On a positive note , the Railway Stand bogs were flooded . Nothing changes

I mentioned that to Carol, just purely in a good spirit, partic as obviously she wants new fans to be impressed if we are to increase potential fan base. She replied that she would pass onto the facilities team, and then within 30 mins she wrote back that a new drain was being installed as she typed. She must of had her Weetabix today 🤣🤣

It was on Up the Vale m8 he was filming it off his phone .

About 100 folk watching it then eventually went to 224 at the end of game ,I wouldn't usually watch it but it being a friendly thought I'd give it a watch .

You can't seriously be forming views on the team 'not being good enough' from someone filming the game off his phone in the stands? 😂

I didn't say they were not good enough I have no idea if  they are going be or not and I'm hardly going having seen none of the friendlies bar the one last night from someone in lorne Street could hardly tell who played well and who didn't as thar far away from the action .

I expect all the players be great or bare minimum be good, Vale fans expect and there efforts will be telling in how much home support turns up ,the players be the judge of that theres a decent size stadium fill it the best you can that's my message for them .

Just a quick note - Did anybody else notice the "Thanks for your support" banner go up on the scoreboard after they announced the attendance?

The eagle eyed may have spotted that there's a lovely image of Carol & Kevin one side & our old friend, John Askey on the other!

Bet DC had to double take...

You couldn't make it up, a wobbly disjointed view taken off a phone from the Lorne street near the corner flag, I hope DC ran through the footage with the players when the game was dissected.

Good news that the club will certainly be signing another striker before kick off.

........................................................Covalan................................................

.....................................Smith.............Legge...........Johnson......................

Worrall.........................Pett..............Walker..........Conlon..............Benning

.............................................Wilson..............Rodney.....................................

Guesswork at the starting eleven thinking the only two questions are over the back three and thinking Legge will start as leader at the back for the start of the season and Johnson will play....the midfield three are probably the best in the division as is the quality of service from wide with the quality of Worral and Benning at wing back and if Wilson and Rodney can click early then the season can really take off.

I thought you’d wrote off ‘old man’ Legge, and now he’s in your starting eleven! 😄  

However, I do agree it will be a close call between Martin and Legge. I think he will go with Martin to start with, however if we concede from a set-piece in the first few games, I can see Legge being drafted back in. Jones at LWB also gives us more height and the advantage of that lethal long throw.

I think the team is being build on a Cheltenham blueprint. Robust, dangerous from set-pieces/throw ins with a little bit of individual quality. 

Personally, I don’t care how we do it, let’s get out of this league! UTV.

I didn't go myself but good to hear Norman Collier is still doing the announcements in the Bycars 

I've missed that 

Me too... can’t wait for the first home game.... maybe Norman will have developed his unique technique of announcements further still during the lockdowns ‘

Assuming the 5-3-2 formation, or variation thereof, the centre of defence is the hardest to call, the rest of the team is fairly predictable.  Smith is nailed on unless not fully fit.  Tend to agree with you regards Martin, but could we even go with both Legge and Martin in the back 3, first game being away from home?  Smith /Legge / Martin would be a fairly tough back 3.

Could be pie in the sky if Dazzler decides to throw a different formation into the hat for the first game.

I didn't go, but I followed on twitter and had friends at the game who were impressed. I'm struggling to understand the negativity when we have just held our own against a recently relegated championship team, who fielded a strong team, restricting them to two set piece goals.

If we play to the same level in the league there's no telling where it could take us.
