  1. I can't imagine it's gone down well with anyone at the club Rob. I don't think he's guaranteed a starting spot in the lineup, and 6 matches is time for someone to get hold of the starting position and take it away for good.
  2. Jeno is one of my favourite players from the last decade Rob. The production out of him was superb, and I felt he was unfairly treated for someone who did such a good job for us. I've seen production from Amoo, but perhaps not as consistently as Jeno. I think Amoo can get there though, although I think Browne and perhaps Rodney will put him under pressure for a spot this season. Let's see how he copes with increased competition. As for the strikers, it'll be interesting to see what Vale do there. I think they've gone quite far down the line of making the point that we're interested in a striker, for it to be some kind of Jordan Archer hit or miss prospect. So i think given we haven't made a 'big splash' signing I think we could be doing that with the striker. I like the idea of Pitman for sure, always looked a quality player. But he's never played north of Bristol, so would he make the move to us? I hope he'd be interested! Quite what that means for Pope/Cullen if such a signing was made I have no idea. It would certainly be a tough call for Askey to pick one!
  3. Episode 11 is out now! The latest news from Vale Park as the new season is less than 6 weeks away and the players return to training! We discuss what Vale Park might be like for fans after Colin Garlick spoke this week, Askey making sure the players know what is expected of them and our final opponents for 2020/21 are confirmed. Then we get stuck in to the 2nd part of our squad review, this week looking at the midfielders, wingers and strikers with contributions from fans as well! I think we mentioned everyone who replied on here! Please subscribe and pass on to your friends!

  4. We're just planning the pod for recording on Sunday. We're reviewing the Midfield/Wingers/Strikers this time around and looking for some one-word descriptions for each of the players under contract for those positions. Reply below with an answer and we'll read the best ones out on the pod! Here is the list: Midfield Luke Joyce Emmanuel Oyeleke Tom Conlon Scott Burgess Daniel Trickett-Smith Alex Hurst Wingers Rhys Browne David Amoo David Worrall Strikers Devante Rodney Mark Cullen Tom Pope
  5. Yes all good mate, certainly as well as can hope! I'll be using this thread to run questions through for the upcoming podcasts so people can interact on here, as well as Facebook and Twitter. I love OVF and like you spent many a hour (or day!) on here over the years until one forum member ruined it for everyone for a while. Glad I'm back on here and hope we can add some extra debate to OVF, as it's a great place to have a discussion about the Vale. RobF is plugging the pod, so we're trying to plug OVF in return.
  6. Ah cheers Rob, great to hear from you! I hope you and the family are well. You've basically nailed what we're trying to do, and I'm glad it's rekindled your passion in any way. It will be great to get your opinions on what's happening at the club. We're hoping to get more fan interaction going as the season nears, on here and other forms of social media. I hope you will be a part of it!
  7. We're back with Episode 10! We go through the latest news for Vale, with a start date for next season, the Tom Pope disciplinary outcome and who’d we would like to win the National League play-off final. Then we’re in to our big interview with ex-Vale and all-round top bloke Louis Dodds. Nothing is off limits here and we discuss among other things: - His 1st season and the turmoil on and off the field - Jim Gannon and the Accrington toilets - The 2012/2013 season, from Dave Artell leaving, the Fleetwood goal and the amazing dressing room - How and why he left in 2016 - His return in 2019 and how it worked with Neil Aspin Doddsy also shares yet again his world famous train impression! What’s not to like?! Please subscribe and pass on to your friends! If you have any thoughts on the items we discuss, please reply to us on here and we're happy to debate!
  8. Episode 9 is out now! We have a quick chat about the Zak Mills signing and how it impacts the defence. Then we're in to a chat with Port Vale cult hero Peter Swan who talks about his time at Vale, whether he was laughing when he cleared Dave Regis' shot off the line, and whether Robbie Williams knows his own bank balance. As long as you don't mind a bit of swearing, it's not to be missed! Please subscribe and pass on to your friends!
  9. I would say what's more concerning about it all is, teams that make the Premier League and have been established for several years (Southampton for example) are losing money. What's the point in getting there and then getting in to financial difficulty? I find the top two leagues a strange world, well away from what I consider to be proper football.
  10. Episode 8 is out now! It's the 3 of us this week. It's been a surprisingly busy week at the Vale so we cover the news including: - Nathan Smith signing a new deal! - New Signing Alert! Devante Rodney - News of the new season start date We then have a quick chat about the Player of the Year and Goal of the Season awards (Spoiler - We didn't all choose Tom Pope's at Man City) After that we go in to the first part of the squad review ahead of the 2020/2021 season (Whenever it happens). We go through the keepers and defenders on the books, and whether we need to strengthen. Please subscribe and pass on to your friends! If you have any thoughts on the items we discuss, please reply to us on here and we're happy to debate!
  11. We're just having a discussion in the virtual 'Ale and the Vale' office (Social distancing of many miles applies) about goal of the season and player of the season. Bezza and Jonny have gone for Popey at Man City for goal of the season. I've thought Jake Taylor at Leyton Orient. Luke Joyce was the pick for me and Jonny for player of the year. Bezza has chosen Wozza. Any thoughts? We'll read the best ones out on the next pod!
  12. Thanks, I will pass it on! I'm sure it used be Dave F who had this username, is that still the case?
  13. Episode 7 is out now! Bezza's played a blinder and managed to get Carol Shanahan, Port Vale Chairwoman to come on for an extended chat! We cover many topics including: - How she got hooked on the Vale - Culture of the club - The financial situation at Vale and in football as a whole - The future of the club - The fantastic work the club and foundation have done during the pandemic It's downloadable from the usual places (Apple, Google, Spotify Podcasts).

  14. Hi mate, we have thought about it but my sound editing skills are in their infancy so I need to work out how to do that at some point! I think I have worked it out but now it's finding the right tune. We were thinking about asking if there's anyone listening who fancies coming up with a tune? I can say we've got a pretty big guest this week that we're prepping for, and then I think we might put it up as a thing, either mentioning it on the pod, or on here, Facebook and Twitter. Cheers for the feedback, we really appreciate it as we're trying to get better!
  15. Episode 6 out now! Just the 3 of us this week! We explain how we know each other, and why it's really my fault that we're mates. Then in to the weeks news with L2 playoffs, Nathan Smith and whether you should be able to have a beer in the stands all being discussed. It's downloadable from the usual places (Apple, Google, Spotify Podcasts). You can also listen at https://aleandthevale.podbean.com Please subscribe on your podcast platform and pass on to your mates. The podcast is growing and growing and we're grateful to Rob on OVF for the help he's offered!
