  1. What will that do in terms if prize money? First and second must get money, but we've won promotion in front of 17,000 Vale fans, after beating Swindon with a gate of over 16,000. Ticket receipts and promotion prize money must have earned us nearly as much
  2. A) what a win, I never could've dreamt it would that easy (even though we always seem to stuff Mansfield) B) I may never get my voice back C) what is the thing with the pigs about?
  3. Such an amazing atmosphere. I can still feel my heart beating in my ears. Now I just need to convince my wife that the atmosphere (and positivity) is like that at every match and she may come more often. She has 100% win rate and is coming to Wembley...
  4. It depends how easy it is to park busses near the Bycars and chaperon away fans to the stadium in terms of policing. Having busses right behind the Hamil Road end must be easier for them. But it definitely seemed to work better. Much better facilities, better acoustics (when my ears stop ringing, I'll know), and walking back down Hamil Road without a load helmets following the away team milling about looking for trouble was a novelty. Put some panels up so you can't see the pitch from the Bycars with a beer and all good to go
  5. McTurdy ballooning his over the bar was absolutely glorious. I wonder if its bounced yet? Up...the...Vale!
  6. 2-1 and we do it in extra time. Fifth minute of the first half, Swindon are shooting towards the Hamil Road end, soft indirect free kick... Swindon player breezes through our defenders who haven't woken up yet, passes it to the back post for a soft tap in. Vale do nothing for the rest of the half. Some people boo them off. 45 - 55th minutes, Vale come flying out of the blocks and get nowhere. And this time...for once... we don't concede a soft goal on the counter attack. Score in the 70th minute... fans behind the team... score in the 83rd minute. Shell shocked Swindon play like a pub team and we score two more in extra time There. Script written
  7. Are the Swindon fans being given the full length of the Bycars (or in the half right next to the Lorne Street)? I have a spare season ticket seat and my wife wants to come. But I don't think it's her best starting point if she's sitting in seat 38 with a bunch of teenage Two-Can Van Dammes sat as close as possible to home fans after having a few lager tops...
  8. Wow. Of all the ways we could've got into the playoffs "beat Exeter" wasn't top of the list. I assumed "didn't do as badly as Sutton" was our route. Well done boys
  9. Sounds like we're sitting back too much now. I'm out of fingernails, I'll have to switch to my toenails. Come On Vale!
  10. Away from our match, the only positive so far is that Harrogate have had more possession that Sutton. Oh dear
  11. Why are they talking on P&G that we'll have to "settle for the playoffs"? That the playoffs look the most likely? We've not got a hope against Exeter and I can't see Sutton dropping points against Harrogate
  12. Imagine how this is looking for the Sky cameras...
  13. Is it too late to cancel that big screen tv for the Exeter match?
  14. Last home match of the season, a win to get nearer the playoffs and still Salford's ground isn't full. Tinpot (ps, come on Salford)
  15. Come on Salford! I've always loved you and the way every single match you play in the FA Cup, regardless of your opponents, gets televised on BBC/ITV ensuring you get a healthy slice of cash. You can do it
  16. Who else has a few quid on Northampton, Mansfield, Bristol Rovers, Sutton and Swindon all winning to help mask the pain then? 28/1. Should be free money...
  17. And an injury time equaliser for Peterborough from the penalty spot 🤣 A successful afternoon all round
  18. Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. It has a full sized pirate ship that lets off a cannon for every point the Tampa Bay Buccaneers score. And you can get all-you-can-drink soft drinks. Also, it was red hot and sunny so it was basically a three hour sunbathe. Shame the Buccaneers were crap in the years I've seen them.
  19. Not strictly to do with the match, but I'd like to say how impressed I was with Vale's online ticket booking system. I saw mine and my dad's seats for Saturday were greyed out - then that I needed to log in to my account as they will have been reserved automatically for season ticket holders. Then when logged in, it highlighted mine and my dad's seats and let me book both tickets in the same order. Either I linked our accounts and forgot about it (in which case this whole post in nonsense) or they knew because we had the same surname that we're related and would want to book tickets together. Either way - very efficient and hassle free
  20. If any more getting called off we can just hand out Baybell cheese and bottles of Blue Nun and call it a "business meeting"
  21. "New coronavirus rules will come into force next week which include a recommendation for people to work from home, as well as Covid certification to enter large venues and nightclubs. It affects indoor venues holding more than 500 people and outdoor venues with a capacity of more than 4,000. A negative lateral flow test will also be acceptable" Could make for some big queues at the turnstiles... How will clubs implement this? Do we all have to wave our NHS phone apps (or covid testing kit) at the turnstile operator?
  22. No chance of being televised ... BBC/ITV will just show Salford stadium in darkness for 90 minutes and pay them the money anyway
