Oh wow! Well those last 17 games weren’t too bad where they, well some of them. But nonetheless if you’d of asked any Tom Dick or Stanley whether they thought the Super White Army would be so high in the table at this stage they’d of laughed in your Super White face.
But now the critics are silenced and the doubters are doubting their own judgement as the Rovers lie in 8th position and two points off the play offs.
A bit of a difference to pre-season predictions where Rovers were expected to continue …

Finishing your school homework on a dark Sunday night when the deadline is Monday Morning. Packing for a summer holiday the night before your flight. Waiting until Christmas eve to begin your Christmas shopping spree for you and your loved ones. Or waiting for the final day of the transfer deadline to ensure you have all the players you need until the window opens again, and then in that window leave it until the last day to stay competitive against other opponents in your respected division.
We’ve all been there, maybe …

After the Super White Armies commendable start to 2011-12 seasons, the Rovers slipped controversially many would say to their first defeat of the season away to Notts County.
The game will be more remembered however by the blunders and mishaps from Referee Michael Naylor. The man in black (with metaphorically white stripes) awarded County a dubious penalty decision so close to the end the Tranmere faithful would of started to smell a scent of picking up a draw, but for it to grasped upon them and greedily gobbled up by their …

As the Tranmere fans of this world will know. The clubs ownership has recently been in the spotlight regarding a takeover from the ‘Tranmere Rovers trust’ who are launching a scheme to raise funds for a purchase of the club.

Before the season began, the Rovers were one of a few teams favourite for the …

“The real stuff begins Saturday so I hope you will all be here cheering the lads on. Your support is invaluable.”
These words were stated by Rovers boss Les Parry in Last Tuesdays match day programme before their final friendly of the pre-season campaign as he like many other League One enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the new coming season in good spirit.
This season League One presents us with a list of mouth-watering fixtures from the newly formed Buckinghamshire derby (Milton Keynes Dons vs Wycombe) to the fierce Steel City Derby (Sheffield United …

5 European cups, 18 league titles, 7 FA Cups, 7 League cups, but now a defeat to Tranmere to add to their illustrious name, a lacklustre Liverpool side stumbled their way to a 2-0 loss against their Mersey neighbours.
Albeit a misfiring reserve side, there were plenty of good signs for the Rovers faithful to get excited about, after finishing pre-season on a high, as they look forward to welcoming newly promoted Chesterfield to Prenton Park on Saturday for their first game of the new anticipated season.

McLaren was a year and a half into his second spell at the club having starred under Ronnie Moore in the 2006/07 and 2007/08 seasons but found himself out of the first team regularly after suffering from various injuries.
It comes as good news to most Tranmere fans, who saw McLaren as a consistent weak link in the midfield; citing him as lazy and regularly criticising the 34 year-old’s performances.
Manager Les Parry said: ‘I’m sorry …
