Match Thread: Harrogate v Port Vale

Recommended Posts

A day of firsts, Vale`s first league visit to Harrogate, first league goal there, first league win there, officiated by Rebecca Welch first female referee selected for an English Football League game. Harrogate 15th 4 games without a win, Vale 16th four wins on the trot, 2 points apart.  Let us make it 5 wins Vale, leap above them, on the way to an impossible dream. Pity SVA are not there to tell it to Yorkshire.

Well Betty's tea room can wait until next season. By all accounts Walsall should of beaten them comfortably yesterday.

The form and belief we have found gives me great confidence of another win. 

0-2 to the mighty Vale

When was the last time we won 5 on the bounce please?

5 straight clean sheet wins in September 2010, Micky got Manager Of The Month.

The run ended when you got that flat tyre on the way to Oxford.

Is that about the time we battered Chesterfield 5-0? That run sounds familiar.

No, it was the start of the following season. The 5-0 at Chesterfield was March-ish when we almost made the play-offs.

Fairly sure we haven't won 5 on the spin since. I remember we won 6 in a row not long after the Everton and Leeds cup run in 1996. The Bogie 12 second goal was part of that run I think.

I'm definitely getting old. 

When you said that we battered Chesterfield 5-0  I immediately thought of this game, which was following up on an excellent 6-1 defeat of Chester.  I remember watching both of those from the Bycars.

Could this be another win for DC and the gang making it 5 in a row?  Feel like it could be a yes the way they are playing now.

Looking forward to the game now.  Just getting used to that feeling again.

When we are confident of a win we have always disappointed and played poorly. I am hopeful that these traits are slowly being put to bed. If we continue to play like the last few games then with a little more composure we could really give someone a spanking. I would just be happy with a result but a win would be the icing on the cake.

Definitely can’t take anything for granted. They are a nasty Newport type. Kick the ankles and if you get the ball as well happy days. It’s going to be a tough physical test so Clarkey will no doubt be thinking carefully about who to rotate (not allowed to ask though). Let’s not lose Manny to some hack job hoof ballers for <ovf censored> sake.

Another game look forwards too .

They have had a fantastic season and I believe are a good side and 2 points above us so I am expecting a battle but having seen how we are playing at present and how much more of a all together good side I mean I have just being watching Leicester v Man City what a bore fest ,give me Vale any day if the week especially this Vale from last four games where 4 wins have all being deserved in my opinion as we have fought for every ball and showed so much quality at times .

However there was at least four different situations yesterday where if we passed it to the free player theres a goal incoming so I'd like us to be more clinical .

Team well who do you change in a word no one .

Bring  it

It was Cardiff that we beat 6-1 (on the Saturday) and then Chesterfield 5-0, as in that footage, on the Monday night.
