  1. The Cheltenham preview is up! No Bezza, so we quickly chat about statistics and how things look for Vale on that score. Then we delve in to Cheltenham, a team that had some great battles with Vale last year. They've started well, but can Vale put back to back wins together? We also reveal that we'll be interviewing an ex-Vale player this week. Find out who on the pod! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts (Plus many more).

  2. Yes he was a bit spiky yesterday! I like having a debate with Jonny because I know we see things differently. That's part of the reason I suggested doing the pod with him! At the end of the day, an improved performance will eventually lead to better results which is what we saw today. I hope after 10 games theres another 6 points on that total. It'll make that table much easier to look at after 10 games. I think you use Montano for games where we want to be on the front foot, Fitzpatrick when you're going to be more defensive. Great we have those options, just need the performance
  3. Oldham review is up! A win away at Oldham! A much better performance led to a victory. A strong performance from the returning David Amoo was a big plus, along with some fine efforts across the board. Is this a springboard for the season? Stu, Jonny and Bez discuss! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts (Plus many more). Also here https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  4. The Oldham preview is up! Injury news and cardboard cutouts organised by SVA to support the Foundation on the news items, along with whether it's unwarranted for Askey to be getting criticised for how Vale have started the season. After that we get in to the Oldham, with some lively debate on whether we're desperate for points at this stage. Let us know what you think! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts (Plus many more). Also here https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  5. I totally agree we should be getting more out of them. I think we're a playoff team and aren't playing like it currently. I'd like to get us to the end of October and see where we are after that. 10 games is usually a good marker as to how we're doing.
  6. I think so too. I'll discuss it with the lads and see what we can do. Appreciate the feedback!
  7. Possibly true. We're not good at that. Askey has us playing hard but honest. It seems unlikely we have the players to change tack. Thanks for listening by the way!
  8. I don't think that's the case if I'm honest. The Harrogate/Morecambe/Carlisle review pods are a clear indicator that we will be constructively critical where necessary, and sometimes overly harsh. Nowt to do with Carol, we have no affiliation with the club beyond being supporters. I tend to be more patient around things, the other two not so much as it turns out. Perhaps they toned it down as I wasn't there last night. I don't think injuries are an excuse. Yep, got some players missing but the players are fit enough to win matches. Cambridge are doing well this season, I wasn't sur
  9. Just Jonny and Bez for a Cambridge review! A 3-1 defeat. Did you see good signs from the performance? Trevor Kettle was his usual self with some baffling decisions throughout the match as ever! Did Askey leave it late for subs? The lads stay honest but positive! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts (Plus many more). Also here https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  10. Whilst I agree that referees have often been the scapegoat at Vale Park, I can't honestly go down the route than they don't make incorrect game changing decisions. Because they do. Referees get blamed for soft penalties, when in fact the fault should often be with the defender for getting himself in a position where a referee can blow for a penalty (Brisley v Morecambe the other week for example). I get that, but you must have seen Trevor Kettle referee over the years. It's the weird pattern of behaviour that should be looked at. I've been at games he's reffed where we've been at t
  11. A quick(ish) preview of the Cambridge game. Stu, Jonny and Bezza discuss if any changes are required with the games coming thick and fast, and why are Cambridge doing so well?
  12. A happier pod this Saturday after beating Salford! Montano's late winner was a beauty. Did Vale deserve the win, who stood out? Back to 4-4-2 next week?! Hear Stu, Jonny and Bezza talk through the game! Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts (Plus many more). Also here https://aleandthevale.podbean.com
  13. The Salford Preview is up! We first talk about 'Project Big Picture' and how it would have affected Vale. Then Dan Trickett-Smith's departure on loan and the new revenue stream at Vale Park. After that, it's a Salford preview. They are managerless but have plenty of quality. How do you think the game will go? Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts (Plus many more).

  14. This, but Santa is better with words than me.
  15. I think the first half was ok, not great. We played to a level where should be able to push on at half time. But the penalty miss and I think the formation played a part. When you go a goal down, you can faith that the 4-3-3 has worked before when they've been losing, so they could get back into it. Did they have the same faith in the 4-4-2 system? Who knows, but I definitely think the formation was a big factor in why we lost. My 'go-to' would be that the players are to blame if they don't play well, but I think they were put in a tough situation on Saturday. I think the crowd is
