  3. I didn't buy into the wholesale changes thing till today but I can only agree. I'm sorry to say that I think the likes of Roy, Buttler and even Bairstow have no Test mentality. I hesitate to go back to the bad old days of wholesale changes but I can't see how the likes of Pope (Ollie, not Tom) can help either. He was dropped for a ridiculous attacking shot. For me, I would immediately restore Foakes who is the best wicketkeeper and can bat sensibly, we then need a new opener, a number three (presuming Root moves to four) and a middle-order batsmen who doesn't play in ODI mode all the time.
  4. Defender James Gibbons has thanked stand-in captain Leon Legge for his assistance on Tuesday evening. Youngster Gibbons has been in fine form this season but after a stunning cross to set up Vale’s opener, the young full-back was at fault for Rovers’ equaliser. After the error, Legge went to Gibbons and as the youngster explained: “put his arm around me and said ‘keep your head up it’s gone, you’ve been playing well, you’ve set up the goal and been doing brilliant so don’t let it affect you, carry on and start again’. Continue reading In-form James Gibbons thanks Port Vale skipper for words of wisdom at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  5. Port Vale midfielder Cristian Montano has been ruled out of the game against Grimsby Town due to concussion protocol. Montano suffered a head injury in the second-half of Tuesday’s 2-1 win over Forest Green Rovers and had to be helped off the pitch by the Vale medical team. Coach Dave Kevan confirmed that the in-form player will miss Saturday’s game. Kevan commented: “Monty took a blow to his head so there was a slight concussion.

  6. For me that's the area we need to strengthen if we can. There are plenty of options upfront - Cullen, Pope, Bennett as the "traditional" forwards - plus Amoo, Browne and Worrall adding pace to a front three. We have reasonable cover in defence although another centre-half would be useful. But for me the one thing we don't have much cover for is the attacking/creative force from midfield. The two players who can provide that - Oyeleke and Montano - are the ones who pick up the most injuries. So, while it's easy to say on here "go and get a creative attack-minded midfielder" (and much harder in reality to do the deal) that would be the ideal addition for me.
  7. Port Vale manager John Askey has confirmed that former Notts County player Will Patching is on trial with the club. Patching was released by County at the start of the season and is looking for a new club. Askey told the media: “Will started his career at Manchester City and is a very promising young player. For whatever reason it didn’t work out for him at Notts County and he is one that popped up on the radar.

  8. Our new-look guide takes a look ahead to the trip to Grimsby for the Valiants… The top image comes from our last Vale Park meeting back in December 2018. Thanks to Rob Morris for the photo. OVERALL RECORD 33 Wins 40 Losses 18 Draws NEWS DESK The Valiants are buzzing after their impressive 2-1 home win over Forest Green Rovers. With manager John Askey praising the attacking play and skipper Leon Legge praising the Vale support, things are looking up for the club.

  9. So Australia, how did changing your opener go?
  10. Well, despite his distractions, I would argue Butland is an excellent keeper. I thought Stoke grabbed an absolute bargain when they initially got him. But that may be it and I take the point that some of the recent Jones signings hardly have potential and are just physical units.
  11. Here we go... I'm hoping that the Aussies without Smith will collapse like a house of cards.
  12. I think the same too. The problem for them I suspect will be if they fall into the trap of knee jerk reactions - selling Butland for less than he's worth because of a handful of poor performances, ditching the manager after less than a year in charge etc...
  13. Stand-in captain Leon Legge has praised “positive” Port Vale supporters for creating a “different atmosphere” from last season. Legge stood in for Tom Pope on Tuesday evening as Vale swept aside Forest Green Rovers and the tall defender has been delighted with the support from the fans. There were grumbles on the terraces last season due to discontent with events on and off the pitch but new ownership and a more attacking style of play has seen much more positivity from the sidelines. Continue reading Skipper praises positive Port Vale fans at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  14. Former Port Vale central defender Connell Rawlinson says the club made an offer to take him off the transfer list before his move to Notts County. Rawlinson was signed by former manager Neil Aspin and was a regular for the first-half of last season. However, the defender was transfer-listed along with Ben Whitfield by manager John Askey when Vale released their retained list. Despite that blow, Rawlinson was praised by Askey for his attitude during the pre-season campaign. Continue reading Former Port Vale player says club wanted him to stay at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  15. That's kind of how I see it too. Wikipedia says Callum Evans can play left-back too. So maybe the club are not looking for any more left-back. From what I've read the club has a lot of faith in Campbell-Gordon and it's noticeable that while the other graduates have been loaned out, there's no suggestion that C-G will be. That tends to suggest they see him as in contention for a place. I would not be surprised if he starts the odd FLT game.
