I will bang the drum for Joe Sbarra until he's in the Lorne Street holding up a scarf.

Local, 23, rifling 17 home from midfield, out of contract this year.

Perfect low-risk, high-ceiling signing who could be that magician we've lacked since Politic has gone.

He was wearing a Vale shirt a Wembley?

I think the photo was in the same article as a badly-out-of-focus selfie taken with Chris Birchall? Was Aaron Ramsdale wearing a Vale shirt, anyone?

Are his family Vale fans?

Let's see how he does tomorrow. He looks very small?  Born in Lichfield.

Check him out BT Sport Sunday 15.00 versus Grimsby, spot Vale staff in attendance?

Won’t be Lorne Street Joe, seemingly any drum banging will be done from the Hamil from now on.  😬

Andy Holt has done a thread about the money handed to the EFL. It worryingly shows the gap wide I g with the championship getting a larger increase than League 1 and league 2.

 

Putting aside the worrying message the interesting data point is the increase of our share of the cash after promotion.

League 2 prize money last year was £600k (which will rise to £630k this year).

League 1 prize money this year is £900k (up from £865k)

So that’s £300k more cash in the coffers before increased season ticket sales, gate receipts, playoff money, shirt sales etc etc.

I think priorities are goalkeeper, RCB, a wing-back, a 10, and a forward. Would entail Lucas, Hussey, Hurst, Charsley being moved on.

 

My picks:

GK: Ben Hamer, getting on and released by Swansea, or Alex Smithies

RCB: Jordan Willis, released by Sunderland

Wing-back: Moses Odubajo, released by QPR

10: Joe Sbarra, out of contract with Solihull

Forward: John Marquis, released by Lincoln

 

I really like David Ajiboye from Sutton but he wouldn't fit into our system.

Thanks for this.

The prize money that you refer to, is that what every club gets for playing at that level?

Did we get extra for promotion?

I've no idea about this, important, stuff!
