  1. Considering the standard of opposition, the replay was probably the best Vale performance I have seen in my near on 60 years of watching Vale. That night, Guppy and Naylor were unplayable. Without exaggeration a Vale four or five goal victory would not have been unkind to Everton. And what sometimes goes unmentioned is that Everton were in fact the cup holders! Super, super performance!
  2. First of all, sincere congratulations to England for the win. But surely we have to be more proactive in the latter stages. With the way the draw had panned out its a relatively simple route to the final. But please actually try to win the game, rather hopeing not to lose in the first instance.
  3. Both goals came from getting the ball in wide positions. So why not try to do it more often?
  4. Good win, but why such a negative approach?
  5. An hour played and three efforts at goal. Southgate needs to be taken into account for his approach.
  6. He's not in the game because Southgate never tries to get the ball to him. What can he do if the ball is constantly passed sideways!
  7. Sweden must be the most boring team in history. They have one "tactic" tonight, which is to get everyman behind the ball and hope. Spain just need to up the pace a little and put Sweden more on the back foot and they will win comfortably. But Sweden, my God! At least have a go for heaven's sake!
  8. For me, it has to be Naylor's 2nd v Sunderland. If you watch the goal, check the sporting mackem behind the goal applauding his strike.
  9. OF, those days I used to have to work on Good Fridays so skipped work to go to the game. At 3-0 up I thought that the rollicking I was going to get at work was well worth it. After 90 mins, I wasn't so sure. Threatened with sack etc etc Thanks again Vale!!
  10. Going through some old stuff and came across this programme. The shivers are still running down my spine 44 years later! This is a topic for only people who were alive when Job was a lad, but how on earth did we lose the tie and ultimately our first "silverware"? Please put away any sharp implements now!
  11. I certainly have one, somewhere? Can't guarantee it's condition as it had a lot of use! Also sure it large size. But If I still have it, you're more than welcome to it! PM me about it.
  12. He must be up there with Eddie's "love" of North East refs in the George Courtenay era then 😩😩😩
  13. As I was taken to the Vale by my father from a very early age, I cannot remember going to my first game. My father died very young so I never thought to ask which game it was. However, my mother said that I first went when I was three or four, so I would have got my first Vale fix in '62 or '63 - ish! So envious of people who know, and remember, their first match!
  14. Although I echo your points, no one admitted to supporting the formation of the Premier League in 1992. But it happened (and was allowed to happen) yet years later the egotistical amongst us claim that it is the best league in the world when previously despising its conception. Anyone who thinks that football and football owners care about its supporters (I will exclude Carol from this comment) really needs to look at themselves in the mirror. Owners at any level have never cared about fans and never will. Divide and conquer, yet again, is the order of the day. And, sadly, will continue to be the case.
