Would agree with Bez, 2 signings that have disappointed so far but i would go Benning and Johnson rather than Martin. Don't think Martin has really done too much wrong yet, not pulling up any trees but he's done his job ok in most games. Benning and Johnson look miles off it.

Good shout. I’d forgotten about Johnson. Although what I saw of him preseason I was really impressed, he’s just not been able carry it into the season

Didn't see any pre season games but from what i've seen so far this year he is way off the pace. I'd consider loaning him out if he doesn't show some signs of improvement before xmas. 

Martin came in with a lot of good reports from Exeter fans, but he's a few years older and has been playing in a relegated scottish team, he probably needs time to get used to being a L2 footballer again. 

Benning, I don't know what the script is with him. Maybe he is unfit, but i do find that difficult to understand given he joined at the end of June so had a fair chunk of pre season with us. None of our other signings appear as lethargic (with the exception of maybe Wilson after 60 mins).

Johnson looked pretty good in one of the pre-season friendlies, can't remember which, when he had a lot of time. In the league games he's looked a bit slow in anticipation rather than slow slow.

Martin has been okay. Maybe not as commanding in the air as you might like from a bloke of his height.

Benning, a bit inconsistent. He's had his moments good and bad. Looks a bit like he's not quite worked out his role yet. Being up the pitch when he should be back and vice versa.

None are anywhere near a write-off yet.

Definitely not, can't write any player off after 7 games

Harrogate Preview!

We're back with plenty to talk about. Rodney's ban, Clarkey's press conference are among the topics. Then Harrogate to discuss, with their great start and solid structure. They're unbeaten, but is this the best time to play them? Plenty of confidence on the pod this week!

I'll pass it on! Good to get some another perspective on things. 

If you're ever short on numbers I can step in. It would be good to have vale fans on as guests. You would have to vet them beforehand I imagine.

RS Carl? I'd love to see him challenged by people who wouldn't be afraid to tell him he's talking out of his backside

Scunthorpe Preview!

A positive week at Vale, but we talk through a few news stories from the wider football world that could possibly affect Vale in the future! Then on to Scunny, another unhappy hunting ground for Vale, but it's not been a great start to the season for 'The Iron' and Vale will be looking to take advantage. All 3 of us predict a win, but by how many, and which recent thorn in our side could cause trouble again?

Leyton Orient Preview!

A reserve game to talk about, rip off away tickets and more positive comments from players during the week. Leyton Orient look a tough prospect, with a solid spine of the team and other quality players throughout. But Vale are at home and doing well, dare we call it a promotion clash and risk the wrath of Clarkey?!

Leyton Orient Review!

What a game! What a comeback! A wonderful Saturday to look back on, with goals galore and plenty to review. We cover the game in full with some talking points, as well talking about a post-match incident that took some of the gloss off a great afternoon for Vale.

Is Johnny banned after last weeks possible drink fuelled “I love you” for every player during the Scunthorpe game review? 😀

Ha ha! Apparently you can't call your midday meal 'lunch', it has to be called dinner. I'm in danger of a ban if that's the case!
