Maybe Askey took the hump with the fall out they had and just wrote him off as a bad job? 

Maybe Askey didn't want to sign him in the first place.

Terrific signing. Just what we want.Young striker with pace. Looks good in the air. Scores goals with both feet. Been around a couple of seasons, so knows what to expect.To me there is more optim

Joe, I thought that Jake gave us energy that I struggle to remember anyone else doing for sometime. He also motivated Burgess who now looks lost. Together they formed a partnership that  allowed Joyce

The Pope question will need to be answered sooner or later.   with the salary cap (he will count as the average salary not what he is actually earning) then we may struggle to improve on him, but if

I’m sorry and I don’t really want to say it but we have to replace manny in the summer

It’s like having a mclaren in the garage but everytime you take it out of the garage it conks out , eventually you get rid for something more reliable

 Should have gone last season. Gambled and it’s not paid off. Shame as he has ability. Not sure he is as good as some make out though don’t think any of us have seen enough of him long enough to actually judge.

I fear for Manny’s career tbh. The latest surgery was do or die and he still can’t get a run of games. Also, contrary to what some others think, I think it takes him 4 or 5 games to get back in his stride when he does come back. I’d be very tempted with a heavy heart to let him go IF a decent centre half was available.

Reading Manny's Wikipedia is really bad ,in relation to his hamstring injury history.Sadly the lad has a massive career threatening issue with it.Hopefully he can sort it out this season.

He has no choice because his contract is up. Been a real shame as it's blighted his Vale career 

Sadly we aren't a charity we are a League 2 club in the middle of a pandemic with little income. He has to be released, very sad but that's the reality.

I don't understand what is going on with Oyeleke.

I thought he had a major hamstring operation last year to sort out the problem and get him 100% fit for this year.

But aren't his injuries different ones now?

It's a crying shame but we can't go on like this and we need to grasp the nettle.

We have 3-4 lads who are prone to injury:  Amoo, Monty, Manny and Cullen.

We simply can't afford to keep all 4 and will have to think carefully about what we do in the summer. I like them all but we just don't have unlimited funds for players who are not fit. I know it isn't their fault. I know they want to play. I get that. But a club our size can't carry 4 players. I'd keep 2/4 and look elsewhere.

Again it will sound harsh but i wouldn't lose any sleep if all those 4 left in the summer

I know fans want some experienced players but i hope we can bring in a couple of athletic mobile younger players with a bit of pace now,hopefully a tall CB in the Innis kind of mould,you then hope you fall on a good one with a potential sell on value(thats what keeps a club going) like we have with Rodders and maybe Taylor which is why they get the long contracts.

I see Crawley have sold the young Doncaster cast off Watters after a few months for 1m

I'd imagine a centre-half is the next priority and I'd absolutely agree with your suggestions. 

However, I wonder if with Theo and McKirdy already deregistered, we're really going to have to ship some out before adding any more? If we get a third signing in can we real afford to carry three non-playing wages? If that's the case I suspect it may mean we have to wait till towards the end of the transfer window when it all goes a bit frantic and we can move some out before adding any more *

* This guess of course now means all the Vale moves will take place at 9am on Monday and not at the end of the month

My guess is that there is enough interest in those players for us to chance de registering them,i am sure the club expects them to move and it might be the same for a couple more BUT if we sign say two u21's then we wont need to de register anyone else.

I would now like to see Pugh bring in a couple of players from his own contacts than players Askey had lined up(Taylor and Guthrie) although having said that they are both decent,i just want to see what contacts Pugh has in the game.

I would hope his contacts included Nicky Butt.Some great kids coming through at MU.Danny started his career there.

Going off what has been said on the radio it seems he has many contacts in the game due to him playing at some decent clubs in his time,i guess only time will tell

There are players we've had on loan as youngsters who have turned out to have decent moves to higher levels.

Tom Anderson , Shodipo ,even Pyke . Harness another one. 

The players are out there .

We were very unlucky with Tyler Walker too , who knows what would of happened had he stayed fit .

It's about taking the plunge and hoping it pays off

Agreed,we have had some on loan that have gone on to better things,in fact i see Kanu has been playing for Peterborough

It would be nice if we could loan a player,they do a job for us and we try to buy them or take them if released(like we have done with Taylor,tried to do with Clark a couple of times),as i have said before i do think this is the model Carol wants for the club,either sign young players with potential or bring in our own through the club in the hope to sell them on at a later stage( a good model to go by if it works)..Crewe do it,Peterborough do it and Exeter do it,so it can be done.

The only trouble with the loan route is if they do really well then its hard to get them permanently

I totally agree.  It's called 'getting value for money' .... and in their cases, we haven't.

Spot on. Scores a lot of headers from this video - Worrall is a creative phenomenon - Can't wait to see them hopefully link up. 

 

There's some very good finishing in this - not afraid to shoot, and has a range of headers. Hope to see some of this with the Vale!!
