    Phoenix Club: Would You Support/Back It?

    Just some musings that I'm putting out there. I was wondering if the worst came to the worst and Sm***waite gets his way or indeed if he doesn't (I think as fans we all need a fresh challenge and a change of scenery) would you all back and support a Phoenix club. What would your ideas for ground etc be? It's an interesting idea and if done right one which could provide a new and interesting experience. It would probably be run better and supported better than the original Port Vale. I'm getting to the stage now (after decades of off field battles and systemic on field failure)where I just want to start with a new club.

    Not a cat in hells chance of a new club surviving in this area.Port Vale must not go out of the FL as it will be the end of the Vale long term .

    Wonder what we as fans would do if the worst did happen though? I can't see us letting the spirit/name just die, even if it did mean starting in the North West Counties in front of 500 fans.

    We'd need a new VLF, although obviously under a new name to avoid trademark infringement.

    Don't even go there, if the worst happens it'll be all over there'll be no coming back. We're the second club in the smallest city with two league clubs, starting again and getting back in the league would be nigh on impossible. The best we would do is emulate Bradford Park Avenue.
    We can NOT afford to drop out of the league.

    Crazy idea. The only Phoenix club that has really worked is AFC Wimbledon and that is because it is in an area where being a millionaire is normal.
