Penny Arcade has really taken off, obviously it was a fan who passed away who did a lot of help at the club so great for him that we’ve got where we have with it.
Was that the guy that we had the applause for around the 70th minute? His name came up on the scoreboard and we joined in on the applause which I don't know wad spontaneous or had been planned. Obviously those in the Hamill couldn't see the scoreboard so I'm not sure if they got the memo or not.

No he died during covid period (from cancer I believe) he was very well known around the club and fan base, there’s a huge image at the back of the Railway Stand of him in black and white. Had the whole squad and staff line the road for his funeral.

It says they will, recall at England v Germany they let it pass for an hour or so until deciding to break it up for covid… but was allowed in the concourse to cram in drinking!

Exactly at fuck knows what a pint :lol:

Police getting involved with our coaches now and not letting us leave early doors because they don't want too many coaches on road at same time... Fuck sake

Our sales are probably now being held back by coaches, Vale have sold out so need to source some more ideally! Think I heard you guys were having the same problem? Not sure which way our coaches would go but imagine the A50/M1 so going to be fairly busy!

Straight down the m1 mate yeah and we're having some trouble apparently. Not helped by every bus company within 30 miles being booked for Forest fans the day after too

Got my ticket in the Vale end for next week.

Any songs I should learn? Apart from DC's barmy army
Not sure you'll have time learn this, it's quite tricky to remember. Every now and then we sing...Vale, Vale, Vale, Vale

As a Rovers fan he can sing about pissing in a red and white hat!

Decent of the Wealdstone Raiders that. Not a bad alternative to spending a shitload in the pubs or parking at the stadium.

Yeah might do this, obviously I live 10 minutes from the M1 and was going Stanmore but this looks although further away a better option and money saved on parking can cover the extra mileage, allows me to travel in on the tube with Valiants rather than Stags fans!

Aye and it’d be good to help give some money to a decent community club as well. Think they even call their ground The Vale as well so that will be nice.

Vale just confirmed we are going to be in all white for the final not that I think there was ever much chance of us doing anything else.

I would have been annoyed had we not wore white for this one!

Should get our latest ticket sales update later on, a couple more blocks opened now.

Jarred Gillett is the referee, the Australian referee who was mic'd up when over there. Premier League.

Actually with the VAR I do hope DC has told Nathan Smith just to be careful with some of the stuff he tends to do in the box such as pushing off and holding opposition players. Can get away with it in a normal L2 game but probably not with the VAR.

Mansfield are just as bad for it so probably be 10-10! Just hope with a Prem referee and VAR they still play to league two rules.
