  1. I took my eldest son to my sister’s in Congleton on Sunday, and went for a look at the site of the Loomer Road track. I also went for a drive around Burslem and Tunstall, then onto Kidsgrove before heading for Congleton I dropped them off at Crewe Station yesterday, as they are going to North Wales for a few days, then headed into Crewe. Oh dear! The place is down at heel, I walked around for a couple of hours, visited places I knew from my childhood, (they have renovated the Market Hall, which is now a food and drink outlet) then drove to Newcastle under Lyme to take some of my other son’s stuff back.
  2. There have been five fatalities this year including father and son in a sidecar accident. It feels like a really dangerous course.
  3. Yes, Geoff started his league career with the Alex, and played two seasons for us, so sad to hear he has passed away. He played 87 games for us and scored 8 goals!
  4. I see the stadium has been demolished. So no more Stoke Potters?
  5. Who knows what will happen next season. We need to make some decent signings otherwise we could struggle. I think you will hold your own in League 1. I would love to see Stoke relegated!!
  6. I used to go and watch the Crewe Kings as a young lad, but the team only lasted from 1969 to 1975, that track was incredibly fast, but it has now been demolished to make way for a retail park….where is Loomer Road?
  7. Your resident Crewe fan here, congratulations on your promotion. The game was over once Mansfield went down to 10 men. You can have our place in League 1, and we will take your place in League 2. How many fans did Vale take to the play off?
  8. America is gun crazy, and it is always innocent people who have to suffer. Just young children.
  9. It wouldn’t surprise me if they went straight through League 2, they are getting 10,000 regularly.
  10. I’m getting loads of stick from Crewe supporters for being a member of this group. I told them I have been made welcome but that is their problem!
  11. Pope was a graduate of the Alex academy, but he felt that the club didn’t value him, so he moved on. He obviously is a Vale legend but is now playing for Congleton. Is he bearing a grudge against Port Vale?
  12. That was a difficult watch. It contained totally inappropriate behaviour from BB and hopefully he will never be released from prison. It’s time for my club to say they got it wrong and make amends to those affected.
  13. Many on the Crewe fan FB group are saying that they are not going to watch it, which is a poor reflection really. They would rather watch Nottingham Forest v Sheff Utd.
  14. I’m preparing myself for some uncomfortable viewing tonight, but I feel that all Crewe fans should watch this, but some of our less well informed fans won’t watch it.
  15. Maybe I am being a bit biased but I think you can turn this around on Thursday, Swindon didn’t look all that good to me, but obviously McKirdy is dangerous, as well as being quite annoying.
  16. I watched an interview with her and her husband on YouTube and she came across really well. What is Smurthwaite doing these days?
  17. I just wanted to say I wish you well today, it might be difficult to take 3rd spot given that Bristol Rovers have Scunthorpe at home, but Vale definitely deserve a play off spot. For us, time to reflect on an awful season and start to plan for League 2. Thanks also for being kind to me with regard to the dark clouds over the club I love.
  18. Crewe’s capacity is just over 10,000 but we don’t normally fill it!
  19. It’s difficult to see Scunthorpe getting anything at Bristol Rovers, but I do think you will make the playoffs.
  20. I think Port Vale will edge it 2-1. We will be having a relegation party against Ipswich!
  21. We won today! And so did Vale, scrappy 1-0 away wins are crucial when chasing promotion. I don’t think you will blow it now. And goodbye Scunthorpe after 72 years as a league club……
  22. I feel a bit sorry for Oldham, but they have a dedicated support!
  23. I think he had reached the end of the road. But I thank him for developing our 2019-20 promotion team with players who had grown up together, but it was always going to break up. You can’t lose players like Pickering, Kirk, Ng, Wintle, Dale and expect to prosper in League 1. Will be interesting to see if they appoint from within or look to bring someone in from outside, we shall see. I think we may be passing each other. Over 8,000 on Saturday, good crowd for League 2. Stoke have been a bit crap this season!!!
  24. I think Artell has lost the plot. Recruitment this season has been awful. I went to MK Dons on Tuesday and some of them were just going through the motions. Some of the loan signings have been awful. I really think we could suffer a double relegation.
  25. Thank god we are relegated! Hopefully they can go out in the last four games and try and restore some pride. Next season will be tough, maybe the National League awaits……..
