No love for Ebbsfleet? Everyone could be owners.

We've made our decision and we're happy with it.

Yeah, they'll develop players and sell them, but I think that part will be interesting too, following a player that used to play for the Rovers when he gets his big break suiting up for the Mighty Liverpool Reds!

Looking forward to it, now Ive just got to find a way to watch the occasional game.
But what will you do when Liverpool pulls a Leeds and then has to face Tranmere in a life or death battle to avoid relegation to the Conference?

LOL. One of my friends is from Stoke. As a kid he cheered for Stoke as the little team and cheered for Leeds as his big team.

Now he just cheers for Stoke.

I have to say that I'm ecstatic that you guys are on the Super White Army bandwagon. I've let people back "home" in Wallasey and Birkenhead know about this thread and they think it's awesome.

I'm going to email the Rovers to let them know about it too once we get a few more people on board.

In a way this is making me a bit homesick too. I so want to go to a match again now. I was telling my wife about this thread and she feels the same way. I've got a feeling that we will be making a pilgrimage with my large clan in the near future. My wife has to have our latest addition first!

Many a Friday night, when I was really young, I would trudge to Prenton Park in the pouring rain and stand with the 1500 or so faithful and see the Rovers get trounced 3 or 4 nothing. This was back in the old Division 4, the lowest of the low. Still great times and the meat pies at the ground were superb and made it all worth it!

Once Tranmere started to get somewhat good in the Jim Steele/Ian Muir/Johnny Morrissey era it was like a dream. We started to get 5,000 and more in the stadium! One of my best memories was a last match of the season game against Crewe. I think there was 10000 or more in attendance. The match ended 1-1 and both teams were promoted. The pitch invasion at the end was incredible. Both sets of fans on the field hugging, shaking hands, chanting. It was freakin' awesome. I still get tingles up my spine even now thinking about it.

Another great memory is a 2-2 draw in the FA Cup with the mighty Spurs. The Rovers led at one point and Prenton Park was rocking on it's foundation.

Tranmere are a special little club and I'm delighted to see so many of you on board. We need more though. There's plenty of room!

Have to look for my old Tranny shirt now. Wonder if it still fits?

so when you were there at 1500 and then 10000 attended, didn't you accuse them of being bandwagoners?

I'm all in. If that jersey doesnt fit, either sell it to me or frame it.

I think this is going to be fun!

This is how the final day of last season unfolded from the hilarious show Soccer Saturday.

Keep in mind that the host is from Hartlepool!

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

I just realized this team is more awesome than previously thought. Their logo has a cyclone and a nuclear explosion on it! Can't wait to see the destructive power of Tranmere unleashed!

Tranmere Rovers’ loyal fans to dig deep and give financial backing to club once more

Quote:
Membership of the 500 Club, which is open to anyone, costs £5 per month which is to be paid by standing order. Each member's number will then be entered into a monthly draw. Half of the take – £1250 – will go to a monthly winner with the other 50% used by the Trust to support the club.


Parry, who has been in talks with the Trust about the project, hopes the first month's proceeds from the 500 Club can be used to purchase three bicycles to help with the training regimes of players recovering from injury at Prenton Park.
BICYCLES!

Trust website: www.twfst.org.uk

Quote:
Meanwhile, the signing of a goalkeeper and a striker hold the key to the next phase of Parry's squad building plans for the new season. Parry hopes he can secure a deal with Gunnar Nielsen that brings the Manchester City goalkeeper on loan to Rovers for the duration of the 2010-11 campaign.
Parry has been talking to Nielson, a Faroe Islands international, his agent and staff at City about the deal this week and hopes it can be resolved some time before the League One campaign kicks off on Saturday, August 7.

Once Tranmere have secured one of their priority targets for the forward positions then Parry says he will be in a better position to fill in the remaining squad vacancies.
Parry explained: “We are looking to add four or five new faces to the players we already have here. Some of the signings we make next will be squad players. The deal we want to tie up first is a first choice striker.
“We won't be in a position to move for the other players until we know how much is left in the kitty after we've signed a striker.”
A keeper from Faeroe Islands! That's awesome!

So looks like the keeper that Locke mentioned, Joe Collister, will be the backup.
