  1. I thought that myself. If it caves in, everyone's doomed whether it be 4000 people in there or 2000. Makes no difference.
  2. The reduced capacity is something to do with the roof. Hopefully it can be repaired and restored without it having to be completely replaced as the framework of it which you see inside the stand is unique and worth preserving.
  3. I did enjoy tuning in to listen to the pottheads blowing their fuses after a loss which leaves them in a pretty gloomy situation at the beginning of a new season. They could well be joining us next season!
  4. Understandable. Do you know if the council is responsible for it or is it Vale's to look after?
  5. In David Flitcroft's interview with The Sentinel last week, he mentions training facilities. The article states: "The club is building new training and changing facilities in the far corner of the Lorne Street Stand, overlooking the training ground." Is anybody aware if any progress has been made on this or if there is a time scale? I'm assuming that it certainly won't be ready for pre-season. One thing I have noticed however is that some groundwork was being done on the pathway behind Bycars which also leads from the Lorne Street car park to the training pitches. It has also been confirmed that a new under-pitch sprinkler system has been setup on the pitches, as a lot of people pointed out following his interview.

  6. Fantastic kit. Looks really good. Surely now this means the club will drop the price on last season’s white and gold kit? At the moment they’re still charging full price.
  7. Josh Green (who many of you may know from Twitter as he makes videos and artistic images about Vale on a regular basis) has put together a video consisting of highlights from many of our games this season with a special touch at the end too for our gaffer, Darrell Clarke, and his family. He has uploaded it to YouTube for people who want to relive what has been an unbelievable season. Link below:
  8. Don’t worry mate, more will be made available soon they’re releasing them in batches. It’s frustrating but eventually anyone who wants a ticket will get one
  9. Club coaches still available I believe if you fancy
  10. This is turning out to be a bloody expensive trip... £80 for 3 tickets alone. Haven't even sorted transport yet. Lad who's 17 would he able to get away with an under 16 ticket ticket? Do they have any checks in place? Trying to do this as cheap as possible.
  11. Why is the corner left of the lower tier 'unavailable'? Surely that hasn't sold out already?
  12. Not trying to excuse violence but Harry McKirdy winds up opposition fans on a weekly basis. He made a post on Instagram before the first leg referring to Vale as 'pigs' and then proceeded to celebrate right in front of our supporters. This is one of many cases this season and it does spark a reaction from people. I'm not saying it's right. Every club has a bad bunch and Swindon Town is no exception. They ripped up seats in the Bycars and threw flares and bottles onto the pitch at the end but I know that the majority of the supporters in the away end just wanted to cheer on their team and enjoy a play-off semi final second leg. The actions of a few thugs and so called 'fans' will have unfortunately damaged our club's reputation last night. Real Vale fans are affected as a result. Multiple flares were set of after Wilson's goal in the Railway last night and one was thrown and landed in the middle row. One older gentlemen nearly had an asthma attack before it was eventually removed by fellow supporters. It was a minority of people who decided to try and attack Swindon players and supporters. It has happened far too often in English football recently and not just this week. The Euro final last year springs to mind. There was nearly 10,000 Vale fans and the majority behaved and just wanted to celebrate reaching the new Wembley for the first time in our history. It was a fantastic occasion and the best night we've had at Vale Park in well over a decade. UTV
  13. Obviously it would be incredibly painful to lose the final at Wembley but it's out of our control. The boys have just got to play their stuff, hopefully beat Swindon on Thursday night then onto the final at Wembley. Having said that, regardless of the result, it would be fantastic for Vale to get to the new Wembley with it being our first appearance there should we make it.
  14. 8000 home tickets sold so far with 3000 of them being in the Hamil Road End. Bring it on. UTV
  15. Is this a wind up post? We sold 1700 in one day despite there being no online sales or telephone sales (all to ST holders) for a game that’s on Sky with a 5 hour round trip on a Sunday when many will have work the next day. We will probably sell our entire allocation now that it’s on general sale. UTV
  16. How many tickets left for the away game? Anybody got an idea?
  17. For people trying to get tickets for the home game on the ticket website: It is really slow but stick with it. Don’t refresh the page. Eventually when it loads you can press on the Swindon home match option, a timer will show up showing your place in the queue. From there you can buy your tickets.
  18. Let's take a moment to appreciate how fantastic Ryan Edmondson was today. Ran his socks off and gave absolutely everything. He hasn't scored many this season but his work rate today was just phenomenal and I hope he continues with that momentum into the play offs.
  19. People discuss moving to a new ground, but would it really be worth it in the end? It's unlikely that we'd be able to build one in Burslem and as a result, all the local businesses (that have already been struggling in recent times) would see the final nail in the coffin. Carol has said that she wants Port Vale Football Club to ensure that Burslem is put back on the map and she is doing fantastic work in the community to ensure that this is the case. Recent grounds that have been built for teams at a similar level to Vale include: - Burton Albion: a soulless stadium which isn't even an all seater with a very poor away end - Walsall: a stadium with a very poor atmosphere with one of the only pros being it's easy accessibility. Not many pubs or local shops nearby for supporters - Colchester United: another modern stadium with no character or atmosphere Would it really be worth leaving VP? Issues which many thought were to do with Vale Park itself (e.g. the huge queues to get into the ground which we saw against Rovers) were solved for the Newport game. Carol and Kevin are investing in the ground and although it will take time, we will have a stadium which we can all be proud of. We've already seen huge improvements with the 'completion' of the Lorne Street Stand (which will hopefully be in full use in the near future) and the promise of a new PA system this summer.
  20. Selfish part of me is gutted about this. No pay on the day tomorrow then. I wish the club could at least confirm the reduced capacity instead of leaving fans guessing. On the positive side, at least there'll be a big crowd to (hopefully) urge the lads on to a critical three points. UTV
  21. I'm hoping that they have saved some for tomorrow to buy on the day. Don't quote me on it though, I'd try and get hold of the ticket office some how but the club will probably mention it on Twitter soon
  22. I really hope that this is the case because otherwise many will be left disappointed!
  23. On the club website, they are no longer selling tickets for Bycars despite the fact that about 5 minutes ago there was probably about 100 odd tickets (at least) remaining. This was the same for both the Railway Stand and Paddock before tickets went off sale for those stands. It is really annoying that the club won't explain why stands aren't being filled to capacity and a lot of people will miss out on tickets because of this.
