Lumped on this afternoon.

Orient odds surprised me as they've lost 3 of their best players 

Bradford being front runners never ceases to amaze me. 18/1 for Vale outright winning the thing seems poor value, in fact the whole league does at it is one of the very hardest to predict.

Pett, Benning, Walker and Martin are absolute Rolls Royce signings. 

I've gone from pessimistic to optimistic over night. Add into the above Covolan if he takes the step up with ease, Taylor if he comes back in first year form and Wilson if back up and running. Add to that Conlon, Worrall, Gibbo, Jones, Smith, Rodney. Were looking like a serious force next year.

Lazy really, as per Salford. Bradford are a big fish in League 2 who are year after year one of the favourites.

One year the bookies will be right 😂

Jesus wept… some rockets in there!

Walker and Benning to fight it out for goal of the season?

Add in Conlon and also Rodney who is also pretty good from distance the opposition will be bricking it whenever we have the ball 30 yards out from goal. The volley he hit on that video was technically as close to perfect as you get.

Considering some fans argued we should have kept him, I would say dropping below our league is a step down. 

It is absolutely a step down. Two steps in fact. 

Clearly money motivated.

Play for Oldham in front of decent crowds v Bradford, Tranmere etc or Fylde v  Farsley Celtic and Guiseley.

It's an absolute no brainer football-wise it's Oldham all day. Can't blame Joyce for lining his pockets at his age. But he should stroll that league with his eyes shut.

Regardless of money it is a huge drop down the pyramid with some games being akin to The Dog and Duck. Whatever floats your boat i guess.

Garrity must be like "that wide-boy Flitters showed a graphic of me starting next to Conlon, not carrying the waterbottles for Pett and bloody Walker."

He's still very inexperienced in League football. I wonder if he was told that Vale consider him a long-term prospect and to not expect to start straight away but they will develop him? For instance, the first half of the season at a decent National League side may give him game time and allow Vale to see how he does. With Pett approaching 30, it could then may be next season when Garrity would start to seriously challenge for a place.

That said, football is funny some times - I remember when Rudgie brought that unknown forklift driver Ian Taylor and he leapfrogged more experienced players to go straight into the team. I would imagine Vale have also said that the onus is very much on Garrity - if he has an explosive pre-season then who knows?

I would imagine that with the squad we have now, the sensible message to the players is that no-one, regardless of reputation, is guaranteed a start and they need to put everything into training and friendlies if they are going to start the new season.

I’d rather reside in Lytham or St Anne’s than Oldham.

They’re hardly the other end of the country though, you can travel between the two in an hour.

Perhaps he wants a promotion or two before he calls it a day. AFCF must be nailed on for one this season.
