Ale and the Vale Podcast


Recommended Posts

Morecambe Review!

Another win! Not the best by any stretch but 3 more points on the board which makes us officially safe. We run through the few chances in the game, and a dreadful refereeing performance.

Cheers for the feedback. A few points here.  1) Can't help my accent I'm afraid. 2) I live in north London and very occasionally watch Arsenal with my father in law. 3) I don't know how

I know some find Clarke a bit outspoken but he's spot on about the weaknesses in the squad. It is unbalanced. We've never had a midfield physical presence since Grant left and are soft centred. No rea

Not quite sure what the point is of coming onto a thread and start sl@gging off a brilliant podcast which gives a fresh and original view on the vale. By all means, stop listening but not sure wh

Our interview with Super Jon McCarthy is out!

It was truly amazing to spend some time with Vale's record signing Jon McCarthy who gave up his evening to go through some great memories. His unusual route in to professional football and how he ended up at Vale were the starting points. Then his time at Vale which included an amazing cup run, and a promotion charge that almost ended up with Vale in the Premier League!

@stupers special pod with Bezza crying whilst listening to soft rock ballads screaming Mannys name over and over?

Yes, Bezza is recording a 2 hour special by himself with a breakdown of each of Manny's appearances, as well as a nostalgic look back at his interview on the podcast. We're never going to release it, but it helps him with the grieving process 😁

Bezza now has a chance to swoon on either Brisley, Robinson or Mills!! 😁

Definitely a question for Friday, who's his next Vale crush going to be? Maybe it'll be too soon!

Our preview for Carlisle is up!

We help Bezza through the difficult decision to let Manny Oyeleke depart for Chesterfield, tears and laughter and debate! We then talk about Hurst's new deal before getting in to the Carlisle preview. They're on a 5-match unbeaten run, but can we bag 7 wins in a row? We also clear up a confusing moment for a listener with one of our sponsors!

Enjoyed the Super John pod. An intelligent guy and a modest one who actually, got the most out of his career.

Seems to enjoy his current role and was interesting to hear about his reluctance to come on!

I sat with John and his wife at a friends wedding and tried not to talk to much about the Vale.

To coin a phrase, Top Man!

Well done Ale and the Vale for another experience.

Another good one. It wouldnt surprise me if the first names on the team sheet  were players with the mentality of a smith or a Legge, players who will give their all for the side.I think Clarke likes that side of the game. Jonny spoke some sense on Gibbo too, he’s going to take a few games to get going given his stop start season and the same applies for any of the players coming back in from injury. Loved the McCarthey interview too, great to relive those memories from a players perspective.

Carlisle Review/Barrow Preview

One for the purists as Vale's 6-game winning streak is brought to an end with a goalless draw at Brunton Park. Not much to take from the game with few decent chances for either side, but saw the return to the bench for McKirdy and Pope! 

We then tackle the Barrow game, with Clarke saying he's going to rotate, who comes in to the lineup to prove themselves in the last 4 games? Barrow lost to Leyton Orient, but were unbeaten in the previous 4. Can Vale win on the peninsula with a few changes?

Good listen again with the Carlisle review. Surprised to hear Monty get a 6 and only a 5 for Rodney Robinson and Gibbo and even smith scoring the same as Monty too with a 6.

Totally agree that first half our formation didn’t work and we couldn’t get going throughout the team. It looked like a new formation that we hadn’t had much time to work on. However I felt we looked much better second half when Monty went off and the formation was changed, in fact I thought our only threat was coming from Gibbo and Rodney in that second half, much more so than the combination of worrall and Amoo provided on the other side. If Gibbo was marked down for giving the ball away that lead to them getting a decent cross in first half then that’s harsh. Does that end up totally negating the couple of crosses he got in himself second half, the couple of half chances he created for us with those, the areas he found himself in at the back post and the fact he was part of a solid defensive display?

As for Rodney we also looked a lot weaker once he went off and that handed the initiative to them towards the end of the game as we had no strength or pace on the pitch. He looked the only player capable of beating a man today. His link up play with Gibbo in the second half was a lot better as well. I thought it looked a good combination at times. 

Robinson a 5 too, I thought he had a decent game, ran the channels, held it up  well and maybe had our only shot on target too. Again him going off for Cullen weakened us and their centre halves had a much easier last part of the game. 

I certainly struggle to see what Monty offered us or did today to score higher than those 3.

Smith scored the same as Monty as a 6, smith was solid defensively and even created himself a half decent chance too.

Some harsh marking IMO and maybe too much focus on what a player does wrong in a game rather than an equal focus on a the good things they offered too. To my way of thinking a 5 out of 10 is indicative of really bad individual performance of Mills-esque proportions with players offering very little, being out of position and generally looking out of their depth.

Bradford Preview!

We have a quick chat on the weeks news! Season ticket offers, Conlon, clean sheets all on the menu. Then the Bradford preview, they were going well but they've lost their last 3. We're all going for another clean sheet, but how many will we score?!

I think we've been more positive today!
