  1. I thought it was Bolton, but I'll put the question to him.
  2. I'll be chatting to David Riley in a day or two. We're going back a few years but if you've got any memories, questions etc you'd like me to bring up, go ahead. UTV
  3. Dean Stoles spills the beans in his time at the Wembley of the North in issue 123 of the Vale Park Beano, out tomorrow. Plus, we look at the phrase 'Always Play To The End', a Swindon based Vale supporter writes about Dirty Harry, DC is PC, memories of Jinkin'John , and loads, loads more in this jam packed end of season issue - but there's no jam! However:- Free with every copy - a 'Port Vale Supporters Stand with Ukraine' A5 size poster in blue/yellow on semi gloss card, free with every copy of VPB123. Politics isn't our thing, but just about everyone is talking about the awful events in Ukraine and as their President asked everyone to 'show a symbol of Ukraine' we did our best to oblige. Large A4 posters are also available at £1, with every single £1 going to the Red Cross Ukraine Appeal. Here's to 3 points and defeat for that murderous Tw At in the Krumblin. See you tomorrow. UTV.

    Issue 122 of the Vale Park Beano will be on sale on Saturday. Another jam packed issue, Andy Jones concludes his story, we look at and actually list Vale's incredible claim to have beaten every other league club - except one, a Tony Boult tribute, Behind the Scenes with Carol & Kev, Cricket bloody cricket, Tales of the Unexpected, a look back to the John Jeffers interview, and loads more. Still a quid. UTV! PS. A few Port Vale beer mats are still available.
  5. Was quite surprised when I looked up the facts n figures that coming from non league he then played 74 games for Vale in the First Division.
  6. I'll be chatting to Dean Stokes later, has anyone got any questions, memories of games,messages etc? Happy to put them to him.
  7. Why aren't there any Port Vale beer mats, we wondered? So we found a manufacturer and a designer and hey presto we're giving one away with each copy of VPB121. One side has the Port Vale badge, the other features Robbie, both sides in full colour. Also we've a copy of Conrad's new book 'It's Nice To Know You're Here' to give away. Not forgetting all the usual stuff - Andy Jones, John Jeffers last interview, The Manager of the Month Curse, and loads and loads of other stuff. Still a quid. UTV
  8. Andy continues his fascinating interview in VPB120- on sale tomorrow. Plus we revisit an interview with the legendary John Jeffers from 2002 with some added snippets plus loads and loads of other Vale stuff including Robbie & Me, New Manager Bounce, Frost Report, Behinf the Scenes with Carol & Kevin, Bill & Ben etc etc. Still a quid. UTV.
  9. Andy Jones gives a revealing interview in the latest edition of the Vale Park Beano, on sale tomorrow. A fun packed issue including Tales of Old Burslem, Behind the Scenes with Carol & Kevin, Sympathetic Solutions, Popey, Things That Have disappeared Since Our last Issue, We Wuz Robbed and loads, loads more. Still a quid. UTV
  10. I spent a cople of hours with him a few years ago for an interview. He really was a nice guy with fond memories of the Vale - he wasn't so fond of Big John McGrath though. Another sad loss. Thanks for the memories Ernie, RIP.
  11. Very sorry to hear this. Chris was a popular, long term contributor to the Vale Park Beano. He had a brilliant memory and his articles were always spot on. Such a loss. RIP mate and as always UTV!
