Not picking up any sense of belief or confidence on this thread, seems distracted and downbeat...Come on you Whites!! If we can beat Exeter we can beat anyone...sod how many tickets we may not have sold...if you are there make a noise...are other teams sites not upbeat and chest-thumping?!? Make some din!

I remember the home game - there midfield dominated. I know we had 10 men but pretty sure Clarke will have a plan to combat their midfield

vale 2 1 tmrw

Be positive from the off.

We beat Exeter away without conceding last week. They'd lost 2 league games all season prior to that.

Gibbo getting fitter...stick to the same formation last week...Edmonson along with Proctor and Wilson will occupy their defence.

Garrity needs to be the legs in MF,Pett can protect the defence. Benning and Gibbo to get forward when they can,but drop back to protect the wings.

All the Vale fans are behind the team. If we don't win on Sunday,there's another game to go,but without making predictions,it's an opportunity for us to show what we can do...11/23 away wins...we beat FGR,Exeter, Bristol...and Swindle away in the league so we are more than capable

If you can keep your head when all about you   

    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

    But make allowance for their doubting too;   

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

 

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   

    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

    And treat those two impostors just the same;   

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings

    And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

 

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   

    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

    If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   

    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

 

Come on Vale!!!!!

Match prediction:

It will rain pre match to get everyone nice and wet. Plenty of Arguments with stewards about getting more turnstiles open. Sun will then appear. Inside the ground we will moan about the price of beer and pies, whilst the smokers argue with the stewards about smoking. Stewards then retreat. Pre match sun is blazing in our eyes, and we're all calling the away end a dump. Five mins before kick off the first chorus of super vale away. Quickly followed by a song about a sex offender on the opposite side..this song will be the most sung song of the day.. Game starts less then 5 mins in, someone will shout Come on Vale these are s##t (guaranteed) lots of Swindon pressure first half, last ditch defending from vale. Tackles flying in everywhere, cue the chant you dirty northern barstewards from the Swindon fans. 43 min Swindon take the lead through non other than Mr Mckirdy, cups his ears to the vale fans, a few vale fans run to the front to shout abuse and offer out the police. Half time it starts raining again. Beer and pies run out, lots of moaning about Benning and Smiths contribution, and Stone should have saved it. Couple of half chances from vale second half. Stone down injured whilst we have a team talk on the hour mark. The sun comes back out. Wilson subbed on 70 mins. Vale corner on 76 mins, Smith heads it home, vale end erupts, a few people fall over the hoardings in their excitement. The same fans slating Smith at half time start singing, He's one of our own, and comparing him to Maldini. Mckirdy does his hamstring in the 83rd minute much to the joy of the away end. Nervous finish to the game, 6 minutes added time, nobody can work out why. Full time 1-1 draw, everyone's celebrating in the away end. Starts raining again, so we are nice and moist for the car journey home. Praise and grumble is on in the car, Ben rings up overjoyed and positive, followed by Carl who is downbeat and negative. Great day had by all.

That’s saved me some petrol money then! 😇
