Match Thread: POF Mansfield Town v Port Vale

I think its time sport, and football in particular, started thinking of the planet first.  Villa Park would have been great for this match and saved a lot of unnecessary pollution. 

It makes logical sense but I think there's commercial elements. I seem to remember that when Wembley was built there's all sorts of agreements over what matches should be played there (you can understand the logic - the FA didn't want to spend millions of a ground only for it not to be used). I'm pretty sure one was that the p/o's should be held there so there's not much to be done about it.

However, I'm glad that Vale have done their bit for the planet by arranging to only play there for the first time 15 years after it was built 😉

Yes I agree and credit must go to the other 6 remaining clubs who are still to play at the new Wembley maybe when the final club does get there they should be awarded some sort of green planet award. !

Some strange comments on the Mansfield forum but they know us better than we do..!

They reckon not one Vale player would get into the Mansfield team, pointing out that 3 of their ex players who couldn't get near their squad are starting for us (fair point).

Although we picked up 4 points against them they outplayed us in both games (I might be swayed by the first game)

Wilson is our only danger but we are a team of nobody's punching above our weight.

I had to double check I had gone on the MANSFIELD and not the MANCITY forum. !!

All a bit of fun..

Teams win matches not groups of players, it is all on the day hopefully not a woeful referee decision.

Watching the delight on the players faces at the end of the game on Thursday got me wondering how many of our squad have played at Wembley?
Connor Hall and Dan Jones have ..any more?
I was surprised myself at how happy they looked as I thought that most of them were absolutely bereft at their impending redundancies and that was why we blew the automatics?

One thing which id really hope is mentioned this week between the staff and players especially towards smith is he needs be extremely careful next Saturday with shirt pulling and off the ball antics as in the league it's absolutely fine as its likely to be missed and its a massive part of smiths game which hes very good at. But with var he needs be careful that in the box its at a minimum as they wont hesitate to give penalties for something like that

Rob, the world has moved on. Planet should come before commercial now, climate change is desperately close to catastrophic.  And its not me saying that, its scientists the world over.

Last time we were in a play off final we beat West Brom home and away in the league and finished quite a few points ahead of them. I know you are joking but its a one off game and previous results don't mean anything 😥

You're correct, I was just trying a bit of levity, it'll be tension and drama all the way next Saturday, so why not a lighter tone today? Let's hope that in this case, previous results may just be an indicator! 

Come on you Vale.

What are the odds of us winning promotion with a penalty in this final game of our season. We must surely be awarded a penalty at some point! 

Has a team ever gone an entire season without actually being awarded a penalty? We've played well over 4500 minutes this season in league games. It's an astonishing stat. 

What odds would a bet on that happening get before the season kicked off? 

UTV!

Sorry if it has been mentioned but will DC be leading us out or will he be serving a touchline ban following is red card?

No decision yet, they have a lot to review after this weeks game. Let’s hope Dazzler gets shown some compassion, but don’t hold your breath

Thanks, yes fingers crossed.  If he is banned at least we have AC, who has the best win ratio of any Vale manager ever (according to Wiki), ready to step in.

Maybe leads the team out before retiring to his seat in the Gods perhaps.
