  1. As much as I would love to see Norwood coming to Vale as a short term option to cover the injuries we've now got to our two main front men, DC puts a lot of emphasis on character - so would he fit within that ethos, given the comments on his off the field issues? just to add, I don't think we'll have any chance of getting him given his current wages but we may have held some funds back ready for January to invest depending on where we are, to try to push us on to gain Play Offs at the minimum.
  2. I re-watched the highlights a couple of times and you could see exactly how it was rehearsed. Watch Gibbo closely, Martin is behind him but Gibbo is watching his owner marker as well as Martins..........as the ball is played, Gibbo runs straight into both markers to block them following Martin running on the outside of him............shithousery of the highest quality.....@Joe B will be very, very impressed.
  3. I think Burgess would be a good midfield backup and strikes me as having the right type of attitude, although he is lightweight. I guess it depends on the type of formations DC plans to play as it could mean despite all his hard work to impress, he may never get a look in.
  4. I'm awaiting Doho's response to this - will no doubt have me stitches
  5. I've never seen Tshimanga play, although I've heard many of good word about him (mainly on here) - He seems the perfect kind of target that Peterborough go for and given there past record in fine tuning strikers to get them bigger moves, I couldn't see us competing with them. I know they've just gone to the Championship but I don't think that will see them throw out their model. I would be shocked if we signed him but very pleasantly surprised
  6. caveat***this is not a rumour and purely just for debate on the type of signing I'd like to see: Darnell Johnson 22 year old primarily CB but can play RB, released from Leicester. He had two spells in league one last year with two struggling sides (Wigan and then Wimbledon). From reading his interviews, his attitude appears right - he wanted to learn and develop at EFL clubs - he wasn't content with just sitting in a big club reserves. He has made 22 appears in league one, so whilst minimal in terms of experience, it mitigates some of the risk of signing a fresh faced player from premier academies. Could it be that we're in for this Johnson, rather than Ryan Johnson of Hartlepool. Onto the link - as I say, there is absolutely nothing to suggest we're in for him but he is the God son of Emile Heskey - Heskey praised Carol and the Club, so he could put in a good word 🙂
  7. With the Bruno era I think we could all see from the start of the season that it was going to eventually come crashing down at some point. We picked up results but I’m not sure how, as we were truly awful in most games and getting overran on most occasions. I imagine scouting us for the start of the season would also have played a part - as we were a pure unknown.
