Grayson has always been gracious in his comments about us and he would make a good future manager for Tranmere Rovers if ever that came to being.

Although I am sure he was the Leicester player who "saved" that shot from Aldo on the line in that Playoff SF in 1993 - which cost us promotion to the Premier League or what it was then. In fact he virtually caught the ball in one of a number of huge refereeing injustices we suffered in those 1990's play-offs and League Cup SF games.

Aldo turned appealing to the face of that incompetent b****** of a referee, whereas if he had stayed focused and put the ball in after the handball we would have been there.

crazylegs cranebird - simon grayson was indeed the player who caught the ball on the goal line in the play off semi v Leicester from aldos shot. we were cheated in that match. if you remember aswell - the one and only brian little was manager of Leicester city then and also in goal for Leicester city was the one and only gavin ward who later in his career played for Tranmere and scored a goal for us from a goal kick.

Indeed! We were horrendously cheated against Swindon the season before, and also in both Aston Villa games that were in the February before the Leicester games.

I was there for that goal (I think it was against Cambridge in a 6-1 win). I also thought Brian was a good manager for Tranmere Rovers: we were also cheated in that crucial promotion game at Hull City.

Just out of interest do we have any admin monitoring this site anymore as personally I think that is a disgraceful comment by Baldy and needs to be removed.

I thought last week was a Baldy low point with his sexist and insulting comments about Vicky Jepson (which I think got removed). But this really is poor taste - I didn't think a Tranmere fan could ever stoop so low as to celebrate the death of a former referee.

How could that referee not give a penalty? There was no margin of error whatsoever.

mill park white - I find your comments staggering. lets get one thing straight- I was not in any way what so ever celebrating the fact that a former referee had passed away. you have twisted my words. what I said was the fact in two massive games for us he had two very poor performances and made decisions that were corrupt. its not my fault if you cannot read properly. now about Vicky Jepson - I agree I did slag her off but only because she was poking her nose into Tranmere rovers business. so are you now saying I cannot stick up for Tranmere rovers when some blonde bimbo is talking garbage.

Apologies for twisting your words Baldy. I just tried to re-read your comments in your original post to see how I could have made such a mistake. You know, the ones along the lines of -terrible referee -since deceased- good riddance- but they seem to have been removed.
