You only post when a player makes a mistake,you continue to let yourself down,surely still not bitter?

I thought Martin had a good game Saturday and apart from the mistake tonight i also dont think he had a bad game,in fact he did well not to bring the man down which he could of done and then we would have <ovf censored> it with 10 men imo

I thought he was excellent tonight. Dosent help being left one on one at the back. Agreed did well to not get sent off

How many goals have our 2 loan inexperienced strikers notched now?

Thinking about this it bodes well for our scouting and new approach to signings.

Been nice seeing Charsley edge his way in recently too after being like the missing man initially. Clearly Cooper doesnt fit our best system but in glimpses i can see why we signed him. Again with martin he's played his way in and all credit to him.

It's easy to talk in hindsight but the keeper situation might have been our only miss step in jan. However i think with cov's rash sending off it was right to bring in another body. Probably really hard to sign an experienced keeper on loan in jan just to sit them on the bench, so no regrets that we started playing holy. It was the right time to bench him out for stone though who has done well. 

Onwards and upwards 😀

7 which is, notably, more than double the combined total of Ryan Loft and Kane Hemmings, 2 of the 'proven L2 strikers' that people were screaming for in January. And 2 of those goals were penalties by Hemmings
I'm still fumming about this, we needed an experienced striker and we should of smashed the wage structure to get one.
I'm sure the other players would of understood.....

Re. The crowd yes there could have been a few more there but times are hard for some not everyone can afford a season ticket and not everyone can afford to go to 2 home games in quick succession.

Hats off to those that were there, they created a brilliant atmosphere.

I thought it was an excellent team performance tonight. One thing I don’t think can be questioned is this team has some character. Twice in a row we’ve fallen behind and instead kept being positive and turned the game round. Great credit to the players and staff.

James Wilson is just a hugely gifted player. His intelligence and technical ability is as good as can remember in a Vale shirt. Thought defensively we were very good. Yes Martin should have done better on their goal but didn’t let it affect him and played well afterwards. One thing I think may be forced for Saturday is Benning to start in place of Hussey who looked like he was struggling when he came off. If anything with Benning having more pace it might make us even trickier as an opponent.

Great result, a game we had to win with all the other results going against us but 3 points gained on Sutton and Mansfield and that goal difference better than everyone's apart from Forest Green.  The only negative for me was the gate, we are going for the play offs and only 4300 Vale fans turned up, Carol, the players and management team deserve more fans than that and hopefully more there next Tuesday.

Think the gate was wrong tonight there was more people than saturday

We've made a good side look very ordinary tonight. Lots of credit to Harret and stone, but Smudge and Garritty were immense tonight, doing the dirty work under the radar. Back to back wins for the first time in ages, we can do this boys and girls.

Not long back in from the match .

Thoughts overall I feel we deserved win .

There goal was against the run of play in my opinion has Vale started much the brighter side.

Pett shot wide after great set up play from someone at a guess JP or BG as we responded well .

Then BG has sent Wilson on his way he as shot and its gone in OK there goalie probably shouldn't be beaten by that .

Then Wilson being put clean through and the linesman sticks his flag up  as Vale generally are the better of the two sides first half Absolutely. 

Second half we actually first 15 started quite well BG has headed over and we looked to me like a matter of time before we scored .

Then Nigel Clough the good manager has made some changes and they in fairness were the better side for a lot of the remainder of the game but ⁹⁸ we kept plugging away and scored the two goals through sheer hard work and perseverance and the ball ran for us at both ends has we gave them a golden chance score and Stone saved and then I think we deflected one onto our own bar while they were cursing there misfortune we were battling especially JAMIE PROCTOR was who led the line magnificently and he flicked on with head for Harratt to score first of his 2 and from Bennings excellent ball in has put it on a plate for his second .

Brilliant Night the sky's the limit .

My man of the Match was Jamie Proctor followed closely by Smith and Martin and Hall but everyone gave there all so no marks under 7 .4 tonight .

Well done Vale

Great win. Solid performances all round. I thought Wilson was awesome for 60 mins until he ran out of steam.

I think the defence played very well tonight.. Martin struggled  1st 30 mins but grew into the game showed his experience in the 2nd half. Smith was…..well standard Smith  performance and I thought Hall had his best performance in a Vale shirt.

Again this group showed  a lot of character to come from behind against a team I think will  be in the playoffs minimum.

MOTM for me Stone. Made very good crucial saves when needed.The one on to the bar was top class.

Biggest congratulations though goes to Crosby.He showed some balls to try and win the game with good substitutions where it would have been easier to keep it tight and be content with a draw. 

8 more wins to go.

Thought benning was very good as well when he came on added a lot of energy down the left 

He did well we he came on. Much better than the bloke he replaced. Hussey has been a huge disappointment for me. Some good balls in the box but after that he offers nowt at all. Throw ins look suspiciously like fouls. His passing is awful and he persistently just smashes it forward with no direction. 

Cracking win though regardless. On to Bradford with more of the same please!

Very entertaining game. Stating the obvious but the subs amazingly worked for us. Their first sub changed the flow of the game in their favour but then we had to react and how. Obviously Harratt gets the plaudits but Benning had a great little cameo. Again, like Stone, I watched him at Burton and thought he had a really good game and was unlucky to drop out of the picture.

More widely, I thought Stone was excellent and his save second half could well be a defining point of the season; the three CB’s were decent save for the breakdown in communication that lead to the goal although it was a dreadful ball by Pett; some of Wilson’s touches are just superb and likewise Proctor; and Charsley I thought was industrious and how he didn’t score early in the 2nd half I’ll never know, just have to say well done to the defender.  

And Harratt…. well that’s how to influence a game. I actually said at the time I thought Edmundson might have been better because of their physicality but he put himself about, chased, harried and is that ‘fox in the box’ which, with a season or two under his belt will be a very good player.

Seems harsh to pick negatives but I thought it was a surprisingly poor crowd given the importance of the game, saved by a decent number of away fans. I also thought Worrall was a bit off his game, injured/knackered maybe? I still think the midfield is short of a bit of strength and guile, like an Anthony Grant-type player.  

I think we needed that win to give us confidence to kick on and the games don’t get any easier with Bradford hitting some form.

Even with a win tonight we weren't going to get in the top 7, so it wasn't quite a massive game in the bigger scheme of things. As it happens I thought there were far more than 4.2k Vale there tonight...and those there made the noise of many more.
