  1. All those fans who were asking where were all these fans on a cold February night when we got good crowds against Bristol rovers and Newport will be happy if we get a poor crowd will be happy ,or will they now be moaning the same fans are now missing. Football fans hey.
  2. I would love to know how many times the ticket office get asked “how many tickets are left “ just curious
  3. Long gone but still have my strikes membership card , great days
  4. I think you met us in strikes night club in Burslem on Saturday night after the Burnley game ( I was with Paul Morrison ) we were talking to the manager Alan Salt, a big vale fan , and he was saying the atmosphere was great but the previous round replay against Hull was a better atmosphere,
  5. The lad was Paul Morrison ,now lives on park estate ,still goes the vale, did you come over and stay at his house for the cup run to the 5 th round against Villa mid 70 s
  6. Plus both Oldham and Bristol advertised on there fans websites for pre booking parking on dimensions car park ,and didn’t Haywood high start advertising a few years back fans could park on there car park, Chuck in all the street parking off scotia road and park estate I would say we are blessed with car parking
  7. The tannoy in the railway is shocking now ,is it ever since they tried sort it out for the bycars, penny arcade before kick off used get the crowd going ,today could hardly here it, my only moan of anotherwise great day
  8. I have 3 mates on the Facebook sight who post about vale every game , I know one of them as been one game this season and 2 haven’t been for years and .there they are saying how brilliant we are when we winning season after season, like the cookery lady at Norwich city said , “come on let’s be having you”. Pack the park for the last 3 games, this is a special time that doesn’t come around very often
  9. We sing and chant our managers name and sing songs for our players but what about our lovely lady Carol. Well when I started going vale in the 60s we had a goal scorer in Roy Chapman and used to sing ‘I’d walk a million miles for one of your goals . So how about I’d walk a million miles for one of your smiles oh Carol , I’m sure we are going see her on the pitch more before the end of the season with that big smile , we got do more than just clap this lady she is a godsend to us long suffering vale fans
  10. Listened to the commentary on radio stoke today, bowers was excellent , you can tell he is one of us vale fans. Now I never phone or text radio stoke but I was hoping that someone would phone in and let mr blakeman know that yes vale and Mansfield both have 66 points but twice he said Mansfield have 2 games in hand , not on us they don’t. I must say though credit to the radio station today it was the vale day from start to finish over our illustrious neighbours for a change
  11. We have got blakeman commentating on radio stoke tomorrow, thought we got rid of him to our neighbours
  12. 400 short then, for me we have a great home support in this division with very little away support to boost the average home attendance
  13. Our home attendance as been very good this season , correct me if I’m wrong
  14. R I P Gerry , I’m sure you have great memories with your dad attending vale games rob ,, I’m in my mid 60s now and my son is 40 , although my relationship didn’t work out with his mother I always say that the vale kept me close to my son who started attending vale in 1986 so just in time for the glory years and now we both go with my grandkids , so when I depart this earth I know my son and grandkids will have treasured memories of our days following this great club . Thank you rob for the wonderful One vale fan ,I’m sure your dad must of been very proud of you , my thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time
  15. In the last 2 months I have read swans book and Brian Hortons book , swans was ok but really enjoyed hortons
  16. Every team in the league can say if we did that if we did this , the table doesn’t lie, we deserve to be where we are and for me so far so good, now let’s get that winning run going to push us to the play offs or automatic places
  17. The only thing I can add to this is it was actually a steward who opened the exit gate I think to let one person in , it was obvious what was going to happen and first one fan pushed his way in then couple more with the steward trying on his own to force the gate back shut then the rush of a few hundred , the stewards managed close the gate eventually still leaving fans outside ( myself included) . See you Saturday
  18. Wonder if anyone from the club comes on OVF to see this thread eg mr garlicky or mr tideswell, what should be certain is the operators in the police box should of seen the chaos outside at 3 pm as there are cameras in that area above the turnstiles
  19. Sorry Jami but the club definitely put out info that all season tickets seats would be held until Friday the day before the game and then go on general sale on Saturday. On Friday afternoon the ground planner showed the lorne street completely sold out then on Saturday morning lots of seats became available
  20. In fairness to the supporters who were told there tickets would be held until Friday and then it is sold before that date that is a little bit harsh on the season ticket holder I would say. And this particular supporter was waiting all the way up to Friday to be negative from a bout of Covid
  21. Another issue , I went to get my ticket on Friday morning for my season ticket seat in the railway stand only to be told sorry we have already sold that seat ticket to someone else online , and I know I’m not the only one this happened to Wouldn’t it be great if we could send these issues to someone at the club and they could be followed up
  22. I usually arrive at 2.40 but for unseen circumstances I arrived at 2.50 I can honestly say the Q for the ticket office was the biggest I have seen ,well off the car park and onto the pavement at 2.50, I wonder how many thought it wasn’t worth it and went home. Next I go to the railway stand/paddock turnstiles , didn’t know which was for paddock or stand. It was 3.12 ish and loads waiting outside still but I would after say well behaved where I was and even a good chorus of Stenio is a .... I then saw a steward slightly open the exit gate for whatever reason and then try to close it again, massive rush and loads ( perhaps a few hundred just rushed in ) .I didn’t take the chance of rushing in as I had 2 youngsters with me but waited few more minutes to get our tickets scanned. So I get in my seat at around 3.15.
  23. Looking forward to the game but was disappointed when Friday morning I went to buy our four reserved season ticket seats only to be told sorry one of your tickets has been sold online and no seats free nearby .oh well the joys of being a vale fan . Come on you whites
