Morning , had a good chat this morning with Jay Harris and he can put weight on his leg which is a good sign. Although his season over he's hoping it s not as bad as first thought he's feeling positive but scan booked for 1.30pm. Personally I think FGR had a plan to target Jay and this high fives of there players after every discraceful tackle confirmed it with me

I don't say anything personal about you or anybody else as there are only 1 or two people I know personally on here.I don't slag anybody off,just put forward my opinions and if I disagree with somebody,I say so.But no name calling.For your information,I predicted we'd lose last night,so I'll be getting 1 point unfortunately on the Prediction League. But we were excellent in my opinion for the first hour and ok for the rest of the game but ran out of steam and were vulnerable to their speedy counter attacks late on.No player let us down and deserved criticism,it just wasn't meant to be our night.

I tend to agree with you there, Hoots seems to think his opinion overrules everyone elses.

I've noticed this quite a bit on here.

Each to their own I say.

Having just watched the highlights........ how did we not score?

Lady Luck was on their side last night. If she had been smiling in our direction, then we score at least 2, with a bit more composure, 5.

It's not over until it's mathematically impossible. If Lincoln win 9 on the trot, then fair play to them, they'll deserve it.

Some great play in the highlight, touch and go. Brilliant to watch.

That's my opinion, he was hardly man of the match, and I don't see anything of note when he plays.

I would select Maynard every time over Wallace.

I'm guessing Maynard was not quite 100% last night as he wasn't on the bench.

Maybe I was a bit harsh with my initial post, but I just don't think Wallace is any good since his injuries.

He was once a decent player, but since his return he's been average at best.

Our chances would be vastly improved with Maynard back in the side.

I'm not going to sugar coat bad performances and in my opinion Wallace does not bring anything to the party.

Fine.I have no problem with any of that and agree Maynard should be back in ASAP

I just thought your description of Wallace seemed at odds with :-

I totally agree! At the end of the day, we all have one thing in common, we all love Tranmere Rovers and wish them well.

Hopefully the result and display on Friday will have us all praising every member of the team and hoping that Lincoln slip up a few times during their next 5 games.

We were excellent for the first hour but there was no way that we were going to be able to keep up that level for the whole game. The Harris injury was obviously a big blow but to blame Wallace as some have on here is way wide of the mark. We basically ran out of steam towards the end and their pacy sub number 14 caught out our tiring defenders on a few occasions. The best chances we missed were by Connor Jennings yet some wrongly persist on blaming Norwood again. Their second half subs changed the game whereas ours didn't. We were going all out for the win so there was always a chance that they would nick one on the counter attack.Based on the first hour,it was daylight robbery-the last half hour not entirely surprising.
Buxton's two free kicks were desperately unfortunate not to go in,one smacking against the crossbar,the other brilliant saved by their keeper who had a fine game.
. I agree with your comments Hoots and realistically it's the play offs I'm afraid ! Jay Harris has been a revelation since he has come back in the team and probably fresher as a result of his lay off.I do feel the FGR player may have left his foot in, which was in keeping with the horrible physical side they were.I do wonder where you draw the line in this win at all costs attitude ? It is precisely teams and tactics like this that you rely on a strong referee to offer you some protection,but sadly they were allowed to get away with it. Some chances were wasted by Hughes also and we may have been over elaborate in our build ups on occasions. Wallace did ok but he is much slower these days and cannot tackle like he used to, but he has a good footballing brain and can pick a pass. The subs should have been made on at least the hour mark, Connor Jennings was out on his feet but stayed on! Our next meeting with FGR may well be at Wembley when we can set the record straight.

have just viewed the brief highlights on you tube of last nights game. from what I saw , we had plenty of chances and they had the one chance from which they scored and it sure looked a lucky goal. connor Jennings should have buried that chance in the 2nd half. I would describe the challenge on james Wallace, immediately after buxtons free kick crashed off the bar, as 'animalistic.' straight red for me.. jammy FGR gits.

Micky got it wrong for me last night. Totally dominant display whilst Harris was on the pitch, snapping at their heals not giving them a second on the ball. We lost all legs in the middle when he came off and they steadily saw more and more of the ball.
Personally would of dropped Connor bavk into the middle with Hughes and brought Sousa on in the number 10 role, Wallace half arsed not interested unift, Connor would of put a shift in and atleast gsve us the legs we lost when Harris went off.

I think Micky would have learnt a lot from last night.
For the first time he would have witnessed what a bunch of lucky cheats FGR are.


4 wins on the bounce needed now and we'll see where we are...

Agree with that rover87. Connor Jennings likes a tackle and can distribute.

What little we've all seen of Sousa he looks like he can make things happen and scare the heck out of retreating defenders.

Again I have little evidence as he has barely been on the pitch 15 minutes but we needed that pressure down the flanks to give support to Ridehalgh and Vaughan overlapping.

Ridehalgh takes such vicious looking curling freekicks from the left I don't know why he can't have a pop at the corners.

With Buxton's last free-kicks hitting the woodwork twice n the last few games could he not have a go from the right and have Hughes lurking on the edge of the box or challenging for headers himself?

I was glancing at the bench every couple of minutes from 60 minutes on hoping to see a bit of activity and I think I was staring at it from 75 minutes trying to use my non-existant psychic powers to have Sousa getting his shirt on.

MM is the manager and has a record second to none with an inside track to the players' qualities so I will bow to his greater knowledge but sometimes as a spectator you are thinking "GTF on with it and do something!"

Great news for Jay Harris, results from scan not as bad as thought. Will be out for rest of season but can start rehab tomorrow.

Good luck to the lad. He will be sorely missed. (pun acknowledged but not intended).

Type of player you would want to go into battle with but if he was playing for the opposition you would hate.

I think that's a compliment.

I had expected a lot more negativity, so well done all (mostly anyway). I wasn't able to go but from what I was able to follow we were comfortably the better side for 60 minutes and the old problem of inability to score has cost us dearly. Not any injury or anything else. I think those criticising Wallace are way off. We were still the better side when he came on and anyone expecting him to play like Harris are mad. They weren't the same type of player when Wallace first came here and they certainly aren't now. Both have their strengths and weaknesses. Now we have to adapt again and find a way to win with the players that are available.

As they say, its the hope that kills you....
There is still time for Licoln to slip, but if they do win all their remaining games, then this result would make no difference. I don't think now is the time to experiment too much with formations or line-ups. It is far from over, if we win well against Aldershot and however unlikley Torquay sneak one against Lincoln we are back where we were, football can be unpredictable.

League is far from over yet and anything is possible...just everyone needs to keep positive and keep supporting the Rovers to 3 points for every game....let's face it forest green had 12 men with the referee on their side....let them cheats think they got 1 over on us and we'll smash them in playoffs on a worst case scenario if we don't win league....just everyone needs to keep positive and keep supporting the Rovers like the way we have...sing, scream, shout for every ball as we are the 12th man...S.W.A

Watched the highlights and how FGR No.6 doesn't get a red for that assault (it wasn't a tackle) on Wallace is beyond me.

If that's not a red card offence then I don't expect to ever see another player sent off.

The criticism of Wallace/Norwood on this thread is well wide of the mark.

Norwood may not look like he's ever going to score again but his work rate is without question and he keeps the opposition defence on the move and under pressure.

Wallace is not Harris but I don't see that he did much wrong. He's never going to have the engine Harris has after his injuries but is there a better passer at the club. He also doesn't shy out of a tackle which given his injury record is admirable. More than happy to have him as an option in the squad.
