4 dregs who never played and offered nothing.
Hall for Legge = yay
Hussey for Gibbo = best of a bad situation
2 strikers to give us firepower while the others get back to full speed, then we’ll be dynamite.
Replace Politic and get a player or two to cover little gaps.
Its really not that bad, and we are yet to see how DC will respond to losing Politic.
As DC says “judge the window at the end of the window.”

I think we've already replaced Politic with Harratt. Politic was playing as a striker after all.

Taking the Brentford game then, is Harratt crossing the ball for himself to score the header?!

Behave. That's no different from Proctor nodding it back across goal for Wilson. My point was, as you know, that Politic was playing as a striker so by signing Harratt (and Edmondson) we've already replaced him.

I’d hope we have at least one winger sign now. Whether Harratt is the replacement for Politic or not we need some wide men, otherwise it’s plain and simple for every single opposition manager as to how we will set up  DC said we need to have different ways of playing and different formations, we need to actually sign some players that can be effective in a formation other than 352 and politic was one of them.

Very disappointed by this and I hope we have a replacement lined up. At least if Gibbo leaves we know we have a very good replacement

You can’t do anything about a loan player who gets recalled by his parent club because they want to sell him. There isn’t much you can do either when a good player gets sold for money either.

I would hope/assume that these things are factored into the process because they have been going on as long as I’ve been a Vale fan.

It feels like a lot of variables outside our control are going against us recently. Bad luck with injuries, Covid postponements, league position, and things are beginning to run away from us and we can’t help it.

We’re desperate for a win of any sort just to settle everyone down. 

There is something.  Make an offer ourselves prior to the interest from Cremonese . Always run the risk if you don't as we had exact same situation with Alex Jones to Bradford.

Probably yes. Politic was only ever a 'super sub' and we've already signed Hussey who was getting MOTM awards in the league above. As good as both players could be, no player is irreplaceable, particularly when you have a proper recruitment team like we have now.
You do realise Hussey is thirty three? The proper recruitment team that brought Ryan Johnson? Brad Walker? Both goalkeepers are being questioned on here although personally I think they're both fine. It's been hit and miss let's be honest.

Surely we offered more than a paltry £50k? That's an absolute steal. I just want to hear from DC that we offered more and it was the chance of possibly playing serie A + closer to Romania that swung it.

We'll find out in about 30 hours when the team sheet gets released, if he's not in the squad and Gibbo isn't starting (which would basically confirm his transfer rumour) then I'll be beyond gutted.

 

I would say first team football would also swing it unless we offered huge wages which we wouldn't do for a sub. Cremonese are in Serie B

What’s wrong with Brad Walker? Always thought he was more than decent when have seen him to be honest.

No club is ever going to get every bit of recruitment right for any number of reasons. We are no different in that regard. Overall it’s been a success I’d say.

I tend to agree but we will judge the success of the recruitment in April not now. If we end up mid table then you’d have to say it’s not been anything special. Let’s see and hopefully it’ll come good.

As Politic is under 24 we would have to pay a fee in the summer. Cremonese are in a different country so they are exempt from all that.

If Politic told Bolton he was definitely going abroad (and he could well have signed a pre-contract already for all we know) £50K would be a fire sale.

Can we afford to pay money for a bloke who has started only 5 league games for us and has mainly been a sub?

My own opinion is yes. I think if you ran a poll then 75 per cent would be very disappointed he's gone.

Your point is very valid Jacko , my own opinion is he should of had a lot more minutes. Nobody at the club in a similar position excites me as much as when he came on. 

If we weren't so set on 5-3-2 he'd of played more.

I am not saying that at all but I feel we released/paid off some players and brought some other players in and the jury is still out about the progress we made by doing that. 

RZ, with the exception of Brown and Monty, who are these players you’re referring to.?

Am I missing something obvious but am I wrong to think that Gibbo was simply (right or wrongly) rested on Saturday as he has had his injury issues and that he isn't leaving?

If he starts on Tuesday will that rumour go away?

Rumours once aired never go away.
