Match Thread: Port Vale v Newport County

To be fair Conlon and Joyce chances were decent enough, Conlon just needed composure to score and is no harder than the chance they scored, in fact fairly similar, their lad scuffs it into the net, Conlon hits his too clean and it hits the defender in the way.

Joyce that one really irritated me because they’d gone to sleep, he had so much space place it far top corner but he drills it at the keeper! If he misses just top left of goal fair enough but to rifle it at the keeper with that much time. Probably wanted Conlon on that chance mind.

Oldham was poor finishing, Pope gets those chances first half its game over but Guthrie was weak in the header. We had chances, decent ones but didn’t test the keeper.

Point stands... to say we created nothing isn’t true.

Seriously what did we create? Shooting from outside the box from headed clearance isn’t us creating a chance. We created chances against Oldham, we didn’t create anything ourselves against Bolton. Joyce and Robinsons snap shots are not us creating chances.

People bang on about we should have hammered Oldham but we made the keeper work once and that was that

Vale never even made the Bolton keeper work.

You did however forget to mention all the penalties we won against both Oldham & Bolton 🤭

DC seems to realise we didn’t create anything against Bolton and lacked quality. His interview yesterday was great just hope we can get a win now.

I'm not saying we created lots... I have simply made the point that "We created nothing" is not true.

Conlon shot from Legge Throw

Worrall shot INSIDE the box in the last 15 mins

Joyce shot INSIDE the box in the last 15 mins... It wasn't a snap shot, he had time and took a strike.,... a good strike... no. But it was a chance.

Were they great chances... no, were they great efforts, no.

On another day could Conlons effort gone in... yes... therefore chance.

Would a more confident or better striker have scored with the Worral and Joyce efforts... maybe... therefore chance.

But everyone is so down (quite rightly) at the moment that we are looking at everything through a super negative lens. Its simply not true to say we created NOTHING. Because we did... Call them half chances if you want.... but creating nothing means we had no shots at all, Like Colchester did against Grimsby.

Again we've got the easiest fixture of the bottom sides.

Colchester - salford away

Barrow - cheltenham away

Grimsby - Tranmere away tomorrow

 

Then Saturday:

Vale colchester

southend scunthorpe

Barrow have crawley at home

 

We could be 10 points or more clear of southend by Ant and Dec's saturday night takeaway. Come on Vale

Colchester have won one of the last 18, and in that game against Carlisle they got hammered by shot after shot after shot, and scored a penalty.

I think we maybe just differ on the definition of a chance. For me us having a shot dosent meant it was a chance. It was just a shot. I really don’t think we created anything against Bolton. Maybe I dozed off in the game can’t remember the Worrall shot. Honestly. Imo as a team we didn’t create any openings or genuine opportunities to score. 
 

Hope we create a load of chances tonight and get the 3 points.

Grimsby's are at home to Tranmere

We didnt create anything against Bolton. Half hit shots that are blocked within a yard are not chances. Our forwards always seem to make the wrong choices in front of goal, whether its shooting when the better option is a square ball to a free man or taking it on when a first time shot is the better option. The forwards are totally devoid of confidence and getting that back is a hard task.

We havent created any clear cut chances in the past few games not carved anyone open. Player a striker through on goal nothing. Weve had a few half chances but nothing from good attacking play for ourselves.

Will be very interested to see the team selection. Not sure who we pick and what formation we play to score a goal.

Our uncertainty over the team/formation is probably enhanced due to our lack of information regarding injuries/fitness of various players, something the manager is reluctant to give us.

Also the uncertainty over what the manager is actually thinking as it appears to change match to match
