Let's Be 'avin You

Let's Be 'avin You

A email sent out to all Vital Crewe members this morning...


Hello Vital Crewe member,

You are receiving this email because you are registered on, but we never see much of you so we thought we'd update you on what's going on at Vital Crewe.

Times are tough at the moment. Bottom of the league by an increasing gap... can anyone see any light at the end of the tunnel? It's tough following the Alex at the moment.

Maybe the defeat against Leyton Orient on Saturday will force the boards hand. Maybe it's just me (I doubt it) but it's clear things aren't going to turn around under Holland's guidance so the board have just got to act as soon as is possible.

At Vital Crewe we support the protests against the management team and urge everyone who feels the same to keep it up. Things have got to change at the club, and we can help force that change. However, keep protests sensible - violence and verbal abuse will only undermine the objective of the protests.

Match days are a great place to get your message across and in the mean time you can continue to air your views on the Vital Crewe message board. We already have some great members on board so why not come and join them?

Don't be fooled, the club do take a peek.

It'd be great to see you on the boards. There's been a massive wave of new members since Vital Crewe came to life under it's current guise. So, erm, let's be 'avin you!




The Vital Crewe message board has tripled in size in the last six months, so why not come back and check it out? It is probably the easiest, fastest and most reliable Crewe Alex message board around.

Feel free to get posting - you're more than welcome to join in the discussion, we don't bite! The board can only grow with your help, so don't ignore the board because no-one posts; post and the board will soon become more active!



The Prediction League has been running all season now and the race for the £25 gift vouchers for the club shop (woooo) is hotting up. 'dragon' this week made a stunning return to the top of the table, knocking off long standing Lowey-92. dragon's 0-2 Orient prediction puts him four points clear at the top.

Remember to make your predictions for future games if you're registered, and if you're not registered then why not join? If you believe we can avoid relegation then you can believe in catching dragon!
