  1. Good shout that. A very enjoyable game from 2 decent sides. Cheltenham played well and I would like to see their No16 Alex Addai alongside the Pope, he is just what we need on that showing. Vale deserved the win imo. Much better than the Walsall game. UTV
  2. They will know who they have sold the tickets to on the system and also on ticket stubs. If it were an issue they could check, they won't as it will take time. I was merely pointing out it could and should have been done. I have purchased tickets in the past (or people have bought for me) for games at Wigan/ Old Trafford, etc and they are very strict on who has tickets. The name they are bought in are responsible for any issues arising regardless if they use the tickets personally. I was trying to help, failing that buy a season ticket and queue for 3 hours like I did.
  3. They won't be there on Saturday squire!
  4. Surely there was only one check list electronically shared avoiding ST duplication. If not they must be able to run checks afterwards and deal with multiple purchases on the same ST? I was suprised at the amount of time taken when purchasing my tickets - checking names/ our address/ season ticket details/ seat allocation/ finally writing on ticket stubs the cost and ID prior to payment. I thought that the Synectics people would have been all over efficiency and streamlining particularly security wise? The writing was on the wall when I queued for 2.5 hours for Salford tickets. It was a 3 hour queue for Man City tickets. I genuinely feel sorry for those that 'do go' who haven't got a ticket but who thought 8K would have gone in a week and a half. The old Rudge days was 1 ticket per ST or Travel Club member but this was also abused as people purchased multiple tickets as the club just wanted to sell (You know what Mr Bell was like with his biscuit tin!) I do hope people get sorted somehow, I thought that ST holders would have bought for friends and family who were non ST's? I would gladly help the club but honestly thought they may have learned from the Salford ticket sale, then again Crewe? I'm sure in future it will be better
  5. Thought we were desperately poor yesterday. The Walsall defence had it's easiest game of the season. Only Smith and Legge to a point were on it. The squad is thin and lacks quality. Service to Pope was again non existent and crossing quality was dire. Monty and Amoo were both way off, full backs neither defended or supported. Midfield was slow and disorganised running around like headless chickens resulting probably in Conlons frustration? Pope was taken out of the game, leaving no threat at all. Bad day at the office, we move on but Askey surely knows the limitations he has at hand. We are not a million miles away in this average league, those 3 points would have been massive to us. The Xmas period will define our season. Let's not be too down but we have and will need to be better than this showing sadly. UTV
  6. It's a difficult one for me. My wife and I are season ticket holders so it's easy for me to say it's fair. My daughters often attend games, so do friends who are not season ticket holders, therefore we buy them a ticket on our concession. This is not denying a genuine fan a ticket in all honesty, just saving them having to queue and guaranteeing them a seat with us. From the clubs perspective, they are shifting tickets quicker, know who is buying them and ensuring control and security to a point. I do sympathise with those who do not have a ST and deserve the opportunity to get a ticket. Not sure what the answer is tbh. I guess it's all based around statistics in terms of season ticket numbers versus walk-up ultimately maximising sales from the clubs perspective?
  7. Big wake up call. Forgetting the fact that we are now stable and a 'happy' club and I'm extremely grateful for that. We are desperately short to even consider threatening this league. We need someone to boss the midfield, Loft/ Cummins/ Brammer for example. I think midfield is the issue but saying that we shipped 5 and I never expected that.
  8. Really disappointed to throw away the win so late, this is maybe clouding my feelings re the side. It's no use keeping on saying we should have won/ we didn't and that's quite worrying particularly as we have had the chances to kill games. Do we have enough attacking quality, I'm not sure. I am a bit confused as to why we sign 11 and start 1 (Amoo) with the exception of Crookes who was here last term? We need a decent win lets hope its Tuesday. Legge was immense at Salford
  9. Agree. Bit concerned having made 11 signings that only Amoo (and Crookes) are in the starting 11? We play patches of decent possession football, good on the eye football. Sady there appears no end result, however, saying that we should have beaten Northampton. I think Askey may be looking to introduce change and introducing new players gradually. Remember the first 4 games of his tenure - defeats, then suddenly away at Notts County there was a massive change in system and dynamics! He surely has focussed on strikers and attack minded players, lets see. On first impressions it looks difficult to create goal threat, Oyeleke seems to have fitness issues at league level for some reason? Positive response required at Salford. Club is in a much better place now the fat controller has gone, it may take some time to turn the club around after he and a string of catastrophic decisions on the field have reduced us to near extinction. I trust the Shanahans and John Askey to take us on to much better things. Keep the faith.
  10. There wil still be sceptical people out there waiting for failure. Personally I'd fail a million times with people like the Shanahans at the helm. Anyway it won't happen. Onwards and upwards. The future and Port Vale are one in hand.
  11. Club shop mate. They wouldn't say who the suppliers were because of launch. I did say I didn't like the quality and fit of the errea kits.
  12. Target now is the end of June
  13. Quite like the away kit tbh, better than errea. Always loved the Admiral England, Man Utd and Leeds kits as a kid.
