Match Thread: FLC R1 Port Vale v Sunderland


Recommended Posts

There doesn't seem to be a lot wrong. I couldn't go to the Sunderland game but clearly the goal disallowed should have been disallowed because the referee blew the whistle before the ball was kicked into the net. But his blowing the whistle for a foul on the keeper was totally wrong. If anything it should have been a penalty to Port Vale or play advantage and Vale score.

The stats show we had a high level of shots but need to get more on target. Could do without our keeper getting sent off. Need to defend dead balls better. Need to retain the ball better going forward in order to get player up the pitch; that usually means be less ambitious or at worse kick it in the corner and press. None of the frailties looks too serious. Whatever the formation.

Did anyone see the highlights of the Mackems game at the weekend against MK Dons?  They got another ridiculous penalty when their player did one of those moves where he trips himself with no opponent near him. Ref bought it. In this case they missed the pen though.
