Us  Vale fans will get us through, especially with us having the Hamil end. Atmosphere will be through the roof. Got us through Vs Southampton anyway:razz:

Didn't get us through vs Newport, or Bristol

Did we have the Hamil end?

So moving one end to another is going to make a difference to a team that's bottled 5 out of there last 6 games?

5 out of 6?  You conner count youth.

5 out of 6? 

6 games ago we beat Hartlepool. 

since then we have played two teams that have gone up automatically, the highest scoring team in the league away and a team we never beat who wanted to beat us for their cup final and for taking their gaffer off them. To say we bottled it is not fair.

Magpie being seeing one all day however nice journey there got there in 2 hrs .
Game itself well I thought first half doing OK till sloppy corner giveaway then just after Stone made a good save and was glad when half time break come however second half we have in my opinion played very well ,can only recall two efforts from Swindon one what went it and one deflected onto the bar other than that we bossed and deserved a damn sight more than one goal in my opinion .
Half time apart from getting soaked an enjoyable game of football between 2 very good sides .
Bring on the second half maybe in it the curlers will go in .
I think we can do it.
Taylor Benning and Proctor were very good .
Long haired yeti for them very good .
Today you won the battle but I think Vale will win the war .
Wilson if that header goes in 2-2 .
They think they have done it I beg to differ .

6 games ago we were flying, in that time we have been in front of the cameras twice and in front of big crowds a few times. And folded.

Very emotional tonight after watching that, and I hope I'm wrong, but I've got little hope for Thursday.

I hope the Hamil actually makes a difference to the atmosphere, I disagree with most of the negativity on here, the one thing I do agree with is the atmosphere at VP. Starts off well, then decends into chuntering and groaning if we aren't winning. We need to create a 90 minute wall of noise, not just sing when we're winning.

You do realise the other team is trying to win as well don’t you?

McKirdy is 25.  He made his league debut 6 years ago. On loan at Stevenage.  Before this season he had started 36 league games and scored 10 goals in 5 years.  Villa didn't want him, Crewe didn't want him, Newport didn't want him, Carlisle didn't want him and Vale didn't want him.  The Swindon fans were singing, "he left cost you're <ovf censored>".  The reality is we kicked him out because he was <ovf censored> and Swindon only took him because they were in such a state at the start of the season that they were signing anyone with a pulse.

Perhaps someone has given him a good talking to during the close season and he has suddenly realised that he was chucking a career away.  Criticising Vale for not keeping a player who was rubbish for us and didn't want to be here is daft. 

And why wasn't he booked for that ridiculous dive just before half time??

Or his constant spitting 

He should be made to wear a bib

Swindon fans today were excellent .

Did us they did however if we get every Vale fan up for it and giving it there all then anythings possible Thurs .

Just got back. Glad to be still in the tie.

Obviously emotions run high but again to me Williams gave a superb refereeing performance closely followed by the pony tailed one.

Is it just me, or are we too nice ?

They were on at the ref in his face throughout. 

Yes I'm biased but in the first 30 minutes I barely recall us getting a single decision. 

Poor day all round, soaked, stuck for an hour after. 

 

But this is far from over they think they're up already. 

By my reckoning, unless I missed one, we didn’t get given a free kick until the 34th minute.

You do realise we were 5 points after Hartlepool, don't you? And threw it away against Walsall and Newport who had nothing going for them?

Correct.  By which time they had had 8.
