On the basis of former players alone, I'm supporting Newport.

Norwood was very young and raw when he was with us but that doesn't excuse his Billy Big Bollocks with nothing to back it attitude at the time. Scot Bennett, however, was thoroughly unspectacular but pretty reliable and professional.

Wembley, The best stadium in the world when you win and easily the worst when you lose.
Worst reasons for supporting or not supporting a team ever.

Newport please.

Quite like to visit Tranmere again and Michael Flynn is very well thought of around these parts.

Good luck to both tomorrow.

They're not great games to lose. I couldn't tell you how it feels to win a PO Final, mind. That's not a forte up at LN5.

Would like Newport to do it, from where they were before Flynn took over and their other history be nice to see them get up, much like I wanted Accy up.

Don't mind Tranmere either though our record there in my time is shite.

Good luck to both teams; youve both had excellent seasons regardless of what happens today. I'd like Tranmere to do it as they're a well run, big club and all the people involved with the club I've met in person have been very friendly and helpful during my visits (my one attempt to get to Newport had the match called off after crossing the M4).

Enjoy the day everyone.

Safe trip down both and enjoy the day.

Have plumped for Newport but purely for location purposes.

Want Tranmere to win purely to keep my play off acca going. Then just need Charlton and Villa to go up for £86.

Hope it’s a good game and personally it’s nice not to be involved this season.

Good luck Tranmere, get back to where you belong.

Watching the dozen Newport fans who bothered to go celebrate beating us a few years back was one of the most depressing experiences in my life as a Wrexham fan.

Good luck to both teams today. No preference for me and no insight into who are the best team as Newport were severely injury depleted and Tranmere were half paced on the final day of the season when we played them at Crawley.

I will admit to some envy though. My lot have never been involved in one of these at any level never mind Wembley.

I'm still amazed that Tranmere are in the play-off final. They don't appear to have much apart from Norwood. Newport look the better side.

Newport are very good at pinning the opposition deep in their half with those throws ins.

Hard to do owt when the ref gives Newport a free kick every time Matt backs into someone then falls over.

Rovers had the best effort of the half, but Newport are getting a lot of dangerous ball into our box too easily and fear eventually something will come of it.

Not sure how these 2 sides have got to the play off final, both mediocre from what I’ve seen.
The only teams in the Top 7 that even impressed me this season were Bury (both games) and Mansfield (when they spanked us at home).

It's been a wide open bang average season and I expect more of the same next season.

I thought we played well at your place. Cracking game imo.
