  1. I think a goalscoring midfielder and striker are the two main priorities...

  2. I think they're safe unfortunately. Too many idiots below them. Still, we had our fun and that's all that matters. This season has been like some sort of Mel Brooks comedy where a handful of Championship teams are desperate to get relegated to League One because of the huge losses they're making.

  3. What an amazing story. I actually work in a unit just above the ground (well I would if I wasn't furloughed) and it's so tiny (the stadium, not my workplace). It's unbelievable to think it will be a Championship stadium now. I know a number of Wycombe fans through work and there's some real die hards who will be over the moon.

  4. What a free kick, if that had been De Bruyne they’d have been creaming them selves on motd.

  5. It's a great achievement and could not happen to a nicer bloke than Ainsworth.

  6. Thanks, Rob. I don't recall ever seeing more than a few minutes of highlights from that match.

  7. ....and while we watch this game and delight at the skill and endeavour of one Gareth Ainsworth, the very man himself is currently shouting out tactics and encouragement to his Wycombe team as they try to win the first division play-off and get into the Championship ...and I hope they do too, especially for ex-BBC presenter Bill Turnbull who is a big fan and has inoperable cancer Points-with-Bone

  8. I don't either. 17 league goals from the 3 main strikers together by mid March was nowhere near enough. Taylor was joint second top scorer. Lots peppering in here and there from the midfield but there wasn't enough going on up front.

  10. Was a bit fearful that relegation would trigger some genuine action in the fanbase at their inept operational structure. £18m on Kevin Wimmer ffs. How heads didn't roll I'll never know. Hopefully, squeaking survival on one of the largest budgets will placate the masses enough that our lad Scholesy can continue the sterling work he has embarked upon. Relegation and a subsequent overhaul and promotion push would re-energise them; there's a certain joy to behold in them 'losing me love for the club'.

  11. Over the past few years under Smurf I have dreaded drawing a full strength Sjoke side in a cup competition. not now. They must be dreading drawing us , as every confidence this Vale team would beat Sjokes strongest 11. If they have such a thing.

  12. That's just unbelievable to me. Clearly improved since he left Lincoln but can't say I was fussed with his links to ourselves or should I say rumours

  16. Episode 8 is out now! It's the 3 of us this week. It's been a surprisingly busy week at the Vale so we cover the news including: - Nathan Smith signing a new deal! - New Signing Alert! Devante Rodney - News of the new season start date We then have a quick chat about the Player of the Year and Goal of the Season awards (Spoiler - We didn't all choose Tom Pope's at Man City) After that we go in to the first part of the squad review ahead of the 2020/2021 season (Whenever it happens). We go through the keepers and defenders on the books,

  17. We have 4 players who can play leftback on the books already. If we sign Clark that would be 5. Montano is the best of the 4 we currently have, so the other 3 (Crookes, Hurst, Campbell-Gordon) are squad players. Askey's hope is to pay more for one very good player who can play in 4 positions is better value than 3 mediocre players. There are very few good leftbacks around at the level so any reserve we sign wouldn't be that good.

  18. Of course, when it comes to punditry (a separate issue), women have to be 100x sharper than a man as they'd get eaten alive by the baying mobs if they ballsed up. Paul Merson claimed De Bruyne would flop; Collymore said Guardiola's style of play wouldn't work over here; Chris Kamara barely knows the names of the players of the game he's reporting on. Most of this is brushed aside, and in Kamara's case, celebrated as a bit of a laugh (which is fine, he's quite entertaining). Issue I have, when a female pundit is on, if she even slightly calls things wrong, the attack dogs are out.

  19. As soon as I saw this thread I thought Ebony Rainford-Brent; knowledgeable, personable and probably most importantly she slides effortlessly into the whole ethos that makes Test Match Special such a 'slow-radio' national treasure For sure there's a couple of female sports commentators that grind [which ones in particular differs according to personal taste] but the whole crux of prejudice is to generalize from one or two untypical examples to back up ones' negative stereotypes Spo why would anyone have an opposition to females commentating, other than from a sad misogynist view of fe

  20. Yeah I agree, I’d like to think we’ll bring in a back up goalie, a full back (preferably Mitch Clark on loan), a midfield stopper and a big striker.

  22. Taylor all day. Clark is great but a goal scoring midfielder is gold dust
