Three reasons why the answer may be yes. Very poor Summer recruitment (again). Team selection all over the place. (Including too many favourites). Thoroughly repetitive and boring interviews. (Totally uninspiring If that's how he talks to the players).

OK, he may not be on the brink but is there any argument about the three points I have made?

PS. Apologies to Micky, his name is Mellon.

No.

Team selection is all over the place due to injuries
Interviews don’t win matches (and compared to Micky Adams he’s a poet)
Summer recruitment reflects the financial position we are in.

Mellon's interview on the Oxford defeat is a prime example of his uninspiring and repetitive style and there is no self blame apparent.

As I've said before I support him till end of season however Shrewsbury comments that he was out of his depth at league 1 level scare me to death

Micky made his point with Banks who changed the Gillingham game, so why was he benched again at Oxford?

We've been in this position before under Mellon (remember Mansfield away) which this game reminded me of. We came good then so why not this season?
We do seem to be suffering from poor reffing decisions and woeful officials, injuries don't help and poor decisions by players in all departments.
As said before here, what's needed is to make ourselves hard to beat for a few games. Maybe go 5 at the back away and a solid 4-4-2 at home. Just stop conceding goals, pick up some points and eak out a few 1-0's.
Where is Jacob Maddox, does anyone know?

Just what happened to the top third budget that was put about what ever league we are in?

Out of his depth or not I haven't seen one realistic suggestion for someone who could replace him, haven't got the budget, simple enough really

tranman - firstly you have spelt micky mellons name wrongly to start your thread. then why on earth have this thread - micky mellon has only been manager for approx. 3 years and we have had 3 trips to Wembley and 2 promotions. what on earth do you want. your thread - mellon on the brink is absolutely laughable. in the past 10 years we have had some of the worst managers ever - rob Edwards, micky adams, john barnes, gary brabin, etc. micky mellon has now got 3 teams promoted - Fleetwood town, shrewsbury town and Tranmere rovers. he knows what it takes to get promoted. at this moment in time micky mellon should stay as manager for at least the end of the season.

It was a political statement to keep fans engaged whilst we were cut adrift in the NL, and now reality has bitten, I'm sure if he was to be interviewed he would regret saying it or phrase it different

The top third budget quote was an aim, an aspiration, an objective, not a promise or a statement of fact. It was - and presumably still is - part and parcel of his 'back to L1 within five years' vision and longer term vision of a self-sustainable Championship club.

Palios' quote was spot on but obviously there isn't a magic money tree that you just shake when you get a promotion that'll immediately catapult you into the top third payers. That's why at this level we now need external investment to help move us towards these aspirations.

We don't know what he says to the players. He will speak to the press. To them he will say whatever. I hope he can inspire the players but when doing so he's not doing an interview.

loyden 1 - thanks for your comment. there is absolutely no other manager out there at the moment who should be Tranmere manager than micky mellon. he played for us for nearly 5 years so knows exactly was is needed etc. for all the other Tranmere fans I will repeat what I said before- 3 Wembley trips and 2 promotions with micky mellon. also last season we beat mk dons 2-1 at home in a top of the table clash. what fans do not relise is - of course this season is going to be harder for us because the teams in league 1 are of a better standard. keep the faith.

the savvy among us predicted this start.

we lost a huge player in norwood [not the goals, but the style of play his abilities allowed], have had two consecutive promotions and are rebuilding a team.

mellon is someone who adapts. whilst he gets things sorted we have one job: to not be idiots who can't hold our nerve when the going gets tough

They might have had a point if their board were giving him £5,000+ a week to offer signings, but I don't think that was the case at all.



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