Without a striker on the pitch its very tough not saying we would of lost every game but there is the possibility it could of happened and we would of deffo have dropped more points than we usually would if we played with more players available and the difference between play offs and automatic could be a couple of months so potentially not dropping them points could be the difference 

id much prefer play the fixtures with us having more of chance of picking up the points than just gettinf them played with no strikers available just to keep up with the games played with teams around us

Some good news is that when I went up vale earlier this morning there was quite a few people buying tickets for Saturday. The bad news is that I think the striker we have signed today Edmondson may have played in the fa cup for Fleetwood this season so maybe ineligible so unless Rodney or amoo are fit to play then we may have no available strikers still.

Does anyone actually know if Wilson is still out? He was set for 6-8 weeks out but think its 8 weeks this weekend? Obviously very limited updates with no game for 4 weeks so not seen anything on his progress?

Still a steady queue when I picked up my 2 tickets an hour ago.

Wilson is meant be back in training but doubt he is ready to play yet.

He will be as rusty as the others who havent played for a month maybe, hopefully hes in a position to give us 30 minutes or an hour ahead of Swindon to build up fitness.

Assume Proctor is still a while off (although its been 5-6 weeks since Walsall)

No tin hat required. Swindon game is much bigger!

No I do not agree at all .

When you have a cup run it creates excitement it also helps your league form and more importantly it puts unexpected money into the clubs hands money which can help with budgeting for  the league above for next year for example if we manage to get promoted .

Yes Swindons important every game is but if you have just beaten Brentford and draw say Tottenham at Tottenham for example it's like hitting the jackpot for a club like ours .

Massive game this if goes ahead in a way I am a bit sick of folk dissing this game v a team who have drawn 3-3 with Liverpool reached semi final of league Cup last season and quarters this and played some smashing football along there journey yes I know it wasn't the draw most of the moaning Minnie's on Wonder of Port Vale page wanted but we at home v a worthy Prem team .

So let's all pack the park and get behind the Valiants .

Anything is possible did John Rudge teams care who the opposition was No not at all a cup runs a godsend .

This will be a great day for the Vale and whatever the result we can't loose IMO......

 

Surely a decent gate and no vital points at stake........

 

Oh, and we're as BIG as 3/1 NOT to LOOSE in 90 minutes for those of us with an interest.....😁🤔

Interesting that one of Brentford’s co-directors of football is leaving in order to take over Southampton.

I don’t know where he fits into all their recent success but I expect they’ve got structures in place and will be able to backfill his role.

Well said, Breadwinner! Rudgie would not have treated this game as a "distraction" - £84k for winning + increased gate receipts = a new player. Also, the potential of a big payout if we get through to the 4th round! Plus the confidence that beating a Prem team would give all say this is an important game for us

No doubt Carol if over Covid will have a long chat with their owner Benham and his system.

I’m not sure if the crowd will be as big as I originally thought. I’ve heard ppl saying they aren’t bothering in case it’s called off and they can’t make a midweek game or due to a back log of games, it doesn’t take place and they can’t get a refund. I’ve also heard ppl who have private boxes (which only include the 23 league games) are being charged £50 a ticket. Again they don’t know if they’ll be going as they think it’s unfair. Especially as they had season tickets last season and only got to watch in Ifollow.

Hard to call, I’ve had to buy extra for some family members (big gamers) who want to sit together, plus I’ve spoken to a fair few casual fans who’ve bought, or are about to buy, tickets for this one.
