  1. You're right. We need to fight for survival.
  2. I tend to agree. The manager criteria set by Carol and Pugh not interested in the job statements are the biggest issue. Every manager linked or appointed questions will remain "How do they fit the criteria?" and we all know Pugh certainly doesn't as he is no experience to measure against it. Look at the managers in the betting and how many fit all of the criteria? To be honest I think they have dug themselves in a hole where there will be a population of unhappy fans whoever they go with. I really think though regardless of covid pressures the manager is the most important person t
  3. Thanks,I had no idea who that was. At first I thought it was a mock up of an old Micheal Owen in Scotland shirt which didn't make sense in this thread. Now it does. Thanks
  4. After the 22 man final squad is handed in today I would pay up the contracts (cashflow allowing) of those players whose contracts expire in the summer to keep them away. You can't have pro's training and not playing - its no good for squad harmony.
  5. Very interesting one that. Also Marcus Maddison signing for Bolton.
  6. I really hope thats untrue. Will be very unhappy with McGreal. When will we realise we need to invest in manager? FFS Makes me think the club are desperate to get a few results with Pugh and hand him the job until the end of the season. That was clearly plan a/ until we had some dodgy results and performances whilst he was isolating for covid.
  7. I like Blakeman's excitement when he commentates. The scouser who filled in for Bowers commentated one of our home games I thought was excellent as he just described the action -can't remember which game. Bowers is OK when he sticks to the match rather than rambling on about how his goalkeeping for RS ,wrestling or Star Wars.One thing I really like about him is he is a genuine Vale fan. I don't rate the pundits to be honest. Sproey makes sense sometimes but can't pronounce players names and shows far too much bias towards his own players. Yates bugs me the way he keeps referring to
  8. Colin Garlick confirmed on RS will definitely get one more player in upfront before window closes.Assuming he was talking about loan for Will Swan. Gave little away about the manager only quoting Carol's with "speed not haste" strap line. I got the impression they where not close to making an appointment or announcement.
  9. To be a little mischievous does anyone think Cowley has had a hand in this signing?
  10. Announcement at 5:30.... player signing.
  11. I know what you mean however at some point we have to give Crookes a run of games at CB to see if he will be good enough to play in the 1st team. Having said that we definitely need another CB.
  12. I wonder if our new manager is involved in trying to find a centre back?
  13. I hope that suggests we have another CB lined up.
  14. Didn't know that. Its a <ovf censored> rule.
  15. It might be against conventional wisdom on here but I do hope we can offload Legge and Cullen. To me both players will just be a drain on resources. I would also re-register Robinson with a young loan striker signing too. Not heard any rumours about CB which is a little concerning although I'm sure Sproey is working hard to find one for us.😀 Expecting a few players to be realised from contracts this week so maybe an opportunity for an experienced pro somewhere after the transfer deadline.
  16. Going to be interesting day on Monday. New manager announced and I would expect some movement in our squad. Legge almost a dead cert to leave due to his drop off in performance and contract situation. I think maybe one or two others may also leave. I'm a little concerned about our options up front. With Pope injured long term and Robinson de-registered only leaves Cullen as a back-up to Guthrie.
  17. Huge win with a good 1st performance professionally seen out 2nd half. Only disappointment goal conceded but to single out Rodney for it is wrong. Yes he made the wrong decision and gave the ball away but Mills has shown the player inside standing too far away from him(we have seen this form Mills all season) and Joyce has not closed the space down when he came inside. Its basic defending where we have given to much space to shoot. Overall good display lots we should be positive about. Rodney was unplayable 1st half. Guthrie was excellent target man. Taylor look more
  18. Same as you which is why I'm not comparing records to say why not manager x or y.
  19. You're assuming Adams wants to become Port Vale manager. No point comparing records of people who didn't apply or want the job. I saw you posted before he was interested in Bradford but it doesn't mean he is interested in us and things have moved on in terms of the season for Morecambe since then.
  20. I'm sure the players will know tomorrow when they arrive at the ground and are told two things -: 1/ Your new manager is watching you in the stand so you need to impress him today. 2/ Keep your mouth shut and don't disclose who until after the press conference on Monday.
  21. Won't be John McGreal he doesn't tick all of Carol's boxes... I think he would have been close.
  22. To be fair that's exactly what we need to steady the ship and hopefully get out this league as soon as possible.
  23. I know Bury fans who where very complementary how they played under Flitcroft. When we played Mansfield under him I thought they passed the ball around nice without looking too much of a goal threat. I will be fairly happy with him... not as flash as others names banded about but he does have a decent managerial record. I think he is pretty no nonsense too which we certainly need.
