  1. Indeed, it does look like he is destined to ply his trade elsewhere, but I'm sure he would be more than willing to play for us - if a better offer doesn't materialise!
  2. A classic what, Jean? We may differ on the answer to this question !!! I can never understand why fans, most of which are too young too have seen the aforementioned To55er play, still sing this 'song.' My least favourite song/chant by a long way, sorry.
  3. I totally agree that it is next season that should be curtailed/shortened rather than this one. Nothing is arranged fixture-wise yet and the Checkatrade, League Cup and the FA Cup should be postponed for one season. Finish this season off 'properly' before even thinking about the next one. If each division was split into two sections, perhaps the winners of each section could play off for the title? Top 2 in each section to be promoted? Bottom club in each section to go down? However, instead of 'regionalising' the sections, I would use this seasons finishing positions to decide - eg teams finishing 1st, 3rd, 5th,7th etc in one section and teams finishing 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th etc in the other. This might help to avoid any moaning about a 'harder' section. The relegated teams could occupy positions 1, 2, 3 and 4 and promoted teams would be 23 and 24., giving each club 22 games to play in Jan, Feb, Mar and April. Then return to 'normality' the following season. Anyway, just a thought - not got much else to do this afternoon as you can tell !!
  4. More than likely. Personally, I can't stand him and think he is utterly talentless. IMO of course. No doubt others will disagree, but differing opinions make for a more lively forum!
  5. One for the oldies..... Lee Jenkins ! Only played 1 game for us - Boxing Day 1980. Deservedly never appeared again ! Made 3 sub appearances for Villa, 1 app for us and 1 app for B'ham city, which he didn't complete as he broke his ankle on debut (all courtesy of Wiki, ta).
  6. ... not that this will strike a chord with many (if any!) other Vale fans, but following on from Miranda Lambert, I'm well into the Pistol Annies and they are regularly on my CD player (I'm old!)
  7. i would suggest that this season is completed as and when it is possible, and that it is next season where the number of games is reduced. I'm sure we can forget this summer's Euros, as cancellation/postponement is inevitable.
  8. ... I was under the impression that most contracts ran to the end of June, though I may be completely wrong - but am totally unsure of when loan players' contracts run to - do Taylor's/Clark's deals include the play-offs for example.... should we make them?
  9. ... I take it that we do actually qualify as a "charitable institution" then?
  10. While I agree with the sentiment of your post and the mathematics' involved, I can't see the majority of the fans chucking a fiver/tenner into the collection buckets. Wishful thinking perhaps, though I too would love to see this happen and for me to be proved completely wrong - as I usually am!!
  11. "The parachute payment clearly has a reason, viz the vast difference in tv income between the prem and the championship. If it wasn't for the parachute payment most relegated clubs would be bankrupt within 18 months." (philmpv) ...presumably if they put suitable and adequate 'pay cut' clauses (in the event of relegation) in their players' contracts, bankruptcy would be very unlikely. I can only presume that this is rare because the players they want to sign/keep would not sign if the clubs did this.
  12. ... I'm sure they can, but will they? Lady in tkt office seemed to think not.
  13. sold out by 3.45, when I got there. Lady said there would be no more coming and no pay on the day. Guaranteed Vale fans in the home sections now, but what do they expect?
  14. .... perhaps Askey is half expecting Monty to pick up an injury in the next few games... let's face it, looking at his recent history, he is due one. Let's hope it doesn't happen.
  15. Teams that end up in the play-offs, or even higher, will more than likely win at both Stevenage and Morecambe. I would be very surprised - but highly delighted - if we manage to complete this double over the two bottom clubs. It would just be so un-vale like !!
