According to unofficial vale, Shaun Brisley is training with us

29 years old and 6ft 2 according to the ever reliable height chart that is wiki.

Some of our more special characters will be focused on the fact he played for Macc but that was back in 2012.

Spells at Peterborough, Carlisle and Notts county along with some loan appearances with Northampton, Scunthorpe and Leyton orient.

i don’t know much about him but has the experience as a good age.

Most of those are non-league appearances though and it’s deceiving seeing that someone has made as many appearances as Whitfield, because most are sub appearances or he was subbed himself. I’d be willing to take a flyer that someone like Gibbons with half Whitfield’s  number of appearances is probably very close to Whitfield in terms of actual minutes on the pitch. Look at someone like Dan Turner he’s listed as making over 40 appearances for us, sounds impressive, but as we all know he rarely started or finished a game and was mainly a sub.

Taking out the non-league games then the statistics are just as s stark.

Smith, 23, 138 EFL appearances

Whitfield, 23, 101 EFL appearances

Conlon, 23, 98 EFL appearances

Browne, 23, 68 EFL appearances

Oyeleke, 26, 41 EFL appearances

Lloyd, 25, 30 EFL appearances

Kennedy, 25, 23 EFL & SPL league appearances

Burgess, 22, 20 EFL appearances

Evans, 23, 19 EFL appearances

Tricket-Smith 23, 0 EFL appearances

 

Gibbons had 1,151 minutes on the pitch last season, and Whitfield had 1,526. Though Whitfield had the most substitute appearances in the squad and only Miller, Hannant and Conlon were substituted off more.

The Macclesfield connection at vale is unreal

Rawlinson was a capable backup CB but clearly Askey doesn't rate him.

We definitely need another CB now.

Donervon Daniels or Alex Lacey would be nice.

Will probably be Shaun Brisley though!

Ha! I was right! Called it 2 weeks ago LOL.

Literally looked at any CB's that were free agents and played for Macclesfield!

We really do need a proper scouting team at Vale.

I'm not bothered that he played at macc. I am bothered that he played alot of games for a Notts defence that conceded enough goals to go down and has been deemed surplus to requirements and replaced by rawlinson in the league below.

 

Still, this is unofficial vale we are talking about, it's probably Shaun Goater training with us.

Have you been taking lessons from Ernie?

NOBODY has EVER said these players are “world beaters”.

Ernie is a laughing stock on here and I assume the user most on people’s “ignore list” because of making tripe up like this.

You are better than that. 

Don’t give me the capitals mate, if you don’t like what I say then fine . Block me. I blocked Ernie 2 years ago!

I agree that nobody has ever said they are world beaters, I wish they were , but the link with Macc is unreal.

Not sure how much Brisley was to blame for last season at County as he barely played. Was a main stay of the team that finished 5th the season before. County wanted an upgrade on Brisley, who was seen as he was seen as predominantly a player who tackled and won his headers, rather than a ball player. With hindsight those traditional centrehalf virtues may have served them better. I suspect one of his biggest atteactions is we can probably afford him rather than his Macclesfield connection.

Embarrassing now this is. What is our scouting team doing? It literally is has he played for macc at some time? Yes. Sign him then. Not one of these ex macc players is in the starting 11 and are all back up (probably not particularly good) and we just keep overloading the squad with them. Be lovely if we actually tried to sign a first team player and someone who could heaven forbid improve us!

I’m not having a dog... but these are the kinds of comments that get everyone riled up. People are happy to just say stuff as fact to stir things up and then  themselves from the comments when it’s pointed out.

Your actual quote is “He’s better than some of the tripe we are being convinced are world beaters”

Now you are saying “I agree that nobody has ever said they are world beaters”

So were we being convinced they are world beaters or not? Or was it just a sensationalist comment?

Also well done for blocking Ern 2 years ago... it took me a lot longer to come to my senses!

That does however mean you won’t have read his most recent posts... they sounded a lot like yours! Almost word for word.

Far too sensible a view point.

People don’t like facts, they like an angry rant because he played for Macc 7 years ago.

Forget his time at other league clubs!

Yes like every other player we’ve signed. It’s fine if it’s a couple but now it’s 5/6 or even more. Shocking scouting from the club.

I agree that we have over indexed on players from macc as John builds a team he can trust.

What I’m saying is it’s silly to judge a played purely on the fact he played for them 7 years ago... which a few seem to have done. They know nothing about him other than that fact.

You couldn’t make it up.

According to soccerbase he played 26 times? Started the season the he appeared to be dropped only coming back in for the last two games

I'm just old fashioned but in division 2 I look at a defence and want to see at least 3 of the defence able to win 60 to 70% of their headers. If they can pass a ball 30 metres I see that a bonus. I thought Chesterfield and Notts County were both guilty of trying to play Championship football without doing the basics.

Time will tell what to make of the Macclesfield connection. Clearly our budget is limited. Will they add more than some cheap squad players on loan from Championship clubs? They're probably less of a gamble as they've played man's football, although probably not as good technically. I felt last season the drop off from our first 11 was quite steep. We'll know by the end of September if we are stronger when all teams are playing squad players in some positions.  To get a guaranteed starter in at centrehalf we probably need to pay Legge wages and we could only do that by shifting Legge off the wage bill. As supporters we can't really make a strong judgement as we don't know who the alternatives were for the same wage demands. I would have liked Guthrie over Brisley .... but Guthrie may well have held out for 1500 plus a week.

He was replying to a post in which I clearly said I didn't care about his time at Macclesfield.
