Match Thread: POS2 Port Vale v Swindon Town


Recommended Posts

Totally agree,but also feel that get through or not,we threw points away weeks back and didn't show control when we needed it. That means that I won't be shattered if we fail as I don't think we were good enough to be an automatic promotion side...if we go up it would be a massive bonus. Is that a fair point of view?
 
 
 
 
 
 

Agreed that some points were thrown away, but at the same time we gained points that we didn’t expect to, so we over all have had a great season. No matter what tomorrow brings, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed supporting the Vale , for the first time in many seasons.

It would be brilliant to visit the new Wembley- for the first time

Matchday so sick of Vale not producing when more people come ,just been thinking on way home Sheffield Utd at home 0-3 great home support when relegated Bolton also fans turn out in numbers crap performance Bristol Rovers /Newport same I cannot remember the last time Vale as a club produced in front of a crowd ,not a average one you gotta produce when more than normal turn up .
Oh well I had to get that off me chest so bring on Swindon and hopefully we see a performance full of all the things we took for granted in the early 90s .
I think this group bar a few are very capable just hope the few who derail us usually step up tonight then who knows , there are a few who I'd drop ,luckily for them the manager loves them and there's no one who can replace them if there was Great but there isn't so we go with what we have got .
Lets hope we carry no passengers tonight

I'm like every other Vale fan I want Vale to score 5 in the first 5 minutes and put this tie to bed early on but it ain't gonna happen. These are a good team but beatable and the game is gonna be nervous, tight and tense and Vale are gonna have to work and scrap for every opening.

I just hope the crowd doesn't get too anxious and that anxiety spreads to the team.

All Vale can do is make chances and hopefully score a few and keep it tight at the other end.

Fingers crossed.

Oldham was an above average crowd. Yes we didn't play fantastic but we showed character having being pegged back twice. 

To be fair the Sheff Utd and Bolton you mention was in the run in of Browns famous 10 cup finals quote, we were playing teams going for promotion and were woeful.

There's definitely a perception we don't do it in front of big crowds. We do okay away at Bradford and yes scarily it's nearly a decade ago but Burton was an unbelievable performance.

Shrewsbury at home the Gary Roberts goal was another bumper night crowd. Again years ago.

We've basically been in the doldrums for years, this team have given us hope.

And for me, i've never really had an axe to grind with Swindon, mean nothing to me apart from stuffing after stuffing at their place. But the manner in which their entitled fanbase and smug management and players have acted will have me shouting my head off tonight and then if we do fall short i'll be rooting for Mansfield at Wembley.

Just think how sick Northampton are feeling this morning. Whatever happens tonight we have had a great season and have a sound basis for next season....
Great season If lose tonight ,I do not personally think so we only in play offs because we blew automatics, so if defeated tonight a lot of fans will be really naffed off .
There should be more motivation than ever tonight the players owe the crowd a fantastic performance and WIN you have strike while the irons hot this could be our only opportunity get out of this league for many years to come .
You take it now lets get behind the team but lets not pretend come 20 to 10 if there performance has not reached any level that we be delighted with the seasons work because to me that's a losers mentality .
I expect us win and book our place at Wembley with a performance which befits the fact that our home support as once again dug deep pay come watch them so the least they can do is give a performance which has folk out there seats cheering like crazy like Rudgies teams did .

I agree. You have to seize the moment NOW.

Football takes no prisoners. 

Barnsley play offs last season relegated this time. Notts County play offs about 4 years ago, non-league the year after.

I'm not for a moment suggesting that will happen but whilst i agree we have a great foundation and base for the future i want to be welcoming 4500 Derby and Sheff Wed next season not 45 Sutton and Salford. 

Can be no regrets, if we give it a real good go and go out then fair play, we can't lose with a whimper. Has to be a rip roaring performance to get the place bouncing.

Totally agree with you if we lose tonight we’ve failed after being 5points clear with 4 to play

My overriding feeling.

If we don't do it tonight, this season can only be viewed as a success or not after next season.

If it was the stepping stone to promotion, then great, this year was a season of progress where we got things right on and off the pitch.

If we fall short again, this year is a massive missed opportunity which we could come to regret as renovation costs at the ground escalate and moneybags teams flood the league. A couple of years ago we finished 8th and were convinced promotion was on the cards. Askey was gone by January. Football changes quickly and progress is never guaranteed.

As Clarke said, we're a home win from Wembley. At one point we were 5 points clear of third. These are huge opportunities, on a plate, for players to etch themselves into the club's history.

Whilst I can look back at some good memories from this year, if we do fall short, I won't be thinking how pleased I am at how we've done. It will be a record stay in the bottom tier and Crawley away, which we've had some golden opportunities to avoid.
