there is actually two police officers been charged. the male police officer has been charged with taser murder and the female officer has been charged with grevious bodily harm with intent. neither officer has been identified and the woman officer has been released on bail. I just think it is a sad situation. dalian Atkinson was the reason we lost to aston villa - he scored in both games and also in the penalty shoot out. also the timing of both his goals was crucial- at prenton park he scored in the 91st minute and at villa park he scored in the 89th minute.

It turned out that Dalian's very late goal cost Tranmere a Wembley final!

Atkinsons last gasp goal in the first leg should not have happened, Kenny Irons did not foul Andy Townsend in the build up to the goal, but the ref thought differently, and as we all know we were again cheated in the second leg when Bosnich should have been red carded...With those 2 legs being 11 days apart, I flew back from HK for both legs, returning to HK the day after the second leg...I will never forget the feeling of being totally gutted after we lost on pens in that game at Villa Park and when exiting the ground, one of the Villa stewards was grinning from ear to ear like a Cheshire Cat and gloating like hell, I came within an inch of chinning the b*stard but I held back..looking back, I wish I had smacked him one!..will never forget the car journey back up the M6 after the game, not a single word spoken between the 4 of us for the entire journey back, the car was like a morgue...
