Stan Boardman in  a Vale shirt?

All very weird

That was the pre-match "celebrity" match I believe

Is that right that there's three future Vale managers on the pitch?

There's four isn't there? Aspin, Foyle, Glover and Gannon... 😉

What a quality defender Glover is. I used to love watching him and so far this has just shown what a stunning signing he was. Always in the right place and rarely misses a pass.

You forget how many good players we had at that time.

Slavin was indeed excellent. Foyle, Taylor, Van der Laan, et al - were all superb.

Stockport were a long ball team and relied hugely on Francis.

Slaven is the best player on the pitch by a country mile. 

The way he cuts inside is sublime...

Well done, Rob. That really cheered me up. Wonderful to see the Vale play such great football. He's hoping we can rise to that standard again when we're back in full flow. Hope springs eternal.

PS Really impressed with Paul Kerr, a player who never seemed to get the accolades he deserved. Excellent performance.

Thanks Rob. Much appreciated. Never seen that game. It was the year we moved abroad with a young family and couldn't afford to come back for it. Great shirt as well. Loved it.

The most impressive thing from those days under Sir John was the wonderful carpet football we played. Rudgie had an eye for a skilful player and we used to knock the ball around really well.

Very enjoyable.

Didnt remember a lot of the game first time round due to a pub crawl round Watford, then leaving my specs on the coach.

great pass by Slaven for Kerr’s goal, great last ditch tackle by Swanny first.

after watching it again, Kerr motm.

The tank commander couldn’t believe I was watching an old game that I already knew the result of.

she can’t stand football but used to come with me, my brothers and mates when we were courting, and all turned up on motor bikes, she was left holding 4 or 5 crash hats.
