By RZ’s warped metrics Sir John should be classed as a failure as it went wrong in the end and he could say ‘I told you so’!

I've been waiting for the moron to blame Sir Stan for letting Ray Kennedy go?

Who'd know we'd broken it though? It's basically <ovf censored> speak for not really wanting him.

We offered Bolton a transfer fee and weren't far off agreeing a deal with Dennis. Carol backed the deal. Then Cremonese showed up and offered, by the sounds of it, significantly more in wages. That and the chance to be in Serie A next season + down the road from Milan clinched it.

Having differing opinions on managers or players is fair enough BUT you are off the scale,your clear pathetic hatred of DC started before we had even played a game and to me your reaction to him has been silly from day one,you seem to want him and us to fail just for your own pig headed i told you so attitude and thats why i think you get abuse. We go on good runs,make a decent signing and you still refuse to give DC credit for anything at all and thats why its so pathetic.

Hover over his username, then click ignore. He will go back to the oatcake soon enough!

Don't feed the troll!

That's an excellent interview! Take away the management speak, and there's a genuine warmth and enthusiasm for the Vale, and for letting other clubs see what the Vale is like for their players. The fact that Kian Harratt was being looked at as a possible for the summer window, and, by the end of the presentation, wanted to join the Vale straight away speaks volumes! Everything is in place for them - including accommodation and quality meals - for their development while they're with the Vale. Must give us an edge over some other teams?

You'd hope so. Most interesting for me, aside from that, was how he spoke about having to take the emotion out of decisions, something that we all, as fans, find very difficult to do. Strong hints that some players previously have got new deals just for who they are, rather than what they could do for the team moving forward. Long overdue IMHO

I think that's been obvious from the attitudes of some of our "fans"? Unable to view things from a clear perspective they have held onto a nostalgic memory of the player(s) at their peak, rather than at the end of their careers?

A little bit of a dig at the end about how things used to be although completely justified. I’m sure Tom will be on twitter later.

Brilliant listen that.

Some interesting snippets.

Askey had frozen Legge out and he was training on his own. DC and Flickers brought him back into the fold. His move to Harrogate was because they offered him a deal that was 18 months which we wouldn’t have offered him so he went with their blessing.

We we’re close to getting Politic but the lure of playing in Italy (and the wages) were something Dennis couldn’t turn down.

Johnson deal to Stockport has a sell on clause.

The level of research and analysis we are now doing sounds very impressive… the ad hoc recruitment of the past is hopefully over forever. Will we get everything right? No. Does it give us a better chance of being successful. Yes.

Garlic has found some flats that the loan lads are living in to give them a space that’s comfortable, connected to the club but also theirs.

Meanwhile we keep on losing. Flitters is full of BS but let’s hope it works out

He likes his own voice for sure but I don’t understand why you feel that is BS?

I thought it was good explanation of what’s happening at the club now and the future. Personally speaking it fills me with confidence the club is actually being run in the right way from top to bottom.

Good to see that and DC's interview today.

Puts things in context.

Still very early days in establishing the club, and we're doing brilliantly considering the size of the task.

There's a few people on here full of BS...but they only turn up if we're going through a bad patch! Have you lost your zebra costume?

After watching Norman trying to wreck the club for 5 years, I thought we had seen the light at the end of the tunnel when Carol and Kevin bought the club. I can't shake off the feeling that Clarke is a mediocre manager though and he doesn't help himself by releasing lots of players and then saying "maybe I was a bit harsh with some of them". I think we would have been better off appointing Flitcroft as manager, he is a lot more rational. Another Clarke thing I don't like is the way he spoke about Lucas after his sending off. He said he was not going to single anyone out but has been quite outspoken about Lucas being stupid and getting punished. The comment that he should have made a mans tackle if he was going to get sent off is also a bit strange. It seems like he is a control freak, tells the players what they should be doing all the time as if he always knows best.
