  1. Final Vale preview now available! We are joined by friends of the show, Sentinel & SOT Live report Michael Baggaley and our sponsor Inplayman to look at the weeks news and preview the Vale squad. We go through the latest happenings at Vale Park with the pre-season friendly v Sheffield Wednesday, ticket sales and more potential signings amongst the topics. We speak to Matt from Inplayman (and big Vale fan!) to discuss changing up our weekly tip for the season. He's got some season bets for anyone interested too! And then the 5 of us discuss the squad and where it is a week out from the season starting. Are we better or worse than last year in each department? The league 2 predictor comp has got bigger as well! Thanks to Super Vale Abroad we will now be giving away a 2022/2023 shirt of the winner's choice, and thanks to Inplayman there's also a 50 quid amazon voucher in the prize fund, to go with the 3 pints we've offered! To join in the comp, simply send us your top 7 (in order) and your bottom 2 (in order) predictions for League 2 this season either on here, Twitter or Facebook. Scoring works as follows, if you get the team's predicted league finish spot on, you get 0 points, if you are 3 places out, you get 3 penalty points. The person with the lowest penalty points wins! We'll keep track over the season! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com And if you are going to have a bet, with some of Inplayman's tips, only bet what you can afford to lose!
  2. Cheers mate! I think that's a fair assumption too. Lots of players you are know are going to put a shift in, which has obviously been top of the matrix this summer in terms of requirements. We need either one player to just completely break out and play way above what we've seen before, or everyone to play 15-20% above what we've previously seen. Both of those are possible, but it's also fair to say that this won't happen. I agree I can't see us playing near the bottom. When we did the pod, we went pretty deep into what the other teams have done and where they are. I feel confident we won't be in a mess come the end of the season. I feel like I think that every year though!
  3. Pretty much my thoughts as well Joe. Playing 3 at the back will suit us and Vale Park. No team in this league is going in to the season 100% sure about every position, I don't think Vale are too far behind the leaders. We just need a few things to go our way. I think we're due a bit of good fortune!
  4. I think Rodney will push on this season. He showed enough potential in a struggling side to show that if he can build on his raw potential then he can grab goals and assist others. Also, I think James Wilson is a good footballer and it's time for him to get settled somewhere and bang them in. I do think we look light if one of those gets injured however. They should be well served from Conlon, Pett, Worrall etc. I don't we'll be scoring for fun, but if we can stop them going in the other end, we've got a good chance of finishing in the playoffs. Why not?
  5. Nope, that has backfired on us quickly! I can't see how the club can keep him on, if found guilty. I'm sure Bristol Rovers would claim to be a family club, so probably can't tolerate this. Yep for sure Barton is a gamble. My thoughts on him are that he's (excluding the current situation) probably made every mistake you could ever make as a footballer, and yet still managed to have a good career because of his commitment and his attitude at the training ground and on the pitch. Dyche always talked highly of him as a player and a person when he was at Burnley. High praise in my opinion.
  6. I think that’s fair. Certainly from my perspective, I really like Barton as a manager and he should right the ship quickly. I expect them to be a bit like Bolton, without the big early season disaster.
  7. We're back with our way too early League 2 Preview Extravaganza!!!!!! We're joined by Daily Star reporter and avid Valiant Alex Wood to look at the weeks news, including Tom Pope staying local, a new kit and interesting interviews with David Flitcroft and Darrell Clarke. Then we try to go around League Two in 48 minutes (ish - More like 66!) We've doing our 1-24 predictions, combined them and count down from our predicted 24th place team all the way down to our champions! Including some players to watch, manager ratings and our 'surprise packages'! Alex's national football knowledge certainly helps!

  8. We're back! We wrap up our summer with the Euro's done. We talk about the signings that have happened since we last spoke, and how we think it all looks now we're nearing a full squad. Jonny and Bez have seem some friendly action so we get some thoughts on that. Stu finishes up with a discussion about Vale's 2019/2020 accounts that have come out in the past week! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  9. Summer signings part 2 out now! We're back with another pod to wrap up latest events. We talk through the Euros so far, the new kit, keeper signings and fixtures! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  10. Shhh, don't let Jonny think he's thought of something good.
  11. It's a fair point. I'm guess some of the Class of 92 lads knew about him from United but for whatever reason isn't Gary Bowyer's cup of tea. However, there are plenty of players that haven't shone at one place and then gone on to do it elsewhere (Pope, but obviously was a Vale fan which I'm sure does make a difference). There's obviously a player in Wilson, perhaps we can get it out of him at Vale.
  12. Summer Signings Part 1 available now! The boredom finally kicked in, so we caught up with the latest news from Vale Park. A new contract for Conlon, we retain Crosby as our Assistant Manager and 5 new signings all discussed! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  13. Didn't Tudor retire from professional football at Vale? I seem to remember he did, or shortly after at an early age.
  14. Ian Taylor podcast is available! It's the summer break but that doesn't mean that we don't have a bit of content to share! We spoke to Ian Taylor a few weeks back and what a great evening we had! We talk about everything from his start in football, how he was out of pocket moving to Vale and a typical Billy Bell story from the start! Then onto his career at Vale and his subsequent million pound move to Sheffield Wednesday before his dream was realised as he signed for Aston Villa. A great hour and a half with a top man. Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  15. Cheers MBE/Powerline for the nice messages! Always great to get Mike and Phil on! What do people reckon to a round table pre-season preview with those guys?
