[size=11]Rob Page replaced Mickey Adams as Port Vale manager in September 2014

Port Vale boss Rob Page has praised the character of his players after several of the first-team squad paid for their own hotel rooms ahead of Saturday's 3-2 comeback win at Peterborough.
League One Vale, currently up for sale, remain in the play-off hunt despite tight financial conditions.
"Eight decided to pay for themselves and come down and prepare properly," Page, 41, told BBC Radio Stoke.
"That shows I have a fantastic group of lads and I've said that from day one."
Vale chairman Norman Smurthwaite put the club up for sale in December 2014 and saw a potential deal to sell it collapse earlier this month.
With Page already warned his playing budget could be cut by a further £800,000 next season, he is encouraged by his squad's efforts to try and make a difference by paying their own way.
"I've brought the right characters in," Page said. "They're professionals and wanted to give themselves the best chance (of doing well)."
Vale were 2-0 down at half-time against Posh, but a second-half rally brought two goals in the final three minutes, with Louis Dodds netting an 89th-minute winner.
It leaves Vale ninth in the table, three points outside the play-off places with nine games to go.
"We've given ourselves a great chance," added Page. "It's a rollercoaster of emotions and, thankfully, I'm already bald!"[/size]

Can you imagine any Premier League players doing this? Just shows how football's riches are (NOT) being shared out. Sort of reflects UK in general I guess. The 1% getting everything and the 99% getting the scraps.

Sounds as if it was done for the love of the game and the hope that a they find a buyer. Travel must be a massive cost out of any lower club's budget and I wonder how long it will be before lower leagues are scrapped and returned to the regional ones. Either that or place a levy on bigger clubs to keep these necessary teams going for the good of the game.
