So how did the new players look.

Wheres the ratings .

Did Smith put the ball in  the net with his hand and why ?

Good win that Scunthorpe did double over us last season we have done double over them this season .

Just what was required after unlucky defeat v Salford in prior home defeat .

Glad we had some luck .

I'd go 6 for everyone. The exceptions 

Smith 7 , Garrity 7, Wilson 8 

Was going be stingy for Holy and Amoo but because we won they got a fortunate 6 too

I could be in the minority here but i actually thought that Martin had a decent game yesterday,I would also like to see more of Cooper who looked a livewire when he came on willing to run with the ball and has some pace about him.

 

I agree re Martin, I've also been impressed with Hall, defends well and has an eye for a forward pass. Jones might have have to wait a while to get his chance back as the left-sided CH.

Ben Garrity and Wilson 2nd half murdered them. We need more gut busting players to follow their examples in taking g a game to our opponents.  Ben never gave them any breathing space, he was in their faces continually. Wilson, when he dropped ayard from the penalty box manouvered so much space to turn in and then attempt to slide rule passes inside their defenders. Was class to admire. When all our injuries are solved by God we ought to show this proxy league we are back and here to cause havoc.

Hall looks already to be a real bargain. Assured, can pass and a good presence in the air.

This isnt a reply to the quote above, as I agree completely with the comments on Hall and that Martin played well.

However, there is a problem with a vocal minority of Vale fans (and football fans in general) in that they succumb to groupthink - a bunch of "supporters" decide player 1 is crap and start to heckle. Others around them start watching player 1 for mistakes and then join in the heckling (even if players 2-11) are making more mistakes. Hence, it spreads like chinese whispers and player 1 will always be crap.  Insert your own names for player 1............... but THIS season alone, id venture to a greater or lesser extent Martin (every game), Rodney, Wilson, Walker, Hussey (after game number 1), Johnson (also game 1) and even Holy yesterday (game 1) - over half the first team and iv probs forgotten some - it would be laughable if it wasnt so sad.

Play a new keeper who DC rates better yes, but to play him without any training with the team, no!

Isn't there a quote about "The best training is doing the job?" Not a whole lot of choice, really - maybe Stone would benefit from a loan spell in the National League? Whereas confidence in Lucas must be low. Good keeper but there's always going to be the feeling whether he will go daft again? It's an awkward situation - personally, I felt it was the right call.

I have a question - why were Scunthorpe allowed to make 4 subs? I thought they had at the time but just checked and according to sky they did. I thought the 5 subs allowed was just temporary for last season?
