As for Kian Harratt, as has been said, he was a key component in what was probably our strongest team of the season, v Swindon home and Mansfield.

This also comprised Gibbo and Taylor contributing excellent performances alongside the more regular players continuing to be at their best.

Harratt's stretching the line provided space for others to play in.

Sure he'll be missed. I just hope that the formula is repeated with a replacement.

I think after the ups and downs of the season, and there were so many, to produce such top quality performances in the last two games is tremendous!

Dan Sturridge anyone? Local lad, just about to depart his Oz team

Not sure he fits into our new club DNA.

Doesn't come across as a hard working team player...

Perhaps because he was wearing a Vale shirt at Wembley? And, I think he Tweeted something that might have been taken as a hint?

He was wearing a Vale shirt a Wembley?

I was recently informed by someone in the game that the average wage at Stockport is 4k per week.One player is on 8k per week.Frightening.

How will that work with the budget restraints in the EFL??

If Scott Quigley and Ben Whitfield are on 4k a week Howjy they have done well for themselves.

Dunno Jean,how do Salford get away with it?At least Stockport get decent support.I can only think donations or writing off debt to owners.

"Promotion winning frontman"?That's putting a lot of pressure on a lad who has barely just started playing men's football.

Kian is a good lad and a handy footballer but there is no way we should be heading into a league 1 season with him as an option upfront. Bradford is the best move for his career. Let’s not forget he could barely get a game here.

York Oldham Chesterfield Wrexham Notts County Scunthorpe. The trap door from league 2 takes no prisoners.

Add Southend, Yeovil ,Torquay, Barnet and more .

It's brutal. 

Thankfully days of looking over our shoulders and cacking ourselves are over.

Nope - it's still guff! Players from promoted Exeter / Bristol R / FGR and almost relegated Fleetwood and Morecambe are not suddenly going to grow wings, just because they're in League 1. Mid-table teams like Shrewsbury / Lincoln / Burton and Cheltenham are not going to get sugar daddies to enable them to sign players like National League Wrexham...which didn't quite work out! Anyway - good to see the Management are in a similar mindset with only 1 player going, and options being exercised for 2, and contracts offered to 3! No cull, this time - just Amoo and loanees Harratt / Edmondson to replace - with upgrades where possible!

Well equally consider that the best League 1 clubs have also tended to go on and do well in the Championship. Even Wycombe put up a good fight in their season. 
 

I agree, low end league 1 isn’t much different, but we need to aspire to be an upper league 1 club. Nobody wants years of mid table league 1 tedium. We had that and all it does is suck the life out of the club, fans get apathetic and want more.

We (Huddersfield) are blessed with a crop of really promising youngsters at the moment and quite a few were loaned out last season to various clubs in Lg1 and Lg2 (plus a few non league) with varying levels of success.

IMO it bodes well for both clubs that Harratt appears to have been well looked after at Port Vale. Depending on the needs of your squad I'd be more than happy if we sent another of our youngsters to you this coming season.

As long as its not Olagunju again!

It wasn’t just ability that attracted us to him it was attitude.  He was bought in to plug a gap, along with Ryan Edmonson from another of your near neighbours, which both players did admirably.  The attitude and passion from both was outstanding.  We found a team for the last couple of vital games which happily worked and Kian was integral to that.

Suffice to say that if you were to loan any other players to us, then a) they’d have to be sound characters, and b) have to go a long way to match the raw exuberance we’ll remember from Kian.
