Match Thread: Port Vale v Bradford City

On reading the posts on here I’m assuming we took a right leathering, it’s a draw against Bradford, did you honestly think we would win every game, give your heads a wobble. Personally I thought it was a good game between two good sides and a draw was probably a fair result.

Did we lose, and heavily at that, today? I thought we drew

The problem is now that winning breeds confidence in fans as well which leads to ott reactions sometimes

There was a guy behind me moaning all game mainly about DC saying manager of the month my arse.... unbelievable when you think we had won 10 in 12 and even now its one defeat in 13 isn't it?

Today was the worst i had seen us for a while but even playing like that we got a point(play <ovf censored> then make sure you get at least a point and we did) but lets not forget these players and DC have got us to 2nd in the table by playing some fantastic stuff....games like today will happen but we didn't lose and thats the main thing

Onwards and Upwards and bring on Oldham now

Radio Stoke announced that Scott Burgess is being re-registered as a player

I might be the only one but i actually never thought he was one of the worst players,i actually thought he was better than Taylor last season and he is young enough to improve,so i dont mind this(i still cant see him getting into to many match day squads unless we have players carrying knocks who are playing at the moment)

I’m not sure he is. He barely looked a footballer at times today. 
 

There is a reason he’s only played that amount of time and the sending off was his own fault. He should be trying to make and impact like politic to make Clarke start him. Not be completely disinterested from the word go. Clarke got the sub wrong, but that Dosent mean the player can’t put some effort in 

You’re right, the sending off was his fault. The other reasons are due to a reoccurring heel injury and the birth of his child, otherwise I’m sure he’d be back in contention after his suspension.

I just feel some of the criticism is uncalled. He’s being absolutely slated on Facebook.

Legge for Smith is an easy call to make for the next game. Would also take out Garrity. He's done well so far, better than expected, but still looks like a bit of a work in progress for me at times.
Garrity never stops running yes the lad made a couple of poor passes today but he is always competing for every ball and he maybe should have scored with that header from a cross early second half and I think he was still on the pitch when we scored when he and Amoo who was stretching there defence all afternoon went off we didn't do that well after apart from Conlon putting Lloyd in Garrity and Amoo never gave them a moments peace Clarkes substitutions helped Bradford not Vale why not bring Legge Politic and another on .
Jake Taylor didn't get involved in the game today we were average at best shame really but the crowd needs be more wired than what they are we need 6000 people to get behind the team not 100 to 200 .
Early kick off didn't help all the credit today goes to Bradford .
Let's hope the fans who rarely go are not too disheartened by that display today .
AS DC says we have work to do .

Some of the stick Rodney is receiving is slightly bewildering, in my opinion.

Yeah, the lad wasn’t great but he was thrown on today after playing a total of 104 minutes since the Swindon sending off. Some of the blame must go to Clarke, he should have possibly brought on Politic. 

For all the people saying he looks uninterested and is lazy, I genuinely believe that’s his style of play. 

Get behind the lad because, as we all know, he’s an asset for the Vale and a talent. 

I just don’t understand why Rodney was preferred to Politic? Rodney has barely played and been injured and Politic has shown he’s clearly better than Lloyd and Rodney.

I totally agree, mate. I was a bit surprised myself considering how well Politic has been playing.

Not read the whole thread, but we were up against a decent team today who gave us a stiff test.

Some of the play was outstanding, some average, some poor.

We came through intact, could have won, might have lost.

A good reminder that we will always be a work in progress.

No matter how good we get.
