  1. After the tragic death of Lee I've set up a just giving page to try and raise £1000 for his family from the Port Vale family. It has really hit me for personal reasons as well. Won't bring Lee back, no money in the world can replace a husband, father and son . It's difficult times for us all but even a pound is brilliant. If you don't mind spreading the word to your Vale friends and I can either liaise with Rob on here or contact Carol to see about getting the money to Lee's wife and children. Rest in peace Lee and the picture on the just giving page reminds me of a brilliant

  2. Port Vale fans, ay! The owners show ambition and splash the cash to IMPROVE the football club, and they are met with reactions like I’ve seen on here and on Facebook. I know, let’s go back to the Smurf days where we were ran by a clown. I preferred them days... Christ, get a grip. Fantastic stuff, yet again, by Carol.

  3. Just had it confirmed by Statto Phil. Vale have now beaten all the other 91 teams in league games. The only team to have done so!

  5. Quite the redemption for Theo. Could have come out with two fingers to the fans, but a very nice sentiment. Fair play to him after a nightmare season.

  7. I think so. I also note that whenever something doesn’t come off for him the back lash on here is pretty intense. When other players make errors that doesn’t happen. If Robinson had cleared that corner back to the guy who took the corner, like Monty did, or run the ball out of play behind the goal line, like Rodney did, I’m sure that there would have been more made of it. Im not saying that he is the greatest but sometimes the criticism seems a bit OTT to me.

  8. A tragic update about Lee Collins - https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11729/12268589/yeovil-town-captain-lee-collins-died-from-hanging-court-hears Can I please say to anyone reading this and who feels suicidal thoughts to reach out for help. There are people who will listen, who won't judge you, who can help you and who can help you turn your life around. I would urge anyone on this forum who is suffering from depression to reach out to the Samaritans through this link - https://www.samaritans.org/ Or call them free on 116 123. Take care all!

  10. I was told pretty clearly that Walsall fans views on here weren’t welcome. Just before I was told to sling my hook I stated that I hoped our fixture would remain a league one for many years to come. I’m really pleased that the chances of that being the case have increased, predominantly due to your upswing in form rather than anything Clarke’s mate is doing at our place. I hope they re-unite soon. We have continued as we were when Clarke decided he couldn’t turn it around. I would say we are missing Adebayo more than Clarke. Adebayo doing really well at Luton since he left.

  11. Disagree. We are a far better team with Montano playing. This season has proved that.

  13. Very harsh and, if nothing else, shows the demand for instant success amongst football supporters nowadays. His first season in league football, was the sole shining light when we were playing absolutely awful, much better crossing than amoo and montano, yet written off by some.

  16. I kinda want Walsall to pick up some points now because they can’t realistically go down, as if they free fall any more there is no chance Dutton will be there for next season, and he’ll end up at Vale Park. Come on Carol, the no1 signing we can make now is CROSBY

  17. Not sure but I think I watched a different game than most. Don't understand this idea that it was a poor first half, it was obvious from minute one that the wind was going to be the deciding factor in this game and the winners would be the team that coped with it best. Their sole tactic was pretty easy to defend I thought and although Brown had a few saves to make, I didn't think he had to do anything more than what you would expect of him. Offensively, yes we struggled but as the away team that was to be expected, especially with the conditions. At half time I was quietly confident

  18. No just feel that if you have 400 people watching it illegally it's a shame for the football clubs ,fair enough if its man Utd Liverpool or a big club where they make that much money anyway but Vale and Harrogate are not big money earners and after the first 500 have paid the rest goes to Vale so if all out supporters pay for it that's a good 3000 plus tenners for the Vale . I get why they do it as it's a nice gesture but if you are Vale you show your Vale and pay ,and I hope when fans are allowed back in I can continue watch the games on ifollow especially away I think its great and wit

  19. I've done a bit of research on Rooney & he seems like an impressive chap, especially aged just 31. He's had a few stints at football league clubs in coaching roles, starting out in the Blackburn Academy. He was First Team Coach at Carlisle under Pressley & had a stint coaching at Fleetwood. Most notably bagged the Assistant Managers job at Crawley when they appointed Gabriele Cioffi as Manager a few years ago. He was the guy who took them on the League Cup run where they beat (at the time) Premier League Stoke. Cioffi is now the Assistant Manager at Serie A, Udinese & rec

  20. I think from Manny's perspective this is preferable too. 2 years of security at a commutable club, as opposed to potentially being released and having to up sticks for a 1 year deal somewhere. By all accounts he's reasonably settled round here. I do think this signifies that major change is coming. If Manny wasn't in the plans, then that doesn't bode well for some of the others out of contract, which is good imo.

  21. £10,000 is better than £0 as the only reason he'd be going now is the new regime have clearly decided with his injury history he's too risky to be given another deal in the summer. Disappointing in the sense of what could have been.

  25. She was fit enough to constantly keep up with play, which in the modern game [at this level] quite a few refs can't - that allowed her to have a good view of play and award decisions correctly She also had good positional sense, which many refs at this level don't have i.e. she had a knack of being in the right place to again have a clear view of play and award decisions correctly And she let the game flow as much as was possible Really good performance Hopefully it will just become a normality that doesn't need any commenting on as to whether it is acceptable or not

  26. Said it last week about Robinson and will say again today, absolutely made up for Guthrie. Both been working bloody hard under Clarke and both deserved a goal.

  27. Overwhelmed by the response. The target virtually reached already. Don't know how these things work but it's not even been going a day yet. Perhaps say someone like Mike Baguley could tweet it or Radio Stoke. Brilliant response as expected from everyone and lovely feedback . Maybe let it ride a week and see what the total reaches ? Like I said I'm not sure how it works but I've donated to one previously myself and think you can carry on for a while. 1000 is remarkable effort , thanks to everyone.

  31. Just wanted do a quick post- i have critised the club and carol a lot this season and rightly so, but carol deserves massive credit for getting things right in terms of flitcroft and darrell clarke. I know we have only won 3 games but what a breath of fresh air its been seeing the way we have turned it around. finally having a manager who knows what hes doing and we actually look and sound like a professional club. I am very optimistic for next season now with clarke being able to bring in his own players. look at walsall since hes left they criticised him and said he was n

  33. Though we have won the last 3, we haven’t only looked good in those 3. The only game under Clarke we haven’t progressed every game was the stutter at Cheltenham. From taking on a team shipping goals and looking lost and shapeless, he’s sorted the defence into a solid unit and now he’s working on making us a great attacking threat. The whole package is coming together and it’s all a slow building job that is constantly moving in the right direction. I’m amazed really that we have gone from where we were to a motivated, competent, strong, professional outfit. Well done Darrell so far,

  34. Good point, it’s got quite boring that as soon as something happens with Robinson someone posts about it looking for some validation or support in their view. No one else gets the same treatment when they make a mistake or does something that the poster doesn’t agree with. Robinsons played his part in the performance today and I don’t think he’ll be dropped for the next game.

  35. It will be tough being a Crewe fan, but ‘us fans’ were not in a position to do anything about the abuse that was going on. I personally think that people must have had concerns about Bennell but didn’t act. My boys love watching the Alex and I will still go because this club has been a big part of my life and it is difficult to just walk away. I feel awful about what happened. But I thank you all on this site for allowing me the opportunity to speak about how difficult this has been for me. I’m pleased that Bowler has gone and I feel that Dario’s legacy has been destroyed. I’m feeling pretty e

  36. The money spent on Director of Football, Head of Coaching, Academy coaches and so forth should be seen as an investment that requires a return at some point in the future. It's not a handout with the expectation that the club continues in the same vein. It's trying to turn the tide and turn us into a modern football that develops either players (From either our academy or 18-21 year olds from other academies signed to development deals) that either turn into first team squad players, or good enough to sell on in the future. Say all this costs us 300k annually (I have no idea, simply pluck

  37. We could have 90 shots on goal and they could be down to 8 men and Alan Buckley would trip over his laces and head the ball into the goal from 30 yards and we’d lose 1-0 .......may have something to do with it.

  38. I expected this kind of reaction - disappointing as it is! Firstly - it's not "we" who must have "some coin"...it's the owners. So it's up to them where it gets spent. If they believe - as many of us do - that the Vale have just been coasting along, both in coaching and fitness with a little lack of professionalism, over the last few years, then it's nice to see this being addressed. Have you seen his CV? Do you not think this is another positive appointment then what do you want? To continue bumbling along, with players lacking fitness and a plan B because they're not being coached prop

  39. Ah, doesn't matter, I see you spent 6 games lambasting Clarke, comparing him to Sinnott, and then barely posted on Tuesday and didn't post today. Makes sense.

  41. Have to say, Theo has acquitted himself pretty well despite his poor season. Considering he was de-registered and has been widely, and correctly, castigated, he's started these 4 games and hasn't bitten back at any of the criticism (bar some blocks on Twitter, which is fair). Things can sometimes get fractious on social media when players come in for stick. His words today are a nice touch and whilst he's, overall, been a disappointment I think unfounded accusations of him being a troublemaker/unprofessional have been discredited
