  1. At work at the moment, "watching" the game on the BBC Text service...I was expecting Orient to equalize with their corners at the end, looked a great game......
  2. Personally I’m not overly concerned about this transfer window, we are rebuilding after 3 awful seasons and it’s not going to happen over night, realistically we are 3 or 4 players away from being a strong team, Pope, god bless his cotton socks, is at the tail end of his career, always good for a goal here and there and will never stop trying but realistically he will never be the prolific Tom of old, we don’t what is going to happen with the Jake Taylor situation, Manny will be coming back in what is going to be a “make or break” end of the season for him, Worrall and Legge, 2 of our most consistent players, are out of contract at the end of the season and for me, that is a more important situation, yes we have made a few bob from our cup runs, but I would rather kept it in the back pocket and carry on the building, it has taken Crewe 3 seasons to put them self’s into their current position..... we will never be in the fortunate position that Salford find themselves in but I would wager that we will be in a better position than them in 4 or 5 years time, when the novelty of there owners has worn off...keep the faith.
  3. Could those move inventive than me make up a song about the Shanahan’s using the song Shang a Lang (Bay City Rollers)
  4. Sadly I haven’t got a ticket today, but I have enjoyed some great cup away days, Liverpool, Arsenal and Derby, I do hope the Vale fans in the home stands are “discreet” I don’t think I could be, hence me watching it on a internet stream; to all the younger fans who have never witnessed this sort of occasion, enjoy it, they don’t come around very often .....
  5. Excellent day all round today, pleased for Monty and his M.O.M. award, although could have easily gone to Leggy, Smudge or Joycey, to cap a great day I, along with several members of my family bought tickets for the Chris Bayley Suite which included a tour of the facilities, meet the players in the changing rooms seats in the President’s area and attending the Man of the Match presentation, loved the experience and finished the afternoon with a chat to our owner....a must for any Vale Fan....
  6. New experience for me tomorrow, going into the Chris Bailey Lounge for lunch before taking our seats, then man of the match presentation after the game....
  7. Whilst I’m disappointed that I’m not going to be able to get a ticket for the game, I have no axe to grind with neither the club or the season ticket holders, they are the lifeblood of the club and good luck to them, due to work and family commitments I am unable to get a season ticket, I only really get to about 5-6 games per season I don’t really fancy the idea of sitting with the home fans and I would certainly struggle to contain myself if we score; I certainly think that Rob’s idea of putting a screen up in the bar would give the club an added revenue stream, I was fortunate enough to have attended away games such as Liverpool and Arsenal in the past, fantastic occasions for all concerned.....
  8. I would imagine part of the project income from the game would be extra items bought from the club shop, such as flags, scarfs and shits...etc
  9. Chuffed with draw, saw Rudgey on telly, probably only going to be a tenner to get in and good bag of cash to come into the club.... what is not to like....
  10. Just got home after the game, possibly a tad lucky to be honest, thought there number 7 was a cracking player and would be top of my signing list, Amoo faded badly in the second half, he certainly frustrates at times...overall I enjoyed the game, certainly end to end and credit to Carlisle, they didn’t come to sneak a point, which was probably there undoing in the end. onwards and upwards, not getting too excited yet, but pleased with the steady progress that the whole club is making
  11. I don’t recall how he did when he was here, but he has a decent pedigree...
  12. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49410172 not sure if this good or bad news for the Shakers.....!
  13. In my line of work, I often see things which would shock most people, babies and young children used to convey drugs, unbeknownst to the child obviously, I have witnessed a young lad scared to death after being stopped by a store detective, because his “Mums Boyfriend” asked him to “take a box which contained a few cans of lager” out of a supermarket and wait for him..... on the other end of the scale I have seen mums and grandmothers get arrested for conveying illicit items into jails......sadly in the real world things like this happen, and while I wholeheartedly agree that searching a 70 year old for flares might appear a little excessive for a low key game against FGR, I pretty sure that some of those people who set off the flares at the Vale - Stoke game, had them brought into the ground by people who look “innocent”..... the stewards are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
