What are people’s thoughts on JA.

In my opinion, he was a breath of fresh air when he came in at Macc and was the only me interested. The problem blew was another late substitution. I started this thread and even though I’m satisfied with JA, I’d like to see Archer start. We have very little if nothing up front unless Pope starts. The proof if this is the fact that we’ve created very little in recent games against clubs all towards the bottom of the league. Archers time is long overdue. As was once said by the most famous philosopher, when you keep trying the same thing hoping to get a different result, then that’s the first sign of madness. As I’ve stated many times on here. I went to the friendly with a Bury and saw Archer torment and destroy the Vale defenders. You might say friendliest mean nothing and I’d agree with that. However it was this performance that made JA bring him to Vale. So give Archer a start or if he’s injured then say so. I’d guess he isn’t injured as against Oldham we had three forwards on the bench.

UTV

Archer’s shoulder still won’t be 100%. I think we will see more of him as the season goes on. 

He might not be the answer yet, but it would certainly give the CH’s something to think about knowing he has the legs on them.

If Askey has funds in January, I think he should go all out on the CMR position. If we got someone who could chip in with regular goals from there, it would make a massive difference.

On the flip side, he looked poor at Macc, though he wasn't the only one.

The poster you’ve quoted has a strange obsession with slating Bennett (despite him being our top scorer)

It is like Campion was the bees knees when he was not playing a couple of years ago.

He will get his chance as a sub to prove he is good enough to get in the team.

He has been injured so cant be up to it fitness wise.

Problem is with five forwards after one place up front it is going to be hard to get in the team.

Him and Cullen are ready to push for a first team place.

A lot difference from last year when it was Pope or Pope up front.

In response to Ernie Moss (I ballsed up the quote feature):

1 loss in 9, missing our two first choice midfielders.

No goals conceded from open play in our last 4.

Won our last away two games against teams who were top at kick off.

Unbeaten at home.

2 points off 7th, 6 off 1st.

Fantastic performance and memories today.

All on a reduced budget from last season and signings deemed 'not good enough'.

Vast improvement in Smith, Gibbons, Worrall, Joyce since he arrived.

Taylor, Burgess doing good jobs on a relative pittance.

Much better brand of football.

Askey isn't perfect but he's doing a good job. I know you're looking for attention but just thought I'd leave the above stats with you before I go and celebrate another good day for the Vale under John Askey. We have finished at the lower reaches of this table twice in succession, and when he took over there were some genuine concerns about non-league football this year.

Try and lighten up mate. You seem so negative at a time when the club's on a upwards trajectory for the first time in 4 years, and for the first time with solid foundations in about 20.

 

It’s great to see the improvement on the pitch... and even better it’s built on the solid foundation of owners who care about the club and whose are intentions are always for the good of Port Vale.

You would have to be a special kind of attention seeker / fan to disregard all the above and only focus on the failings of one squad player with continued vitriolic hatred! Some people are wired differently I guess!

Yes, but apart from that what have the Romans e=er done for us?

Ask the question after a game where we expect to get a result and don’t, (when this thread was Initially  started), then ask it after a win like the Crewe game and you’ll get different answers from some.

Great post. I don’t know if anyone’s listened to the recent excellent Spotify podcasts “talk of the vale” that have featured Gibbons and Legge, but both of them mention the difference in style under Askey. Legge goes a bit further talking about the negativity under Aspin. I know it’s stating the obvious but it’s probably another big reason why we’re seeing better performances from the players you mention.

Just not getting carried away.

Check the statistics.

Neil Aspin P 78 W 24 D 31 L 31 - 31 per cent

John Askey P 36 W12 D 11 L13 - 33 per cent

Maths wasn't my greatest strength but I did check the statistics and  24+31+31 = 86, if Aspin had 78 games what happened in the other 8 games ?

Not from me you won't. If were not pushing for a playoff place next season then maybe JA is underchachieving so a new manager for 21/22 - until then unless we end up in a dog fight no change of manager for me.

You can make stats suit any agenda (even one where you fake the stats to say what you want them to)

 

Ja took over a squad looking destined to go down last season and kept them up. It took him some time to get them playing the way he wanted and so I think it's unfair to judge him on a W% last season. Objective - keep us up. Objective achieved.

 

This season it's important to look at goals scored and win rate. Both stats look good to me!

Take out the first 4 when he was still working on the team and wasn't his team for last season as a whole and the picture is very different.

41% win record this season (45% if include the cup games)

23.5% loss record (25% if including Cup)

Pretty decent with his own built side.
