  1. Mike Baggaley & SOT Live on Twitter saying we’re after Jake Taylor & Mitch Clark although competition expected. The connected article seems to imply a loan deal although it mentions our previous bids for JT.
  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52679614
  3. Gutted to hear this - I worked with John in my first year in teaching at what was then Chell High School. He was respected as a teacher and he was kind and supportive to me, knowing that I was a Vale fan. It was a delight and an honour to play in the staff team with him. He will be sadly missed. My condolences to him and his family.
  4. Watched a German news report on ZDF last night and there's talk of the Bundesliga starting up behind closed doors, with everybody connected to the game getting a COVID-19 test before taking part. They than ran an opinion piece on this and the two main complaints were 1. Why should footballers etc get privilege on testing when many key-workers can't (and that's in Germany where there's more testing than in the UK) 2. The fear that fans will turn up outside stadiums.
  5. Taken from the top tier of the Colin Bell stand because i coudn't get a ticket for the away end due to certain people buying in bulk - that moment when you have to meet the bloke you've slagged off on Twitter:
  6. UV said new = in addition to.
  7. Great idea - if there aren’t many takers, no financial loss - if there are lots, then potential new young fans are hooked. Publicity options are golden too...
  8. I'm getting this error on all the IOS apps.(Tapatalk and OVF app)
  9. The best thing for me about last night was listening to the French commentary (I was in a hotel in Strasbourg) which confirmed that ‘Ello ‘Ello wasn’t far off the truth - Harree Mag-wee-yah, Marcoos Rochéfort and Djordan On-deer-sone were on the pitch apparently (Notice I didn’t say “played”. That would be pushing it).
  10. St Pauli have some link or partnership with Stoke don’t they? Despite that they’re a working class club in a well-graffitied part of the city. Lots of good non-touristy bars in that area. Don’t know much about HSV apart from they’re the bigger club in the city. The main touristy areas around the Reeperbahn and Große Freiheit are very tacky and seedy. Lots of dodgy blokes wanting you rip you off. I liked the Altona area - away from all the tackiness but plenty to do. Worth getting a S-Bahn travel card for unlimited travel for the duration of your stay.

    Good Book Thread

    ‘The Romanovs: 1613-1918,’ by Simon Sebag Montefiore‘ - very much a "kings and queens" approach to history which I don't like as a historical approach, but entertaining at the start and the early middle and at the very end. Gets a bit rambling post Catherine the Great. Proper door-stop of a book. 'In Montmartre - Sue Roe' - the shenanigans of Picasso et al in the early part of the twentieth century.
  12. Unofficial Vale said a L1 striker had been offered to Askey that would please fans. I guessed Leon Best and they said no. I guessed Lionel Ainsworth and UV liked my post. Sounded only like the player had been offered by an agent, nothing more.
  13. If anyone has access to this, it would presumably be revealed - https://www.thepfa.com/recruitment/transfer-list/using-the-pfa-transfer-list
