I think there's two sides being presented, based on how optimistic/pessimistic you slant.

A) We're not losing and are at least evenly matched/edging every game. The return of Conlon could start turning draws into wins, and from there we should be able to make the playoffs and from there anything could happen.

B) We aren't getting any better, play some dire stuff, our best striker can't stay fit, and we have an imbalanced squad which is really struggling to create chances, and has done for 10+ games. Playing like this might get us into the playoffs, just, but we've got no hope of winning them.

Either could turn out to be true.

Or C) We just simply limp into mid table mediocrity , and start all over again next season , ground hog day

Very disappointed. Went into a few pubs after game and every Harrogate fan spoken to said Vale were much the better side. Not confident at any stage of game that Vale would score. Harrogate were as poor as Rochdale. Four easy points dropped!!!! Joel Cooper is the weakest link.

That was so dull. And lame. We scrapped a draw against a bog standard L2 team.  That is where we are. A bog standard L2 team. Accept that, fine.  But that is where we are.

You’re right. And the worrying thing is, we don’t look a good side at the moment. I think we’re also where we’re at in terms of squad capabilities.  We will win a few more before the end of season but we will finish a bit short of the top 7 for me. We’ve got no spark, flair, skill, anything to get me off seat. We look a mid table plodder who hasn’t got much to play for and considering where we are that’s alarming. Yes we’re on this unbeaten run but not winning games which we need to do. Tonight was very poor again, just like Saturday was and Rochdale was. 
 

the recruitment in January wasnt great (which isn’t strange because all I’ve heard all season is trust the process rubbish. We’ve got a huge team of recruiting staff who haven’t got it right.) . We’ve got three keepers who aren’t much good, Charsley? What a waste of a signing, so is cooper who I think is as bad as I’ve seen for a while. What’s he actually do? Hall is decent for this level and prob one of the best in the league. Hussey is decent but he’s not going win us games in that position so was he worth the big wage to take a decent corner? 
 

who knows but we will be in league two again next season and it must get a lot better or a few will start to get a bit pissed off with this again.

Decent player shame he’s been plagued by injuries for a few year. We should’ve known that before we signed him though it was always a gamble as was Wilson in keeping them both fit. We’ve missed both for large chunks of the season and it’s hurt us.

Jesus Christ!  There's some right proper moaning on here; could have sworn this was a vale supporters forum.

I hope and pray the players don't read this crap.

I, too, thought we were the better side; I thought we edged it against a team that put up a good opposition last night.  

If you'd have offered me a point at the start of the game i'd have snapped your hand off.  

For me we need 6 wins and 2 more draws to be comfortably in the play-off's; anything more than that would be ideal.

KTF and support the team - or go Stjoke

It is called discussing the game  No one here is not 100% Vale.  You mentioned  KTF and support the team - or go Stjoke .  Okay. Personally  the <ovf censored> make me want to puke.

Snapped your hand off for a point? So will you expect us to beat Colchester Saturday or will you be happy with another point against poor opposition?

Ifs and buts seem to be part of vale fans vocabulary. If we’d beaten them or if we had scored that or if we lose at the weekend. Too much focusing on something that didn’t or hasn’t happened. We aren’t great to watch at the minute but we are still in touching distance of the play offs. I don’t care how we get there as long as we do. 
 

Wilson got mentioned in the same breath as proctor being a crock a few posts ago. Bit harsh on Wilson I think because you can’t legislate for players breaking a bone in a tackle. That’s just unlucky. Just like Cass was when he rolled his ankle in training. Players can’t be conditioned for those kind of eventualities.
