Yes, I really think so. That's why I typed it out.

Bond, Taff, Taylor, Shephard, Grant, Morias, Gwion, Maddison, Marriot.

Midfield needs love though tbf.
To be fair, you take Morias out of that mix. We don't have the quality in depth to replace him. Morias would have taken the chance first time that Kanu had on Saturday and at worst hit the target. Kanu dithered and missed, allowing the keeper to close him down. Therin is the difference between success and failure.

This is the best squad we've had since that fateful day at Crystal Palace.


You really think so! Short of quality all.ovet the park. Probably three of this squad would make it in the championship. The rest all non runners I'm afraid! Some serious questions need to be asked about this club. Since that fateful day at Selhurst park,we have gone backwards. Where's the ambition?
we've got a decent enough squad that should be competative at this level.

imo though...we're 4 players short of being a play off side.

Tranmere fan here...

Looking forward to our replay, although I doubt you'll underestimate us the second time around and I fully expect you to show your class!

To anybody who is planning on travelling, the main new addition since your last visit is the Fan Park beer tent in the main car park, which has decent craft and international ales and is always away fan friendly. There's a good atmosphere inside, and the money goes to the Trust rather than to a pub chain. Stick your head in instead of disappearing straight into the stadium.

Image

Parking... loads at the club for £5. The streets in the immediate vicinity are resident permit holders only, but park five minute walk away and you're fine. The streets off the Bebington end of Borough Road (i.e. South) are leafier and safe, it gets a bit more 'urban' as you travel North towards Birkenhead! We park on Chiltern Road and have never had problems or seen anyone else with problems.

If you're travelling by train, I'd advise getting off at Rock Ferry rather than Birkenhead Central and walking up. It's not the most affluent part of town, but there's rarely (if ever) trouble outside of the derby games.

The Cowsheds is your stand... a steeply raked 2,500 seater end, which I presume will be enough seats... ;)

Image

We've seen three Quarter Finals in the FA Cup this century, so it feels a bit odd to be the non-league underdog in this tie.... such is our catastrophic collapse out of the league. We'll be back eventually...

Have a safe trip!

Great stuff Pablo.

Plenty on here are unable to watch a Posh match without getting smashed, so sure some will descend.

Haha, well played.

Maybe he will, as part of the Ultra crowd.

anybody know when tickets go on sale, I know we will be able to pay on the day, but could do with another 10 points in the loyalty scheme

You save £2 by buying in advance. You can either print out the ticket, or the scanners can read the barcode off your phone screen. Under 18s are just a quid, £10 for adults, £5 for seniors.
