Home Boycott – 03/05/2022

Boycott BP The plain and simple fact here, following our relegation to the National League, is that a clear line must be drawn in the sand. Or perhaps in this case, a line must be drawn in the stand. We encourage people to read this entire statement, obviously, but the take-away message is clear…please consider …

Blackout for Tranmere – 27/04/2022

On Saturday, our 115 year stay in the football league came to an incredibly sad end. Despite how turbulent the season was, and the glimmer of hope that John Sheridan gave us, there was an air of inevitability following years of mismanagement by Abdallah Lemsagam and the current/previous board of directors. These people sit in …

Reaction to Club Statement – 26/04/2022

Having read the club statement, we felt compelled to respond and challenge. We have been given false promises time and time again and are now being asked to put our faith in a board that have repeatedly let us down.

Salford Game – 19/04/2022

Salford Game We are on the brink. 126 years of the football league comes down to Saturday. The 2-0 defeat against Forest Green has left us all but relegated. When the club has been run the way it has over the last 4 years, there is a  feeling that this was sadly inevitable, but it …

Royle Interest – 17/04/2022

PTB Response to Steve Brown – 23/12/2021

Steve, We have just read the statement from the club (here) regarding the decision to rescind the 3 year bans handed out to 3 supporters. We are astounded by the lack of apology/ remorse towards the three lads involved and to then issue final written warnings would indicate that these supporters did something wrong which …

Open Letter to General Manager – 20/12/2021

Steve, You will no doubt be aware of why we are contacting you. We are at something of a loss as to how and why the action of banning two supporters has been taken. The timing, not only is it a few days before Christmas, but also a matter of days before the biggest game …

Supporter Respect – 17/12/2021

In recent weeks we have witnessed a number of incidents that we see are causing an increasing divide in our fanbase.
