  1. Got our tickets. Block 135 row 11! See you all there!
  2. Just booked my train tickets for Mr and Mrs Dangermouse. £141 from Newton Abbot to Paddington return. 3 hour journey. Get home hopefully by 11:30 pm after a win! Son sorting seat tickets. Can’t wait!
  3. I feel the team that handles the set plays will be the winners. We need to be aware of their movement but can hurt them with good dead ball delivery. VTID
  4. Crookes and Burgess played for Grimsby today, Whitfield and Johnson subs for Stockport, Johnson in goal for Halifax, no Manny for Chesterfield. Not checked but probably Boote for Solihull. Monty made an appearance for Livingstone, booked then subbed at 60 mins.
  5. Proctor been have an injection for last two days says DC
  6. I’m in the same boat. Bus from Bovey Tracey at 11:15 to Exeter by 12. Last bus home is 19:55 from Exeter to only part of my journey, then taxi to complete. That’s what you get living in the sticks! Just want Vale to turn up!!
  7. Just thrown the radio out through the window! Fed up of hearing about Exeter.... first trophy chance since ...... Now tuned to Radio 2. Have a great day Vale supporters in the glorious Devon sunshine. Hope the day turns out favourably!
  8. Benning! Bloody predictive text!!!! Stone in goal
  9. Can’t wait to cheer on the lads tomorrow, only my third live game this season but living in Devon, the local radio is doing my head in with what they are advertising as “ The Final Countdown”. Bus to the game, a beer before and meal after and hope to meet up with a school friend for only the second time in 50 years! He lives close to Torquay. Would like to see us go four at the back, Gibbo to start and Martin to drop out if Hall is fit. Four in midfield with Pett, Garrity, Taylor and Charley. Proctor and Wilson up top. Left back it’s a toss up, but as we have four in the middle, Bennington just gets it. Did consider Gibbo on the left and keeping Worall, but Wozza needs a break. In the seats with Mrs Dangermouse and will be right behind the lads for the 90 minutes. Interesting to see that DC will lead the side. A huge welcome back sir! Don’t want to feel as crap as I did last Monday, so going for a draw and play off’s reached. VTID
  10. Would agree Ray that we lack pace throughout the side. Would say we lack it throughout the squad. Some of our more pacy players seem to lack confidence to beat a man? Are we less brave than we should be? Are we to conservative in our play? Conlon and Walker huge misses at the moment.
  11. Well today we played like a damp squib. We didn't seem defensively organised and lacked some controlled aggression. Couldn't pass for toffee and they gave us a lesson in picking out front men and finding space. Not going to dig out any players tonight but I counted that at least six gave below their average performance for the season. You can't win games when that happens. To get where we are is pleasing as my predictions for the season were Mansfield, Northampton, Bristol Rovers, Walsall and Vale 5th. But what gnaws is where we were after the Hartlepool game and how it has panned out. At the end of the game, I had to turn off the tv and when outside to dig in the garden to relieve me of my frustrations ! My son rang me tonight and has two tickets for Exeter as his mate is so deflated and now won't go. Wifey and I will be there on Saturday, cheering on the team I love regardless that I am feeling down in the dumps tonight. Matt Taylor the Exeter manager was at today's game and he now has watched Vale live twice recently. To win at Exeter I feel we need to do something different. Formation and personnel change. VTID
  12. Passing is poor and nobody making any space. They will defend this approach all day. If fit, Need Gibbo on for Benning and Taylor for Pett. Need to gamble now. Unsure if I would make both changes now? No, just Gibbo on. UTV
  13. Sitting in front of the box. Vale top and scarf on with a beer. Son at Vale
  14. We must go up with Exeter and Brizzle! Plymouth to stay in league one and I get three easy trips to see the Vale! If we don’t win on Monday, a great season so far could spiral into frustration. Haven’t got a ticket for Exeter who are 14 miles away but hopefully VPN will be locating me in France! Best of regards to all Vale fans over the next two games! 🤩
  15. Gutted that we are slipping away from the automatic position but feel that we have punched above our weight for a long time, given all the circumstances. I had a dream of a win and a draw from the last two previous games, but it wan't to be. My personal support for the team, management and owners continue whilst we still have a chance of promotion. The timing if successful would be brilliant. If we fail, then I accept that my team went close, gave me a great deal of inspiration and no little endeavour and faith. My heart hurts tonight and now a wait....... to see if my dream has a happy ending. I'll keep the faith until the bitter end, come what may. Thanks Vale for an exciting roller coaster!
  16. These are the times when I wish I was still a season ticket holder at the Vale! I'd be at all the games cheering on my local team, the place of my birth. That said with black and white blood in the body I'll be doing all I can to support the club. Sadly this means watching on Ifollow and wearing my Vale gear in a town 12 miles from Exeter! So all Vale fans, I implore you to get behind the lads in numbers and loud vocal support in an attempt to get us over the line. So dream that it will happen to such a great club!!
  17. Magnificent win Vale! Great team performance. So happy! Been shaking for the last 15 minutes kicking and heading every ball! VTID
  18. Stone releasing the ball early and wide and we are making progress. Benning much improved from when I last watched him. Hall great as always. Martin and Smith standing firm.
  19. Cloudy Devon was brightened up at 4:55 by a super Vale win! We we're up against it today it seems with tight pitch, new manager syndrome, players out for us but............ the one thing that we have is togetherness and no little skill and ambition. Will be able to watch it on Tuesday and hoping for another good result in this epic season. Congratulations to all SVA fans and I'm sure your journey home will be a glorious and safe one!
