Planet Prentonia is a hub for alternative Tranmere Rovers coverage. It was founded in 2015 by Ryan, after he grew tired of the cliched view many people have of his club.
As a proud pillar of a unique community, Tranmere have a rich heritage that is often overlooked by mainstream outlets. Overwhelmingly, Rovers are portrayed as the younger brother of Everton and Liverpool, giants that lurk on the other side of the Mersey.
However, Tranmere were formed in 1884, eight years before their Anfield rivals, and have a beguiling history of their own, from developing Dixie Dean in the 1920s to reaching the League Cup final in 2000.
Therefore, Planet Prentonia is an attempt to penetrate the lazy stereotype and explore the true soul of Tranmere Rovers, a plucky club of striking independence. We want to go beyond simplistic match reports and diluted platitudes to tell the real story of Wirral’s preeminent sports club.
Though placed on indefinite hiatus on its third anniversary, Planet Prentonia still has a beating heritage on these pages. I’m incredibly proud of the digital enterprise we created.
We accrued over 85,000 visits to the website, close to the population of Birkenhead.
We accumulated over 15,000 views on YouTube, close to the capacity of Prenton Park.
And we attracted almost 4,000 followers across social media, close to double the typical attendance at a Chester home game.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the legacy of Planet Prentonia on ryanferguson.co.uk. There may even be a few surprises up ahead.
