If you can't make Tranmere's game at home to Portsmouth in NPower League One on Saturday afternoon, why not follow our live match updates right here and join in the banter right and with other Rovers fans who are unable to attend......

 

 

 

 

Following football even at League One level is pretty expensive these days and no matter how much you love the Rovers, it will sometimes be difficult to make the games in person whether it be the lengthy away trips, or for exiles living elsewhere in the UK or abroad, the home games too.

As a result, for those fans who can't make some of the Rovers games this season, we at Total Tranmere will not only be providing this match discussion thread for you to discuss developments with the game, but in a brand new feature we will also be providing a live updates service from the game which will include team line-ups, score updates and also pictures and snippets live from the game.

Stadium - Tranmere Rovers (Day)

Tranmere of course, host Portsmouth in NPower League One on Saturday afternoon so if you're not going to the game why not join in the banter right here while the game is going on? You could use our live updates service to keep tabs on the action at the game whilst discussing all the talking points right here on our discussion thread. You could also use this thread to discuss other interesting scores throughout the league as well as discussing this game afterwards if you have been to watch the game live.

What you discuss below is up to you but hopefully it can all be focused on one thread to make it easier for everyone to use. To follow our live match updates, click on the link below and select the link for the Portsmouth game from the list.

Funnily enough, it seems their away form is the opposite of Tranmere's. According to the main site currently it's 5 wins 23 draws 2 defeats at home.

Portsmouth have 5 defeats, 3 draws 2 wins away, so statistically they should be beatable, but you just never know.

I think Tranmere will have enough though.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

typical isn,t it jervis couldn,t trap a bag of cemnet for us then sod,s law bangs a cracker in for them. i was pleased with the 1st half thought palmer & harrison did very well, great to see ash score a cracking header. idon,t know whether the cross for their goal should have been better defended or whether williams should have came for it we seemed to panic a bit in the 2nd half but thought we had done enough to take the points but to concede so soon after was a real blow. thought on paper they had some decent players but in honesty were there for the taking. hope to pick up a couple of draws in the next 2 away games and keep us up there for xmas.

2 points chucked down the drain with a combination of poor finishing and poor defending.The late misses to win the game
were typical of our current form

If we are going to be in contention for much longer we cannot afford to bank on our fellow challengers throwing points away.

A very disappointing end to what started out a very promising afternoon.

At the end we were lucky it was not a defeat when they missed that clear chance in the 8th minute of 4 minutes of
stoppage time.

Must mention the Portsmouth fans.What support they give to their team.Bearing in mind what they have had to endure with total mis management of their club over the years they showed how true fans support their club.

I thought Ash was ok today apart from a couple of miss timings, he may have got punished by a better quaity team, Gibson was certainly missed in the second half when the pace and the game opened up
Zoom was outstanding again today
Portsmouth looked a combination of individuals, and glad to gain a point

Jervis did score for Tranmere in a meaningless result and I think set one up in another game, but he wasn't around long enough to make any serious impact if he was going to.

I don't denigrate him for scoring, because he's there to do a job, it just blows knowing it was him and not someone else.

It's a bit of a disspointment to lose and I'm hacked off a bit less now, even though Tranmere conceded two to a club, lucky to still exist frankly, but it's done and the next game is the one to focus on now.

Tranmere have enough for me to keep pushing for a top 2 place, but they need to tighten up here and there on the mistakes, so they don't creep into performances too often.

A game we should have won but we didnt play particulary well in, we are missing too many players and are struggling to cope.

Ash was beaten in the air for the first goal and holmes was easily beaten before a good finish for the 2nd.

Harrison for me is not the answer and doesnt contribute much at all, Palmer wasnt any better and should have buried the chance he had. Robbo is off form at the moment and i thought Mcgurk was one of our better players though he may have a niggle.

Zoom mom for me.

5 League games without a win at home and we havent really played well at home since Doncaster. A disappointing result against a team likely to go down.

Bad result against a poor 'team' who have some good players who mostly seem to play as individuals.Robinson again extremely poor-his fault for giving away a stupid free kick which basically got them back into the game and gave them confidence.Danny Holmes asleep for their second but it was a tremendous finish from Jervis[a goal all the way from the moment it left his boot].His celebration was somewhat distasteful and uncalled for. Apparently he has said on his twitter it was because of the abuse that he was getting off the Town End paddock that he celebrated that way.

Zoom was by far our best player-I don't know why it was McGurk that was subbed unless he was injured nor why Thompson wasn't used from the bench.

Very disappointing-I will be surprised if we are still top after next Saturday's game.

I know it felt like it but fortunately we did not lose

Our small squad has been cruelly exposed by the injuries we are suffering. Too many long term crocks. The midfield has no fluency without Wallace and JLAA's pace, skill and goalscoring ability is being sorely missed as is Bag's pace and enthusiasm. To still be top of the league is a fantastic achievement. We are hanging in there by our fingertips and, thankfully, those around us aren't taking advantage

Top of the league in mid December, a goal differance of plus 20 and in the third round of the FA Cup. All this achieved on possible the smallest budget in the league. Yes, it may not last but in the meantime let all true Tranmere supporters enjoy the moment as we may not see it for a considerable time again.Get behind the players, make us the twelth man, those that sit in the stands hurling abuse, stop and think what we have achieved. If I was a Preston supporter I would feel down in the dumps but thankfully I am not. If we can get through December and still be in the top 6, who knows what may happen when are injured players return. Come on Rovers.

Jervis deserved that goal for the unfair stick he got when playing for us.

I thought he was vastly underated playing for us and showed yesterday what he was capable of.

As for the game, I don't think we can complain that we are top of the League two weeks from Christmas despite having not won in the last five home games!

Some players have gone off the boil a bit in last few weeks, cassidy since heard going back to wolves has and robinson as defo lost that edge. Im hoping come January when the main 3 come back from injury it will be start of new push.

Think Danny Holmes needs to sharpen up a little as def his fault for the Jervis goal. Seems that whenever we concede at home, it's down that right hand side. On the whole though he's been very good this season. We have to stay positive, it's another point and whay can't we go to Sheff Utd and Swindon and win? We have an excellent away record with great backing from the fans, far better than at home.

Agree with Deadly Sub that Jervis looked a very good player when he was with us and am surprised at how quickly others wrote him off. Can't blame him for enjoying the goal he scored against us.

Overall I thought we were alright on Saturday. The crowd were really anxious and I think it got through to the team. Felt sorry for McGurk who had a good game IMO but still got some flack.

Injuries have mounted up. To be honest it doesn't say much about the clubs around us with (far bigger budgets) that we are still top. If we can hang in over Christmas til we get the likes of Akpa and Wallace back I'm starting to think we could have a decent shout at winning this league.

There is a saying that you won't win the title by the end of the year but you can lose it.

It's important that we get 3 good away results at Sheff U,
Swindon and Bury on Jan 1 plus beat Crewe and Scunthorpe at
home.

If we can do that we will be on the way and with players returning from injury who knows what may happen.

It's going to be a tense few weeks that's for sure.
