    I agree with that. Also we would need a new club shop before that side of the stand could be in use anyway as the current club shop occupys the concourse. Not very well planned. But the seats need to be in just to simply make it look better.

    Always used to like the calendar produced in one of the fanzines. For 5 years or so every single month had a picture of the unfinished stand against it.

    It's a metaphor for crass, narrow minded, pathetic, small town, small minded, introverted, lack of ambition. No plan; but survival from one week to the next. No interest; but their own sweet welfare and let the Vale bump along the bottom with a bunch of supporters happy to pay over the odds for failure and mediocrity (on a "good" day).

    That frikkin clock is the same. If they can't be arsd to fix it, then take it down. Sick to the back teath of looking at it. Useless clowns.

    Of course we are the laughing stock of the league. Little cash strapped Vale; "they are where they are."

    I remember that section with the shutters on the hamil end is that now empty ? If so would be the ideal place for a new shop.

    The difference is it's only taken them 10 years to repaint the bridge

    So far Vale have taken 12 or is it 13 years?

    Maybe it was because it wasn't one of their 'special' deals????
