Away point pleases Thompson

adeltaarabt225321481862.jpg

Inform Adel Taarabt scored his 3rd goal in 4 games for Tranmere

Tranmere Rovers extended their unbeaten to three games on Saturday with a hard fought point away at Northampton after the game finished 2-2 at the Sixfields stadium. The results sees Rovers slip to 5th in the table on 8 points but that won't worry manager Steve Thompson who has to be pleased with how his side have responded since losing to Rotherham in their first home league game.

Tranmere welcomed Irish utility man Marc Wilson back into the starting lineup to replace the injured Johan Elmander meaning a change of formation for Rovers as Thompson opted for a more defensive 5-4-1.

Tranmere started the game on the front foot and their bravery paid almost instant rewards when they took the lead with just 7 minutes on the clock and it came from an unlikely source in the shape of on loan defender Kyle WALKER who's acute shot took a wicked deflection and wrong footed the keeper before hitting the net 0-1. The home side were stunned by that early set back but the home fans needn't have worried as just 8 minutes later they were back on level courtesy of a somewhat fortunate goal by Emboaba OSCAR who's speculative effort was fumbled horrifically into the back of the net by Tranmere keeper Ryzhikov 1-1.

Both teams searched for the goal that would get them the lead but the supporters inside the stadium had to wait till the 58th minute to see another goal and it came from the home side who took the lead for the first time in the game thanks to a scruffy effort from Emboaba OSCAR 2-1. Most Northampton fans were dreaming of the 3 points but their dreams were shattered inside 10 minutes when Tranmere grabbed a deserved equalizer through inform midfielder Adel TAARABT who finished cleverly from the edge of the box after being left unmarked 2-2.

The home side tried in vain to force another goal but Tranmere showed their steel to hold out and claim what could be a valuable point come the end of the season FULL TIME.

After the game a content Steve Thompson gave his reaction to the result.

"It's a decent point in the circumstances and it's what i would have taken before the game kicked off. This will be a tough place to come for any team so to come away with a point must be commended.

It keeps the unbeaten run going and it ensures we remain in the promotion picture and that's all you can ask for at this early stage.

The performance on the whole was pleasing we can do better i know that but we are building towards something special and as long as the players and fans keep believing we can achieve anything we want"

The 7046 Guide

to Season 4’s

Growing Pains!

HSm0kD4LUZU

To accompany you on your ride through the financial stats sit back and

enjoy the dulcet tones of ODB with “Baby I Gotta Your Money”

I know a few of you have been waiting for this so here you go, here’s the squad growth figures for Season 4. The stats are taken at the moment a season starts/finishes as that’s when all the loans are returned, the only way that we can really gauge a true value of a squad. Of course it doesn’t take into account the cash balance of each side meaning that figures will get skewed if someone has just sold a whole load of players and is sitting on the cash waiting to spend. Still, better than nothing I’d say.

Here’s how the teams faired for seasons 4, compared in terms of overall growth (or loss) and then ranked, on the left, with the absolute growth/loss on the far right:

picture60v.png

picture61o.png

Wow, while you may have figured that Carlisle would be near the top, who would have guess that Northampton were top transfer dogs of season 4?! And while the real ‘growth’ at Stockport is perhaps clear for all to see, who’d have guessed that busy old SOP would be one of the 20 teams recording a loss and bottom of the pile? :P

money-ball1.jpg

And here’s the teams ranked according to overall value:

picture62r.png

picture63g.png

All that cash and talent and they still can’t win the league! I could be mistaken here as it’s off the top of my head but I think Middlesbrough are the highest valued original division 2 side, the MK Dons the highest division 3, and Northampton the highest original division 4.

4d4155483486b.jpg

So why can’t they bring home the bacon?!

And lastly, here’s how the teams rose and fell in terms of their rise fall in the growth ranking when compared to season 3’s position:

Meh, take it or leave it for that last one! Anyway, there’s your stats for the week! Try matching that 7777! ;)

Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread

Whats the difference between Aguero Hulk & Pedro

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ6bouLmI7lERpVWSOjfFgyvqmjynQuHWLNB69CQd0PNbuYlO7KJA Aguero showing frustration

Nothing

They all want to leave there clubs

Hulk and Pedro have been causing dissent for weeks at Fulham, calling the manager Baldrick, clueless and a bottle job. Pedro said “He left Arsenal he came to Fulham and look at the club we are going no-where fast, I want to go to a massive club like Man Utd or Man City, Hulk walked into the room swore at Dom called him a goat and pulled out a Man Utd scarf.

Whilst over at Boro, Aguero was scene playing Fifa12 on his playstation vista, saying at least I can get great advice from this. Last week training Jooles was having us play against Seals (I’m sure one was his bird) hes inept and all he does is talk about Man Utd and Fulham, creating stats and parading around like a plumped up turkey. Look at the team, I’m playing with oap’s and no-bodies, I want out said Aguero be it Norwich, Liverpool or Man Utd, I don’t care Boro are going in the wrong direction.

All the reporters looked around shocked, more about Boro than Fulham – at least Boro have won silverware.

Rovers eying Auto spots

59419851grahamwestleyge.jpg

Thompson has no plans for a trip to Wembley this year

Prenton Park is the place to be tomorrow as 5th placed Tranmere welcome 6th placed Shrewsbury in what is sure to be a fascinating match even at this early stage of the season. Both teams enter the game in good form with and with the home side looking to build on their 5-0 win from last time they were on home soil Shrewsbury know they will have to be at their best to stifle a team that have scored 14 goals in just 5 league games.

Tranmere will once again be without the services of last season's top scorer Johan Elmander as he continues to recover from a foot injury and it will be interesting to see how Thompson lines his team up after going with one up front last time out against Northampton. Certain to start the game is inform wing-man Adel Taarabt. The Moroccan international looks to have returned to his best form after a difficult time last season and has 3 goals to his name already in just 4 appearances. Rovers reported no new injury worries from their trip to Northampton so it could be a case of as you where for the home team.

Earlier today Rovers boss Steve Thompson took time out from his sides preparations to discuss the upcoming fixture ....

"The training ground has been a nic place to be just recently the training is intense but the players are loving it and we are really looking forward to getting back in front of our own fans tomorrow and hopefully repeating our last home performance.

Shrewsbury are a good side they are coming to our place off the back of a win and they will want to keep their run going just like us so it's all set up for a cracking match.

Myself and the team are targeting the top two places this season so these are the types of games you need to be winning. Far too often last season we dropped silly points and it ultimately cost us we cannot afford to do that again and i think the players have learnt valuable lessons from last season's disappointment. Only time will tell i suppose but at this moment in time things are going well for the club"

Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread

Rage Against

the Machine!

bWXazVhlyxQ

No Machine, I won’t do what you tell me...

Condemnation was swift and harsh on the streets of Rotherham Monday night following Rotherham’s shock early exit in the first round of the cup. In the wake of the club’s controversial new non-loan policy Rotherham boss Stewart Lauder, real name Machine, has some explaining to do to appease the angry crowds gathering outside of Don Valley. Machine, or “Money Lauderer” as he’s being dubbed in the press (on account of the endless transfer merry-go-round at the club), was unavailable for comment, hidden away in a safe house in nearby Sheffield.

“Totally lacking ambition” was the comment from one irate fan after witnessing his club get dumped out of the English Cup at the hands of a mediocre Birmingham. “We could have won that with a few loan players,” bemoaned another fan. Feeling amongst the supporters was particularly bitter upon hearing the news that had Rotherham won they would have faced an away trip to defending division 1 champions Middlesbrough, one of the greatest prizes in the footballing calendar. The official supporters’ club chairman confirmed that had that happened they would have gone “all out” and would have taken “both cars” to the game.

pa-photos_t_dagenham-and-redbridge-rotherham-playoff-final-wembley-photos-3105v.jpg

Discontent (and boredom – bottom right) is high at the not-so-Merry Millers!

Sadly the loss of cup revenue through the shortsighted loan policy is incalculable, not to mention irretrievable, though it’s fair to say that the loan players would have likely paid for themselves with a few cup wins under their belts. Needless to say hopes are not high for the Shield game against Wolves and with early exits from the cups on the cards (having only previously lost in the first round once ever!) poor decisions in the transfer loan market makes it look like it’s going to be a grim old season for relegation candidates Rotherham.

2758524140-31052010004500.jpg

An artist’s impression of Rotherham fans at Wembley had

a manager with greater ambition been at the helm…

A cursory look at the season 4 growth in squad value at Rotherham more than hints at the possibility that Machine’s attempts to persuade other division 4 managers to forgo loans could be rather self-serving. Indeed, as one of the 3 or 4 fastest growing division 4 clubs in the transfer market it would make perfect sense to try and limit the influx of loan players at other clubs to avoid them readdressing the balance. Was the real reason that the club was “4 million in debt” due to the 3 loan players they had, or instead could it be due to the increase in squad value (and hence wages) by some 30.8M?! In this context the 2.3M spent on loan players really was a drop in the ocean! Moreover, with some 12 new players (6 or them rated 87 or higher) having been brought into the club already this season, does the claim that they are 4 million in debt have any basis given that you can’t sign players when in the red?!!! Sure seems nothing more than an attempt to dupe fellow competitors in the 7046 bottom tier!

rotherhams4gain.jpg

Some good hard 'facts' reveal the true agenda…

For all the cash “Money Lauderer” has filtered through the club, most of it now likely safely squirreled away in some Swiss bank account, and taking into account the so-called gains from the club’s controversial loan policy, the club’s wage bill is still at some 600k. Compared to division 1 giants Middlesbrough who have a wage bill of less than double this, how much value money are the long-suffering Rotherham fans getting for the “spend big, no loan, no success policy”? Well despite all of the riches squandered Rotherham have just 1 player rated 88 or higher, compared to Boro’s 27, a policy at Boro born through borrowing players when they too were in the little leagues.

hildebrand.jpg

Officials at the Swiss National Bank were unwilling to neither

confirm nor deny the extent of Lauderer’s illict activities…

Even the claim that, “The ironic thing is that if many of the players who are loaned out were not loaned out they would develop concerns and might then ultimately be available to other clubs on a permanent basis” holds little water given that these clubs could just trade the players between themselves to offset the concerns. Yes, the self-serving call to forgo loans should really be clear now for all to see. It is really no wonder that few managers have jumped to his call, preferring instead a decent cup run and league success that a carefully managed loan policy can achieve. “Controversial stuff” indeed Mr Machine. It’s no wonder the Rotherham fans are so irate!

Rotherham fans the Arctic Monkeys are not impressed.

“Fake tales of Don Valley more like” one fan was heard muttering!

FULHAM-hc-BANNER.png

Latouche responds to the Manchester ''B'' manager comments in the press

Latouche was fuming at the blatant attempt to unsettle his star men Hulk and Pedro while Hulk has performed brillantly since his arrival from west ham and is well sort after while pedro has been the star performer for fulham for many seasons so both are cruical to any hopes of success Latouche expects to achieve. Latouche commented on Simon and Middlesbourgh and also gave a stark warning to the ''cocky'' Josh Horne

He is rat that simon is' date=' He thinks he the best manager and so much better than as he has won trophys with being the best team in england and sticking to the same formation over a 150 games. He has harmed his team with some disgraceful signings in the market in which my Fulham fans will never expect to see here let alone at old trafford. Due to his own failings and laziness his team should be all mighty but instead have fallen backwards. I wouldnt rank sop in the top 50 managers and I would personally rank him amongst the worst managers like Hammer at stockport and Stephen at Birmingham. He knows Ive always and will forever be the better manager. As for Middlesbourgh hes in a simliar postion to Simon really his squad is on the decline but the big difference here is that Jooles started a division below and has proven to be a brillant tactian. I dont like both teams but I commend the work done at middlesbourgh to achieve what they have done but as for Simon he will forever go down as the worst manager to grace the premier league and he needs to start looking out for his job as I think the united fans are aware what is happening :) [/quote']

He has also said a few words to his ''cocky'' challenger tonight

I reserved praised this man all the way through his career for his work at norwich and I thought he conducted himself in a respectable manner but after some of the ridicolous comments he said on my short rein at Arsenal then I got it wrong. I personally think he is trying to get some of the spotlight on himself as despite his big move to arsenal he is overshadowed by myself ' date=' Jooles , and the rat. So I dont blame him for attacking my rein ahead of our game he wanted to attract attention at my expense. As for game tonight he thinks this will be a walkover and we should be running scared but we have taken on the best and beaten them so we don't fear anyone we will go there full of confidence that we can pull of shock result and keep our impressive form going. This will be cracker and whatever the result I do wish Jozua luck for the rest of the season and my respect for him will forever remain untouched [/quote']

FULHAM-hc-BANNER.png

Was Hulk in Manchester?

Latouche responds to Simon's Accusation that Hulk was in Manchester last weekend training with the team without Fulham's permission.

What a load of rubbish that is ' date='Hulk has assured me that picture was taken a while back when he was playing at that tinpot club West ham. Simon is using desperate measures to unsettle me enough to sell him my star forward as he knows his forwards are no match on hulk's abilty. Unfortuneatly for him that I really dont like him so I wouldnt sell him a cold let alone one of my prized possessions and Hulk is very happy here and will continue to perform like he has done. We as a football club will not be bullyed into selling our best players and we find this all rather amusing [/quote']

Hulk went on to shed some light on why he is unhappy Hulk said "picture the scene, whilst at training (if you can call Dom's methods training) he said to me all I want you to do today is lay down on this bed. Dom proceeded to sit next to me and then started to sing the following:-

Harman Hits Back After Inzaghi Out Burst

Wayne Harman hit back at Filippo Inzaghi this afternoon after the striker took a parting shot at former club Accrington Stanley. In an interview with 7046.com Harman revealed, " Filippo was a top player in his day, but at 38 years of age i think the time has come for him to move on.

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQJpNr_TYQSigRLupnXv-1cppZH4Pm8p7rW0O_bHztjbIvzG4nD

Inzaghi relaxing during training last week

Harman later went on to say that he thought the comments made by Inzaghi were out of pure fustration at being shipped out of the club during good times. " I took control of this club because the chairmans ambitions match my own, we are looking to gain promotion and move forward as a football club".

It still remains to be seen weather Accrington can challange for promotion this season but Harman was clearly confident, " There will be a few new faces arriving over the next week or so to strenghten on the squad we already have, and im pretty sure come the end of the season we will be right up there".

It is thought that one of Harmans number one targets will be Wilfred Bony, from Portsmouth, although weather or not he can come up with the cash for the pacey 23 year old is another matter.

media.jpg?303227

Wilfred Bony

Asked what he thought about the 23 year old former Vitesse front man he replied, " Wilfred is a top player and someone i have been watching for a long time. I can confirm that the club are in talks with portsmouth over a possible move, and an official offer has been lodged".

With a few players having gone out already since Harmans arrival it is thought he has cash to spend. Asked if he had any more transfer plans Harman's reply was simple, " Watch this space!"

Quick update,

The offer for Wilfried BONY of Portsmouth from Accrington Stanley has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours...

Also,

The offer for Mame DIOUF of Manchester United from Accrington Stanley has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Eden Hazard want a move to Preston

Everybody know how much do Van Gaal love Eden Hazard and told to his boss to do absolutely everything to get him.Eden Hazard is the most wanted playere by Preston and this time is their chance to get him.Preston is ready to start to negociate with Dan.Eden want a move to Preston because he know there is his place along with Van gaal and would be brilliant for him to make it at Preston.Eden was in last weeks in Preston to talk with Van Gaal about a possibly move without the accord of Liverpool but now both clubs are ready to get a deal done for Eden,especially because Eden want a move to Preston because everybody know he'll be treated like 10x Messi there.Deepdale will be full just to see Eden shirt.If Eden will come to Preston we must to put at least 20,000 more seats on Deepdale because whole Preston town(including 1 month kids) will come to see the best player in the world in action,Eden Hazard.At the moment the managers dont want to say something about this possibility but we all know Preston is having the biggest chances for Eden because we all know why.Eden wants to Preston,Preston wants Eden.Hazard will be a hazard to any defence in Division 2 and he's a brilliant player.Would be a pleasure to see the best player in the world in action,in Preston shirt,on Deepdale with Van Gaal telling him what to do.Eden would be free at Preston and can do whatever he wants,he'll be the new capitano,he'll be an example,he'll be everything.If Eden will come when we'll say Preston in next 100 years we'll say Eden Hazard.

1.png

Eden in action for Liverpool

If this is true and Eden have chances to come at Preston probably a half of england will come to Preston,on Deepdale just to see the best player in the world.Preston fans are exicited by this but they hope its true and Preston is in negociate with Dan for Eden.

DIVISION 4 REVIEW-MATCHDAY 6-PT1

Rage Against

the Machine!

bWXazVhlyxQ

No Machine' date=' I won’t do what you tell me...[/size']

Condemnation was swift and harsh on the streets of Rotherham Monday night following Rotherham’s shock early exit in the first round of the cup. In the wake of the club’s controversial new non-loan policy Rotherham boss Stewart Lauder, real name Machine, has some explaining to do to appease the angry crowds gathering outside of Don Valley. Machine, or “Money Lauderer” as he’s being dubbed in the press (on account of the endless transfer merry-go-round at the club), was unavailable for comment, hidden away in a safe house in nearby Sheffield.

“Totally lacking ambition” was the comment from one irate fan after witnessing his club get dumped out of the English Cup at the hands of a mediocre Birmingham. “We could have won that with a few loan players,” bemoaned another fan. Feeling amongst the supporters was particularly bitter upon hearing the news that had Rotherham won they would have faced an away trip to defending division 1 champions Middlesbrough, one of the greatest prizes in the footballing calendar. The official supporters’ club chairman confirmed that had that happened they would have gone “all out” and would have taken “both cars” to the game.

pa-photos_t_dagenham-and-redbridge-rotherham-playoff-final-wembley-photos-3105v.jpg

Discontent (and boredom – bottom right) is high at the not-so-Merry Millers!

Sadly the loss of cup revenue through the shortsighted loan policy is incalculable, not to mention irretrievable, though it’s fair to say that the loan players would have likely paid for themselves with a few cup wins under their belts. Needless to say hopes are not high for the Shield game against Wolves and with early exits from the cups on the cards (having only previously lost in the first round once ever!) poor decisions in the transfer loan market makes it look like it’s going to be a grim old season for relegation candidates Rotherham.

An artist’s impression of Rotherham fans at Wembley had

a manager with greater ambition been at the helm…

A cursory look at the season 4 growth in squad value at Rotherham more than hints at the possibility that Machine’s attempts to persuade other division 4 managers to forgo loans could be rather self-serving. Indeed, as one of the 3 or 4 fastest growing division 4 clubs in the transfer market it would make perfect sense to try and limit the influx of loan players at other clubs to avoid them readdressing the balance. Was the real reason that the club was “4 million in debt” due to the 3 loan players they had, or instead could it be due to the increase in squad value (and hence wages) by some 30.8M?! In this context the 2.3M spent on loan players really was a drop in the ocean! Moreover, with some 12 new players (6 or them rated 87 or higher) having been brought into the club already this season, does the claim that they are 4 million in debt have any basis given that you can’t sign players when in the red?!!! Sure seems nothing more than an attempt to dupe fellow competitors in the 7046 bottom tier!

rotherhams4gain.jpg

Some good hard 'facts' reveal the true agenda…

For all the cash “Money Lauderer” has filtered through the club, most of it now likely safely squirreled away in some Swiss bank account, and taking into account the so-called gains from the club’s controversial loan policy, the club’s wage bill is still at some 600k. Compared to division 1 giants Middlesbrough who have a wage bill of less than double this, how much value money are the long-suffering Rotherham fans getting for the “spend big, no loan, no success policy”? Well despite all of the riches squandered Rotherham have just 1 player rated 88 or higher, compared to Boro’s 27, a policy at Boro born through borrowing players when they too were in the little leagues.

hildebrand.jpg

Officials at the Swiss National Bank were unwilling to neither

confirm nor deny the extent of Lauderer’s illict activities…

Even the claim that, “The ironic thing is that if many of the players who are loaned out were not loaned out they would develop concerns and might then ultimately be available to other clubs on a permanent basis” holds little water given that these clubs could just trade the players between themselves to offset the concerns. Yes, the self-serving call to forgo loans should really be clear now for all to see. It is really no wonder that few managers have jumped to his call, preferring instead a decent cup run and league success that a carefully managed loan policy can achieve. “Controversial stuff” indeed Mr Machine. It’s no wonder the Rotherham fans are so irate!

Rotherham fans the Arctic Monkeys are not impressed.

“Fake tales of Don Valley more like” one fan was heard muttering!

A STUDY IN IGNORANCE

Rotherham boss Machine today responded to an anonymous article (above) that appeared in the press earlier this week.

He stated that the sensationalist piece, widely-rumoured to have been commissioned by Middlesbrough loan-racket boss big Paulie "Jooles" Cicero and his crew, was so riddled with errors and lies that it has taken until now before he could read the "article" without laughing.

goodfellasn.jpg

The 7046 loan-racket crew - l>r:Henry "Ben" Hill, Jimmy "SOP" Conway, big Paulie "Jooles" Cicero, & Tommy "Dan" DeVito

We asked for the dynamic young manager's thoughts on the key allegations made against Rotherham United:

Machine, or “Money Lauderer” as he’s being dubbed in the press (on account of the endless transfer merry-go-round at the club)

"This is nonsense, like any club we look to strengthen during the close season and currently have just 12 from 40 players transfer-banned.

Far more likely to find money-laundering going on at loan-racket Crew-members Spurs and Manchester United who both have more players than us transfer-banned - especially Manchester United who have 23 players currently transfer-banned!"

“Totally lacking ambition”

"Less than a year ago I took over a Rotherham team that was £700k in debt and was suffering from a long period of mismanagement that started with the tenure of one Jimmy "self-inflicted" Winston - himself a known associate of the Lo-Rack Crew - but better known these days as the Lo-Rack Crew's "spiritual advisor" Father Hugh Latimer.

l.jpg

Hugh Latimer - the destroyer of Rotherham

Since then I have built Rotherham up to have a 1st XI of average age 24 average rating 87, a 1st team squad of average age 22 average rating 85, and a D4 squad value second only to Northampton's huge side.

The real Rotherham fans, i.e. those who haven't been paid to offer soundbites, appreciate what we're trying to do at the club and know that promotion is far more important than a Cup or Shield run.

And let's not forget, we were drawing 3-3 with a Birmingham side two divisions above us and it was only when I withdrew our three best players to keep them fresh for the league that we lost two late goals."

it’s fair to say that the loan players would have likely paid for themselves with a few cup wins under their belts.

"Our average gates are 4,851 which nets us around £280k per game.

If we made the Semi-Finals of both the Cup AND Shield, and were somehow fortunate enough to be drawn at home for all six Cup and Shield games, then even allowing for bigger gates then at around £350k a time that still only brings in just over £2m - which is less than we spent on loan players last year, so to say loan players would pay for themselves is fanciful in the extreme."

it look like it’s going to be a grim old season for relegation candidates Rotherham.

"Relegation candidates! We're in Division 4!

For me this just sums up everything you need to know about the ignorance of the individual who crayoned this story - it reeks of the Lo-Rack Crew commenting from their ivory towers about a Division that they clearly know nothing about - and why would they?!

As long as they get their cash from the teams beneath them they don't give a fig about what goes on beyond Division 1."

Machine’s attempts to persuade other division 4 managers to forgo loans could be rather self-serving.

"What's self-serving about trying to save my rivals millions in pointless wages and consequently giving Rotherham more competition in the transfer market?

At best our Division 4 rivals will have three 88 rated players on loan and our average 1st XI is 87, so believe me when I say that we have nothing to fear from anyone in Division 4.

No, only the Lo-Rack Crew have a genuine interest in keeping the loan market protection racket going as it saves them £20m a season in wages."

with some 12 new players (6 or them rated 87 or higher) having been brought into the club already this season, does the claim that they are 4 million in debt have any basis given that you can’t sign players when in the red?!!!

"And yet more lazy, sloppy reporting - unlike the Lo-Rack Crew our accounts are entirely open and transparent.

We were - note the past tense there - £4m in debt at the end of last season, but it should be clear for all to see that at the start of this season we sold Costa, Yepes, and Brighi for over £20m which gave us the funds needed to bring in the new guys.

Of the six players brought in rated 87 or higher, four were full player exchanges so only two actually cost any cash - Martin Demichelis for £4.6m who our Chairman now values at £7m, and Michael Pereira for £5.4m who is now valued at £7.1m - so you'll understand that I am perfectly happy with how the club's finances have been managed."

how much value money are the long-suffering Rotherham fans getting for the “spend big, no loan, no success policy”? Well despite all of the riches squandered Rotherham have just 1 player rated 88 or higher, compared to Boro’s 27

"I'm happy the writer chose to compare us with Middlesbrough as they are where we want to be in a few seasons time.

Unfortunately though I don't think Middlesbrough will still be in Division 1 by that time as they are a team in decline.

With very few exceptions their best players are all the wrong side of 30, so you might expect that they would have some players of note under the age of 25 coming through the ranks to replace them - yet of the twenty-one Middlesbrough players aged 25 or under only three or four would get in the door at Rotherham, such is their lack of quality and/ or potential."

a policy at Boro born through borrowing players when they too were in the little leagues.

"I just about choked on my cornflakes when I read this - blatant fibs as Middlesbrough have only ever been in Division 2 and then Division 1, so to attempt to re-write history to look like they got where they are through hard graft is insulting to every self-respecting reader - paying £32.4m straight cash for Xavi when you're in Division 2 is not the norm for a club in a "little" league...."

Even the claim that, “The ironic thing is that if many of the players who are loaned out were not loaned out they would develop concerns and might then ultimately be available to other clubs on a permanent basis” holds little water given that these clubs could just trade the players between themselves to offset the concerns.

"Well if that's not a clear reference to a Lo-Rack Crew clique then I don't know what is - the message/ threat there is that if the smaller teams don't pay the wages for the Crew then they'll trade between themselves to deny the smaller teams the chance to own them!

If that's not a wake-up call for every team not part of the Lo-Rack Crew to immediately send back their loan players then frankly they deserve to be referred to as a "loan-drone" club.

I would suggest the SMFA intervene, but as we all know the Lo-Rack crew have the SMFA on their payroll."

BCO1478.jpg

Why have the SMFA not taken action against the Lo-Rack Crew?

It’s no wonder the Rotherham fans are so irate!

"This is shameless Lo-Rack propoganda - the Rotherham fans know what I'm trying to build here and they know that it'll take time.

They also know that unlike some managers in 7046, I have integrity and will not stay quiet wherever or whenever I see people trying to take advantage of the little guys."

Mack and Cac connection pleases Thompson

jamiemackieimage3748736.jpg

Scottish international Jamie Mackie has impressed manager Steve Thompson

Tranmere Rovers make one of the longest trips of the season on Saturday when they travel to the coast to tackle 13th placed Brighton at recently built AMEX Stadium. 4th placed Tranmere are the Country's leading scorers with 19 league goals in just 6 games and with them entering the game off the back of a superb performance against Shrewsbury which they won 5-1 Steve Thompson's men will be full of confidence heading into the game.

Rovers are still without the services of last seasons top goalscorer Johan Elmander with the Swede still a week away from a return to action but the 30 year old's absence has been cushioned by the form of several other first team players. The midweek win over Shrewsbury saw Jamie Mackie handed his first start of the season and the Scottish international made an instant impact helping himself to a goal as well as laying on another for strike partner Jeronimo Cacau who has almost stepped up equaling his goal tally from last season already.

With no fresh injury or suspension worries to report it gives Thompson the chance to name the same starting eleven that destroyed Shrewsbury and give all the players a chance to continue their good form.

Before his side set off for the long trip South Steve Thompson gave his thoughts on Brighton ....

"Brighton are a dangerous side and one we are not taking lightly. They were relegated into this division and were considered to be in with a good chance of going straight back up but they have found the going tougher than expected so far. They have a good manager in Mark Preston and a decent team so i think it's only a matter of time before they click and begin their climb up the table but hopefully that comes after our game tomorrow.

Getting on to ourselves i have to say things have been going well. We look good in front of goal it's nice to have a few different scorers on the sheet already and it gives me the confidence to turn to these guys whenever they are needed. Jamie Mackie and Jeronimo Cacau have been two that spring to mind. Jamie came into the side in midweek for his first start and scored you can't ask much more from the lad he has mad the absence of Elmander minimal as has Jero (Cacau) who has 3 goals to his name already that's equal to what he scored from 18 appearances last season. Don't get me wrong having Johan back will be massive for us but others are showing that we can get by and that can only be a good thing.

I'm expecting an extremely difficult game tomorrow their crowed will be wanting a result but i have confidence in my lads to go out and get a positive result. A point away at Brighton might not be so bad but rest assured we are going their looking for all three and more goals to add to the confidence"

Messi states - Only 4 'real' title contenders

Yesterday afternoon Charlotte Jackson from the Sky Sports News team managed to talk to the worlds best player, Messi during training..

?type=display

Charlotte Jackson presents..

With the season shaping up to be a cracker, in your personal opinion, which teams do you think have a chance of winning the Div 1 title?

Well, that's a tough one to start off. Looking at the start some of the top teams have had, I would like to say there are only 4 'real' title contenders. I have to believe Man City will be one of those teams (he smiled). Man United and Wolves will definitely be up there battling at the top, at the end of the season. The last team who I think are a 'real' title contender is Liverpool.

Over the past few days, Man City has been strongly linked with a move for Aguero, what are your thoughts on this?

I would love to play with Aguero. I have known him for a long time and we get along really well - it would honestly be great to see City buy him. However, the Middlebrough manager, I think his name is fools, has a big price tag on Aguero, therefore it will probably be better if City could bring in a much cheaper option. All I can say is, it sucks to be Aguero stuck at the riverside aha.

Last question for you Messi, and then we will let you train in peace. Which team do you hate the most?

Hmm.. tough question. If I had to choose, it would probably Sheffield United. You were probably expecting me to say Man United, however their manager SOP is actually a nice guy. On the other hand, Sheffield manager's Elton - thats his name right? is an epic failure as his team is packed full of players I despise. I hate that fail of a player Banega.. he's a disgrace to the Argentinian nationality, total embarrassment.. and then you have Kjaer and Johnson - my word they are rubbish! Even Sheldon can play better than them, and that's saying something.

Thank you for your time!

Only one Messi.

Thompson - Poor start cost us dear

westleyc.jpg

Tranmere boss Steve Thompson slammed his teams concentration after defeat to Brighton

Tranmere Rovers supporters left the Coast in a disappointing mood after watching their side comfortably beaten 2-0 by mid-table Brighton. The result see's Rovers slip to 5th in the division 4 table something of a major let off considering how congested the top half of the table has become.

Steve Thompson named the same starting XI that beat Shrewsbury Town in midweek meaning Jamie Mackie and Jeronimo Cacu were given another chance to shine after their heroics against the Shrews.

6.619 were inside the Amex at kick off and with a minute the majority were on their feet when Brighton took the lead thanks to a wonderful 15 yard effort from Spanish defender Juan CALA who showed lightning pace to get away from the visiting defense before unleashing his effort 1-0. That goal meant that Tranmere had to immediately rip up their pre match tactics and within a few minutes they were nearly back on level terms when Jamie Mackie tried his luck from 25 yards but the Scot saw his dipping effort come crashing back off the crossbar much to the relief of the home faithful.

Tranmere were desperate to get back on level terms but Brighton remained defiant and stifled any attack which came their way and the next clear chance nearly extended the host lead but Seagulls captain Lazaros Christodoulopoulos saw his crisp effort come back off the far post.

Chances continued to be created by both sides and just before half time Rovers wasted a golden opportunity to go into the break all square when the ball fell to an unmarked Jamie Mackie inside the Brighton box but the Scot somehow fired his effort wide with the goal at his mercy. HALF TIME.

Tranmere Boss Steve Thompson would have been hoping for his side to convert their chances into goals but within a minute of the second half their hopes of a comeback were servery dented when the host made it 2-0 thanks a marauding run and finish from Chilean international striker Humberto SUAZO a real set back for Thompson's men. That goal really knocked the stuffing out of Tranmere who struggled to create any clear cut chances and that enabled Brighton to see out the rest of the game with relative ease and with that claim the 3 points which see's them hit 9th spot in the division. FULL TIME 2-0.

After the full time whistle a frustrated Steve Thompson gave his assessment of the result and performance.

"It's been a frustrating evening for all concerned with Tranmere and it's a result that i am far from happy with. The remit to the players before kick off was to keep the crowed quiet early on and get them frustrated so to go and concede straight from kick off was bitterly disappointing and i made the players aware of that at he break.

I am not sure if they had their fingers in their ear at half time but they certainly didn't listen and to be 2-0 on 46 minutes we looked dead and buried and our performance in the second half was the worst so far this season. It was toothless and effortless and that's not something i am particular proud of.

A poor start to both halves has cost us hopefully the players will learn from this and start games stronger than they have tonight.

We need to erase this game from our memory and move on. Brighton showed tonight that they can be a force as i said pre match and i expect them to push on now but we need to brush ourselves down and go again. We have a cup game against Leicester on Monday which i will make changes for then we entertain Leyton Orient on Wednesday where we will be looking to get back on track"

LATIMER LOOKS TO LIVERPOOL

graham_gooch.jpgGraham Gooch Writes...Ahead of tonight’s first round Shield clash at Glanford Park, Scuns boss Hugh Latimer went on the record today to pay tribute to Liverpool manager Dan Malone, describing the young Scotsman as a ' paragon of footballing virtue' in early morning prayers from Shorpe Cathedral. The sermon marks a return to the spotlight for Latimer after his traditional 2 week long period of reflective fasting and flagellation to mark the festival of Absolom the vengeful. The festival lies at the heart of faith based football community and commemorates the cautionary tale of Absolom the blacksmith who upon returning home after a day toiling in front of the furnace in ancient Judea, found his wife in bed with his brother Zebulun. Overcome with rage, the furious Absolom dragged Zebulun downstairs to his workshop where he placed his terrified brothers manhood in a vice. After securing it tightly in place and removing the vices handle he picked up a hacksaw and as Zebulun begged him not to cut it off , Absolom replied '' no brother, you are ,as I'm going to set the workshop on fire." Clearly spiritually refreshed, it was an almost chirpy Latimer who took to the Glanford park pulpit this morning and intoned ..

'' Dear Lord, we beseech you to turn your magnificent gaze down upon us unclean and unworthy sinners as we look forward to the visit to this your stadium from our good friend brother Daniel and his wonderful Liverpool squad. Truly Lord your grace and favour runs deep within the paragon of footballing virtue that is Daniel Malone. And we his brothers in the crusade against the dark one give thanks and prayers for his continued success as he fights your good fight against the devils formation at your most sacred top table. Let us once more give praise for his generosity in loaning us young Nedum Onuoha, who after just a short while is already showing the signs of shedding his dark clock of sin and becoming a firm favourite of the Glanford road flock. Despite our joy at Daniel's visit, be assured Lord we intend to take the game to the Scousers tonight and in what will be a welcome distraction from the hard fought league campaign we feel, that with your blessing, we have a great chance of causing an upset. Regardless of the result we are prayerful of a entertaining game in which both teams adhere to your scriptures...Amen''.

Hugh-Latimer-2-1.jpg

A refreshed Hugh Latimer

In what is already shaping up to be yet another unremarkable season at Glanford Park, the 15th placed Scuns go to the game on the back of the weekends 2-1 defeat at the hands of early title favourites Southampton. In an evenly balanced affair the Scuns made the worse possible start when centerhalf Khalid Boulahrouz evaded the attentions of Peer Kluge to tap home with barely 7 minutes on the St Mary’s Stadium clock. Despite sharing much of the play the visitors struggled to break the the saints resolve and paid the price ten minutes before half time when a sudden counter attack saw the free scoring Mohammed Abdellaoue make it 8 goals in 7 games, after side stepping the abandoned Seb Frey in the Shorpe goal. The second half carried on in much the same fashion, as aside from an early Pennant effort the Scuns failed to show any real sign of breaking down the disciplined Southampton. At the other end both Abdellaoue and Nicolas Gaitan went close before two minutes from time the Scuns finally gave their 27 travelling supporters something to cheer about as substitute Roland Lamah toe-poked home to make the final score 2-1.

Thompson - Repeat performance would be nice

johanelmander6.jpg

Tranmere top scorer Johan Elmander could make a return to action tomorrow

Tranmere Rovers return to league action tomorrow when they welcome manager-less Leyton Orient to Prenton Park. After defeat in the league to Brighton at the weekend Thompson sent out a youthful side for last nights shield game at home to division 3 side Leicester and Rovers turned on the style to dispatch their lofty opponents and set up a mouthwatering tie against division 1 giants Chelsea.

One of the scorers from last night victory Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has really set the tongs wagging amongst the Tranmere faithful with his all action display. The 18 year old winger made his first appearance since joining the club on a season long loan from Tottenham and it looks likely that the England u21 international may have worked his way into manager Steve Thompson's first team plans.

Tranmere boss Steve Thompson will have one major decision to make with top scorer Johan Elmander edging closer to fitness. The big Swede is back in training following his foot injury which has seen him miss the last three games and after scoring a hatrick in his last appearance Elmander will be chomping at the bit to pick up where he left off.

The visitors Leyton Orient will not be relishing the long tip North to face Rovers. Prenton Park does not hold fond memories for O's fans who saw their side fall to their worst ever defeat in 7046 when they were crushed by a staggering 11-0 scoreline. The return fixture at the Matchroom Stadium saw Rovers run out 4-1 winners meaning Tranmere have scored an amazing 15 goals against Orient in just two fixtures.

Earlier today Rovers boss Steve Thompson spoke to the press to discuss the orient fixture....

"Last night's win and performance was the perfect tonic after the defeat at the weekend and we are all looking forward to tomorrows game against Orient. Not many expected us to come out of last nights game with a win especially after making 10 changes but it was a magnificent performance and all the young lads can be proud of taking their part. they have given me food for thought and it's nice to know they can be called upon to do a job.

There is a chance that Johan Elmander could be fit to feature at some point tomorrow although i wouldn't like to say 100% it would be nice to have him back his goals will be vital to our season and having a player like him fir certainly makes the job easier i can tell you.

I know Orient will not be an easy nut to crack a repeat performance of last season's game would be nice but i am expecting things to be a lot tougher this time round. They have draw all their away games so far and if they could win their home games they could do well this season"
