Nothing wrong with getting just a little carried away at the moment,  as long as we all remember that it's The Vale we're talking about. But then again this is the New Vale and it feels amazing,  even

People make me laugh on this website , slagging a player off who wants to play for port Vale while lording over Maynard who doesn't . Seen his you tube interview where he states he and the club are in

I can think of a decent winger who is a free agent and played under Askey at Macc.

But I'm guessing I'd be putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5.

Will your guess play in a number 15 or 17 shirt? Time for a competition?😀

Reading the Sentinel quote it doesn't sounds like King John has other targets he would prefer. McKirdy sounds like plan b or even c which is encouraging on the quality of players we are chasing.

Can Askey only sign ex Crewe or Macc players? 

Got me feeling all nostalgic now. This comment sounds like a throwback to the good old days when Ernie used to frequent the forum.  What fun we had. 😂

Just a thought and i have no idea but does the signing of local players from macc crewe etc save the club on an additional accommodation costs for players needing to stay over??? Eg if we sign a player from giingham and he has to find a place then are the club liable for overnight hotel costs before and after a game before he moves more local.

I believe those costs are included in the salary cap. It will make it difficult to relocate a player and stay within the cap. Looking at some of the mental health problems of young players moving around the country for 12 month spells maybe a good thing. Apart from Visser I think all our signings live within an hour drive.

If he signed Rowe it would be a real coup and I don’t think there’d be too many complaints.

Struggling to see the love in with Rowe as I suspect like most people I don't remember much about his one appearance against Vale for Lincoln. Given he was substituted early in the second half it probably wasn't that memorable. He was one of a number of non league players signed by bigger clubs in the hope of unearthing the next Jamie Vardy, most of which flopped. He has a wikipedia page which has some description at odds with his actual record, which is mediocre in terms of league football. He looks ok on YouTube,  but as this is heavily edited by agents every player tends to. His goal scoring record at EFL level isn't that impressive. Ipswich fans thought he wasn't good enough for league 1. 

Askey has managed him before so should know enough about it. He honestly isn't a signing I would get particularly excited about one way or the other. I'd be surprised if he proves better than Amoo, Worrall and even possibly Rodney in the wide role. If he signed and does well I'll be very pleased but there seems a lot more hype than substance.
