Mills is awful, I've made my disdain for him quite clear.

But however bad he is I'm struggling with the logic of not having him on the bench. 

Gibbons wasn't playing against Cambridge as wrapped in cotton wool. Yet tonight when he does play his replacement isn't in the squad ( maybe he had a knock ? ) 

Like I said Mills is terrible but I'm just trying to see the logic of Clarke tonight

I totally agree. I think Clarke wishes he had Mills on the bench tonight.

With Gibbo going off and to bring Mills on, it’s a straight ‘almost’ like for like. But what else it does, is keep Smith, Legge and Crookes in the middle of defence, which has been solid. Brisley came on off the pace.

I reckon with Mills on we would have got a point. (Also, thought Mills played ok against Cambridge, so surprised he wasn’t on the bench)

Don’t want to comment on the the other aspects of the game as I don’t really know where to start. Need a bit of time.

Most of these players are getting away with murder. If there was a crowd in every week by now they would be getting dogs abuse which quite  frankly they deserve, but as things are they just waltz off

I’m afraid Clarke hasn’t shown anything that makes me think he can get us out of this mess however much he talks

After selecting Robinson and Whitehead I don't want to hear any more excuses or Clarke putting the blame on someone else.

To be honest for 40 mins we were ok Smith's put one wide when if he had any composure he could have put it in Hurst has put one on a plate for Conlon his shot stopped by a hand that's a penalty and a sending off but no ref bottled it and waved play on .

Then we lost GIbbins who was doing ok then Rodney's in on the right side of there box instead of Vale potentially one up the goalie releases it quickly a few passes later a cross comes in which should never have being allowed to and Henderson has the freedom of Salford head it in ,poor goal give away against a team who had a bit of quality but not lots ,then wehave given them a undeserved leg up and spend the rest of  the game trying but showing no quality whatsoever and Rodney once again in second half dominated and no where be seen .

Sad times for the Vale faithful luckily there are 3 worse teams than us ,count your blessing they all lost .

Whether that will be after last 14 games we will see .

Effort and commitment will not win games goals do and once again we have come up short again in that department so I suggest all forwards spend three extra hr each day working on there finishing .

Conlons balls in are atrocious try someone else on set pieces .

Positives if they are 4th there is hope for us yet  

Negatives quality of final ball ,miss controlling of ball and yet again a breakaway goal brought on by our own docileness

Oh well, Carol's money. Just hope Flitcroft can get a decent squad of players together in the summer. Ain't loving his choice of manager so far I have to say.

Not filling me with confidence either.

Where and what is the problem with manny ??? Any explanation for his absence????

I've found our Comms with injuries poor all season not just Manny. 

Amoo for example how long is he out for ?

Worrall apparently was having a scan , again no news

I'm not sure about the new regime. All I get from Clarke is pre-made excuses for relegation blaming the previous set-up: 'this squad is set up for a 4-4-3' 'can't believe there's only one defensive midfielder in the squad' 'this squad is not fit' tonight we were awful, even the good players looked bad. I personally think askey was on the right track for a rebuild, but you can't lose 6 in a row. We were getting comfortable with the system and the ethos. Clarke is changing personnel and insisting on a 5-3-2 which our lads don't seem to buy into. Carol has probably spent a fortune on new manager and DoF, and she admits she knows nothing about football. Clarke and flittcroft do know about football, but do they know about Port Vale Football Club? I for one won't warm to people who spend time slagging off the previous encombants rather than getting results

The ref wasn't great but even with VAR that is never a penalty. The player turned his back with his arm behind him and it him and was struck from 3 yards away.What is he supposed to do?

To me the logic is - if the squad is set up for 433 then play 433

11 starts in our last 69 games. We can’t afford to keep him sadly.

I want him give Vale a penalty and send there player off it was going in in my opinion .

They had one in the second half but that was going nowhere ,I'm byest to Vale very disappointed in them again the goal we conceded was a joke of a goal a goal we have being giving away all season ,they didnt do anything warrant that goal so how come he has got a free header in our box and why was the cross allowed in .

Piss poor in my opinion, have noticed that the other teams never give us a soft goal beat ourselves as usual .

Please do not tell me Rodney is a 90 minute footballer that's three games in a row second half zero impact
