Latest episode out now - A Crawley preview!

Bezza gives a 30 second review of the Tranmere game, we talk through the news including the possibility of fans not getting back in October, a potential new winger, and what the national media think of Vale's chances.

Then it's into the preview. And one of us doesn't think Crawley are up to much at all!

Any feedback on the review/previews? Be good to know what people like and don't like!

Thanks! Let me know what you think!

I enjoyed the first episode which brought back some great memories.I was there when Leon Constantine refused to run down that ball in the corner and that was unforgivable.The audio was a bit frustrating when Bezzo was trying to speak but I'm sure that will have been sorted out in later episodes.

I will be catching up over the weekend on episodes 2 and 3.Please keep up the good work.UTV

The sound does get better I promise. Bezza tried to do episode 1 speaking into a tablet!

What did everyone think of the game? And our chances for the Fleetwood game?

Latest episode out now!

 

We quickly review the Fleetwood game, before covering the latest news at Vale Park and listen to Jonny and Bez have words about how lower league football is funded! After that it's a Exeter preview. Keep it the same, or make a change to the starting lineup? And our predictions!

Another good episode. In light of some of the ratings for the defenders and the comments about replacing Fitzpatrick if CLark became available, would you guys be advocating Askey change any of those positions? Say Monty and Gibbo and coming back in as fullbacks for example? Or swapping one of the centre halfs even? (Although IMO Smith and Legge are a great pairing at this level).

I (Stu) like Monty at LB above Fitzpatrick. I think whilst he's not as good a defensive player as Fitzpatrick, he adds more through his attacking play, his deep crossing and his overlaps. That in turns pins their winger back a bit more, so we receive a defensive benefit from that. I don't want to speak for the other two, but I think Bezza would agree and Jonny not! I'm sure Gibbo comes back in when he's fit. Maybe not straight away but I'm sure Askey would make a change quickly.

As for centre halves, I wouldn't change anything currently. It was a tough afternoon with Bowman up front who is clearly a handful. What we are short of at centre-back is pace, but can we say if we bring Crookes or Brisley in that would significantly improve? The two late chances Seymour had were a bit concerning given he was free both times, but we didn't concede. Incredible that I'm suggesting that it was an off-day for the defenders when we kept a clean sheet! Perhaps Jonny had his ratings wrong!

We're back with a Harrogate preview. Before that we discuss why on earth fans can't go and watch league football, and what our mate Norman has been up to this week. Enjoy!

Just listening to the pod fellas. Couple of points to make. With regard to fans being allowed in the ground, agree 100% with everything you said about Boris' ridiculous rules... But...the Hashtag United video shows exactly why the ban remains in place. While the vast majority of responsible fans will adhere to social distancing, there will always be <ovf censored> who behave like that and ruin it for everyone else. It might be 30 or 40 of them watching a tinpot team, but in league football you could have groups of 4 or 5 hundred doing the same thing.

Ifollow is a farce, I had problems with the Scunny feed and the Crawley feed failed to work at all. As such I tuned into an illegal stream for the Exeter game. I wasn't comfortable with the club not benefitting but I'm not prepared to shell out for a sub standard service. As such if I tune in to an unofficial stream again, I will donate to the just giving page for the Lorne Street concourse. Either that, or if the club set up its own way of contributing, such as online golden goal or shirt of the back tickets, I'd purchase a few of those to the same value as the cost of the game on ifollow. That way 100% of the money goes to the club

Interesting debate regarding Amoo if he's fit. You couldn't seem to squeeze him onto the bench. My question would be will he get in when he is fit? And if not is he surplus to requirements? I've never really seen the attraction myself. He wouldn't get in ahead of either Worrall or Rodney that's for sure, and McKirdy is the other option and he gives you a goal threat that Amoo doesn't.

Good episode today I thought, especially the debate about ifollow and the income for the club's involved.  Also interesting discussing ways to raise funds for the club. Some ideas I think would work, like shirt of the back being taken online. Would be ideal if it was an option when buying your match day pass/entering your pass number. Unfortunately can't see ifollow being able to manage to anything that complicated.

The Hashtag United stuff does ruin it for everyone else unfortunately. You'd hope that people would take it more seriously than that.

 

Totally agree with the point about donating to the club. I'm used to iFollow and have my season pass, so easy for me. Seems it's not so easy for everyone else.

And the review is out for Harrogate!

Fair to say we all thought it was an off day for Vale and nothing more serious than that. A poor performance though from most of the team. The usual runthrough, followed by 'Refwatch' from Bez, what Askey had to say and Jonny's player ratings!

Our Morecambe preview is out now!

 

We cover the latest out of the club. Carol's attempts to get fans back in, COVID at Vale and an ex-loanee making a surprising move. Then it's in to the Morecambe match, should be a tough match. What do you think?
