    Very reasonable performance considering the 7 changes and them having a few decent names out. Played some good football and two well taken goals. I believe Taylor is out of contract in the summer and I read on a Forest website that its not thought he'll be given a new deal. Special mention to the utter freaks who cheered Lloyd getting subbed; he didn't play well but was far from disastrous, and actually had 3 decent attempts on goal in the first half. Absolute weirdos who shouldn't be allowed out on a school night. Have your little vendettas all you want but please do your very best and get it into your thick skulls that denigrating a Vale player's confidence every time he steps out in a Vale shirt is proper strange behaviour, and you all need your hard drives checking. WAAAAAAAY Bazza chuckles to his mate, another destruction of a Vale player complete. "That's my job done", Bazza thinks. Well worth the tenner entry, managed to give Lloyd another mental kicking, as he leaves before penalties to take to Facebook to give him a bit more stick. Rant over. Great week, great time to be a Valiant.

    Amazing. We now have a terrific pair of owners who genuinely want the club to do well and are passionate about doing things correctly. We have a sensible manager who talks a lot of sense and was also tied with the club before taking up the position, what with his Father playing for the club and him being born I believe in Milton. And we also have a team to be proud of. They won't always perform every week and will slip up here and there, but we are no longer littered with foreign chancers and genuinely have what seems to be a close knit squad of old and young pros from these shores that are all chomping at the bit to do well, and want to work for each other. This tie is just the icing on the cake, and in the end it could well be the difference in January whether we finish respectively in mid-table or in and around the play-offs come the end of the season.

    Your comments really make you look very silly. Good heavens Popey has just become the joint top post war striker and in less games than Foyley who was also a fantastic servant to Port Vale. You will no doubt argue that Martin did it mainly in a higher league but I counter that by saying he was playing for a lot of that time with better players and several super wingers. How many would OUR TOM HAVE GOT WITH THE LIKES OF GUPPY McCARTHY AND AINWORTH PINGING THEM OVER ON TO HIS NAPPER.? I RECKON HE WOULD HAVE PROBABLY TAKEN WILF KIRKHAM'S RECORD.

    Labour will not win an election until they get middle England on board. You may not like to hear that but it's true. If Corbyn doesn't win next week he will effectively have lost three elections - 2017, next week and the appalling performance in the EU elections. You need the centrists on your side. That's what Blair did and that's why he won three elections in a row. You need someone who will look trustworthy against a cretin like Johnson. You need someone who is intelligent and charismatic. I'm afraid Corbyn is neither.

    I called them all cretins. Corbyn may be a nice man who works hard on his allotment but he is NOT a party leader. He is weak and seems to be manipulated by the likes of Milne and his cohorts. A leader with any backbone would have sorted the anti-semitism rubbish ages ago. He only got on the leadership ballot paper because Margaret Becket was persuaded that they needed a left winger on there to give it a bit of balance. He was a joke candidate and the joke's now on the Labour Party sadly.

    Don't care about the result. Just thrown limbs in my living room with my old man and shouted down the phone at my Grandad. Big day out for the Super Vale Away, £100,000s of money into the club, a repayment of the faith and work of what Carol and her family have done for us. Robbie's coming home; the Title and Cup holders away; edge of the playoffs - legitimately shaking. One of the best few weeks in our recent history. Up the Whites; up the Vale. Can't believe it

    Would be great if we could keep Taylor until the end of the season - he has made such an impact.

    Fair post for me, Heatwave. Was that Patrick Cormack's seat? You might as well pin a blue rosette on a pig there. Like you, I find it almost impossible to comprehend how anyone intelligent would vote for Johnson. Some would say the same for Corbyn but Johnson is streets ahead as an immoral, pathological liar. And it's a wide choice not an either/or. Johnson looks odds on, so the only way to stop him is to vote tactically. There is a tiny chance if that occurs. I could cope with a coalition of Lab, Lib, Green, Independent and nationalist parties. But, like you, a Johnson, hard-right Tory government worries me. And not just me but Heseltine, Major, Grieve, Stewart, and a whole host on one nation, right of centre politicians who have deserted the sinking ship and allowed it to be taken over by a nasty intolerant cabal.

    I'm sorry the word offends you but it is how I feel about our current tranche of politicians. They are a disgrace. The fact that a lot of people think Corbyn is intelligent confirms what I said earlier about all of them - you can fool some of the people all of the time. His academic record is poor and he struggles in interview when faced with a difficult question. Contrast him with the likes of Blair, Heseltine or Tony Benn and he doesn't look very bright at all.

    Somewhere, Carol is sat, rightly proud and beaming; a good chunk of the extortionate fee she paid simply to keep us alive, to give us all something to do on a Saturday, to carry on the weekly traditions of the generations before us, is going to be paid back with one fell swoop. Revenue from cup competions will probably exceed £500,000 this season. The buzz for the City game will probably boost walk ups over the Christmas period. Genuinely couldn't be more pleased for the Shanahans. They well and truly deserve a heap of money and a day in the hospitality of one of the biggest clubs in the country. Please all, keep in mind Norman Smurthwaite; I'm sure some of you don't like to recall him, or even read his name, but stay with me. A man who willing to see us liquidated out of spite; a man who would have happily rented Vale Park back to us; a man who single-handedly took us to near oblivion. He'll be sat, probably crying, in the lonely and sad life he leads. Reviled by all, the club he refused to care for now has a monumental money spinner within months of him being forced out. Just picture his face when number 62 was drawn away to the Premier League and FA Cup holders. Then picture Carol's smile. Up the cheeky whites.

    I don't think it's possible any longer for a Conservative politician to say anything truthful - on both sides of the Atlantic. They have discovered that it no longer seems to matter to their supporters as they, in turn, are more than happy to side with people whose association with the truth is non existent and who misrepresent facts, break the law, and mislead the queen. Integrity, principle and truthfulness is but a passing memory for Cummings, Johnson and the rest. I'm yet to hear any of them defend their record of 10 years in government. All they have done for the most part is blame everyone else and repeat a few parrot like catch phrases, bending over backwards to avoid scrutiny, questioning and hustings wherever possible. No matter what you say about any of the opposition parties they have always turned up, given numerous interviews, done a multitude of walkabouts, and openly admitted all journalists to their morning briefings. The comparison has been stark.

    He wasn't even our worst central midfielder tonight but some folk couldn't wait for the self satisfactory "told you he was sh***" nonsense. I know I bang on and I don't particularly rate the lad as a footballer either, but he's working hard and doing a job in the cup games for what will be a pittance. Politely applaud him off for his effort, go home, and stop celebrating his struggles.

    Given the money coming in, shouldn't we be making Forest an offer for Taylor to buy him asap? Can't remember the last time we paid a decent fee for a player, but he is one we should be looking to build the midfield of the future around.

    Let's not worry too much about City - they are a terrific team, and we will do well to keep them at bay when we play them. It will be a wonderful occasion, and one we will not forget. Let's enjoy the moment, and not count how many goals their multi millionaire players keep banging in. It may be Scott Brown's finest 90 minutes!

    Port Vale owner Carol Shanahan has told BBC Radio Stoke that there will be a major development for the unfinished half of the Lorne Street stand during the summer. Shanahan has confirmed that the section will be fully seated in time for Vale’s eye-catching Robbie Williams homecoming concert in the summer. The stand was initially started by former Chairman Bill Bell back in 1998 but to date has never been completed.

    He's a legend because for anyone under 30 he's probably the best Vale player they've seen. Morsy and Hugill became better players after they left. Pugh, Tongue, Kay Eagles and probably a few others were better players in their day just because they played at a much higher level; though were past their prime when we signed them. Every striker misses more than they score. I have a friend who is mates with Ian Rush. When I lived in South Wales we went out for quite a few meals. Rush was the best finisher I've see and he said he scored a goal every 3.5 chances he got. I suspect you were correct in your post about Pope's next hat trick as scoring 3 is partly ability, partly one of those games everything goes in. Given his age it's probable he won't have another one of those games. I think he's scored 4 hat tricks in a 14 year career. As long as he can carry on averaging one goal every 3 to 4 games he will remain an important part of the club, even if he doesn't play every game.

    Now you are being silly. Pope misses more than he scores over a general period. But I am on the other hand happy he scored (For the team) I'm not going on record to say I like the Pope personality (berating fans on twitter, drinking inbetween games etc) because I don't. I have an expectation of how a pro footballer should behave (You probably deem that irrelevant..I don't) For those who say he is a legend. He is a legend in his own right, but don't make comparisons to players like Naylor and Ainsworth...Pope will never reach that level and you know it

    Whatever revenue is generated we know that it will benefit the club unlike under previous regimes. If we are still in touch with the playoffs come Jan then this extra budget might be a springboard to bridge the gap and then who knows... Its wonderful to be a Vale fan again.

    I really don't have a problem with Labour's policies and may well vote for them next week, although what that means in Gavin Williamson's seat is it's probably a wasted vote. My problem is with Corbyn. We call out the Americans for electing the most unstatesmanlike President in history and what do we offer up as a choice for PM? A blond buffoon and someone who looks like he'd have a hard time as a college lecturer. Neither of them are in my eyes Prime Ministerial and either would cause problems. I do hope it's Corbyn as living with Johnson as PM would be intolerable but I'd still be worried for the future.

    Why would it pee me off? If he had consistently scored over a reasonable amount of games (As wasn't the case) and the team had not been limited to Pope ball then I wouldn't be one of the so called 'Pope haters'

    I'm quite happy to lose 45-1 if we score that 1 first. Just want the limbs. Those 30 seconds of primal, base emotion. I want to be approx 14 rows away from my Da with a broken limb and a blackout. Preferably someone who never scores like Gibbo. Pep can bring on De Bruyne and they can spank us about all they want. Just a crumb of limbs and £300,000 in Carol and Kevin's wallet please. All I want for Christmas.

    City probably quaking in their boots but Pep telling ‘em now’s a good time to play us after the defeat to Scunny a couple of weeks ago. Potential banana skin for us we need to treat them with respect.

    I see where Rabb (who struggles to make a coherent point at the best of times) has indicated today that US companies could increase the price of drugs in any trade deal. The US have been telling us for years that they think they are subsidising us and prices should be much higher. The NHS is not safe in Tory hands.
