We aren't getting the ball into the old mixing pot enough for my liking, our corners are poor and we should have someone able to chuck it into the middle of the fracas. Not pretty but basic stuff with a chance of results at the end.

Legge had a good game for them today, if it wasn't for the wind he'd come out man of the match on a winning team,

He'll have to change his pre-match meal from beans to pasta.

Surprised your watching, your bird got a puncture?

Happy days with the win and fair play all involved.  Other clubs now realise a shit and narrower pitch won't suit us.  Hopefully our groundsman has been told as it hasn't been the best recently.  

Elbouzedi looked more of a team player than Maddison .Didn't give the ball away showboating .Game management excellent.

I thought the PV build up play was pretty good.

Something from the pre match build up... "respect everyone"

Switching off now 

They went 90 minutes without creating a real chance. The idea the weather stopped Legge being man of the match was I assume a joke ?

Wind and pitch didn't help either side but they've regressed a long way since that game at ours. Yes we were abysmal defensively that day but they did look a decent side who could play a bit. Today they looked about the worst side we've played all season

Agreed.  They looked League One level in that 6-3 game, offensively at least.  Today they looked like national league.

We were no better than PV today even though they were poor. Agree that the conditions didn’t help but we were far from our best. The points are all that counts and for automatic we need 11 cup finals of quality football which we are capable of

Not a lot to argue with there imo, but although quality football would be nice in the last 11 games, it's not essential (as we've seen today) we just need points.

You've got to be sharp in the pedant game 😀

I didn't feel pedantic.  More educational.

Ive just watched the game and I disagree with that. First half they tried to upset our rhythm and we couldn’t get settled, but they couldn’t keep up the pressure all game , we kept the ball much better than them, and limited their chances. Won’t always be pretty but overall I thought we played good. They offered absolutely nothing.

I'm not actually sure of the point you're making by quoting me.

I like the fact we have Easter with 2 close games and the week of Salford but  other than that, we have a week between games now. No excuse for carrying niggles and being tired

FGR play the Tuesday before we play them too.

Not sure why people find it necessary to 'downgrade' our performance every week. We were the better team without playing anywhere near our potential. As you say they tried to disrupt us but as they ran out of steam we got more and more on top. 62% possession although we did not create much tells the story. 
Another 11 on the run like that will do nicely.

Roll is Hugh Mungus Lite. Doesnt like Evatt you can tell and wanted Doyle dropped IIRC.

We were no better than Port Vale yesterday? Well thats your opinion, we certainly werent at our best but I must have missed Vale putting 25 passes together for their goal.

This.

Yesterday was poor compared to Bradford last week. Horrible to watch. 

But we won.

The important bit and the only bit which will go on records and statistics.

Terrible pitch, swirling wind & a team that set out for a draw at home. It wasn't pretty but it was clinical & efficient. Even the massive don't play their best every week on snooker table pitches ffs! 

          Job done, 3pts nearer to promotion, we move on.... Some people are never happy, I'd put money some of them were moaning when we were top 8 Prem regulars with our galacticos..

I remember leaving the Reebok and a bloke leaping from his seat shouting this is shit Allardyce fuck off, I think we were 5th in the prem made me smile then and still does.

The pitch and the conditions were the two major factors which stopped us playing the way we wanted. It was heavy, bumpy and narrow which stopped us moving the ball quickly and also finding the space. It claimed 3 players and apparently Vale have suffered numerous other muscle injuries this season which they put down to the pitch. We did enough to get through and not lose anyone else. Trying to run, turn sharply and find the positions we normally would on that was incredibly difficult, everyone commented our players looked leggy, but I think most teams would on that bog. The width of the pitch also allowed vale to really close us down, and we didn't get our passing range sorted for most of the game. Second half they switched wingers and found more joy, but also realised that far right corner was the best part of the pitch, so we concentrated our play more into that area and got the most joy. 

Vale set up to not concede, but they never really looked to try and push us, they may have had more joy against us if they did as we did struggle. But we were still very clearly the better team on the ball and when we did get it moving looked more threatening.  But again it is game management which we need if we want to over come our poor start. A few people would be screaming for Evatts head if we lost a few more players on that pitch, saying he can't read the conditions and risked the players trying to play something that wasn't possible. 

 

Do I want to watch games like that every week? No, will I? No. But some people really can't seem to realise that it won't always be possible,  and just love to find fault to criticise the manager and/or certain players when the conditions play a huge part in ruining the game.

 

The fact we have teams narrowing their pitches is also a huge compliment and shows we have the upper hand from the start and teams are fearing playing us.

I may be wrong but I'm sure that teams can't change the dimensions of their pitch once the season has started, therefore if PV have a narrow pitch then its been narrow all season.

Yes, I thought that as well.🤷‍♂️
