Need to win both games in hand to get back to 3rd place, assuming the new boys can gel and the goalie situation is sorted.

That's a minimum requirement!  We've clearly lost momentum at the moment and need to get back to winning ways quickly!

We have totally lost our structure and rhythm with the cancellations and new signings. Our passing was poor throughoutwith Hussy’s set pieces tragically bad, his last free kick straight into the hands of their keeper.

Covolan should be sacked. Plenty of decent keepers around who don’t need to collect a ball while kicking a leg out and not getting sent off. He has cost us 9 whole points this season with his antics. 
 

McKirdy, well playing much better than at any point when he was at Vale.

Was working, so couldn’t make the game. Gutted to see the result. Sounds like the matrix needs to get a a couple midfield players in pronto and Walker has to start next game. 

Glad there is a game Tuesday so we have the opportunity to bounce back. Subdued Saturday night in order ☹️

A typical Vale game.  A side not won their last 3 away games, had some of their better players recalled or injured and we hand them 3 points without much of a whimper from the Vale players.

Hate to be in the Vale changing room after that performance from the side and stupidity from Covolan. 

Had high hopes that Covolan would come good and be able to make the jump to league football.  But now would not be unhappy to see him shown the door as he looses his head when the pressure is on and can't be counted on.

It's amazing where all of the 'definite automatic' comments have gone. I'm not saying that they are going to bite the posters of said comments on the ass but I always take anything like that with a pinch of salt now because I won't let other people build my hopes up just for them to be shattered anymore.

Stone

Cass

Hall

Smith

Gibbons

Walker

Conlon

Garrity

Worrall

Amoo/Politic

Harratt

 

That would be something like my 11 for Tuesday. For the love of God, please start to use Worrall as a wide player.

For me, Gibbons has played well on he left this season and shouldn't just be dropped because we signed Hussey. Obviously he could play on the right and if he did then Hussey would be in that team. Thought he was the worst out of the debutants today.

I think Covolan is a top keeper for our league and is far better than stone, as demonstrated by Stone’s cock up when he got chipped.

However, after a third sending off in a season, and such a ridiculous one at that, my patience has worn very thin and for me it’s Stone’s place to lose now.

On the game overall today, we were absolute garbage for 80% of the first half. Just lumping it up top all time, and sitting far too deep and letting them have the ball. Second half who cares, we were buggered after going down to ten men.

Wow, what a completely underwhelming display. Tactics were all wrong, sat off Swindon and they played some lovely give and go passing football. Wilson isn’t fit and shouldn’t be starting. DC needs to take a good hard look at himself if he thinks that deploying these sort of tactics will achieve anything. Yes Covolan hasn’t helped the cause, complete buffoon, but from the first minute they had all the possession and never stopped. I hate to say this and it really hurts me to but, well done Swindon.

Also on the new signings. Hard to judge off todays game so I’ll wait a few until I form my full opinion.

Harratt didn’t have much to go off but worked hard and scored a great goal.

Hall looked decent, was solid, dominant in the air and he looked to bring the ball out the back.

Not impressed with Hussey, didn’t have a bad game as such but I thought he was worse than Gibbo. Seemed a lot more defensive minded and we had less of an outlet.

No way is hussey defensive minded. I noticed him forward just as much as we were down the right. He’s a class player at this level, hard to judge anyone due to Covalon and us having no foothold in the game today Agreed with Harratt and Hall, Hall looked excellent

Lost a game have we? Cue usual meltdown and hysterics! Yes, we were poor today, even with 11 men, and Cov had a moment of madness. Yes, the new signings didn't look great. But it's 1 game. I expect a completely different performance on Tuesday, one of our games in hand.

Think today falls on DC. Tactics were completely wrong and their LB was getting the freedom of VP first half. It was the same against Brentford. The current thinking seems to be to keep it as tight as possible for the first half, before taking it to them in the second. I'm as disappointed as anybody, but I'm not panicking.

Only real worry for me presently is Conlons form. He looks very poor at the moment, and has for the last few games. Needs a break IMHO
