Match Thread: POS2 Port Vale v Swindon Town


Recommended Posts

Advert:


I think the arrogance of Swindle beggars belief.

Sticking out fans in an uncovered shitehole of a stadium with broken seats and 10 portaloos. Is this acceptable? No 

Then there's the after match interviews. Again...full of arrogance. 

Swindle think they've beaten us already.

However I look forward to their millions of fans travelling on a Thursday night. And the one turnstile open. And the one kiosk. And the one set of toilets. 

On the pitch? We need to give everything as it's the last home game of the season.

Off the pitch? Irrespective of the team selection we also need to give everything as it's the last home game of the season.

We're still in the tie and there's no reason why we can't win

It’s going to be a tense evening on Thursday but the clues on winning this tie were there for us in the last half an hour today. When we put it on them a bit they didn’t look comfortable so everyone fans, players, management from the first whistle need to be getting stuck into them, make it as hostile as possible.

Don’t get drawn into the McKirdy sideshow. Best way to get one over on him is to end his season on Thursday. It’s there for us to do it.

We should have brought someone, who we can afford to have suspended and told them to make sure Mckirdy isnt fit for the second leg.

As Nobby Stiles said when asked by the manager to take out Charlie Cooke,

’How long for’

Hopefully being behind will work in our favour and we will be on the front foot from the off. We need that early goal to put the tie level and hopefully we can get the job done with the crowd behind us and we can keep the back door shut. One stat that dosnt make good reading though is that we have only managed 2 home wins against teams in the top 11 this season, that was mansfield and sutton and Swindons away record is fantastic. We do though tend have more success against teams who come to attack like mansfield so reasons to stay positive and hoping for a 3-1 vale win.

Will we sell out all our tickets.?

Prob not sounds like some people on this forum have already given up hope and jacked it off as a bad job. All we can do as supporters is to stay as positive as possible and get behind them on Tuesday and hopefully that transends to the players. The problem is we have lost 4 out the last 5 the supporters have been fantastic but it hasn't galvanised our players and if anything had the opposite effect as if they are playing with fear.

I can see DC going

                                                  Stone

                        Gibbo               Smith             Hall

Wozza            Garrity                                     Pett       Mal

                                                Taylor             

                       Edmonson                             Wilson

Hope Proctor can use the next couple days to recover and continue to take care of his hip. Beside Kian Harrart and Ryan Edmondson and other loans, is Nathan Smith the only other player to not miss a game this season due to injury/COVID?

2-1 and we do it in extra time. Fifth minute of the first half, Swindon are shooting towards the Hamil Road end, soft indirect free kick... Swindon player breezes through our defenders who haven't woken up yet, passes it to the back post for a soft tap in. Vale do nothing for the rest of the half. Some people boo them off.

45 - 55th minutes, Vale come flying out of the blocks and get nowhere. And this time...for once... we don't concede a soft goal on the counter attack. Score in the 70th minute... fans behind the team... score in the 83rd minute. Shell shocked Swindon play like a pub team and we score two more in extra time 

There. Script written

Wonder if sky will have a more favourable pundits toward the Vale , went the match yesterday and seeing some of the post match coverage it was very biased towards Swindon!!

Dont know but did they discuss the McKirdy dive or just bang on about why Vale let him go ?

Didn't really talk about any of their diving.

As Darrell Clarke said, win our home game and we have a chance, whether that’s in 90 mins or 120 mins. It’s that simple. Nothing has really changed I guess, we were always going to need to win one of the games. 

I do think that either Northampton or Vale will turn around their deficit and end up going through.
