Match Thread: FAC3 Port Vale v Brentford

If we paid them less respect then they would have cut us to ribbons with their passing. They are three divisions and several million pounds craftier than us.

Their second goal was a carbon copy to Rochdale’s winner against us in September where Benning got caught wrong side. The first goal was very similar to Sunderland’s goal in the league cup back in August when Worrall pressed a goal kick and they worked an overload down our right. Both goals are an occupational hazard of the system we play.

Brentford are a really good team.  

Both intelligence wise and speed of feet they were streets ahead 

But I agree with MBE , I can't understand any negative comments. We gave it a go. Had we gone gung-ho from the off we'd of been 3 down at half time. 

They brought a couple of big hitters on to see the game out. 

Their worst player would be miles better than our best player . 

It's gone now. A massive promotion humdinger next week and let's send the ponytailed one home with zero points and a few scuffs and bruises after Smith gives it him .

He will be drying his tears with his ponytail. Fair play to him though, he has grown it pretty damn quick: extensions maybe 🤔🤔🤔

Not sure of anyone else picked up on this but I think Pett was asked to do a man mark job on Bidstrup second half, the blonde lad in the middle wearing 28. He ran the show first half but Pett never let him out of sight 2nd half and he was far less effective.

Spot on, it took 49 minutes for Vale to put a tackle in on no. 28, who ran the show first half. After that Pett was closing him down and forcing him back which allowed us to move further forward. In saying that no.28 was good and I liked his range of passing, any chance of getting him on loan ??

Chased everything. Pressurised they’re players into errors and created chances for us. He did lots. He did much more than Pett and Conlon today.

So what did he do.

Harried, pressed and generally made a nuisance of himself high up the pitch, which allowed to push the rest of the side much further forwards. Also showed some great touches. What did the others (such as Conlon etc) do that made Garrity look, according to you, 'awful again'?

All the Vale players pressures and harried evinced by the fact we made a game of it. Making a nuisance of yourself high up the field and chasing around isn't enough. What great touches did Garrity have?

Gibbo and Conlon did much more than Garrity with the ball at their feet although Gibbo didn't have his best game.

I heard word that turnstile issues led to many people forcing open a gate in the Railway? Would that explain the seemingly understated attendance?

I think the Stewards opened the gate as a relief turnstile but it quickly got rushed by the sheer amount of people still stuck outside. To be clear I don’t think from watching up top that it got violently forced open or stormed, but rushed as there was only like 2 stewards were on it. 

Complete disaster outside if I’m honest in terms of managing the anticipated crowds, there were about 7 snaking massive queues for 4 turnstiles. They should have barricaded the gates with those metal portable fence things, had a few stewards on them and opened them from the beginning as extra relief turnstiles.

Just bumped into a badly dressed young stoke fan in the toilet with his dad who said he watched vale today and was very impressed with the way we played 2nd half and the atmosphere 👍

Hope they didn't smash them up

What’s the fascination for Stoke fans and the Vale toilets?

Again you’re judging Gibbo and Garrity by the things they did or didn’t do creatively. Gibbo was excellent defensively and shouldn’t have gone off for Benning, Garrity playing higher up took the game to them, he won the ball back, made a nuisance of himself, pressured them into mistakes and when he got the ball he kept it to keep the pressure on them. Not everything a player does on the pitch is about what he creates in terms of chances or goals. Football is much more than that without the ball too.

As for the game, it really should have been 2-2 when Dennis rounded the keeper but the only reason we were playing today is because he did it against Burton so can’t grumble too much that he scuffed his shot. We had them wobbling massively at the time and who knows what would have happened if Politic could have just rolled it into an empty net to equalise, the roof would have come off. Their manager made all those changes shortly after for a reason, we had them on the ropes for a decent spell generating chance after chance in the second half. 

The difference in technical skill was evident and we just got picked off with ease on the break as I expected we would.

I thought their following was poor numbers wise and significantly poorer still noise wise. Might as well have been playing Salford. 

Disappointed to read of Wilson getting constantly slagged off in an earlier post. You can tell he wasn’t match sharp, no surprise first game back after a bad fracture is it? I don’t know what planet some fans live on at times. It would have been interesting to see what would have happened if we had Proctor back today as we lacked that strength up top. 

Good run out for the injured lads and despite a loss actually a bit of a confidence boost I think from how well we played during spells. League 2 teams would not be able to cope with some of our football today.

I've realised that Paul is the guy who was banging on about how we should re-sign Pope in the summer. So don't feel the need to argue with his opinion anymore
