Rubbish. At least let them know they've had a game . No crunching tackles, no real fight from DC today, hopefully because we are in league not cup mode.

I love our owners but no card payment allowed, yet advertised, car park full at 1330 yet loads of free spaces, and turnstiles not open.. Anyone else would get <ovf censored>, hope we dont.

The free spaces were reserved for media apparently.

I didn’t buy anything but heard about the contactless thing not working, I agree totally that that’s not good enough as it was specifically advertised by Vale that it’s now available in every stand. People aren’t going to be impressed at queueing for 20 mins only to not be able to actually buy anything, bit tinpot that.

Well I thoroughly enjoyed that. Was less frustrated with the first half than most, thought we blatantly set out to be compact and restrict their chances, (which we generally did effectively), stay in the game and then have a real go in the second half, which again we did by hitting them with Politic and Harratt (who looks a boss player). So can't argue with DC's tactics, think it maximised our slim chance to get something out of it.

The first goal was admittedly poor, but I think more down to communication than any individual I'd say; looked like both defenders dropped, and then both went to ball at same time, kind of thing that happens with an unfamiliar back 3. We missed Jones, having Smith instead of a left footer there made a big difference, especially to our build up play.

Thought Cass was generally excellent though, drove us forward and combined brilliantly with the indefatigable Woz all game.

Lots of positives, especially Harratt's goal, and the 10 minutes before and after the goal were fantastic. Thought Garrity drove that, and they really struggled to cope with us running at them, we were getting behind them at will, which considering they're a prem team is a massive testament to the quality we have now.

Good minutes in the legs for everyone, especially Wilson and Amoo who both looked rusty, and if we play like that against anyone in our division we will roll them.

UTV!

Could have written this post myself youth. Noticed how well Cass did also.

The car park was weird. Not only were there plenty of spaces, I walked through there at the end of the game and was nobody was getting in their cars, no cars were queueing to get out of there.

Think those spaces were made available for media.  That would perhaps explain why no one were getting in their cars to leave. 

I could be wrong.... I often am! 🙂

Thought Cass was excellent today. Everything good started with him. Garrity had a fantastic second half, his workrate is phenomenal. Anyone who didn't see what he brought knows nothing about football. New lad looked good, good couple of flick ons and good touch and took up some natural goalscoring positions.

At 2-1, they were panicking and kept giving the ball away. The difference was that they were so clinical in spite of very little attacking play second half. Their number 28 ran the show first half but once we got tighter he wasn't really in it second half. Play like that against league 2 teams and we would absolutely annihilate them.

Atmosphere second half was as good as it's been in years. Really enjoyed it.

Case was good apart from the abysmal re starts Vale do knocking it back to him before he proceeds to belt it into touch- surely we can work out a better routine from kick off 😄

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 👍

How did you know he was a Stoke fan was he throwing it out of the window?

I've watched the Vale since '64, and I've been saying the same thing since '64! 🤣🤣🤣

Great effort.  Didn't deserve that 4-1 but on a positive Northampton and Newport had shock defeats .

Let me give you my experience today in the Bycars. On my own today as son at work, sat in my season ticket seat.

First half an hour had to endure two ' fans ' behind me constantly berating Wilson. He's bone idle, no effort etc. Eventually I'd had enough and turned round to say give the lad leeway he hasn't kicked a ball barely for 8 weeks. Abuse followed,  including one getting incredibly aggressive screaming at me it's his JOB. 

They then continued with the criticism making sure I heard and quipped ' it's probably his first game '. This is directed at a bloke ( me ) who was in gale force torrential rain at Bristol the other week. 

They then tried intimidating me with constant jibes. Culminating in a cheer and an ' about time ' when Wilson was subbed. 

When we had that amazing 10 minute spell one quipped ' why didn't we do this first half ' . His stooge was straight in ' because that bone idle git Wilson was on ' . 

A really uncomfortable afternoon for me so thanks fellow ' fans '. I didn't move seats which was possibly their aim. An absolute pair of anchors . Who had I not faced a lifetime ban and court appearance would be arranging to see their dentist on Monday if I had my way. Folk on here who know me will testify that I would of as well.

I'll be there next week and against Salford too so if you are reading this I suggest you get behind every player and accept other opinions without such behaviour.  

Bycars has always been full of miserable gits. My biggest pet peeve in football especially at Vale is the odd twonk who does nothing better then spend a full 90 minutes slagging a player off. 

JMW , Amoo and Dodds all spring to mind. 

Convinced lockdown has made people more angry and more moany. 

Sorry to see you had to deal with these idiots. Same idiots that were probably loving Wilson when he scored a hat trick on the first round.

I like to sit all on my own some amidst the oceans of empty, seats near the edge of bycars - but I can still hear the crap that comes out of some mouths - it's an annoyance for sure but I always remember what the good book says about never arguing with an idiot because he will bring u down to his level and beat u on experience 😍😍🤣

Thoughts wow firstly what a tremendous second half display Garrity immense the new lad terrific Cass and Worrall superb linking down the  right ,so much good intent in our play I really enjoyed it I think it deserved a minimum 3 goals but wasn't meant to be .

Proud though I think there was a lot of magic about the Vale support today and the  players did themselves no harm at all .

Mbeumo is class I quite like Brentford they took there goals well the fourth a calamity of errors by the Vale at the back leading to a pen .

Not a day for criticism when you coming out the  ground buzzing after losing 4-1 knowing that maybe 2-3 would have being a fairer reflection folk would think your mad no not at all the Vale are a very entertaining go for it outfit and I think they will have learnt a lot from today's defeat .

The new lad wow brilliant and Dennis Politic sets up a goal and for those fans who didn't go went around the keeper then miskicked but after what he did at Burton he will not be getting grief of me .

Loved it

They're a Premier League team, Dave. I have no idea what you were expecting. You can't go at them for 90 minutes, otherwise they'd have carved us up on the break even more than they did and it'd be game over at HT. We were a slice of luck away from 2-2 in the 75th minute.

A shot, a few fouls, some slide tackle/fouls , some sleeves rolled up and get into them.

First half was men against boys but in fairness we did in the main contain the threat, just annoyed their goal came from sloppy play and a break away.

Second half we were outstanding, the new lad and Politic really caused them problems, today convinces me we need to try and sign Politic permanent because he just looked comfortably playing even against a top flight side, his touch and ability to keep the ball. The way he teases their full back before the cross for the goal. Excellent.

Harratt looks lively, great goal will give him massive confidence and he really got stuck in physically despite being a smaller lad so looks really to test himself, excited to see how he does with us going forward.

Crowd excellent, loads of atmosphere and really in the main got behind the team.

4-1 flattered Brentford but we bring on a 19 year old for his debut and they throw on Mbeumo and Ivan Tony… size of the task was huge but can take massive heart from that.

Please indulge me as I'm not going straight to my thoughts on the game?

Today was a special day for me - my birthday was 28th Dec, and my present from Nick and Hayley, my kids, and Paighton and Zak, grandkids was to have the "posh" package - meal, VIP seats, etc...and it was fab! Thanks to the Vale backroom and catering staff - lovely meal; friendly faces all round and helpful staff...and a very decent house Malbec! Great view from our seats - apologies to those people we persuaded were in the wrong seats, when we were, in fact, on the wrong row! Oooops!! But a lovely day, and treat for me, and I shall experience this again! Shame about the result...
