Match Thread: Port Vale v Rochdale

After the first 15 minutes or so this has been absolutely depressing stuff. Through poor mistakes and sloppy play again and again we've made Rochdale look much better than they are.

Totally disagree. You can’t say that Legge would have been everywhere today to prevent everything. Those players on the pitch have enough experience between them to do better, Smith, Martin and benning especially. If Legge was on the Beasley would probably have played on one of the other centre halves anyway. Legge can’t prevent what Benning didn’t do for the third goal, you can’t legislate for cass coming and having a shocker. 

No, of course he wouldn't but what he brings is stability to the back line and total dominance in the air, where we were completely undone today. Every cross was a nightmare and Martin was given the run around by Beesley. Not only that but the other defenders seem to play with more confidence either side of Legge. And Beesley didn't even have to think about playing on one of the other centre halves because he had Martin in his pocket.

Individual errors/bad choices and Rochdale wanting the ball more and their players double tagging Conlon when he had the ball.

Some weird decisions by the ref as well.

Oh well - rock on the next game and see what they do.

Fans will be questioning Benning's ability after this game.  He seemed to be off form today big style.  Did the big crowd and emotional memorial affect some of the players - making them try to hard or just put them off ???

A frustrating and horrible game. From the sublime to the ridiculous. We looked very disjointed today with too many players having an 'off' day.
Conceded 6 in 2. That's abysmal. The defending for their 3rd was just ludicrous.
Come on Vale we are better than that. Sort it out.

Really disappointed with our defence today. Not having that as that was just really sloppy.

Jamie Proctor did all he could do and was well worth the MOTM and not just for his goals but his all round play. Did Rodney contribute a single thing though when he came on? That needs to improve from him.

What an odd game. First 10/15 mins were as good as I’ve seen down vale for some time and we could have been 3/4 up! No idea what happened after that. We defended horribly as a unit and individually. They looked a decent side I thought but played through us far too easily. 

Take your chances and that’s irrelevant though, we have to kill sides off when we are so dominant. 

If proctor stays fit he’s going to get 20+. Wilson and Rodney really have to be careful. Wilson missed a massive chance and for me wasn’t really in the game, again. And Rodney, I know he’s inconsistent, but he’s been really off this season and was dire today. Strange, disappointing game which 10 mins into the game I thought we were going to win at a canter. 

In my opinion we have the players. There’s still some areas I worry about but there is enough on that bench today to get us out of trouble. 
 

Change it next match and get politic and or amoo on. Wilson out of the side and maybe today we say why Walker has to play in Cm? 
 

Still think we will be up there come the end of the season.
