Lovely to hear that the painting of Mike Lakin (superbly done by Paine Proffit) currently being in Carol's office.

Can imagine his comments about the current shower on the pitch. Would love to crack open a cold one and deliver utter hellfire on Praise and Grumble. Proper Vale fan. 

Is that old sage??

Hope when we are back at Vale Park we all get the chance to show our appreciation of people like Mike, such a big loss to his family and Vale, it won't be the same without him.

Up in Carol's office, and will be on public display when fans are back.

Mike will be keeping an eye on any potential conmen/frauds at the club.

Thanks for that Joe, and well done Paine. Lovely tribute to Michael. Just one query....no sign of Popey in the painting!!!

He's busy tw@tting in headers from 6 yards just off-picture.

We're lucky to have a talented artist who happens to specialise in football-based art AND fervently supports The Whites.

Would love to see the club do some more official partnership work moving forward. 

Meeting was great tonight. Credit to all.

36 points now please.

I wondered what kind of supporters club meeting it would be without Mike, and guess what it, it wasn't, I might have known he get his oar in somewhere !! ...... Bless him.

Iv'e spoken to one of the family tonight and he said how touched he was that his Old Man had been mentioned.

On tonights meeting - 230 attended.

I have to say that behind my initial scepticism of David Flitcroft and Darrell Clarke, I feel the need to report that tonight has convinced me somewhat of their real desire and passion to succeed. I think it's natural that we as Vale supporters are a bit wary having witnessed the goings on of the last 20 years or more and in particular with Smurthwaite.

This club WILL be professionally run from top to bottom, I thank Carol and Kevin for the vision to try and achieve that and all you guys who have supported the club in difficult times and will continue to do so.

So many things are going on, all with a passion, all with us in mind, all with a responsiblity to achieve success for us all.

I'm sure we'll survive and if and when we do lets see what happens.

I'll be there whatever happens but tonight has reassured me that at least we have the beginnings of a structure that will surpass the dross we have witnessed now for far too long.

Talk is cheap, as I have said before but I really do wish these two fellas all the best in their mission, one that if successful will bring so much joy to our lives.

"We go again" as they say far too frequently, this time with purpose.

Fantastic effort by all at Port Vale to recognise the loss of valued and loved supporters with so much heart and compassion.

3 points Saturday....
