Aup OneStep, if you 'feel like a kid at Christmas', imagine how our young Mascots must be feeling? 😎

They've got many, many years infront of them drooling over the Vale, whereas mate I'm in my twilight years and am going to act like a young kid all day tomorrow! 👲

Many Vale fans bought in the away end , think we could be looking at a 10,000 following. Conner wait. UTV



All tickets are in the home area for the use of Man City supporters only.  The Club does not have a neutral area and visiting supporters identified in the home areas will face ejection.

 

Just for information purposes, I hope it is not enforced

Sorry if this has been asked millions of times before, but does anyone know what time the busses are meant to get to the stadium at tomorrow?

Coach you mean or regular bus? Buses from town are so frequent you don't need to bother with a specific time, 216 is the main one but there are others (217 for sure), They go from Piccadilly gardens (five minutes walk from the railway station) and pretty much all use the same stop (stand D which is on Piccadilly, opposite the Wellington statue). Journey takes about 12 minutes.

On the way back, pretty much any bus heading down hill direction on the main road in front of the stadium (Ashton New Rd) goes into town.

I also read that Man City will have Stewards from the city centre to the Ethihad directing those who want to walk.

Where are people who are driving planning to park? 

 

I am parking for free at Cemetery Road tram stop just outside the parking restriction zone and then jumping on the tram- about 5 mins to ground.

 

It will cost £7 to park near the ground so it’s cheaper to do what I’m doing unless there’s a car full of you. It also means you get away quickly as they close roads next to the ground and can take ages to get away.

 

 

If you do park near the ground the Velodrome is ok.

If the weather is okay I'd walk it personally. Mostly up hill going, down hill back. Quick mention that the start of the 25 min walking route is 15-20 mins or so from the centre of town. So you need to add that on. There is nothing, apart from one chip shop, in the immediate area of the Etihad.

So any pre-match activites definitely should be in town,

I'm so envious of everyone who's going tomorrow but I'll be there in spirit on ESPN+.

Just hope the Vale team who we all know can really play turns up and the lads will give more than a good account of themselves.

Special day for everyone connected with the club and just reward for all the faith, hard work and skill put in to re-awake PVFC.

Be very interesting to watch Popey (Assuming he plays) play against whomever City play at center back.

Got to let my head rule my heart and if we can keep it under 4 I'll be very happy but in a two horse race who knows.

Echo your thoughts there Paul. I'll be watching here on Ziggo. Have a good day out all. And get behind the lads loud and proud.

Can't find any pubs here showing the game so hope I can find a stream online. Can't wait!

I think DAZN is the channel it will be on. Otherwise if you have an account with 365 and some money in it then you should probably be able to watch a stream.

SuperSport5 and ESPN+ will have English commentary, both are widely available on sports streaming websites, I am sure a link will be posted 😉

My first game since Boxing Day 2013.

It's within pub-crawling distance from home so thought why not?

I predict 4-1 with Pope getting a late consolation.

Folks I hope you all have a memorable day. I couldn’t go from when the tie was drawn but didn’t get tickets even though I’m a season ticket holder. I just hope that the ones that attend VP in a regular basis don’t get some nuisance sitting next to them asking who the players.

Have a good day and create an excellent atmosphere.
