Who was the minutes silence for??

Sorry I missed it
Hillsborough (29th anniversary tomorrow, apparently)
And that has what to do with Tranmere? :shock:
Pretty obvious really!

to be successful in this league you have to have a recognised striker
Do you?

Macclesfield's top scorer only has 1 goal more than our top scorer and I'm sure they aren't complaining.

Changing the subject, how can the Non-League paper reporter only give yesterday's referee 5/10, ignoring the disappointing result, I thought the referee was excellent. Credit where it's due - 8/10 from me.
Have to agree the ref was good yesterday.

The referee for Gateshead (H) on Tuesday is Adam Penwell.

He’s taken charge of just 6 National League fixtures this season and a handful of Premier League U21s/U23s games.

Adam was the referee at Woking yesterday for their home match against Bromley.

And young Adam is 31 years old, his favourite colour pants is green, he likes wearing red socks and his favourite snack is a cheese sandwich!

Why does the budget always have to be used as an excuse for not competing at the league summit, ref' Macclesfield, prob' one of the smallest squads and budgets, the game is also littered with clubs through history who have achieved beyond there means, burton, Bourmouth Accrington to name a few.
your yardstick should always be your previous season, now considering the very poor standard of this league, and bearing in mind we had the same squad as last season, -a recognised striker, we should of kicked on, but unfortunately we didn't, so we now find ourselves needing to win the next 3 games for 3rd spot.
now the squad GW has assembled is a very good one, but lacking a striker, plus a system the oppo' no how to play against, with a Manager who refuses to change it, also the constant team changes GW makes, hasn't helped, so are we better than last season, I would say no

Bournemouth had the 4th highest budget the year they won The Championship.

I am always intrigued by discussions regarding team budgets. To the best of my knowledge, no team has published their team budget, wage structure, nor any other relevant financial information. Many have said that Macclesfield have one of the smallest budgets. A little research on the Companies House website will suggest that they may have a bit more money available than many suspect, and that the club is being bankrolled much the same as many others (if not to the same extent as some).

Still, its not the size that matters, it’s how you use it :D

Well now the dust and emotion has settled post Tranmere I would just like to add my thoughts. Yes we lacked a cutting edge up front but some of the football was the best we have played for a while and we were (until the first goal) definitely containing a team that are known to score goals. The football was far better and nothing like the dross served up during the Barry Smith era, that is for sure! Everyone has a go at team selection, no Rens but has any one considered the possibility that he may have been ill?
Finally, it was a pleasure to meet some of the Tranmere fans prematch who were genuinely welcoming and others said how unlucky we were to lose post match just a shame as commented earlier that a few of our socially inept fans are so immature that they can't control their language and even use it against one or two in our team -perhaps they could return to the sewer they crawled out of and stay there!
