I mentioned Hladky to some friends as someone I'd like - however he's been linked with Aberdeen this summer but wouldn't pay Ipswich's £100k asking price. Would probably rule us out too.

I like your other shouts!

 

£100k seems steep for us to fork out for a GK, probably a reflection of the fact his contract runs until 2024. 

I daren’t suggest a loan, we all know our form with loaning keepers from Ipswich 🙄

I can’t see us going into a season in league 1 with Worrall as starting RWB personally. Cass will play RCB and I think we will sign a starting RWB 

Wozza has become the type of player who is always there, always does a job.

So it's hard to imagine him not being first choice in any system.

Looking forward to seeing who we bring in to challenge him for rwb.

Sorry for taking the thread off subject slightly but all this talk of whether x,y or z can do a job in League 1, I thought I'd link a pretty informative article on the different playing styles you can expect in each football league in comparison to each other.

The way he played at Wembley is how he should be playing on our big pitch - not too different from Wembley's!

Unofficial Vale rumour linking us to Jamal Blackman - GK from Chelsea 

I think he was released by Huddersfield after a short-term deal there.

He's in the Tomas Holy height category - six foot six or seven....

Incidentally, how many moves have UV picked up this summer? I can't remember them hinting at either the Cass or Ojo signing? 

Is the club tightening up on this sort of thing perhaps?

No offence to UV who seem to be passionate Vale fans and are clearly very popular, but if it benefits the club to keep their dealings more confidential then so be it.

If keeping it secret prevents any deals falling through then that's got to be a good thing.

They did hint at Ojo on the day of the signing.

He did get the Funso Ojo one tbf.

I like a rumour, it's fun, whether they happen or not, it alleviates some of the close season boredom!

Splitting hairs a bit here - but hinting on the day of the signing is not going to be as damaging because presumably the player is spotted doing the photo shoots and so on. As the deal has already been signed and the player is literally in the building, there's no real damage in it being hinted at a few hours early as that's hardly going to effect the deal and alert other clubs.

I do think there's less of the rumours of deals posted days beforehand though. I remember in recent seasons we had hints literally days or even weeks in advance.

This is not me being a killjoy (after all I am posting on a rumours thread) but I just wondered if with the more professional recruitment process going on , whether the club had also tightened up on confidentiality etc. 

I do like looking at the UV tweets from time to time. I think as long as you take them for what they are - rumours - then it's all a bit of fun, keeps the interest going during the summer and the picture clues keep everyone entertained too.
