I imagine it's to do with the debacle over our financial irregularities after we beat Sunderland in the Play Off final in 1990. We were demoted two divisions (which would've meant Tranmere were promoted to the 2nd division), but was changed to demotion one division meaning the Trannies didn't get promotion after all.

I thought it was the floodlights in '93. Probably both.

They definitely do hate us though. Some pikey twat shouted "what goes round comes round cheating Swindon cunt" (or words to that effect) at me as I was walking towards the ground before the last game of the relegation season a couple of years ago. I was genuinely bemused by that for ages  Cheesy

That makes sense. We were the ones demoted...yet they were the ones that feel robbed.

And the fact that we beat them, twice.

Well, they made no effort to get the game on the other week, in the hope some of their injured players would be back (shame it didn't work  Cheesy). I guess by their logic that also makes them cheats.

Don't get the Tranmere disliking us.... but as someone else said who cares!
Other fans don't like us because on the pitch we have been successful - have to say that I am rapidly going off Boremuff.



Quite right.  It is the duty of every football fan to take a dislike to other teams that are doing well.  Nobody ever hates a shit team (except Oxford, of course).

Just seen that Adam McGurk the Tranmere striker is now ruled out for between 4 to 6 weeks with a collapsed lung. Things really aren't going too well for them at the moment.

Not sure, he didn't play against us in the week as he has a ham string injury.
Edit:just read this: It happened over night, He suffered a Pneumothorax which is when air gets between the two linings in the Lung causing it to collapse.

I'd forgotten about that - can remember "floodlightgate" though.....
