Play Bennett and Pope .

Give them something to worry about.

Wouldn't be a bad shout at all of either all 3 of Bennett/Pope/Archer up front, or 2 of them plus Amoo, with Worrall/Taylor/Burgess behind them.

Not wanting to temp fate, but I feel like this is the game that could act as a catalyst for us to push on. I can see us giving them a real hiding.

You’re a brave man tempting fate when the Vale are playing at home against a team below them in the league. Hope you’re right though and we give them a real hiding.

As we've seen already this season Phil, relative league position counts for nothing. Wasn't it Crawley that stuffed Mansfield at home?

Imperative to keep the tempo and concentration on Saturday for 90 mins as though Vale are playing Liverpool. We've seen already this season we can be excellent and ordinary for long periods in the same game.

I've been impressed with how JA has gradually introduced the new players signed in the summer into the team. I think there was only Amoo initially in the starting 11 for the first game of the season, if my memory is correct. Most of the new additions that I've seen have impressed me to some degree so far.

I don’t see how any game we should win handsomely,especially when it looks like we can concede at any time during a game and we will be without Gibbons who I feel is our best player .

Speaking to lad at work who is a Macclesfield  fan and Sunderland fan he says Askey can spot talent and in Burgess and Taylor and Amoo that seems the case .

My team on sat is this 

           Brown    

Smith  Brisley Legge 

           Joyce 

 

Amoo  Burgess Taylor Worrall 

            Archer Pope 

subs Kennedy Bennett And five others 

Tough tough game I remember Jim Bentleys thrashing us 4-0 at home not so long ago so let’s hope the players are not complacent and put in the performance necessary to win the game .

Probably only Lloyd (not necessarily new) & Kennedy that I'm worried about, the rest I think have all been decent. Haven't seen that much of Cullen, but I reckon he's an alright back up.

Ref tomorrow : quote Vale website 

In the seven games the referee has taken charge of this campaign, he has issued a staggering 38 yellow card and three red cards across the three competitions. 

could be interesting

That’s a ridiculous amount. The powers that be should be looking at stats like that and analysing the games he’s taken to see if they’re warranted / where he can improve.

I fully agree but do you think they really care?

The only thing they'll be assessing these new referees for is if they're capable enough to be added to the VAR collection for the greed is good league.

I'd be tempted to throw Atkinson in at right back...

 

If Rhys Browne is fit I would go Browne - Bennett - Amoo as the front three and put Wozza - Joyce and Taylor as the central three.

If the referee is strict getting Amoo and Browne at their full backs could see them in trouble and get early bookings.

I think it is more likely that we will have Kennedy at RB, Woz on the wing and Atkinson in the middle.

I said in the Atkinson thread that it was odd they’d specifically mention right back in his press, I think that’s because they’ll throw him in there tomorrow. It said it all about Kennedy the other week when they threw in a barely fit Gibbons instead of Kennedy against Mansfield after the Exeter game.

"I'd be tempted to throw Atkinson in at right back."    (valefan16)

...and there was me thinking that he was a left winger when he played for us before!!! Perhaps age has affected my recall facilities.

No it's not your facitlities, the player himself said he used to play there but as he has gotten older he's morphed into a holding mid that can cover at right back

I get that, but I feel like we would be shoehorning him in if he did play there.

I've not been Kennedy's biggest fan so far, but at least he is naturally a defender. I'd rather play Atkinson in his actual position in the middle if he's coming in. There's been times this year when weve been over run in the middle without Manny. Hopefully, this is what solves it.

Most of his 26 appearances for Mansfield last season were as either rightback or right wingback, so I'm not sure they'd be shoehorning in any more than playing Kennedy there would be. He certainly got more experience in that position than Kennedy at league level. Big question is whether he's match fit, if he is I'd say playing him would be a no brainer. More mobile, quicker, better distribution and more experience in the position.

I think we’ll see him at right back tomorrow and then when Gibbons is back he’ll end up being pushed into midfield at the expense of Taylor or Burgess.
