  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

  4. 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.

  5. When the fixtures came out I had a feeling that one of our biggest games of the season had come round very early. Delighted to get three points at a place where we traditionally struggle. Their commentators were talking about us as genuine promotion contenders.

  6. Clearly a very good win and I thought we looked a solid. 4 moments of quality really made the difference: Brown's save Rodney's finish Conlon's through ball Conlon's goal Looking at results today and some of the quality in one or two sides I think it will be a very tight league this season. I certainly feel we will be in the mix. I was told the day after we signed Rodney that he would be the x factor that could make the difference this season. Having him on the left gives us a second out ball, which I think is going to help away from home. Man of the Match was Conlon f

  7. What a result. Listening to it on BBC Radio Devon, who provided excellent balanced commentary where they were very complimentary about us, describing us as a very good side who will be in the mix.

  10. Majestic performance - controlled the game from start to finish with one of the hardest working displays I've seen for a long time. The players must be whacked and all credit to JA for resting the first team ahead of this game. All rounded off with two great goals and an astonishing save from Brown in the last five minutes. Looking at the side, we must have the best goalkeeper in L2, the best central defensive pairing and in Cullen and Devante two players that are going to give us a real edge. Well done, JA and the players for sending a strong message to the rest of L2 that we are g

  12. That win can’t be underestimated and is a real statement of intent because exeter are a good side and that’s a tough place to go. Whether no crowd at grounds like this helps away teams is something we don’t know, but overall what a good performance. They had 2 unbelievable chances in the second half which is going to happen in games, but we rode our luck and Browns save is a good as a goal. Conlon has carried on from where he left off last season and on this evidence we are not going to miss Taylor. Legge was also immense too. Rodney showed exactly what pace gives you when you’re under pressur

  13. Yes, and a masterstroke by Askey to bring Montano on and move Rodney to the middle. If he keeps doing that, the only person on the opposition who will be happy is the right back!

  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.

  18. As a fan that don’t go many games anymore after watching the video I was so proud to be a vale fan I went straight down the shop and bought a men’s and kids away shirt to send to a very good mate of mine who loves vale but lives in Spain god save the vale 👍👍

  21. Agree with the positive comments made. That's as good an away win as you'll get in this League. Their first home defeat for a year, I believe. Super effort from everyone involved. Gritty and determined but a touch of class from Conlon. I'm unsure how we're going to keep all these players happy. You could name another XI starters arguably just as good, especially in the final third.

  22. Interesting take from the co-commentator on Radio Devon... we’re a tall, physical side but do not have many weaknesses in the team, with a very good goalkeeper, two solid stoppers in Smith and Legge, industrious midfield and pace up front.

  24. Conlon's going to end up getting drug tested if he carries on as he has, absolutely mad for it from the first whistle. He's started this season with the unlimited energy we see from Worrall. Really impressive considering the 5 months off.

  25. I thought Mills easily had his best game for Vale today although he did have a bit of a shocker with a drop ball

  26. Was it a foul by Conlon before the second goal? I felt it was six of one, half a dozen of the other. Tom was being fouled at first and did a bit of fouling back. A couple of little pieces of sharpness in midfield made the difference, Manny getting wrong side of their man to win the free kick and Conlon getting past his man to send Dave away for the second goal.

  27. Away from home I'd give the nod to Rodney as our lone forward. Nothing against Cullen, he links the play well at times, but Rodney gives us such a physical presence. It will also allow us to play one of McKirdy or Amoo, with Worrall on the other side. Montano for me is better as an attacking left-back.

  28. Fantastic. I was hoping for a draw but the vale proved they can beat anyone on their day. Everyone put a shift in today , especially the back four who battled and won pretty much every header. Conlon MOTM for me, I really think this is his season to stand out. Brown as well looks commanding as ever and that save was unreal. Just a side note , Bolton have spent ridiculous money again and have signed around eighteen players and have lost every game so far. We have no one to fear this season and can really challenge for a top six place . Buzzing to get back to Vale Park. S

  34. Worrall's going chin Rodney in a minute, shouting at him. Great runs, poor pass awareness. Twice now he should have squared it across the box or played a key diagonal into it for Worrall but he kept his head down and ended up spooning a shot. Very dangerous (in a good way) but very raw. Really grown into and now dominating the game after a shaky start at the back. Intense scrappy start, few dangerous errors, the goal changed the game a bit and calmed both sides down.

  37. Like everyone has said about the launch video. How far the club has come in such a short time. The message from the video is we are a community club, rather than a owners toy for taking as much money out of it. So a massive thank you to our owners and all the people working at the club to change that image. You are very definitely doing it. The kit looks awesome as well.

  39. 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.
