Several centuries ago I used to play in the Wallasey Junior League. We had a young lad who's name was Eddie Marlow who, in a game, stubbed his foot in the turf while trying to shoot. He yelled out " me " effing " foot." It was not the done thing in those days for kids to swear on the field and his dad came on the pitch and dragged him off. For some reason the memory has stayed with me and I decided to use his name on the forum. Any story behind your user name.

I went to my first Rovers game in 1992 v Birmingham city we won 4-0 Aldo scored 2 as did Kenny Irons I can't remember who got the other but Johnny Morrisey and pat nevin were our wingers. What a midfield we had then what a team even! Great time to start going the games got me hooked on the rovers. Regarding Morrisey The man flew down the wing, Later on around 97-99 I just remember him having an all year round tan but his mop of hair as he raced down the wing made him my favourite player at the time hence my user name.

Circe 1958 paying 1 old shilling to stand in the front row on the half way line on the former Borough
Road terrace ( getting to the ground an hour before kick off ) and watching the brilliant Tommy
Egglington flying down the wing with the waft of Elleman 's Rub in his wake !

Ditto - first game Tranmere v Barrow October 1969. 5-0 win and I was hooked.
Brought up on the Mill Park Estate, used to get the 41 bus with the old man, from the Rake pub and change at Bromborough Cross for the 28 up to Rock Ferry. Happy days, a long time ago.

picked the screenname of the end-boss of the variant of poker i play

mrGr33n13 was the screen name of dan colman. he was the daddy of the online $1000-$5000 heads up single table tournaments. he could make and break poker careers, lead a cartel of players that had the high stakes tables locked down. was a top trash talker too.

he quit after winning a ridic sum playing live, but he was a legend in the format before solvers took over.

Ken Beamish did his apprenticeship at Victory Kidder and my Grandfather was his foreman. Through that I was able to get all the autographs of the Tranmere team - including, Cumbes, Yardley & Johnny King.
In 1968-69 we played played Chester 4 times in the League Cup. I dont think Ken played in one of the away games - it might have been the 1st game (0-0 at Sealand Road) and I remember being behind the goal in the away end with him and his brother(s?) in front of me. 52 years ago so my guess is he must now be about 70!

Well, since you asked nicely. This is my third login on the site - I kept losing passwords. The first referenced something said to us about Dougie Anderson many years ago by a Scottish player (hence Doogie), the second was also a reference to that same player, but this time to his lack of ability. I drifted around without a login for a while then resurfaced as Doogie's Ghost both because I was back from limbo and his ability to completely disappear during games. Of course, it has a slightly different connotation now, since his death, but the user name predates that. Not as interesting as it could have been, sorry!

Refers to my current residence - exiled from Prenton since 2008. Not strictly accurate though as I'm in south Gloucestershire and no, I haven't adapted FGR as my second team!
First game was in July 1968 against Liverpool lost 0-3, Watford 1969 lost 0-3 and Luton 1969 lost 0-2. I didn't actually see us win or even score until the opening game of the 69/70 season when we beat Stockport 3-0 and I distinctly remember the late, great George Yardley scoring with a header down at the cowshed end.

After watching a horrific open goal miss, someone shouted ‘George Yardley wouldn’t have missed’, a further shout was ‘George Yardley's cat wouldn’t have missed’. It somehow stuck with me.

Started going to watch Tranmere in 1967. Stood on the Kop originally but infuriatingly, I can't actually remember my first game. I've narrowed it down to a few games on the run in to promotion. Obviously I was a glory seeker! When I transferred to the Paddock in front of the main stand adjacent to the cowsheds, a guy with a booming loud voice used to shout "Every ball's a white ball" at periodic stages throughout the game. Hence the acronym.



Every ball's a white ball

I remember seeing George having a quiet drink in a pub in near Chester in mid/late 80s. I went over and said hello and the man was so humble and down to earth. We spent about ten minutes chatting and said he was genuinely surprised that someone had recognised him. Wonderful man both on and off the pitch. For the life of me though, I can’t remember which pub it was.

May the twelfth 2018 - one of the most agonisingly wonderful football days ever (and there have been a few).

That moment when Conor J crossed for His Lordship to just get his head to it enough for the ball to slip through the keeper's fingers...

...and ripple the net

Went back and watched highlights v Borehamwood yet again.

One day I'm gonna be watching, and the keeper will save the bloody thing after his Nordship's header, it'll go to extra time and penalties, and we'll probably lose.

Naaah, just a covidnightmare....
