But we aren't belittling other teams like rival fans do 

I can't remember illegal payments to players or having point deductions  suspended for not paying players? 

I've always "known my place" as a Vale fan!

We did get kicked out of the league in 1967

Have you missed the many many posts on here this season and previously labelling pretty much every club promoted into L2 in the past 30 years as 'tinpot'?

Very exciting for all the away followers the second best away team in the league Vale v the best away team in the league Swindon .
We could talk about the queue tomoz what time folk be going and that but then it dazfreds going at 04.00 a.m then folk might be a 3 a.m etc etc so no disclosing what time me and nephew going .
Hamil end for home game think that be sold out first hopefully by 4500 mad singers who love Vale that much they will not shut up all game I'm going in there I'm usually backing them from the railway stand .
Speaking of that are those in there moving to the other end the bycars end of Railway to get behind the Vale as we know they like to be singing at the away following be interesting come home matchday see what occurs just hope both games are sell outs that's the least both club deserve as 78 and 77 points would in seasons gone by being enough go up .
Cannot wait now lets do ourselves justice

Alledgedly Mckirdy calling us pigs .
What a crazy thing for a footballer call oppositions players fans and club that .
Hope karma delivers him a nasty lesson in when to speak and when to keep stump and say nothing .
I cannot remember much abuse laid towards him he after all got paid a years salary for doing the grand sum of nothing .
Let's silence him for good
Some of our support wanted him do well he must ask himself this did he want do well because the proofs in the stats .
Another reason win but lets not turn this into Vale v Mckirdy he is just one of there players lets when we get a corner get Mckirdy back in the Swindon box as surely our defenders should tower above him and head a goal (s)for sure .
Come on Vale

We were kicked out of the league for illegal payments to players. Matthews the culprit.

I see. He didn't do much for Vale did he? 

Most famous for playing for Blackpool in the FA Cup Final...

I really like McKirdy.

Excellent footballer (his record this year is a joke), doesn't take himself very seriously, adds a bit of needle to every game he plays in. He livens up the barren and bleak league we play in. 

He may say cheeky things on Instagram and shush Vale fans when he scores, but I've never understood why people lose their heads so much. If it's one of our players, it's all 'yeah! what a great windup! rent-free!', but as soon as a player so much as glances at the Railway after scoring it's bedlam. 

It didn't work for McKirdy with us but by all accounts he's fairly complimentary of the Vale; believe he was pictured with Rudge at the EFL awards. In hindsight I'd have loved to keep him but Clarke is much more of a 'system > individuals' style who seems to favour workrate and discipline over mavericks (McKirdy, Monty, and Manny all left within months of his arrival).

Honestly wish there were more footballers like him. Far more entertaining than lads who refuse to celebrate because they played 4 games for a club on loan 6 years ago, and just tweet 'great win, fans were class' every week.

I'd argue the one thing you don't want to do when you play him is boo him/give him stick. He loves it; thrives off it. It's like a stimulant for him. For all the silly boos he got in the home game, he wound Lucas up into effectively ending his EFL career and then got three assists. Best approach would be to ignore him but football fans have the emotional capacity of a toddler when it comes to opposition grown men shushing them.

So let's get this right you like a bloke who ended one of our players career and got 3 assists against us .
Very strange comment I'm sure your Vale though and all the other things you right about he wants end another one of our players careers on Sunday I hope the Vale players have good sense not to get themselves sent off just because he is a mouthy full of himself footballer
Still cannot understand how you like him though what's there to like about about a player who was paid for a year by our great owners but deserved nowt .

If the Vale Players use their Intelligence regarding winding him up mentally and physically on Sunday and that Jonathan Williams as well, we might end up playing against 9 men like at Bristol Rovers !
