Long-time Tranmere watching colleague on Norwood
at 10:58 16 Apr 2019

"One of my favourite players in 33 years watching Tranmere. Please don't take him! Can't score one-on-ones to save his life but hard worker, good feet, smart footballer, and hero to the fans."

Him + Keane would seem a decent enough haul for the striking department, I do worry about a lack of cutting edge for next season though, even in L1.

Have never really rated him, to be quite honest, but seems to be in some decent form at the moment, a couple of assists lately and Lambert has been very positive. Has he made a step up, in regular watchers' eyes?

Don't think Lambert was threatening to walk out there, was he?
at 22:32 30 Mar 2019

Seems like he was just responding to a fairly critical line of questioning with "Well if they sack me I can't do anything about it", which is pretty uncontroversial. He won't be sacked as there is a rebuilding job to do and it would be insane to rip it up again. Think the questions suggested more discord than there actually is and, perhaps unfortunately, got a line from it.

That was good last night
at 10:06 13 Mar 2019

While we can't say things have "turned", and they certainly won't in time to keep us up, there are signs of a consistent level of performance now and more resilience about the team. If we could keep our strikers fit we'd probably have won one or two of the games we've drawn. Thought that was very good yesterday in most departments and if we'd been able to approach games like that a couple of months ago we'd be right in the scrap. But I think we're all getting a bit of a clearer idea about how Lambert wants to do things and, while the pain of going down is going to be immense, I'm fully onboard with his plan for bringing us back.

That's probably us done now but hopefully we can get a big crowd in next week - ticket promotion isn't it? - and keep the season competitive for a while longer. Six points would seem doable even if all evidence says otherwise. It is nice to see that we are improving - I think that's clear - although I do wonder how much is down to players we may well not have next year.

Judge
at 11:30 11 Feb 2019

Seen some mixed reviews of his performance yesterday and there were certainly times when he and others - Knudsen most glaringly, but also unsurprisingly - clearly weren't on the same wavelength. But I thought in general he set an example to some our guys in wanting to get on the ball, be brave and try to make a few things happen. Didn't quite come off but he found some very good areas and is looking sharper. I really, really hope we can get him sorted for next season as he would make aspects of L1 look easy.

I think that's probably it
at 21:55 2 Feb 2019

I won't totally give up hope, and football has a habit of doing very weird things on days like next Sunday, but today felt like a must-win against a mediocre mid-table side and we never really looked up to it. Didn't help to lose both first-choice centre-backs and I felt our midfield were quite conservative as a consequence, but we are a rag-tag team that has been put together to try and make something happen and the connections simply aren't there yet. They hopefully will be next season but I think soon enough that'll be our main focus.

Everything is still on the table
at 22:00 29 Jan 2019

It may only seem a tiny thing but that late Bolton goal gives a slither of hope to me - Reading look the kind of team that could pull clear with some momentum but now they don't really have any and the gap is the same as it was before those two away defeats. Saturday is winnable - in which case we *should* be down to four or five points off. As others have said, we are being helped by the poor quality of those around us but it will be a singularly low points total to stay up this year and just one decent little run would heave us towards it. This isn't done yet.

If we can get Judge on an 18-month deal it's a great signing
at 12:27 12 Jan 2019

Even if he's not quite the player he was three years ago he's definitely got things that can help us in the fight to stay up. And if we went down he'd be a brilliant player to have in L1, a cut far above most others in that division even now, would be very encouraging.

Bit of a strange case. His career has gone off a cliff in the last couple of years and without asking around I'm not entirely sure why – he's not had a major injury since his Huddersfield days and on the face of things it appears Warnock simply didn't fancy him upon arriving at Cardiff, although you'd have to wonder why. General fitness level? Appears they've tried to move him on numerous times but the size of his contract got in the way; presumably at this stage he just needs to be playing football though.

Either way, he's only 30 and even in his sporadic appearances last season he made quite a notable contribution. Have always liked him – really entertaining to watch when on form and knows where the goal is too – and Lambert has certainly got a hell of a tune out of him in the past, so could be a very interesting one if it comes off.

Lambert has absolutely put this at Evans' feet hasn't he?
at 10:58 7 Jan 2019

And it's fair enough: he knows what he's inherited isn't capable of doing anything, and has his own career to protect too. It means we should have a very good idea, by the end of this month, as to whether we might see PL next season I think. Spoiler: if Elder and Keane are as good as we can manage, there's 0% chance of him staying here.

... that as far as ITFC is concerned, 2018 can fcuk right off.

Awful 12 months - the worst calendar year I can remember from a Town perspective and a lot of damage done. I think all we can do is put it behind us and hope for much better next year. I hold on to the fact that we have a manager who quite clearly sees the potential at this club and has a lucid idea of how he wants to harness it. The next five months are utterly critical in seeing that through, I think - it's one of the most pivotal spells now in our history - but we still have a chance and every one of us needs to remember that. At some point the mixture of shoddy internal performance and ill-timed external factors will finally stop working against us and things will turn around. Let's give it our best to make sure that happens in 2019.
