  1. Glad I didn't spend too long looking for the DAB radio this afternoon
  2. It could be worse - we could be Burton. 10 men, 0-4 down at half time
  3. Could then not have spent a bit of the ground improvement money on the scoreboard? Just so it tells how many minutes have gone. Back to checking a betting website to see how many minutes are left
  4. That was every goal ever from last season. As soon as they'd got it out wide level with the penalty spot you knew a low cross and a soft tap in would follow
  5. Great idea for the club and it was a great atmosphere in there for the Swindon match, but I hope they've got a plan for security and segregation. There seems to be an ever increasing amount of numpties doing "Eastern European Football Hooligan" cosplay at football recently. Seeing every away match as some sort of battle where they must set off as many flares, provoke as many people and cause as much damage as possible. One thing good about Vale Park is that the Hamil Road end is separate from the rest of the stadium, with bus parking behind it for these youths in their fake Stone Island jackets to be shepherded back on to with minimal fuss. And one good thing about the Lorne Street was that it is far away even from that. And we're not just playing Stevenage and Salford with a few hundred fans now. So they will be right up amongst it after two cans of lager. Anyway.. I'm sure they have a plan, and in Carol I trust.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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...
  9. 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
  10. McTurdy ballooning his over the bar was absolutely glorious. I wonder if its bounced yet? Up...the...Vale!
  11. 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
  12. 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...
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. Away from our match, the only positive so far is that Harrogate have had more possession that Sutton. Oh dear
  16. 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
  17. Imagine how this is looking for the Sky cameras...
  18. Is it too late to cancel that big screen tv for the Exeter match?
  19. 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)
  20. 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
  21. 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...
  22. And an injury time equaliser for Peterborough from the penalty spot 🤣 A successful afternoon all round
