All To Easy For Vale
Saturday, 18th Sep 2010 17:37 by portvale4ever
Vale kept up their 100% record away from home with a comfortable 3-0 victory at Macclesfield. Two goals from Marc Richards and a Sean Rigg strike did the damage for Vale as they moved up to 2nd in the league - level on points with Shrewsbury, with just 'goals scored' giving the Shrews top spot.
When was the last time we could get this excited about the start of the season? I remember us winning the first four league games of the 06/07 season - Leon Constantine, Akpo Sodje, Danny Whitaker, Danny Sonner, Jeff Smth, George Pilkington, Mark Goodlad, Jason Talbot ,et al - but it quickly disintergrated, this season we have far more belief, a team that wants to win, and isn't scared of facing anyone in this league. We are genuine promotion contenders. And after all the disappointment we've had to put up with over the past few seasons we deserve this.
The 2000+ travelling Fans were excellent again. We are far too big a Club to be playing the likes of Macclesfield. Next week we're at home to Accrington Stanley. We do not belong in this league!

I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
