  1. Hi guys, as a Wanderers fan and also one of the many DP fans, I’m gutted Denis isn’t coming back and I can assure you he isn’t. There was no need to send him out in the first place rather than bed him back in here off the bench exactly as he has done with “his” signings who weren’t fit to play 90 minutes. Clearly Evatt doesn’t see him in his side so will let him go, despite the fact that most fans believe he’s exactly what we need right now. There’s zero chance of Evatt leaving any time soon and to be fair most don’t want him to, so we have to see what signings he makes in January to see if it’s a good decision or not. I’d say that leaves the door open for you to sign him and I think that you would have a super acquisition for free. Good luck to the lad wherever he ends up and I hope we see you both in L1 next season, assuming we’re still there of course!! 😉

  2. We’re asking all those same questions here Joe, it really doesn’t make any logical sense. Evatt has this aversion to playing our young players in front of “his” signings, which is irrational for a start and has loaned most out to find them a home. Our two best, DP and Ronan Darcy were both sent out but offered new contracts. Darcy signed, Denis didn’t and it seems to have peed off Evatt. I don’t think he’s playing mind games here, he’s not going to call Denis back because he’s been promised money in January to bring in new players, which by all accounts he’s already got lined up. You’re right about ego though, he’s full of himself. I like people with confidence but I’m afraid Evatt goes way over the top. In fact it embarrasses us at times, so it looks like if you want Denis, you can have him for free. Utter madness to me but it must make sense to Evatt!! I really shouldn’t say this but if and hopefully when you get up next year, I’d love Denis to shove a hat trick down his throat against us and then you to get multi millions for his transfer onwards. Did I really just say that? What a sheet fan I am. 🤣😔

  3. Good luck to (checks notes) Joey Barton in his moral crusade for footballers to act with more honesty and integrity.

  4. You can watch premier v premier every weekend, if I was a Chesterfield fan I would be well upset. What has happened to the glory of the FA cup, premier clubs have no interest in it and hardly need the TV money.

  7. We have but they're all injured as well. That said, I think anybody suggesting we bring in Andrew wants their head examining. I'd rather the Roy Sproson statue ahead of Andrew

  8. Should have been another red card for the tackle on Gibbo as the final whistle went, worse than the first two put together.

  11. Oh well, I guess it's back to just listening again. The FA and the EFL really need to get their act together so video can be shown via iFollow of FA Cup games. I for one would happily pay the entrance fee or more to watch on iFollow..

  13. Most of those games I can understand, Swindon-City defo, plus always a good chance of an upset if Champ team at home v Prem, and will be an audience for Forest given their history, Millwall v Palace could be a bit tasty too. Man U-Villa and WHam-Leeds tho? They sound good games on paper, but they won't be as bothered about this as they are the two league games every year between the same teams, and so you'll basically just get a reserve match. Surely Chelsea-Chesterfield should have been chosen before those, or Kiddy-Reading, even if our game wasn't? Oh well, more chance of a decent crowd if not on TV I guess.

  15. Are Congleton/Hanley at a low enough level that Pope or Dagnell qualify as free agents able to sign before this game? 🤣

  17. Was a facetious comment. Clarke will win 3 promotions. Carol said in an interview on 5Live (I think) that she wants Vale in the Championship before she retires.

  21. That really is a shock isn`t it. I think now the tories are fed up of digging him out of the crap by lying on his behalf She is now an independant so she was sacked. I don`t believe that all MPs are feathering their own nests, that is what the tories would like you to believe as it is mainly them who are corrupt. This government seem to believe they are above the law and that is very dangerous territory.

  22. Agreed again. I'm amazed Livingstone isn't in the middle order for his batting alone. I think he's the type who won't be cowed by the Aussies and his FC ave is better than many of those in there. It's weird, just because he's good at one day he seems to be forgotten for the longer form, but it is possible to be good at Test AND limited over cricket. And yes, his spin, alongside that of Root, would be an advantage too. Same with Broad/Anderson - their obvious qualities aside, again they are characters who won't be cowed and would have come out swinging.

  23. First of all, let’s see if Evatt is still Bolton manager in January. A change would throw everything back up in the air.

  24. I hope so, otherwise I'd be sad and find it very hard having to vote for him and his mob. The more that's come out recently, the more the Tory backbenchers are disliking him and with the Conservative rules about the leader, once the backbenchers are lost in sufficient quantity, the leader usually becomes 'toast'!

  26. Why??? Delia Smith has been in a similar position at Norwich since...what...early 2000's from being a season ticket holder? There are parallels with Carol and no reason to think Carol would flip the club if it's becoming successful? Delia turned down a large sum from a Norwich businessman because she would have had to relinquish her shares - for Delia the fan, see Carol the fan!

  27. Thanks! TBF, it's not really my own work. It's based on a letter that I saw fall out of JoeB's pocket, addressed to a different player.

  30. I’d agree but add that recent results and performances don’t suggest we can be solid. We give most teams decent chances and don’t keep many clean sheets. I think we’ll need to score a couple to take something from this game.

  31. I'm a bit confused as the quotes from Evatt don't outright say he won't be recalled, but the headline does. Evatt basically says that as long as he doesn't get many minutes here he won't be recalled. There's a good chance he plays the full 90 for the next 5 games until we can sign a forward, and potential more throughout January when they will still retain a recall clause. I admit it's made more unlikely as I don't think Politic will like these comments, but until Evatt outright says 'he's staying at Vale' I'm going with the view that Bolton will have him back. It also begs the question of, if he's not getting many minutes here (primarily due to our wing-back system), why not recall him and loan him to a club who play with proper wingers where he's guaranteed minutes? None of this makes much sense - it strikes me of some silly gamesmanship, which I can't quite work out, as part of the contract negotiations.

  32. He's kind of a bit of a Sam Foley type player and we often miss that isnt he, box to box engine with a knack of arriving at the right time. He is on track for 12-15 goals this season which when you account we all raved about Conlon getting 10 last season which included set pieces. If your playing away from home or against a footballing side at home he should be first on the team sheet, the only question is against poorer sides at home. After Walsall i loved that interview where he was about crying, showed how much he cared... hard not to get behind the lad and really showing his worth to us.

  33. Well after last night and Saturdays deserved 2-1 away victories we head to Newport . We should have so much confidence flowing through the ranks in the space of a week away Rotherham had about 13 goal attempts v Burton 9 goal attempts and Bristol Rovers 10 there's no reason whatsoever that we cannot go there and score and play well which in fairness v Rotherham and Burton they did didn't watch last night as gf getting annoyed at how she feels I'm getting obsessed with football and Vale but reading the stats we were superb first half with Worrall and Rodney on . So who to choose . Stone Cass Smith Legge Gibbons Politic Pett Burgess Benning Conlon Garrity That's if no Wozza and Rodney I liked the flow of that team in last 20 v Rotherham Burgess added a lot I thought I think we go for it we are a excellent attacking side I think that team I've chose will attack them from all areas you got Legge on set pieces and you got Burgesses legs to aid Garritys and if you got Conlon in the hole and he as one of his days where he connects with the ball well he maybe will score with a excellent free kick . There's nothing to fear no forwards or not . UTV
