  1. I’m in there Phil. Looked like it was aimed at the box above. There is an older numpty who sits right at the front with a big gob which spouts drivel loudly. Probably him. Clarke looked angry to someone ‘up above’ but was celebrating with the rank and file of the paddock. I’ve had my fair share of ‘discussions’ for daring to suggest that occasionally we might have actually committed a foul (Brisko being sent off for taking a guy out 2 footed on the half way line springs to mind) or god forbid the opposition may have actually scored a good goal!
  2. To be fair Covalan always keen to push on, so just being accommodated a little higher up the pitch😉👍
  3. You can say what you want about this squad, but they’ll be no good in Burslem when we are celebrating in May 😉👍
  4. Looks like DC has managed to pull the wool over the committee's eyes as well as Carol and Kevin’s then😂😂😂 nothing to do with turning us into a thoroughly competitive outfit within 8 months, topped off by the current good run of form! Congrats to DC / AC / DF all 5he back room staff & players as well as our excellent owners. Some recognition for the work so far - let the good times roll
  5. To be fair to the lad had a good first half, but was really struggling as he came off at half time. Soldiered on and visibly winced when taking the kick off after their equaliser. Still actively looked for the ball and played some nice touches before eventually making way for Amoo. Quality player, and hopefully he now feels at home with a couple of goals under his belt, and can then only go from strength to strength.
  6. Agreed. A valuable acquisition and a great team player.
  7. One thing for sure he wasn’t 6ft 4’’ at the end leaving the tunnel sheepishly, and not keen to ‘engage’ with Lorne Street when he was quite keen to do so 20 minutes earlier 😉👍
  8. I would add how ridiculous for all those subs to continue working hard day after day, week after week even though they weren’t getting game time. Ready just in case they get a brief opportunity to prove their worth and make a positive impact to help the team. Who could reasonably expect professionals to do this, working hard for their wages and keeping a positive, harmonious mood around the club rather than going Scrimmys mid week because they weren’t expecting to start at the weekend!
  9. That’s the problem with this squad. No leaders, no goalscorers, no character, and definitely they’d be no good on a night out in Boslem ☺️😏😉👍
  10. Agreed. In summary, he has cut adrift the deadwood/dross whether you like the term or not! UTV
  11. As an addendum to this - if he can remember who they are then why can he not remember how bad they were!
  12. You can say what you like about this squad, but they’ll be no good on a night out in Boslem 😉👍
  13. Maybe that’s why we only offered a 12 month deal to see if he could recapture former glories?
  14. Say what you want about this side, but I bet they are no good on a night out in Boslem 😉
  15. Agree. if the ref had seen it probably a yellow in normal speed - flailing arm rather than forearm smash. Shame as he had a good game, but as you say opportunity for others to step forward and claim the shirt.
  16. yes they did, but isn’t this part of the financial argument against them that it was false accounting as he actually paid £80m when the ground was only valued at £40m. This actually allowed them to manipulate cash inflows to the footballing side of the club.
  17. Agree, however fans also need to be more realistic. Many see cash injections from ‘sugar daddy’ Directors as an investment, and if Directors do not do this / don’t pay the big salaries they are accused of a lack of ambition - the old ‘speculate to accumulate’ response. This is virtually always over inflated wages/agents fees not an investment for the long term good of the club, but an attempt to buy instant success. Carol and Kevin are taking a more long term view, with investment in infrastructure and staffing structure to hopefully put in place a model to achieve success over a longer period, which will provide the sustainable revenue streams to support this. Hopefully the Vale Park faithful can remember this should this season not yield the promotion we all crave.
  18. Because he would be guaranteed to dominate their centre backs and finish every chance we create, as he did in all the games he didn’t play in over the last 2 seasons 😉
  19. Can’t find the clip now - anyone got a link please
  20. Didn’t someone ‘helpfully’ post a clip on here in the match thread?
  21. The club shop shop be cashing in with an 80's style, Flickers says, trust the pruhcess, t-shirts With a speech bubble coming from Popey!😉
