Match Thread: Port Vale v Leyton Orient

Recommended Posts

Well, Rodney is quite quick and strong, BUT poor touch, anticipation and awareness of the where ball is going. Too often watching, or on his heels when the ball is a few feet away and there for his taking. Needs a transplant of some of Pope's nous, but is he already too old to learn enough?
I think all of those points are fair.

I also think that we have had more time on the ball in the midfield because he is on the pitch.

Their line is 5-10 yards further back creating more space for the other players.

His touch is frustrating as he has shown in games that he can control the ball. Its almost as if he switches of before he has controlled the ball when he has a little bit of space.

Stop turning on each other with abuse its ridiculous.  Disagree by all means . We are all sick to death of what's going on but abusing others is crackers   

But everyone was delighted that all the players we had last season re-signed.  Folk were orgasmic when Smith re-signed.  Yet now they're rubbish, too old, etc.  Some re-writing of history going on on

I know it’s sacrilege to suggest it but does anyone else think Scott Brown has fallen below his usual extremely high standards recently?

With the lack of goals from open play we need to make the most of these set pieces.


we look fragile mentally.  Started brightly enough but you can literally see the impact of the goals on the players.

hopefully a goal the other way will pick the team up.

There have been chances but we need to be more clinical.
