  1. He only got employment for being friends with the fleetwood manager. Foul man and god know how he kept getting hired. His prior record was bad enough and it is incredible the powers that be allow him to effectively mentor young men.
  2. Black and Gold looks like a traditional (at least in my lifetime) away shirt. Probably the one I will buy as the home one just isn’t a Vale shirt in my eyes. We have not had a black and gold away for a while, so this will be a must buy for me.
  3. Sort of believe that. After all Guthrie was brought in as a Robinson replacement and ended up below him. He did improve under the new management structure. There is no proof that all these new boys will be better. I do agree, that while he is getting paid he should be given a proper pre season. He has a year left on his deal and I reckon he will see it out.
  4. I agree. I don’t get this view the play off is some kind of achievement. It isn’t. Being promoted is. Easier automatically, play offs are a lottery.
  5. I agree it looks rather hard. What we don’t want is a poor start and confidence lost because it is so hard to get it back.
  6. Let’s just put it this way. If an out of contract Pope can only get a gig at Congleton Town, then what hope is there of offloading an in-contract Theo Robinson any time soon?
  7. Usually for Northampton away, even the one where we were pushing for a Playoff place pre-covid, I can usually pay on the day at their place no problem for the away end. 600 seems stingy
  8. I have not seen tickets from either club. I will be going, even if it means sitting in the home end. I just want to see competitive, live Vale action.
  9. Looking purely at what I saw from that game, I do agree. The black shirts thing seemed stupid given the heat, as it does make a difference. As for the performance, I don’t see much evidence of the squad being as big an improvement on last seasons as was needed. Very early days of course but the gap between ourselves and Forest did seem rather big.
  10. Well, it is a fair bet it isn’t Smurfwaite. Unless we are paying him!
  11. It didn’t seem anything more than a chance to test the squad fitness. The unusual 120 format tells you that.
  12. Much as I love Tinman and the Vale, it is one record I hope he loses on Sunday!
  13. Sadly profit is the point. In the 90s we had a few of the home shirts which did 2 seasons. However since the 2000s we have had a new one every season. I bought the home one last year but have only worn it twice due to the lack of games.
  14. To be fair the whole ground is one big portable toilet. It probably meets the regs that way.
  15. I loved (well crap performances aside) being able to see every Vale game home and away last season. It should continue in some form but yes I agree should be priced to avoid any financial fall out from attending in person. Regardless of the rulings I think any game outside the 3pm Saturday window can be shown on I follow?
