  1. Am I the only one who is dreading the season starting next week. Really wish we had at least a few more weeks of peace. Enjoyed not having Vale around over the summer. Not looking forward to it but start it must.
  2. Just typical Port Vale fans trying to cause "mass depression".
  3. Sir, I don't often post on here anymore but I'll make an exception on this occasion to say how much I agree with this post. Also my biggest pet hate regarding these so called "Phoenix Clubs". Replacing proper Football League old guard such as Stockport, Wrexham, York etc. It's a shame that we're losing proper names in English football for bank rolled Sunday league sides.
  4. Wonder what we as fans would do if the worst did happen though? I can't see us letting the spirit/name just die, even if it did mean starting in the North West Counties in front of 500 fans.
  5. Just some musings that I'm putting out there. I was wondering if the worst came to the worst and Sm***waite gets his way or indeed if he doesn't (I think as fans we all need a fresh challenge and a change of scenery) would you all back and support a Phoenix club. What would your ideas for ground etc be? It's an interesting idea and if done right one which could provide a new and interesting experience. It would probably be run better and supported better than the original Port Vale. I'm getting to the stage now (after decades of off field battles and systemic on field failure)where I just want to start with a new club.

    Read the second line of your post and just lost my train of thought. Can't even come to terms with the fact that we are even thinking about and talking about the possibility of conference football at Port Vale Football Club.
  7. I'm a Psychologist and I'll say that sounds like a classic case of a 1st class t@sser. Tell me the time and date of any prospective meeting to begin removing this man and I'll be there. I'll also be happy to provide any input to a prospective campaign, psychological insights, leafletting anything! In all seriousness his very disagreeable personality, complete lack of social awareness and seeming inability to build a positive relationship with anybody could well be suggestive of something like a Schizoid or Schizotypal personality disorder. This complete rejection of help from anybody and seemingly constant need for self-dependency, no matter how damaging is another worrying trait. My prescribed treatment is a swift sale to Synectics (or any other interested parties) #Smurfwaite Out!
  8. Could Synetics not align with the Supporters Club in some way in order to help give their cause a bit of momentum. It would help to put pressure on Smurfwaite and a SC campaign backed by Synetics would automatically take away that argument that no-body is out there. The SC helped to gather momentum against V2001 before and they could do it again, this time backed by new prospective owners. No one can control Smurfwaite's actions but we could begin doing a damn sight more to put pressure on him. Carol Shenahan already has good links with many community interests in Burslem so I'm sure she'd have no problem making contact with the SC.
  9. Going say no doubt this is linked in some way to Smurf withdrawing funds or equipment (because of the money) from this area. Speedy did a first rate job for years before Smurfwaite arrived.
  10. The moral of this whole story is that you could easily just change the names and you'd be convinced that it was still 2011, Mo, Oliver, Bratt, Lloyd et al. So depressing.
  11. Ooooh could be Jonesy. Grimsby fans all seem resigned to losing him and their forum is going into meltdown.
  12. Butt Lane Vale Fan, take a bow. You feel my pain entirely. Finally someone who reflects my way of thinking.
  13. Wow, with that fine attitude anyone would think you were a native of Stoke on Trent lowsaintsfan. Very decent.
  14. Haha Party like it's 1998 ay ;) Must have brought back a few memories for them that tonight.
  15. I can remember when Vale first got relegated to L2 in 2008, I had this mentality of "we should be beating all of these mickey mouse teams". However I quickly learnt that it doesn't work like that and that combined with Vale's disastrous start means that I have a totally different mind-set this time. It's important to realise that although some clubs in this league are small some are very well coached, giving them the ability to compete 11 v 11. It's important that we don't become this league's Sheff Utd or Bradford assuming that gates win games. It's all about the players, how they are set up, their mind-set and how they are coached. Why do you think clubs like **ahem** Port Vale used to go to Maine Road in the 90's and consistently beat City? Take away history, the crowd, ground etc and just imagine our 11 playing Newport's 11 on an indiscriminate field, with no club allegiance, would we be as confident or assured of our right to a win. That's what you have to ask yourself. Tonight was a good point and I am grateful for any points that we can get at the moment.
