Having scored 77 goals in 294 appearances for Port Vale in nine years before moving to Wimbledon, midfielder-turned-NBC pundit Robbie Earle has earned himself a place among the pantheon of club legends. In a column written for StokeOnTrentLive on Wednesday, he took advantage of his exalted status to declare that if Vale manager John Askey can keep his struggling side in League Two this season, he hopes “the club has a good, hard look at where it’s going this summer and puts some proper long-term plans in place”. Not ones to be caught napping, Vale took less than 24 hours to reveal a long-term plan that could scarcely be more “proper” unless it had an added ‘P’, hailed from the Netherlands, answered to the first names Davy Petrus Wenceslaus Henri and played in central midfield for Brighton.
