  1. Cracking post and fully agree. But I also think at the same time given the money that has been spent there needs to be positive signs on the pitch to give people hope. Last season was a an absolute car crash for everyone involved. Hopefully lessons have been learned and the good times are on there way back. But ultimately we are there to watch( hopefully!! 🙏🙏) the product on the pitch. I feel we are in a far better position than we were but ultimately know one really knows until a competitive ball is kicked. Carol and Kevin deserve some luck. They haven’t had any since taking over but have faced everything head on and are such a credit to port vale. We are very lucky to have them as owners.
  2. I’m not so sure on Taylor. Average at best with a few glimpses of potential since he resigned. Was good on loan but that’s gone now. He struggled fo get in a poor vale team last season jury is our for him this season. Needs a huge improvement else he could get left behind.
  3. Means nothing. Would happily lose all friendlys. Not sure why people get wrapped up in them so much.
  4. I think if anything this squad is going to be highly competitive. All of them will need to be on top form else they will be out. Can only be a good thing.
  5. Or he has told them he’s not signing already... as you say this is the sort of player we need to pick up. Still a chancer but has a bit of consistency about performances which is often missing in lower league football.
  6. I think your safe matey but would be a laugh for a good cause
  7. Don’t know you but as a fellow vale fan do it for charity and I’ll happily donate. Plus I’ll bring my own custard pie 😂
  8. Personally I’d argue that we weren’t really much cop early on. The signs were certainly there early on with the defensive frailties.
  9. It is a dreadful finish but... we have been excellent for the last month or so but this for me is a huge reminder that a lot of these players ain’t good enough. No sentiment shown to any of these players at all and this performance today should ensure it doesn’t happen. Good luck to all those that will be leaving. No hard feelings as such just football and you haven’t been good enough collectively or individually.
  10. Can’t say I will be disappointed and if we get 10k for him then we have done ok. May be a good player but sadly never on the pitch enough. If true wish him all the best for the future except for against us if they get promoted!
  11. I think he is a bit of a Bennett type player. In terms that he keeps knocking about club to club but never really achieving potential. This season has been one of his better ones but the lad is 27 and hasn’t really pulled up any trees. Watched the Morecambe and Southend game and their commentators kept saying “looks like he has his head on tonight” which would suggest he blows hot and cold.
  12. 6 games is admirable. And while I am grateful for the players efforts over the last few month to get us out of a mess we must be ruthless. Sentiment is not afforded in football any more.
  13. Certainly has. Also played 3 different positions now for the cause. If we had 11 smiths we wouldn’t have an issue. Was well below par for first part of the season but who wasn’t. Never one to shy away. 100% with him every game. Sad that he has been singled out by some for stick but the game is about opinions and everyone has the right to one I guess.
  14. Yep now is the time to try and build the buzz for next season. Well done all involved for getting us over the line. We are certainly hard to beat now. Rode our luck a bit today too but the only stat that matters at the end of every day is in our favour again. Credit where it’s due to Morecambe are a decent side so we earned it today with hard graft.
