    Match Thread - Port Vale v Stoke C U21

    Surely the strangest game since the Coronation Cup match between the two clubs, but onto the match. How many under 21 s can the Vale field? Is there a limit to the number of centre-halves. Don't know what Aspin`s thinking will be, carry on with giving the fringe players a go or take the game seriously?

    Monty and Manny both need game time.I’d play them both as long as that dirty barsteward Adam isn’t playing.

    I would play all the local born players. Gibbo, Smith Conlon, Vassell and Popey. They will know what the rivalry is all about and what it means to the fans.

    Indeed - make it the strongest team possible with some local venom and thrash the pants off them.

    If we have sold 1300 tickets then we have sold a bigger percentage of our home gate than Sjoke! Yes letís beat the deck chairs. Would love to get to the final of this, not impossible.

    So Vale play a strong team and unfortunately Oyeleke, Pope, Legge get injured and all are out for 3-4 weeks, was it worth it?

    Must admit I wrestle with the question of who to play and at the moment ask myself, is this competition important to the club, how does it rank compared to the league, is it worth the risk of key players getting injured or should Vale play a similar level team as they've played in this competition so far. At the moment I go for the "Similar level team as they've played in this competition so far" and give players like Quigley, Kanu, Worral and the like game time.

    Because it's Stoke and a derby it's likely to be a kicking match with a higher chance of injury.

    Basically it's our reserves v their youth team and won't be an attractive fixture for many fans.

    I have seen some comments from Stoke fans, what they seem forget is, if this had been 20 years ago it would have been Vale's u21s vs their first team. How would they have felt, would they have sold out at Stoke etc.
