Match Thread: Port Vale v Grimsby Town


Recommended Posts

Can’t get carried away with that.... they are 23rd the league, we should be winning them.

Fuming with the players, all the <ovf censored> coming out of Legge and Popes mouth about playing for Askey and nothing going on behind the scenes, what a load of lies. It’s disgraceful and they should hang their heads in shame.

Let’s hope they carry on giving it a go, we need an Experienced manager in for Me.

Well done Conlon for picking up the armband, very well deserved, always gives his all and plays at least a 6 out of 10 each week.

I wouldn't overly get carried away as this is our worst team for as long as I can remember. You really didn't have to play well to beat us though and I think you have far more tougher challenges to co

Worrall creates all 3 goals. Get him off, should be scoring.

Shout out too to Adam Yates. Excellent, sensible summary on the game throughout. Well done lads. We can do it when we apply ourselves.

I thought it was great. Grimsby offered little resistance, but we had a fair few chances and looked solid at the back. Really enjoyed it, and bar Bolton, best since November (if we can agree on that).

Fair enough.

You say that but we have a raft of CVs... from which we literally get to choose who we prefer 😋

Does depend on the quality though.

Great players don't necessarily make great managers.

But if it is indeed an inverse relationship then Danny Pugh could turn out the greatest manager in our history.

With Michael Tonge as his number 2.

That was pleasing. We had a plan b before the 85th minute.

We never had a plan B before.  

Great to see Pugh and Co willing to take a risk and change the side around a bit during the early 2nd half to start closing Grimsby's chances, as they started to probe more.  This would not have happened previously.  We would have just kept on playing the same style and hoped they would not score.

Still not convinced playing 442 with the current players.  Grimsby had far too much of the ball in good areas first half for my liking.  Second half our change of formation changed that but meant we created less.

If we all stop bickering ladies and gents and breathe a sigh of relief tonight. 

Whether you like or dislike Askey, Pope or Worrall etc we have got a monkey of our back. 

We were in freefall and I was desperately concerned that we may be within touching distance of the bottom 2 this evening. 

Let's hope that we can stop looking at Southend Grimsby and Stevenage results and steady the ship towards calmer waters 

We aren't suddenly world beaters and they are pretty shocking at the moment, but as we have a poor recent record against them it's a great win 

Let's savour a rare good afternoon and save the nit picking and bickering for our next defeat

Rejoice for we have won

Agree with the comments about getting the game played today - kudos to the ground staff when other games were frozen off.  It was crucial not to get this game pushed on to later in the year in my opinion - it would have frustrated us when we wanted to impress DP, left us champing at the bit to make good the Mansfield debacle, and maybe even given Grimsby time to improve ahead of playing us.  As it is, we get three points, a clean sheet, stop the rot, get everyone feeling better about the club, and climb the league a bit (and yes, I know other teams have games in hand).  Playing 442 was also interesting to hear about - so let's enjoy this while we can and look forward to a better second half of season.

Don't think we played much better, but the luck element favoured us today, that improved the confidence,hence the goal and a good win with nearly a full squad to choose from,onwards and upwards, good luck Danny.

Stoke fans unhappy. Artell bleating. Up the Vale.

Deluded fans. They expect so much more v's 3rd in the table Premiership team.

 

The only call from stoke fans that was realistic was from a 12 year old on praise and grumble

Good start for DP. Pope, Woz and Hurst were excellent today. Pope and Woz created the goals between them. 

Pope and Rodney up front looks very promising, very effective for the 45 minutes. Was the sub at HT due to injury or tactical? I missed the post match interview, assuming there was one?

Nice to beat a poor side at home. We don't often do that! 

UTV!

If that performance continues v Forest Green next week, I'd look at giving it to Pugh until the end of the season. Carol can then sit down and look at the situation carefully and anay new manager would have the chance to build his own squad.

Don't forget, Rudgie was a number 2. As was Page (less successfully).

The sub was due to Rodney getting a knock Pugh said.

63% possession means nothing if you don't have an end game.

Full marks to the ground staff for getting the game on. Good timely three points, decent enough performance, from one to eleven an absolute disgrace. Where were they last week when John and Dave needed them.
