To the pub.

Not sure where to start, an absolutely disgraceful performance, gross treatment of the fans by the stewards as well.

Hooper was a flipping joke, as was his other Port Vale counterpart. Not even sure where to start with everybody else, a circus from front to back.

Sam Jones sending off confirms to me that something is wrong with the lad. Apart from his goal on opening day he has not looked right through pre-season and now in league games. Body language not right.

If last week's criticism of the team was harsh they deserve everything coming their way after a performance devoid of guile, tactical nous, and I'm afraid to say effort in too many individuals to single out. The first half was truly shocking. The only tactic seemed to be to whack it up field to the smallest man on the pitch-Dembele. Hooper was statuesque. I don't recall him jumping once or for that matter moving either with or without the ball. Far too many passes were played square across the back or backwards.
Town may have had a shout for the fumbled Summerfield free kick having crossed the line. It will be interesting to see that later.
Second half saw a bit of an improvement with Bolly and Cardwell at least trying to stretch their defence. Dembele fizzed one wide from a really difficult angle as Town got on top. Somehow the lino missed a blatant hand ball for a nailed on penalty and within a couple of minutes Town were down to 10 after  Jones was seen by the same temporarily blinded earlier lino apparently commiting GBH on a defender for a straight red. Game over then with a third conceded and a Collins back header as compensation. Loads of very unhappy Mariners. Those critical of Slade's appointment gaining momentum.
No-one really shone for Town although Macca made a good save or two and Bolarinwa caused problems with direct running. Stevenage weren't great but miles better than us.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Being played on the wing doesn't help the lad ..

He isn't a winger but that doesn't excuse his red card today.

He's supposed to be a goalscorer but the position Slade plays him means he wont get many chances. If his place in the team depends on his goals he will soon be dropped

Is it just me or has Slade turned ultra negative since his first stint with us ?

I know he liked the long ball before but he plays 4-5-1 now and I'm sure he played with two strikers before and pacy wingers..

Jesus his past managerial jobs have scarred him for life as he now plays 1 striker and no wingers.

Stevenage where by no means a top 7 side but we stood off them and let them play, Stevenage are a competent team and took the freedom of the pitch we gave them with both hands. Summerfield should not be anywhere near the first team after backing off and turning his back for the Stevenage player to hit a quality but ultimately a free shot.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.
