Pub quiz question: Peter Gulacsi is the second former Tranmere Rovers keeper to appear in a Champions League semi final, who was the first?

Neither of those were keepers.

Probably Hart.

City have never got to a Champions League semi, so won't be Hart. He did play in Italy tho. So on second thought maybe. Tommy Lawrence or Gordon West.

Tommy Lawrence had the ball kicked out of his hands and the goal stood. I think an indirect was allowed as well. They got robbed in the Cup semi-final circa 65, not champions. Oft forgotten part of their victims theory, although I think they were stitched up then!!

I might be remembering this wrongly, but I think that referree got investigated and it was discovered he had some nice new goods in his house and more money than a ref could earn and was discovered to be throwing several results for immoral gain. I think he may have even been jailed on corruption and bribery charges.

Was sent a retweet today suggesting that Ipswich Town are attempting to offload Tranmere favourite, James Norwood.

The tweet goes on to say the Swindon Town are very interested in signing Nors on a loan deal, however, Ipswich would prefer to sell the player outright.

Looks like the bubble has burst over in East Anglia?

If only we could afford to bring him back to Prenton Park?

It does sound like Norwood's at a critical moment in his career.

Lambert is quoted in the Daily Record as saying:
"I never knew about the Dundee United thing. Could Dundee United afford him anyway? I don’t think so.
James has got to show me what he can do and get back into the team and show what he did at Tranmere.
If he does that, then he’s got another chance here to go and perform the way I know he can."

Ipswich is arguably the best gig he'll ever get in his career. Sounds like it's up to him whether he wants to make a success of it.

From james norwood viewpoint - if i was him there is only one scottish manager i would want to play for and it is not the worst manager in league one - it is micky mellon. paul lambert is a legend in his own bedroom, and i am very surprised he is still manager at ipswich town. if i was a player and had a choice between ipswich town and dundee united, i would pick dundee united every time. ipswich town are a poor team, were as dundee united are looking to qualify for europe etc.

Reported via Twitter that Tranmere has entered the race to sign James Norwood on loan from Ipswich Town.

Surely it's just rubbish as we probably couldn't afford his wages, even if we only paid 50% .

Isn't 50% about £4500 per week? No chance unless Ipswich just want him away and he insists he wants to come here.

Saw that too, but who knows we have a much smaller squad than last season, 4 players less will probably equate to 8k saved and perhaps if ferrier is on his way that might be another 3 or 4 saved although id keep him hes good

Id like to think we can top out the 1.5mil cap in league 2

Also Lambert has publicly said he likes Nors but needs him to regain form and get fit so perhaps a 6 monther here to sharpen up which might suit lambert on perhaps a 75-25% basis

Norwood was rumoured to have left for around £7,000-£8000. If Tranmere could wangle a 40% loan deal, they'd be paying £2,800 - £3,200 a week. Considering the current regime sharpened up the accounts and built up sponsorship and investment, but allowing for the drop in revenue potential caused by relegation, it could be a tall order to get him back.
