  1. What are peoples thoughts on team selection if no one can return from injury? I'd be very tempted to keep the same starting 11 as on Thursday night, then bring Charsley on with 30 to 35 minutes to go again. His injection of intensity on Thursday night made the difference, and could again on Saturday. Gibbo in the 3 worked perfectly. Worrall had more licence to go forward with Smith playing a more central role. I'd keep the back 3, wing backs and strikers the same. The only question for me is whether Taylor stays in the starting lineup. The rest of the team picks itself.
  2. I lived off a food budget of £8 per week in our last promotion season. As a result I attended 42 games that year. You find the money if you're a proper fan, no excuses.
  3. Can someone get onto Ticketmaster on twitter? That normally works. I would but for some reason AMF is banned from that platform.
  4. Why have more blocks been released in the Mansfield end, despite the fact that we've clearly sold more tickets? This is a shambles from Ticketmaster. All 1,500 or so seats released that weren't behind a goal were pretty much sold out within 20 minutes yet nothing else available. This needs sorting sharpish. We're supposed to have 25,000 tickets. We've probably sold 12,000 and people can't get 4 or 5 seats together.
  5. They might as well have been locked out of the Bycars, the amount of time it took to get the supporters into the ground. The Hamil must still hold 4,000 based on the allocation for the Exeter streaming event. I can't imagine there are any capacity restrictions as such on the Hamil or Lorne Street due to the more sensible access and concourse arrangements. I fully agree regarding the other side of the Lorne Street. It would surely cost less to get that up to standards regarding the concourse than trying to adapt the Railway Stand to allow full capacity now. It's time we played in a completed stadium. We've been there for over 70 years for heavens sake!
  6. I wonder when this will sell out? Remember everyone, our home capacity is less than 9,000 these days (although the club refuse to clarify exactly how many fans can be housed in each stand based on the current safety certificates). Railway Stand and Lorne Street already "Sold Out". It'll be slightly embarrassing when home fans are locked out at 2.30pm with 10,000 empty seats in the stadium.
  7. Just purchased 864 tickets. PM me if you want one £50 adults, £49 concessions.
  8. How many did we take to Oldham? We're not going to take less than half to Salford when it's £15 a pop? Needs sorting out now so Carol isn't wasting Monday morning dishing out hot drinks and apologising to people.
  9. What, like G. Nev calling out Boris for being a <ovf censored>?
  10. No chance we'll take less than 1,000. I know quite a few people who couldn't get tickets last time, so intend to go as its a new ground. We all know Vale fans love a booze up, so Manchester away days are very popular. We've got loads of mid-week away matches too, so opportunities for a close away day by train are minimal. Farcical scenes.
  11. Why oh why have we only got 814 tickets for the initial allocation for Salford? We were given 1,400 last time and we could have sold double. This is one of the first truly close away fixtures in the league this season, and once again we've got a Monday release which will sell out by lunchtime with people queuing for hours on end, with people turned away because we've only got half of the capacity of the away end to sell. The club MUST go back to Salford and have them send the full allocation immediately. Not taking this action would be another failure on crowd management by those who run the club.
  12. Get it sorted. I'm getting grief from my pals for not taking a half day to get a ticket for Burton v Vale for heaven sake. Why is it taking so long to complete the transactions anyway? Is this technology progress? I remember queuing for Autoglass Trophy tickets in 1993 and we sold 24,000 of them! By modern standards you'd still be queuing now for tickets to that game!
  13. If his shot stopping was as good as Brown then he'd be playing in the Championship. Where are you vulnerable to conceding in this division? From big balls in from set-pieces and breaking the line in one-on-one situations. I'm confident that he does well in those situations. He holds onto the ball well generally from long shots. There have been a few where a stronger hand could have maybe prevented a goal. Maybe that's about strength technique around the wrists. Anyway, I'm generally happy. Brown was doing my head in with his inability to deal with corners. It put us under no end of pressure.
  14. It's clearly wrong to boo your own players (unless they're not putting a shift in). If you want to boo virtue signalling gesture politics at a sporting event you've paid money to attend then that's fine. I prefer to turn my back on pathetic knee taking. Any fight against racism is a generational thing, and making distinctions of any sort based on the colour of someones skin re-enforces differences that should not matter. As such, taking the knee is an intrinsically racist act. I choose not to applaud racism, and definitely do not object to people booing racism enacted by footballers in taking the knee. Will racists all of a sudden stop being racist as a result of knee taking? The answer is no, so what exactly is the point? "Awareness" only breeds more racists. We need to bring up our kids as colourblind, not having them ask at a young age what their footballing heros on the pitch are doing.

    I don't think he's intentionally calling people cowards. I think he's referring more to the unsustainable government policy prior to vaccine mitigation of putting society under house arrest and closing businesses down. That was cowering from the virus whether you like the term or not. Also, those who've said "cases are down because testing is down", that's simply incorrect. Testing has dropped off 5.5%. This is hardly proportionate to the reduction in "cases". In reality, the experts underestimated the effect of 25,000 schools going into what is essentially a 7 week lockdown, an environment which hosts millions of children (with no additional vaccine protection to the natural immunity some will have aquired) for 7 hours a day, 5 days a week. Around 3,000 nightclubs opening up for a few nights a week to a demographic with significant antibody protection (which grows every day) was never going to offset the benefit of schools closing. Have many peoples behaviour actually changed a great deal in the last week? Many are continuing to take more precautions than what the experts presumed, and maybe a far larger percentage of the population were already ignoring the rules, meaning the 19th July "easing" hasn't actually altered very much in most people's lives.
