Sinclair says we’re after another forward. Who is? Who exactly is finding these players? Does my head in. We should have had a proper manager in place signing players not <ovf censored> Danny Pugh and frank Sinclair. 

Is the scouting team involved or is it just lads who Pugh and Sinclair knows?

Taylor is an ex-player. Guthrie we've been after for two years. 

Lazy.

Very telling words  I'd really really really love to know why there was neither a minutes silence or a minute applause for the very sad loss of one of our own Charlie and a superb player from our

I'll make some fairly controversial comments here.  We're being let down by the entire club, at present. There is a complete abandonment of anyone to take a decision and sort this chaos out. We'r

Here is the issue. £1m loss due to the pandemic. I accept that. I can accept what she said in the RS interview about the ramifications of it. I don't accept the excuse that a new manager wou

Frank Sinclair obviously watching a different game. Here's a tip Frank, get someone else to do your interviews

He sounded like an absolute bullshitting knob. Can't believe he said the boys were fantastic today!! GET RID!!

We dont need another forward, we are crying out for a commanding reliable central defender. How can they not see this? As soon as we tighten up at the back, results will start to improve.

Im sorry for Carol, she now knows it is tough. So get tough and stop the crap that is happening. And sorry Carol most of it is your fault. You put the coaches etc in charge.

You can only appoint who's available, who's affordable and who wants the job.

think they need to be looking at the other end of the field, you build a team from the defence

You have Pugh saying we’ve got a ‘very good squad’ and now Sinclair praising us getting torn apart. Couldn’t make it up

Nope. Time to go 442. Sinclair says we've done well with 442 (one game against the worst side in the league). they're already planning for next season. We go again.

Sinclair has just said they are looking for a partner for Guthrie - is he going on bloody Strictly??

I think the club need to accept reality that we don’t have the creativity in midfield to blame strikers. In terms of opportunities Guthrie may as well have been Robinson as neither had any real chances. Cullen seemed a bit more creative but really only Rodney has shown the ability to create something from nothing.

Possibly the worst right back ever , makes Kevin Steggles and Wayne Ebanks look like Cafu .

And I'm sorry I know he has his fans on here but the opposite full back is the absolute epitomy of average. At very best performance he's a steady 6.5/10 , in general he's rubbish .

The worst full back pairing in living memory

Agree

At best squad players. We may have been unlucky with Gibbons and his injury. Usually his cover would be a couple of suspension and the odd game or so.

Not left back though. If we were playing monty then his cover would be playing 15 games minimum and Fitz is nowhere near good enough.

Again probably unlucky that both have played a dozen or so games but it has showed up how poor they are.

I was extremely disappointed to hear that she hadn't been through the candidates that had applied and has handed it to Pugh..

I said exactly that 2 weeks ago, and got ridiculed for it. The alarm bells started ringing then, and now they're almost deafening.

Unfortunately - and I don't wish to be critical of Carol at all as she has done wonders for this club, breathed life into it, in fact - but a few of her comments of-late regarding on-the-pitch matters have raised concern :-

- "we stick together through thick-and-thin and are loyal and fair" (said weeks before Askey was finally sacked)

- the whole "don't want to distract from this season" reason for giving it to Pugh and not looking at manager applications

- "we've got Billy and Griff around to help Danny out" (straight away I thought that they've been coaching schoolkids, and are then suddenly helping out with the 1st team squad?!)

The manager is the most important employee at a football club, and trying to coast/fudge the job and the managerial team is a very dodgy strategy.

What a load of rubbish, are you saying we had the best what was available?

Loads. Loads of managers available. We just actually have to look rather than phoning every <ovf censored> that has played for vale previously or had some connection to the club in the last few years.

That’s at least 30 years ago now. 21 years nearly since we were last in the 2nd tier. 

yes but proof the club can achieve if run properly. wycombe lincoln yeovil have all done far better than us in the last 15-20 years and they are no bigger by any sense of the imagination. get a proper manager and let him build a team.

They are going for the option of we score more goals than our defence let in.  However, the striker will have to do it by himself rather than having another striker to help him.  As they wont change the formation from 4-3-3
