Monday's "live" vintage Vale match is...

Recommended Posts

I am pleased to announce that airing at 7.30pm on Monday evening will be:

The 1996 FA Cup replay against Everton

This will be the complete 90 minutes with commentary.

Note: there is no particular order to the classic games I am selecting. Some of the VHS tapes are in too poor quality so it's very much which ones copy across to digital the best which I then select. I have an idea of which ones I'd like to do next but it really depends on what condition the tapes are on. Nevertheless,  I hope that the terrific performance against Everton will be a popular one with you all. 

As I mentioned, these showings are being done for free - I hope they make the stay indoors more bearable. If you want to show your appreciation give those NHS workers in your area an extra cheer on Thursday evening or make a donation to an NHS charity - there are key workers who are doing heroic work and deserve our sincere thanks. 

More details on how to watch this game will appear on OVF and social media closer the time.

Hi Rob. Enjoyed Mondays game. Many thanks. Would really like to see away game against Huddersfield in 1998. Great memories. 

Thanks. That's a good call. I genuinely can't say yes or no as I don't know if it's in my collection. The video capture software doesn't show a preview so I have to copy the tape "blind" and then check to see what's on it and if it's all OK. So at the moment I'm restricting myself to clearly labelled tapes before taking a plunge into the ones recorded off the telly where there may be a copy of Huddersfield. That probably explains why the first two games have/will be the official PVFC videos for the Autoglass and for Everton - in both cases I had a decent idea what was being converted.

Nevertheless, copying them to digital can mean committing to 2/3 hours of copying only to find the quality's awful.

Luckily, I have a fair amount of time on my hands right now...

One thing I particularly loved about Monday was the hugely pro-Vale commentary. How many times did they mention we'd beaten Stoke to get there? Class. Impartiality nah.

It's a pity it had to be cut down due to time constraint (i.e. it took an age to upload to YouTube so I cut it down a bit) because the actual video tape had a host of interviews and clips of the previous games on it. You could have enjoyed even more of the 1st Team TV team! They seemed to be really enjoying themselves by the end of it...

Desperate to see a re-run of cup games at Enfield, Scarborough, Canvey Island, Chasetown.....if they are on blurred video tape.....so much the better.

I do actually have some brief 90 second clips of some of those games. I think 90 seconds is about all we could endure!

Some of these tapes are my own. The one I actually videoed myself in the hope it would be a fond memento in years to come was the game against WBA at Wembley. There's a dusty tape with the whole 90 mins on it. Rest assured that one will NEVER air...

Someone one put on you tube  on 9 different parts 10 mins each bit of the 4 4 canvey island game and the vale 1 canvey 2 game the other week. Think it was canvey island fc that loaded these videos.

Good news folks... the file has converted really well so the Everton game is all ready for Monday evening.

Again it's not HD standard but it's slightly better quality than the Autoglass final.

It will be on at 7.30pm on Monday
