One For The Road Gary?

Midfielder Gary Roberts has today had his contracted cancelled by Vale after turning up for training on Wednesday half cut. This is the second time he has turned up still bladdered from the night before, and I really can't see that Micky Adams had any choice but to sack him. Vale are now the fourth club to dispense with his services, and all for the same reason. It's a big, big shame. Roberts is ....

Salisbury City In The 2nd Round

Vale will travel to Wiltshire in the 2nd round of The FA Cup after the formality of beating Grimsby Town in a replay is completed! Given that we can't score at Vale Park at the present an 'away' trip is definitely a bonus for us, and Wiltshire is a great place for a spot of 'sightseeing' as well - Stonehenge, the big chalk horse, and I'm pretty sure that the bloke with a huge boner on the side ....

Let's All Be Friends Now

Investment has now come into the Club, Bratt has gone, Oliver will soon be gone. Are we all now happy? It seems so. Both the 'B&G' and NLV groups have issued statements saying that the protests are over, Dave Felstead has been smeared and hounded (disgracefully so) out of his position as Chairman of the Supporters Club, and has been replaced by Pete Williams. We are, apparently, all ....

End Of The Line For V2001?

Tomorrow - Monday 12th September - is a momentous day for the V2001 Board. Interim Chairman Mike Lloyd and Chief Exec Perry Deakin (Pictured above) are back from their travels in America where they have looked to cement investment to the tune of "millions". We are promised that this will be the biggest investment that has ever come into the Club. If they fail to come good with their ....

Haldane Suffers More Bad Luck

Vale Boss Micky Adams has stated that it is far to soon to talk about a possible comeback date after Lewis Haldane broke his leg in two places during Tuesday nights Johnstone Paint defeat at Tranmere. It's appalling bad luck for Haldane. Last season was pretty much written off for him after he was hospitalised following a mosquito bite in the summer - in fact if reports are to be believed ....

Paint Pot Glory Begins In Birkenhead

The Mighty Valiants travel to Tranmere Rovers in the 1st round of The Paint Pot Trophy and the mantra from Micky Adams surely has to be 'death or glory' in this most esteemed of cup competitions. The match will take place in the week commencing Monday 29th August. Is there anything on Earth more wretched than The Johnstones Paint Trophy? Other than a certain trio of directors at Vale Park ....

Shrewsbury V Port Vale

The Valiants are struggling at the moment and they would probably not choose to play in form Shrewsbury if they had a choice, unfortunately they don’t so they must step up to the challenge and try to spoil the Shrews party. Dean Glover has looked to the loan market to strengthen his squad and on-loan left back Damien McCrory looks likely to start. Paul Edwards may also have earned a place ....

Mcgregor Another Departure Out Of Vale Park

Vale defender Mark McGregor has signaled his intentions to leave the club following our relegation to League Two last Saturday. Whilst it is expected that Lee Sinnott’s squad will be fundamentally different come August time, I do wonder whether these players have any sense of moral obligation to the club in terms of waiting until the season has officially ended before running out of the door. McGregor, 31, is the second player in as many days to leave the club following Justin ....

Leeds Have To Be Backed Against Vale

Leeds simply have to be backed at even money to beat bottom side Port Vale at Vale Park on Saturday. Gary McAllister's start as Leeds manager has not been particularly great but back-to-back wins against Swindon and Bournemouth before Tuesday's home game with Cheltenham suggested things were on the up. However, Leeds were far too wasteful in the final third of the pitch and got hit on the break to fall to a sloppy and damaging 2-1 home defeat. It was Leeds' first defeat in five league ....

Sinnott Likes Loans

Port Vale boss Lee Sinnott is confident Port Vale's policy of signing young players on loan from Premier League sides bodes well for the club's future. Chris Herd and Tobias Mikaelsson have both joined the Potteries outfit from Aston Villa while from across the City at Birmingham, they allowed Krystian Pearce and Dave Howland to join Sinnott’s side. Sinnott believes it will bring the clubs closer which will stand Vale in good stead for signing more players should the need arise in the ....

Vale 1-3 Bournemouth

This game should have been marked down as a must win game for Vale, but at the end of the 90 minutes it was glaringly obvious that this team isn’t good enough yet to get out of trouble. This result is a massive blow for Vale who are now ten points short of getting out of the bottom four, a tall order for a team who are good, but this lot aren’t. Strangely it was the home side that started off the better of the two sides with Herd doing well down the right and getting in a cross ....

Birmingham Midfielder Arrives

Port Vale have landed Birmingham City youngster David Howland on loan until the end of the season. The midfielder is a Northern Ireland Under-21 international but is yet to break into the first team at St Andrews, however he is a regular in the reserve side. The midfielder only heard of Vale's interest when he arrived for training on Tuesday morning and he now can’t wait to get into action. He told the club's official website: "I got into training and I was informed about the ....

Five Players To Be Shipped Out

Lee Sinnott has now reached the stage where he has to get rid of some players before anymore can be brought in. The names on the list are Shane Tudor, Mark McGregor, Charlie O'Loughlin, Paul Edwards and Jason Talbot. Sinnott told the club’s official website: "What we have said is they are available on loan or for a permanent transfer and we will ....

Lost Because Of Poor Decisions?

“Poor decision making" was apparently the reason Vale went down 2-0 to top of the table Swansea City at the weekend according to manager Lee Sinnott. Vale fell behind in the first half when Ferrie Bodde struck and by the time Darren Pratley had added the second in the second half, the game was all over for Vale, while the win left the Swans five points clear at the top of the league. "We have been beaten by three of the tough sides since I took over as manager of the club and ....

Vale Take On Swansea

This might not be the best time to face Swansea City as they are at the top of the table looking to open a six point gap, while they will also be looking to bounce back after the midweek FA Cup disaster. Manager Lee Sinnott will be making changes to his side even though they beat Millwall last weekend, for starters Robin Hulbert will not be available for some time because he sustained a broken collarbone. Danny Whitaker will have a late fitness test, he has been suffering from a back problem, ....
