Vale fan in pieces!
Question. What the hell has happened to your lot? Came to the Bescot last March. I remarked on your forum after the 2-2 draw that Walsall’s second half performance was easily the best I’d seen in League 2 for a number of years. You absolutely battered us for most of that half. Your team was full of guile, pace and attacking intent.
Now I’m aware that you’ve sold your chief striker a few weeks ago but he was far from the best player against us so what’s happened to the rest?!
Don’t give up hope. When DC came to us we were absolutely dog ■■■■■. I was absolutely in pieces. Just couldn’t see a way out. Couldn’t win, couldn’t score. Players were low on confidence. Sound familiar?
DC sorted the defence and suddenly stopped conceding as many soft goals to the detriment of attacking intent. Since then we have had 3 of our best players back and this has meant a resultant marked increase in quality and thus 3 wins on the bounce. We had previously won 3 in 24 I think. So IT CAN CHANGE!
For what its worth I think Vale are safe on 44 points. You have a game in hand on us on 41. I only believe you need another 3 or 4 points for safety. The good thing for you is that it seems Grimsby are gone so you have yourselves, Barrow, Colchester and Sarfend battling to avoid the second from bottom slot.
I hope you stay up. I have long forgiven you for toying with us in the Buckley years of the 70s. How you could do with his ilk or the likes of Nicky Cross now! Proper footballers they were!
Anyway, I’m sure I’ll be at your place next season with the other knuckledragging clayheads! The DC saga should add much needed zest!
Good luck and see you next season. Gordon to be in a Vale shirt?
