Match Thread: FLT G2 Port Vale v Rochdale

A good win and in any trophy a win keeps the confidence high and 6 wins in 7 and 5 on the spin is nothing to be sniffed at.

We got so many crosses in, had Proctor or Wilson played we'd have probably hit 4 or 5 but the experience lacking in our forward line often meant gambles on runs and positioning were not taken.

Johnson I thought did well tonight, best game in a Vale top, Politic looks to have real quality on the ball and works very hard for the team... will be difficult to keep him out the league side. Hurst I thought played well as did Taylor.

Impressive by Jones when he came on too, really got stuck into them and love Amos, his interviews are exactly what you want to hear from a player and seems genuine so hope he gets more chances and takes them, played well.

Benning I still am not sold on so far. Missed a tap in and just doesn't seem at the levels we expect, we know he clearly has the ability but be it confidence or form I hope he can up it.

I thought it was a steady performance from us, some players seemed to be going through the game with confidence and ease, in particular Taylor, Amoo and Gibbo. They looked like they could have hit another gear. I like politics nasty streak, looks like he doesn’t mind putting his foot in either. We got some great balls in to the box and with some better movement we could have had more efforts on target to capitalise on those crosses.

Yes, noticed last couple of games, in warm up and during game, that we are now pinging the ball into the danger penalty areas a lot more often.

Some very decent performances last night. Stands out for me where Jonson,Taylor and Politic.

Sooner or later I can’t see how we are going to keep Politic out of the 1st team and may need to change formation slightly to accommodate him.

I’m a little  concerned about Benning. I know he has quality, which he’s yet to show but his body language doesn’t look great.

Overall good reserve game.

We’ve only got one game left in this trophy, which is LFC U21 at home on 9/11. LFC supporters like most EPL supporters really struggle and some will never get tickets to see their team play. This due to expense and the different memberships that clubs operate. Hopefully this will bring out all the LFC supporters in Stoke on Trent,who can only dream of seeing their team play and could add a couple of hundred on the gate🤞.LFC supporters can get their ticket online or at PVFC cost £10, so a no brainier for me if I supported them and knew that this was my only chance to watch my team play. Possibly stars of the future, a bit like when we played MUFC in the League Cup, who sent their kids Beckham and co. 
I think the club should advertise this as not many LFC fans will know about it and it would boost our coffers.

99% of Liverpool fans have never seen their team live and never will.

That’s exactly the point that I’m making, so we need to promote the game. It’ll give them a chance to bellow out you’ll never walk alone.  👍

I think it speaks volumes for how much our Academy has changed since the new set up arrived when 17yr old Jones comes on and doesn't look out of place at all.... I am really excited about the future of OUR football club i truly am

Decent game last night. First half weather conditions reminded me of the Vale Sjoke FA Cup replay all those years ago, but fortunately the conditions improved after the first half. 

Lots and lots and lots of crosses into the box last night but no centre forward to capitalise. In the end, Rochdale did it for us! 

UTV!

They probably don’t know the words 

They probably won’t, but what’s saying that they won’t like what we’ve got and want to come back. So the adopted LFC fan, could become a PVFC fan for the future

Exactly……I live in Somerset and my local is busier when Liverpool play than England. They all have fathers, grandfathers who support Liverpool. Sure if they’d actually visited Liverpool and seen what the locals are like they wouldn’t be supporting them.

Completely agree, so many Liverpool supporters who live in our area, can easily get 200+ of their supporters through the gate if promoted well enough, any extra finances will go down well and might not seem much but always helpful.
