  1. It’s a difficult one to be honest. It’s true to say the structure now is totally different but would Askey have worked in it or in fact would he have wanted to? The truth is even so the players had stopped listening to him clearly in part due to some of the squad who were just stealing a living at that point but also him not being ruthless enough with them. Think back to last summer would he have done what DC did and got rid of them all? I suspect probably not. He’s a good man though and clearly at Conference and below he is proven. I think in a year or two he could get York back up where they belong.
  2. To me as someone who goes in the Bycars the permanent move to the Hamil makes all the sense in the world. While I totally respect the views of those who have gone in there for decades the truth is as a stand with the limited facilities it is never going to attract new people into it and just looks a sad sight with the odd person dotted around it. Moving to the Hamil still gives a behind the goal view and a proper home end as well as other stuff like really developing the fanzone around there. Then when the Hamil side of Lorne Street is finished that can be the family stand and not have the issue of being right next to away fans.
  3. To me with the Malv handball no arguments it struck his arm. Where it does get a bit murky is where it did strike it as his starting position was in the box but then he jumped outside it in blocking the ball so I’m not totally sure whether it was a penalty or freekick. We probably got lucky on that one but there’s been enough times we’ve been on the bad end of it so take it and move on. Just chalk it down to bad karma for Swindon for all their arrogance during the last week.
  4. Congrats to John Askey. Am so pleased to see him doing well there and at a top club in York as well.
  5. Just got back home. That was absolutely amazing tonight. The players had a gameplan and performed to it perfectly. Frankly Swindon were rather fortunate to even make it to penalties. Tom Pett was excellent in midfield and I don’t think I actually have any more superlatives for Connor Hall. What a player. Just on the crowd I thought that atmosphere tonight was brilliant, probably the best I can remember at VP apart from some of the games with the <ovf censored>. The Hamil was really rocking but so was the Railway and the Lorne Street too. It’s a real shame a few people have had to ruin it at the end. No doubt some lifetime bans and possibly worse for them will be handed out in the coming days.
  6. Count me in on making it the permanent home end. As someone who goes in the Bycars usually I will be more than happy if they do. That atmosphere in there tonight was incredible as indeed it was among those in the Railway and Lorne Street.
  7. Be setting off a similar time from Milton Keynes. No way am I risking getting caught out on the M1. Will give the Ale and the Vale preview a listen on the way up. Not sure it’s a case of nerves at this point for me. Just want the game to start and to get stuck into them.
  8. After the way Swindles delusional fans have acted in the last week nothing will give me more pleasure than seeing them lot cry on the telly after we give them a right good hiding on Thursday evening.
  9. No reserved STs Yeah and they keep the flex 10’s greyed out as well until all 10 are used.
  10. Yeah was at that one in Bycars though I think as remember Ollie Heald scored a lob whether he meant it or not. Nothing quite like Bells crowd counter though… We also had Genoa in the Anglo Italian cup group stage as well, finished 0-0.
  11. Count me in on that too. Only been in there the once for an Anglo-Italian group game with Genoa so looking forward to it. The noise from there is great when there’s a 500 strong away following in it so all set up to be a great night.
  12. All the best to him and glad to see he’s doing well at York.
  13. Get to Wembley, we haven’t done the new one yet so tick it off regardless. The loss to WBA was tough to take but in a way it worked out alright for us as we got to experience Brighton a year later.
  14. Good on him, hopefully it will help any others to feel comfortable in doing the same if they wish.
  15. Completely agree with every single word of this. Tom Conlon is a hundred times the person Pope is in terms of leadership and professionalism as well as being a very talented player. We are extremely lucky to have him.
