    How many years do we have to watch this same aimless, floated ball into the box!!!!? We are in the third season of it!

    I actually thought he didn't play too badly but why does he still take set pieces.

    Incredibly frustrating player. Should have had 2 assists today but there's times he tries too much.

    Agreed, thought Westbrooke would have been on corners and free kicks today

    Shouldn’t be in the team full stop.
    And no, it’s not a knee jerk reaction to the last couple of games, said it even when we were winning, he’s not good enough to be a main starter for a promotion hunting team, regardless of him being a local lad and kissing the shirt.

    Walsh's delivery was just as bad.

    Why do we need 3 defenders on the bench?

    Because the manager insists he does and then wanders why we never score from them.

    He needs to be out the team and Kelly needs to be back in

    This is what drives me insane. Robins has spoken at fans forums the last two summers about acknowledging we need to improve massively at set pieces... Then continues to do exactly the same. One of the main reasons I look forward to Allen coming back.

    It’s pure stubbornness or is it stupidity. They have all week to practise set pieces and find a good taker.

    Are we s
    Are we serious about this? It was his pass that set up several chances, could easily have had 3 assists if not more. Shipley was far from the problem today.

    What would this help us with? Even less attacking creativity and 2 midfielders sat on the halfway line instead of 1? Again the book stops with the front 3 today not with the midfield, we completely controlled the game (what the midfield is there for).

    Wouldn’t play Shipley until he sorts his hair cut out anyway nearly as bad as his set pieces

    Again, they are different types of midfielder, playing Kelly and Walsh in the same 3 is just negative.

    Yep, I'd play Shipley ahead of Walsh if you're bringing Kelly back in. Bit more attacking and has played some brilliant through balls in last few games that had the striker scored we'd be hailing as amazing assists.

    In the main Tranmere thread, someone criticised Shipley’s corner just after Walsh had taken the corner...

    Pretty much sums up Cov fans.

    Drop Walsh for Kelly.

    Set pieces aside I rate Shipley, better passer than Walsh

    When Allen is fit Shipley will be benched, his general play wasn’t too bad today but his set pieces are shocking but that’s no surprise as they always are.

    I would hope to see Allen Kelly and O'Hare as the middle three

    Official figures say 19 shots 1 on target.... Shipley's fault.

    Don't agree......also had we won, scoring 2 or 3 (as we should have), this would not have been a thread. Of any problems we have in the team, Shipley isn't one of them.
