Sorry Paul 6754

I have to ask. Are you Jake Taylors relation ? All i have seen all season is your admiration and backing of Taylor. 

He is not the answer. He is not good enough

No problem SL, you just have a different view than I.

A match fit Jake Taylor is good enough, he has already shown that in a Vale shirt in the 2019/20 season and the times when he's been on the pitch this season. He just needs game time to get match fit. A player doesn't "lose" ability at his age just match fitness and perhaps a tad of confidence. 

The answer to your question is no I'm not.

I didn't know it was not the done thing to admire and back a Vale player but I do admire skill, vision and a range of passing ability in a midfield player much more than running and ratting although a balance is required but the Vale at the moment have far too much of the latter and insufficient of the former.

Yeh I agree with your comment about our midfield without Conlon.

I am disappointed with today but one thing you can’t say about these players is they don’t give 100% effort wise.

I think we are due a change of fortune somehow, somewhere, and maybe Thursday will be the occasion.

I think we should even things up for the second leg ! Let install sprinklers in the Bycars and see how their fans like sitting in the soaking wet for two hours.

5 out of 6? 

6 games ago we beat Hartlepool. 

since then we have played two teams that have gone up automatically, the highest scoring team in the league away and a team we never beat who wanted to beat us for their cup final and for taking their gaffer off them. To say we bottled it is not fair. 

Hi. I wish you and DC luck but you never took our gaffer off us. 
we sacked him then he went elsewhere before you. 
today you did bottle it but I’m sure you will beat Swindon at home to go through.

Just got back. Glad to be still in the tie.

Obviously emotions run high but again to me Williams gave a superb refereeing performance closely followed by the pony tailed one.

Is it just me, or are we too nice ?

They were on at the ref in his face throughout. 

Yes I'm biased but in the first 30 minutes I barely recall us getting a single decision. 

Poor day all round, soaked, stuck for an hour after. 

 

But this is far from over they think they're up already. 

Actually I think that is the most physical I have seen us all season - we put some crunching tackles in all through the first half, esp Charlsly

He was referring to Smallsall who base their whole season around beating us.

We can defo do it. One thing I just don't understand, though, is why we seem so reluctant to play that 3412 with Wilson in the hole in the continued absence of both TC and BW. Our best performance of the season, IMHO, came when we played that way at Carlisle, yet I don't think we've started with it since (though have tried it late on in games). Wilson can give us, in that role, the creativity we've been sorely lacking

Yes and that would mean he doesn’t have to chase down at the front. He’s best in the 10 / behind the top 2.

Mckirdy is a class above in league 2 when he fancies it. DC’s biggest mistake so far as Vale’s Manager has been not getting the best out of him and letting him go. If we had kept Mckirdy this season we would have gone up automatically. That’s the reality. I still fancy us to beat Swindon in the second leg. UTV.

in reality he wouldn't have got double figures... hes just found a  niche where he is happy and having a stand out season just like popey did for us under adams what seems like many years ago.

Mckirdy is playing well and good luck to him... but this really is an exception to the rule where he is concerned.... if Swindon do go hope watch for him to be out of the team by the end of the season and return to League 2.

Did we have the Hamil end?

I hope the Hamil actually makes a difference to the atmosphere, I disagree with most of the negativity on here, the one thing I do agree with is the atmosphere at VP. Starts off well, then decends into chuntering and groaning if we aren't winning. We need to create a 90 minute wall of noise, not just sing when we're winning.

I say that most home games. If we score we start singing.

What happened to the Darrell Clarkes black and white army that we sang against Sutton? We need that to get going again. And I'm not idiotic enough to suggest that all we need to do to win,but it should transcend to the team. I want us to just give of us all for 90 minutes,on and off the pitch

I agree. Today he made a big difference and actually retained the ball and made it work for us. DC said that we are a better team when we are passing the ball and retaining possession. If that is the case, which it clearly is, wanted Jake in the team.
