Maybe it’s because I haven’t been at a live game for so long… but my overriding option of that was that it was a bloody enjoyable game of football!

Should have won it with either Wozza’s effort against the post, or Rodney’s half volley at the end.

Tranmere are no mugs. I think they'll be up there in and around the play-offs. For a 0-0 it was a decent game of football. We could easily have won it but a point was probably the right result just about.

Yes, no mugs but they should be more worried than us. Stats show they had 63% of possession with 10 shots and only 2 on target whereas Vale, with just 37%, had 14 shots with 3 on target and 4 blocked. Sooner or later those chances are going to go in.

No, it was an entertaining game on screen too. We probably edged it but definitely one that could have gone either way.

They knocked it around well it has to be said but were pretty toothless, up against a good back line. We could have passed it a lot better at times and clearly missed Conlon, but we created more and on another day would have scored a couple.

Big game on Tuesday now. 4 points from the first 9 would be the least I would have hoped for from the first three games.

Pretty sure im watching the right game. Too many balls hit to hard, aimlessly and not going near a white shirt.
Out of interest, did you call Brown out about his distribution, as his was 100x worse than covolan?

Once again, thoroughly enjoyed that game. Close, both sides going for it, and we had the better chances.

Pett, Garrity and Walker all played well. Wilson and Rodney looked threatening. Worrall caused them problems. Jones excellent again. Bennings crossing awful for me, and he got caught out of position a few times. Only negative for me

Absolutely brown's distribution wasn't good enough hence why I wasn't to fussed about him leaving. 100x worse is a massive stretch though, and at least with Brown you didn't get flying headers 30 yards from goal.

Good game that, two decent sides I thought (from what I managed to watch) I think we will both be reasonably quite high up. Both a bit toothless though and thought we struggled a bit once Walker went off. Unlucky not to win it with Worrall. Not happy with the club though, disgraceful before the game. This shouldn’t be an issue it was a complete joke.

Early days but would very much like to see a win on Tuesday as the two games after look tricky.

David Worrall produced a great display 2nd half, very unlucky not to score.

Hope the 4th striker who's supposed to be coming in is a "Fox in the box" type, someone who scores 'em of their backside, knee, back of the head etc.

Any one have any news on Jake Taylor.

Give over.

Admittedly I didn’t go today due to a prior engagement, but the facts speak for themselves. Only one shot on target today (ok we hit the woodwork twice) and no goals in two. But I wasn’t expecting much today given its already been announced we’ll be gash for the first 9 games.

Who said, we’d be rubbish for 9 games.?

We missed Tom Conlon today and lacked a playmaker/attacking midfielder. Great to see Wozza back where he belongs. I think we look pretty good. The goals will come.
Brilliant atmosphere and roll on Tuesday! UTV

I m generally encouraged by that performance actually a bit better watching us than I d imagined following some people’s comments vs Northampton.

No really bad performances.... Wilson did ol I thought needs the ball at his feet had our only efforts first half.

Jones was a huge surprise... really good.

it’s going to be difficult to track the changes in formation during games but there’s certainly something there to work with.

Decent game with the sides fairly evenly matched. We probably just about shaded the chances and Wilson + Rodney have to do better with their opportunities. Either side could have come away with a win.

Continually impressed by Jones and Walker. A couple of signings yet to really get going. Proctor lively again in his cameo. Pleased Covolan was reinstated; you back your number 1 and allow them to move on from the mistake.

People can come on P&G and blast fans for being disappointed by the turnstile shambles but it was a proper mess and needs addressing. 2 turnstiles for the Paddock, leading to a queue snaking hundreds deep round and round the car park. 6 in total for the entirety of the Railway Stand + Paddock. The nuts and bolts (tickets, turnstiles, toilets) of the average fan's match day experience still needs work at the club, despite vast improvements elsewhere, as it hasn't really changed.
