  1. I have no idea what Vale will do this evening, but hang on in there valeparklife. PVFC means so much to us I know. If we've lost a game and I'm driving back to Norfolk, it's generally raining, every traffic light is red and the journey takes about 3 days. When we've won the return trip is made under blue skies and sunshine, the birds are singing, every traffic light is green and I'm home in around 20 minutes. Cromer pier reopened today, if we win tonight, I'm going to cartwheel from the promenade along the pier to the lifeboat house and back wearing only my Vale scarf and Bob hat. Look out for me on the "and finally" section on the News at Ten Good luck for tonight Vale
  2. Personally I haven't got anything left in the tank to think about other football teams. All my emotions are draining into the Vale, and are currently alternating on an almost hourly basis between a hopeful place and a terrifying rock.
  3. It's little wonder that this 'thread' is proving so popular. When we remember the players that have worn the white shirt like those in your team Andy. When I see those names again, I don't know whether to smile or cry, so comfortably good were they playing at Championship level. I really hope that those days return, especially for the Vale supporter of twenty years or less. Just the players on your bench Andy would give our present First Team a game, and there's only seven of them.
  4. Ahh. Johnny James. Just hearing his name transports me back to a faraway and wonderous time. I'm that 8 year old lad again, on the Bycars with my 3 aunts all wrapped up in black and white, especially freezing night matches. Being spoilt at halftime with baked potatoes bought along by aunt Betty. Watching John James alongside his Vale team mate's in 'that' all white strip under the floodlights was magical. Smashing footballer was John, lionhearted and totally committed, always seemed to be covered in mud by the end of a game. Real hero to me, and like Clinton Boulton, one of the reasons that I fell in love with Port Vale. R.i.p Johnny
  5. I'd prefer Derek Adams for the 1st time
  6. And I've got a couple of tins ready. (Watney Party Sevens).
  7. Promotion with Ross County Promotion with Plymouth Chasing promotion with Morecambe There's a pattern emerging here My 3 names for the next Manager at Vale Park are Derek Watt Adams
  8. Goodness me, the news of John really did take my breath away. Very sad day. It's the wingers than get you out of your seat or on to your tiptoes, Vale have been blessed with some belters, Steve Fox, Jon McCarthy, Steve Guppy, Gareth Ainsworth. Johnny Jeffers was up there with the best. Thanks John for the excitement you gave to thousands of Valiants.
  9. Fantastic memories. 1972. Some therapeutic rehabilitation for Valiants when we tempted ex tormentors John Woodward and Bernie Wright over to Vale Park before they could create any more damage. Growing up in the 70s, I can't ever remember us beating Walsall. Names like Alan Buckley and Bobby Shinton still give me the fear. Vale, please help an old Valiant who still needs assistance in his recuperation, with a win on Saturday
  10. I'll take a draw at FGR all day, everyday. I say well done Vale. Love the post Breadwinner, didn't realise you were a milkman. I bet your old customers still miss you, and there'll be a good few that will sit up in bed in the early hours, wondering if they've just heard the trees a' rustling, or the hinges on the gate, or Breadwinner's gold tops a'rattling in their crate They won't forget old Breadwinner, and he drove the fastest Milkfloat in the West Midland's. Love the cheery posts mate. Keep 'em coming. UTV
  11. I'll go FGR 1 Vale 1. Would liked to have welcomed Jake back earlier on, but what with a chest infection that has knocked me bandy, I was a bit too poorly to do so. Some of the three main loves in my life are, The Vale, beer and the Missus. And there was great news about 2 of them this week. We secured the signing of an exciting young player despite interest from other Clubs. I look forward to Jake helping to drive Port Vale forward from the engine room again. Welcome home son. As far as beer is concerned, did you read that Watneys have reintroduced the Party Seven. And this time the ale has a decent 4.8% strength. They've stayed true to the 1970s model, so all you'll need to open the thing is just a screwdriver, a small hacksaw and a mop. UTV
  12. "Houston, we haven't a problem!" Completely agree. 40k if we win tomorrow night with a further quarter of a million if we lift the trophy. Surely that alone should determine our endeavours. Momentum also builds. I was just wondering, at Wembley, when the winning Captain is presented with the PizzaKebabBurger Cup will he get the obligatory "and would you like fries with that?
  13. Completely agree Mario. Of late at times we've made Mansfield look like AC Milan and Barrow like Barcelona. Today though, through the application that you mention, we at the very least made a poorish Grimsby look like a..... er, well, poorish Grimsby. There are important days ahead of course, but for tonight I'll just enjoy a Vale win
  14. Thanks Bycarsbill. For the last few weeks I've been anxiously looking at the other end of the table. Well done Vale. I'm happy and cheery. In an hour or so I'll be happy and beery.
  15. Everything crossed for a Valiants win. The perfect gift for Barry Aussie Rules. Happy birthday, and may I wish you many more of them. Up the Vale
