I don’t know what got into Birchall... maybe he saw Yates get the plaudits for being direct with his comments and has copied him to try and forge his career as a pundit... but he was way over the top. Sounded a bit daft at the end.

You are better than that Chris.

Gutted after that. We deserved something from the game. But that strike proves what having quality in your squad can do. I wouldn't back any of our players to come up with a moment like that to win a game. Really disappointed. Its going be tough going until the end of the season weve just got to pray we can do enough. Really sad state of affairs we are in. 
 

nobody can get on clarkes back hes quite clearly got the players playing for him but they just arent good enough.

Workmanlike, disciplined but missing quality. Particularly in the final third. Ultimately, far too many of our key players are out injured at the moment.

I thought Cambridge paid us a bit of respect, got men behind the ball at times during the game but it felt ominous that a sucker punch was coming. At least to a pessimist like me anyway.

Neither Guthrie nor Robinson look like players who are capable of putting the ball in the net.

I know people have said our  strikers have been working hard but the reality is their first job is to score. Thats why they exist. A midfielder can get away with a hardworking performance but strikers are judged by the goals scored column. That is their primary role, good strikers score goals. Ones who arent play in the striking positions but dont do their day job and score.

We should be ok.  We look better organised and just need to keep the points ticking over.

if we’d got the draw that we deserved today then things would have looked much brighter.  I’m hoping for an undeserved win on Tuesday to balance things out.

also that team today was significantly depleted by injury.  If we can get a few back then we should have enough to see us through.

Disappointed to lose that one. We didn't create much but neither did the league leaders and it took a wonder goal to win the game. Guthrie missed a sitter but he put himself about well and won us some free kicks in dangerous areas. Rodney put in a lot of effort but needs to learn when to pass and when to shoot. 

 

One thing that can't help is the pitch. It looks horrific, one of the worst in the football league. It doesnt inspire great football to be played on it. Come on Speedy sort it out it is a joke.

He may be , we arent. His relegation concerns are valid.

we have been depleted by injuries all season. Busiest room at the Vale is the physio room. Even we get some back they dont last before getting injured again.

When it came to crunch time to here was only going to be one winner. Yes it was a fantastic strike but there was only one team going to score.

Get them in for training tomorrow give them the ball point to the net and tell them to <ovf censored> kick it at it.

Don't want all this <ovf censored> of worked hard, looked competitive etc etc I don't want to see Port Vale 0 particularly when playing at home! End of!

2 pts from 9.

2 more than Askey at the same stage! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Askey lost his first 5

Bit of a daft argument from you given the point you are trying to make.

No he didn't but go on i will play your game,you do know he was an Askey signing??

I actually thought Mills had one of his better games today

Agreed... Attacking Mills tonight is just unthought out and lazy.
