Many saddos and quite a few weirdos spend far too long looking at other teams messageboards, some even spend hours of their time posting on them. Notts County Mad being a prime example with regular visitors from other clubs.

To then bring that information back here onto this beautiful league wide forum is bizarre. Who cares? Loads of idiots on all the main unofficial messageboards of L2 clubs posting absolute trash in the safety of their own.

I have no idea why but whatever floats your boat as they say. I can think of better things to do. Netflix for one

We had a Rochdale fan posting who pretended to be a Bury fan for ages.

Woodyard in most people's eyes has been a big disappointment.

Our club captain but not man enough for the role , he's weak & let's other teams & ref's bully him.

Does the nitty gritty stuff that doesn't linger in the memory for long , but he needs 3 touches on the ball before making a pass ( which will be sideways & not forward ) .

Evans played him top of a diamond away at Accrington where we won 4-0 & he was brilliant that day .

Fergie keeps dropping him ( he has a team of Evans players ) physical athletes & not footballers so he's giving everybody game time to see who to keep & who to get rid of.

I think Woodyard will be get rid of , not captain material & league 2 probably his standard .
Creativity isn't his forte, so no surprise he passes sideways rather than forward. He was the same here and knew what he could and couldn't do.

Tbh, Posh felt a weird move for him. A good player, and I think he'd be fine in L1, just not suited to how Posh want to play and probably exposes his weaknesses rather than play to his strengths.

And btw we might not be good enough for third place but we got six points and 2 clean sheets against you.

Yep, and I said you played very well and deserved it at the time. So congratulations. You're still not good enough to go up and you'll be lucky to cling onto a play off place with your run in.

Just because you're on a decent run at the moment, doesn't mean your fans need to go into full "WE'RE GUNNA BEAT LINCOLN TO THE TITLE" frenzy.

With the momentum built up from the run they are on I can certainly see Tranmere nicking third spot.
If (massive IF) we are both looking good for automatic promotion come game 45 we could engage in a heated debate on the 'who hates Bolton more' debate.

That's not a debate at all, now the real plastic question, Scouse or Manc might get a few bites!!!!

Bury, Carlisle, Lincoln, FGR, MK Dons - They're going to lose points. They aren't getting top 3. No way. No chance. Not happening.

Just looked it up and we've been top of the league since the fifth game of the season. Ridiculously consistent.
I could have sworn we went top for a week or two back in November?

We went top in week 5 then as you say you went top for a couple of weeks in late November/ early December then we went top again and have been there ever since bar 20 minutes when Bury took the lead at Cheltenham lol!
We've been top after 33 of the 39 rounds of the league matches.

Yep, would be a big disappointment not to win the title after being up there for the majority of the season. You can rest assured the Cowleys won't except doing everything to get our third trophy in the cabinet in three seasons.

I have not seen or heard a single Tranmere fan say that. We are just enjoying seeing our team beat all comers at the moment and taking each game as it comes and seeing where we are at the end of the season. If we can grab third place, and remember that it is now in our own hands to do so, that will be fantastic and beyond our wildest dreams this time last year. If its in the Play off so be it. If we don`t make the Play offs OK the vast majority of us will still think we have had a good season and exceeded expectations. However if you fail to make the Play Offs, judging by some of the stuff you have written on here since August, it will be the biggest disaster since the Wall Street Crash.

If we beat Carlisle on Saturday we go nine points clear of 8th and have a game in hand on everyone but we’ll be lucky to cling onto last playoff place apparently. :brill:

Devon_Lad was definitely that lad in school who took his ball and walked away when nobody passed to him.

Of course, the downside to all this is that we've had to sacrifice the Lincolnshire Senior Cup...

If you're including the checkatrade trophy in your boast then we're gonna include the Cumberland Cup in ours

We've only recently found out what a trophy looks like. We'll take what we can.


I'm any case, the day out to Wembley (and winning) was an incredible feeling.

According to Football Web Pages, MK Dons were top of table for Games 18, 20 & 21 [3 in total]
Sadly doesn't say who the opponents were for these matches.

You’re trying to reason with Devon_Lad but there really is no point as he’s always right and will never admit otherwise.
