  1. Evening All, long time reader, first time contributor. Want to say a big thank you firstly to all of you lot for keeping me informed, entertained and something resembling sane regarding all things Vale over the past few 'trying' years, and for all that many of you did in helping get rid of N**m. Anyway, it's so good to be able to make my first post after a game like that. Thought in all honesty that it was a fairly even game in most respects, the difference being they missed their chances whilst we had two wonderfully executed goals, but we do look like such a well-drilled, organised squ

  2. I am loving that these friendly matches are on Youtube. It's grate for me as I am blind that they have Phil Bowers doing the commentary. I just cant wate to get back down VP with my kids as soon as we can. My little girl keeps asking me when we can go again. I hope it is more about the games and not the sweets and pies she makes me get her lol.

  4. I for one think Askey did absolutely the right thing with the team last night. The League Cup has never been kind to us and we’ve had two difficult away draws, plus what’s the point of having a plum tie against Everton when you can’t go and see it?? Last year we had a good 11, this year we’ve got a strong 22+ and all of those players will want game time otherwise there will be some discontent which we don’t want. That is the trade off. Last night was arguably the least important game of the season for me but one where we’ve seen a battling generally performance against strong o

  5. What a nasty piece of work you are. You do realise he is human and people can get things wrong? How do you know he’s stealing a living? He’s got a vast amount of knowledge about not only Vale but football in general. Totally unnecessary to abuse him, get a grip.

  6. Better goalkeeper ? Tick Cover at left back? Tick Goalscoring striker? Tick Replacement winger for Browne? Tick Better squad depth than last season? Tick On paper one of our most well rounded transfer windows in recent years. Time will tell if JA has it right, but I think they have pulled a blinder!

  8. Some of the comments in this thread are staggering. People didn't want Maynard because apparently he took too long to make a decision and we only want players who want to play for the club. Nathan Smith was slagged off by some on social media for an apparent lack of loyalty and 'chasing the money' yet those same fans were wetting themselves with excitement when the news broke that he'd committed to a new 2 year deal. Now we don't want McKirdy because he's a bit of a prat who plays up a bit. He's a little <ovf censored> house but so what? We're lacking goals out wide and we need to stop f

  10. I don;t understand the negativity behind McKurdy. Yes he wasn't happy in Carlisle. We all see he plays with a swagger, is "clever" winning free kicks which is annoying to watch at times however he is that skilled creative type we currently lack in our squad. A player who can do something out of nothing to unlock a defence in a tight game. The type of player every promotion chasing squad need.

  11. From strength to strength . Quite siimply, what a club! Even through our success in the nineties, I've never felt prouder of what Port Vale now represent and the lives we are touching. Daren't even dream of the rolling impact if the results on the field follow.

  12. I've been impressed with Hurst. Sure some people watch the game with their backs turned to the screen. He's caused their right back all sorts of trouble. He's a young lad developing. Of course he'll have things he can improve on. I'm sure he and the management team know that. I don't think they need FM experts belittling them on a forum.

  13. We should be aiming to win this. If the Everton game is on sky, that's a lot of revenue. If it isn't, we will still get as much or maybe even more revenue from Vale and Everton fans buying it through Vale's iFollow portal, because Everton don't have one. 25,000 viewers would be £200,000. The Shanahans deserve that money.

  14. Why does Fitzpatrick get stick so much? Is it because CJ Hamilton ran past him a couple of times in a friendly when he had no fitness? He's a solid L2 LB and had another dependable game again, clearing one off the line at 1-0. Vale fans always need a scapegoat don't they? No player was anything less than a 7/10 today. Very decent professional performance with a lot of positives.

  17. Let's just keep in mind that we'll lose games this season, and there won't be too many more difficult games than Exeter away, so let's not lose our minds if we get beat. This season will largely be about how react to defeats. I really don't see any side having it easy against us though if we turn up. If we're behind in games we have a bench to be able to change things around. It's the strongest bench we've had since the last century, in my opinion.

  25. At Bradford away last year I ended up sitting virtually in a line with the one on the pitch along which Joyce played virtually the whole first half. He hardly moved off this line between our penalty area and the half-way line. I began to start watching him closely and it was fascinating. He lacks pace but more than makes up for it in anticipation. He covered areas constantly and all our play went through him despite him rarely passing the ball more than ten yards. Utterly unspectacular but brilliant. Watch him one game, maybe one behind closed doors on the television and see how crucial he is

  26. Some absolute tripe posted in here today. Apparently Worrall doesn’t have the pace to play in this system, even though he was player of the year in it last season. Obviously was a poor game, but give credit to Harrogate they were a very tough team to play against. Was quality that let us down today rather than effort, the effort was still there from everyone. Yes Worrall had a poor game, but I think people are going OTT. He still covered every blade of grass, still involved in a lot of the play, didn’t go hiding. Just didn’t come off for him today with some mis-hit passes,

  29. Terrific professional performance at one of the toughest places to visit in the division. The encouraging thing is I don't think we are firing on all cylinders yet. The player of last season Wozzer has been industrious but pretty quiet going forward, Manny is still gaining match fitness, Burgess is finding his form and despite his goal scoring, I think Cullen can get better. We look a stronger squad and have options that we didn't have 12 months ago. Things are looking very promising.

  32. Wow I've really upset the natives. It's not abuse its a personal opinion that he is a poor commentator. Others have agreed one called it inane . There were a few comments on the Blackpool game where at times the chit chat was bordering on cringeworthy. I've seen derogatory comments about McKirdy, Robinson and numerous others but I find the reaction to my comment as really OTT. The problem on here is that if you aren't one of the' in crowd ' and offer something that doesn't pander then you get slated. One of our esteemed posters who everybody looks up to and puts on a ped

  33. Delighted with this signing, and it's the best transfer window we've had for a long time! I think HM will become as popular as Gareth Ainsworth did )who also had some critics!). But, I have some disappointments with this saga: Disappointed in some of our fans, having to resort to attacks on his personal appearance - that's the kind of thing I loathed about Clive Tyldesley and Jonathan Pearce...and the Irish commentator whose name I can never remember! Not for them to comment on a player's appearance (tattoos/hairstyle, etc) and no need to do it on here if you're proved wrong about so

  34. Pleased with the McKirdy signing,I remember watching him against was it Dulwich Hamlet in a televised cup match and thinking he was the kind of player we needed, it's up to him now at 23 to carve a career out for himself, if he hits the ground running the Vale crowd will love him. I also thought as the week dragged on that the club maybe looking at the finances with Covid not doing the decent thing and going away, and would try and save a salary, so once again more thanks to Carol, it seems to me she is just as competitive as any owner in the football league without being unrealistic and

  37. Lets get it right. Baring two players that was basically our reserve team. They had a much stronger side out than we did, and playing at home goes a little bit out the window to a degree without a crowd. Worrall, Montano and Robinson up front on Saturday for me. Cullen and Rodney (so much potential!) very good options to have on the bench. This is our best squad in Donkeys years.

  42. In previous years we have relied on loans to fill glaring gaps in the squad. Managers who seemed oblivious to not having certain positions covered and relying on loans to plug the gap. This year it feels like we have a full squad with backup and we haven’t touched the loan market yet. It’s a positive position to be in.

  44. That's twisting things a bit though. In all competitions he has a very credible 17 goals in 80 games and that's despite one permanent and three loan spells (so he's had to settle into four different squads, tactics and team mates and he's still found the net regularly).

  45. I am not sure why everybody has such a downer on McKirdy. He annoyed me when he played against us last season with his antics and previously at Crewe but he looked a good player. I would take his goals next season as our other midfielders don't look like getting 9 or 10 plus goals a season. I think he would give us something different than what we already have. Irrespective of whether he is a poor mans Grealish or not I trust our management team to be able to ascertain this and then handle him. Let's see if he signs first and then judge him.

  46. - Ruined a very competitive league one side by offering very low contracts on purpose to shift a manager who at the time was doing alright - Hired a manager because he apparently had a phone call from Jose Mourinho who told him he was good and would even loan us some of the United kids at the time - Gave big contracts to failed European academy footballers who had no experience in English football - Relegation - Claimed he was beaten up by Vale fans despite being no evidence of this happening nor CCTV showing it - Claimed to have been run over outside the club witho
