Is anyone bothered?
Hope Dodds gets a good reception, not so AJ goal machine Leitch-Smith, and McGivern well lets hope he plays in defence for them.
Given our horrific away form i,ll plump for an optimistic 1-1 draw with one of the worst ever away supports of maybe 650 bothering to put the apathy to one side.

Must win, anything less and certainly with cup failure next week and Smurf will have some big decisions to make. Worry is with so many key players missing we might struggle again.

Big Reg and Jones together in a 4-4-2 please Bruno!

Nonsense your lot talking about must win, have you seen the table? Its November, mid table and its must win, makes no sense.

I think we'll probably go down anyway but I want it to be with a fight, I.e the way we beat Oxford in the last home game.

2-1.

Poor form, fans losing patience got key men missing today (Grant, Foley, Thomas, Purkiss and Forrester) but one point from Oldham and Shrewsbury after recent form will see Bruno under massive pressure.

Poor line up with one up top and no Big Reg. One of the youngest starting XI we have ever fielded due to the injuries and suspension to Grant.

Can't see anything other than a beating again.

First time in about two months we are still in a game at half time away from home!

Not bad considering six of our best players are out and Bruno has had another bollock up team selection with two left backs on the pitch neither of whom are playing at left back!

Get Reg on!

Crap result but better than expected in the circumstances. Hopefully at least get Thomas back in two weeks.

Sounds like I didn't miss anything.

Better than the 0-0 a few seasons back apparently at their gaffe which was one of the worst games I've ever seen!

That's ok as I am sure we will be able to attract some world class manager to come in to our mid-table L1 club

Why are Vale fans not happy with the manager when they are only a few points off the top 6? Why are the expectations so high at VP?

1 league win in 9...

Turgid, negative football... started well but the one up front doesn't work for us and he persists. Crowds down to 3000 Tuesday, lowest since 2008 when we were adrift at the bottom.

Playing negative against the worst side in the division... leaving Big Reg out when he's changed the game Tuesday, played two left backs yesterday (one on either wing!) and a centre half at left back...

Changing the team by three or four players every week. (No settled side)

We've been awful for two months now, making the same mistakes week in week out despite the tactics not working or suiting us.

Got some real quality in our squad (granted most of it is injured or banned) but he's taking us down the league fast.

Possibly one of the worst games i have ever seen. Looked like 2 sides doomed to League 2 but luckily we have a few points in the bag. Shrewsbury were truly woeful and reading Hurst comments it appears he set up to be hard to beat after recent results.
As for us i don,t know what we set out for, the formation was baffling and frustrating.
Dreadful

Our only positive is a) we have 5 or 6 top players to come back
b) Looks like 'Plan B' will be implemented and are over half way to safety so should rescue us if Smurf utilises it properly.
