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

I honestly despair with some Vale fans... Is it bred into our DNA that we have to seek out negativity???? As I'm typing this, we've have just launched the nicest football strip I can remember, desig

Jean .. once a Headmistress always a Headmistress. ... Pull those socks up boy !!!
I think you said the same to Danny Sonner. Lol
Good job Ron 'nutter' Futcher didn't go your school he would never have got out of the naughty corner!!

The above will only mean something to those who have reached a certain age.

Let's hope we all get back inside Vale Park soon and have the opportunity of actually seeing this new squad play.

I am off to watch an FA Cup match tomorrow Leek Town v Sporting Khalsa in the Preliminary qualifying round. 400 capacity being allowed in a 2,000 seater stadium only about 20 tickets left online booking if you fancy watching footie as it should be (whilst keeping an eye on proceedings at Vale Park)

Up the Vale

Dave, I was never a headmistress.  You're mixing me up with some incompetent a***licker!

Pleased with the McKirdy signing,I remember watching him against was it Dulwich Hamlet in a televised cup match and thinking he was the kind of player we needed, it's up to him now at 23 to carve a career out for himself, if he hits the ground running the Vale crowd will love him.

I also thought as the week dragged on that the club maybe looking at the finances with Covid not doing the decent thing and going away, and would try and save a salary, so once again more thanks to Carol, it seems to me she is just as competitive as any owner in the football league  without being unrealistic and wants to be as competitive as possible.

Not to forget Cambell-Gordon who will no doubt go out on loan to get game time and experience but just saying if Calsberg did balanced squads.....Top work Mr Askey.

Personally i think this is a cracking signing,to sign a fellow league 2 teams best player speaks volumes for how far we have come,yes we hear about his attitude and antics etc but i am certain Askey will have done his homework on him and his background,he doesnt stand someone who will unsettle a dressing room so we will see.

How strong is our squad now though,far stronger than last season.

Just looking at that first team with the diamond of Joyce infront of the legge and Smith partnership and Brown in goals then the rotation of Cullen and Robinson upfront and thinking that right triangle of Gibbons/Oyeleke/McKirdy and that left triangle of Montano/Conlon/Worrall which is the stronger side?

That nominal second eleven with a back four of Mills/Brisley/Crooke/Fitzpatrick and Viser in goals but also a midfield of Burgess/Whitehead/Trickett-Smith but also with the pace of Hurst/Rodney/Amoo and Pope to come on is itself a strong side.

Delighted with this signing, and it's the best transfer window we've had for a long time!

I think HM will become as popular as Gareth Ainsworth did )who also had some critics!). But, I have some disappointments with this saga:

Disappointed in some of our fans, having to resort to attacks on his personal appearance - that's the kind of thing I loathed about Clive Tyldesley and Jonathan Pearce...and the Irish commentator whose name I can never remember! Not for them to comment on a player's appearance (tattoos/hairstyle, etc) and no need to do it on here if you're proved wrong about something!

Also disappointed that some of you seem prepared to be the big guy, and accept a wager, then not cough up when you lose (although, at least 1 of you have done, since)?

Finally, disappointed that somebody who, clearly, heard something definite felt the need to broadcast it when it ought to have been a confidence. We had this over the official release of the home kit (how's sales doing, by the way?)

But, overall a very good window for the Vale Management Team and owners, and I think this signing pushes us a little closer to promotion? A 1-year deal would make sense if we did get promotion - HM could then be offered a new contract to extend his stay  with us, in a League he must feel he can play in?

Think this will be good business!

Fantastic transfer window overall for Vale.......so far!

The reason I say so far is that the window is still open, and there’s the obvious increased risk of injury with a lot of games in a short space of time, rotation will be crucial.

There’s another risk that someone may fancy prizing away one of our assets, and if they do it would interesting to see how JA and team would react.

Well done Vale, excellent start to the new campaign, lots of optimism and the single best transfer window we’ve had since the rule changes.

Very pleased with that. Rounds off the squad nicely.

One thing that does make me feel great is the fact we've added depth to construct an excellently competitive squad for this level, and not a single loan player. All our own players.

This thread has been brilliant entertainment for the past 10 -12 pages. Thank you to all contributors for the entertainment but a shout out to Doha for his donation... Top man.

Really like the signing of McKirdy. Can create something out of nothing and scores goals.We look in great shape now as a squad but my expectations have rocketed. I would be disappointed with anything less than 3rd place. I really do feel the continuity of the 1st team and the strength in depth we should be up getting off to a good start and be up towards the top all season.

Oooops!! Did someone say Bowers knows more than our "in the know" supporter?

To be fair, The other Carlisle winger we had on trial Thomas was (as I understand it) offered a deal this week and he turned it down. 
 

Agree with all the recent posts about our squad this season, a definite improvement on last years back up players. We've brought in players who could start instead of being bench warmers. We’ve heard nothing of Campbell-Gordon so can only assume he’s going out on loan with Fitzpatrick signing and I wouldn’t be surprised it Hurst and DTS went out too.

I believe Askey has already said in an interview that if he causes any problems he would be out,so the lad will know that,its great to know that Askey has it sorted(never doubted that),no risk to the club then.. hopefully he will hit the ground running and be fantastic for us as i am sure the lad has natural ability that if he knuckles down and is sensible he could become a saleable asset for us that will allow him to progress his career higher up

I agree that this has been an excellent window.

Looking at the fixtures, it's a good job that we have good cover in all positions.

There will be a minimum of 27 fixtures in the 17 weeks from the start of the season to the end of the year. More if we progress in any of the 3 cup competitions.

The energy levels in our squad are now really high.

Such a difference from a couple of seasons ago. An excellent reshaping job.
