    I will bang the drum for Joe Sbarra until he's in the Lorne Street holding up a scarf.

    Local, 23, rifling 17 home from midfield, out of contract this year.

    Perfect low-risk, high-ceiling signing who could be that magician we've lacked since Politic has gone.

    Let's see how he does tomorrow. He looks very small?  Born in Lichfield.

    Lovely cross for the Solihull goal!

    There are a couple of videos doing the rounds of the Vale players singing about Harry McKirdy and Dion Conroy being an extremely rude word on the coach home from Wembley. Wish we'd move on tbh.

    You got a link pls 😀

    I've spent the morning dipping in and out of the salt mine that is their forum. One of my favourite things to do after a particularly feisty win.


    It's incredible. The entitlement has turned to rage. They think that they should have won the tie because well they're Swindon Town of course and they're seriously struggling to cope with the lesson their wonderful footballing team was taught last night.


    The lack of self awareness is staggering. Some actually saying that they needed MORE protection from our players by the referees, that they should be sending photos of their players' ankles to the FA...I'm not joking by the way....they'll have to explain how their players are so good at diving that they can actually conjure up bruises despite there being no contact most of the time.


    One guy turned on Swindon police because instead of dealing with vale fans they decided to film Swindon fans so that they could prosecute them for throwing bottles (I assume in self defence?! )


    My favourite comment is the one who says "what goes around comes around". Well yes mate, it did come around didn't it? 


    I know it's not very gracious in victory but honestly they can <ovf censored> themselves. Their whole club is gross and has been for years. I have absolutely no ill feelings towards Mansfield Town for example and seem to remember Clough was very dignified and complimentary in his comments towards us at vale park, a world apart from the absolute clown in charge at Swindon whose pre and post match comments are so delusional that his nearest and dearest should really be seeking medical advice for him.


    Lastly, it has been said and obviously eveyone agrees that for anyone who has "attacked" a player or thrown things at the away end then they should be banned for life and the details passed onto the police. But forgive me for not immediately believing the word of a manager and a set of players who I've just watched for 210 minutes feign injury and lie about being physically fouled. 

    The video from the sky coverage shows some unsavoury scenes where fans are pushing Swindon players but you can't really tell what is going on...it looks like a fan is on the floor in the middle of it and we don't know who assaulted who first.

    I'll take their comments with a pinch of salt until more evidence comes to light or any club/police investigation has concluded. And believe me, there's <ovf censored> plenty of salt going around to pinch from!


    In conclusion, <ovf censored> off Swindon Town, you got exactly what you deserved in that tie and outside of our local rivalries, there's no club who deserves to suffer a crushing defeat more than you.


    Up the Vale.


    Totally agree with this 

  4. Just back. Not had chance read the thread.

    First half we just didnt seem at it. Worrall didnt seem his normal self and their centre backs were winning everything (not sure why we persist with the same route when we can see something isnt working)

    Second half better when we pushed garrity further forward. Worrall to be fair showed some glimpes of his old form towards the very end. We also started winning headers when proctor came on + seemed better balanced with Benning on the left.

    To be fair to Swindon they had good movement all over the pitch / set pieces.

    Glad we are still in this - two goal defecit would of been tough, but we can beat these.

    Do you live up there? If so, great effort mate. Shouldn't be put in that position, but great effort!

    Edit - just seen that 100 tickets left post above. If there's anyone going up now then could you show the ticket office staff this lad's post about his possible 180 mile round trip from Leeds? We'd all be heartbroken to drive all that way after work through rush hour because of the in-person sales restriction, only to find they were all gone.

    All sorted. Got there 630

    served by a lovely lady who said  there were a couple of hundred left, but there were people before/after me, so I think we will sell out. 

    there were 5 others in the office twiddling their thumbs. Shame as they could be answering the phone and/or sending tickets out special delivery.

    anyway - roll on Sunday

    It didn't say in the article on the official site if it's open tomorrow, or if they'd be sold by the club shop instead. If anyone is up there now or is going tonight, you'd be doing a lot of Vale fans a favour if you could ask about the opening hours.

    Great thank you - im leaving leeds now so i will ask if i make it
