  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. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. 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!!!

  7. 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.
