This video is amazing… look at Ryan Johnson, managed to get himself in the team and played well against Hartlepool and then didn’t make the team in the cup… what’s his reaction. Having a joyful mental at the end of the game he didn’t play with the players that did and celebrating with the crowd.

Thats team spirit!

probably because he didnt score a hat trick and football fans expect 100% every week

What do people expect him to do every match? We have to be realistic, he's as raw as he ever was, he's not a first choice,but it's Hobson's choice at the moment so encourage him,those who slate him do not help him.

Devante is like the proverbial box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. Tremendous run, goal or pass one minute then the next minute he fails to control the ball, just have to accept him for what he is.

The one thing he does all the time is try, his languid style makes it look like he's not trying but the fire is definitely there.

Amazing win. 2nd half I thought we were excellent. Stop writing us off when it’s 1-0 it’s embarrassing. We’re definitely a league 1 side. I’d say that’s our most impressive win this season. No fit forwards, losing, away from home against a decent side. <ovf censored> brilliant. Rodney did really today so hope he’s ok. Politic, wow. Complete game changer. Amazing vale, everyone at the club deserves a big money tie. 

Agree. Rodney has taken flak, some of it justifiable, but he was very, very good 2nd half and basically was involved in both goals, especially the winner with a beautiful ball into Politic.

Should always wait until the end me owd fruit 😉

Ha, yes agreed. Egg on face.

to be honest though I don’t think anyone saw this coming. Denis did what he does best and changed the game with his direct running and pace. Honestly probably the team in a long while, as we have threat from the bench and strength in depth. Hopefully we can get another forward in before the third round game in January.

With hopefully a big premier league tie in the offering we may get someone decent.

Doesn't get mega excited when the opposition attack and score like the other guy does.  Always feel that commentator loves it when opposition score against Vale.

That happens when Lee Blakeman commentates on Vale as he is a massive stoke fan

And to think some said DC wouldn't generate a team spirit because he'd jettisoned so many of last seasons team and brought too many in, I don't know, I don't have any inside info but it seems to me that the spirit amongst the players is as good if not better than it's ever been.

Strikers are massively overrated. Fans start wailing for a 'proven 20 goal man' and we're out slapping sides in higher divisions away from home with wingers up front.

Just fundamentally a massive club who are far too good at football.
