It is possible that Miller picks up another yellow card in this match, he could well 'be up for' a bit of eager action and goes too far, which could be in our favour in the long run - same as Chester's player, now out for six games (one of which is against us). Prediction - a draw (but love us to win & make it 4 out of 4 under MM).

It seems like if you slug it out with Dover toe to toe they have the firepower as well as the supply lines to inflict serious damage as Forest Green found out when losing 4-3 there earlier this season (NB FGR have the second best defensive record after us and were that Dover result to be expunged from the records then they have only conceded 7 goals in 16 matches.)

A more cautious approach, a la Gary Brabin, may seem to be the way to go, and try and nick a single goal. It would not surprise me therefore if Mickey overloads the midfield, plays Cook up top on his own and we see a 0-0 played out. I'd take that.

If on the other hand Mickey plays the three man midfield with Almond playing behind a front two we could see something similar to the FGR result there with goals a plenty. Unfortunately with Norwood (and potentially Steve Jennings) missing I fear a 3-1 reverse with that system. (I can talk about multiple scenarios as this isn't the prediction league!)

Having said that if we DO take them on with a three man midfield and come out on top it would give a massive belief to players and fans alike. The one thing that could be in our favour is that it seems like their pitch is very wide. It could give Tollitt the opportunity to put in a man of the match performance laying on two and scoring one in a 3-2 victory. (There, I think that covers all bases!) smiling smiley

Brabin unashamedly playing for a 0-0 draw after my very long train trip and the train cost being virtually double what I paid last year are the two main reasons I will not be going.

I fear that it will take more than one goal for us to win this game and with Norwood out can not see that happening. As I have said in a previous thread our lack of a natural goal scorer could come back and bite us big time. Need the midfield to contribute but have not seen to much of that happening yet! As much as I dislike saying it I think this will be MM first loss, 3-1.

Sorry but no way. Fight fire with fire, you can't go looking for a point if you want out of this league in any game. FGR could quite easily go the rest of the season without dropping a point. The only way out of this hole is go for everything. To even suggest a point in any game is wrong in my opinion.

Do what works the best. Kirby is scoring, cooks capable, so why go defensive, as it's a negative thing to do.

Defensive against a team like that is the way you might expect one of the bottom 4 teams to play not top 4 teams.

Man City wouldn't be defensive against Liverpool very often, so the best thing is to either play attacking football against Dover, or go for a balanced 4-42 style system, but anything involving 5 in the middle or defense, would be potentially like a red rag to a bull if Dover intended to go attacking, as it would look like you have a modicum of fear playing them, that you go defensive and Tranmere should have no reason to fear anyone.



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

Dover supporters to a man claim they cannot defend and both teams will score, they fancy miller against mcnulty but how many times have we heard that so far this season.

I think we need to do what fgr did at aldershot and really try to blitz them straight from kick off

The team new sounds like it is nominally a 4-5-1 set up with Tollitt and Stephenson either side of the three main midfielders Harris, Maynard and Hughes. With the criticism of Stephenson's defending being well noted if not pronounced by the previous regime it sounds like it could even be a 4-3-3 set-up with both Tollitt and Stephenson used to occupy their (attacking) fullbacks rather than defend against them.

It's a surprise to see Jake Kirby omitted from the squad completely but I'm expecting plenty of goals this afternoon. Based on this team selection (one of) my previous comment(s) still stands. 3-2 Tranmere, Tollitt to score one and create the other two in a man of the match performance... smiling smiley

If you can't get Wirral Radio too well but are in the Granada TV region did you know that Radio Merseyside now broadcast on Freeview TV channel 722? Full commentary on today's match from 3pm on there too.

Channels 719, 720, 721 as well as 722 are also used for the remaining NW BBC local stations, Manchester, Lancashire and Cumbria.

Anyone knows what happened with Jake Kirby? Is he injured or is something afoot? No mention of him in the match report on club website... I can't believe he was dropped from the squad in it's entirety so I am suspecting an offer has been received????

All that said a great win today.....

Maybe he had a strop after being substituted on Tuesday? Maybe he had a knock on Tuesday that led to his substitution? Whatever the reason thank you for bringing my quote

Can't see us getting an offer for Kirby. We're unlikely to sell him to another club at this level and can't sell him higher at this point. I suppose a loan with view to transfer deal is an option. I guess a knock or illness was far more likely.

As I am now 53 years a rover, I have learned to always look on the brightside simply because bad times usually lead to good eventually. Micky has demonstrated that the players we have are not as bad as was being made out. We just had a prior manager who didn't know how to get the bed out of them.i was "joshing" πŸ˜‰

A great result and a heartening performance but it is too soon to conclude that this is a good squad that just needed a good manager. It is not uncommon for a team to well when a new manager comes without that revival lasting.Is Eastleigh experiencing that phenomena as the Moore honeymoon no longer looks quite so convincing

Great result and so happy again with the Mickey Magic. My next visit to Footie HQ will be vs Chester so bring it on and cant wait.

Think the reason Tollett is out on loan is to improve his final pass and finish in real match time. We know he has pace and can carry the ball but can he turn this to match winning advantage. He has started to answer that question today. If he produces more like this, we are unlikely to get another bite of the cherry after January.

I went today, and we were good, very very good, Tollitt was a class apart, but should note their 'star' striker was kept quiet by McNulty and Sutton.
The team selection did surprise me a little, with no Kirby / Duggan / Almond. I suspect that MM is using different players / formation depending on who the opposition are with options on the bench. It is difficult to argue for a different line up on the back of a 4-1 victory. Also as an aside Mr & Mrs P were at the game sat in the stand with the fans.

In interviews to date Mickey has made it clear that his philosophy is, if the team has won\played well that the man wearing the shirt keeps the shirt. I wouldn't be at all surprised if today's starting 11 is the starting 11 against Chester in a fortnight's time (roll on, can't wait!) irrespective of anyone regaining fitness between now and then.

Jennings thought he may have been fit today so he is obviously close to a return.
Just got back! We were brilliant after the first 20 minutes. I had feared Miller might get the better of our back four but he did not get a sniff. This result would and could not have happened 4 weeks ago- we were superb and Cookie was brilliant in the air. Tollitt was magnificent a class apart and it has been a long time to see a Rovers player thrill in such a way! Not since the great Johnny Morrissey. If we get the opportunity we should do all in our power to keep him for the rest of the season. He is so good he will take us to promotion!

We might have a chance to keep Tollitt for the season ex rover cook is manager at Portsmouth and like MM is still a rovers fan .he knows he will be looked after by rovers and the national League is a good learning curve and it will definitely toughen him up last year rovers were often bullied out of a game but no one can do it now ,what a bonus if we got the season out of him the best loanee since cassidy,

A great result and a heartening performance but it is too soon to conclude that this is a good squad that just needed a good manager. It is not uncommon for a team to well when a new manager comes without that revival lasting.Is Eastleigh experiencing that phenomena as the Moore honeymoon no longer looks quite so convincing
si what you trying to say that you can't wait till till we faulter

No not at all that is your imterpretation. I was simply saying that it is too soon yet to make judgements about whether the squad was good all along but poorly managed, Read the post and I acknowledge that the result is heartening. Faltering would be disheartening and you dont support Tranmere for more than sixty years without always wanting them to do well.

A great result and a great impact made by Tolitt and Cook gets 2 as well. 4 consecutive wins, plenty of goals scored, only 1 conceded.

The omens look very good and Mellon deserves credit for making a side that had floundered after a fairly impeccable start, then under Carden a progressive recovery into one that looks more than capable of pushing for promotion.

Hopefully things continue in the same vein and the results keep coming.

A quote lifted from the Dover Forum...

"Tranmere were very good and will be up there at the end of the season. And the fat b***** at the back is exactly the kind of player we need. Best defender in the league imo."
