    The problem is and this applies to all journalists in football, often the questions are so mundane and clichéd I just don't think Clarke has the time for it. He's clearly irritable even after a win. 

    I think it's hilarious because he shoots from the hip. Journos must hate him . 

    Totally agree, Clarke has his critics, but i love the honesty. 


    I always wonder why Phil Bowers asks the questions he does sometimes:laugh:


    I like his commentary BTY ...Was he the commentator who said biting your finger nails and clenching your buttocks?...That has always stuck with me and I'm sure it was him. Not sure who it was against though.

    Just thinking after the game how many scouts might have been there watching Gibbo and Conlon (and possibly Rodney). If we stay in the automatic places, we're odds on to get interest if not bids in the transfer window. L1 offers I'm sure we can repel with the prospect we're going up but what would the club do if we had decent offers from the Championship? A lot would depend on the player. Just hoping that we can keep this side together because my guess is, with some key additions, we'd do well in L1. I'm sure Carol and Kev have real ambitions for the club, so I just hope they'd do what it takes to repel all invaders.


    I think that with Gibbo or Conlon, if we go up Vale would be in a good position to offer what's required to keep them (Conlon was sorted don't forget before this season)...Gibbons needs to be looked after too IMO...If a Championship club comes in and its a huge opportunity , then we cant compete. Depends on the player of course. Grass isn't always greener and can definitely decline the players career. But at the end of the day money talks.

    In the league below there was Chesterfirled with over 5500, Grimsby over 6000 and Notts County over 7500 and we keep claiming to be a lot bigger than these.  

    Notts County attendance was made up of a big following from Stockport, Grimsby are on a massive high and Chesterfield now second in the league and very similar to Vale. Colchester brought 170 fans today. If Vale keep this up, we'll see a decent increase, especially against the big hitters

    Anybody hear Clarkey on RS . He really gives it to Mr Bowers .

    As soon as Bowers mentioned how poor Colchester were first half Clarke bit his head off saying that is because we need credit for it. 

    I'm not bothered about Colchester !! Brilliant Clarkey neither am I. 

    Im sure DC rolled his eyes at one point:angry::laugh:

    You can develop players for years in top academies, and they still won't learn the innate attributes that Gibbo has.

    He's an excellent player in a load of ways, but his seething aggression, work-rate, and borderline viciousness in everything he does isn't coachable. He looks perpetually fuming at everything and everyone and it reflects brilliantly in the way he plays.

    Him clattering their lad in the 2nd half, after the ball was out and the player was two yards off the pitch, was top drawer. Vintage Gibbo. Future captain.

    Gibbo is absolute class. His desire shines through. He's capable of playing left and right back, he can score the odd goal, his commitment is second to non. Top quality player and one I'm sure will unfortunately leave us one day for a decent pay-out for the club.

  6. Very disappointing result, but 1 goal deflection, 1 own goal, 2 bad decisions for the other 2 goals means im not going to go over the top. But we were terrible at he back today, no mistaking that. We are 4th in the table. These games happen unfortunately now and then.


    Ref terrible, but no excuse. As DC has said we need to be better. 3-2 up, we should have more about us not to lose that game if we're serious to get out of this awful league.
