  1. For me it was the first game under floodlights against West Brom so my Dad told me. I dont remember the game as I was only six ! For gods sake i feel owd. 😂😂 Ps it was 1958. 😭😭😭
  2. I've always loved it when Vale played with two good wingers so for me it's Steve Guppy and John McCarthy.
  3. Like that one ! Three Daryl Clarkes Two Daryl Clarkes One Daryl Clark and some pork scratchings in a pear tree.
  4. After his first few decisions we will all be at boiling point and spouting all sorts of obscenities! ðŸĪĢðŸĪĢ
  5. How about playing one at the final whistle (only if we have won) gotta be Another one bites the dust - Queen !
  6. The game was brilliant, everything a cup tie between local rivals should be, I only say that because we stuffed them ! 😂😂 but trying to get out of the railway paddock without being hit with a house brick at end of the match was a nightmare. The S.... fans were throwing house bricks from a wall at the side of the Hamil end, I remember just putting my forearms above my head and trying to run like Seb Coe past them ! I made it out.😂😂
  7. Sorry to disagree Joe but that's not correct, we were sitting one place above the relegation zone and "this lot" put a good run together to keep us up and out of the National league. Well that's how I see it. That's just my take on it.
  8. This lot as you call them Joe managed to go on a 9 game unbeaten run and you include Gibbo in your nailed on to start who could end up being more of a crock than Monty !
  9. 60+ years for me too like howjy04, cant remember my first game much (1958) but do remember my Dad taking me away to the likes of Oldham, Bradford park Avenue and later on the kop at Liverpool in the fa cup and getting soaked to the skin at home to Sunderland when Cloughie played for them. Memories !
  10. Not really, it tells me when he's injured we need a good replacement. When Monty first played at left back I though his defending was woeful but credit to him, he has learned to defend and gives us that extra attacking option when going forward and can score the odd goal as he has shown. Love it when he goes on one of his runs !
  11. What's the problem with Monty at left back ? (when he's fit that is)
  12. Yeah, wear the black away away strip for a home game and come out to Back in black !
  13. Ffs, I had better order a coffin ! 😭😭😭
  14. It's one of those games that stays in your memory banks same as the Derby County game and for me Liverpool 1964, the day I was passed from the front of the Kop to the back over the fans heads but that's another story. Anyway back to 1990, I worked at Jcb in those days and if anyone left early the shop floor would start banging their hammers on their benches. As I left at 3.30 there was an almighty noise of hammers banging and shopfloor workers shouting wooooooow ! I was told the next day that there was a management meeting going on at the time and production manager stood up saying "what's that bloody noise and lifted his glasses and looked out of the office window then said "oh its Barny going Liverpool" 😂😂 Travelling back from Uttoxeter to Hanley I got stuck in a bit of traffic but managed a quick wash and change (Vale top on) and rushed up to get Tony Balls coach. I was one minute late but as I got on the coach Old Reg (bless his soul) gave me a right rollicking for being late and slapped me around the back of the head (softly). 😂😂 Anyway we got to Liverpool and strolled across Stanley park to Anfield, what an atmosphere from the Vale fans, brilliant ! Back in those days I was a smoker and as Vale were warming up and having a shoot in Andy Porter cracked a shot over the bar and it was coming right at me, I naturally put but both hands up to stop the ball, which I did but it knocked my fag out my hand and onto the bloke behind who was jumping about and cursing ! 😂😂 The game was great and I'll never forget that feeling when the equalizer went in right in front of us. Those are the moments that make you a lifelong fan and keep you coming back hoping for more. Lets hope we get more !
  15. I was only joking, forgot you cant joke these days. I actually thought she was one of the best refs we have had this season. ðŸĪŦ
  16. She was quite chatty with Tom Conlon, I think she only booked him to get his name and number ! 😂😂😂
  17. Totally agree, I've paid for every single game this season, not missed any and that's my way of putting money back into our club. First time for 20 odd seasons that I haven't missed a game ! ðŸĪĢ😂
  18. RIP Lee, top bloke. Will always be remembered.
  19. Just noticed that if we beat Exeter on good Friday we will only be 9 points behind them and they are one spot outside the playoffs. Hows that for a bit of positivity! 😂ðŸĪĢ😂ðŸĪĢ
  20. Surely draws in both games would be better for us ! It takes 2points out of the equation.
  21. Sky bets final predicted league table looks interesting, better order some more toilet rolls ! 😂😂
  22. Of course I am ! 😂ðŸĪĢ😂ðŸĪĢ
  23. Guthrie to get a hat trick if he plays and Crooksie might bang a thunderbolt in ! 4-1
  24. Thanks for telling me, I'll bare that in mind !
