Gone behind (again) from a set piece!

We definitely need to stay in this.
Could do with getting in their box.

Hopefully, we can make a comeback!
Paul Mullin has scored again! (Pen.) 6 for the season.

Newport have clearly got the most comfortable grass in the league; they're spending enough time lying on it.

Yes, and the ref's been buying it every time. No change to their style of two years ago, quite clearly. Flynn's definitely got a bit of a proclivity for the dark arts.

We need a magic MJ sub at half time.

Could do with VAR. One free kick they were given was when the player tripped up his right foot with his left! The commentators suggest that Tranmere only ever play long and direct. Based on the half, I can see why they think that. I think Feeney and Young should be given a chance. Maybe take off Banks because of his yellow card.no shots at all says a lot... The team last week had fourteen shots....

The Newport players should be ashamed of themselves but I doubt if they are! Surely something should be done about them congratulating themselves after the sending off. Shameful behaviour.

Anthony Coggins the referee feared the worst.

He of Chester v Rovers VNL fame or is that infamy.

He definitely has a bias for Newport!

Anyway, before we are bombarded by the usual suspects, four out of six games have been played away, quite a few teams are playing badly and conceding goals and we have players to come back, so things could be far worse.

Not good, started too defensive, no outlet and setup not to lose.
We did lose!
Not a shot on target, their goalie had a day off, nowt to do.

Not my idea of playing football.
Shape wasn't brilliant, another set piece goal again from a mistake.

They weren't great and maybe with hindsight should have had a go and tried to put under pressure, but the sending off didn't help.
Not worth a tenner!
Crap service, not good enough!

That was truly dire. Back to the absolute rubbish of the early games. We had a good side out today with a first choice/ equal back 5 (Murphy and Davies interchangeable for me) and 3 guaranteed starters in midfield. This playing 1 up front does not work when we don't have a target man. Jacko however seems unwilling to recognise that and we persisted until 4 minutes from time when the game was lost already.Created absolutely nothing with not a single shot on target.
The sending off shocking reactions by Newport players but doubt it will be over turned on appeal - looking at it again his right foot seems to come out after the initial challenge as well. Have to say playing as we were I think we would have lost even without the sending off but we will never know now.
Finally referee was terrible beyond belief - and not just because of the sending off.
Bright spots very few, other than Murphy made two excellent saves, Clarke was solid as ever and Young looked excellent when he came on. Hasn't been easy start for Jacko with Covid last week and this week and I appreciate we have had more away games but even so 6 points from 18 is not good.

Never a sending off but at the end if the day dont give the ref the decision to make especially when he looked like he was itching to get his cards out

I don't watch the ifollow games, only the highlights on Quest. From reading various forum comments, there seems to be several matches now where we haven't even had a shot on target!

The team has been depleted due to the Covid 19 situation within the club. The team still managed a reasonable performance against the top 2 teams. The top two teams are only 7 points ahead. Yes, performances need to improve but there needs to be a settled team. I prefer to look on the bright side. There is a long way to go.

I knew it! No comment when we comfortably beat Scunthorpe and the only comment on the Salford game came (shock horror!!) when we were 2-0 down. Painfully obvious you’re champing at the bit to see the team fail. Or more specifically, the manager. Your clear contempt for both MM and Jacko is baffling.

To be fair that wasnt a depleted side though was it? We had players missing that might have played but that could pretty much be a starting 11. Jackson says we were not upto it today in his post match and i think thats a fair assessment. Newport played the ref much better than we did and Jackson admitted we knew thats how they would play , using the “dark arts” yet the team were not streetwise enough not to fall into their traps

Today not a the races. No shots on goal no corners. Second best though the hole game. We need a win on Tuesday.
