We could have 90 shots on goal and they could be down to 8 men and Alan Buckley would trip over his laces and head the ball into the goal from 30 yards and we’d lose 1-0 .......may have something to d

I did mate, I also described Bolton as horrific.  What I'm saying is since we beat Southend we have 2 points and they have 7 albeit from one more game. You only have to look at Fulham. Newca

Grimsby still have to play Tranmere, Salford, Cheltenham, Bradford, Bolton, Exeter and Cambridge AND still have to make 10 points up on us Barrow still have to play Cheltenham, Newport, Exeter tw

My own opinion, and not wishing to sound condescending at all, is that Vale will stay up.
In our favour is a reasonable goal difference which I'm hoping won't get much worse as I believe the defence is going to be pretty solid for the remainder of the season. Add to that we have good players hopefully returning to the team in the not too distant future.
We are due an upturn in results at some point and 2 back-to-back wins would go a long way to alleviating our precarious position.
Don't get me wrong, we are in a dogfight but I firmly believe we have enough games to alter our position. If we only win 1 out of 3 games from now til May that should be enough, especially if the wins are against teams around and below us.
Not so easy ?, where are our wins/goals coming from ?. Well in my view Darrell is catching on to who he wants to play where and how. He's still finding out about players and how they can adapt to certain formations but I think by next Saturday he will have a handle on the team.
It may be dour, it may be scrappy but hopefully it will be enough, then the real work can begin.
UTV.

Looking like another loss for us tonight. With the exception of Stevenage all our rivals are losing.

Am getting very worried now cannot see where another win is going to come from, our team is top heavy with sick notes and squad members who just make the numbers up.

We will be safe by then have faith roll on next season when we are back in the ground.

Just watched the highlights from various games on Tuesday. Grimsby look gone, not only are they adrift at the bottom but they looked crap, no real chances and wide open at the back. I can't see them getting many more points.

However, my worry is that Southend have picked up dramatically and Barrow looked sharp in their game against Harrogate. They lost 1-0 but had plenty of chances and could have got something. Neither of those two have given up yet and could very easily catch us unless we turn it around. Only one of them needs to for us to be in trouble.

When Clarke was relegated with Bristol Rovers they only dropped into the final relegation place on the last day of the season, they'd not been in it until then. Fingers crossed hisory doesn't repeat itself.

Scarily, look at who Bristol Rovers played on the last day of that season and look who we’re playing on the last game of this season. Hope it’s not an omen.

Concerned now Barrow and Southend are picking points up. Tuesday is a massive game now we need a win desperately, this will give us much needed confidence.

Got to say listened to Carl on P n G and he spoke a lot of sense.

Well it's going to be another nervous week

Grimsby play freefalling Carlisle and then Colchester

Barrow play freefalling Walsall 

We somehow have to spawn a win

Southend have picked up dramatically ever since we stuffed them.

Personally I like nearly everyone on here thought Askey had done great business spending the majority of his budget on keeping the squad together.

However, I am not joining in the chorus confirming Askey and saying we are full of deadwood. What we have is a huge injury list, currently 6 nailed on first eleven starters.

The number of hamstring pulls at the Vale cannot be coincidence. That needs investigating because those 6 players haven't a history at other clubs of being injury prone.

Still 4th favourite , I'm not as convinced those odds are a reflection

 

 

I think Grimsby have gone and it's between us, Southend and Barrow for that last spot.  I look at our fixtures and I genuinely worry where our wins are going to come from, there is a massive lack of creativity from midfield, what has happened to Conlon in the last month.   I always thought Worrall was slightly overrated, I am wrong, his loss to us is massive, we have nothing out wide without him. 

Tuesday for me is our most important game since we beat Chesterfield a couple of years ago, yes it is not must win but not far off.
