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.

All the players called him Mr Pickwick, but in my presence as I had run on the pitch, one vale player called him Picky and he just burst out laughing.  The days of good old fashioned Refs making their own decisions and talking and explaining to players is long gone. Today we have politically correct ass holes .

Brilliant character and kept the crowd entertained with his short bursts of speed up and down the pitch.

Another cracking ref in my opinion who seemed to have loads of respect was Uriah Rennie 

Obviously ended up in The Premier for the end of his career. Took no crap . I'm sure Jacko will reference a petty Shearer sending off by him !!

Lower league refs for the past few seasons have been truly abysmal, a lot suffer from little man syndrome and are way way below the fitness levels required to ref competently.

Haven't we had him this season, or am I mistaken?

I'm not sure mate he might well be late 50's or even older now, so i think he has retired. Not 100% on that.

2 out and out strikers up front - like the fans have been asking for for years.

i much prefer 3-5-2, especially as we have no wing backs atm. Legge, Smith, Brisley

worrall and amoo as just wingers who track back, none of this striker/midfield sudo nonsense. Simple jobs done well.

Pope and Rodney together.

whoevers available from the obvious midfield hierarchy.

We’ll win, I genuinely think.

I'm not sure who is or is not available. I stand to be corrected.

Is Crookes still isolating? Legge must be suspended for 2 games. Conlon should be back. And we had one positive Covid test in the week didn't we?

It'll be interesting to see the team. Stick to 433 or try something different? Who plays in defence?

It is cold here, below freezing tonight and barely above that by midday tomorrow. A bright sunny day is forecast but will the pitch be too hard to play on?

What on earth does a ref do to become 'politically correct'? 😂

Imagine it will depend on lot of the shaded areas around the Lorne Street. Down to -3 tonight and as you say not forecast to get above freezing until lunch and then only just.

May be off this one.

I suspect a surprising 4-0 win. I think the brakes will come off and the players will throw all inhibitions in the air. I sense a Bolton esque freak scoreline. 
 

Does not make Pugh the answer however as it will be short term and misleading.

Best ref I ever saw was Mark Clattenburg. He really did make the effort to explain to players and his mannerisms and signals let you know why he'd made a decision. I felt he really considered he was part of the entertainment and wanted to keep the crowd involved in wha twas happening.

I fully agree, I was just confused about what being 'politically correct' had to do with bad/weak referees!
