Martin, I haven't felt comfortable with all season. Isn't that great on heading, passing and doesn't have any pace.

 

He's <ovf censored>. Send him back to the farmer league in Scotland.

Embarrassing.

Smith back will make a big difference.

Politic from the start and Proctor asap. 

It would happen just before arguably the biggest game of the season.

Beat Walsall and all is forgotten.

It's the type of defeat that can completely knock a team off the rails. Let's see how we do in a few days time. Win and this can soon be forgotten to an extent. Drop points and suddenly it's typical Port Vale territory all over again...

With Wilson (or Proctor) out there today we win this game, 100%.

Why? Is he good at defending free kicks?

Sorry, but this happens when you support Vale for a long time.  We do this during the season, a team we should beat and beat so easily we become our own worst enemies and gift them goals.

Just hope this is not the slide down the league some of the longer supporting fans have seen happen. 

Not sure why Rodney was left on and Amoo came off.  Why did it take so long for Politic to come on to the pitch.  7 mins left of the game.  

We've certainly gifted a fair few to the oppositions this season so far and by the looks of it, probably will do so in future games if we can't tighten up at the back!

No, but a third goal would have killed them. In football momentum counts for a lot and as <ovf censored> as they are, it's not really a surprise they won it after getting an undeserved equaliser late on.

One of those games 99 times out of 100 you win, I was furious we were going to draw that but when they got the free kick you just knew what was to come.

Two massive home games now, frustrating thing is Oldham by far the worst side we’ve played this season, that should of been convincing. Missed Smudge today that’s for sure.

Its okay saying that but we said that at Sutton as well... 6 or 7 games ago

Not sure how much of a problem it is, but our side is definitely smaller than most in League Two. We have a midfield on midgets if Walker isn't playing.

Clarke was correct, we didn’t miss the strikers, we cannot deal with balls in the box, and we need to work at it. Well we have been working at it, and it’s still happening. I am sure that DC knows that he has to rectify it in the Jan window.

Basically the blue print on how to beat us is stay in the game and lump the ball into the box as much as possible when you get the chance. Sadly for us a lot of League Two sides are perfectly happy to do the latter.

Unless it's rectified we're going to drop points against so many sides we're clearly better than.

Haven't you killed your own argument there? If this happens only every 6 or 7 games, and we react the way we have done on each previous occasion, we'll be right up there. Obviously not ideal, but all teams have this type of issue now and again. I'm not worried at all. Disappointed, yes. But not worried
