That was a strange game. If playing with Wilson was like playing with 10, as someone has claimed, then playing with Rodney was like playing with 9. Atrocious performance by him. If he carries on playing like that, even I'll be calling for Pope to come back

Flat back 4 for me, nobody knows whether their attacking or defending down the sides and seem confused. Cass and Jones RB LB but with their priority being getting back in a solid back line as a single unit when we haven’t got the ball. Ironically we defend better in a less defensive formation because everyone has a simple role and follows it. When there’s two players near the ball both seem to hang back like they’re unsure. Need Legge / Legge-style CB but it’s one game and we smacked FGR and should have got more so hey ho.

What are we going to do about all of this?

Trust the process. We're 6 games in.

If we get to 46 games and we're still 17th then perhaps we change the process. But for now we've got to have faith in the management and the players because we can't sign any new players (barring free agents) until January.

Never seen a team drained of all their confidence and composure on the ball so quickly. 

That's what's getting me. We pummelled them, and then the moment we conceded it's like we instantly became a completely different team. If we're going to be so up and down as a team because of our confidence this season then we're not going to get anywhere fast.

We lost that game today more than they won it. That's not to say they aren't decent - They look a side more than capable of the play-offs. But I doubt we'll play as bad collectively as a side again all season. 8 or 9 players had an off day.

Only Conlon and Proctor looked brave on the ball today. We were similar against Carlisle as well, the longer that game went on the worse we got.

It seems like every game we do that thing where the ball gets played inside the full back, Worrall spins outside, misses a great chance, then it’s downhill from there.

Looks like Amos will get his chance quite soon.

and Politic

and Cass

and Walker will be back

All about opinions.

I thought Cass was terrible. Headless chicken. An awful cross when brilliantly placed and a few terrible passes.

The double substitution was rather baffling . Proctor won every single flick on in the second half and Rodney reacted to none of them. 

A very disappointing day, threw all last week's good work down the drain.

As for the clowns on Radio Stoke. The first caller Gareth sounded like he was in his living room with a toddler, I don't think he even went to the game. 

Still early yet and I'll hope this is a blip but nonetheless a poor performance after such a superb start .

Disappointing result, too many mistakes and sloppy defending by Vale. One win last week vs FGR doesn't make the season.

The recruitment this season hasn't been as good as some on OVF think, Legge, Smith are still Vale's best defenders and Worrall, Conlon Vale's best midfield players.
