Match Thread: Port Vale v Walsall


Breadwinner

Recommended Posts

That one is on Clarke for me. Got the tactics wrong in the first half and that’s where the game was lost.

For Askey and 4-3-3 see Clarke and 3-5-2. For all the feted tactical analysis there is little evidence that we play every game on its merits and flex our approach accordingly.

Fair play to Walsall. Turned up for their cup final. Won’t be troubling the top 7 come May though on tonight’s evidence.

What a truly atrocious performance. Same sort of performance as Bradford, except even worse. Conlon is an idiot, takes far too much time messing around when on the ball and that’s what got him sent off. 
Jones cannot start the next game, that’s two abysmal games from him in the last 3.

Special mention to the ref. May be the most boring game I’ve ever watched. Think it spent half the time with no play actually happening. Wouldn’t let the game flow whatsoever and never dealt with their continuous time wasting.

Vale players did not turn up and play like we know they could.  They should take a lot of the blame for losing this match.

However, the ref and linesmen did not do their job tonight.  He let Walsall players throw our players to the ground, fall down at the slightest touch.  Again another ref making it all about him.

Maybe tho will be the end of playing players out of position. Can’t keep playing the same formation regardless of who’s available. No need for a complete change of everything we’ve built but players like Walker, Legge, Worrall further forward need to be given the chance now.
