Match Thread: Port Vale v Oldham Athletic

the team looked much better and would look better again with Monty, Gibbo and Pope.

get and keep everyone fit and the goals will come.

Pope would be a massive boost and I can see him getting the goals to make us mathematically safe when he returns.

Guthrie had had a lot of criticism tonight in what is probably been his best game for us. I don't think he has played well but unlike previous games he has done the things he should be doing.

 

He has closed them down with intent unlike the casual trot towards them he usually does.

 

He has won more headers in the box tonight than he has done since he signed, albeit win the same powerpuff outcome.

 

He wouldn't be in my side but surely people know what to expect from him now. 

 

Dominated them so far but the longer we go without a goal the more worried I become. 

When Guthrie went off we were less effective.

Would still play Guthrie Saturday and until Pope if back.

We works hard and gets in the positions but never looks confident to score. His headers have no power and his shots dont seem to be hit cleanly

I predict 1-1 with a more inspiring performance, giving us something to build on come Saturday.

Well my prediction was pretty close. A clean sheet but we just can't get a goal at the minute. I'm sure we'll get there eventually though

Overall, Legge was really good tonight. For me, back to last seasons form.

Everything else has probably been said. 

Played well tonight.

Smells like the Notts County a couple of seasons ago.

Surely one goal and everything changes. Releases the pressure.

Come on! UTV

Fair's fair, Legge was a different player to the tired liability he's been earlier in the season. At one point in injury time he chased down and won a seemingly lost ball in the Oldham penalty area and kept it in play for a cross. A 35 year old centre half. Captain worthy effort.

Monty and Gibbons must be at least a month away, was only last Tuesday that both did hamstring. 

By that time we'll have about 5 games left !

Best performance under Clark. Mills much better, better shape all round, players looked like they knew what they were supposed to be doing, woz made big difference. But if we can't win games like that we r in trouble, with a decent striker we'd hav been 3 up at half time. Swanns finishing terrible but at least he tried. amoo and Robinson don't care-they were swaggering around laughing and shrugging after missing sitters-not vale players, get rid

There's people on here still who back him, and tell us that he's not so bad because he holds up the ball now and again...

He should be paying the club to play for us and not the other way round.

Robinson, Cullen, Rodney up front. Who looks better

Yes they have all scored a goal this season but actual play ?

Robinson and Cullen should never play again.

Until Pope is back Guthrie is the best of a poor poor bunch

You are almost contradicting yourself mate. 

You'd still play him despite his headers having no power and his shots not hit clearly ? 

I'm sorry dress it up however anybody wants to, working hard is a given, after all his deal is up soon .

He is absolutely tripe. The pathetic weak headers in the first half summed him up. Pope would of been close to carrying home the match ball given those chances. 

34 without a goal is an absolute embarrassing stat and Bradford actually paid money for him .

Rodney’s been dire for ages, but flown under the radar, I’d still play him as a striker we can’t hold the ball up anyway, so play with pace instead. The sooner Manny can prove match fitness, the sooner he can remove Joyce and get a few forward passes going

I really can not see where any goals are going to come from for the rest of the season, I can only say Clarke needs to figure out his best strikers and stick with them, not easy with the rubbish we have.

once Worral ans Amoo / Hurst are fit for a few games then our best two up top has to be

Guthrie and Rodney  -  until Pope can replace Guthrie.

Dont hol dtoo much hope for goals but its the best two up top for me.
