Pass back, pass back, miscontrol it, hoof it forward, lose it and repeat. What a load of **** that was. What's happened to the press, no energy and little skill. Making their number 6 look like Van Dijk and letting Grant stroll around as though he has the freedom of Burslem.

This has to be up there with one of the worst halves of “football” I’ve ever seen. This is Salford v2.0 you mark my words! 

We have had 3 shots, against Salford we had 17, so 14 to come?

We're solid enough but we are desperately, desperately short of inspiration. Feels like someone has to step up and get us firing else we'll just end up grinding out the rest of the season and ending up mid table.

The worrying thing is that we know Wilson will be going off within the next 10-15 mins so then what????

So assuming Wilson does go off I’d go:

Holy

Smith-Hall-Martin-Hussey

Garrity-Worrall-Walker

Amoo-Harratt-Cooper

We desperately need some creativity in midfield and Worrall is the only one I think can provide it.

No, I meant huffing and puffing but generally look ling worse than a really poor team and them scoring with basically their only attempt to take the points.

Got to give the players a break because of the wind but the midfield looks woeful and there's very little up top.

New goalkeeper looks a real presence.

Did I hear on RS pre-game that Michael Mandron isn't happy, cheeky approach from Vale?

We look like what we are… a group of players playing together for the first time.

conditions aren’t helping at all but there has been far too much change this season. We shouldn’t need to make 7/8 new signings in January - it should only be a couple to make your side stronger.

Darrell is starting to bug me a little with persisting with a back three. Can he not see that most of our players aren’t suited to this formation?

Just absolutely nothing at the minute. Game feels completely flat like a reserve game almost.

Only player making an effort is Wilson 

 

Very worrying!  Come on DC shake things up please

Getting sick of spending so much time and money every week just to have to endure the Burslem statue troupe.

Endure is the operative word. It’s dire. We’re not even a shadow of what we were.

My instinct is always to give the incumbent manager the benefit of the doubt, but I agree with you, his formations/too many changes of personnel are hardly designed to give us the stability and thrust that we need. I'm envious of the clubs around us that are virtually all making progress and consequently forcing us further down the league table!
