Completely forgot about Sammy Morgan, I liked him.

I just remembered Chamberlain M, Futcher,Greenhoff and Maguire.

Although Ron would play about 10 mins before getting sent off now.

I saw all the home games during the 1953/54 season and must agree with your assertion that it is the best Vale 11 that I have seen by some distance. The best 2 goal keepers, again by some distanc

My goodness, you have put a great amount of detail into that post. It’s fascinating to read, especially since you saw all those home games. That must have been really something to watch. Huge crowds ,

Bristol Rovers away for example. No idea how he got away with that. 43 seconds into this video (apologies for poor sound quality)

My Dad was really good mates with him and also his brother as a kid as they grew up together. He used to rave about him, how quick and skillful he was, but as a kid/teen I had no idea who he was other than he played for Vale and also England.

Thinking about it, is he any relation to Alex Oxlade? :classic_ohmy:

He was, by some distance, the best attacking player I've seen at Vale. His last season no fullback could touch him. Better player than his son until his hamstring problems in his 3rd season at Stoke. Never quite the same player thereafter.

Yes, Mark Chambo is Alex Oxlades Dad.

The reason Chambo wasn't in my team was because it was the bottom division. 

He improved hugely at Stoke eventually getting England caps and a move to bigger club. 

He was a superb player but my choices did it week in week out in The Championship. Otherwise I'd of had Chambo.

I wasn't there as too young but believe he had a cheeky goal away at Mansfield where he sneaked on the pitch ?

He played 6 times for Stoke before getting a cap.

I honestly dont think i can pick as we have had so many fantastic players in my time,i could easily pick about 6 strikers.. Jones,Beckford,Foyle,Futcher,Naylor,Cross(more of a number 10),Lee Matthews during the few games he played was different class

Missed off the likes of Brooker,Mills,McPhee and Constantine(who was decent in both areas)
