Just hope tomorrow the boys give it everything after what’s been a tragic week for the club, first the loss of Charlie Holland in his 50s, huge fan, did loads for the club volunteering etc, ran fun buses and charity work. Huge loss.

Then the following day to lose another part of the family in former winger Jinking John Jeffers in his 50s also. Exciting winger in the early 90s who began the great era of Vale wingers like Guppy, Ainsworth, McCarthy in the glory days.

Hopefully that and the total shit show throwing away what should of been a routine three points in the second half at their place will see us want to put some effort in and ease the pains of the three events.

Hopefully Wozza will be back, sounds like he should be in contention although maybe rest him for Scunthorpe if not 100%.

The whole league underwhelms.......its shite
Your team are in the right place then.

No predictions for Rovers v notlob, we were comfortable winners in Horwich, if we play like that again or the midweek game with FGR, we should win, but if the Tranmere of Stevenage/Barrow games rock up it could get nasty.

I remember John Jeffers causing teams no end of problems down the left flank like it was yesterday. A player Tranmere were briefly linked with before his move to Vale.
52 no age to die in this day and age.
RIP John.

Very much see us coming away with a result in Prenton ...Wanderers v the skiprats
Gone with a four at the back...Lee missing will be a big loss
I like Vaughan keep him quiet and we will win.
Change at home and get off the coach and run down the tunnel score 4,run back up the tunnel jump on the bus
Get out of the place

Speak for yourself
very much so
we started playing in 1874......in that time thousands of players have pulled on that famous white shirt,but as a squad this is the worst squad ever assembled. Our position dictates that. Yet you could not beat us with a three goal start
How shite must you be !!!

Worst ever Bolton squad maybe, but far from the worst team I've seen in almost a decade that we've been here.

A team made up of waives and strays. We have not paid a transfer fee for three years due to having a transfer embargo.
Next season though....
Doyle and Sarcevic will again be classed as 68k salaries. We have Politic to return who has been a big loss
who will be a under 21 player add thomason another stand out youngster. Kieran Lee signed up and we have the core of a decent team next season.....Evatt is now going down the route of assembling proven players and not chancers and dross that we have signed these last three seasons.

Nobody down here pays transfer fees (apart from Salford and the occasional nominal fee) welcome to the basement.

Well we've got a hardly fit Ryan Loft up front on his own today. He's shocking at the best of times, nevermind when he's not fully fit.

1-0 Grimsby, a goal in about the 26th minute which will cause our team to fold as always and the game will just peter out

Our game passed an 11am inspection, pitch all cleared and now apparently it’s snowing again!

Finally given up then?
Not totally but near that point. Changed shape look very solid but we have had bad luck with injuries and to be quite honest some of our replacements are just not up to it.
Evatt has got 6/7 decent players to build next seasons team around but he puts pressure on himself with saying we are in for a player who will turn heads in this window.
No doubt since Phoenix departure our calibre of signings improved

Green starts again but at least he's in a two with Hamez. No JT on the commentary that's shite. We had to listen to half of the game at BP with Scunny commentary.

If anyone else dares to say they’re the worst team in the league then they are a fuckin idiot.

What the hell I didn't expect that. I've seen some shocking performances this season but I think Grimsby's first half might be the worst I've seen so far. Should have been 3 if it wasn't for a good save. The Grimsby team really seem to be getting frustrated, the kick out at Beestin showed that.

I can't imagine they'll come out in the 2nd half like that though, we just need to keep playing like we are and hold on.

Second goal we've seen that so many times. Have commented a few times on how when a ball drops in our box chaos ensues. It's multiple times every single game.
