Tranmere Full-Back Linked
Friday, 4th Jan 2013 11:50
Town, Burnley, Sheffield Wednesday and clubs in France are all reported to be interested in Tranmere left-back Zoumana Bakayogo, who is out of contract with the League One leaders in the summer.
Ivory Coast U23 international Bakayogo began his career with hometown club Paris St Germain before joining Millwall in 2006, during which time he went on loan to Brighton but without playing a game due to injuries and international commitments.
After a spell back in France with UJA Alfortville, he moved to Tranmere in September 2009 and since then has made 95 starts and 30 sub appearances, scoring three goals.
With manager Mick McCarthy hopeful that recent signing Tyrone Mings will make an impression on the first team this season – he would have played in the FA Cup tomorrow if he hadn’t been cup-tied – and Aaron Cresswell - coincidentally a former Tranmere left-back himself - established as the first choice, another left-back doesn’t appear to be amongst the Blues’ priorities at present.

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
