  1. I have to agree, Artell is a bit of a prat. He did have a case that we should have had a penalty on Saturday but he could present himself better. And the Porter miss was unbelievable. But these things happen, I was expecting us to be mid table this season so it’s been a pleasant surprise all in all. Will be going to the Macclesfield game on Saturday, as the team I coach have no match. Still lots to play for.
  2. Yes, Harry was our manager in the mid 70s, and we were probably the dirtiest team in the whole football league at that time. You could see the fear in some opposition players because Harry would always pick 3 or 4 hard men every week. We were regularly up in front of the FA for our terrible disciplinary record. I don’t think we were playing Vale at this time because you were in Div 3. It’s a sad day, and I expect we will have a minute’s silence on Saturday.
  3. We seem to have perfected the art of winning late, which is most un Crewe like. There is a bit of a gap now between the top four and the rest. Two great away wins for Vale, though two red cards doesn’t help. I think autos and play offs will go down to the final week. Pleased to see Northampton lose twice as their brand of football is unpalatable to me.
  4. It has been a pleasure to watch Crewe at times this season. The core of the team - Ng, Wintle, Lowery, Pickering, Kirk, Finney, Ainley, Dale, all grew up together in the same youth team, and they are balanced with a few seasoned pros like Green, Powell, Hunt and Porter. Anene has been a useful addition too with Porter being injured. But we have been lucky with injuries and the squad isn’t big, so we will see how the final third goes. I think the play offs would be a good achievement. Maybe Port Vale will be better placed next season?
  5. Evening chaps! How do you see this season finishing? We scraped a point at Macc tonight, and my feeling is that it will be the play offs at best for us this season, can see Swindon, Exeter and maybe Plymouth taking the top three places, but the play offs are achievable for several clubs, including Vale. I’ll go for Bradford, Crewe, Cheltenham and Port Vale to make the play offs. Any thoughts?
  6. It’s difficult to see how Macc can finish the season if their ground is not safe. It will be a sad day if they go under. It sounds like your game was a good one yesterday, Cheltenham are a good side!
  7. I wouldn’t go overboard with the criticism, this is League 2, anyone can beat anyone else. Crewe can be brilliant one week, dire the next. We don’t follow lower division teams for the glory, we follow them because it is in the blood!
  8. You'd have to be crazy to take Macc on at the moment, with all the unpaid bills and wages. The players are the main losers here, plus the supporters. At least we have extra time to prepare for Eastleigh!
  9. That's looking increasingly likely.
  10. I agree, but it's not our decision, we will see what the EFL decide. Football is increasingly about the 'haves' and the 'have nots' mirroring the way society is going. The Premier League has a lot to answer for. I feel sick hearing about the money being earned at the top end of the game, only to see community clubs like Bury and Macclesfield facing liquidation. Crewe nearly went under in 1977 and I expect Port Vale have had challenging times too.
  11. The game is off. Not sure what will happen next.
  12. I think you are being a bit unfair on Crewe here, we don't want a fixture pile up, though if it doesn't get played you do wonder whether Macc will survive the season. I feel very sorry for their players, the club has been poorly run. I don't want us to be awarded three points, I want the game played, but it doesn't look like it will happen tomorrow.
  13. Congratulations on your win fellas, from what I’ve heard it was well deserved. Luckily, we have no league game for two weeks, as we have lost our way a bit. Hope you beat Franchise FC on Saturday!
  14. I won’t finish coaching the Under 14s until 1pm....
  15. I just wanted to say, if I win, I won’t be claiming my prize!
