Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

Yeah Dixon I think is just about passable and not our biggest worry at the moment, but I'd only want him to be a back-up from next season.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

I think you can make an effective case for replacing every position barring Dapo (whose head has dropped), MJ, and John and Jones (assuming he is near fitness). The players in the team at the moment are just not good enough. I think that's a bit dramatic. I'd say most of our players have shown they...

Re: Loan Watch

So Edwards and Senior can, and I presume will, be recalled today?

If that's the case then both will be in the squad for Saturday, and there must be a good chance Senior goes straight into the starting lineup.

Re: Take your Mac to Fleetwood. Away 07-12-21. 7-45.

There've been too many of these performances now. We need practically everything to go in our favour to win. It speaks volumes that since August we've only beaten one club that wasn't in the relegation zone at the time we played them and the one club that wasn't was fifth bottom. Maybe that's where...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

We need to sign at least one more proper centre forward in Jan. I don't disagree that we have problems all over the pitch, but Doyle looks to be in rapid decline, and just isn't finishing efficiently enough to merit being a guaranteed starter. There have been too many games, including last night, w...

Re: Loan Watch

I don't really buy his stance, to be honest. I think Evatt/the club are probably pissed off he's not signed a contract extension after we've done all his rehab, and he's now been told he's free to leave. Shame.

Re: Take your Mac to Fleetwood. Away 07-12-21. 7-45.

Right, not many options available to us, of course, this evening. I presume we'll be going three at the back again. Dixon Aimson Santos Johnston Gordon John Lee Thomason Kachunga Doyle Dapo Does that look right? I think away from home there is a risk that midfield gets overrun. However, we can chan...

Re: Loan Watch

Given we can only recall him in January, it might not make sense for Evatt to be talking that prospect up right now. If Vale knew they were going to lose him shortly then perhaps they’d be disincentivised from giving him game time.

Re: Loan Watch

Interesting perhaps that Ilesy has sloshed the cold water of personal opinion on the possibility Politic returning. https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/19763268.bolton-wanderers-recall-dennis-politic-port-vale-january/ A thought from me. We won’t sign five on New Year’s Day. What we could do is b...

Re: Loan Watch

Apparently Dennis had picked up another minor injury in recent weeks, so is still not at 100% fitness. The Vale fans seem desperate to sign him permanently, and they’re aiming to be a League One side next season. When it comes to January we have to remember that it will cost us nothing to bring Poli...

Re: Loan Watch

Obviously we shouldn’t give him whatever he wants, but it’d be a kick in the bollocks if we lost him for nowt. Anyway, I think we should bring him back in Jan for sure.

Not entirely relevant, but neither Xavi or Iniesta were giants in height (certainly in football). Five feet seven/eight at most.
They are two of the best players of all time. Not sure we've got many Xavis or Iniestas lurking in our academy...

Re: Sprats v Mackerels..V Fleetwood at home. 31-11-21. 7 O'clock

Yeah that was one of our worst matches of the season. In a way I hope it was down to lack of motivation rather than fatigue, but regardless, we have offered Fleetwood significant encouragement ahead of next week. Anyway, nice to be in the draw for round 3, which I think will still be regionalised? F...

Re: Sprats v Mackerels..V Fleetwood at home. 31-11-21. 7 O'clock

We have been shite most of this game. I suspect we’ve not wanted to over-exert ourselves, but Fleetwood would be right to feel hard done by if we hold on.

Re: Sprats v Mackerels..V Fleetwood at home. 31-11-21. 7 O'clock

Difficult to say what we should do for this one. On the one hand it would be nice to progress in this cup, but at the same time we can't risk injuries to any more players. We perhaps don't even have enough available to really rotate the team anyway. Are Fleetwood likely to rest some given they're c...
