  1. Tomorrow is a very good time to play us. We have so many players out injured; Harry Pritchard (could be fit, Clayton Donaldson, Matty Palmer to name just three. Overall, we have about 10 players out injured - 4/5 being key players That being said, we have been churning out the results and we’re managing to get performances from fringe players in the squad. I’m hopeful Pritchard is available as he makes us tick. O'Donnell Mellor - P. O’connor - BRE - Wood Ismail - Akpan - Cooke - Connolly Pritchard Vaughan 1-1
  2. Surely if we're offering tickets at £20 (which is perfectly reasonable), then buy them at £20. Talk of £25 on the day, granted, is over-priced; but we want away fans to purchase early and reap the incentive by doing so. Another little dig at cheap season tickets, though.
  3. As mentioned when he first signed, he was always going to play second fiddle to Richard O’Donnell. Unfortunately for Hornby, O’Donnell has been immense so far this season.
  4. It was more about a pantomime villain who wanted to pull the strings and dislodge everything we have worked hard for. In all fairness, with our cheap tickets and large attendances, we haven’t done too bad. Promotion and League Cup final in the same season. L1 play-offs twice and reaching the final again, losing to Millwall. FA Cup quarter-final and beating the likes of Wigan, Arsenal, Villa over two legs, Chelsea at the bridge and Sunderland to name a few. This is what makes this season’s relegation hard to take. All of the hard work the previous owners have put in the stabilise the club ready for Championship football, and we’ve gone backwards. But anyway, what about Vale’s chances next season? Any early predictions?
  5. I suppose it would be difficult for anyone who isn’t connected to Bradford City to truly understand what has happened since Edin Rahic (joint-owner who left on Nov) took full control of absolutely everything at the club. I could bore you will all the details, but I really can’t be bothered. We’ve gone from consistently being in the top 5 of League One for 3 season’s, being a decent finish away from the Championship to finishing bottom of L1. In a nutshell, we have a very good squad on paper for League One, never mind L2. We’re not short of a quid or two and the fans are now right behind the club following the departure on said joint-owner. I’m quietly confident we’ll do OK next season - merely an opinion/prediction.
  6. To be fair, League Two is probably his level now. We sold him to Charlton 2 years ago for £100k - and it was great business. We welcomed him back in Jan because he loves the club and wanted to be back in the area. He might fair OK next season, wherever he is, but I doubt he’ll be a starter in what will be a serious promotion push for us.
  7. It’s such a shame, he’s a decent finisher. We shipped him out on-loan to Cambridge United and by all accounts, he’s faired quite well. I’m not sure whether he’s worth the risk in keeping him if another club comes in for him. We can’t afford to get it wrong again upfront. Our forwards are listed below, and apart from Eoin Doyle, we’re limited up top. Eoin Doyle Shay McCartan Billy Clarke Omari Patrick Alex Jones Dog ****.
  8. Thanks for the responses, Valiants. It would appear Guy is a direct replacement for Luke Hendrie, who has just signed for Shrewsbury. It’s likely he’ll be utilised more in the RB position - is this his strongest position, or is it CM?
  9. Afternoon all, We’re set to announce the signing of Callum Guy at 6pm - is he any good? Thanks.
  10. I don’t buy that, to be honest mate. We’ve done fairly well in recent years, doing numbers on Wigan (when they were half decent), Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Sunderland etc... Bit of desire, luck and a boisterous following and anything is possible in Cup competitions.
  11. Aye, it’s a right old trek down there. Sure we have a shoddy record down there aswell - whereas McCall has a decent record at Vale Park. Alex Jones has been a tad unlucky this season. He has primarily been used in the cup competitions, and has faired alright, scoring 5 goals in what seems to be hardly any games at all. He finished off the season well last season, forming a decent parnership with Charlie Wyke, but he’s had a few knocks already and has just undergone surgery - so he may miss the Cup game if you make it through. Decent player though, and I feel he’ll be essential to us at the business end of the season next year.
  12. Not the glamour tie either club wanted, but it’s a great opportunity for either side to progress - not to mention the £67,500 for the winners. I think I’d prefer to meet you lot than travel to Yeovil.
  13. We never travel well to Vale, we know this. But, last season and seasons before that the football has been dog *****. Take last season, we averaged 1,450 away, but only fetched 616. We did take 3,000 back in 98 (?) - wouldn't surprise me if we took 2,000 - we're more than capable.
