Any quality,yesterday,was coming through Hussey.

I think the majority agree with that,it just seem some watch a different game or just need someone to target i am all for differing opinions but i just never get this targeting of our own players,I am not the biggest Amoo fan at all but never would i single him out and constantly target him

Steady good player who will be appreciated more when we have Proctor back as his quality will come to the fore then I believe as Proctor would have buried all them 3 chances missed yesterday abiet one was a lovely ball in from Wilson not hussey for young Harratt who's movement was good but header was poor .

I do think we probably need more pace in that position but I do not think he is doing a bad job,2 clean sheets in a row against a free scoring side at home v Leyton Orient and a team who under Keith Hill (a very good lower league manager by the way )who are  fighting for there lives and playing that lad who terrorised us last season Tyrese Sinclair in heavy defeats v Mansfield 7-0 on aggregate. 

So that would suggest to me we not  only have a set piece specialist who can help us get a  vital goal but someone who is solid and can firstly help Vale close the door at the back .

A very good signing .

No Gibbons though .

Man of the match for me yesterday,

I wouldn't go that far. Clearly between Garrity and Wilson for me

Garrity was awful first half, good in the second. For me wilson and hussey clear candidates for man of the match.

Not man of the match for me but certainly one of the better performers and with an assist.

I've just done an opinion piece on the front page about fans needing to give players time - in the case of that feature it was about allowing James Wilson time to find his feet after injury. I think Wilson's performance yesterday shows it can take a few games for some returning players to get match fit. Not all players, some seem to be able to slot right in, but Wilson seems to be one of those who needs a few matches to get used to League Two pace after a break.

I think the same applies with the new signings. While some (Connor Hall) can seemingly fit in seamlessly, it may be that the likes of Hussey need a few games to find their feet. Hussey has played four games for us - for me I think it would be fairer to see how he's doing after ten games, not four.

I genuinely don’t know what some others are seeing if they don’t think Hussey has done well so far. Obviously he’s not a dynamic runner like Gibbo but that’s ok, not many are in his league on that. What we have had is some quality deliveries coming in from that side (when Proctor is back fit will become even more of an asset) and although it’s not the glamorous side of the game we look really solid defensively down that side since he has come in.

I think that centre half is an easier position to quickly bed in to a new side.

You're facing the play, so can see everything, it's a position where you can keep it simple and build from there.

As long as you do the basics, everyone is happy.

It gets more complex the further upfield you go, and expectations are higher too.

Hussey was much better in the second half yesterday. A steady quality pro, you need that. We do have limitations up top without Proctor and it shows. Amoo and Wilson doesn't work, the young lads run and raw. Harratt looks the pick and is aggressive. he made some great early runs yesterday, nobody was on his wavelength and he faded.

Let's see what the next two games bring. DC says it's game by game but these are crucial imo.

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.

 

What about the clever corner in the first half from which Harratt hit the post?

Poster who started this thread is an absolute knob sack. Apart from Wilson, he was the best player on the park for me. Everything in the 2nd half came through him. Are you on crack?


 

 

special mention to the above two quotes - a couple of shining lights in the desert of darkness knows as one vale fan - luv it😁😁😁😁😁👍👍👍👍👍💕

Yes but apart from the two corners, one from which we scored, and from the other hit the post,and helping keep a clean sheet, he didn’t do much else.

Not a bad player, sometimes he looks less comfortable on the ball than he ought to be. Also a very different player to Gibbo.

I hope nobody who’s clutching their pearls about this thread was having a go at the new keeper yesterday.

I thought the new keeper had a good game, looked very assured collecting crosses,yes he did the odd miskick but he’d never played on that pitch before and had only just met his team mates for the first time just prior to ko.

It takes time for players to settle into any team at any level. I do think that he has strengthened the defence and there is no doubt that he has a sweet left foot. Unfortunately, and it is a pet hate of mine with professional footballers, he is so one footed. Difference with Gibbo and Woz is that they will use either foot, whether getting to the bye-line or cutting inside on the other foot. Time will tell.

His quality from corners is there for all to see. He strengthens the squad.

The centre forward position, in the absence of Proctor, is the worry. We've brought two young lads in on loan who may work or may not. Time will tell.

With Wilson behind Proctor, plus support from Woz, Pett, Garrick, Conlon and Gibbo, we were scoring three goals per game from all round the team. 

Hopefully Edmondson has the tools and ability to replace Proctor until he's fit again and Wilson, Woz, Pett, Garrick, Charlsey and Hussey can create the angles and chances that we were creating in October and November. 🤞
