  4. Swindon Town manager Richie Wellens thinks his Swindon squad is stretched to the limits as they prepare to take on the Valiants. Town’s bench for the defeat to Newport County comprised mainly of teenagers and Wellens thinks his squad needs boosting ahead of Vale’s visit. He told the local media: “The squad now – because we’ve been running on empty a little bit over the past few weeks – needs some help, it needs some refuelling and it needs a boost with an extra couple of bodies coming through the door.” “It’s a reminder – yes, we are top of the league, but have we got a top of the league squad at the moment?

  5. Port Vale manager John Askey says that sometimes “it is down to the players” when it comes down to negotiating new contracts with the football club. A host of players including first-team regulars Nathan Smith, James Gibbons, Leon Legge, David Worrall and David Amoo are all out of contract at the end of the season. Central defender Smith has already been linked with a move to Championship side Birmingham City and with the club in a far better position than last season, Askey will be keen to maintain the core of his squad.

  6. In-form Port Vale centre-half Nathan Smith says he is enjoying his football more than at any other time in his career. The dependable youngster has been a stand-out performer this season alongside veteran Leon Legge and is a contender for the Vale player of the season award. Speaking after being awarded the sponsors’ man of the match award for the win over Leyton Orient, Smith told the official Port Vale website: “Winning games makes them more enjoyable, it makes that feel good factor around the club, that little bit of a buzz in the changing room, the morale’s high and I think I’m enjoying my football probably the most I have in my career. Continue reading In-form Nathan Smith – I’m enjoying my football at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  7. Port Vale manager John Askey said he was pleased with the style of Port Vale’s play after their 1-0 home win over Leyton Orient. The Valiants secured their first home win since the 29th December thanks to winger David Amoo’s second-half strike. However, the Valiants created a number of chances before the winning goal including chances for Will Atkinson, Mark Cullen and David Worrall. The three points makes up for the disappointment of Vale’s midweek loss to Morecambe and see Vale stretch their unbeaten run at home to four matches.

  9. Port Vale could soon have a fully fit squad after the news that Manny Oyeleke and Adam Crookes have both returned to training. The duo have been missing for some weeks and the Valiants will be careful not to rush them back into action. The pair have been having rehabilitation at Burton’s St George’s Park over the last two weeks and are now fit enough to rejoin first-team training sessions. Continue reading Port Vale boosted as duo return to training at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  10. Another Pope reaches triple figures. Though this one is a bit younger, shorter and less controversial on social media platforms...
  11. Port Vale manager John Askey has dismissed online rumours that Championship side Birmingham City are interested in Port Vale defender Nathan Smith as “nothing”. Locally-born Smith has been in fine form this season and Internet rumours have linked the Blues with a swoop for the 23 year-old central defender. However, when asked the question in a press conference, Askey told the media: “You have probably been talking to Nathan’s agent!

  14. Port Vale have confirmed that striker Jordan Archer will join National League side Stockport County on loan for a month. The former Bury forward joined the Valiants in September 2019 and made a goalscoring debut in the Football League Trophy clash against Shrewsbury Town. However, his spell at the club has been disrupted by injuries with Archer makign just eight appearances so far. The Vale clearly think a run of first-team football will benefit the 26 year-old who will play under former Port Vale manager Jim Gannon, now manager of Stockport. Continue reading Port Vale allow striker Jordan Archer to go out on loan at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  15. Considering who manages Stockport, I wish Jordan the very best of luck!!!
  16. A round-up of some of the stores to come out of the club in recent days including an event at Vale Park, a new commercial deal and the departure of a key member of staff. Vale Park to host apprenticeship event A recruitment event will be held at Vale Park in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent on Wednesday February 5.

  17. So sad to read this - they are all in my thoughts. May Ronan rest in peace.
  18. The club have also renewed their partnership with Blink Creative who have helped with things like the design of the club graphics, kit launches etc. While Max will undoubtedly be hard to replace it's good to see them continue with Blink and it should that the owners clearly want the club to come across in a professional, consistent way. It's such a refreshing change from previous regimes who seemed to regard marketing, media and PR as an expensive irrelevance and tried to spend as little as possible on it.
  19. Blimey we got to lunch without losing a wicket. I know it's a flat deck but still... I've seen a stat that says that is the first time England have been no wickets down at lunch on day one since the days of Strauss and Cook opening.
  20. Port Vale manager John Askey says that the four consecutive away fixtures has been a “tough run.” Vale last played at home on New Year’s Day and since then have faced Manchester City, Salford City, Stevenage and Morecambe away from home. Askey told the official Port Vale website: “It’s been a tough run of fixtures we’ve just played four away games on the bounce so it was always going to be difficult and take a bit out of us, but we’ve got a home game coming up so hopefully we can respond and if we get three points then we’re back in it. Continue reading Port Vale manager – it’s been a tough run of fixtures at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  21. Max has been excellent in my opinion. Loads of quality content put out and a very nice bloke to boot. I wish him the best of luck for the future.
  22. Salford have signed Michael O'Connor today...
  23. It was a disappointing evening on Tuesday when Port Vale slumped to a 2-1 League Two away loss to struggling Morecambe. Arguably the only highlight for the Valiants was the first first-team goal for James Gibbons. It came on the defender’s 88th senior appearance for the club but sadly was not enough for Vale to get anything out of the game. Vale were also denied an equaliser late on when David Amoo forced a fine save out of Morecambe goalkeeper Mark Halstead. Continue reading Watch James Gibbons’ first senior Port Vale goal at onevalefan.co.uk. More
  24. I would definitely agree with that. I just hope we can agree a loan extension with Forest and we don't have a Jones/Anderson issue where a richer club comes in to nick our loanee.
  25. Port Vale manager John Askey has said he will look to bring in players during the January transfer window after the loss to Morecambe. Vale suffered a poor start where they conceded twice in the opening stages. When asked if he was looking to bring in players Askey told the media: “We need to, just to get things going again probably. Hopefully the lads respond as they have done in the previous games when this has happened. Continue reading Port Vale manager looks to new additions after loss to Morecambe at onevalefan.co.uk. More
