Just leaving now after a few celebratory sherbets.

Vale all over. Complete cruise control to fingernails job.

Well done lads . Excellent. 

Ps we need a Crosby song. He's doing wonders under terrible circumstances.

What a great result. The best thing about it was how enjoyable the whole game was. End to end stuff in the first half and we really did well in the 2nd, showing real discipline to hold in the last 10 mins.

Overall if we played like today until the end of the season, we will get an Auto place. 

Good job we didn’t sack Crosby isn’t it?

The Vale fans were very noisy throughout giving incredible support to the team.  Once again, however, they demonstrated the need for safe standing!

Very true half of em standing upsetting half who were sitting but the vocal support was very noisy and how did they get that flare in the ground we had a full body search at the turnstiles

Midfielder Dieng injured too

Don’t complain until you’ve got 6+ out for half the season, is my reaction to that.

It’s easy if you want to smuggle one in, they never look under a hat or have a feel round the nether regions.

For me the difference between autos and missing out completely are Wilson and Proctor. We can cope without Gibbo, Conlon, Martin, Hussey etc. and patch something together, but without either of them we look completely different. I know the formation and personnel change came in tandem but keeping them fit is the difference. Heart in mouths every time they’re tackled, every time the team sheet is about to be announced. The other strikers are great to bring on after an hour of graft by Willo and Proc, but starting them leaves us light up front and no other options later on.

To summarise: keep the best strikers fit and grab a good seat to watch our promotion.

Or better still after a quick review on Wiki / comment from former club forums - after all they were spot on about Garrity.  We were even conned into paying a fee as well!

If / when Garrity leaves us, I'm pretty sure we will get at least our money back!! Goal-scoring midfielders are not cheap! What a signing!!

Momentum is a funny thing isn’t it? 
 

Some of the shameless 180’s from a couple of weeks ago when the panic button was not only being pressed but stamped on. 
 

i expected nothing from Crosby, not because I didn’t think he was good enough but his lack of management experience was a factor but mainly because he wasn’t brought in to manage the squad. I think he’s passing that test. 
 

When it was announced Clarke was on leave I resigned myself to the feeling that making the playoffs was pretty much over for the season. A couple of performances confirmed that. I wasn’t angry, I understood that it was a lot to ask but the last 3 performances have been our best and all for different reasons. The game management side has made a huge difference and there’s a feeling bubbling away, not just in my mind, or even other fan’s minds but the players too, that we don’t care who we play, we think we are going to win. We’ve gone from struggling to score more than one goal in a game to scoring 9 in 3. 
 

Tuesday is going to be huge. As every game arrives it becomes the biggest game of the season. 
 

I think we need to all try and bring an extra person to the game. I know finances are hard at the moment and mid week games are harder to attend but a huge game, under the lights. Exeter won’t bring many, and I think the team have done enough to deserve a bigger than usual crowd for a Tuesday. 
 

I’m resisting from getting too carried away but with key players missing and we can still put 9 points on the board over 7 days, it makes you wonder what this team can do between now and the end of the season. 
 

We are massive.

Onwards and Upwards

I hope that latest bet comes off for you - be able to buy a nice drop of bubbly!!
