Match Thread: Northampton Town v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

We were very very poor today can’t fault the effort but sadly a lack of quality through out the side created one chance all game and somehow Wilson managed to put it wide but that was it never leave a game early unless 3 nil down but came away today after 80 mins as I new we wouldn’t score if we played till 10 o’clock

With 10 men for most of the game… is that really concern?


with 10 men for less than half of the game its a concern, as we didn't create that much even before he messed up

Watched on ifollow.

Critisism of the keeper is harsh. He messed up but if you want the keeper to come out they are going to make a mistake occasionally. If it happens frequently then its a different story.The ball checked and his first touch was poor. Their lad made a great tackle then dived. 9 times out of 10 when you have a keeper cock up in that situation the worst case is a throw.

We were ok for the first 10 minutes then they stopped Conlon getting on the ball and we didn't have an answer.

We are not going to be very exciting to watch this season. We may do well but it its going to be dull. Those of you who have been asking for teams that win ugly should be careful what you wish for.

Its always going to be difficult when you go down to a team like that. It was a goal that happens every so often. Again if you start to concede similar goals frequently that is when it becomes a problem.

We desperately need more mobility.

Playing Worrall as a wing-back is criminal. It's like City starting De Bruyne there. I'm sure he can do a job, but your just wasting one of your better players to an extent.


Been saying it all pre season. I get gibbo is injured. We’ve signed cass, play either him or smith there and let Worrall stay up top where he hurts teams at this level.
