We weren't chosen for live coverage when we drew man city in the 3rd Round of the FA cup so I seriously doubt a third round carabao cup tie against an average PL team would be chosen

Funny that...salford v everton on tele tomorrow.

Sky. Gary Neville. Nuff said.

I for one think Askey did absolutely the right thing with the team last night. The League Cup has never been kind to us and we’ve had two difficult away draws, plus what’s the point of having a p

We should be aiming to win this. If the Everton game is on sky, that's a lot of revenue. If it isn't, we will still get as much or maybe even more revenue from Vale and Everton fans buying it through

I've been impressed with Hurst. Sure some people watch the game with their backs turned to the screen. He's caused their right back all sorts of trouble. He's a young lad developing. Of course he'll h

You watched the actual one. VFIA who consistently watches another game. Should have changed his name to Vale fan on another planet.

What game did you watch ?

I watched all the game pal ,I see if we had gone full strength like we should have we would be looking forwards to a payday v Everton on sky etc .

Lets have your insight into the game instead of mocking of me what are your views of the game we’re you impressed with Robinson ,Fleetwood deserved win they had more possession,more goal attempts and were worthy winners .

We treated it as get some minutes into players and apart from 20 mins in second half did not perform .

When I heard the team news and they had put out there first team I thought that we were going out and over the 90 mins I was proven right .

5/6 changes yes but 10 I thought well straight away we want to exit this competition as we had handed the  iniative straight to Fleetwood .

Over the 90 they were worthy winners they passed the ball better than us and with the help of a homer ref who constantly gave them free kick after free kick they deserved to progress .

As for Vale was impressed with Crookes at centre half Oyeleke/Whitehead had good games and Hurst looks a right decent player .

Robinson never won a header apart from heading wide late on ,he was poor missed a good chance first half and never got going ,yet Askey left him on so he must have seen something .

Mckirdy set up the goal ,seems like he as something about him but isn’t fit and Montano after a bit of a dodgy first half I thought was solid and decent as the game went on .

Dan Trickett Smith never got going a big ask paying against decent professional in Whelan .

Brisley was solid enough was weird seeing him playing the right side of defence with him being left footed ,winning goal for them was a very poor effort from whoever Morris’s man was think it was either his man or Millsy man .

Visser was very good two very good saves and no chance with the goals which from a Vale perspective were very poor but well worked and taken from a Fleetwood perspective .

My marks

     Visser 7 

Mills 5 Brisley 6 Crookes 7 Montano 6 Hurst 7 Oyeleke 8 Whitehead 7 Mckirdy 5 Robinson 3 Dan Trickett Smith 4 

Subs Worrall 7 Burgess 5 Joyce 5 

I felt similar. I think 5/6 changes would have kept a spine of a team which would have been recognisable and a useful benchmark for league games. A whole 10 changes gels is nothing if those players can player together or if it is a valid team to put out in future.

The League Cup has never been kind to us and we’ve had two difficult away draws, plus what’s the point of having a plum tie against Everton when you can’t go and see it?? 

Last year we had a good 11, this year we’ve got a strong 22+ and all of those players will want game time otherwise there will be some discontent which we don’t want. That is the trade off.

Last night was arguably the least important game of the season for me but one where we’ve seen a battling generally performance against strong opposition, game time for younger players (Hurst, DTS) plus seen our reserve goalie put in a very good performance.

I’m sure there’d have been an opportunity to stream the game which which would have brought in much needed finance. We got so excited about being involved in that pointless trophy competition last season that brought in a reported £100k that took numerous games to achieve. Yes the money was good but the effort drained our players and could be the reason we missed out on a play off or promotion
