Match Thread: Bradford City v Port Vale


Recommended Posts

Also let breadwinner pick Tuesday’s XI. Whatever mad formation he goes for and whichever players he puts out of position I think we will still win.

That would take us to 79 and will possibly (depending on other results) give us a play off spot. However, I still predict that we shall require Lady luck to ride with us if we're to get into the top 3.

79 has been enough for the automatic slot in a couple of recent seasons, and 80 in another. Then it seems to have been around 84/85.

Another great win and a brilliant week. Not many of us expected 9 points. 

I was massively frustrated after the Rochdale, Harrogate and Colchester games. Admittedly I thought we’d blown it and couldn’t see this turn around. So fair play lads.

Let’s keep the momentum going.

Massive game on Tuesday. Deserves a big crowd.

Too much to do - 2 points off the play offs with 2 games in hand. The bloke must be on the wind up. 

Carl is actually Jimmy the Sjoke fan off Radio Sjoke. Both hate their clubs yet claim to be fans. 

I'm sure if we get promoted Carl will say we don't deserve it

Don’t complain until you’ve got 6+ out for half the season, is my reaction to that.

Obviously Atangana will be banned as well.

Noumbe is their real danger man and he didn’t play today.

Listening to Jimmy is a joy.  One, possibly the only, reason I listen to P&G

Just seen the goals back. I disagree with their fans that their was a foul in the lead up to our second. Yes Proctor does pull him down, but literally right before their player was grabbing Proctor. So for me it’s either our advantage or the ref let’s it go because both were at it.
I would say it was 100% a foul, however there were numerous occasions before that where Proctor had been fouled in a similar manner by the same player and nothing was given. And at least occasion where a free kick was given against Proctor when he had been fouled.

Just leaving now after a few celebratory sherbets.

Vale all over. Complete cruise control to fingernails job.

Well done lads . Excellent. 

Ps we need a Crosby song. He's doing wonders under terrible circumstances.  

Darren, hope you’ve enjoyed yourself today, we used to sing white Christmas, wasn’t that a Crosby song.?

Very enjoyable mate. Nervy last few minutes but good performance. 

He deserves a lot of credit after the safe predictable stuff we were playing,  Crosby has taken the shackles off and we look a side once again.

The ref had been letting six o'one and half o'dozen of the other challenges go all game so it was no surprise that he waived play on in the challenge between Proctor and Songo'o. Someone (ClintonBoulton ?)  made this point at half time and commented how refreshing it was to see a ref let the game go on and flow.

At the end of the day Proctor was more than a handful for Songo'o.

Yes, I agree with everything you’ve said, pity the shackles weren’t taken off earlier. We put to much emphasis on our opponents. Injuries and Covid didn’t help but had we of just gone at teams we’d have been in a better position, than leaving it until now where every game has been and is going to be a cup final. I’m just praying that PVFC break with their tradition of playing really well, then a decent crowd turn up to support them and it all goes pear shaped. It’ll be brilliant this time next week if we have another six points on the table. We’ll probably start seeing the odd team dropping out of the promotion/play off contention.

There's a few games to come where we the owe the opposition a drubbing after what happened in the reverse fixture.

Sutton. Oldham. To a lesser degree Smalsall and Salford. A confident Wilson and a boisterous, ratty Proctor is exactly the sort of forward line you'd want at L2 level when there are games coming with a bit of an edge to them, wrongs to right.
