I’m hoping for a birthday repeat…

OVF editor Rob Fielding says he wants a repeat of his 2013 birthday celebrations this Sunday…

I’ll be crossing everything that I can celebrate my birthday in style with Vale safely ensconced in the fourth round of the cup…

It’s my birthday on Sunday. In many ways, as a Port Vale fan, it’s really handy to have your annual celebration around the time of the FA Cup third round.

I’ve enjoyed some magic birthday moments as well as some miserable ones (a trip to see Vale lose 4-1 at Upton Park in 1985 stands out).

However, last season the Valiants had already exited the FA Cup but I still enjoyed my birthday watching the Valiants canter to an easy 4-0 league win.

What’s that got to do with Sunday’s game, you may ask?

Well, those league opponents last season just happened to be… Plymouth! And exactly one year on, we face the Pilgrims again albeit in altogether different circumstances.

So, while I’ll be engaging in celebrations of my own on Sunday, I’ll still be crossing everything that I can celebrate my birthday in style with Vale safely ensconced in the fourth round of the cup…
