  1. Enjoyed the interview very much. Miss those days. Very solid player never had a bad game. Nice one Andy
  2. I am deeply saddened and shocked by this news, like everyone else my thoughts were with Mike during his illness. My heartfelt condolencies go to his family and close friends. Like so many other Vale fans, I was not a close friend of Mike but through his radio, OVF, speaking out during the V2001 fiasco and latterly Smurthwaite's "an evening with" meetings, I feel I know him as well as anyone in regard to our devoted love of Port Vale FC. I listened to his every word, heartfelt, passionate, genuine and right on the button. I attended every demo, every march, every meeting and always looked to Mike as a leader. I remember well the march and protest outside the main entrance of the Crawley game, where many ignorant Vale fans turned on us and even tried to attack his son outside. During these times many so called Vale 'rally' leaders sought personal media attention but when push came to shove there was only around 8-10 of us who stayed outside for the whole duration of the Crawley game. I was proud to know Mike in my own way, he represented my love for the Vale and all his family along with ALL Vale fans should be proud of this man, I know I am. RIP sir.
  3. Although you may not know me Mike, I have shared every meeting and every march with you along the way, even when we stood outisde the whole game v Crawley when others deserted us until after the game! You are a fighter, strong and genuine man worthy of the respect of all Vale fans. I wish you well and onwards to a speedy recovery in the wish that we can all enjoy better times for our beloved Vale
  4. Gannon!!!! No further comment required.
  5. One of my dads favourite players of this era. I remember John from my first season in 1975. A stand out player along with Brian Horton. So sad to hear of John's passing RIP John. Class act on and off the pitch.
  6. Nathan Lowndes did nothing at Vale 2nd would be Marcus Bent simply because he was not interested in Vale and probably didn't want the move in the first place. Strange he left for the same fee he arrived for. We missed out on millions and never saw his ability - 'strange' deal to say the least. Danny Glover was no striker
  7. It has to be Colin Miles if only for his performance in the 4-0 FA Cup defeat to Hereford just before Tin Foyle was sacked. A 4 hr trip to witness one of the most abjectVale displays ever! Miles was the worst he was lumbering around like he had 'madcow' disease, got mullered. I think he did have a decent pedigree but for this game alone and one that lives long in my memory it's him
  8. Me too IC and the following Bratt and his cronies had at the end. We can only hope the darkest days of Port Vale are and will become an even more distant memory. I will never forget - nor should we. I will also never forget the many who demonstrated and fought for the club they love. Be proud that because of your efforts we are fortunate to have the club now in the hands of genuine people and adored by many fans both old and new. Stay positive and look to a better future for the Port Vale family.
  9. Can't see Oyeleke having any impact sadly, he looks way off the pace. He has the quality we need but thare is not enough time to bring him up to speed. The other Midfield guys are running their bo..ocks off in all fairness!
  10. No doubt we are solid and would be 2nd in the form league for the last 10 games and 5th for the last 6. Couldn't go yesterday just seen the highlights. Shocking pen decision and tbh I'm sure Pope would have scored Cullen's chances and should perhaps have scored his diving header? 2 pts gone, 2 last week - too many examples of this, however, we are still in there. We are a unit and if Cullen and Pope start firing I think we may just squeeze in the play offs. If not that is where we will fall down this term. Must wins v Crawley and Bradford but how many times have we been here and shot ourselves in the foot. Get down to VP and shout the boys home!
  11. The pitch has held up well for a few years now. It is credit to Speedy and his team. I have also noted that this season Vale exploit the width of the pitch and we eventually overun teams down the flanks and through the middle with Burgess and Conlon with Joyce sitting in. It's working well
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. They won't be there on Saturday squire!
