We Can't Even Score Against Grimsby

For the third consecutive home game we have failed to score. Today it was against Non-league Grimsby in the FA Cup. If we can suspend reality for a moment let's consider the positives; we kept a clean sheet and we are still in the Cup... Port Vale 0-0 Grimsby Town Despite a late rally this was as dismal as anything we've seen this season. We failed to produce a shot on target during the first ....

Reality Bites For Vale

After the near hysteria that followed our 3-0 cake walk over a desperately poor Northampton Town - Fans and the Club alike seemingly feeling that we had become a Barcelona-esque force to be reckoned with - we were given a huge reality check yesterday with this clinical thumping from Morecambe. Port Vale 0-4 Morecambe This was painful viewing. Morecambe tore us apart with relative ....

Vale Shine Under The Lights

It was all to easy last night for Vale as they cruised to victory against a Northampton team shorn of their pie master extrordinaire Akinfenwa, and seemingly shorn of any appetite to compete in a game of football. Vale won 3-0 without ever having to move out of first gear. Thats how feeble our visitors were. Port Vale 3-0 Northampton Town Vale lined up with Tomlinson in goal, Kozluk and ....

Rico Rues Red

It's never straight forward with The Vale, is it? Club Captain Marc Richards managed to get himself sent off five minutes into the 2nd half of our 2-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle after a penalty area grappling match. Rico seems to have spent all night tweeting his innocence, but ultimately if you get involved then you are forcing the ref to make a decision. Plymouth Argyle 0-2 Port ....

Garish Pink, Vale Socks And The Art Of Defending

What has gone wrong? How has a defensive unit, celebrated this time last year for its masterful dominance over our opponents, become so vulnerable, so disorganised? The 'Iron Curtain II' is now a wide open door, devoid of leadership and responsibility, breached at will. The alarming slide of our defensive prowess was there for all to see in the first six minutes at Vale Park yesterday, our ....

Rigg Sparkles In Demolition Of Stanley

Sean Rigg grabbed himself another brace as Vale took Accrington Stanley to task at Vale Park this afternoon. Port Vale 4-1 Accrington Stanley At times today, when we kept the ball on the floor, we were fantastic. Mesmeric. Barcelona-esque. Seriously we were that good - particularly in the opening 45 minutes when we ripped Accrington apart in taking a 4-0 lead into the break. The ....

Burton 1 -1 Port Vale

Doug Loft scored his second of the season to secure a point for Vale at The Pirelli Stadium tonight. Do we consider this a  point earned or two points dropped? Certainly we had the chances to win, Striker Tom Pope guilty of wasting some gilt-edged chances, but if we are going to concede sloppy goals, as we did tonight - and as we did against Crawley and Huddersfield - then we will ....

Valiants Sting The Bees

Vale came away from Underhill today with a fantastic 3-1 victory, a Man-Of-The-Match performance - and wonderful opening goal - from Sean Rigg, and a clear demonstration of the tactical nouse of Micky Adams. A good, good day on the pitch. Barnet 1-3 Port Vale Manager Micky Adams changed the formation for todays game, reverting to the 3-5-2 (or 5-3-2 if thats how you want to view it) 'wing back' ....

No Heroics From Vale

Vale couldn't reproduce the Carling Cup heroics that we have seen in recent seasons - Sheff Wed, Sheff Utd, QPR - and were comfortably beaten 4-2 by Huddersfield Town in the 1st round tonight at Vale Park watched by a crowd of just over 3,000. Vale lined up with Chris Martin in goal, Yates, Boom Boom, Collins and Mike Green in defence, Ryan Burge made his debut in midfield alongside Loft, ....

Dodds Proves A Point

Super Louis Dodds provided a fitting climax to yesterdays encounter with nouveau rich Division 4 new boys Crawley Town with an equaliser deep into stoppage time. And it was nothing less than we deserved. In truth we weren't great for much of the game, but when we did play 'proper' football - quick passes to feet, plenty of movement, all orchestrated by the magnificent Doug Loft - we caused ....

Port Vale 0-0 Barnet

A nil nil bore draw was all the Valiants could manage in their midweek match against Barnet.

Barnet started better in the second half but neither keeper was really tested and Lee Collins headed over the bar as ....

Port Vale 1-4 Macclesfield

Three late goals cost Port Vale a win and cost manager Lee Sinnott his job as they were beaten 4-1 by Macclesfield at home.
