    So if I've got this right, TC wafted four names on a bit of paper, so we can relax safe in the knowledge he was on top of identifying signing targets.
    Strip sales are on a par with previous seasons, so we can relax safe in the knowledge that the current kit is well liked and sales figures reflect this.
    We have Plummer and Tess, so we can relax safe in the knowledge that we are well sorted in the CB positions.
    There are no plans to kit out the void as a supporters bar, so we can relax safe in the knowledge that Paisley pubs will not lose out on valuable revenue.
    No airlines were interested in an advert on the dome (the facility, not Jim Goodwin's napper), so we can relax safe in the knowledge we aren't missing anything if we fail to get a windae' seat on our holibobs.
    Our strikers are pish, but will be fine and dandy once Thommo' is fit, so we can relax safe in the knowledge that Thommo' is not only a legend and a handsome man, he's a fcuking miracle worker.
    Tommy will only 'fall on his sword' in eighteen months time, so we can relax safe in the knowledge that at least one Scottish pensioner won't be worried about affording those fuel bills for the next two winters.
    Finally, we let Gowser go, so we can relax safe in the knowledge that Paisley polis will feel safer out on the beat this festive season.
    Yo ho, fcuking ho. I'm convinced..... we are in great shape. Nothing to worry about, nothing to see here, move along....

    Other than Thompson these 'first picks' we're same players who led us to 5 straight defeats at the start of the season, our worst start in club history. The whole Craig experiment has been a disaster and needs to end........NOW!!

    the whole lot has been a sketch - goodwin, teale and craig. They all need removed and we start with a clean slate. The board should pay them off out their own pockets for the ridiculous appointments.

    Quite bizarre that concessions are less than half of full price.
    15 and 10 would make more sense than 18 and 8.

    Greetings fellow buds.
    Inspired by the season long thread about Leicester City I'm going to use this thread to blog about my other footballing love Tranmere Rovers.
    Those of you who know me will already know that at 18 I left home to move to liverpool to attend Uni - 26 years later I've just not made it back!
    I'm lucky my folks still stay localish and now as a proud dad to a wonderful lad I've installed him into the Saints way much to his mothers dismay !
    Anyway I digress - on arrival in Liverpool in 1988/89 I spent most of that season trying to cure my football addiction by attending both Anfield and Goodison watching both the reds and blues of merseyside - back in the day you could turn up and pay a fiver and stand on the Kop or Gladys Street End. Both the liverpool and Everton teams of the day were packed full of quality and many Scottish internationals played for both teams. However as the season went in I never really felt part of it- I was used to turning up to love street - standing in the same bit of the ground - seeing the same faces and feeling part of "something" I was used to crowds of 4000 so 40000 in the Liverpool or Everton grounds was alien to me at this point I didn't even know Tranmere Rovers existed !
    One of the lads I played footy with at college came from a place called "the Wirral" only a short Mersey ferry ride or train journey away - he was a tranmere fab and encouraged me to go and watch them in the old Division 4 .
    The reason I'm going to blog throughout the season about tranmere - my memories and experiences watching them home and away is because last weekend tranmere sacked their manager and are currently rock bottom of the football leagues
    Feel free to post comments - get involved or just read along as hopefully throughout the remainder of the season starting getting some results and climb the league and don't drop out into non league obscurity like Chester City - Wrexham - and Stockport - all local tranmere rivals .
