not blown my frock up. seems a wasted wage. strolled up and down the pitch today *again* am i missing something?

 

we have mal benning and dan jones (and if you want to be pedantic gibbo) who can sit in that position when its glaringly obvious we needed a striker in the lee hughes mould who can bag us 15 goals between now and the end of the season?

We could have Salah, Messi and Pele up top. Without the service they wouldn't score either. Hussey was brought in to help with the service into the box. What did he do today? Set up our goal.

If nothing else, this thread just proves that there are only 3 certainties in this life - Death, taxes, and Vale fans moaning

Can't believe this thread, he has got better with each game he has played, set the goal up, another great ball in for Wilson, set Harratt up for the effort that hit the post and good defensively, not sure what else he could have done.  For me today along with Wilson and Hall again our stand out performers.

Not Gibbo. Looks a bit past his best. Done alright without pulling up any trees. The corner was about the first decent set piece delivery. And that said, they made I right hash of defending it.  In a polarized world of social media "ay's ow reet" doesn't cut much. Put in a decent cross for the Wilson header.

Solid defensively. Done alright. Nothing special.  But not crap.  Think Hall is the better signing just slightly.  Smithy and Hall could do a job in a 4 at the back. Martin just looked surplus to requirements today without doing badly.  His heading is just - weak.

I think he suffers by comparison to Gibbons in the form he was in pre injury. Good second half today.

I think this is a major problem with fans,Hussey is never going to be charging down the left(although who was it who got free in the area but decided to cross when he could of had a shot really,yes Hussey outpaced the defence). His crossing is probably the best at the club,he was playing virtually every game in League one this season when we signed him,for me he is class and is settling in.

Bloke behind me who drives me nuts by moaning all game chose him yesterday asking his dad i think if we can just send him back

Classic vale fans unfortunately… you can see him being slowly painted with the scapegoat brush now Martin is starting to play well.

Altjough the new keeper who had been at the club for 24 hours wasn’t absolutely perfect in his first ever game in-front of a defence he hadn’t trained fully with… so they might pick him. The race is on!

Goodness knows what it would be like if we decided to encourage players who aren’t immediately perfect more than the average team? Quite useful I would imagine… but alas we will never know.

Hussey has been a brilliant addition.

I think some fans still have a 90s obsession with players swinging crosses in to the box. I still maintain we don’t have the forwards to be playing that game type of game constantly. Maybe he’s settling in but his delivery hasn’t been as consistent as I expected it to be and that was certainly hyped up before he came. As with other players he can be sloppy in possession at the back too. Is he better than what Worrall or gibbo have produced playing wing back? Probably not so far IMO. Is he a steady player that will do a decent job for us? Yes absolutely.

Frankly we have been spoilt with Worrall and Gibbo as wing backs, energetic, positive, dynamic and IMO 2 of the best in that position in our league.  Bear in mind he’s been brought in to replace Gibbo at left wing back so that we have a left footer there. But one of our best performers of the season was dropped when Hussey came in, so he has to be producing better performances than Gibbo did and I don’t think he has so far. 

I think as a wingback he’s defensive minded, sits too deep at times to become a left back when he should be higher up the pitch, and apart from the odd occasion doesn’t  look to get beyond the opposition full back. But he’s steady enough and like I said we’ve been spoilt by Gibbo and often what we already have under own noses isn’t always appreciated when a player comes to us from a higher level. 

That’s just my 2p based on the games he’s played so far. He’s certainly not a scapegoat for me and no doubt he’s a steady player who’s always going to be a 6 or 7 out of 10 every week. But he doesn’t have the spark of a Worrall or Gibbo that can worry an opposition fullback and when you play with wingbacks you need that spark and fire in a player.
