  1. Message / request to Martin Tideswell. Can we please have a bit more general communication around what’s happening at the club. And I don’t mean the manager situation... I’m talking just general things Port Vale. I had no idea that Richard Duffy was back working at the vale until it was on Radio Stoke today. We have heard nothing from Billy Paynter since his return, an interview would be fascinating. I would love to know his thoughts on his career and what he brings. What’s his official role, he was on the bench today I think... what’s his role in this interim period. How

  2. That's enough for me want someone different. Sick of these players getting everything they want. They decided they didnt want the last man, so downed tools. Get someone in from the outside and if they dont like it, they can <ovf censored> off.

  3. This signing is a prime example of how a club can benefit from respected owners. Players can now see that they will be looked after properly which was not the case under our previous owner. Not only have the Shanahans saved the club, they have restored its reputation in the football world.

  4. I wouldn't overly get carried away as this is our worst team for as long as I can remember. You really didn't have to play well to beat us though and I think you have far more tougher challenges to come. Holloway has shafted our club from top to bottom dont go anywhere near him. He was the biggest con artist to ever cross our paths. He is just a showman and mad one at that. Good luck for the rest of the season.

  11. OH NO....why have we signed him???? What a waste of money!!!! How many goals are we guaranteed he'll score? How much is he getting paid? Does he like Danny Pugh? Can't believe it.......................... Oh sorry......just pressed the fast forward button!! Welcome back Jake, a great signing who will hopefully go onto greater things either here or at a higher level. Shades of a Ray Walker signing for me......here's hoping! UTV

  12. When you have been around a bit and seen work places for a few years you will understand just how easily one piece of rotten fruit can turn the whole bowl. Especially if that piece of fruit gets to an already disgruntled, respected figure first. You see, when you try to belittle this in the way you have done here, it only highlights your own lack of worldliness. Now you will start crying about me picking on your chosen profession again but the truth is, you have never left the classroom. You went to school, higher education and then back to school again and it shows in the way you post

  13. If we all stop bickering ladies and gents and breathe a sigh of relief tonight. Whether you like or dislike Askey, Pope or Worrall etc we have got a monkey of our back. We were in freefall and I was desperately concerned that we may be within touching distance of the bottom 2 this evening. Let's hope that we can stop looking at Southend Grimsby and Stevenage results and steady the ship towards calmer waters We aren't suddenly world beaters and they are pretty shocking at the moment, but as we have a poor recent record against them it's a great win Let's savour a r

  14. ^This - those saying that Carols interview didn't inspire them with confidence, that the players are snakes etc obviously weren't listening to a word that she said! We are going through unprecedented times, Covid 19 has had a massive impact on the wider world, individuals will be having family issues, mental health issues etc. Everyone deals with extreme situations differently and if some of the players have been struggling this may well have affected their focus on the games. Carol alluded to this in her statement - she also said that there were a myriad of things that had gone wr

  15. I wouldn’t even judge Pugh on the forest green game as I think they’re a good side and we could well end up losing even if we had Jurgen klopp in the dugout. He’s won his first game and that’s a big three points yesterday. If we go on to get positive results against Walsall and Southend (if he’s still in charge then) then that’s a good solid start for him. we were far from great today, but we did the job. I feel that’s a game we would’ve lost under John Askey. So give Danny Pugh credit for getting the players to put a shift in and everyone worked hard. We had a bit of luck today with their

  16. Completely agree Mario. Of late at times we've made Mansfield look like AC Milan and Barrow like Barcelona. Today though, through the application that you mention, we at the very least made a poorish Grimsby look like a..... er, well, poorish Grimsby. There are important days ahead of course, but for tonight I'll just enjoy a Vale win

  20. Terrific signing. Just what we want.Young striker with pace. Looks good in the air. Scores goals with both feet. Been around a couple of seasons, so knows what to expect.To me there is more optimism with this signing than with Taylor. We now have Rodney, Taylor and Guthrie, all the same mould of player andjust what we needed 6 months ago. Need to get behind them now. Hope there is a good option to make the deal permanent if successful for the next 3 months. Why cant everyone leave well alone and make comments when we have seen him play for the Vale. Why cant we just get beh

  21. Some of the commentd on this thread are genuinely disturbing. Carol has paid out millions over the odds to rescue the club from Smurthwaite, millions more to keep the club going through an unprecedented worldwide crisis, has allowed the club to sign players such as Jake Taylor and is looking at paying out much more to carry on until fans are finally allowed back in and things get back to normal. We have no idea if that will be 2 months or 2 years. I'd absolutely forgive her for not wanting to take on an expensive new manager at this precise second when the (much cheaper) incumbent can ca

  22. There's nothing wrong with the players apologising to Carol. Her exact words (according to The Sentinel) were “The response I have had from players…I had players phoning me this week. I did have players phoning and apologising for not giving their all. They didn’t realise they weren’t but in retrospect they probably weren’t." That doesn't mean they consciously weren't trying but merely that after the sht hit the fan, they realised that they could have applied themselves more, something we all knew anyway. Not ideal but happens in most workplaces. I don't always work my hardest and if things

  23. It also shows how stupid some players are. To ring the owner and say words to the effect of “I know that you’ve invested £millions, given me a job for a few years and despite the pandemic kept us afloat, well , too be honest, I’ve not really given a <ovf censored> recently but I will now”. I’d go off my tree.

  24. What a weird turn for the thread. I also find it incredibly bizarre that people are blaming Sinclair for our troubles without a shred of evidence. Quite disrespectful to him really as well when he’s probably trying his best with his job.

  25. I've been coming on this site since '97 and this stream of posts has to go down as the strangest that I have witnessed during that time. The tone is so far beyond condescending that it is actually a little bit scary. You might understand that one day when you grow up and develop some social skills.

  28. Can see the headlines now for his unveiling: “Vale fans in writing-new-signing-off-before-he’s-even-kicked-a-ball-shocker” We really are horrendous, slag our own players off who are established, slag our homegrown lads off and also our new signings.

  29. Seriously does anyone truly believe that Pugh will play that same 11 away from home again in the league? Not a chance on this earth will he. Seems like some are just using that side as an excuse for the anti-Pugh agenda.

  30. What I find quite ironic about some of the posts on here is that a couple of weeks ago we had a thread which went on for 6 pages saying "Time for the club to make a statement". Now Carol has given an interview we have folk saying "she shouldn't have said that"!!

  31. To be fair, I don’t think Carol could do anything other than be supportive of Pugh. Folk on here have complained for weeks about players not playing for the manager so if she’d given a hint that he was just a stop gap until someone better came along how would that play out? Let’s see what happens rather than jumping on every word and interpreting it in whatever way fits our agenda.

  33. A win's a win but I thought we were average at best overall, up against one of the worst sides I've seen for a long time. I reckon I could get a bunch of mates together and give Grimsby a game. We had a bit more effort about us which is the least we can expect after a manager change, but let's see how we get on against opposition that has at least a little something about them.

  35. The same people who refused to accept that Askey wasn't doing a very good job after 6 points in 36 and think he was 'hounded out' by fans who can't attend games, are also creating conspiracy theories by combing through Pope's weekly column with a magnifying glass and working with the FBI to find evidence of some grand conspiracy, coordinated by Pope, ably assisted by McKirdy, Robinson, Clark, and Sinclair, with technical support from Carol's son and the inside mole in Pugh.

Some of the three main loves in my life are, The Vale, beer and the Missus. And there was great news about 2 of them this week. We secured the signing of an exciting young player despite interest from other Clubs. I look forward to Jake helping to drive Port Vale forward from the engine room again. Welcome home son. As far as beer is concerned, did you read that Watneys have reintroduced the Party Seven. And this time the ale has a

  39. Bit of a strange comment. Strange in the sense of 'agenda' is a bit strong. After what we've had to put up with over the years, what is so radical about wanting an experienced outside manager for once rather than the cheap option? I wouldn't call that an agenda. I'd call it exasperated weariness.

  42. I, too, saw the bit about players apologising. I put myself in their shoes, and also in Carol's and why she shared it. My manager gets the sack. I/we haven't been doing well on the pitch. I hold my hands up, accept my part in it, and commit to doing better. As chair, hearing this shows humility, acceptance of responsibility and a re commitment to the cause. The players I might be more concerned about are those who say nothing, don't come forward, don't accept responsibility. I would put money on the players apologising were Legge, Joyce, Brown, Monty, Wozza. Real, rounded, consci

  43. Christ, lads. These are some very strong views. You might all be right, but there's no guarantee We'll never know what happened. Is it healthy for you lads to detest and hate and group of 'big babies who don't give a f*ck about the club' (imagine Conlon, Gibbons, and Pope would have an issue with that), or 'nasty snakes' with no real evidence to support your views? The likes of Scott Brown, Leon Legge, and Luke Joyce have been captains at clubs with far greater recent success than ours, and are massively respected in the game. They've got half a season to put it right. There are undo
