I don't care as long as we get 6 points in the next two games!

I can't believe we lost our last 3 games against Crewe, that's depressing.

Should have had 6 points from the last two, we have one. Must, must win on Saturday if we want a stab at the playoffs.

Crossing was mostly woeful, many wasted opportunities. JCR continues to surpass early season expectations. Looked a bit knackered towards the end so the sub wasn't a surprise, but he was definitely worth his start.

A point is a point, at least we didn't lose. I thought we played well but just didn't have any cutting edge up top to win us the game. Had the chance with Revs but couldn't convert. Its another clean sheet and has got us a result on the board after back to back defeats.

Our strike partners take the blame for that.

Guthrie on Saturday, Revell today. Scoring goals is a huge issue this season.

We played well first half, nice football, created half chances a plenty, quite enjoyed it.

Second half we totally ran out of ideas and had nobody with any attacking threat to bring off the bench. Why have we had so many players get injured/disappear from matchday squads this squad? Are they being overworked in training like we always had when Dino was assistant?

Both today. Revell's was the worst miss after rounding the keeper, but Guthrie had already failed to score a header from a yard out by that point which should be put away more often than not...

Hard work alone, whilst commendable, doesn't make for a good forward. I'm not sure he is the answer for us, but maybe we just need to find someone more suited to play alongside him.

I'd play 5 in midfield with Revell up front on his own, holding the ball (to feet) up and bringing others into play. Four in midfield isn't working - even though Timlin and Byrom are very good (in my opinion) they have nobody to support them thus allowing them to get forward. They also seem to be overrun when the opposition is in possession as the two wide players don't support them in a defensive context. Putting Ball behind them would allow greater support and give them the ability to go forward with gay abandon. I'd sacrifice Guthrie to make this happen. Literally. Also, for a team that was playing two wingers and two (supposedly) overlapping full backs, we weren't getting anywhere near enough crosses into the box and when we did (as Wasp points out) they weren't very good crosses.

So, it comes down to the system. The traditional 4-4-2 ain't working, in the same way that the early season experiment with 4-3-3 didn't work, so let's give it the old 4-5-1 (4-1-4-1?).

There you go, I've fixed it again. Happy to take a job on the staff Dino.

Agree, and I would have spent some dough on Labadie. Not the most popular man in Stevo but he ran Newports midfield last season. Or a Parrett-type. Someone that'll go box to box.

The most likely contender for that last night was Luke Wilkinson.

The problem is, as ever, we don't have natural wide players.

Kennedy and Sonupe are too attacking and provide no cover to our FBs, whilst Kennedy always drifts inside too much as well. Ball is better suited in the middle, Guthrie is a striker.

I'd add to that, for the worst parts of last night's game the forward looking players weren't showing much movement at all.

A lot of times a defender or a deep-lying midfielder got the ball with time, looked up for options and just saw 5/6 players standing still or moving slowly whilst closely marked. We needed some more commitment to runs to create passing options rather than just hitting it into areas and trying to pick up the scraps.

Agree with that. Most of the time both Revs and Guthrie were reactive chasing balls into the corner, rather than giving the midfielders a running option. At least once, I heard Byrom shout ‘f*cking gamble’ to either one of them.

Aye, but it's not just the runs down the channels I'm talking about. There's very little movement shown by players to move into space to receive a simple ball to feet.

Far too early to be saying about our play off hopes will not happen if we fail to win Saturday. You may as well say if we don't win Saturday then it's time to change the manager but so far we are doing alright however it's the lack of goals we score that could catch up with us in the end.

Talk of play offs is complete fantasy. This side is incapable of winning three matches in a row. Unlucky and robbed last Saturday we had good possession tonight, most players put in a workmanlike shift and defence/midfield looked fairly ok. But to win matches you have to score and to score you have to shoot. Many times players had a chance to do so but didn't seemingly coached to keep possession. Nothing wrong with possession if you do something with it - we didn't. With the wind in the second half you would have thought someone would have had the nouse to ping a couple of long range efforts at the very least.

Our non existent attack seem unwilling to have any kind of attempt on goal other than a header. And why is that headless chicken Revell in the side, why is he playing at all and above all why is he captain? A far better leader would be Cuthbert (immense tonight). At least Scott leads by example. Revell, a poor centre forward, is not now even winning many headers. Campbell-Rice won more than him tonight and did ok but again wouldn't shoot. If you do have a go then you might even get a deflection to wrong foot the keeper. Another one who had very little to do.
For effort 7 out of 10 but the fact remains that Port Vale had more goal attempts than us.

I was hoping for at least 7 points from the current three games - can't see more than 2 now. Very very frustrating.

Revell shouldn’t be called into question. He’s very good with his work rate, especially considering his age. I don’t think having him and Guthrie together works though. Revs isn’t a natural finisher perhaps but he does have purple patches in front of goal. Ideally we’d have Newton alongside him each game (or bad boy Kenners), someone who can feed off of him. Certainly not a “poor centre forward,” maybe an off night perhaps.

Cuthbert is a natural leader and will do so with the armband on or not.

A little bit of a slump in the last two games. Needs to be nipped in the bud quickly. I like this group of players, they’re better than these last two performances.

Revell reminds me of Beardsley,he works his arse off tries his best with passion and determination but doesnt score many goals again same as Beardsley and deserves to be starting games but I'd rather have Newton up front with him.

I can get the frustration from people but it's early days yet and there is time for improvement on the lack of goals being scored. We've improved on our defence which is a massive step forward compared to last season and if we were putting every chance we have in the goal that you would expect us to score we would be a lot higher up, but I trust Dino and his assistants to get this sorted. It's so obvious this team has potential to get something good out of this season but at the moment it's just not quite clicking.

Yep JCR was decent. Defenders struggled against him, put in some decent balls and got into some good positions when he came inside....the pitch

Frustratingly seemed to be reluctant to shoot or attempt a killer ball and would always go back to Timlin or Byrom once then opportunity closed.

JCR was very poor. Constantly did a load of tricks, cutting inside and facing up against two defenders then having beat one always ran into more trouble before losing possession or making a backward pass because he didn't release it early enough. When he did get a crossing, they were largely overhit.

Not impressed at all.

After a positive first half I was quite upbeat...Second half we offered nothing threatening in the final third.

Cuthbert managed Pope very well.

Guthrie needs 3 chances to force a save.

Seddon had the brakes on and kept stopping on the halfway line first half and playing it infield. Second half got forward a bit more.

Revell, even ignoring his epic open goal miss looks to have forgotten where the goal is.

I'd have stuck Sonupé central for Revell earlier.

Edit: thought the ref had a really great game. Pleasant change.

Sonupe still a player to use off the bench for me. Some attacking pace late on to use against tired legs.

I think he last few minutes when he was knackered and held onto the ball too long have stuck in your mind too much. I'd have subbed him earlier than Dino did, but I thought his first half contribution was decent and he merited his start.

I actually thought JCR had an alright game. Compared to some in the team had a better game than others, I thought there were some decent balls put into the box and could've been converted. He did give it away at times but I can name 4 players that gave the ball away more than JCR did. I think collectively we just lacked cutting edge, we probably missed Newts up there.

Only thing that annoyed me about his game was that Seddon made the overlapping runs and was largely ignored as he kept coming inside trying to beat players when the pass was on and ended up going sideways or backwards.

Agreed. I remember two attacks where Seddon was ignored and if put through would've slotted across the box for someone to tap in.

Agreed,

There was a thread I think last month and strangely It seemed like some had already made their mind up about JCR before he'd even played a competitive minute.

There's a reason he's played at a higher standard than everyone else in our squad.

I thought he played quite well. Considering it's only his second or third game back, JCR could be a decent creative player down the left.

The only problem last night was in the final third. I know we probably didn’t have any other options due to injuries but Revs and Guthrie are too similar. They weren’t reading or judging the flick-ons from each other right and were too far apart as a forward pair. It’s where we do miss a player like Newton, and I’d prefer to see him up top with either of the other two. At the minute I’d go with Guthrie as Revs seems to be struggling despite all his hard work.

Defensively we were strong, keeping Pope looking for scraps. Byrom and Timlin were busy in midfield and looking for the quick passes. And I thought JCR was looking creative, but maybe trying too hard sometimes.

Exactly - perhaps Dino should give them a bit more freedom to express themselves, gamble and try one or two things.

Whilst that could back fire at times they now seem almost over coached to the extent they daren't try anything different.

Does anyone know what happened to Kennedy on Sat and why - apparently he got a bollocking from Dino when he was substituted. Was it tactical because of the 10 men? They will probably say he was injured!

He's said it was fairly obvious what happened Saturday.

I don't think Dino was the first to throw the stone Saturday. Layth pushed for more. But didn't get it. I tried to get it from one or two players tonight. Dino has them well drilled. Zipped

First half agree, played well but the run out of ideas second half, neither Timlin or Byrom break past their midfield pairing like Parrett used to so we end up playing sideways football which then fizzles out.

Can't remember a shot on target, 2 gifted guilt edge chances we missed horribly.

Tbf PV didn't come to win at all

A good point. We looked to be getting on top towards the end of the first half and we went in having forced the harder saves/created the better chances.

Second half we played as though we were 3-0 up, no-one making runs to give options and just playing parallel horizontal the pitch. Port Vale created all the better chances up til the last 10 minutes when we stepped up our game and finally went for the win. That's disappointing as a home team against a lower positioned opposition.

Perhaps the worst performance I've seen from a Boro' side in ages, when you consider how average the opposition were. We hoofballed out of defence and lumped it down the flanks. Oh and those who took a pop at Revell , at least he broke into a sweat which is more than can be said for Guthrie whose contribution was close to the scoreline.
Not the remotest chance of making the play-off's with the squad we have right now and having listened to Dino's post match interview I think we were watching a different match.

The lack of width was very frustrating. JCR was very central, going around in circles and Sonupe might as well just not bothered because he was awful!

Ball made a difference but it wasn't enough. I though Timlin had a good game again and Byrom did alright but the too wingers offered no width, which means no service for Revell and Guthrie...

Dino is always very positive. I sometimes have to take off a percentage of what he says to get to what I saw, I haven't heard his comments last night as I was talking to Liams Smyths parents, who were very proud.

But we wouldn't have scored till the proverbial midnight last night.

Lost 6-2 to Lincoln, but that was a few games ago now.

And I wouldn't say they shut up shop by any means, many sides have come to us and been far more defensive than they were, they just defended well.

Aye, we usually view things mostly the same with him exaggerating how I viewed it, and on occasion see things very differently (such as playing Farman ahead of Dieng or Guthrie wide left), but the clip the club tweeted last night of his interview (about a min and a half long) was exactly how I saw it last night.

Easy to forget how decent some of the first half was after a second half where we completely ran out of ideas and had no options off the bench to change it, but I saw a lot of good in the opening 45. Had Revell scored we see that out and win, same as if Guthrie scored one of his numerous chances before Crewe scored on Saturday. Suddenly we have another five points, sit in fifth and everything is rosy.
