Match Thread: Port Vale v Scunthorpe United


Recommended Posts

I don’t like reacting negatively about a Vale loss, but that was just totally unacceptable. Very one dimensional, too many sideways and backwards passes. Cullen was awful, absolutely awful. Crookes at LB? Why? He isn’t a LB. Why John, why? Back to the drawing board now. Give McKirdy a start, he’s looked lively again tonight. Bring Monty back in at LB. Give Legge a rest, he looks f*cked. I like Legge, but a change is needed. The only problem is, Brisley has looked sluggish and I’m not convinced by Crookes. 

Six points dropped over the past two games. We have shot ourselves in the foot. 

I like Askey, and I genuinely believe he can take us forward. But, it’s now time to reassess his options because we are looking short of any form of confidence and guile.

I’m still not having this ‘Askey out’ business. People are entitled to their opinions and I can see why people are frustrated. Just remember, we are 12 games in. Every season has its ups and downs. Last season was a prime example.  

A bit of luck would be nice. Nothing is dropping our way at the moment. 

Thanks Vale, that’s another night of mine you’ve ruined. The joys of being a football fan...

Booooooooooooooo Abysmal 10 days to be a Vale supporter 

Our fan base is an embarrassment at the moment. We are outside the playoffs on goal difference and you want the manager sacked. Christ.

Chopping and changing managers regularly rarely ends well. Managers need time to get it right. Slow but sure progress is all I ask for, and I do think that's what we're getting. Unless a manager has c

So who would you replace Askey with ? Those wanting him out ? No fans in maybe until next season , no revenue . Who do you think we could bring in on a shoe string to improve things ?

We are 8th in the league having nearly had no football to watch due to

-going out of business
-global pandemic
-non league and probably going out of business.

Tonight was <ovf censored>, Saturday was a freak game and the cup game, well numerous other league teams had the same happen.

Just enjoy the ride, we might win Saturday and all will be forgotten.

I for one would be over the moon at alexander over askey

I'd take the corpse of Alexander the Great over Askey. Even long time dead he'd have more personality about him.

I don’t think Carol would be happy putting money and effort into something that isn’t working or she has no belief in. She is a very decisive person who does not do half measures. 
 

I think when Askey does go, it won’t be a drawn out campaign with daft press comments like we had under Smurfwaite over several months. 
 

This idea that Carol is some kind of fairy godmother figure isn’t right, I always felt she wanted a community club and wants success as much as the next fan. 

She did say we won't finish 8th again to be fair.

I'll predict 14th 😅

Some of you need to get a grip.

Saturday, we threw the game away after Joyce stupidity.

Tonight, a few decisions go our way and we win by a landslide.

We have a solid team without many super heroes but that pays off over a full season. If you've ever been involved with football, you understand that. Don't expect to win every week. Be competitive and with a decent squad and solid manager, good things happen.

Decisions or not. That was shocking. Starting from team selection. Despite what you say Tranmere will finish higher than us. They have a team with goals in them. To be fair i am not so sure about their defence. Scunthorpe are poor but they beat us without breaking sweat.

We might bounce back against Newport but i do doubt it. They too have goals in them. We have very few.

We have a solid team you say, without super heroes. Dont know about that but i know we have no goals in our entire squad.

Not sure if Askey is a solid manager either. Better than the last two or three but not convinced. Cannot understand why he thinks we have goals in this squad let alone the eleven he chooses

Where are the ups? Must have missed them. Out of all the cups, bar the Papa Smurf’s or whatever it is called and dreadful efforts in the league.

Last season, we played so well post Christmas,  but even before then, looked far better than now.

Pope should be playing every minute of every game when fit and available. Cullen is not (and never will be) a lone striker. 

Utter garbage tonight. Such a contrast to Saturday when I thought we were excellent at times. 

Manny is useless, wish we had Jake Taylor here instead of him. Manny and Cullen were useless tonight and I can't believe such an awful team with practically no quality at all have beaten us. 

Some good away wins predictably followed up by some tame home defeats. Is that three or four home defeats on the trot now? Must be a long time since that has happened. 

One up front at home is a joke. Sort it out JA!

How did Page out go?

How did Bruno out go?

How did Brown out go?

For the first time in 4 appointments we have improved when changing the manager. It may not be very entertaining at the moment but lets give him more than 12 games of slight regression before we make the same mistake.

Page was forced out by Smurf not sacked he walked due to Smurf cutting the budget and slating him in public.

I can't speak for other vale fans but I was happy with page in charge. Thought he did a decent job
