Post Match MM/if you were MM would you start BT

Post Match Mellon Head had a slightly different tone this week, maybe a case of the win allowing him to be a bit more honest or a case of nonexcuses left, seemed to acknowledge that this group isn't good enough as it stands and that we need more flare. An acknowledgment that it's not just about silky skills and as much about digging in.

In respects of Tollit, acknowledging we lack flare, pace and the ability to go past players and the fact he's not fit do you start Tollit Wednesday. Personally I thick not, at this stage I feel he may offer something more coming on from the bench with 25-30 to go, he'll be fresh defenders will be starting to flag, he can mix it up and gives him the best chance to run riot.

Reckon he might give the new lad from Barnsley some game time as well as Tollitt but probably not both at the same time. 50/50 to me which of the two he starts with.

there must be a huge potential to play Tollitt, but I wouldn't start him on Wednesday, he needs to come back gradually probably used for 20 minutes at the end of the next few games until he can build back up match fitness.

It was the Chester game last season that their gamesmanship got him sent off!

I thought when I saw the title of this thread, it was about which media organisation Micky Mellon should speak to first after matches (Sm7)

Mellon's preferred rota for the cattle call.

Tranmere TV
Wirral News
Wirral Globe
Sky
Liverpool Echo
BT Sport.

Tollit was alleged to be fully fit by Mellon, but I suspect he'll start and only get 70-75 minutes, with the Barnsley lad Dylan getting the remainder of the pitch time that Tollit won't play, unless Mellon plans to dovetail them both into the team at the same time, for a reasonable length of time.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

Tollitt was a very serious injury and he needs easing back.Much as we need his flair we cannot afford him to be back on the bench for months.

Has anyone heard anything about Wallace and whether he is ever likely to be able to play a sustained run of matches

Wallace will be out until at least January according to Mellon.

He's had to have another operation about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

We'd be better planning for life without him, even if he is eating up valuable cash.

Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't!

Also someone replying to their own posts that they've quoted. There can't be many sadder sights than that, with the possible exception of an abandoned wet dog by the roadside and people liking their own stuff on social media.

Yes because the manger made yet another poor decision, when have you ever heard of a player being out 8 months and starting from the off especially in @#$%& wet weather. It's not like he's even been playing reserve football. As for wet dogs, that's up their with people who think Premier League players should be on our maybe list and writing on backs of stamps.

I don’t doubt for a second Tollitt would of started if not given the nod by the club doctor and physio first ... this isn’t pub football.

Assuming Tollitt wasn't risking his injury - and it doesn't seem like he was - I'm not too fussed whether he played the first half hour or last half hour.

If he hadn't played him last night and just sat him on the bench in the unbearable weather, MM would've gotten so much flak it's unbelievable (even more so if we'd have drawn or lost).

So for me, him playing the first 35 mins in the light rain while the pitch still held up is a damn sight better than the last 35 were any twinge would've been amplified on a heavy pitch.

MM's made the correct call regarding Tollit and the team last night and hopefully we get him for a full 45 on Saturday!
