  1. Yep I thought he was great. Good to see so many things we discuss coming in to games!
  2. Colchester Review! A review of an excellent performance at home to Colchester. Goals from Gibbons, Wilson and Martin keep the good form going! Talking points about pace, Smith and Gibbo as well as 3 different picks for Man of the Match. A happy place to be after a great game! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts.

  3. Colchester Preview! We're joined by friend of the show Andy (aka Santa on OVF) to look back at the week just gone. We discuss if we've been found out a little bit and need to change things up and whether Rodney deserves to go straight back in with Proctor likely out for a while. We then look at the Colchester game. It looks like a great game to get back on track for Vale, with Colchester languishing in 19th position. What do you think?

  4. Yep for me, it was Conlon who looks to get bottled up the most. Then to a lesser extent Worrall and Pett. I wouldn't include Garrity in that conversation. For me, you can get round the opposition zeroing in on specific players by the others stepping up and using the space they've been afforded. It's happened in some games, and then not in others. You make a good point about the wingbacks. I've said before that if you don't get those two attacking early they easily get pushed back in to more of a full back role and we lose some attacking edge. It's incredibly important that the wingbacks set their stall out early in the games. Does anyone else have anything to add on the thought that teams are now more wise to how we want to play, and how they stop us from playing? I'll pick the best stuff up for tomorrow's pod.
  5. Mansfield Review! A point gained on the road rather than 2 lost as a fantastic following at Field Mill see Vale have an off-form evening at Mansfield. We talk through the positives - Tom Pett, Covolan penalty save and a superb free-kick from Tom Conlon. And cover the not-so-goods as well. Apologies for the sound quality, normal service will resume on Friday! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  6. Barrow Review! A come from behind victory at Vale Park. Plenty of character and strength shown, as well as tactical nous as we go in down at half time but score 3 in the second half to cap a fine victory. Plenty of debate about the performances involved. Followed up by a quick preview of the Mansfield game on Tuesday. They're on a terrible run of form, but beat us convincingly both times last year. Is this the moment to turn the screw on an already under the pressure team? Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  7. Barrow Preview! Loads to talk about this week. Whitehead, Askey, Leicester friendly all on the menu. Then Barrow, who are not too far behind us and are on a good run. Do you we stick with the way we're doing things or switch it up a bit? Let us know! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  8. I think at the end of the day, individual performances were down as the team didn't quite get it right. I thought like you say, there were some decent performances in there but too many off days that was reflected in the scoreline. Not that I thought we played terribly, but we weren't the same side for some reason after we went 2 up. I also had Rodney down as the other main name out the door if things went well. I hope he comes back strong from his recent absence. He really is a quality player that can destroy teams when he's on it.
  9. I would agree, if we hadn't lost!
  10. Sutton Review! An off day for the Vale as karma hits and we fall to a late defeat at Gander Green Lane. Plenty to discuss in the game and some inconsistent performances to go. And what was the referee on?! Apologies for the sound quality from Jonny, who sounds like he was on the Moon when we recorded! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  11. Sutton United Preview! We're talking Manager of the Month, other awards and a Rochdale Pizza game this week. Then into Sutton, who have won 4 out of their last 5 and have some dangerous ex-vale players on the books. A full contingent of Vale fans heading to a new ground this weekend. Will it be Vale marching on, or will Sutton get in and stop the charge? Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  12. I thought it would be my 'erms' that would be the focal point of the game!
  13. It's felt like that for about 20 odd years hasn't it?!
