We are play off bound with a team that Brabin couldn't get a tune out of, and mickey has done that despite the additional handicap of taking over mid-season.
That's not entirely fair, as most people were not complaining when Brabin had 5 in 5 and got top and also Mickey is getting great form with a goalkeeper and defense all of whom are Brabin recruits, except Ridehalgh who is a retained player and Ihiekwe who is a throwback to the league days.
However although I don't think Brabin was complete garbage like some might, I still feel more assured by Mellon, as at least Mellon has encouraged more goal scoring in the team, by getting a bit more out of Brabin signings like Cook and has been willing to be a little more experimental at times with tactics and a bit more shrewd with subs.
For me Brabin tried his best, but compared to his old mucka Micky Mellon he did come up a bit short, but if it wasn't for players like Cook, Harris, McNulty, Davies etc, Mellon might be not have been doing as well, depending on his recruitment had he been in charge in June, although what little influence Mellon has had on recruitment so far, I:E: Dunn and Tollit, as examples, looks reassuring.
So Brabin deserves a bit of thanks and respect for trying his best and not least for achieving, until recently, the best points total Tranmere, if I recall, have ever had.
Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.
