    Yes they are but is he going take a pay cut to stay at Vale when he could earn as much as he's on now somewhere else for another year

    If Pope's of the same mindset as you I think he's going to end up very disappointed. Do you really believe that with his performance levels, goal scoring and assist record, injury record, fitness level and idiocy on social media over the past 2 seasons he can demand parity with his current pay? He'd be well advised if he got any offer of a one or two year contract to take it before its withdrawn

    You forgot being a fat barstward

    Nah, according to some on here Pope had one good season, back in 2012/13.

    (incredible really that he managed to break various records for the club, by just having that one good season!)

    Enlighten me. Which part of my post do I need help on? Am I factually incorrect? Or is your response that of someone in denial that Pope is no longer the player that he was, of which appear to be many?

    IThe underlying theme of this and other posts 

    Your strange hatred of everything Pope

    Thats why you need help

    Jealousy is not a nice trait

    If it was literally any other player but Pope it wouldn't even be in question. His goal and assist output over the past 2 years since he got his fat new contract has been pathetic (particularly if you take out the penalties). At 36, he's not going to get any better. We've played much better and got better results since he has been out of the team over the past 2 seasons. His impact on games when coming on as a sub has been negligible (certainly from a pure change of result perspective). So many people unable to let go. The sooner he's gone the better for me. Mark my words, once he has, we'll see a huge upswing in both results and performance.

    You need help

    I agree. Didn't Clarke say he literally pulled out at 1-15 hence Gibbons rushed back. 

    I actually missed if it was injury or illness. 

    Or the weather

    So Ms Coates earned £421 million last year. If our owners earned that we would be in the premier, and a lot more people better looked after.

    Makes you proud have owners like ours. When you have loads of money, it is easy just to give loads, and everyone says thank you. It is far better to get your arse in gear and work hard to make things happen. Thank you Carol and co, it just is'nt about money.

    The Coates family paid over £500 million in tax just saying

    Thought second half we were a tad fortunate not concede as at times we were a bit lacklustre to say the least however when we did go forwards we looked a threat hitting the bar and post and scoring a goal what deserved win any game .

    Great win though gives us momentum going into final 9 final games .

    Colchester did well second half think they have enough about them survive .

    Great save from Brown won us the game well done Scott 


    By the same token we were a tad unlucky not to double our lead

    Good away performance

  9. Or just plain green eyed monster jealousy

    So, which one is it?! :-
    - pinched your dinner money at school
    - took your ball
    - picked on you / gave you a slap
    - stole your girlfriend
    - sh*gged your Mrs
    - refused you an autograph
    - didn't return your calls/texts
    - all of the above?!
    (you must feel physically sick whenever you go past the Club Shop and see Pope's image on there, along with other legends of the club!)
