Next Manager

Just for those saying we can afford to be patient and the appointment doesn't need to be greatly experienced now because we have Flitcroft DOF... and because we aren't going to struggle this season. Just look where we are if those below us win their games in hand. 

20. Barrow           32
21. Port Vale        32
22. Stevenage     29
23. Southend       24
24. Grimsby         24

Just putting it out there... 

Barrow would have to win their 3 in hand...they've only won 1 in 5 - like us! Grimsby haven't won in 5. I don't see this happening - especially as 2 of the teams don't have games in hand on us. Grimsby still have to play 4 of the teams above them...including us; Barrow still have 5 of those teams to play - including us; Southend still have 4 of those to play and Colchester 5, including us. It would be almost impossible for 6 of the 7 teams to overtake us. And, as I said before, some of these teams still play promotion-chasers!

Correct. Even if they do we're still miles clear, I don't really know what's up with people.

Cheer up and await the new head coach.

On on.

I know it was pretty much a lone voice but anybody who thought Ian Holloway made sense as Vale manager please watch just the last 5 minutes of Quest last night.

Challenged by his matey Colin Murray about what actually happened at Grimsby he proceeded to come out with absolute waffle and piffle otherwise known as bull**** .

Swerved the actual questions and is totally unhinged.  Yet was offered up on  here as a candidate. Laughable.

That's just how you survive as a manager in this day and age. Talk <ovf censored>. But yes one thing I'm grateful for our new set up is that it means there's no chance of Holloway being our new manager.

Southend ain't conceded a goal in last 2 games so they fighting hard to stay in the division ,Newport and Cambridge aswell we conceded 3 at Cambridge and one at Newport losing both ,we ain't out of it by a long stretch so hopefully a new man is appointed as soon as possible .

We have to do our work better than what we have done so far this season .

We have enough going forwards to score the goals required to stay up but defensively we have players who consistently give teams a leg up as proven with our many defeats so I'd like the new manager come in and change personnel around a bit to give us a chance to be in league 2 again next season .

So a new manager is imperative ,pugh has being at the club all season he must have seen what we have all seen and if not, why not and what does anyone at Port Vale see in him that he could have used and aided Askey with, the fact that when Askey was struggling no one stepped up to help him and there the ones still at the club Pugh Sinclair and the rest tells me they were happy seeing him fail and lose his job so that they could get the job but forgetting the players who were making errors galore get Askey the sack would still be picked and get them removed also I'd have preference for a new broom ,sweep them all out ,but because Carol is fond of the staff who there while we were failing and backs them i will give her because she's great the benefit of the doubt.

However short term we need win games how you do that with players making mistakes galore is the answer the new manager must find if indeed there is going be one as v Tranmere and Scunthorpe away I've seen enough of Pugh Sinclair to state wholeheartedly go back to your other jobs

I think our biggest problem recently is that we have created chances but not always finished them. Rodney has that ability to just lash the ball home when he gets a chance but we don't have enough other players with that goalscoring instinct. Taylor looks like he might be able to recover it after his goal the other day though.

Can’t see us going down purely on the points we gained early season but our goal of staying up is a disgrace on what was expected this season, I only had 4/1 on promotion at the start of the season. The replacement of Askey has taken far too long and yes, it must be the right person but I do not think we are any closer to getting this person than we were 6 weeks ago.

He knew he'd dropped a clanger with his appalling summer recruitment and jumped ship before he sank it.

I was looking at Grimsby's recruitment over the summer and it was either untested youngsters, 33yo journeymen or non league players. It was either going to spectacularly work or spectacular fail. "Scattergun approach" sprang to mind.

It's the cowards way out to leave them in a mess like he did just to avoid yet another blemish on his CV.

Well that’s nothing to do with me or any fan. If that’s the case then why not tell the powers that be? If he was such a bad coach he would have been sacked. More ‘in the know’ rubbish? 

I'm sure the Ale and the Vale podcast have said on several occasions they have had contact from our players who have said its rubbish about Sinclair. No issues at all and a really good bloke.

Did you not see his performance against Grimsby???
Pope definitely has a role to play and plenty to offer.

I did. If his name wasn't Pope most would be saying something different.

Basically he looked a decent goal threat in two games upfront against the two worst defences in the league.

In the age of 22 man squads he is waste of a squad player and the wage.

If next seasons aim is mid table then you might as well give Pope a 12 month contract if the aim is the play offs then we need a couple of new and decent strikers as well as fresh faces throughout the squad

Strikes me that there have been several factors in play.

Firstly, sacking Askey was not in the grand plan.

This led to a review of strategy which has taken time. No quick fix this time round.

In some ways, this slowing down has probably moved the club forward much more quickly than anticipated. So there has been much to consider at a time of the season when root and branch changes are not generally advisable.

It appears to me that Carol has had to have a major rethink and is taking the time required to get the structure right for the foreseeable future.

For some, this will be a waste of a season.

For me, it's the next stage of the development of the club.

To put it in context, I'm of the view that we are supporting a phoenix club that somehow didn't go out of existence, and is consequently starting at a much higher level.

There's so much to do to simply survive.

Carol is attempting to create the conditions for us to flourish.

I don't know what he's like as a person so I wont comment but his coaching has to be questioned 2 wins for the youth team all season. No improvement in the first team since he's been with them and the rugby incident. When I've watched training all they seem do is 2 touch football you would think with our problems in defense an ex defender would spend a lot more time doing defensive drills.

Can i just say i have never said once i am in the know,my choice is just that i have taken a dislike to him and going off his record with the youth team this season and perhaps i should know better but listening to what was said from his previous club. We all take a dislike to someone to do with the club whether thats high up,coaches,certain players i guess

On on.

Look at the form table over the last 10 games (even worse if look over longer period) we are looking to achieve around 46 points. It only takes 2 teams down there to pick up a few wins and we are right in the dogfight.As we have seen all season WE DON'T HAVE PLAYERS WITH CHARACTER to be in a relegation scrap.1137650973_Screenshot2021-02-14at11_09_21.png.a462f1fbc1a00bfe09cf5a4fbc4f1edf.pnge

If the 22 man squad thing is scrapped do you think then he is worthy of a player/coach role?
