    Martin you tell it as it is these days, proper honest journalism. I criticised you a while back you seemed to be too much in Bill Bratt’s Camp. But i think now you think as a Vale fan and you see the unrest and damage this trio of Bratt, Oliver and Lloyd are creating at this Club. Again thanks for your comments.

  2. Hi Martin. You are good journalist. What you say about the current board is 100 per cent correct. I will be with you all the way in removing the current board who are looking after their own interests – not Port Vale’s.

  3. Martin, I just came across Chris Ellis article about Stoke 1986. I worked with Chris at The Garden Festival. Do You know whether he is still in Australia or do you have any contact details? Thanks Mark Michelmore

    I love reading your articles, Martin. Really down to earth and easy reading. You are an admirable writer… not bad for a lad from Holden Lane!

    I remember you from Wesley Hall Methodist Church – my dad was Captain of the Boys Brigade – Peter Benson. Love reading your column and if you go to Holden Lane’s school reunion on Friday 14 June I will come and say hello. – Janice Sadler
