If we aren’t fired up from the start with all the “talking” Swindon have done this week then we have to question what motivation they have.

Absolutely.

This will show what fight they have tonight.

Swindon think this is a done deal. 

They're prime Brazil 1970 and we're Wimbledon from the 90's.

All we do if kick people, while they are angels.

The result could be anything tonight, but I want to see a performance that shows they've got a bit of heart.

Totally agree with you if we lose tonight we’ve failed after being 5points clear with 4 to play 
Should it happen, use the experience so it does not happen next season. Play-offs are a risk, ask the Blades with 9 defeats but sometimes the only chance you get. But if in L2 next season top 3 please, build on the progress, and plan for the run in.

Build that motivation up higher with a Hamil Roar equal to the roar that beat Spurs.

Talk is cheap, I don’t a good impression of their manager at all but our management team are a level above theirs but it’s a one off match, we should do our talking on the pitch

Swindle cheats,come on vale do these cheats hate them.

 

Find myself getting more angry about this lot.

What is it with them ?  Completely disrespectful towards us.

I can never remember any Vale player or manager being as disparaging about an opponent before a game as these are. 

Conroy a stunner, the guy who got play stopped with his fake injury only for us to score a minute later. Basically a CHEAT .

I don't consider us to be a long ball side, but we do need that cutting pass tonight. We have to manage the emotional side in three ways: the noise and expectation of the crowd, the panic of needing a goal, the rough side of the game.

This is going to be a really bad tempered game, mark my words now.

Realistically, is Williams better than Pett? I don't think they have better passers than us necessarily and certainly not when we have a full strength side.

Good Lord, the arrogance and lack of humility going on there. 

Well, there's the article for the Vale coaching staff to pin up  on the wall of the dressing room...

Looking back at the first leg, considering they were at home they weren't anything special or particularly better than us. Our only real failing was a lack of creativity. We were certainly more than up for the game. There is only one goal to make up and we have 90 minutes to do it, with a vociferous home crowd behind us. Mckirdy was and is the only difference between the sides. Which is all the more galling since we let him go. Which at the time I thought was the right decision. I don't think anyone could have predicted how he would have performed this season in a cobbled together side. Oh for an Andy Porter or Tony Lacey in the side to dissuade him from playing well.

Just wondering how everybody's holding up ahead of the game?

Due to my location (it normally takes about two and a half hours anyhow) and concerns about motorway rush hour delays my journey to Burslem is starting pretty early at around 1.30pm this afternoon. Can't wait to get in the car and begin.

Anybody else travelling from outside the area to the game?

Swindon are quite a young side bar Williams and the manager isnt very experienced so showing a bit of inexperience being so cocky, if we do them tonight they will look stupid and I imagine DC will use the comments to fire us up so its a dangerous game...

That said for all their incredible footballers the league table doesn't lie and we are a better side than them over 46 games... and we had and still have some of our best players out for much of the season!
