A Vale fan's views ahead of the game

A Vale fan's views ahead of the game


Ahead of Saturday's trip to Vale Park, Vital Port Vale editor Tom answers a few questions for us.


What were the Vale fans' expectations before the season started?

I'd say an expectation of a top 7 finish at least. After the start we made, automatic promotion was looking a real possibility but performances have gone off the boil somewhat since then.


What's the feeling now?

Well, despite the iffy spell, we are still sitting in second place so things are still on track.


Are the fans pleased with the progress you've made under Micky Adams?

Absolutely. Adams inherited a shambles, but has slowly turned things around. We just missed out on the playoffs last season which would have been a miracle given how bad we were, and things have improved since.


Vale won all five of their league games in September, but have only won one of their last seven. What changed?

Basically our inability to score. We have had four 0-0 draws in the last five league games. Justin Richards has gone off the boil and had he converted a couple of the easy chances he's had then we would be top.


How would you describe your team's style of play?

It would be fair to say we are very hard working and organised. Occasionally we are a little too direct but we have played some excellent football this season.


Where are you strongest - defence, midfield or attack?

Our defensive record has been outstanding so far, the best in the division. Stuart Tomlinson in goal has made a big difference and there are rumoured to be a number of clubs watching him, though the work ethic of the entire side makes things easier for him.


Who has been your best player so far?

Hard to pick out one player. All of the defence have been consistent; Gary Roberts in midfield has provided the creativity and the two Richards up front are a big threat.


Of all the teams you've played so far, who has impressed you the most?

I don't think there is too much difference between lots of the sides. Chesterfield looked quite decent during the second half, and they have a lot of goals in their side.


What do you expect to see from Wycombe on Saturday?

You look quite an attacking side, even the midfield. Gary Waddock had Aldershot playing some good stuff so I would expect the same from Wycombe.


Take a wild guess at the final score

We got back to winning ways against Dartford in the cup this week so hopefully we can nick a 2-1 win.


Thanks Tom.
