Match Thread: FLT 32 Port Vale v Wolverhampton Wanderers U21


Recommended Posts

Yeah thought Wolves were by far the best U21 team we’ve played so far. Some good footballers, fitness looked an issue as they were dead on their feet after 70 minutes at which point we could of had ended up winning 4 or 5-1 but would of been harsh on them.

If you compare them to Liverpool who we opened up many times and should of had far more than the 4 we did get they looked further on.

The number 60 was outstanding

Seems as though he did..

That's better VFIA , Smithy doing an Andy Porter role. These are the line ups we love. Keep it up 😃  

Could have started much better but after that first 25 mins I thought that was OK. Don't understand the comments about McKirdy. He looked a handful with lots of movement, which is something we ha

Everyone slating mckirdy on here when they literally know nothing about him and seen him play 3 times. The boy has clearly got talent when hes on his game he can run at people and make things happen. Something we severly lack we are still early on in the season it might be he is adjusting to how we play and isnt ready to start at the moment. But people calling him dim and slating his personality when they literally no nothing about him is wrong. From speaking to one of the players he gets along with all the lads and doesnt cause any trouble so maybe hold back on making up your chinese whispers about him unsettling the squad and give the lad a chance. Even if he doesnt start he is a great option to have on the bench if we are needing a goal in a game

Theo Corbeanu, Canadian. His name kept coming up on the commentary and I think he hit the woodwork at least once. 

He did yea second half with a great hit to be fair.

First time we’ve played an U21 side and felt we were at risk of losing the game. Usually they are like training games which we win without getting into top gear but we soon found out that we would have to up it last night.

You might only have seen him three times but he played for Crewe against us and chucked Whitfield over the advertising hoardings then played for Carlisle against us last year and did nothing but chuck himself to the ground every five minutes and whinge at the ref.

He did well last night and showed what he is capable of when he puts his mind to it. I hope Askey is persuading him how to make a career in football and we see the best of him in coming months.

If we're going to try untested youngsters, I'd much prefer that we give our own a chance first, such as RCG and Agho

Agreed, I would prefer not to have any loan players, unless they are on trial before signing.

A win and through to the next round didnt watch so can not comment on the game .

Seen the highlights Wolves U21s can count themselves very unlucky to lose .

I also listened to Askeys  post mmatch interview and he was saying most of the players have not being able to train .

That baffled me that I think he meant a lot of the players were not match ready and hadn't had game time .

Anyway Mckirdy scored and also made there goalie make a great save and Mills took his goal well and Hurst should have sealed it .

Money in the club that's the most important thing and 2 wins on the bounce .

Hahah so he chucked one of our players who cares id love see him doing that for us he gets under peoples skin and is a character i personally would love to see someone like that in our team

 

and to counter your arguement of vale fans not liking him because of him at crewe. 
Lee hughes murdered someone and i dont remember him getting this much stick for breathing

Ah, so you think Vale fans should have applauded him for committing GBH against one of our players?  And you have a short memory if you have forgotten the amount of stick the club got when Lee Hughes was signed.

You do rather miss my point about why fans were sceptical when Harry McKirdy signed.  Their experience of him was not the best.  If he performs to the best of his ability at Vale though, all will be forgiven.

My problem with McKirdy is that he moves around too much - leaves big gaps for others to cover, second half it was clear Askey had told him to hold his position more because first half Mills was constantly left open to their left winger.

It’s ok having all these tricks but we struggle to defend at the best of times having McKirdy wandering all over doesn’t help especially as often he loses the ball too easily - too much of a luxury player for me - that’s my opinion and I know some will disagree

Huge difference when Worral came on - better structure and better crosses which with Pope in the middle is what you need

If McKirdy has been given licence to roam, then it's up to the other players to be sharp enough to close down the spaces he creates? Gascoigne and Hoddle were given similar roles and they didn't do too bad for their teams. I know we're not in the same League...literally...but our boys just need to be focused, expecting that this might happen. Incidentally - the games against Prem teams are allowing us to do some free scouting - Millar (?) from Liverpool looked a prospect, and a couple of Wolves' lads were picked out for praise. Always worth keeping an eye on?

Apologies for echoing comments made by others - I should have read right through, first!
