Match Thread: Colchester United v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

Advert:


Dire game and for Vale no midfield for a team chasing the play-offs.

No Conlon and Taylor 'cause of injuries but IMHO both should start when fit and should have started from the first game of the season.

Vale need a bit of magic or a mistake to win this game.

If you play 3 centre backs it’s ESSENTIAL that 1 if not 2 are good with the ball. Hall and Smith have had all of the ball and done nothing with it. It’s the same every week. 

Hall is one of the best ball playing defenders we have seen in years - I agree on Smithie though

He’s better than Smith at it I agree, although he’s not as good as Jones on the ball.

It’s no criticism of Hall, it’s a criticism of the formation. Hall has been brilliant for us.

All a bit predictable, this. 

We’ll probably still win as these are so poor but we might as well forfeit the playoffs if we’re playing like this.

Not looking forward to the 2nd half if nothing has changed player wise or formation wise.

It's as if the management side are happy with we haven't lost DC in your absence - we have just drawn everything with a boring formation and not changing tactics against poor sides.  However, our promotion push has faltered to finishing mid table now.

Come on Vale a couple of quick goals for us and us taking 3 points for once.

Colchester commentators think we are playing well and could step up a gear this half

Are they able to step up any gears at the moment.  Think they have only got used to half a gear and that involves hoof it and hope.

Ref seems to be giving the home side more this half already.  Our player gets took out big style and nothing, their player falls down and gets a free kick.

Come on Vale.  Sounds like Proctor about to come on.

Cooper off and Proctor on.  Are they going to change formation as well to allow Proctor and Wilson work as a 2 and 2 wingers to feed either of them?

Come on Vale now.  Seems we are now playing against 12 as the ref is favouring Colchester players.
