Match Thread: FAC2 Cheltenham T v Port Vale

Recommended Posts

So far we’ve had two awful draws away at teams you wouldn’t have thought we could’ve won. It’s about time we had some luck now as we’ve earned it. 
  

Man Utd or Liverpool please away. And make some money for a decent transfer pot and reward the new owners and long suffering fans with a great day out.

At 61 years of age I cannot believe the buzz I've got from that today! At half time I'm thinking 2-0 Cheltenham.....work hard towards the play offs etc etc but then what a second half. I haven't seen the goals or highlights yet but what can you say about Popey? I've had my doubts this season but give him the right service and he'll score against anybody in this league. I just hope now Monday isn't a let down and for once we get a money spinner, home or away and a TV game. Carol and Kevin and the whole squad including JA deserve a day in the sun for what they have done for us so far........SVA!

Oh and thanks to Blackburn for making it a near perfect weekend....now, Come on Eastleigh!

Bone idle Barnett playing for Eastleigh.

First half Amoo and Browne never went past their full backs but just kept playing the ball square or backwards. Second half they ran at their full backs and provided great crosses for Popey’s first two goals. Magic stuff.

The Pope critics are very quiet tonight. You know who you are.

Brilliant stuff from the Sneyd Green sniper. 

Delighted for everyone at the Club.

We've suffered a lot for the past three years with little light at the end of the tunnel.

But Carol and Kevin and John and Tom and the rest have put a smile back on our faces. It's been a very long time coming but that only makes it all the sweeter.

I think I'll have another one.....

Well worth the effort and journey then Eddie!

Where is the first place we’ll be able to see the goals? I lose track these days! 

I'm unsure. It might be the BBC football site.

Pope utterly unconvincing. Mouthing off, panting around looking fat and unfit. Like the footballing equivalent of Elvis’ last days.
Monty is getting murdered. However they are playing a lot down that side and he is getting overwhelmed. 
We can still win this but serious tactical changes needed. 
 

DOH !!!!

Not really! Absolutely delighted to be proven wrong. It was an awful first half effort as anyone who witnessed it would agree. 
 

However the 2nd half was truly outstanding.

Well done to the lads and all who made the journey to Cheltenham. I understand TP wanting the neighbours, as a young lad he’d have attended the games and dreamt of scoring the winning goal against them.

Personally I’d like a big team to offer us financial stability with a chance also of rebuilding for next season, which ever league we’re in.I also think there are big teams that wouldn’t want to get the mighty whites at VP. I don’t want the neighbours who will be a league one outfit next season, let someone else out then to the sword. We’ve nothing to prove to our neighbours, we don’t worry about them, but I know their fans worry about us. Looks like the honeymoon period is over for the manager of that small team in Blurton outfit.

I’m very glad too! Fair play Popey. He was dire in the first half. Seems every time I slag him off mid match, he scores! 

Then why open your stupid gob, cant wait run players down you tosser

No. The first half was a dreadful effort and fair comment. Who could have predicted such a response at half time? 

I think Reuben Reid getting injured and going off helped

I hope that the doubting Thomas' on here now realise that Popey is our best striker and if he still has two legs and his head he should always be in the team. If he is supplied with decent service Popey will deliver.

When he was getting stick, I put  the poll here up, is Pope a legend? 97% yes. His response, "<ovf censored> off, don't care what you think". And this was supporting the bloke. There is banter and there is being an obnoxious a-hole. Pope has crossed the line. And I'm his #2 fan (after Old Sage).

 We all say things in the heat of battle that we regret and I'm sure Tom is no exception but all genuine Valiants love the man who is amongst the greatest servants that has wore a Vale shirt. Go on Tom keep banging em in kiddo.

The FA website is probably a good place to look. Already, their website headline is Pope Sends Vale Through
