Match Thread: Port Vale v Swindon Town

Recommended Posts

Let me clear it up. The ref bottled it. That challenge is a red card all day long. Leon should have gone for it, but  the ref let the play continue  instead of blowing hard and giving him a red. Then  he didn't know what to do  after it was kicked out for a throw-in. As soon as i saw it, I said "Red card , his leg is broken " . Just my opinion, but Leon was a very lucky boy. 
 
 
Let me clear this up, you are talking absolute nonsense. It was a perfectly timed good tackle. He was under control, won the ball cleanly and didn't use excessive force. To me the injury occurred because of how their player fell after the tackle was made. I was amazed he booked him as he didn't blow for a foul. It was only when he saw he was in distress that he booked Leon. Never a foul.

From where I was, Legge slid in and got the ball. Their lad, on the stretch, tried to make a block tackle at the same time and the ball got trapped between them, transferring the energy through the Town player’s leg and jarring either his knee or ankle. It was a ball that was there to be contested and it just seemed like one of those things. The referee didn’t even award a free kick and I think he only booked Legge in the aftermath because he was frightened he’d missed something. A bit spineless TBH.
Their guy broke his leg, it seems. Not seen it, but it sounds like the ref, appreciating the severity of the injury, decided he'd better do something.

He didn’t blow, because he played advantage. No, if the ref booked him , then it was for a late challenge.What else would it be? Only it should have been red. He played advantage , the Swindon players saw their player in distress and kicked it out for a throw-in.  The ref then had to go back and redeem himself somewhat by booking Leon, probably not knowing that the player’s leg was broken. He knew soon after, when they stretchered him off to hospital. Nothing against Leon Legge , as he’s my favorite Vale player. That’s all I’ll say about it.  It’s a bad situation for any player. It’s over now.

Having watched it back Legge was lucky as his left leg was way up in the air and he jumped in. If he had been sent off he would have lost an appeal. I could just about see why the referee only gave a yellow and 20 years ago it wouldn't have been anything more. But of it had been a challenge by a Swindon player I would have been disappointed with just a yellow as most referees would have said he was out of control making the tackle and therefore reckless.

I’d like to thank the fans in the Railway paddock who showed respect for the Swindon player who was stretchered off by applauding him, so well done to all those involved.

i was hoping to finish 14th this season and no relegation worries by March, I think 3 definitely 6 more points will secure our league status. Ppl are talking of the play offs and why not, however if you look at the table we’re 7 pts behind third place. I understand it’s one step at at a time and I hope you don’t think I’m getting  (promotion inebriated). Yesterday’s performance as P.Sherwin has stated was like watching the Luton Town game. More 🇨🇴  needed for Monty, I believe it helps to motivate him, he’s part of our Vale family so let’s be part of his. Little things like this will always send a good message to other players and could possible influence their decision to sign for us a bit like the chant, ‘There’s, only one Jake Taylor’.

According to twitter he didn’t break his leg... some guy who knows the paramedic says it’s ligament damage but not broken

Tough tackle... not a red card. It’s done with. Time to move on and appreciate the wonderful performance.

Wellens Swindons manager is a bit sour, says both goals were deflected, Legges tackle was shocking,Vale players sliding in and breaking play up, Ref gave them no protection, reckons it took Pope over a minute to walk off,moaning about how many games they have to play at this time of the year.

Both goals were deflected???  The man is an idiot

Thought it was a fantastic performance. From the first whistle we got at them and never let them settle one bit. The two lads in the middle get about the pitch so much better than I’ve seen us have for years. They also shoot when get chance, what a refreshing change that is to see. 
 

Popey missed a couple of chances but the hold up play was once again top class. The first attempt he had I thought the keeper did really well in coming out quickly and spreading himself. The second was a one off snapshot that either land in the top corner or go wide. Can’t knock Tom today at all. Centre half’s we’re quality once again and Monty did well and didn’t make a mistake. 
 

great win and deservedly so al the swindon fans saying that we were a very good team and deserved the win. 
 

the difference is Jake Taylor and burgess for me. Take these two out and we lose energy and drive.

The Swindon chairman said to Carol, “ my god you’ve got a good team here” Carol replied, “ well yes we have.”

By the reaction of the players at the time, nobody thought it was a foul, that is why everyone played on and only stopped when it was obvious the youth was in pain.

To be fair , refs are told to stop the match  for a head injury , although he did get up fairly quickly. From what I saw on iFollow , Legge was very fortunate not to be sent off for the first tackle , resulting in their player being carried off. He was late and just went right through him. Just my opinion. 
How was he late? He got the ball seconds before the man!?

Sad that illness meant I had to miss this one. Did listen to it on the radio though; then late on I found a live stream on FB! Duh......

Great performance and great result. Play like that the rest of the season and I think we can look forward to 20/21, whether it's in L2 or playing Stoke in L1.

Everyone is playing for a place in ten squad for the Man City game, let’s hope the effort continues into the Macc game otherwise it will make this Swindon win (as good as it is) seem not that important. They could really kick in here and go into 2020 with some real momentum for the Top 7 places.

Polar opposite to the pathetic views of his manager then.  Wellens has obviously taken lessons from Fartell.  Spose he is speaking, ( making excuses to) the majority of fans back home, but when you have witnessed the match you make yourself look an idiot with comments like that,

All been said already so I'll keep it brief

- Proper Askey performance that; aggressive, organised, hard working

- Joyce, Burgess, and Taylor has somehow become our strongest midfield

- Legge and Smith were both near perfect defensively

- Monty is a good football player

- Legge's challenge was rash and the ref didn't blow as he signalled advantage. Initial attempt won the ball but he followed through, fairly high. It was unintentional but if he'd got a red I wouldn't have been shocked, but a yellow largely seemed fair (officials were very decent, Caddis theatrics aside). Weird to see Vale fans kick off at a clearly stricken player receiving treatment

- I thought Amoo played decently again
