Townsend 6 Nothing to do all game.

Sheppard 7 Decent game
Josh 7 Cool but wish he would push on more.
Haynes 6 Not the player of 12 months ago though.
Twine 7 Will be gone January

Janneh 7 For the goal but little else
Labs 7 Thought okay today.

Got to get some fire power up front.
No idea where from though.


Oh, you watched today for a change?

Not sure I've seen many 'friendlies' with that much aggression.


Yes I did albeit none of your business.
Great to see the lads albeit a poor game apart from the "aggression" it was as I said like a pre season friendly with very little impact throughout.
Doubt if we would score again in another 90 minutes.
Tranmere certainly wouldn't.
Anyway its not a case of watching for a change.
'm 71 not into technology but I had a bash today and it worked so will be watching from now on.
Stick to moderating rather than sarcasm please.


Since the MoM thread arguments last season you have acted like a spoilt child. You should be more mature and not get 'rather annoyed' at other people's opinions.

You also moan at Jim's charity posts and then do one yourself - hypocrite!

Abrahams had a good game and how you can only give Townsend a 6 wasn't his fault :roll:


Nothing wrong with a 6 that's average.
What are you on about "a 6 wasn;t his fault" roll.
The fella never had anything to do all afternoon.
If you like I can give him a 10 as he did literally nothing wrong and had without doubt a perfect game.
You do make me laugh.
Tristan ran and ran.
New nickname Forrest Gump. :wink:


If you listen OB comments today Abrahams was causing Tranmere defence problems all match

Another 100% effort

And top scorer so far so must be doing something right :roll:


Thought the big fella had him tucked up all afternoon.
All tap ins which should always be put away.
Just my opinion.
Need better up front to make a challenge this season.

FFS when have I moaned at Jim's charity work.
Please show me where.
If that's true will be 100% happy to apologise.
Please get that chip off your shoulder.
The fella did a brilliant job for his walk.
I have been knackered myself and had more serious problems on my plate otherwise I would still be bashing away at my own charity.
Hopefully I can still get a longer run in before end of month.
Last years MOM was a total joke assisted by yourself.
Well out of it now.

A dour win,which is the most important thing but,we sat back too much and let them play when they went down to ten.I wish we could be more positive and kill them off.They didn’t have a shot on target but,we gave them silly free kicks which could have been costly.

Whilst we we solid enough at the back we did give away some silly free kicks outside the box in the last 20-15mins.
Luckily enough Tranmere weren't up to it to score otherwise we really would be moaning.
We seam to be creating more chances this season but still can't finish off a side.
Never mind, lets all be positive with another win and 3 points, that's the main thing.
Keep up the good start to the season lads.

I think we have missed Taylor for his ability to bring players into play and hold the ball as a target,the layoff which created the second goal at Bolton was a fine example.Neither Abrahams or Janneh can do that,in fact they both try to avoid heading the ball,this will be a problem for us if they play together.Proctor isn’t a goal scorer it seems but,as he has played a couple of hundred games,he must be a decent target man so may play to give the team a better shape.If we play Abrahams and Janneh together,we might have to change the style,like when Jolley and AOC played in the Conference.Neither was a old fashioned centre forward,both received the ball to feet and used their pace running the channels.

Watching the video, I think the one they cleared off the line in the second half went in. Two-nil would have been fair.

Agree with that, although disappointed we didn't push on and score more after Tranmere were down to 10 men,
I didn't see a lack of passion or zest from midfield however, more a case that Tranmere competed well and for a large part nullified us there. Whilst Janneh and Abrahams energy and workrate was commendable thought we lacked someone who could win aeriel battles and link play up top. As for Tranmere not looking like scoring. think we need to commend our defensive display, rather than saying they were poor. They did score twice at Salford last week afterall.

To be fair, I think they were down to one recognised striker. We did sit too deep late on, I thought they looked better when it was 11 v 10 than before the red card. Not impressed (again) by Otis Khan.

Looking at the league table, we are obviously doing something right. The table is good to see. I hope we stay there and challenge.

The bit that concerns me is the goal difference we have. Only once this season have we won by more than one goal (Bolton away). I’d like us to put teams to the sword when we have the advantage. Waiting for the final whistle when we are only one goal ahead isn’t healthy :grin:

I think we will get a clearer picture of how the season will pan out this time next week. Two away games to come. Cmon the County.

the lack of goals last season was a serious problem, no more than 2 in any league game I believe?
Hoof ball and Amond sadly deteriorating as a threat and not suiting Jamma.
This year the build up on the ground football is great to watch but sadly imo we have nobody up front in the squad who can take advantage of this.
Sheppards crosses are pointless albeit very good if nobody can take advantage of them, although Haynes has gone backwards in creating danger from the left side.
Only possibility is Twines long range shots but we need far more.
