out in his league career, still learning his position, with potential to improve.

What I see is someone who, whilst not a stand out performer, has usually been more than capable at left back.

What I would point out is that at LB, more often than not, you’re going to come up against some damn good players. Logically, there are far more decent pacy, tricky right wingers than there are on the opposite wing, so, generally, the job of the LB is going to be tougher than that of the RB.

Cut Crookes some slack.  In fact cut them all some slack.  Back the lads, as difficult as you may find it. UTV

I get your point.  I  just don't think he is really a left back. Which does the lad no favours playing there.  And I'm sorry but he has been poor there for me on several occasions.  He's a left side CB preferably part of a back three.  But I don't doubt his effort. And nothing against the bloke.
