Tom Pope Analysis


Recommended Posts

Popey is an absolute Vale legend. His ability, footballing brain and all those goals, and the fact that he's got black and white blood and a Valiant heart put him right up there with the very best that have played for The Vale! 

The goals, the celebrations, the promotion, the awards, the tweets... Tom Pope will never be forgotten. 

His terrible injury that night, the circumstances of how he played on, speak volumes about how much the club means to him.

A cushy little retirement job down the road at Congleton is a nice way to end his career, playing for RD and alongside GR. I'll be making the effort to go and see him play again when I get the chance. 

A testimonial from The Vale should be given so we can all thank him properly and give him a great send-off!

Let’s just put it this way. If an out of contract Pope can only get a gig at Congleton Town, then what hope is there of offloading an in-contract Theo Robinson any time soon? 

Is he considered deadwood that we are still paying for? Isthat remark  going to improve his chances of getting another club?
