Match Thread: Port Vale v Rochdale

From the sublime to the ridiculous. The game should have been over after the first 20 minutes but we were as profligate as ever. Then, after we let them in with some poor defensive play, our heads went down and it was chaotic as they took control of the game. Need to stiffen the midfield second half as the defence is constantly having to face players running at them, especially down our left where Newby is having a field day. 

Time to turn this round but it will need a lot more discipline and invention. We need a goal and it would be good to see Amoo and Rodney on second half. C'mon Vale!

Weird half that was. From looking absolutely amazing in the first 20, we've dropped to the edge of our box for the last 20. Need some momentum from somewhere. They're targeting our left and really exposing Benning. I'd pull him at HT, bring on Cass, and go 433

As a spectacle very entertaining but definitely a half of two halves. We really should have been out of sight before they scored, but they’ve bossed it since. We look too static in midfield at times compared to them, preferring longer passing whereas they pass and go for the return to open up space. I’d been inclined to swap Benning and possibly Garrity and bring on Cass and Amoo switching to 4-4-2.

First 10 minutes and we battered them, should gave been two or three up easily. Then we just stopped playing and stood off them went from a 10/10 performance to 3/10. Not sure what to change except getting them to get stuck in and make a tackle, maybe Politic for Benning.

Rodney and possibly Politic not out with the other subs warming up. Two positive changes coming?

Wrong, it's Cass the other one who looks to be coming on, still getting used to the new squad!
