  1. Ticketing in general at the Club has been a problem for years but now obviously enhanced by recent success and an influx of more people . There are plenty of seats available on match days at Vale the problem is people are fussy which stand they wish to go in because of other things outside of actually watching the game - mainly beer & food ! Away match tickets are also a problem , a big bulk of seat tickets are immediately never available to purchase ( usually the best ones) obviously held back but no explanation given but when you get there- empty seats everywhere ! I can probably hazard a guess at ‘held back’ for ‘official coach travellers’ but why should people who make their own way there not have access to these better seat tickets on a first come first served basis ? It’s annoying when you get there and half these seats are then empty . There will always be problems with tickets no matter what but it’s not getting any better at Vale and it’s quite obvious the current set up is not adequate for us to move forward. I’m surprised that this is something that has not yet become a priority to ‘overhaul’ as it must be the major source of income for the Club . Hopefully it’s at the top of the list because it’s not getting any better at the moment . Just an idea but maybe an appointment required to bring someone in who has previous experience of ticketing operations at a larger Club ? We can only hope for improvement, hopefully it’s on the agenda . UTV
  2. Exeter away £27 !!! If you want to watch your team Bycars £24 People to hung up on beer / food / facilities/ prices etc Just watch the football and support your team 👍 UTV
  3. Only on here could people brag about an injury taking longer than first thought 🤦🏻‍♂️ I’m sure the player himself plus the Club , the staff and everyone involved are just as happy 🙄!! Some say ‘we’re all Vale aren’t we’ - I’m not so sure 🤷🏻‍♂️ UTV
  4. The tone of your post appears to indicate this being fact . Just interested to know how you know this to be true if it is ? Genuine question not intended to make out I’m having a go 👍 UTV
  5. Fair reply ‘Bill’ 👍 ‘Imploding’ not directed at anyone in particular but we all know from the nature of some posts that these mindsets expect too much immediately and in such a scenario that will definitely happen. As for the first few games , pretty sure we’ll be well covered for players , it might not be to some peoples liking but even the best prepared sometimes have an unexpected poor start to the season , let’s hope it’s not us 👍 UTV
  6. Despite popular opinion that we have ‘missed out’ on all these players I don’t think that’s always the case . Plenty will have approached us wanting to come and no doubt a good many that people on here would have liked . Looking at it from a different perspective maybe a lot of those have been turned down because they were not what we required . Darrell has already alluded to this in the CS/DC/DF video - quality player lined up, bring him in for interview, decided not what we required . This is hardly ‘missing out’ . So it works both ways . Yes it’s quite obvious that not everything has gone to plan so far but I don’t think you’ll find a Club where it has . It’s quite refreshing that hopefully we haven’t or aren’t bringing people in on stupid money just out of desperation. Having said that no doubt some on here will implode if we’re not top of the league after three games ! Tough league, hoping we do well of course but keeping a measured expectation in this first year would do us all good . UTV
  7. In light of recent events perhaps they’re using zoom / video calls to avoid being spotted by someone who can’t keep their mouth shut and potentially hampering the deal ! Damned if they do damned if they don’t which currently seems to be applying to everything they do ! Its a massive job trying to keep everybody happy ,under scrutiny 24/7 . Why some feel the need to have to know every single thing I don’t know ? don’t envy them one bit! UTV
  8. I think too many react to the moment without any knowledge of the actual facts . There are obviously reasons why most players move around , usually cash, but there are also many underlying reasons we don’t know about . Taylor has gone , Gibbons has gone etc ( their choice as I see it they could have stayed ) so before making out it’s an absolute tragedy for the Club when players leave why not wait and see who we get in their place . We are building as a Club people will come and go it’s part and parcel of how it all works . Decisions will be made , not all will work out but as long as we move forward then that’s a result . Interesting to note a few Managers this week expressing their disbelief at being ‘blown out of the water’ by other Clubs paying stupid salaries to players they were interested in but got nowhere near ! Obviously you don’t get every player you go for if you’re not prepared to risk the future of your Club and I don’t blame them one bit ! UTV
  9. The very same ! What you unfortunately missed off was this was between 2012/2016 . It’s now approaching season 22/23 so unfortunately I still fail to see how he would improve us moving forward. UTV
  10. Brisley did ok for us but hardly played for Wrexham last season and they failed to go up So I’m not sure what makes people think he would improve us in League 1 ? Patience folks , pretty sure the back room won’t let us down and we’ll be pleased with who turns up . UTV
  11. I understand peoples wishes for a better experience whilst attending matches at Vale. What I can’t fathom is why people think this is an immediate simple fix. Vale Park has been left to deteriorate over many years by previous ‘owners’ and it’s a long, hard and expensive way back to put things right . The Shanahans are doing a fantastic job within their means and probably frustrating restrictions beyond their control , plus the ‘unknown’ which no doubt crops up out of the blue ! As for the potential ‘move’ to the Hamil End and all those desperate for it to happen yesterday , please take the time out to read the Sentinel article from Colin Garlick which gives some interesting insight into what is involved before such decisions can be made . People bemoan lack of ‘news’ coming out of the Club ( which I think is a good thing - there are enough ‘in the know’ unfortunately sending people into tail spin with no good reason!) but when news does come out people fail to take notice and start ranting without knowing the facts . We’re moving forward both on the pitch and off it , the Club are working extremely hard to achieve good things for us all , give them a chance . What they’ve done so far is beyond what we could expect , they know what they’re doing , let them get on with it and I’m sure we’ll all reap the benefits in time . UTV
  12. People keep mentioning the word ‘boring’ on here . For me what is ‘boring’ is the same people diving head first into some uninformed gossip and absolutely tearing it to shreds without one ounce of thought !! I’m sure if the Vale management are unfortunate to come across most of this nonsense they have a right laugh to themselves . Calm down folks, events will emerge , be patient , any decisions made will have been well thought through and be in the best interests of the Club👍 UTV
  13. It’s the same at some cricket grounds . They have ‘party stands’ , just a polite warning to anyone to avoid if you’re taking kids or prefer a less ‘boisterous’ time at a game 😉
