  1. I think men find it harder to talk about depression and suicide for fear of just being told to "man up", even by their own friends and family. I have been in some bad places over the years, (I am doing much better over the last 5 years or so) and have been worried about talking for that reason and when I have tried to talk about it the people that don't just assume you are weak just don't know what to say to you. This is a problem that needs to be de-stigmatised and talked about more so fair play to Colin and David for speaking out. I have lost a few friends over the years to suicide and only in the last week or 2 a good friend at work has lost 2 close friends and a cousin. Something needs to change. Even clicking post on this message took some extra thinking time.
  2. Can no longer click on likes or notifications. I'm using android.
  3. Shall we have a pool on when RZ posts? I am going for straight after the next loss.
  4. Where was RZ last week? Didn't see him on the match thread during or after the game?
  5. Can we make 11 changes? I wasn't sure if that was allowed in this cup?
  6. I have a signed LDV sponsor board from that game. Not sure where it came from but my Dad gave it to me and it's hanging on the wall in the darts room with a few other bits and pieces collected over the years
  7. I too was wondering where these guaranteed 15 goals a season have been recently? Maybe if he spent more time on the training ground and less time leathered in Burslem golf club clubhouse he might have warranted another season.
  8. Shambles from Vale off the pitch by all accounts. Lets hope the team make up for it on the pitch.
  9. Both teams to score, Vale to win. Easy money. Vale to win 4-2, not so easy money. Gutted I am at work for this one. Almost worth quitting work and reapplying for the job tomorrow!
  10. Yeah that sounds about right. My mistake
  11. I think so, he had another ticket for the hamil road end with it as well, was this last year? Im pretty sure he said it was this seasons but might be wrong.
  12. My dad has his posted out weeks ago.
  13. First opening day loss for how long? Oh well. No need to panic only 2% of the season played. Onwards and upwards.
  14. Did you enter a competition to win a vale shirt?
  15. It looks more magnolia than gold and it looks like it needs another coat. Bit disappointed with both strips this time, both very bland and meh!
  16. Probably written after leaving someone's kitchen at 7am. At least he isn't doing it the night before a game anymore, well not for us anyway.
  17. Pope is a true vale legend. Lost count of the amount of mentals he has been responsible for...man City, Cheltenham 3-2 at home and Rotherham one new year's eve come to mind straight away, not forgetting the roly poly goal against Wimbledon on the tele. Having said all that it was time for him to go and I think he could have played at a higher level than Congleton. But, I know tom likes to stay close to home and I doubt he needs the coin desperately so fair play to him and good luck. Thanks for the memories popey they won't be forgotten quickly.
  18. My dad has had his season ticket delivered last week, well 2 tickets, one in his usual seat and another seat in the Hamil road end for some reason (covid?)
  19. More confirmation of what a b ell en d you are
  20. Maybe the players weren't ready but that was on Askey as the manager to make sure that they were.
  21. Getting a bit more nervous now but this has to be a better chance even than 2018 to get to a final. Come on England do us proud. Head says close 1-0 or 2-1 heart is saying another 4-0.
  22. You seem to be in a minority with that opinion
