Hi all, Can I please make a couple of comments: 1. Please KEEP ON TOPIC. This is about a football match. I am now going to plough through and remove all posts not to do with the game (happy

Missing today, Gibbons, Worrall, Oyeleke, Amoo, Joyce and Pope. All of this would be in most fans first 11 when fit. None played today. We didn’t deserve to lose that and probably wouldn’t have done w

Nice to see you are starting early Should we play poorly or lose then no doubt we will hear a lot from you today again..... play well or win we will see you Tuesday. For goodness sake Askey

Bristol Rovers, 2015, under Darrell Clarke were the last one to do it.

Cheltenham did it possibly the year after if I recall. (May have even been the same year)

If we did go down we’d be in a good financial position compared to most clubs down there especially off the field but on the flip side Wrexham with their Hollywood project would be tough to stop and some big clubs down there, Chesterfield, Stockport, Notts County... wouldn’t be easy.

Salford drew with Southend today so hopefully Clarke can get the heads up again and we get something on Tuesday.

Hopefully we can get a few off the injury table which I think DC dropped a hint of in his interview ... it will be another tough game that’s for sure!

So vale v Cambridge....

Demonstration that DC is slowly improving the squad. 

Cambridge didn’t look like a top of the table team today and I think that is down to our structure and professional performance at the back.

We need to quickly learn how to attach some serious attacking intent to that defensive foundation.

Huge summer coming up!

I also thought the pitch was pretty rubbish!

Agree, much improved. At least the players are playing for him. I thought out attacking play was much better, just have to stick the ball in the net when that big chance comes which we didn’t. Had a feeling we would lose after that miss. Pitch looked great until they started playing on it, not the best. 

Agree RE Cambridge, most sides do seem quite similar in this division, the overall standard has been very low this season. Hoolahan stood out though  

Can’t wait to see the turn around in players in the summer just hope we are in this league and not the league below.

No idea what has happened to them, thought they’d struggle at the start of the season as they lost key players, but seemed to start well. A big plus for , I can’t see Colchester picking up as many points as us based off today

It was a knee jerk reaction but since studying everything, a little doubt has crept in about definitely losing to Salford. As it's such a good cause I'll take you up on it. We Are Going To Lose The Next 3!!! emoji6.png

Like you say, a good cause, and a little side bet adds a bit of spice.

Feels like they have marginally easier fixtures than us but they have 3 very tough games to finish the season Cheltenham, Salford and Tranmere.

Put game against them is very important indeed!

Ok back to the game ,we do not seem to have the desire get the ball in the back of the oppositions net .

When that chance comes along for Kurtis he as to take it or at least pass it so  Rodney has a tap in ,so frustrating especially the first 25 mins both forwards were contributing after that I beg to differ ,you gotta do more if you want score that's for sure ,so disheartening to see that goal fly in after the defence in general were pretty good especially Legge who was 8 out of 10 alongside Smith who was also a good 8 also .

In fact I'm pointing the fingers at the lack of desire in the forward players ,you will never score if you do not play with a belief you can .

No doubt about it Cambridge deserved win as around the 65th  min we began to get ragged in midfield and there extra fitness began to tell by the looks of it I found that quite annoying because for 20 mins second half at least we were passing it to one another ,I thought we were going get the lead ,but no one really wanted or busted a gut to get the ball in the Cambridge net at any point it was all a bit half hearted and lame ,yet they wanted get it in ours and if it wasnt for a couple of fine saves from Brown and blocks  in the six yard box from Smith Mills and Crookes the defeat may have being hell of a lot worse .

As for us I'm trying think did we make there goalie work ,Guthrie should have scored and that's it 89 mins of nothing and do not get me started on that free kick early game from Conlon ,choose someone in future who will whack the ball it might hit a opposition player and fly in .

It was pathetic. 

MY Mark's 

BROWN 7 

MILLS 7

Smith 8 

LEGGE 8 man of match ,overworked though but he did everything all game in my opinion to give us a clean sheet maybe play him up front as we need goals .

Crookes 7 

Taylor 5 faded badly as game went on and when you are passed the ball in the opposition penalty area make sure you do not lose it ,ok for a hr 

Conlon 6 better than the last 2 games but creatively creating naff all ,porthill pirlo I do not think so ,worked hard mind you that's a given well should be as a pro footballer though I'm sure it was him who was wrong side of man for there goal .

Burgess 6 created nothing but I cannot remember our right side letting us down in this game ,most of the opportunities were being created from the left as Taylor And Hurst were not winning the ball unfortunately. 

Montano 5 went off injured while on did ok nothing more .

Guthrie 4 best chance of game fluffed it and after that his head probably went down ,well let's just say he was not any good after he missed that big moment up until then he along  with Rodney started the game well but the game lasts for 90 not 20 .

Rodney 4 first 20 ok last until he was replaced ominous .

Not impressed at all with him ,we need everyone at it wheres the explosive pace gone wheres the desire get the ball in the net  

Subs Hurst 5 going forwards does some decent things defensively not so easily beaten .

The other 2 subs worked hard but that Robinson rash shot was just ridiculous .

Darrell Clark ,defensively 2 goals conceded in 3 games which is ok  ,going forwards about 5 on target in them 3 games,1 goal  it isn't good enough work on clever free kicks ,getting shots away and choose a two up front which does not include Rodney or Guthrie and not leave players on who's legs are gone in fact maybe just play Swann up front and have extra legs in midfield

7 for Mills is good to see... I thought he had one of his better games for us today! 

Not convinced we should keep him mind!

They didn't though did they.  They systematically attacked me personally.
I have reported every single post.  Zero action taken.  OVF endorses bullying.


It really doesn’t and YOU know it doesn’t. Admin probably haven’t seen this thread or your complaint at this point. This is a forum for differing opinions. The folks on here tonight IMO have referred to your staunch support of Askey and have disagreed with it. Have they portrayed their opinions ‘ nicely’ I’m not sure, but I’m sure they have been very aware of your vociferous opinions towards other posters in the past, and felt that you could cope with their argument accordingly. As I’ve said before, my advice would be to step away, until such time that Admin read and close this thread.

So in a situation where somebody feels bullied your advice is to leave.
Thanks but no thanks  that just give those who bully what they crave.
As for my support of Askey, why does that mean I should be branded as pathetic by some and harassed by IC?  I have also shown support of the new manager as I did Pugh.
I have been called a scumbag.  Show me where I have done that?
Again its noticeable who likes your posts.


Leave?? .... self preservation. Only I am responding to your posts now, so I’ll walk away.
