I’d be surprised if the gate was more that 30,000 to be honest, with us taking maybe 4,500. I think the figures of 52,000 and us taking 10,000 are a bit wide of the mark (and yes, I was at Villa both times but things were a bit different then). Still a decent payday mind.

And it could be worse (financially).... it could be Barnsley at home 😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😂😂😂😂🤣

The 52,000 is based off their attendance against Rotherham last year. I can’t imagine there are 22,000 city fans who would watch them against Rotherham but not against us.

Remember last time we played City in the FA cup when Clive Allen came off the bench for them and scored the winner with his first touch. That was a cracking game. Still got it on video somewhere. This will be a fantastic occasion roared on by over 7,000 valiants.,

Memo Joe B et al: Be nervous, get excited, enjoy Christmas and, if at all possible, get to the game. Whether we win, lose or draw you will have your personal memories to share in the future - especially should we win 😎

Always Port Vale.

Rotherham said their tie last year with City was worth around £800,000.

Wow!

Absolutely fantastic for Carol and Kev especially since the fat blue pig stole the last Hugill instalment of £400,000!

Amazing. 

We now have a terrific pair of owners who genuinely want the club to do well and are passionate about doing things correctly. We have a sensible manager who talks a lot of sense and was also tied with the club before taking up the position, what with his Father playing for the club and him being born I believe in Milton. And we also have a team to be proud of. They won't always perform every week and will slip up here and there, but we are no longer littered with foreign chancers and genuinely have what seems to be a close knit squad of old and young pros from these shores that are all chomping at the bit to do well, and want to work for each other. 

This tie is just the icing on the cake, and in the end it could well be the difference in January whether we finish respectively in mid-table or in and around the play-offs come the end of the season. 🥰

Robbie concert

Pope hat trick

He couldn’t have won any of those things. It is purely down to Carol and Kevin.

Smurfwaite would have dumped us into admin or at best carried on being a malicious pillock.

No playoffs, No Robbie concerts (as if Smurf would buy into any form of charity except himself) and certainly no FA Cup Third Round.

We’d just have FA with Smurf around.

Be good to see smithy gibbo and conlon against quality opposion. City play 2nd string, we park the bus, scrappy draw, back to the park and win on pens!! Simples.

That would go well like the City chant for yaya and Kolo Toure, where we all stand for Carol, and on honkers for Kevin.

I'm one of the aged brigade and recall, fortunately happy FA Cup days with Vale. This tie now gives the younger generation of our Valiant family the opportunity of memories that will last forever.

Frankly I accept we my get tonked on the day but what a fitting and tremendous thank you to Carol and Kevin in their short tenure at Vale.

Whatever cash may be made out of the tie (or replay, lol) it should give back some faith and acknowledgment to the brilliant owners that they most certainly did the correct thing, putting their heads and beliefs on the block.

We have started to build a Club that rightly should achieve promotion very soon and after so many horrid, worrying seasons it is a pleasure now being associated with Port Vale FC. Long may it continue.

As for the game itself I will absolutely enjoy the whole day, come what may and I call upon anyone who might have an ounce of Vale in their blood to get a ticket and show the nation that we are on our way back. UTV.   Forever black and white.

Just looked at the draw in full, likely TV games would be:

 

Wolves v Man Utd

Rochdale or Boston v Newcastle

Liverpool v Everton

Middlesbrough v Spurs

Gillingham v West Ham

 

Maybe Fulham v Villa and Preston v Norwich

Liverpool v Everton will be be the Sunday 4pm kick off with Wolves v Man Utd the early kick off. Just hoping it’s not on Friday or Monday night.

To boost attendances at the next two home matches give out vouchers for genuine supporters who can apply after season ticket holders have first bite.

Fylde v Sheffield United must have a good chance of being a TV game

 

Work today is odd because whatever crap I have to deal with, the words "Manchester City away" put a smile on my face.

On a personal level, a Friday TV game would be a nightmare for me coming up from Aylesbury. However, I wouldn't complain if we were a Saturday evening/Sunday game as it's all extra money in the bank.

It won't be the Friday night, nor I suspect will it be the Monday given City's commitments with their league game against Everton on the preceding Wednesday and their likely League Cup semi final on the following Tuesday/Wednesday. 

I can't see it being on the tele to be honest. Liverpool Everton & Wolves Man United are shoo ins, I suspect the Rochdale/Boston Newcastle game, the Middlesbrough Spurs game and the Arsenal Leeds game will be the other games.
