Think it's you that doesn't get it:-

I didn't say you were an inferior club, I said you were inferior opposition.

Your 8000 fans didn't add much to the atmosphere either, an average premiership side with 2000 fans make more noise than your lot did. 

We don't like VAR either

Our owner has done more for the community in East Manchester than Band Aid did for Africa! 

I've followed City in many leagues but watching them in the premiership is by far the best experience.  

What I don’t get is why your reply sounds like sour grapes. What I don’t get is comments which sound bitter and antagonistic from someone posting under the moniker “Cityinpeace”.

If you can’t be constructive then maybe it’s best if you climb back up on your cloud above the Ivory Towers of East Manchester, and leave us inferiors to concentrate on our own thoughts about the match, and the day as a whole, on our forum......which you will probably come back and tell me is inferior to your own. 😂😂😂

10 page thread of hate and vitriol on The Bloatcake , quite comical considering they aren't bothered about us. 

Oh well we both went out in the 3rd round, I think we can hold our heads high whereas they lost to Brentford kids 

Lard vermin 

Schrödingers shlt fan. The peculiar phenomenon where shlt fans simultaneously don't think about but also incessantly, agonisingly, obsessively comment on the Vale.

Rent free.

Note the absence of cowards like Werrington who was attempting to give it the big un on here before the 4-0 dicking permanently sent him scurrying off like the two faced little rat he is.

Aside from their INCREDIBLE fickleness there is one other personal attribute unique to shlt fans in the context of football. They HATE criticism or banter. HATE it. They dish it out and dish it out, page after page after page after page of abuse about Vale and Vale fans, but single comment back and they lose their minds in incredulity. How dare someone be a meany about Stoke city. 

Scum fans for a scum club. Hated up and down the country. Vermin is right. Get them down.

As a long time blue I can only apologise for those newcomers who weren't there to experience us at our lowest ebb in 98/99. The truest blues remember those days well and we are still in disbelief that our club is flying the lofty heights we are now. Heck I still go into every game expecting to lose! I suppose that's the side effect of growing up as a city supporter in the 90s!

 

Was very impressed with the way you guys turned up. A few lower league clubs in recent years have come and spent the entire game disjointing play with fouls and time wasting. You guys came to play and put out a brilliant show of it.

 

Not a fan of the posts about the atmosphere (from your fans) was there yesterday and you were all singing throughout (though the YNWA was a bit unneeded. Never a fan of fans singing other clubs songs).

 

Best of luck to you all for the rest of the season! Brilliant to hear of Mendy getting a selfie with Pope to wind up Stones!

I do actually like City and traditionally think of their long suffering fans as having a good, grounded sense of humour, if I was a City fan I’d also be like a pig in muck about the current quality of football and level of success.. however the following would make me more than a little conflicted... https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/nov/10/manchester-city-amnesty-international-football-leaks?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

Super day out with a performance to match. When Popey scored we went mental. I was in our end but for a few seconds wished I had been in the Man City end just so as I could watch our end go ballistic. Having watched our goal on playback hadn't realised what a great move it was with a quality finish. If anyone was going to score for us we all knew who we wanted that to be. Throat still raw after singing so loud, particularly enjoyed the Feed the Pope after his goal.

Just thought it was worth praising all the staff I came into contact with, very friendly and had some great banter with them. In fairness to their quiet fans can remember when we played much lower opposition at home in the cup and experienced a similar non atmosphere whilst their fans were really up for it. 

Final word thought it was class of our fans the reception we gave our players when they came over at the end, that Vale till I die will stay with me forever. Hopefully shows Carol and Kevin what the club means to us and how glad we are they pushed the boat out and saved us.

I was sat in the goal opposite the SuperValeAway (in the City end) and right behind the goal when the cross came in and Pope scored.

Never struggled so much to keep quiet at a Pope goal (and failed to do so).

Absolute honour to sit and admire the SuperValeAway from the other end. Proud of the Vale and the fans.

So disappointed in the City fans who were just quiet, boring, and a real shame in their null vocal support. Even when City scored most of the end I was in failed to even get up and cheer.

Proud of the Vale in so many ways yesterday.

I've got nothing against your team, mate, I just thought a lot of the posts from your fans were pathetic.  City, like Vale, have spent a lot of their history as the second team in your city.  In the 90s while Fergie's lot were winning title after title you spent a lot of your time in the division below and even had the ignominy of being relegated to the third tier because of Vale's win at Huddersfield on the last day of the 97-98 season. 

Yet some of your fans, most probably the latterday glory hunters, saw fit to mock a team which nearly went out of business last summer because of a lunatic owner and who turned up in numbers to support their players. 

The amount of cash which has been poured into your club in recent years has given you the right to boast about your achievements.  I don't believe it has given your fans the right to mock our club and its supporters.  I would never do that to a non league club if we faced them in the Cup because I would respect that their supporters have backed what is most probably their local team and not mock them because they haven't got as much money as us and aren't as good.

Excellent response to another deluded ignoramus. Makes me wonder if all fans whose club has City in its' name are all the same?   Makes me feel even more prouder to support a genuine club with genuine owners, who are quickly building  a football club in the right way and is creating a unique image that the vast majority of fans absolutely love. 

How many owners would take the time to personally step on to every coach on the Synectics  car park and wish us all the best for our day then wave them all off, before leaving  for the Etihad herself?   Just lovely and wonderful. 

Man City, similar to Chelsea have been fortunate enough to be plucked from years abject mediocrity  to eye watering financial businesses, yet it seems that even when many fans who experienced those times, wilfully neglect to acknowledge the fact when choosing to belittling compare our club with theirs. It wasn't that long ago when "inferior" Port Vale were giving the Billionaires a footballing lesson. What's that you say, "we weren't Billionaires then", no you sodding well weren't,  so it would serve you well to remember that and attach a little more  humility to any further Billy Big Balls comments and just hope that these wonderfully ethical overseas lifelong supporter owners, never have a change of heart and chose to invest in an alternative venture. I hear that Man Utd are quite an attractive proposition.

We sat in the East Stand. There seemed quite a bit of Vale in that side. City fans were understandably quiet in a game they would of course be completely underwhelmed by. The older generation we talked too were sound, the younger ones showed the tell tale signs of having only followed City since the takeover - carbon copies of United fans of the 90s.

Vale fans - superb. Anyone saying anything else is talking nonsense. I wished I’d been in amongst it when the Pontiff delivered, it looked epic and the backing you gave the lads at 4-1 down and at the end was a thing of beauty.

Vale team - acquitted themselves as best they could. No lack of heart or commitment but came up against the best side they’ll ever face in terms of technical competence, movement and tactical setup. I hope some of our younger lads take something from the game about the work rate, movement and game management needed at the highest level.

City were a class above anything I’ve seen Vale face in my 30 years of following. Looks like that class extended to events after the game as well.

Our road trip finished just after midnight and the final song on the radio started “We’ve come a long long way together, through the hard times and the good”.

It felt very apt. Let’s hope this is the start of some good, good times.

Up the Vale.

Agreed,it was a great away day and I was proud to be Vale fan.    

Very impressed with the City staff,stewards and the police we met who were all very friendly and helpful.

We went to the main entrance just as the City team coach were arriving and each player was introduced on the mic as they stepped off the coach,that was a first for us.

We asked if the Vale coach had arrived and the warden smiled and said jokingly that they'd entered earlier via the trade entrance,which was apparently an underground tunnel leading to the dressing rooms.

Overall,despite the result an excellent experience.Well done Vale.

The same way a club that used average around 30,000 suddenly found 20,000 more because some Arab came on the scene.

We averaged 34000 in Division 2 in the 90's, what's your average again!

It wasn't sour grapes it was constructive and factual.

You've always been a bigger club than us. Right no problem. Now you are a mega bigger club than us. Fine, we get that too.

Doesn't stop us supporting our team and enjoying what comes our way when we can. Like Citeh fans did when they were in the doldrums.  It's all relative.
