"don't like the bloke", not lad. But I'm sure Bez means he doesn't like him as a player as there is no reason to dislike him as a person. Poorly phrased.

Totally agree... I'm 100% sure there is no malice in it at all and it was a slip of the tongue... Bez was quite rightly emotional after the game as I was!

sorry it was not meant personally. Emotion was high he comes across as a very committed and decent bloke if I am honest. Personally I don’t rate him as a footballer. It’s a game of opinions and I don’t really see what he offers at all. Give me Walker or Taylor or even burgess before him who have some technical ability on the ball. I will give you he works hard and runs and there maybe games we need that, but a game where we have more of the ball we need technical footballers on the pitch for me.

No stress mate, knew it wouldn't have been anything more than a footballing opinion. And trust me I was as emotional as the next bloke last night.

Walker / or Taylor have a real chance now with Conlon's ban to stake a claim.

100% agree with the comments re Jake Taylor. What an absolute disgrace Sproson is. Get him off the bloody radio! Troublemaker & just trying to look after his own pocket. Absolute weapon.

 

What did he say this time? Haven't heard it, so kept hoping it would be explained

During the Oldham game he was asked about Jake Taylor & he couldn't have been any less subtle about Taylor's frustration at not starting games & getting match time. He basically alluded to the fact Taylor wasn't happy & if things continued, would be open to a move in a couple of months time.

For me he shouldn't be commenting on Taylor & his situation on live radio. It's a poor question to ask him from Radio Stoke's perspective, but Sproson needs to pipe down. He's mugged Taylor right off because as soon as DC got wind it was never going to end well, hence him being out of the squad last night. I'll be amazed if he makes the squad on Saturday but Conlon's absence might force DCs hand.

Which contradicts totally what Jake's dad says. Some of you might know he goes to all of the games on the official coach. Nice guy his dad is. Had a lengthy chat with him at Crawley and he said Jake fully aware he's not going to get in a winning team and has to take his chance when it comes. 

I've no reason to doubt anything that was said to me and given the fact we only lost at Oldham on Saturday maybe soon Jake will get his opportunity. 

Sadly over the last couple of years Sproson is tarnishing his status at the Vale with his biased bile .

On the other hand would a players dad tell a random fan what their sons true feelings and plans are?

Possibly not but I've spoken to him at Swindon and Crawley , didn't know at Swindon that it was his dad . Seems genuine bloke to me , can only take him at face value. 

Whereas Sproson has ulterior motives. Wasn't Toby Edser the best thing since sliced bread according to Sproson too ?

Absolutely I get what you’re saying. But his dad you would this imagine would  be more guarded about making comments to fans if his lad was unhappy. Sproson on the other hand should keep that stuff to himself instead of announcing it on the radio, because he should know that it could harm his career here.

Hartlepool Review!

We've cast aside the 'lost' Hartlepool Preview recording, and we've gone straight to the review! A solid 2-0 victory versus Hartlepool at home, so I must be a lucky omen at Vale Park! Bezza's passed out in Benidorm somewhere, so friend of the show JJ joins us to give his thoughts on a return to winning ways, during a cold and blustery afternoon in Burslem.

Very good episode. I’ve thought for a while that JJ would be good fit for the pod so I’m happy he got called up. 

 All fair comment. JJ  equalled your good self Santa.  Top of the range stuff. When do I get on to give the Dutch viewpoint?  toch hoor?

Burton Preview!

The three of us back together, all in the UK, but still unable to get in the same room! We catch up with Bezza after his week away to get his thoughts on the Hartlepool game, the Rotherham pizza game and the injury issues currently going at the club. Then it's Burton, and we have a part-time Albion in Jonny who watches them on a semi-regular basis. Jonny is confident of a win, is everyone else?!
