  1. Maybe is based on capacity rather than attendance in that case…
  2. Not writing it off but does feel like we are praying Rodney and Wozza are ok for the weekend, we played well enough with them on the field to feel we could cause Newport problems. Draw would be excellent but with the character and goals from midfield we have a chance!
  3. He's kind of a bit of a Sam Foley type player and we often miss that isnt he, box to box engine with a knack of arriving at the right time. He is on track for 12-15 goals this season which when you account we all raved about Conlon getting 10 last season which included set pieces. If your playing away from home or against a footballing side at home he should be first on the team sheet, the only question is against poorer sides at home. After Walsall i loved that interview where he was about crying, showed how much he cared... hard not to get behind the lad and really showing his worth to us.
  4. Pleasingly we had the amount of points now that we did after match day 35 last season just before we went on that crazy run. The Dazzler effect!
  5. Just need to be professional, we have been first half but have to keep heads, avoid silly free kicks and try and keep pushing for a third.
  6. First XI is strong enough tonight to win the game of it plays well but we really can’t lose Worrall, Conlon, Rodney or Politic under any circumstances in the coming weeks! Happy for Stone although do seem a little harsh on Covolan.
  7. I’m sure some are pleased, some are not which sums up the draw. It’s meh. I’ve seen us beat Brentford countless times in the last couple of decades and whilst yes it’s a Premiership team it’s still Brentford, club like ours that’s had some investment and pushed on but, great model for us to follow and full credit to them. It’s still no more attractive than some Championship sides we could have got, Derby or WBA for instance. I don’t see them selling 4500 tickets to pack the away end like some Premiership sides would, and just don’t think it will entice the fans who only come out for the big games (like the extra 2-3000 at Man City). I hope I’m wrong, Carol and the club deserves a huge crowd and would be great to see Vale Park packed. We don’t have the right to draw a big plum tie your right, it’s the luck of the draw. It could of been better but if we are honest if you could pick the least enticing Premiership side out the hat… Brentford would be that. It is one that to get a big big crowd that needs marketing well ticket price wise.
  8. I don’t see why Vale fans can’t be disappointed with it, I’m disappointed it wasn’t the draw we hoped for and arguably the least attractive top flight club we could of got, purely because we were playing them every season almost up until a few seasons back. It’s arguably like drawing Swindon but less winnable in that aspect. Will I be there? Yes. Will I be buzzing if we beat a Premier League side? Yes. It is what it is, we’ve had worse ties, it is a good test and one that does pose a potential for an upset being at Vale Park and our form. If we charge £20 I don’t envisage most casual fans who don’t go unless it’s a big game coming out for it, if we are smart and do a £10-£12 it may see a big crowd which in turn gives more kiosk sales etc TV will play a part, oddly with this sort of tie TV coverage could kill the attendance a bit. If it’s an established Premier League name then you’d sell big regardless but this one if on terrestrial TV could be a hard sell. They usually never travelled overly well to Vale Park so I guess with all their new fans who’ve jumped on the Premier League bandwagon may improve that but again assume TV and KO time will dictate that.
  9. Terrible draw, worst Premier League side we could of got in terms of attraction. Low chance of progress, be 6000 there if lucky and it’s a side we were playing year in year out until recently and until the point of a bit of money were arguably no bigger than us as a club.

  13. Bolton boss Ian Evatt suggest Politic wont be recalled in January, when asked he said he has done well but "No disrespect to Port Vale if he isn't getting in their team he shouldn't be in Bolton Wanderer's side"
  14. Looking ahead to the weekend also Newport's top man Telford is likely to miss out with Covid.
  15. Strong enough squad to win this regardless of injuries, tricky tie but the last two away trips show we have nothing to fear. Need to be good enough on the night though and put the same effort in.
