First and foremost, credit must go to Micky Adams, his staff and players for producing a fine run of form that has taken the Vale to the edge of the play off spots. Today`s 2-1 victory at relegation threatened Northampton Town, leaves the Valiants only three points behind Oxford United ahead of Tuesday`s derby clash with Crewe. There are much bigger battles ahead, however.

Listening to the depressing Praise and Grumble, with many seemingly still holding the misguided belief that this whole sorry mess has been the fault of those who have chosen not to attend games. As for Mike Lloyd, don’t get me started. The news of the Football League`s transfer embargo has been one embarrassment too far, following a catastrophic period in charge by messers Miller, Deakin, Lloyd and Oliver.

It is debatable whether the club will now make it through to the imminent AGM/EGM on March 13th without going into administration. Quite how things have been left to reach this point is scandalous. It actually comes as some surprise that the Football League have been paying sufficient attention to take such an action. If only they had been as eagle eyed when validating Peter Miller and Perry Deakin`s ‘investment` in the club. What further indignity do we have to suffer next?
