If you’re under 50, you might not…

Home rowdies are in the Kop behind one goal, and away fans are opposite in the Cowshed, which housed the home fans until about 20 years ago and got its name because…

Going to a Game at Tranmere Rovers

GETTING THERE: There are a couple of ways to do this, assuming you’re starting in Liverpool.
