  1. The covers are basically frost covers (not snow)But they should have still been on as the pitch will be very hard due to the frost.The hard pitch 'COULD' lead to injuries.There was plenty of warning about the weather.So plenty of time to cover the pitch.
  2. Wonder how how much this weather warning will affect travel from Hartlepool.Have the team travelled early and stopping overnight?Will the weather put off some Hartlepool fans.A lot of the bad ‘Predicted’ weather with the red warning is from that area.
  3. Read elsewhere that the wonderful Tony Boult passed away last night. Tony was a great lad.Very well respected,a devoted Vale fan who put a lot of time and effort into his beloved club and the Sproson statue that has pride of place right outside the main entrance of the club.He will be fondly remembered and sorely missed by many.RIP Tony no more suffering the pain and suffering is now over.You can and will watch Vale from your heavenly seat.
  4. They have settled for 1 channel 1 club.It's FM for Stoke every game be it home or away.Vale & Crewe are juggled about between DAB & Freeview.Not everyone has DAB o0 Freeview.So a very simple,easy & logical way would be for FM be used for an away match.That way the fans of which ever team are playing away and cant get to the game for whatever reason.Have a decent chance of listening to the game.
  5. What is our 'Director of communications officer' (Martin Tideswell) doing about the bias Radio Stoke coverage? He should be on the case.Asking them questions.asking them to justify themselves and explain why P&G is 70%+ about Stoke City.
  6. Even the ratio in which RS do the calls is a massive imbalance.They give Stoke much more air time on P&G after the match.They have done so for years.Last Saturday P&G was about 1/2 hour in before any significant mention about Vale.The show is a 1 hour show (but 1/2 an hour before Vale mentioned.That first half hour of Stoke coverage didnt even include the post match interview with their manager Tuesday night Stoke v Swansea on FM. Oxford v Crewe on DAB Vale v Carlisle on Freeview. OK I know Vale were the only home team of the 3 teams.I can see a reasoning why this match was put on Freeview.So by that logic next time all 3 play and Stoke are the only home team.Vale & Crewe are playing away.Then it stands to reason that the Stoke game will be moved to Freeview Will that happen?? I doubt it lets wait and see.Was it Bryn last season the Stoke fan that was on week after week.He himself has probably had more air time himself on Radio Stoke that all Vale the fans who managed to get a call through then be lucky enough to get the return call from Radio Stoke
  7. RS are and have been a joke for a while.P & G is the epitome of RS bias. Tonight Vale v Carlisle (freeview) Swansea v Stoke (FM) Oxford v Crewe (DAB) Amazing how RS ALWAYS manage to fit their beloved Stoke on FM. Tonight Vale are the only home team of the 3 teams.OK I can see a reason for the Vale match (home) being put to freeview.I wonder if next time all 3 teams play and the only home team of the 3 is Stoke.Will Stoke be put on freeview while Vale and Crewe are on FM/DAB? To do it that way would be fair.But let's wait and see,i doubt it will be the case.Surley IF RS were to NOT move the Stoke game to freeview that that would be evidence to show that RS are bias and not impartial as they should be. Time will tell.Let's wait and see IF they move a Stoke home game to freeview.
  8. I take it that he is NOT on your Christmas card list then?
  9. Well done Brentford 2-0 Arsenal.New stadium looks good.Won the opening game there.Great atmosphere.Only 1 game into the season but a great start. Would be nice if we could get a cup game there and even better if we win
  10. I would like to see the ref explain why they gave such a decision.Could be done in a post match interview.Yes the decision has already been made so it will not change the outcome.But it would help Managers Players Fans understand.It would also help the league to see if the ref needs to improve re read the rules. As it is the ref makes the decision and that’s it.Sometimes many are confused by it.It could then help management players fans understand the rules of the game more.It could also improve the standards
  11. If it's anything like Tesco Club card, you'll need to purchase a season ticket for the next 40 years to get a free can of own brand baked beans I was hoping for at least 1 sock or a car air freshner
  12. What’s this loyalty points.How does that work.How do you Lowe how many points you have?
  13. Wonder if the guy will be playing? 'Wow', 'Sensational', 'Scary' - Many Sunderland fans blown away as 'incredible' footage emerges (msn.com)
  14. Yea I went earlier to collect mine.Seemed to be a steady queue.
