About the fans

WYCLIFFE – I’ve been going too bloody long – 43 mostly painful years.
SUPERPOSH80 – I’ve been a fan for 35 years.
CHOMPY – A professional punter and a fan for 30 years. It’s scary when you actually work out how long you’ve been going.

How do you expect your team to do this season?

Up to four weeks ago I was dreading mid table mediocrity at best, now play-offs is the minimum…

WYCLIFFE – Up to four weeks ago I was dreading mid table mediocrity at best, now play-offs is the minimum.
SUPERPOSH80 – Top ten.
CHOMPY – I’m expecting play-offs as the minimum given the talent in the squad and now we’ve got someone in charge that actually has a clue.

Who should we watch out for?

WYCLIFFE – To be honest, on any given day we have a few but if fit Marcus Madisson can dictate and control a game. Hopefully he won’t show any histrionics when touched.
SUPERPOSH80 – Marcus Maddison.
CHOMPY – Maddison and Angol are both destined for bigger things. Marcus is insanely talented but long-term I wouldn’t be surprised to see Angol go the furthest of the lot of them.

What are your thoughts on your manager?

I was sceptical when he came in but so far he’s said all the right things and the players are obviously buying into it…

WYCLIFFE – He has impressed thus far and intelligently he has allowed club legend Grant McCann to take as much control as he had prior to his appointment.
SUPERPOSH80 – He’s wasn’t my choice but along with McCann he appears to be steadying a ship that was sinking fast.
CHOMPY – I was sceptical when he came in but so far he’s said all the right things and the players are obviously buying into it. This was a golden job for any manager with half an idea.

What are your thoughts on your board?

We are very lucky the club are happy to converse with the supporters groups regularly and hold monthly meetings with them…

WYCLIFFE – Generally fine but there are always important changes that can be made. We are very lucky the club are happy to converse with the supporters groups regularly and hold monthly meetings with them.
SUPERPOSH80 – No comment.
CHOMPY – Meh.

How do you expect Vale to do this season?

WYCLIFFE – Dare I say mid table mediocrity.
SUPERPOSH80 – Bottom half
CHOMPY – Mid-to-bottom.

A score prediction?

WYCLIFFE – 2-0 to Posh. Taylor and Angol.
SUPERPOSH80 – 1-2 Maddison & Angol.
CHOMPY – It won’t be 0-0. Those days are gone again thank god. You’re unlucky to be catching at a bad time, so maybe 1-3. Angol, MM and Bostwick.
