Match Thread: Port Vale v Bradford City

Recommended Posts

In football you tend to know, all things being equal, when you're due a defeat, when a decent run of results has maybe overstayed its welcome and it's time for it to go home.

The mark of a promotion team is to go maybe two or three games further. Bad results will inevitably come around but if you can squeeze a bit more out of a good run then it's never a bad sign.

There were a few times in 2012/13 when we were flying at the start of the season and I thought we were due a bad result, that Saturday/Tuesday double header away at Plymouth & Fleetwood away being one of them.

A lot of people myself included are quite nervy about today. 

Lots of factors contributing to that. However in the cold light of day yes these are a big fish but they currently sit 12th. Maybe underachieving who knows, but on another site I use where lots of league 2 fans frequent there is a sense of anger and disgruntlement amongst the Bradford fans. 

Nothing to fear here , let's get at them early doors and get top of the league this afternoon.

Really looking forward to today's game.

I love it that we're now worrying about being on too good a run 😃 

Far preferable to worrying about staying in the league or ever winning again.

I’m worried about today but at the end of the day if we lose we lose. It’s no more important than any other game. It’s still 3 points at stake the same as next week. These will be a decent side i think, especially if they have players back from injury. 

Who won't be match fit...

How many more people are having a feeling we going lose ,this is a vibrant Vale for the record I think they will win 3-0 Garrity Wilson and Legge the scorers and I will be shouting from the rooftops to encourage them to do so from the minute I get in the game to the minute I get out the ground .
Sky being there has over hyped it somewhat ,disappointed that not one end of our ground sold out it deserves be in fact I think the owners deserves 10 k rack up tomorrow .
Oh well strange footballing area
