For those who criticise Vale,Oldham fans are very impressed with the Vale team,many stating they're the best team that they have played so far.Latics forum is the place for the praise.

He's got a busy day tomorrow.  Washing Askeys car apparently. 😂

I am just glad that Tyler's weekend hasn't been ruined. 😉

We’re what 10 games into the season? He and the others should be fit. 

Match fit not physically fit, you need games for that. Anyway, Burgess was fine today. I felt Robinson didn’t look match fit though.

A much needed 3 points today, it will keep some of the moaners on here quite for a bit! 

The first half was excellent. We could have had three or four in the first 20. Credit to Amoo, he was absolutely superb. It just shows how much we’ve missed his outlet down the right. The team performance in the first 45, is one of the best I’ve seen for a long, long time. 

I was relatively pleased with the second half, it was obviously not as good as the first, but we still looked pretty solid and never really looked like conceding a second. The only danger was from their corners, but we defended well as a whole against them. 

As a whole, it was the most pleasing 90 minutes so far this season. We fully deserved the 3 points after that special first 45 mins. 

Where are all the David Worrall bashers today???? He was excellent today. The criticism he has received this season has been questionable. He once again showed his class. 

Disagree with the criticism of Robinson, he played well yet again today. He linked the play well, held the ball up and worked his socks off. He was unfortunate not to get on the score sheet. 

I can’t fault anyway today, they all played well. Burgess looked good. Mitch is very, very good. Joyce and Conlon ran the show. The MOM though has to Smithy. Great header and an even better defensive showing. 

Today was more like the Vale we expect and want to see. Credit to Askey, he got his tactics and substitutions spot on.

Didn’t look match fit? Fatigue crept in during the second half, but that’s understandable considering how much game time he’s had recently.

Robinson is the man to persevere with. 

No point continually chopping and changing, goals will come. 

Weirdly I didn't notice Burgess that much which means he went about his job and was quietly effective. 

Very good to see us out of the blocks from the off. 

Looks like Mr Kewell will struggle to hold this job down for long too , be playing Notts County next season which will be nice for him. 

The big black guy from their midfield really impressed me, anything decent he was involved

2nd week in a row that’s now happened.

Unfortunately it means nothing to some on here.

As Popey said in his article, the performances are starting to gel and improve.

WE WILL HAVE UPS AND DOWNS... can we all just agree not to have a Brain fart meltdown whenever we next lose.

Whilst I'm pleased with today, can we stick the logic that has been put forward on this forum over the last few weeks, and 'not get carried away with one result' and 'give it X number of games'?

Same people shutting down any (imo justified) criticism of our start based on a small sample size are tonight victory lapping, with 8 games seemingly being the acceptable time to form judgements, as opposed to 7 games or fewer, possibly as this result supports their views and the previous result didn't (also known as cognitive bias).

If we're going to shut down criticism on the basis of giving it time, let's also hold back on the 'TylerB looks a right fool tonight!' and the 'where are the player X haters this evening?' business on the basis of giving it time too.

Nobody wants to shut down criticism, Joe, but what I find annoying is criticism purely on the basis of the result and ignoring the performance.

Im a bit lost with both the "Robinson isn't the man" and "they were the better team second half" narratives.

It was probably Robinson's best game in vale shirt for me and if it wasn't for Piergiani heading it onto the crossbar he'd have had at least one today.

Overall I thought we contained what little they offered from start to finish. Maybe slightly shaky at corners but overall as soon as the second goal went in it was clear to see we'd win it.

That's fair.

That said, there have been a few games in which performance and result were sub-standard.

I'm still not sure about this season. I'm happy to let it play out but it seems many on here are keen, either way, to make big conclusions when in reality we've been fairly inconsistent on a game by game basis, both performance and results-wise.

I thought against Salford we were better than at Morecambe. At Cambridge we were better than Salford in the first half and today we were as good as we’ve been all season. Performance and result together in sync!
