Match Thread : Macclesfield Town v Port Vale

Recommended Posts

Macc were better than us ,but Vassell and the keeper were clowns, trying to goad a reaction from the Vale fans,maybe a fine for Macc for failing to control there players.similar to the fine Vale had  the other day.

I wouldn’t describe it as forgettable. The complaint opposite. Thenplayers should be reminded of it and training tomorrow morning. 

The problem is they think that they just have turn up to beat sides lower than them.

The problem is these sides are fighting to stay in the league and will not just roll over to have their bellies tickled.

We have to match them with desire to win.

We have a run of winnable games (including Crewe) but must perform from start to finish or we will get punished.

Today we had the perfect goal start then allowed them back in the game with sloppy play.

We shouldn’t feel sorry for teams like Macclesfield and hammer them when we have the chance.

They will be paid now, following the fantastic away support from Port Vale supporters.

Our players ought to pay them. Not fit lace the Macc players boots today.

This time last year we’d just been thumped 6-2 by Lincoln. We were 16th on 14 points, W4 D2 L7. Interestingly we’d scored only 13 but concede 19, albeit 6 were in that game. With our position now, W4 D5 W4 with 3 more points and 18 scored but 20 conceded.

On the face of it, we haven’t really made much progress.

Yet is more experienced than a Crookes on whom it is often open season on here

Gibbo had an off day. Crookes never has an on day. He is not a LB sorry. Woeful again today. His agent Sproson never mentioned his numerous cack ups today, whilst hammering Gibbo and Smith time after time, and belittling Macc. Woeful from Vale, woeful from RS.

The number of goals that come from our left hand side needs addressing and quick,the ball for their 2nd goal was embarrassing.

Very true, he does need to be dropped but I think he’s got to cosy with not having no real competition especially with the injury s in midfield.

 

id be putting Taylor there at LB and having a middle 3 of Joyce, Atkinson and Burgess give something Crookes to think about

We haven't to be honest mate. A bit, but not much. Today was embarrassing. Bested by Macc. Tells you where we are.

Both full backs were hopeless exposed because our midfield was so narrow.

This is quite interesting showing how sloppy we were for their winning goal,also think the lad sums up the game pretty well.

That’s a 21.5% improvement if you consider points alone.

It would be much much more if you consider performances... and yes today’s was terrible, but this season will not be decided on individual games... to say we haven’t made much progress is a bit of an overreaction.

Depends how you look at it. We look far worse defensively. We’ve improved drastically up top and at home but definitely haven’t away from home. i think we are better than last year (not difficult) and impressed against some decent sides at home. But games like macc we should be going there for the 3 points and winning. I read a post earlier saying why should we just expect to beat them? The reason is they’re a very poor league 2 side. Most of their players would be get in another league 2 team. Very disappointed today and can’t see where we will win an away game. Just got to hope we keep churning out good displays at home I guess.

We weren't the only ones in L2 to come unstuck against lowlier opponents today. Northampton being stuffed at Scunthorpe has to rank alongside our result today as being unexpected.

A bad day at the office - every team has them. I expect a reaction against Stevenage; if we don't get one then and only then will I start to get worried.

Scunthorpe have a much better squad than macc.

You can analyse from whatever angle you want. Fact is we were rubbish and well beaten. Macc are better than us. That simple. And that is where we are at.

Bad day at the office, I think today Askey felt knew the place and pitch so well that he ended up carried away with the game plan and ultimately got it wrong on the day. The midfield didnt work, it looked disjointed and we ended up getting outdone in a narrow midfield scramble with no outlet down the flanks....the big away following probably spurred macc on as if it was a cup tie and we didnt have enough guile to get to grips with the fight

Not overly concerned though, at this stage we could only ever be a work in progress after Normans reign of terror. We're considerably better than we were last season, and i still feel even after todays poor showing that on balance we're heading in the right direction
