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.

Where Are We Now? by Steve_M
Well, ultimately it is now a question of a change of manager now or at the end of the season. Mick McCarthy has dragged the cycle out to four years rather than the 18 months of his more hapless predecessors but there is clearly a need for a fresh approach at the club.
The Moore You Ignore Mick by Mullet
Day 14 in the TWTD madhouse and all is far from clear. Months of second-rate drama and second-rate football seem to end with a quiet ovation for Mick McCarthy and his men. With his captain coming out in the media to air publicly the wounds of he and his colleagues, another young player is welcomed and warned off it by Mick.
The Identity Crisis of Modern Football by wkj
Like so many others my age, my Grandad bought me up on Ipswich Town. A great club with family ties, involvement and commitment to the larger Suffolk community, and a privilege to support. In those days it seems a lot of clubs had similar connections to their fans.
A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts by monty_radio
The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.

None of the club’s successful managers over the years had massive resources available to them, but none have had to compete in leagues as inequitable as the current Championship.
