  1. It would fit the pattern that has already happened of one in, one out... Taylor signed / McKirdy deregistered Guthrie signed / Robinson deregistered If a new CB signs then presumably it will be Legge who is deregistered to free up the space However, it certainly doesn't make sense to deregister Legge now when we don't need to free up a space in the squad. That said, not much has made sense in recent weeks... 😉
  2. Hi, personally I'd love to see that tape. Fielding family urban legend said that in those days the camera used to pan around the fans while the commentator gave a summary at h-t. According to my mum, she was phoned by people saying it had zoomed in on me and my dad having a cup of coffee but we've never seen it to confirm. I'll PM as I'd love to borrow the tape and try and copy it then return it.
  3. I believe "Collinge" is youth team keeper Joe Collinge.
  4. Team news article by OVF - https://www.onevalefan.co.uk/2021/01/team-news-gibbins-in-squad-guthrie-starts-for-port-vale-against-walsall/
  5. I hope Clinton gets plenty of Vale and Torquay fans toasting his memory tonight.
  6. The Boulton family are asking Port Vale fans around the world to join them tonight in raising a glass to the memory of the late Clinton Boulton. If you would like to join in the tribute, it will take place at 7.30pm. More details in this article: https://www.onevalefan.co.uk/2021/01/raise-a-glass-in-memory-of-clinton-boulton/
  7. Hi all, I've been in contact with the Jeffers family to pass on the condolences of the OVF community. They told me that they have taken great comfort from reading some of the comments and I have offered to pass them all onto them. ** Please: if you want pass on a tribute or memory of the much loved John Jeffers please add a comment to this thread *** To explain: at times like this OVF can at least let the families know how much their loved one meant to Vale fans. When Steve Fox sadly passed away, I passed on the comments from fans to them and the family wrote back to tell me th
  8. From Wikipedia: He was appointed as the club's head of coaching development five months later, saying that "I see a key part of my role as bridging the gap between the younger players and the first team" So, he's not responsible for youth team results, he's more responsible for brining youngsters into the first-team. I would imagine that's Vale looking at the limit on over 21s and looking for someone to get some youngsters to step up. It's probably a grey area exactly what that role is and when/what results should be expected but I don't think it's as simple as the youth team c
  9. There have been plenty of comments posted on the article on the front of OVF here - https://www.onevalefan.co.uk/2021/01/john-jeffers-passes-away/ I just wanted to highlight these two from JJ's former teammates: Simon Mills 20th January 2021 @ 3:01 pm Totally shocked and gutted, brilliant player, top bloke and a fantastic team mate. Always laughing and a proper scouse sense of humour. R.I.P J.J Ian Bogie 20th January 2021 @ 3:23 pm I only knew John for a short time when I joined the Vale , but he was a lovely lad with a great character and personality to go alongside
  10. Talking of that Liverpool game... This is quite an old video from the OVF YouTube channel so the sound is ropey (beware: it's a bit 'boomy') but if you watch from 46 seconds on you see Jeffers trick his former teammates to set up Vale's equaliser:
  11. This photo sums him up for me. Defender going one way, JJ going the other as he dips his shoulder...
  12. I've done a little tribute piece of his career in pictures. Several images show him always with a ready smile and also in that classic winger pose about to beat his man. It's here - https://www.onevalefan.co.uk/2021/01/john-jeffers-his-port-vale-career-in-pictures/
  13. A favourite of mine too. Very sad news and my thoughts are with his friends and family.
