Rovers in full control won 2-1. Liverpool manager says it was the worst performance of the season so we must have done something well Gave away a sloppy goal 10 min before the end. Keeper came flappin

Chaddy, it is impossible to defend the kick-off time for the Burnley game.  It's another kick in the teeth for supporters.  I can attend but friends who work can't attend.  If I had been working I wou

Excellent performance by the Under-21's last night at St. George's Park - and what an outstanding venue that is.   We really ought to have won by more than one and controlled the game for long pe

I was flicking between the game and working but it looked like we had a lot of possession. It did look ponderous at times though. 

Still, a very good win under the circs!

They had a man sent off so played the second half with 10 men. They gave up the midfield and defended the edge of the penalty area. It didn't look as if we had a great passer who could break them down. Best prospect looked to be centre back Garrett who is not 18 until next March but who stepped up in to midfield and a lot of the play went through him.

Was he the big lad? If so he reminds me of my younger brother at that age.

Been spoken highly of for a while. Lots of injuries since that article apparently but now back to fitness. Signed his first pro contract this year.

Anybody know where Durrant is from ? I had a mate who played pro Rugby League who's dad played for Bury back in the day. He'd be about the right age.

He's from the Wirral and is a Tranmere fan. He started out at Everton, then Liverpool and came to Rovers two years ago. All this gleaned from here - https://www.rovers.co.uk/teams/development-squad/profiles/midfielder/sam-durrant/

I saw bits of the game today. He was busy and constantly involved but lacked a bit in decision making. he was getting into good positions on the edge of their box regularly but would then choose the wrong option. But in the end he took his chance well.

I managed to miss the sending off right at the end of the first half but it meant the second half was just Rovers trying to break down a wall of Brighton players. Eastham spent large parts of the half sweeping from the edge of the centre circle. It looked like it wasn't going to happen until first a penalty won and scored by McBride and then the 95th minute winner from Durrant. Lewis Thompson looked very assured at eft back again.

That was a strong win with basicly the U-18 side that went to the semi-final in the FA Youth. Even more impressive considering Brennan is away on loan, and there is not so much creativity in that lineup.

There is raft of good centre-back prospects in Barnes, Whitehall(plays midfield, but reckon centre-back is his best position) and Garrett. 

I'm sure Pike will have a career as a professional footballer. Maybe with us.

On todays performance I was not impressed with Pike at all.
