tranmere rovers - north west rivals
04 November, 2018 18:26
seeing that we now have a free 7 days before our next match, I am hoping to start a debate about which of our north west rivals all tranmere rovers fans hate the most. over the past 20 to 25 years we have played so many north west teams, but if you ask me the teams I hate the most are Bolton wanderers, everton, and Wrexham. there are also 2 more teams I hate who are not from the north west, swindle town and Leicester city. it seems every single time we play swindle and Leicester things go wrong and we get beat. Leicester cheated us in the play off semi, then beat us in the cup final, and swindle swindled us in the play off semi then turned the lights off when aldo had 2 goals. but nothing can beat the hate I have for Bolton and everton.

I don't hate anyone.

I just support my team.

Have a go at this yourself and you might feel better.

"I've decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear".
I'd rather relish and revel in the rivalry (now, there's a tongue twister!).
I'm going to hate it when Oldham bring 1500 supporters to PP, adding to the tension, anticipation, atmosphere, drama and the satisfaction in victory; not to mention the small matter of additional income. Damn these North West rivalries! In fact, I hate them so much, I wish we could play our despicable rivals every week.
Baldy, you've got to love Bolton, Everton and Wrexham for providing us with some of our most memorable victories; don't bite the hand that feeds you!

I will never forget those as*hole Bolton fans at Wembley in the play off final. They were so arrogant and cocksure. We even had quite a few of them coming up to me and my 2 pals ( wearing our Rovers shirts ) outside the stadium before the game, shaking our hands and saying ' hard luck lads, better luck next year.' And they were saying this with an unbelievable arrogance.. They were so sure that they were going to beat little old Tranmere..Some Rovers fans on this forum said that the week before in the Leyland DAF final vs Birmingham, that the Brummie fans were even worse. I didnt see it like that at all, The Brummies I met before the game were fine. A couple of them said to me ' Good luck today, may the best team win.' One of the Brummies even said ' We know todays game is nowhere near as important to you as next weeks final versus Bolton and I sincerely hope you beat them next week..' They disliked Bolton as much as we did, lol.. Going back to the Bolton final itself, that is the most drained ive ever been watching the Rovers. My voice was so hoarse at the end of the game and when that final whistle went it was sheer EUPHORIA. Stuff you Phil Neal and your arrogant b*stard fans..I remember walking back down Wembley Way after the game with Rovers fans on one side and Bolton on the other with a thin line of Met Police separating us and the Bolton fans were mightily p*ssed off and singing ' Lets all stab a scouser, Lets all stab a scouser La la la la, la la la la...'We just laughed at them, lol..brilliant..Anyway, me n my 2 pals got on the tube and hit the West End..we got absolutely sloshed that night. MAGIC.

PS. Those Birmingham fans before that Leyland DAF were ok, if we had beaten them though then it could have been a different story meeting them after the game.

Agree HKR that Bolton playoff final was the most nail biting game ever once Malkin scored time just stood still ,on the way home there was 5of us in my car and we had hung the scarf back on to car and coming home on the M 40 we were passed by a couple of Bolton coaches and it was likes a chimps tea party swarming all over coach windows v signs they were blue in the face with temper it was quite funny ,I am not like HKR who celebrated in the west end in style we dined in the now defunct Little Chef near Whitchurch ,I.dislike Bolton and Man U next best nail biter was the Aston Villa replay nearly had a heart attack watching the penalty shoot out we should have won happy days

There wasnt any trouble with those Bolton fans down Wembley Way after the game but it was simmering a bit..One Bolton idiot stepped out and briskly walked over to us Rovers fans on the other side trying to be brave , and this big Birkenhead lad stepped out n confronted him with the words 'F*ck off you Bolton tw*t.' The Bolton idiot soon backed off.

Sorry to disagree but May 12th 2018 Borehamwood will never be beaten for me as the most nail biting game ever .The others don't even come close.

Hi HKR
Not remotely for me. What the Borehamwood win meant for the club and what it would have meant if we'd have lost are the big difference. Also playing in such an important game for 102 minutes with 10 men and overcoming all the odds just feels indescribably good even nearly six months after it happened.

Probably Borehamwood would just edge it..I was younger at the Bolton final and full of joy once the final whistle had gone whereas borehamwood I got a little emotional after the whistle had blown and not afraid to admit I had a little tear in my eye..I also remember the words of Mark Palios after the defeat at Plymouth which saw us lose our league status - ' This is a sad day for this proud old club.' Just reading those words brought a different type of tear to my eye.

was at all the games mentioned above, but last years wembley was something else.

we were a club with decades of failure, we had the previous year's final which was a soggy, deflated casey of a final for us and boreham was the end of an arduous season that was so sluggish upto december that the season felt like extracting a wet welly from mudbath, slow, dirty and in no way thrilling. last season was a chore.

and at the end we had wembley.

the sending of, the injuries, the equaliser if ever there was a time were the players and fans could have been forgiven for laying down and allowing what was obviously fate, bad luck, everything going against us to just run its course of inevitable disappointment then it was then: 10 men, no subs, no legs, no hope.

but that's not how it happened. halfway through the second half the players and fans synced in a perceptible way. there was an energy in that crowd that i haven't experienced outside the realms of psychoactive drugs.

norwoods goal was an explosion of emotion for everyone, but there was a more spontaneous eruption of noise caused by one of their players over hitting a pass to scotty. we knew they were there for the taking and that the players would need us, there was a noise from us that swept right round our half of the ground. it must have seemed strange to the boreham fans and players - watching the game back even the commentators mention the moment - and our players definitely responded.

it was an important game in terms of our literal status as a club. but i think it cemented something between us all. see ginelly's non celebration whenj he scored against us. see the lack of condemnation of errors from the crowd, when 12 months ago the crowd would turn edgy at a poor throw in.

anyone who was there will know what i'm talking about. that goal and the minutes afterwards have imprinted on me. i was with some people who are very important to me, and it's not a moment i will forget nor one i can recall without a very visceral sense of being back there.

Without doubt the Borehamwood final was a lot more important with regards to the future of the club, but I was still an utter shuddering bag of nerves at both borehamwood n bolton.

The Exeter '87 game isnt far behind, but at least with the Exeter game , we still had those 4 other relegation games that were played the day after to fall back on if we hadnt beaten Exeter. Different with the Wembley games though, Win or bust..

Lucky ,to have gone to all the Tranmere Wembley finals.The most epic for me was the
Borehamwood playoff Final it was torture.
It was not helped by a Big Bloke from Hong Kong standing in the Row in front of me crying for joy.Checked the predition league HKR mate.

Keep the Faith

After Rovers - Manchester City (from the 1970's).
Enjoy - Any team that plays decent football without playing Dirty (on or off the field), & having officials that seem to side with them.
Dispise - Man Utd & Wrexham (arrogant Druids). plus Shrewsbury / Everton (past era - always remember George Yardley),

I was at that game at shrews on a tue nite .the everton game was coming up on the sat and the league made us play.a sickening tackle by wood in yardleys kidneys nearly ended his career. Alf wood wasn't allowed to play at ppark in return fixture such was the outcry from rovers fans.

Yes he ended yardleys playing carter
I always feel that a football career a short one
Players cut off in their prime like yardley were Bobby Tynan and Mark hilditch

The Bolton and Boreham games were equally tense but for contrasting reasons.The Bolton game was about getting to a level that for all but a few elderly supporters was a foreign land.The Boreham game was about returning us to a level that all but the youngest of supporters would remember and crave
