Match Thread: Mansfield Town v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

Perhaps it's injuries, suspensions, unhappy players, who knows.

I do remember many posters on here dishing Rob Page for lack of ambition and settling for a mid table league 1 spot.

How many on here would want Rob Page back?

I think he would be a damned site better fit than the merry go round  Managers mentioned so far. 

Holloway would be a massive mistake IMHO

What a disappointing thing to read from a fellow vale fan.

I’ve tried to calm down but I can’t, I’m so livid still. I can take losing, I’m a Vale fan so it happens fairly regularly, if we play well but are beaten by the better team, give it all but have an

Typical OVF meltdown today. We’ve only lost one game in 2021.

I think the criticism of Page is overblown. Most were fairly satisfied? Might have been the odd numpty or three.

It's become a bit of a cliche to beat fans who want to see a change of manager. I can never remember much opposition (a few a bit bored with him), and remember being shocked when he went to Northampton.

Let’s believe when we see it.  I see a wildly successful meals on wheels scheme and a dire, struggling league 2 team that even Norman Smurfwaite would feel ashamed of. 

In fact he used to come out with all sorts of bull stories about Championship in five years etc. 

About time we saw some actual outcomes delivered. Not fairy tales. 

Then you are a clown.

Yes .... I deliberately left him off the list, but where does he lie in the heirachy. Who does he report to, Garlick presumably, in which case JA has a point.

If that's the case what I don't get is why doesn't Askey say something if he doesn't like it?  He was there before Sinclair.  Although I can probably guess if he walked away(especially now) there is no way he'll get another league job and no pay off(if he resigned).  Poor form from the owners to allow it to happen though, but Carol clearly thinks the sun shines out of Sinclair's arse too from reading her twitter posts but yet if they like Askey as a person too I just don't get it?

What did Askey mean when he says " We have had a lot of things to deal with " 

I read it as COVID related.

Players missing games through isolation.

Players not being able to train.

Etc

But surely it's the same for all clubs?

I'll openly admit I was a bit in the bored category. It was frustrating away from home, seemed a regular occurrence, concede 65th minutes onwards and lose. However we were in a higher division and some of the football at home was excellent. Beating Wigan 3-2, beating Sheff utd, plenty of others. 

Think was a case of not realising how well we were doing. Just felt we held back the reins under him . 

Certainly a case of doom and gloom since he went. Undoubtedly the worst appointment of all was Brown.

i think whoever said Carols lad was doing that tongue in cheek

Yep - I don't actually think that Carol's son is pretending to be Danny Whitehead in order to get a game.

(.....I reckon he's really Zak Mills! 🤣)

I disagree. If there is something wrong he should say it rather than cryptically mentioning it every week (he shouldn’t mention it all, but already has)

If there are problems In your workplace, that could be management issues, a colleague problem or direct report personnel issues, the very last thing you would do is call them out publicly and tell the whole workplace what the problems are which you have been dealing with.

I posted before I think it was an error on his part in a very emotional state after the game to have mentioned anything.

Me too, I just thought that he was saying that we may have been impacted by injury and absence more than other clubs.  
 

I love a good conspiracy theory but apparently not as much as some others.😀

Just sounds way out of his depth and no lifeboat coming his way. Managers need to have a bastard hat they can pop on,not sure he's got one. Don't really feel like pouring water on a drowning man ,but something has to happen and quickly.

I don’t really mind if others think that, I just feel that we supported Carol in good faith and it is fair that we see some outcomes. 

Clowns are entertainers, just like footballers are meant to be. Except I’m not being entertained by our current shower. 

I want to see Vale play and win football matches. Instead we have become a dire team to watch with a glorified soup kitchen attached.

There is only one appointment I can see us making and that’s Micky Adams. That’s if he fancies coming out of his hiatus for another stint as our manager. 

Been thinking that for a while, we can dream

I bet Norman is laughing his socks of at all this. He is the real problem. Carol and Kevin are just trying to sort the mess he left behind.

Indeed. Norman is the real winner in all of this. Still getting installments, got a great price for the club and loving life. 

I agree, he caused hell for the club and remember....Askey is his man.

Is he black? 

You can't ask that nowadays

I only meant it tongue in cheek on the luck front thing. Although luck had nothing to do with it today. I love black cats. We have two. Who are wise enough to do one when Vale are playing.

Derek Adams may go to Motherwell, who's manager resigned this week. There's no point JA telling half a story. His job is on the line so defend yourself and explain, which would give you credibility at least.
