I thought the Macc' no9 looked a half-decent player. He's the first guy I've seen this season who has actually challenged Legge effectively and consistently in the air! 

I agree he looked terrific yesterday but sure i heard that was his first goal of the season from open play?  For sure that Grimsby lad was sensational that day, but not done much since.  spose it takes more than 1 good game to be a good player. sure JA knows far better than us what's needed - weather he can get them is another matter!

Struggle to see why so many appear so keen to replace Monty.  He’s having a great season

I say hold on to the investment until summer. Better quality players available and more of them. Equally the club must remain sensible on the money front. These owners know what they are doing. More i

Another stat for those who inexplicably think that we are rubbish and Askey should be replaced (I struggle to not laugh when I type that) We have scored in 24 games so far in the 1029/20 season.

The number 9 looked a decent player and it was a tidy finish into the corner with some power. Would he improve us? his he better than Bennett? Also the number 7 also looked very lively when breaking forward and caused us problems. He would be a good signing. And youd hope the kind of signing Askey is looking at if we want to have a run for the play offs either this season or next. Pace and power is needed.

Siriki Dembélé 

Tore us to bits. Now plays for Peterborough. 

He did tear us to bits, even though small and lightweight. He came from lower tier Scottish football and is eligible to play for Scotland. Shankly always said that you needed at least one Scot in your team to win the league

I don’t want to turn PVFC into Macc but I liked the Macc number 8, Harris who was very industrious, creative, a good passer of the ball and seemed to orchestrate everything, that was good about them, plus he scored.Possibly too much like our own Super David Worrall, so not sure if we could accommodate two players with the same style of play.
Also I liked number 20, Osadebe who played up front, he scored against us at Moss Rose with an exquisite touch with his the inside of his right foot to control and in the same movement swivelled and with his left foot drilled the ball past Brown. Osadebe goal scoring record isn’t great though. Both players are out of contract in the summer. 
I think we need to get our players signed up before we start bringing players in, there are also quite a few signed this season that need to be shown the door, to free up funds

Osadebe isn’t apparently going to Southend to work with Sol again.

I always like to read people's opinions as that's what this site is all about. Can't help thinking because he got a tidy finish against us people are going way overboard about Ironside. 

I've had a quick gander about him. Aged 26 , non league all his career until now. He had actually lost his place until he scored a penalty as a substitute on Boxing Day against Grimsby. He has scored 4 goals this season and barely kicked a ball in anger in November because he couldn't get in the side .

Now don't get me wrong it was a nice goal but all the suggestions of him as a potential signing are way wide of the mark. Caught up in the moment of his goal. Nothing about his record or career would make me want him anywhere near our team based on one half decent goal . 

Thanks but no thanks. If you can't get in Macc forward line who are one of the lowest scoring sides then he certainly doesn't get in ours .

Scored 2 of those goals against us (one in Leasing) but seems to not be that well regarded on the Macc forums. Osadebe would be a decent signing.

I Understand you totally and I’ve only seen him once but I liked what I saw and I can only go off that. He’s a decent age and I was asking would be better than Bennett as a back up coming off the bench and starting the off game?
We would all probably like better but the money isn’t there so these are the players I’d imagine Askey will be looking to sign. I’m not sure Bennett is the answer to replace Tom when he’s rested but that’s up to the manager.

Toms not getting any younger and we need someone to hit the net regular from centre forward if we are to do well next season and get in the top 7.

You are right Sandyford. You can only take at face value what you see on the pitch. We only see these players once or maybe twice if we go to the away game.

Guthrie is another case in point, he absolutely destroyed us in the 1-4 game last season v Stevenage.  He's still there plying his trade with the side at the bottom of the league . 

It's very difficult and that's why a decent scouting system is important to help JA . These days the likes of Rudgie driving up and down the country to watch 4 games a week are long gone. 

We've tried a couple of chancers in Angus and Hurst who has gone back to BPA on loan . Hopefully he'll turn out to be a prospect for the future. 

Every team needs goalscorers, they are gold dust. The problem is in the main they cost big bucks and I am sure we all don't want to see silly money signings . 

I'd hazard a guess though that if Eoin Doyle was at Vale instead of Swindon it is us who would be top of the league . We haven't been clinical enough to put teams to the sword. A clinical finisher has to be our number one priority in pre season .

Just a terrace rumour on Saturday that Forest want a six figure sum for Jake Taylor, does anyone think we should continue our pursuit of Jake, or is it a step too far. I don’t want C&K spending all the FA cup money on one player. I am a big fan of Jake and would like him to stay but not at the detriment of our budget for players. If we do push the boat out, I can’t see that there should be a sell on clause as well.

As anyone heard anything to the contrary or have heard the same

I'd go 75k tops with a sell on in Forests favour. Taylor is a little gem but we don't want to put all our eggs in one basket. 

If ( big if ) Manny got full fitness a midfield of him ,Joyce and Burgess looks okay to me.

Would love Taylor to sign but we don't want to be held to random.

I would suggest that's fairly realistic? And I'd be happy to see him at the Vale for that price, even if he were to be the only cash transfer we make! We would probably be looking at loans / small fees anyway, so securing one player of Taylor's class and potential wouldn't be detrimental to our planning, I don't think?

He's a great player and could become a Championship one but I think its too much  to pay for him. With Conlon back from injury and suspension ,he can provide us the energy in midfield and Manny hopefully returning to fitness within the next month or so.We need a player who is prepared to control the game with a bit of creativity, plus a striker.

I would expect L1 clubs try and sign him on loan and Forest look to keep him for another couple of years to see if he can make the step up.

A low six figure see is realistic (rumour was that’s what we’d offered on some sites).

Look at it this way if we invest that and then he develops as per the potential he has we can flog him for a lot more than that. This is where we have to weigh up the pros and cons of that gamble on the investment it would be.

IMO Conlon hasn’t got nowhere near the energy of Jake Taylor and won’t score goals either like Taylor does. He’s happy here he’s scoring goals and playing a big part in our league position. We need to try and sign him for me. Young goal scoring midfielders don’t come about a lot and we seem to have managed to stumble on one here.

In this case I'd rather all the available money  be spent on jake, on one quality player who we know can do the business for Vale at this level, Vale know his character, he's young and has tremendous potential rather than signing 2 or 3 OK players. Quality over quantity any time and in this case known over unknown, Vale can only try their best to sign him, how often does an opportunity like this come along.

Jake Taylor is the type and quality of player who will power us to promotion and put bums on seats, do all we can within reason to sign him. He's the closest I've seen at VP for a long time to a Jonny Green, Ray Walker or a Robbie Earle.

And whist we're at it get Scott Burgess signed up to a longer contract.

Jonny Green.....now that is a blast from the past! One of my all time favourites....absolute class. How much would he have been worth in today's market?
