Excellent to read. It won't be Pugh. Experienced manager coming.

This line should have been said the day of Askey's sacking and it would have saved a lot of worry. Glad we've got here in the end:

Hallelujah.... I'm more happy we have actually communicated our intentions.

Carol's criteria for the new manager has sound logic. My only question mark would be the new manager must keep Pugh around. This has potential to be a sticking point but I would hope not.

Some interesting responses on here to the latest development. I'd like to add some context. In the past TWENTY YEARS we have only achieved a top 7 finish in the league... ONCE. This was under MA

Check out wiki.  He's run the family business with his brother and father for 15 years and has his own football academy.  He's not been "just" a player and manager.  In view of the amount of crit

The meltdown on here is laughable.  Please can someone tell me the success we have had in appointing a manager since Micky left? None. Flitcroft being appointed DoF shows our long term visio

No, I suppose the bookies odds are governed by who people are putting money on and the bookies wouldn't be as profitable as they are if the favourite always won. I guess just because there's a lot of money being put on someone doesn't necessarily mean they are the one. Wasn't Jose Morais the bookie's favourite almost right up to the point when NS opted for Bruno Ribeiro, for instance...

No doubt applicants will arrive masked to foil the  manager spotters camped in Hamil Road.

I Agree with Carol this is a significant appointment ,lets not just employ any old  journeyman let's employ a man who can get extra out of any player who plays for him and the club and can move players on who's efforts are not to the required standard at Port Vale football club .

So no hasty appointment for me ,think clearly and choose wisely and get the karma you deserve Carol for all the good you do for others

Good to hear the plan and the strategy going forward ! The criteria looks sound and I’m sure teamwork will be in there to assist with the galvanisation of the playing side.

Maybe we will get a loan centre half under the same basis as Kurtis?

If it’s hopefully retaining league status and a project going forward, a deal in excess of two years could be on the cards.

Without doubt, there is enough experience with Colin and Sir John to do their homework to get this one right.

Best of luck Carol, you deserve what your vision is looking for.

Vale forever!

I'm not suggesting he would come  or we necessarily want him but the description of our next manager sounds very much like Mark Cooper at FGR.

Big news. Scrape a win against Southend and a free week hopefully gives us time to get it sorted. Maybe explains the Parkinson rumours from Saturday?

Not to sure she wants entertaining football and fans of his other clubs have described his football as dour and not sure how he is on the youth side of things.

I know i keep saying but i have for a few months now,only one man ticks nearly all the boxes and thats  Derek Adams,success at all his clubs including promotion from this league,has the contacts his loans this season are from Blackburn,Reading and Burnley. His side are scoring goals and a fan of theirs says they have been attractive to watch in a lot of games this season,youth policy not so sure as not many in his team,he is the man for me.

This is exactly part of the clarity we were all wanting. Worth the wait .

I'm encouraged by what she has said .

I'm with a few others on here, Mr Adams is the man. Yes he had a failure at Plymouth but only after great success. 

The job he is doing at Morecambe is worthy of a statue next to Eric on the promenade.

Its good to get a positive message, but slightly worried about the Pugh statement. Surely any decent manager will want his own backroom team in with him?

‘Contacts with Premier League & Championship clubs’ - why? So that we can loan their academy players preventing our own academy players, who may be good enough, from getting the opportunity to play in the first team.

I’ve never understood why we do this, even more so if the club has to pay a loan fee and a % of the wages. - whilst at the same time developing a player who is registered to another club.

Paul Tisdale appears to think similar since his MK Dons days, as he is not keen on the loan market, only loaning in the occasional experienced player.

Basically young players from premier league and championship clubs are far better than league 2 youngsters in general

Don’t put your eggs in one basket.

Have the chance to loan players from clubs in top 2 leagues.

Also, have the infrastructure in place to bring through more decent home grown.

Why would you limit yourself?

If next season we bring in a loan striker who gets 25 goals and a loan winger who set 60% of them up, I certainly wouldn't be moaning.

Me neither but the problem is he'd be gone in January and that's the problem with loan players

Super article by Carol, thank god she’s in charge rather than some of the planks on this forum.

Nobody can argue with her vision and philosophies, so back off and give her time & space. It’s important that the next manager is the right person and wants to work with the owners plans. We don’t need a stop gap appointment of some out of work journeyman.
