'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Moore's Orient Reaction

Ronnie Moore has said that Tranmere simply put up the white flag way too early in the four nil loss to Leyton Orient this weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site following the defeat, the manager said that he felt that the team just gave up way too easily when we went two nil down, and then with the sending off of Ian Goodison, they basically packed up shop and decided their work for the day was done.

'It's disappointing. The way we collapsed was embarrassing. I thought there was nothing in the game in the first half and then they scored a great second goal. Then Goody goes and does something stupid that has let everyone down. With ten men it's always going to be a battle but the white flag went up too easily for me.'

Moore says that he wanted the team to keep their discipline, keep their shape and give their all to sneak that one goal back that would've worried the opposition and given them the belief that they could get back into the game, but we just didn't do that.

We rolled over.

The worry there is given our league position and current form, it's only the players who can change this, as nobody else is going to help, so if they aren't prepared to fight come whatever on the pitch we really could be in trouble.

However fighting on the pitch certainly doesn't extend to Goodison's actions on the day as the manager admits you simply cannot do what he did and 'slap somebody in the face like that'.

Worse for Moore is the fact that he's our captain and he's meant to lead by example, worse still the chairman's award element to things.

As you can expect, he's expecting a response on Tuesday and he won't be a happy man unless he gets it.
