HUGE WIN. I’m praying that result is finally the turning point on such a tough tough year at the football club. Over the moon for Revs and the players.
Big positive for me.... both strikers scored. Looks like we might have quite a decent partnership with Oteh and Newts. Something we didn’t have last season.
Pleased with the win. Let’s not get carried away on the Newton and Oteh are the second coming of Cole and Yorke just yet though.
Hope this is a massive boost for us and in a month or so we are looking back at it as a turning point.
With the way the season is set, with games twice a week the gaffer is going to have to rotate. Same as every club.
Older players will need resting.
Players will pick up more injuries.
The 5 subs rule will be used to try and avoid wear and tear
All will impact on how settled it can be.
Second all of that
Seemed a better balance
makes so much difference when we can hold the ball up by strikers
Well done Revs
I called for change, but credit where credits due, when deserved
Biggest thing for me was the high press, we'd stopped doing that, tonight it was back and it made a big difference to our game.
We'll played, happy for once on a Tuesday :-)
He did keep Newts and Oteh on a bit longer than he should have. About 10 mins too long. This allowed Vale to punish us. But in the end it didn't matter.
