Match Thread: Port Vale v Bradford City


Breadwinner

Recommended Posts

Attendance?

Hearing mixed signals, some saying too early / on telly, others bringing friends along with an international break happening, weather looks set to be fine. Bradford not travelling in numbers, 2 goal win and we go top. !  Will it be below our normal 5.6k or will we go higher?  Thoughts.....

I'm hearing that Carol and Kevin the team the coaching staff and all the every supporter who as not missed a single game be that home and away deserve a good turnout on sat. What i mean by that is that there must be a good few thousand more Vale fans in the city and folk or family so I'd like see at least a crowd of 7000 with away fans and casual supporters in hopefully if not so be it whoever goes we appreciate it .
I'd love there be more but it is what it' is
I said before a ball was kicked this season it's down to the players to create support get people in them seats and in my opinion they couldn't do any more they are playing some breathtaking football and in general are scoring some fantastic goals and apart from D Jones and L Legge everyone has scored a goal ,the whole team is getting better by the game improving all the time players who were part of the non performing Vale from last year under Askey Pugh etc till end of season run have all improved significantly we have scored 13 home goals in last 3 what more do folk want .
Get thesen down to the Vale and give them your coin (not you obviously as your Vale and go everywhere with them )but you know folk who love football and when you get there your job is to encourage nowt else(not abuse Theo Robinson or anyone else as that will make them play better ,encourage the lads in Black and White )UTV

I suppose being a long suffering Vale fan and let down so often you can’t get ahead of yourself. But how this team and squad are performing you can’t help but be positive and optimistic I hope we can get a good crowd and perform at our best with all players at 7/10 or higher if that happens we could all be very happy bunnies Saturday afternoon.

Being on Sky, in a game we should win, in front of a big crowd. What can possibly go wrong?

Almost a guaranteed 0-2 loss unless we really have changed as a club. We've seen this story many times before.

Perfect confluence of:

  • Our outrageous form not lasting forever
  • Bradford's underwhelming form not lasting forever
  • Theo Robinson in form after Clarke demoted him to the U18s
  • Telly - international break so a larger than normal audience. Good stories on Wilson and Covolan so we'll get a lot of attention
  • Win to go top
  • Big attendance

Crazy that we're that conditioned into expecting misery and disappointment that, despite winning 19 of 28, scoring 17 in 4, winning our last 7 at home, most people on here have grim resignation for Saturday. Proper order that. Vale Vale.

Vale fans have been here so many times before and been left with the kick in the guts as Vale sides over many years manage to mess up glorious opportunities. 
 

we want to believe it cant happen again and this is a new beginning of optimism and belief- we really do - but….🤞

I fear this game will be magnified in the post-match, win or lose.

Its just another game and, all the noise around it aside (telly, attendance, go top), it's 3 points out of 138. It's 2% of the season. 

It'll be a fantastic occasion but I beg we don't get any of that last-match analysis overreaction we got after Sutton. Bradford are a good side with a manager who delivers at this level. We might lose. We might not play well. If we do, it doesn't mean much, especially in the context of 7 home wins in a row, 17 goals in 4, 19 wins in 28 etc etc.

Then again, if we score 3-4 again, I'll be booking the bus parade and lumping on title. Into these.

It’s not a defining game in terms of the season! However a defining game in terms where we are and can we perform when the pressures on. I hope we can I would love us to do these good and proper. Still being a Vale fan expect the unexpected.
