Ex-players - Unappreciated at Vale but went on to much better things

Milija Alexsic, just 2 FA Cup games with Vale, then free transfer to Eastwood. Progressed via Plymouth and Luton to a FA Cup Winners medal with Spurs. Jaw broken in a clash with Joe Jordan, Glenn Hoddle deputised in goal for him, those were the days.

Jordan Hughill couldn’t make the team more often than not despite us being crap, now look, he’s just been sold for £9 million. Agree, with Calvin Andrew as well, got some unfair stick when he was with us.

One that springs to mind is Leon Constantine, scores 28 goals in a season then gets hounded out by a section of fans.28 goal a season strikers are like rocking horse **** nowadays.

I don't think he went on to great things but I always rated Tony Rougier very highly when he was here. I can't recall if he was one of Rudge's last signings or maybe a Horton buy but I thought he was an excellent player for us.

I remember being at Forest for an away game once and one of their fans said something like "He's the best player on the pitch"- and he was. Never got the best out of him from memory but in the short time he was here he was a firm favourite for me.
