The Opposition View - Tranmere

The Opposition View - Tranmere


Following yesterday's crucial 2-1 win over Tranmere, here are some views on the game from Rovers' manager Les Parry and a few of their fans.

"You can't give two goals away," said Parry. "Both goals were gifts and we never performed in the first half. We started decently and then we didn't perform. It's an uphill battle then."

"We can't gift goals and then miss the chances we've missed."

Asked about their disallowed goal and a couple of penalty claims, the Rovers boss said: "It was a long way away to see where the ball was and whether it was offside and if it should have been a penalty twice, so I can't comment on that, but you'd like to think that one of those things would have gone for us."

"I kept kidding myself that we were doing alright in the second half, but they (Wycombe) dropped off because they were desperate for a win and it gives it a false impression I think."

"They'll think they defended a lead well and you can't argue with that."


Having travelled in numbers and endured a nightmare journey home simply to witness their eighth consecutive away defeat in a game they expected to win, the Rovers fans were baying for blood.

The following extracts are taken from Cowshed Chat, White Review and Total Tranmere.

"Just got back after a 6 hour drive in nightmare conditions, and I am still seething. Dismal performance and an unacceptable result against mediocre opposition. Scored a goal after five minutes, then attempted to defend on the edge of our own 18 yard box for the next forty. Possession gifted to a poor side who grew in confidence, played better football than us and exposed our defensive frailties through simple passing, movement and wide play of which we are completely incapable. After half time we showed some spirit, pushed men forward and created some chances which we should have scored from. But so what ? We should never have been desperately chasing the game against a bad side in a match we couldn't afford to lose."

"Great goal for McGurk. The team created enough chances but didn't get a second which may in part be down to the referee disallowing a good goal, but I don't know for sure if he boobed or not!'

"Both goals were really poor. For the first, Ainsworth at 38 has completely outpaced our defence and Goodison has lost his man, the second is just a comedy of errors. Don't think the goal that was disallowed was offside either."

"Taken in isolation you would say we were unlucky; took the lead, let two sloppy goals in, had a couple of penalty shouts, hit the bar, goal ruled out, 54% possession... but let's not kid ourselves. This was against a piss poor team low on confidence that gets thumped in every home game and we got beat by them. Taken with our current form of 1 win in 16 or whatever, we are relegation bound if this keeps up. The players' heads are getting visibly lower and the blame is now lying firmly at the door of Parry."

"I think we're in big trouble now. I cannot see where the next win is coming from and if nothing is done to change the manager we will go down. The tactics and formation are awful and predictable, we cant keep hold of a lead and we never come from behind and win. He has simply got to go now."


Dave wrote:
"We missed a lot of chances to wrap the game up today, but the fact remains that we lost to the bottom side and that good money is being paid to this manager for the grand return of 1 win in 16 games."


Kirkby wrote:
"We can't afford to sack him. He's saved the club thousands of pounds in the last few months because we no longer have to pay win bonuses."
