Well too far...
Agree Chris but top level players get paid too much theses days to bother carrying on down the pyramid. They prefer Legends games!I think he'd score a bagful in League 1, and would hold the ball up as well.
However, we couldn't afford him and he wouldn't drop down that far, but still!
I was thinking how Tranmere did well previously with ex top flight players, Nevin, Aldo, Liam O'Brien, Gary Stevens...that mixture of big game experience, class, with youth.
Remember we were then two leagues higher. If we did get back up to Championship level, that policy might work, although most Premiership players are foreign and might just go home, to China or USA when no longer good enough. You certainly don't get decent ex-EPL players in Leagues One and Two nowadays.I was thinking how Tranmere did well previously with ex top flight players, Nevin, Aldo, Liam O'Brien, Gary Stevens...that mixture of big game experience, class, with youth.
It is a shame that so few players who’ve played at the top level are seen in the lower leagues later on in their careers, than used to be the case.Remember we were then two leagues higher.

Perkins for me is the one that we need to keep (no chance of Nord, maybe Manny).Much of course will depend on whether we are in L1 or L2 but for me the players we should do our utmost to keep are Nors (not going to happen I know in my heart but if we go up.....) and Manny (homesick?) Sid Nelson was certainly fully into it when we won at FGR - he definitely would be next on the list if he can live with being up north. Pringle frustrated me as should have been so much better but as RLC has already commented his attitude did not fit in so MM will not consider. Pringle - personally I think not good enough as does not make enough of an impact. Mc Cullough would be great to keep but we cannot afford another Wallace situation and sadly his knees seem dodgy so only on a pay as you play deal. Does Miller's contract finish in June? I would be tempted to keep him despite his injury if it does as he offers something different.
Agree with most of them AM but I think that Jay could still provide cover even at L1 level. He always struck me as one of those players who rarely stands out but has a work ethic that means he rarely has a very bad game (providing he remains on the pitch of course!). I'm not sure about Rides; he has played L1 with us before and I don't remember him being shown up - although it's a long time ago now! The feeling is that Micky likes him, so I'd be surprised if he goes and it may be more likely that Zoom departs. Of course, I'd love us to acquire a fantastic left back who is better than both of them! If we don't go up I'd certainly not have any issue with offering both of them contracts.thing is lg 1 if we get there is gonna be a lot harder than lg 2 we have a few players who might be able to make the move up but i can see big steve . dagnall
cant see pringle staying would like sid to dont think much of morris . i get a feeling it could be quite a change this summer we all know nors is gone so we realy need a whole new front line to go with connor
