Ahh the old Vale fan logic of signing a player they've never heard of, checking their Wikipedia page, then completely writing them off as a waste of time before a ball is kicked, based on their appearance and goal stats.

Time to bring this out again!

Ah the good old flow chart that works both way…. Look fans are allowed to check wiki or any other site to see about a player we have signed. We aren’t scouts we are fans, there’s nothing wrong with that. If someone came out and said <ovf censored> player ect then fair enough but nobody has.

I think the above, very good, flowchart can be used for people of the opposite persuasion, for whom every signing is a 'good signing'. 

Fundamentally no one here has a scooby doo if this lad is good enough. Every just chucking takes into the ether, and one side will victory lap in about 2-3 weeks. 

Same could be said over how much or how little which ever the case may be in what we pay for a player. If the clubs have agreed an undisclosed fee (however much that may be) both clubs are happy or they wouldnt of agreed a fee.

Better than Burgess. Rock solid again.. Utv 

Good point. Forgot about burgess being replaced - He’s got decent figures and reasonably well rated by their fans - not seen him myself that I can remember but certainly sounds like a good upgrade. I was pretty unhappy with the numerous loan signings but on paper and what we have seen so far the permanent signings seem a bit step up

Love how some are blasting someone for checking how many games someone’s played on Wiki. That’s not a method of scouting. It’s a fan just having a look at who we’ve signed for sake. 
I didn't 'blast' him. It just got my goat that, as per usual, somebody saw fit to quickly check Wiki, take the figures as gospel, and then immediately come on here and post a wholly negative post about a signing whom they've no doubt never seen play

There was. He was immediately shot down 

Hardly, his facts were wrong, no name-calling. if you think that was being blasted then there are some sensitive souls in here.

 

Anyway, looking forward to seeing this new player. A win tomorrow will set us up for some tough fixtures coming up.

He played the full game against us in October.  I can't remember him individually but I can remember that they outplayed us all over the pitch.

Nah just sick of it every time we sign a player. Unless you seem be a professional scout / say it’s the best signing the clubs ever made - your wrong. 
 

Anyway good signing and imo a must win tomorrow.

Plenty of faith in the signing. Mansfield are a good side and he's been playing. 25 too, so room to improve. 

Of all the signings so far Hussey has been the most disappointing. Just hasn't hit the ground running! Early days though, but we seem to have a habit of getting nothing out of big name full backs - wilson, benning etc.

If the poster had said "I remember him playing for Mansfield because of how bad he was", I'd accept that as a fair opinion.

But to go on Wikipedia, look at the appearances section (which says 'Last Updated March 2020'), then start moaning that "he's only played 10 games, can't believe we've paid a fee", before he's ever even pulled on a Vale shirt is a bit unfair on the player, in my opinion.

That's why I made that flow chart as a bit of fun last year, it happens every time we sign someone. It's even worse when we sign a striker!

I know nothing about him, so I will wait to see him play 20+ games.

This is Alisson Vs Ecuador yesterday.  Maybe they just have different rules in Brazil, part football, part Mortal Kombat.

This red card was somehow rescinded by VAR...... when earlier in the same game the Ecuador's keeper had been sent off for a "Lucas Chop"1535516713_Equadorgoalkeeper.jpg.8576551b34e553d3904b43b14340c63b.jpg1535516713_Equadorgoalkeeper.jpg.8576551b34e553d3904b43b14340c63b.jpg

I think its been a very positive January all things considered:

Legge replaced by Hall - upgrade

Lloyd replaced by Harratt -  upgrade

Burgess replaced by Charsley - upgrade 

Politic replaced by Cooper - jury's out 

The injured Proctor being backed up by Edmundson.

Gibbo/worral backed up by Hussey. 

Whitehead off the wage budget, Profit made on Johnson.

Could just do with winning a game now.

Very fair way of looking at it. That said, I don't think we can say Charsley is an upgrade on Burgess until he's played a few games for us (not other teams). Jury's out for me, as with any incoming player
