Yeah I’m chilled, wife was like you’ve been a nightmare and worked up for weeks, why you spending all that money going down there tomorrow if your chilled about it?
Ultimately what will be will be. We almost certainly won’t go up automatically tomorrow (some fans have put bets on which would pay off their mortgage if we do!)
If we don’t make the play offs we won’t have deserved it by losing the last four and clearly weren’t ready and with everything that’s happened this season context must be taken.
I used to follow Vale home and away but since having kids the wife wanted me to cool it so a 4 hour each way road trip to watch the boys tomorrow is a nice novelty and will try and enjoy it regardless.
Still pissed with Exeter for that postponement in 2009ish when I went down on the train for it to be called off as I got to the ground! Finally get to tick it off 13 years later!
Good to see the images of Carol in Exeter and the fans already down there tonight should be a decent atmosphere.
I’ve been mentally exhausted with the stress the last few weeks of it all so after the pathetic effort Monday it just feels like meh let’s just enjoy the game.
Hopefully the experience is similar to when Bernie Slaven scored down there in 93 to take us to the then Autoglass Trophy final. Conversely it was at Exeter that was the start of Smurthwaites breakdown. Think it was that day he wanted to fire Rob Page live on Sky.
It’s been nice to actually look forward to seeing us play for the most part. Mix in with a couple of really memorable games like the Orient 3-2 regardless how the table looks tomorrow this has been a big success.
