Apter League 2 Young .....

He deserves a starting place next season from the off and plenty of opportunities to prove himself because he looks better than most of our current starting XI!

A local lad doing well in the first team is the sort of thing we need to give the supporters a lift!

It will be madness if he is not given a sustained opportunity to prove himself! But do I have faith in the current set up giving him an opportunity? Absolutely not!!
 
Would we have been Top 6 with him?

Who knows, in many ways I’m glad he’s stayed at Tranny and not been subject to the past few months here. It’ll have built his confidence no end, whereas we might have destroyed here.
We wouldn’t have destroyed him. Our head coach, who was supposedly brought in for his youth development skills, would’ve done that.
 
The problem is where does he play in a 3-5-2 setup? I think he’s likely to go out on loan again

He's Scouse...if that counts as local 👍 Started at Tranmere as a kid
 
This is fantastic news and we’ve got a ready made Dembele replacement for next season.

The club deserves some credit for aiding his development and securing a long term deal.
Our renowned youth football coach aided his development by farming him out to other teams. We haven’t developed him at all.
 
Tranmere fans suggesting that if they all donate £100 they might be able to buy him Others saying a Championship will buy him
. Come on Sadler/Critchley stick or twist?
 
Apter has been played as a natural wide player encouraged to cut in on his left. We don’t play this style of player.
Hang on there. I'm pretty sure that a consistent source of criticism of Critch is that he plays inverted wingers/wing backs. Rob is a leftie that plays on the right.
In Critchworld he'll be a perfect replacement for...






..Eky. 😂
 
A proper talent this lad.

If he doesn’t get a chance we may as well pie the Academy off.

Imagine signing in the summer a 21 year old tricky winger who’d just won League 2 player of the year for nothing.

That’s basically what we’re doing so he has to get a chance in a system that’ll make the most of his attributes.
 
Critchley hinting that he's not very good at tracking back or being part of a defensive shape and that's why he was left out of the 18 to start next season is annoying me already and it's not even happened yet.
After we’ve just drawn 0-0 at home to Shrewsbury 💀
 
In my opinion he should have been in the first squad this season,he is as good thats already at club,if not better than most.If Tranmere put a bid in for him he will be sold,same with C J.Why do you think the owner gave them an extended contract.Like I said only my opinion,so don’t have nightmares.
 
It would be some achievement to have a player of his talent leave us for a Championship club next season and never played for us apart from a couple of times in all the time we have had him. If Dobbie had got the job he would have been a regular in our side but that numpty Critchley can't sit on the bog seat the right way round.

That's the same Dobbie currently failing to develop anyone for the first team?

He won three dead rubbers out of six, I wouldn't put all your eggs in the Dobbie basket.
 
I don't mind that. That's the point. They are not competing for the same place. Apter takes the Dembele role.
I don't agree. He plays on the right for Tranmere. CJ can't defend for toffee, but plays all the time. He's not a wing back either. Needs a defender behind him.

They weren't dead rubbers FFS! And how do you know he's failing to develop players? Would Critchley promote anyone if they were good enough? The evidence suggests not. You've no idea how Dobbie is performing in his job. Most of his players are out in loan anyhow. It's a weird job!
