Interesting points about team improvements. For me, the following points are for discussion.

Goalkeeping- Potential for improvement and greater competition.

Wingbacks- Improvements and more threat. Probably the most improved department.

Centre backs- Height, speed and aggression needed and maybe from what I’ve seen and know, an improvement.

Midfield- Pett looks a good acquisition. Walker gives us more height and legs. If Taylor can improve we will be quite well off for mixing it up.

Wingers- No change for me, unless we get someone in. Amos remains a passenger in many games. Will be interesting to see how we use the ability of Worrall.

Strikers- We need Rodney and Wilson to click and for Procter to score more per games than previous. So for now, potentially better if we can get a youngster that can pressurise the others.

 

Summary- Overall a better group of players and certainly taller and experience apart from goalkeeping. I feel DC has flexibility within the squad to tweak formations to suit if required to do so. Heart says play off’s, head says just short.

Who's Amos? Have I missed a signing?

Good afternoon fellow Valiants,

One hope's you have all been keeping well. Jeff has been away at sea on his reasonably sized fishing vessel, searching waters far and wide. 

Do not fear though, after what was at times a perilous 6 months out there on choppy waters, one has returned to see Darrell James Clarke bring glory back to the streets of Burslem. 

Here is one's prediction:

1. Port Vale

 

All the very best,

Jeff.

Final Vale preview now available!

We are joined by friends of the show, Sentinel & SOT Live report Michael Baggaley and our sponsor Inplayman to look at the weeks news and preview the Vale squad. We go through the latest happenings at Vale Park with the pre-season friendly v Sheffield Wednesday, ticket sales and more potential signings amongst the topics. We speak to Matt from Inplayman (and big Vale fan!) to discuss changing up our weekly tip for the season. He's got some season bets for anyone interested too! And then the 5 of us discuss the squad and where it is a week out from the season starting. Are we better or worse than last year in each department?

The league 2 predictor comp has got bigger as well! Thanks to Super Vale Abroad we will now be giving away a 2022/2023 shirt of the winner's choice, and thanks to Inplayman there's also a 50 quid amazon voucher in the prize fund, to go with the 3 pints we've offered! To join in the comp, simply send us your top 7 (in order) and your bottom 2 (in order) predictions for League 2 this season either on here, Twitter or Facebook. Scoring works as follows, if you get the team's predicted league finish spot on, you get 0 points, if you are 3 places out, you get 3 penalty points. The person with the lowest penalty points wins! We'll keep track over the season!

Available on Apple, Google and Spotify podcasts. And here! https://aleandthevale.podbean.com

And if you are going to have a bet, with some of Inplayman's tips, only bet what you can afford to lose!

 

1. Salford City

2. Tranmere Rovers

3. Mansfield Town

4. Colchester United

5. Bradford City

6. Port Vale

7. Harrogate Town

 

23. Rochdale

24. Sutton United

Northampton Preview available!

We're joined by sponsor Tom (Home Choose Carpets!) to talk through the weeks news, with season ticket numbers, Carol and the SVA initiative on the menu. We do some side bets between ourselves on how we think Vale will do this season, offer our acca of the week before going into the Northampton preview. Plenty of churn at Sixfields since they were relegated from L1, will they get a quick bounce or can Vale get an early win, 17 years unbeaten on opening day!

We're back with our way too early League 2 Preview Extravaganza!!!!!!

We're joined by Daily Star reporter and avid Valiant Alex Wood to look at the weeks news, including Tom Pope staying local, a new kit and interesting interviews with David Flitcroft and Darrell Clarke.

Then we try to go around League Two in 48 minutes (ish - More like 66!) We've doing our 1-24 predictions, combined them and count down from our predicted 24th place team all the way down to our champions! Including some players to watch, manager ratings and our 'surprise packages'! Alex's national football knowledge certainly helps!

To join in the comp, simply send us your top 7 (in order) and your bottom 2 (in order) predictions for League 2 this season either on here, Twitter or Facebook. Scoring works as follows, if you get the team's predicted league finish spot on, you get 0 points, if you are 3 places out, you get 3 penalty points. The person with the lowest penalty points wins!

Northampton Review!

A disappointing afternoon at Sixfields as we fall 1-0 on the opening day and lose our 16-year opening day record. We quickly recap the game and Jonny gives his ratings (be prepared!). That hit some main talking points that arose from the game. Let us know what you think of the new format!
