Match Thread: Colchester United v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

Sorry, but that was atrocious. I get posters trying to be positive and all that, but seriously we look nothing like a promotion team at all. Terrible game by two terrible teams. We look a million miles away from where we need to be following that bilge.

Agreed but I worry that we’ve become a side with only one creative midfielder.   When Conklin comes back he’ll be marked out of the game as opponent know that he’s the creator of chances 

Conlon is out for the rest of the season .... we are going nowhere

We have seemingly lost virtually all of our creativity since Conlon's been ouit--surely I'm not the only one who thinks that?

By far our best player.

This has been coming, lack of goals, how can anyone be surprised. Two youngsters signed in the window, surpless goalkeepers, two poor further signings of Cooper and Charsley and other players not replaced. It isn't just Conlon missing or Gibbons injuries we just don't look good enough. Where was Amoo? Played to their level today and deserved absolutely nothing.

Well, poor overall that was, from an attacking perspective. AC, for me, is showing why he's a coach and not a manager. Seems clueless from a tactical standpoint, and welded to 343. Sooner we get DC back the better

AC doesn't want to be where he is, and would probably admit himself this is why he is a coach

Just bored and fed up with vale at the minute. Sick of mediocrity season after season. Every year we start well and fade. We will lose our best players in the summer and then start again. Can’t <ovf censored> wait.

We're getting messages to say that he's out for the rest of the season, which, if true, is really bad news.  I also reiterate an earlier point--why have we neded up with 3 goalies and insufficient cover in midfiled--strange bit of logic from the director of football!

To be honest its not down just to AC. If the players cannot pass to each other or make movement to receive the ball - they are footballers apparently, they shouldn't have to be told what the basics are.

Most posters will try and find the positive.  We are now beginning to look more like a side that should actually be at the other end of the league.  Thank goodness we got enough points in the first half of the season.  

The sad thing is we know the team can play better and that is what hurts most for the fans.  We will get the usual from the after match from Crosby and co.  Just play the same after match talk from the previous games.  "We will go and look at the match.  We will all learn from this after watching the game on monday and work on it during the week for the next match".

Is Amoo another injury?

We have quality players but why why why does he play 3 4 3.....it doesn't work. It creates nothing. We lose midfield. The strikers need to work together and when they are 3 up front they are too far apart.

Wrong team selection today!! Needed 3 in midfield, one of which should have been Walker. How does Cooper get a shirt??

This loss may give them a kick up the back side they need.

Don't tell me doing to much in the dojo and picked up a back injury.  🤔

Not sure getting Lucas back is the answer.  We have to improve all over the pitch and show some creativity and wanting to win the game.  It seems we just going through the motions now and can't wait for the season to be over.  

This season started off so promising and we saw Vale play awesome football.  Now it is poor from the players.

This season started off so promising and we saw Vale play awesome football.  Now it is poor from the players. - yes - this is part of the problem, we have all built our hopes up so much, it is resulting in utter dismay now 

Happy clapper alert now - iv just looked at the table without thinking about the quality of performances, and pre season, I would have taken our position at this point in time

How can the team perform like that agaibst easiest opposition they will face for rest of season. Knowing a win would have boded well for automatic promotion they respond like this. Put Murray in charge of team. Disgraceful performance and result. If Lucas injured, get Stone back in.

Let’s hope today was a low point performance wise.  The formation doesn’t appear to suit us but worse for me is that the players don’t seem to have the required desire or passion to push us into the playoffs.  We look so slow and ponderous with and without the ball.  It was like watching a friendly today.

I don’t think anyone can find positives today.

Fair point as well, i cant argue with that mate - how hard can it be to kick a ball 20 feet to another person dressed in black 🙂
