For those who watch regularly, what are your thoughts on Mungo Bridge (apart from having a great name and the possibility of reusing the old U-gooooo chants!)? I was just reading that he'd been invited to join first team training on a number of occasions this year and Smith really likes him.

I've not seen much of him but when we offered him a pro contract he had an offer from AC Milan as well.

Mungo, Ramsey and Barry to prosper and try not to make us cry about Jack when the time comes.

And Ramsey (his brother) and you can't have this discussion without mentioning Archer or Legion will hunt you down, I've heard good things about Tyreik Wright as well.

I think it's fair to say we have a few good prospects.

Damn right! There is an article in the B Mail today highlighting our 5 best academy prospects. Archer, Barry, Vassilev, Ramsey and Bridge.

I dont understand Hepburn-Murphy playing for Derby's U23s instead of getting big boys football at Tranmere even if he didn't always start for them. He scored for Derby this morning but why not just put him back in our reserves? Unless a pre-contract to join Derby in the summer has been agreed but it's an odd one.

If so, I suspect that I will not be the only poster on here to be severely pissed off!!

I'm guessing it's for match fitness as he had only played about 20 mins since boxing day.

Yeah against Yanited in the FA Cup where he looked decent!  Still think there's a player there who should be ahead of Vassilev in the pecking-order.

I agree. He's a horribly underdeveloped talent.

Hopefully we don't blow that lead.

Can the men's team have 15 of those points?
