We have the views of a Chesterfield fan ahead of the Ernie Moss Day clash against Port Vale on Saturday…
About the fan
Firedodger says: “I’m 45 years old, I’ve been supporting them since the late 77/78 season, and I’ve been a season ticket holder for most of that time. I don’t go away so much nowadays but was a regular away supporter from 83/84 through till the early 2000’s. In 94/95 I followed the first part of the season via the world service from New Zealand and we were very average, came home at Christmas, and we went on a winning run, after half a dozen games unbeaten my brother was convinced I was a lucky charm and forced me to go to every game till we lost again, it was great run ending in play off victory…”
How is your team faring this season?
Our current form is pretty good, and so far this season I think we are exceeding most fans expectations.
Who should we watch out for?
THe danger player for you boys has to be Dan Jones hasn’t it? Only joking, we have a talented squad look out for Darikwa, Raglan, Jones, Ryan, Morsy, Clucas, Roberts, Boco, Doyle and armband seems to like playing against your boys.
What are your thoughts on your manager?
Brilliant, we are very lucky to have him.
What are your thoughts on your board?
They are trying hard to service the debt whilst building the club.
Which one Vale player, past or present, would you take?
Ernie Moss, complete legend at Cheaterfield, I hope your fans feel the same way about him.
A score prediction?
I just hope we win, obviously look out for Doyle as a goal scorer, is it too much to ask for Ernie to come on and score a last minute header?
