    I think it is about 1,600 generally, but I believe there is scope to increase to 2,000 plus now that the front rows of the Cowshed Stand have been repaired. Somebody might correct me on this though. I take it you expect to sell out in November ?

    MK Dons looked pretty average against us. Very good for fifteen minutes until we sussed them out tactically and then very flat. Lincoln and Mansfield are the best teams we have played so far, in that order. I would guess Exeter will be impressive in a few weeks as well. I would have Lincoln...

    Rovers v Macc

    In fairness to Macclesfield, Durrell, Whitaker, Lloyd (and Whitehead) are the players that made them a good side last season, probably the major reason they won the league. The midfield was their great strength and their strikers were not brilliant even in the division below. So being without...

    Rovers v Macc

    I think we might have won more comfortably if we had played with two strikers. As you say yourself, Macclesfield are not a great team. I am not sure our defensive performance would have been any different in a 442 to a 451. However, anyone who has read anything I have posted knows I am a huge...

    Rovers v Macc

    Buxton hit the post for us as well, and Jennings and Norwood both missed one-on-ones, so I don't think there is any doubt we had the better chances. Macc were well organised but created nothing in open play. However, their number 24, Rose, has got a fantastic left foot and put in some great...

    Rovers v Macc

    Apparently Macc also equal Derby's record of 36 league games without a victory if they fail to win. Quite a few bad omens being racked up ahead of this one.....

    Rovers v Macc

    True, but it is more the magnitude of the games we lost against Macclesfield: the Trophy semi-final, the 4-2 defeat in 2016-17 which knocked us off the top of the National League never to return, and then the 4-1 defeat last season which ended our title hopes. Even in the games where we picked...

    Rovers v Macc

    I thought I would get this one started early. This fixture is the thirteenth of the league season and falls one day before the thirteenth of the month, and sees us face our bogey team of recent years. Add in Macclesfield's winless start to the season, and I am already feeling nervous. More...

    Morecambe V Tranmere

    I thought Morecambe looked a decent side and I could not understand how they had started the season so badly. I can't see them going down on that showing.

    Morecambe V Tranmere

    He is, but I think he got the one big decision (the penalty appeal) right. I was directly in line with play in the seats and the ball was already out before Banks handled it.

    Officially 1,367 Tranmere at Morecambe, plus some more who migrated from the home end.

    Morecambe V Tranmere

    I can never understand why clubs at this level make matches all ticket, when complete sell-outs are so rare. Morecambe have probably done themselves out of 4-5 grand by refusing to sell tickets to away fans on the day. It seems there are quite a few Tranmere fans who did not realise tickets...

    Morecambe V Tranmere

    There is plenty of street parking right outside the ground, albeit it will be a lot busier than our last visit, with 1,300 tickets sold so far. I think it will be a tough game, particularly without Norwood. I think Gilmour deserves to start in midfield but I am not sure how Mullin will cope as...
