Don’t really mind Tranmere, some decent away days, and friendly banter. Feel like in a squeeze they’d help us out, have loaned us players etc. Get decent gates.

Newport, tinpot club who got lucky in the play off final.

[QUOTE=Back of the Kop;2260598]I'm struggling with this one ?

Rivals in what respect ? Geography dictates if you mean derby rivalry and "local bragging rights" so why would Newport be on your list but Tranmere not ?[/QUOTE]

A rivalry doesn't mean exclusively local. Derby means local

Just which teams do you dislike most, which fixtures against certain clubsare more than just standard games?

Re: Rank the Rivals
 
Think I’d prefer Newport to go up as they’re Welsh whereas Tranmere are wannabe scousers.

I’ve always seen Newport as a bit of a nothing team though, ranking a distant third in the Welsh rivalry stakes. Does our rivalry with them just stem from them beating us in the play offs? I doubt that we register much with their fans, unless I’m missing something?

[QUOTE=Back of the Kop;2260605]Lol.....since when did Newport become a local rival to Wrexham ?

They're 4 hours drive away.You can get to London faster[/QUOTE]

Personal choice. I live in South Wales about 10 miles from Newport.

Don't think the original poster said local.
People dislike Newport since the playoff final and that away game where we spent the whole game being pelted with objects by their idiots , although a few of our idiots were encouraging them.

1. Chester
2. Shrewsbury
3. Cardiff
4. Swansea
5. Newport

Tranmere, Crewe etc only become rivals if we are in the same division
