  1. 12 months gone by. Miss you Mike. Everytime i read OVF i expect to see your comments. The painting by Paine Proffit is absolutely brilliant. Its as good as a photo. Its my memory of Mike ... Owd Sage Weve lost some great valiants and true friends, too many. Cant wait to get back to Vale Park and give an extra loud cheer for all our missing fans. They will all be there cheering on the Vale. Lets make em proud when we get behind the lads in black n white. UTV

  3. The release list of every club is in to double figures. So that means we are no different.

  4. Most of the teams in our league are going to have much changed squads,so we won't be on our own in that respect. As well as all the other attributes we will need from players there is also value for money. We can't sign players on big money to play just a handful of games.

  5. Well I was a bit sceptical about a DOF and the appointment of a recruitment officer. But I’ve just read that Harry Kane has handed in a transfer request, tell me that’s not a coincidence. Did okay at Orient scoring 5 times in 18 games.

  6. Also, having a reasonable amount of coaches means there is...should...always be fresh ideas introduced to training - including set pieces, which we haven't always been great at!

  7. Don't worry, we've still got a season review to do with Baggers! Plenty of time for ranting on that one.

  8. I have much empathy with you but at the end of the day it depends on who Vale sign and how the team performs from now on. Some of the players who were let go were not good enough for Lge 2 and needed to go but some, Brown, Pope, Montano and Joyce IMHO were good Lge 2 footballers and would have helped to provide the nucleus of a good team, which together with 5-6 quality additions, would have formed a very competitive, promotion chasing Lge 2 team next season. Whereas now Vale will have so many new players that the first job will be to see who gels with who etc. It doesn't bode well

  10. Some good points. Hill would still have been a window signing as he signed after the second game of the season. A lot of his in season signings were after we had sold players. 2 of the best were Mills and Ford; signed for not a lot with the Andy Jones money. I think there signings coincided with the end of the run of 12 league games without a win (?). I think the basic premise remains that his close season business was often done late because the likes of Foyle, Hill, Aspin etc didn't really see us as a first choice destination. Hill was quite open in his OVF interview that he was hoping for o

  11. Can understand the sentiment but we have three local lads likely to start next year, plus a very popular player in Worrall. If they win games we'll quickly grow attached. We are entrenched in one of the top 3/4 worst periods in the club's history (possibly the worst 20 year spell post-war) and our fanbase isn't getting any bigger or younger as Stoke hoovered up an entire generation from 2008-2018. Brave and drastic measures were needed.

  12. I find Amoo, such a frustrating player. I hate it when he has the ball, he’s half way inside the opposition half facing toward the opposition goal with one defender beat and no one behind the defender. Why does he have to try and beat the defender, when all he needs to do is push the ball passed the defender into the hole and the sprint around him. He can gather the ball and cross it or depending on his position can cut in and create a chance for himself. He isn’t that good at beating a defender and this would improve his assists and goals scored figures. Ainsworth used to do it a lot. Stanle

  13. With Notts County beating Sutton tonight the race for a return to league football is very much on for Torquay, Hartlepool, Stockport, Wrexham, Notts C, Halifax or Chesterfield. Wrexham and Stockport please.. !

  14. Wrexham would end up being 12pm sunday kick offs after the festivities last time out.

  15. Well its one from Torquay, Sutton, Stockport and Hartlepool for top spot with only 4 games left, 5 for Sutton, Torquay 4 points clear so in their hands. I am hoping they come up, if we were to play away there at a favourable time of year, its a great place to visit. In the play offs, for me happy with any that are challenging apart from Hartlepool. Stockport, Chesterfield, Wrexham and Notts County all local and easily accessible on train for a good day out, Sutton, Bromley and Halifax would be new grounds to add to my list that I have visited.

  16. I got an email notification sound on my phone earlier just as I was getting into my car. I said out loud to myself "hopefully that's more about Mike" as I was closing the door as there was good news sent out earlier in the week about him doing a little better. It wasn't good. Fcuks sake man. As Joe mentioned Mike was at every single meeting. He was responsible for the coffin march. He was an instrumental part of the B&G surgical team fighting to stop Norman disease killing the patient. I must have hundreds of impassioned emails from Mike where his unwavering commitment to the clu

  17. A lot of Vale fans will never truly know how much they owe Mike Lakin for the existence of their football club. Would love to have something commemorated for him at the ground, and would be more than happy to contribute. The man was at every single meeting, march, and event organised in an effort to save Port Vale. He was absolutely instrumental in removing both V2001 and Norman. When football returns, we'll only have a club to return to thanks to Mike sacrificing hours of his time, taking the stick, driving to isolated far-flung pubs for meetings, turning up at the ground early to distri
