Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says that he will go through the second half of our performance against Port Vale with his players to learn some valuable lessons, but he will quickly be focussing on our cup tie against Manchester City youngsters on Tuesday night.
The Crewe boss was disappointed that we could not emulate our relative success of the first half with another positive showing in the second period and he was annoyed that we didn’t try and play our football against Neil Aspin’s side.
A headed winner from Vale defender Leon legge gave Vale all three points from Gresty Road.
David told crewealex.net: “It affects your weekend. I got back in on Saturday night at about 9.30pm and after saying hello to the family, I watched the game back.
“I got up at 5am on Sunday, took the dog for a walk, had some lunch, took my daughter swimming and then watched the game again. That was my weekend.
“I’ve watched the game three times and I will go through the points with the players from the second half. The message will be fairly simple, at this club, we want to play football. They know that whacking it and taking the easy option is not acceptable here.
“We will go through it and get it out of the system quickly. We will point out what we need to and draw a line in the sand. It will be done and dusted today. We will learn what we need to and go out and practice what we should be doing.
“We will put it bed quickly and move on.”
