There was shock news today as centre half, Chris McCready re-signs for Crewe Alexandra on a two year deal. Chris was a regular for Tranmere last season, and I personally thought he was one of our better players last season overall.

Surely this means another centre back must be on their way soon. Rumours have it that people like loanee John Thompson or MK Dons centre back, Ben Chorley could be soon entering the Prenton Park doors.

But if we want to be some sort of promotion hopers, we have to keep are best and most consistent players! Crewe have got a sound player in McCready, he certainly impressed most of the Tranmere faithful last year. But back to my original rant, how are we going to challenge for even the play-offs without McCready type players. In that sense I mean, consistent, sure defenders. Goodison started the season fantastically, but withered in the final few weeks, Thompson was a loan signing, but hopefully we will capture his signature on a regular basis, Sherrif started well also, but his form was inconsistent, along with Stockdale. We need a solid foundation, starting at the back, so here`s to hoping we replace this loss, and find some gems somewhere.
