  1. When I lived in London, I was always surprised that BBC London used to try and cover all the professional London teams fairly evenly. I don't see why Radio Stoke don't do the same. They should at least rotate the coverage between the 3 frequencies. Away from that excellent to see us bounce back so strongly today, always the sign of a good team, lets hope we can kick on now next week.
  2. They Ended up opening the gates in the Railway Stand and just letting people in counting groups of 5. No checks on tickets at all. My mate went through a turnstile were the scanner wasn't working so the bloke was keeping a tally on a note pad. So I would say the 6900 is more likely to be well over 7000 today.
  3. Interesting listen again today. I liked the discussion around the squad cap and youth development in years to come. Made me think of this report from a couple of years back around the improvements made in the vale academy in recent years. https://www.port-vale.co.uk/news/2019/july/academy-productivity/ I know this is from 2019, but definitely seems even pre Carol, there is good work going on, that hopefully produce more players to the 1st team, if they don't get poached by the higher Cat academies.
  4. Thought Johnny was harsh with his marks for Hurst and let Amoo off lightly, didn't think there was much to choose between them yesterday. I would add that when Rodney moved to the left, I think that showed how a 433 should be played with the wide men tucking in close to the striker. I suppose that's what you get by playing a forward in that position not Hurst who is essentially a left midfielder pushed forward.
  5. Taking your point about the dark arts on board lads and rewatching their penalty I'm 100% convinced if Conlon spins around, holds his ankle and squeals when he makes contact with Hannat we would have been talking about a red card for Luke instead of a Cambridge penalty. That's what would other teams would have done.
  6. Good episode today I thought, especially the debate about ifollow and the income for the club's involved. Also interesting discussing ways to raise funds for the club. Some ideas I think would work, like shirt of the back being taken online. Would be ideal if it was an option when buying your match day pass/entering your pass number. Unfortunately can't see ifollow being able to manage to anything that complicated.
