Best and worst – Tranmere

Best and Worst – Tranmere Rovers F.C

Geoff Carrington, 56 years old – Supporter since 1975

Best Tranmere Team

1993/94 Aldo, Pat Nevin, Mogsy, John McGreal, Danny Coyne or Nico in goal… great team that almost got promoted, quality all over the pitch.  Used to love the fact that half the team would be in the Clipper after home games.

Worst Tranmere Team

2009/10 John Barnes era… enough said!

Best moment

Whilst there’s so much this is easy for me, Norwood’s goal at Wembley to get us promoted… still sends shivers down my spine when I think about it!

Worst moment

When we were relegated from the league in 2015…

Best game

FA cup win against Southampton, 3 down and came back to win 4 – 3… I remember walking down Borough Road on the way home and some Southampton fans kicking off saying Birkenhead was a shit hole… yeah it is a shit hole but we still beat you ha ha.

Worst game

Vs FGR 2017 play off final… horrible game against a horrible team.

Best Player’s haircut

Ian Goodison


Bas Savage

Best signing

John Aldridge… what a legend!

Worst Signing

Jason McAteer

Best season

1993/94 it was just amazing to be a Rovers fan and see us genuinely compete with the 2 sides from across the Mersey.

Worst Season

2016 first season in the conference – the football was just shocking

Best goal

Andy Parkinson vs Middlesbrough worthy cup 99

Worst Goal

Not sure – any goal against us…

Best Kit

I would say the current home kit

Worst Kit

Green away kit from 1995 (for some reason I used to have one and wear it all the time!)

Best Nickname

Super white army

Worst nickname


Best Chant

Super white army

Worst chant

“You’ll never get a job…”  Hilarious!

Cult hero

Eric Nixon – Tranmere through and through


John Barnes – awful manager who then played the race card when he got sacked.

Hard man

Steve McNulty


Vinnie Jones when he played for QPR against Rovers – horrible player to watch.

Facial hair

Danny Lloyds Beard… that’s a proper beard.


Aldo’s tash… just no! 

Worst player’s haircut? Bas Savage.

Savage was known for his extraordinary style and played for Rovers between 2008 and 2010.
