News Stories for John McCombe
|The Valiants Are Back Sat 19th Feb 2011 07:53|
Vale sparkled under the floodlights and registered a well deserved 2-1 victory over Bradford City in last nights televised clash. Are we beginning to turn the corner under Jim Gannon? The evidence suggests that this is very much the case, we are once again solid at the back and are now creating chances. The Valiants are back on track...
|We're On Telly Friday Night! Tue 15th Feb 2011 12:17|
Our Friday night clash with Bradford City will be shown live on SKY Sports, so let's hope to God that we don't serve up anything as painfully shocking as the first 70 minutes of Saturdays encounter with Northampton Town.
|Why Is Exodus Geohaghon At Vale Park? Sun 13th Feb 2011 11:28|
Just how woeful was Exodus during yesterdays 1-1 draw with Northampton Town? One of the most astonishingly bereft virtuoso displays in recent times at Vale Park. Up there with Neil Mackenzie and Caig Rocastle. He was utterly dreadful. "He's just like a fat Kevin Francis" was the remark made in the Bycars toilets at half-time...
|Gaz Owen Out For A Month? Mon 07th Feb 2011 20:54|
Defender Gareth Owen looks likely to spend at least a month out of action after suffering a fractured ankle during Saturdays 1-1 draw at Wycombe. Owen will find out tomorrow (Tuesday) exactly what's what when he meets a specialist.
|Is A Bee Sting Ever Fatal? Sun 23rd Jan 2011 18:18|
What surprises does Jim Gannon have up his sleeve for us on Tuesday evening for the visit of Barnet? Boomer partnering John McCombe at the back in the absence of Gareth Owen? A seven man midfield? Sean Rigg getting a game? Anything, it appears, is possible with Gannon at the helm...
|McCombe Drags Us Out Of Disaster Sun 07th Nov 2010 07:55|
'Boom Boom' John McCombe was our hero at Dartford yesterday with a late equaliser to give us a thoroughly undeserved draw in this FA Cup battle. Make no mistake we were a very clear second best, and could quite easily have been three nil down and playing with just ten men when the half-time whistle was blown.
|Burton On Tuesday Night Sun 31st Oct 2010 17:34|
Beer, Paddy Considine, Marmite and Indie space rockers. Vale make the short trip along the A50 on Tuesday evening to face Burton Albion. Burton are currently 13th in the table and have lost three of their last four games, including yesterdays 2-1 defeat at Macclesfield.
|Port Vale 2-1 Crewe Alex Sun 31st Oct 2010 12:09|
Vale returned to winning ways with this sparkling victory over our close neighbours and good friends Crewe Alex, and after the inexplicable run of less than impressive form we have displayed recently it was fantastic to see all the players up for this derby game. We were amazing throughout. I have to say, I was slightly apprehensive before the game - Crewe have hit some free-scoring form, but my concerns disappeared almost as soon as the game kicked off. We were definitely 'up for it'.
|Shrewsbury Tonight Tue 28th Sep 2010 08:45|
Top-Of-The-League Vale take on second-in-the-table Shrewsbury tonight in a massive game at Vale Park. This fixture has become a little bit 'spicy' over the past couple of seasons, particularly after the game at their gaff a couple of seasons ago when a Marc Richards goal six minutes into stoppage time gave us a 2-1 victory.
|We Are Top Of The League! Sat 25th Sep 2010 22:17|
Vale went top of League 2 this afternoon courtesy of a magnificent strike from the fantastic Marc Richards and a coolly taken second from Louis Dodds. Is was hard work though, Accrington Stanley showed exactly why they were unbeatable before their trip to Vale Park, frustrating us with a doggedly defensive display in the first half.
