Vale fans are always respectful of things like that , absolutely no need to think it will be anything otherwise on Saturday 

Not alway going to be respectful, when you’ve got a large away following entering a ground blissfully unaware of the event taking place before KO though is it.  Also factor in the pent up anticipation as fans enter the stadium after so long without a competitive fixture.

From what I saw at training it looks like we are going with:

                               Covolan

                      Smith Martin Johnson 

Worrall                                                    Jones

                              Walker

                Pett                          Conlon 

                Rodney                    Wilson

This was the team played against the youth team this morning, with the likes of Benning Amoo Hurst Legge Proctor Garrity and Stone complete possession drills on the other pitch. Seems like DC wants to use Jones’s long throw as a weapon on such a tight pitch at Sixfields. However having seen Benning at Chesterfield last week I’m slightly disappointed to see him miss out (if he does) as he gets forward well and offers a quality delivery into the box. But it’s great to see we have strength in depth especially at the left wing/left back side as we’ve struggled to have one capable player playing in that position never mind two experienced ones which he was at our disposal this year.

 

 

Wise to post on social media our possible team🤔🤔?No wonder they want to move to a new training set up.I watch many sessions but never post the probable team on here, as opposition scan forums.

I'm sure the Northampton staff will be sat at home right now shaking in their boots, scanning OVF for inside information.

Spot on. I'm pretty sure a fan apparently watching a training session and presuming that the 11 he saw play together will be the 11 for Saturday is way at the bottom of L2 clubs match preparation info

Because I’m sure Northampton are going to be trusting a Vale fan posting on their forum and suddenly change or adapt their game plan accordingly, get a grip. It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to predict our team, you do realise their back room staff will have watch our recently games and see how we play and set up. I bet Klopp spends hours looking through other premier league sides forums to get the low down on their starting 11 🙄

Get a grip!I'm sure there is a reason for teams not being announced, until 1 hr before the kick-off, is to prevent opposition coaches to gain an advantage.Too many so called" football managers "on here that need to lighten up and get a grip!!Upset the clique at your peril🤔🤔🤔

How brilliant is it we have a thread for a league game again? Absolutely buzzing the new season is starting tomorrow. No idea of the team - I don't bother with friendlies as they are nothing more than a training exercise and are meaningless so I've not seen anybody play yet other than clips on YouTube.

On paper squad looks much stronger than last season with genuine competition for places. I think anything less than play offs should be viewed as failure considering the considerable investment made in the structure and playing staff. A lot hinges on Wilson and Rodney for me this year. Can they both get 15+ goals this season? I'm praying Wilson is really motivated to resurrect his career and become our X factor.

352 seems nailed on to start the season, reading reports of friendlies, I just hope we can keep our opening day unbeaten run going.

Exciting season ahead.....🤞

Interesting press conference from DC.

Admitted that historically his sides haven't started well.... referenced when he was at Bristol Rovers he had 9 points after 9 games and then went on to get 85 points by the end of the season.

Also said that lots of managers don't play the formation in their first game as they have been in pre season... and then said he might be one of them.

Given his history that means we are nailed on to play like we have in pre season.

🙂

Also funny to hear him being back to type regarding not talking about injured players when asked about Gibbo and Taylor by Mike baggaley. Yet on Monday on radio stoke when blakeman interviewed him live, he said that gibbo will be back in training soon and has been doing well at St. George’s this week.

Talk about managing expectations! 

I wouldn't believe a word he says in the media about his formation.
