Squad was absolutely dire. Flitcroft and Clarke will be proven right to tear it up. Not one player is contributing in any substantial way at the level we currently operate, and want to be at the top end of.


Crookes. Conference

Hopefully with the change in philosophy of the club, improving players will stay and move up with the Vale.

That has to be the aim? It would be nice to keep making good money on players, which would feed back into the club for future improvement. But, it would also be good to keep some of the better players with us, for a few seasons, to build on their performances in the tea,.

What happened to "attack the post, not the poster"? I thought that was one of the rules of this forum. 

I'm bored with your constant attention seeking...

It was the  right decision to let many of the players go over the summer that were let go but IMO Montano, Brown, Burgess and Joyce should have stayed. IMO If Tom Pope's shoulder wasn't injured as badly he also should have stayed and quite frankly I'm disgusted at the repeated sarcasm and below the belt comments about Tom's time at Vale by the same posters on OVF.

Why are the same posters repeatedly comparing the new signings with the players that were let go, why aren't they being compared with the better players that were at the club that DC kept. At the end of the day the goal is to get out of this league and into Lge 1 so Vale need to recruit players at least as good and preferable better than the likes of Smith, Legge,  Gibbo, Conlon, Worrall, Taylor and Rodney.

It is early days although it does look like some decent/good players have been recruited during the summer but time will tell where the new signings "rank" against the better players DC kept and whether this "New squad" are good enough to get Vale into the play-offs or auto promo spots.

One thing that makes me chuckle is some of the posters giving RZ a hard time now are the very same posters who were so giddy, in love and over the moon with Bruno Ribeiro's/Smurf's clear out and recruitment of ca 12 lower league players from overseas pre 2016/17 season.

When it was pointed out on OVF that none of these players had any experience of the EFL and generally had only played in lower leagues in Europe and that not only should Vale fans be concerned for the upcoming season but also the season after if these players remained. Thankfully the players eventually left but the abuse occurred.  

A little realism was in order then as it is now. For the record I am not comparing the strategy or players Ribeiro recruited with those recruited by DC/DF.

Two incredible strikes from Garrity, and not to forget the sublime ball out to the wing to set Worrall off for the first. Absolutely brilliant and just goes to show that buying into the manager’s ethos and formation will pay dividends. Onwards and upwards.

Quite frankly I’m embarrassed at the comments of Tom pope since he left vale. Lacking any kind of class what so ever. Why would you compare new signings to players that we have kept?? Surely you compare them to their signings.....
