Did someone say the Twitter feed briefly had news of Mal B extending his contract before it was deleted? A mistake in fact or a mistake in timing?  With DC on well deserved holiday are new/re-newed signing announcements perhaps being delayed so as the manager can provide a real-time welcome message when he’s back?

True Tony,but if they are paying that sort of dosh they are able to attract better if required.

Spot on Howjy,money talks.

Ask Wrexham though,it doesn't always work.

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.

If an owner of a league 1 or 2 club puts hard cash in, not loans, they can spend as much as they want. Otherwise Salford and Forest Green would be nowhere. Its different in the championship as that other lot found out!

Add Southend, Yeovil ,Torquay, Barnet and more .

It's brutal. 

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

Not forgetting Oxford United and Bristol Rovers.

According to EFL News we are looking at Connor Wickham

As he's described as a fee agent, I assume he'll be on a good whack.

With many Vale fans struggling to bring their endorphin levels down to something like normal it’s entirely possible that somebody jumped the gun on Mal, alternatively maybe it hasn’t happened.  He didn’t play much and will have to weigh that up.  Most players go straight on holiday, plus it’s agents and club representatives doing most of the haggling, so some deals will be delayed for that reason.  Whatever, your point with regards to DC is a good one.  Phone off, rebuilding family was what I think he said.

Gutted about Kian but having read these posts I understand what is best for all. Probably the most influential loan player since David Lowe who was  outstanding. 

 

Kian will be a legend forever in my eyes. What a great future he has in front of him. We may have not seen the last of him yet. Good luck lad.

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. 

Yes - so many things prove the gulf between Leagues isn't massive, I wasn't suggesting we shouldn't be ambitious - just let's assess the team that fought so hard to get our promotion ought to be given a chance to see how well we can do? I know we didn't exactly piss the League - but we were 7(?) points off being Champions! There may well be people in - and I would hope so - but not wholesale changes. Need to replace Harratt and Edmondson, unless Ryan's coming back next season? And Connor Hall's clone would be good for CH addition. But that's not much of a change. We needn't be frightened of the January window if we need to strengthen?

Tony Sealy, David Lowe and Harratt . 3 great loans .

Edmonson was actually better but because of his impact at crucial times Harratt will be remembered for years to come

I really like Edmunsdon but I don’t really know what his position is. The lad worked his socks off too here and I wouldn’t be disappointed if we signed him up again.

For a striker, he did supremely as a wing back.

His cross in the game against...? was sublime.

I remember at a very early age, and someone will correct me here, but im pretty sure we were crammed in behind the nets at Stockport in the old wooden stand and Sealy was tearing them apart. Remember the stand bouncing when we scored - must have been early 80s 

One of my fav games… who was up front for us that day ?
