Match Thread: Port Vale v Bolton Wanderers

I think you can recognise that Clarke's been dealt a bad hand but also accept he's performing poorly in his role at present. Giving minutes to complete frauds and seems to have overseen a regression in attack.

It's not enough to form a conclusive judgement but it's not good.

Like I said the other week, we have been crying out for non league for too many years now. We are getting what we deserve, end of.

It might sound cruel or harsh but we have been consistently rubbish for years (bar the odd season) and we have been a shambles off the pitch for too many years. Everything is now creeping up with us and we will get what we have deserved.

 

Things might have improved off the pitch but on the pitch they are worse than ever this has to be the worse team we have ever had

Bit harsh. Back in November people were talking about how the club have to try and hold off any six figure offers for him in January, talk of getting millions for him in the future.

I thought they were on cloud cuckoo land personally but he did show raw ability at the start of the season

Hes <ovf censored> garbage

In difficult conditions with a very poor pitch and high wind we have played reasonably well. The only defensive error led to a fluke goal by Bolton. But we don't look like scoring. Because we are defensive orientated we have a long way to go when we get possession and we struggle to get numbers in the box. Put its not effective to keep swinging and hitting really poor shots from long distance. The fact we are solid means we can win games 1-0 ourselves and we have to hope we can do that against Newport. I felt Bolton today showed they will possibly win the league. They are big and strong and could play on our pitch. They lacked quality with crosses, but wind is playing a factor. We have been competitive the last two home games and its far from hopeless. But its squeaky bum time now where we need to win. There are decisive games coming up with Colchester away.

The Colchester and Barrow games are the ones that will save us or send us down. All the positivity from Thursdays meeting and we witness that. I will save the negativity but as the saying goes "You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time"

 

So sad, bitterly disappointing, cruel to have to witness this at home.

Battled well in centre midfield but like most of the season our decision making in the final 3rd is awful. I would like to see us move to 433 and leave Rodney up high rather than making him track back like we did under Micky with Ashely Vincent.

We're not allowed to play 4-3-3

In my prediction spreadsheet, where I have us staying up on goal difference, I had us losing and Southend winning.

So for me, bizarrely ... we just made 2 points up on them.

I had Grimsby to win too.

Do we stay up?  If so where did you think we would pick up points

Im not sure what our options are for left back on Tuesday, but we need Amoo, Oyeleke and Guthrie starting (unless Pope is back)

Injuries have been horrific this season and highlight the lack of quality in depth.

Might have to go Mills at left back and Smith at right back 🤮

Dreadful game of football ,lookedto me like we were playing for a 0-0 and lost to a team who didnt deserve win .

Going down unfortunately there was no blood and thunder about the display ,half hearted to me ,Rodney Worrall Robinson all ominous .

There was nothing to get excited very poor that effort is all well and good but lack guts get the ball in the net and that will see us in the national league unfortunately .

Always love the Vale but fearing the worst now .

That display today just wasn't good enough at all

Following Thursday, the last thing I expected was a display so lethargic, I expected blood and thunder at the very least. I fell asleep in all honessty and missed the goal.

This hurts and it's worse that we can't vent our feelings.

This display was as abject as any we have witnessed since the end of October

Well I can see far more than that. In particular, I thought the team worked really hard today. Two players picked up injries because they worked really hard.
