I understand why people don’t want Sinclair as manager completely. I don’t understand where this complete hatred for him has come from. It’s a bit odd.

This isn't me getting all aboard the Sinclair train by any stretch. I'd be quite happy to wake up tomorrow morning to find Sinclair Pugh and half the playing staff have been shipped out by a new manag

The view that we “dipped” after Sinclair arrived is false. He was appointed in August. Prior to the Kings Lynn game we were flying high in the table and that was in November. In terms of coaching

For f's sake, grow up! "Lack of effort". Seriously?

He came out of his goal like bambi his indecision cost the goal as did his indecision with the second he should dominate the 6 yd box, the 3rd well sh2t happens that was the pitches fault.

In terms of coaching credentials he holds the UEFA A badge which I suspect is a higher coaching qualification that anyone on OVF and potentially higher than anyone currently at the club (I believe Pugh has his UEFA B badge).

The very simple fact is that a significant number of the playing squad are just not good enough. Of those who are good enough I would suggest only Conlon and Worrall (and perhaps Rodders) have performed at anything like their potential.

This season has become one of surviving both the 46 games to stay up and for the club to get through COVID. Once we have achieved those two things a huge rebuild job is required and such needs to be led by a quality managerial candidate.

Actually he's been here since March 2020

Someone has made a good point on FB. Whether Sinclair has been the cause of issues at the Club or not, what experience does he have to be a coach. Yeah years as a top player, however it doesn't guarantee he's good at coaching. His record in management is certainly shocking.

To be fair what made the likes of Glover and Grew any good as coaches? For years Vale ran a rubbish old boys network. 
 

I have no issue with the likes of Pugh and Sinclair at the club. We need a decent figurehead to lead them. Look at Rob Page...he has done so well getting to the level of Welsh national team boss and did well at Vale. 
 

I doubt that would have happened without having Adams to learn from.

What I would love is just a decent old head to help out these guys. Rudge was meant to be doing that was Aspin but I do doubt he is actually a relevant figure to do it. After all, he last managed 20 years ago! 
 

Anyone in touch we recent top level coaching methods, the game has changed a lot in 5 years.

I think "Smirkgate" is just a continuation of the conspiracy theory that all our problems are down to Sinclair's Machiavellian off-pitch activities...which have never been proven, nor, even, satisfactorily aired?

This quote from the article, however, is worrying: "...Sinclair is working with the defence to help the Vale as they look to push on and secure a place in the play-offs.

Askey added: “It is working on the shape of the back four and getting them to work together..."

Indecision is not the same as lack of effort. To accuse arguably our best player of the last few years of not trying is shameful. Some on here are acting like spoilt entitled toddlers.

I accused Brown of indecision yesterday NOT a lack of effort, a very good instinctive shot stopper but prone to be indecisive especially when he's rooted to the line like he was yesterday for the 2nd, what he has done over the last few years has no bearing on his performance yesterday.

It's fair enough to say he was indecisive yesterday, it was possibly his worst performance in a Vale shirt. My comment about someone saying there was a lack of effort for the first goal wasn't in relation to your post though.

Lack of effort for all three goals.

Terrible performance, againHis form alone does tell me that something is wrong within the club.

Indecision or couldnt be ar*ed. IF he is not happy off the pitch.

He is nowhere near the same player as last year
