  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
  2. Yes Good luck Monty. A good guy on and off the pitch Will keep an eye out for you every week in the ' premiership '
  3. Some of those players have been excellent. We had them four years ago but the players around them were not up to it. Whether that is budget and we spent too much on certain players i am not sure. You are right about finance, spending loads of money never guarantees success. Spending money on the right players and getting a team to gel is the answer. Love it when the Salfords fail yet again. More often than not money does help towards promotion. Hope Carol has the money ready. I honestly dont think too many people can argue that D C has done wrong in this big clearout but i also know
  4. True about some good players. They have been / were good players but do we really need to keep hold of them for another season. On top money for the Vale too. That is the reason to move them on i believe mpore than anything else.
  5. We are Vale fans. We have to trust D C and his team to find and then tempt them to the Vale. Money will still be the biggest influence which is why out top earners had to go. They were not good enough.
  6. incremental change is great. Our problem is that we have also reached the end of the line with Pope Brown Joyce. Three key players. I would also add Legge to that list. To expect another top season from those four would be wrong in my opinion. This season had to be the big one unfortunately. We have released 15, Manny just before, 2 loan players gone and 3 on transfer list. Thats 21 players and in all honesty there is not much to say against releasing them all. D C now has to do his job. Find a new team and gel them together. Has been done before so its not impossible. I do agree th
  7. Crosby maybe a stop gap for a few months.
  8. 10 of those 15 will not take any problem in replacing with better players
  9. A LEGEND Good luck Tom and thanks for everything. From one true Vale fan to another
  10. Why not Dutton Who knows anything about him ? I would suggest Clarke knows everything. We are giving Clarke 100% backing to bring in players so why not his own assistant Five years ago was also Clarkes success
  11. We will not complete with ' a Charlton ' offering good money and league 1 football. Offer what we can, within reason but a good offer would also be good for the Vale, if money given to the right man !!
  12. Thats the easy part done. D C will now have to earn his money. Good luck !!
  13. Has anyone been up so far today. Is it busy
  14. At Christmas i thought he was playing. 🤣🤣
