  1. Lucas, along with Benning, was sitting half a dozen seats away from me in the main stand at Tranmere. He should at least have been on the bench, as he is the best keeper at the club. He is prone to the odd rush of blood, maybe it's a Brazilian thing, look at Allison, he does the odd crazy thing but is still arguably the best keeper in the Prem. Didn't Gibbo say a while back, that the reason that Vale could press so high was due to Lucas.

  2. Definitely NOT! It would be interesting to know what his claimed exemption is. It obviously doesn't impress the Australian government. He has choice in not taking the vaccine but must realise that their are consequences. Every country has their own rules and f you don't follow them you aren't gonna be allowed in. If he thinks this is tough wait till he attempts to enter the US.

    I see that Bayern Munich are not going to pay any non vaccinated player if they catch Covid!

  3. Eoin Doyle looks pretty likely to leave Bolton during January according to Ian Evatt's latest comments. He is admitting that talks have been held with interested clubs but the most likely move to Ireland has hit a snag with the length of Doyle's contract at Bolton. They are obviously looking for a decent fee which could put off the Irish club as well as Vale for an almost 34 year old. His chances of starting are probably going to be pretty limited after Bolton signed Dion Charles.

  4. Manchester Evening News reporting that Eoin Doyle is likely to leave Bolton on a free in January. Seems like he may be going to St Patrick's Athletic in Ireland on a three year deal. Might be worth trying to persuade him to give it another couple of years in L2 before finishing his career in his home country. Certainly a proven scorer at our level.

  5. What have you people got against klopp? Have you not seen the touchline antics of Tuchel, Guardiola, Arteta, Conte etc. Klopp is a great manager and has kept Liverpool at the top of the Prem without the bottomless pit that City and Chelsea have.

  6. Peter Swan - Lots of interesting Vale stuff 

    Steve Clarrdge - Sleeping on the floor at the bookies because he was skint and turning up for training in one black and one brown shoe because that was all he had! The part about John Beck's long ball tactics at Cambridge are interesting also!





  7. I suppose the majority on hear would say I'm being pedantic but England did not NOT lose last night. After 120 minutes of football the match finished as a draw. I would argue that the penalties after the match finished, were to decide who would hold the trophy for the next four years, and whoever "won" the shootout (lottery,) should be called joint European Champions and Euro Penalty Champions. Penalty shootouts are a ridiculous way of deciding a three week long championship. A golden goal with a player from each team being withdrawn every five or so minutes, makes a win much more valid. I would argue that shootouts only have any value in knock-out games and semi-finals, but in a final as the last game, it's a completely false way of deciding a winner. The whole competition came down to to a single penalty and triggered massive disappointment to all fans, as well as soul searching, racial abuse and violence as well as giving three young men an undeserved millstone to carry around for the rest of their career. This isn't just because England lost, I would feel the same if we had won the shootout. I'll now get my tin hat

  8. Fantastic performance from Mark today equalling Eddie Merck's record of 34 Tour de France stage wins. Vertually everybody connected to Cycling never believed that anyone would ever get close to Merck's record. Mark has a good chance of breaking the record with stages still available for the sprinter's over the remaining days of the tour. A single stage win in the Tour de France is the highlight of most pro cyclist's career and to win 34 stages of the arguably the world toughest race is stunning. Arise Sir Mark?

  9. I see that Sunderland have released Max Power. Always liked him at Tranmere, only 27 with loads of league one experience. Probably out of reach for us regarding wages, but the sort of player to improve the team, if we could stretch the budget! Also captain at Sunderland so another potential leader on the pitch!

  10. It seems that Dominic Cummings bolt hole in Durham was built in a conservation area without planning permission. Also it's not registered for Council Tax. Apparently Durham Council are investigating! More rules that don't apply to him?

  11. My wife has recently had three eye operations and was finally discharged last week. Amazingly her surgeon didn't suggest her driving 30 miles to test her sight! Good job really as I didn't have a potentially sick child available to go with her. The sooner Cummings goes the better. Johnson has to show some leadership and get rid and do some work himself, instead of relying on Cummings running the country while he slopes off for another of his frequent brakes!
