A 12 o'clock kick-off always seems to be more of palaver. I don't like finding my seat just as the whistle goes. I like to arrive so I have at least an hour mooching about beforehand. And then find my seat just as the game kicks off. There is actually a difference, even though I'm still only just making the start of the game/the missing the first five minutes. If were a 3pm kick-off, it wouldn't be encroaching Friday night plans. You can probably bet your last dollar, there will be at least an hour faffing around before setting off. If someone were to say to me, "I'll pick you up at 8", I'd be good to go. I wouldn't have a to-do list of so-called "important" things, like drop off a kid, or having to wait in for forty minutes until the missus gets back because she's waiting for a washing machine repair man (or some other bunkum) That's just bad away day etiquette. Shave your bloody balls the night before! Shave 'em in the car, if you really have to. Just be bloody ready!

I will be able to watch this live on Sunday, and at a respectable hour too..if this was a pools panel result then I am afraid i would have to say Home Win, but saying that, are Coventry at their real home lol...Mind you, if the Coventry defence are as generous as what they were at Rotherham last weekend, then we have a chance..all 4 of those goals were, laugh a minute and the 4th goal was Pure Comedy..

He's their lucky charm. They never lose when he's in charge (until late last season) and he regularly dishes out red cards to their opponents. He also disallowed a perfectly good Notts County goal when Cov beat them in the playoffs and allowed a dubious Cov goal in the same game.

Their luck with him has to change soon!

I am not sure how many Tranmere rovers fans have got a good memory - but if you remember quite a few years ago we wanted to sign the Coventry city manager mark robbins while he was so called in his prime. but the big headed ******** said he would only sign for us if we gave him a goal bonus payment for every goal he scored. who the hell does he think he is. quite rightly we never went ahead with the transfer. we need to put him in his place on sunday.

What the heck is baldy on. Strikers are entitled to ask for goal bonuses, the same as midfielders and they are both entitled to ask for assist bonuses, just like goalkeepers are entitled to ask for clean sheet bonuses.

If the guy had asked for his car insurance and phone bills to be paid, then he would have been a cheeky sod, but he wasn't asking for something unreasonable. It's standard practice on almost all playing contracts these days.



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

Wasnt there a Coventry player that Ronnie Moore tried to sign for us a few years back that refused to come unless we bought him a house and other daft things? Transfer collapsed and he never amounted to much anyway?

Agree totally!
Speaking to a mate of mine who goes to all Rotherham's games - he said Coventry were very poor last week (Rotherham hammered them 4-0) so we may have a chance here.
Despite his 2 mistakes (penno against Burton and that throw in on Tuesday) Borthwick Jackson I think is also very good - he can just glide past opposition players and can deliver a good cross. Reminds me of Clarkey on the right 2 seasons back.

Isn't that about all we've got particularly if Banks can't play . If Mullin's is replaced by H M , he will have to put a shift in to replace Mullins chasing down if one paced and defending at corners .I'll take a draw and hope Southend and Wimbledon draw .

bad injury list for Rovers, plus suspensions and international call ups going into the Coventry game..i see that there are a couple of league 1 games and one league 2 game that are off today coz of international call ups, and the Kidderminster v Farsley game in the NLN is off too coz Kiddy have 3 players on international duty.

Think we have done ok in that first half, Coventry look a very good passing side and they pass it around well with good movement but we have coped quite well with them..CBT coming down the left seems as though he could cause a few probs and we should try and get him into the game a bit more in the 2nd half.. Hopefully Mullin going off isn't too serious.

Not so much a critique but an honest observation: we look outclassed. Seems like we have no plan with the ball in midfield beyond panicking into a turnover. No one can honestly think Davies kicking it long is going to work, we wont score with that strategy if this game lasts a year. We are lacking creativity and it seems like we have no intention to play on their side of the pitch. I dont get a chance to physically watch too many games but if they all look like this I worry about staying up.

SWA heard loud and clear, however...keep it up!

We absolutely have a plan to make it difficult and frustrate an excellent footballing side. Going long to Payne is no issue at all, his partner just needs to get closer along with either Morris or CBT, hes won every ball in te air, think hes been excellent so far.

Disagree. Setting up to be hard to beat and frustrating the opposition is part of the game. It's a valid tactic away from home especially. Doing this successfully is playing well, not badly.

Smash and grab maybe but that's what away wins with a makeshift team against bigger opponents look like.

Great organisation, work rate and spirit compensated for missing the spine of the team. Enormous result, rode our luck a bit to weather the 20 minute storm but our reward was fully earned.

A team that we’re technically better than us, looked more threatening and played some good football, just got absolutely sh*t housed!

Well done lads, CBTs goal was a thing of beauty. I didn’t think we were good in any part of the park, the defence were beaten 4/5 times and it was only our good luck that kept us in it.

We definitely looked short in the midfield, not a lot of creativity or options to change the play and our forwards continue to drop too deep to stand a chance to affect the game.

A tough win, with a lot of negatives but the major positive of 3 points. I celebrated by doing some washing up.

Not a vintage performance by any stretch of the imagination, but a huge three points all the same. What a moment too for CBT kid from Villa scoring the winner away at St. Andrews ,admittedly not for Villa and not against Birmingham but still! Thought he was excellent today along with Payne. Special mention too for the fans over 800 there isnt bad at all but they made a great din throughout I thought, sounded like a home game at times.

Talk about chasing your blues away; that's the kind of CBT that'll help you look your demons in the eye and knock them out! (Make that available on the health service!). Absolute top class finish and we should all be bouncin' with the three points, regardless of circumstances (I know I am!). Perspective: Coventry could have gone joint second (sounds better than third!) with a win and we were in the bottom three before kick off. It was always going to be a backs to the wall performance, particularly when you add in the missing players. Yes, we may have had some luck on our side, but if anyone thinks we weren't due any is mean-spirited and that's putting it mildly. The table looks sweeter now! Just enjoy!

Not a deserved win, they had several clear chances they should have scored, 5-0 wouldn't have flattered them. However we have to accept that they were a far superior team and we did what we needed to do, we defended well and hoped they couldn't find their shooting boots. We were lucky they didn't score, our goal was well taken though. Sometimes that is what you need to do, accept that they are much better and dig in hoping for a draw or sneaky goal against the run of play. Coventry will be gutted with the number of chances they missed.

Their luck with him has to change soon!
He was also the ref when we won 1-0 at Bradford on a Sunday a few seasons ago when Phil Parkinson lost it big time after Mr. Drysdale did not send Goodison off. That was a bit of a smash and grab though not as much as todays

We looked outclassed for most of the game but credit has to go to the concentration and resilience of the team. They hung in, rode their luck and if only for that deserved to win.
To be fair if we had an away team at PP that played the way that we did we would have many that would have complained about the tactics and the result.
In a season like this I do not care how ugly we win.If we survive it will be a great outcome and a springboard for better.
Defensively, I can see the case for Payne as man of the match but I think that there is a strong case for Caprice. When the defence was being stretched he showed real determination and quality and coming forward also looked our best outlet. He has come on in leaps and bounds since arrival

Definition of a classic smash and grab. Terrible finishing from Coventry cost them but its about time we got a bit of luck this season fantastic finish from Corey Stefan Payne motm for me how on earth he missed the chance at the end il never know but he worked his socks off and won everything

Great finish, even if was against the run of play. The Southend game is an imperitive otherwise the gains made from this result could all be for nothing and Southend are a team Tranmere are expected to compete with, so there has to be a victory otherwise bonus results like the Coventry one will seem like a damp squib.



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

It would be bad manners, in fact complete madness, not to pay homage to the selecter of today's team Mr MM, who took us one step beyond relegation today.
In homage to Coventry's woeful finishing and the weepin' an' a wailin' 'from their fans:

Great result, sometimes you have got to sh!thouse your way to a result. Thought the ref was reasonable today, did well to leave us with 11 on the pitch, you could clearly see him telling RHM, you are 'this close' to going off.
Essential we get something from the Southend game now.

I thought our best away performance this season, so far, was at Rotherham. Yesterday we had nowhere near the fluency but we won. I’d take winning ugly any day of the week. Hopefully the 3 pts will boost the lads confidence on their travels.

Why did Scotty keep punching the ball from crosses after we scored and hand it back to the opposition ? ,Surely catching the ball from crosses was more of a time waster ?

Robins is whingeing like a two year old in the press. Deffo hand ball, deffo sending off for Payne, deffo foul in build up to goal, deffo time wasting by keeper.

And his team deffo didn't score any goals.

You make your own luck and yes we rode it on Sunday. We've had it done to us on occasion and just took it on the chin.

It's the modern way. A ball that moves around much more, crosses coming in with more velocity to take advantage of this and greasy conditions. Better safe than sorry.

And the balls are much lighter than 20 years back, they swerve all over the place these days.

Or maybe not that confident in catching a cross ?? At least he didnt fumble a shot but how many did they have on target ?

I think the Coventry newspaper is making it worse than it was. Robins is a manager whose team had dominated a game but lost-so he won't be happy.

I like a keeper that punches clear provided they get good distance. I don't recall him doing much of this in the past so maybe its something that has been worked on by the coaches. It is all fine and good saying catch the ball, but how many times have we seen him try and catch the ball and present it to a striker in the 18 yard box.

Interesting to see the Coventry forum has been in meltdown since the game.
Yes they lost but they’re a good side and if the roles were reversed I’d be disappointed but not hysterical.

For the record, you could see we were stifling them from the off, dropped off them to allow them to mess around at the back and hit them if we managed to get anything decent going up top. It worked as it has against us in the past.

It should give us an edge in the Southend game too as if they think we’ll play like that then they’re going to have a torrid time under the lights!

I don't know what they're whining for, they had more than enough chances to win the game comfortably. Looked a very good side to me, and I haven't seen us so comprehensively dominated across 90 minutes like that in any other game this season (not Portsmouth, nor Oxford, nor Ipswich).
