How are your team doing?

Others may well disagree however I’m comfortable with where we are. I didn’t expect us to do quite so well to begin with. However… our form has definitely dropped of late.

Where you think you will finish in terms of league position?

Low/mid table would be fine.

Who should we watch out for?

When on form – in defence, Cameron. Clarke offers an excellent reading of the game even if the pace isn’t there. Hussey is possibly one of the best defenders in this league. Midfield – when fit, Tutte, Etuhu going forward and Mayor. Strikers – Clark is our big target man; ex-Championship and usually a class act. Pope was a good signing from your good selves, he’s a hard worker.

What are your thoughts on your manager?

His interviews are mesmerizing regarding his use of the English language but he’s an ambitious, hard-working guy who expects a great deal from his players.

What are your thoughts on your board?

I can’t complain on field even with our current dip. Off-field – some things need to be improved however there have also been some excellent initiatives. As with many so called ‘satellite’ clubs we struggle to get support, but it has rightly improved over the last couple of seasons.

Any views on the current Port Vale team?

I watched the first half of your match at Walsall earlier on today. You looked pretty decent going forward, a pity about the result. In my view, we’ll have our work cut out when we play you.

Any views or memories of players that have been involved with both teams?

I’m very impressed with Pope. He almost always looks a threat and has an excellent work rate and attitude.

A score prediction?

If we pick up form I’d expect us to get a win, 1 – 0 (Clark) I like to be an optimist!
