  1. I thought this a while ago but Covid hit, he doesn't deserve for his last appearance in a Vale shirt to be in an empty stadium. He deserves the chance to thank the fans and say goodbye.
  2. Technically it should be for ten years straight service, but this is a rare exception. Post war record scorer, home grown player, a Vale fan, part of a promotion winning team, the list is endless. If not a testimonial then at least a ten minute cameo in a pre-season friendly. He deserves a fitting send off and a chance to say goodbye to the fans and the fans deserve to belt out 'Feed the Pope' one last time.
  3. Stockport - Rancid place Wrexham - See above Notts Co - Signed up for the Premier League inauguration season, were promptly relegated and missed out, so stuff them, they can wallow a while longer Chesterfield - Meh, not a fan Sutton - A great non league cup team. Would be sad to lose that persona like Yeovil. Torquay then, they have never posed any threat to Vale.
  4. What about those don't and couldn't give a flying fudge?
  5. You can never miss what you never had. We never had a fit Manny who we could rely on for a good run. Great deal for both parties. Such a shame as potential was there but we cannot carry another Lee, Mathews, Michael Walsh etc.
  6. Perhaps the last good full back I saw at Vale before I left Stoke. Great player. Wish he stayed with us longer. RIP.
  7. Why stop here, why not have females playing in the men's game next? I have had three female referees reffing my games in the past they were crap. One cried off when the ball hit her in the head. Had plenty of crap male refs too. Quality shines through, I hope she does well.
  8. GK Mark Grew, those two saves v Watford in the cup, outstanding. He did this regularly in the league. Darren Hughes - Scored on loan V Brighton, while on loan Brighton, now that's commitment. Alan Tankard - Best left back, just ahead of Hughes. Neil Aspin - Solid, played with a bent leg v Stoke for ten minutes before admitting he may be a bit knackered. Over ten years solid service. Dean Glover - Classy centre half, could fill in at full back or defensive midfield. Scored a few too. Robbie Earle - Anyone who scores in the high teens from midfield is a good player. Going on to play in the World Cup and Premier League for not the greatest teams but still stand shows how good he was. Ray Walker - Tottenham, say no more. Controlled the midfield for years. Ian Bogie - Another great play maker and always scored the goals in big games. Steve Guppy - Could beat anybody on the wing and put the ball on a pin. Tony Naylor - Short, nippy and really skillful. Had flair that you expect from a creative midfielder. One of shortest strikers ever but the I would say the most skillful. Gareth Ainsworth - Such an impact in such a short spell. When he sold sold I felt like buying a Stoke flag and waving it outside Bill Bells garage in absolute protest at such a bad decision. This led to our downfall to where we are now. We never recovered from his sale. Edit: Not a formation, just my best players. A similar thread was posted on here about 10-15 years ago. It feels like a pee take now that we said in jest about Steggles, Villjanen, Koordes, Gary Hamstring...all of those would walk into this squad now, even they they are in their 50's 60's.
  9. I would only keep those that could break into a squad in League 1. Worrall, Monty, Hurst maybe, Brown maybe too old and performance have started to creek a bit this season, although he set an exceptionally high standard previously.
  10. Anyone remember Spoey's Testimonial held mid season which is pretty strange? Adrian Heath scored for us in a 1-0 win, a young Jonathon Wilkes was mascot.
  11. Am I the only person who thinks that John Askey looks like a broken exhausted man on the verge of crying?🤔
