It’s good that there’s been a reduction for younger fans but the impact on ‘pay on the day’ after rising prices for adults will have to be monitored. Looking at promotions like 3 games for the price of two etc may be an option.

Sadly passed away. He was a really nice bloke and quietly was a massive influence during the Dave Sutton era.

Presumably it was for mentioning Bolton the required amount of times.

In all seriousness, well done to all involved. It’s been an excellent addition to supporting Dale over the last 18 months or so.

The tactics
at 17:21 9 Oct 2021

Time for a change. Not a time to chuck all our toys across the floor, but results dictate what did work, no longer is. The strength of the back three was the wing-backs form and contributions in the last third (both O’Keeffe and Keohane scoring for example). Also, the wider central defenders we’re joining in whereas now their form and confidence is clearly impacting that.

We’ve missed out on getting the midfield destroyer/protector who would have meant we probably wouldn’t be playing 3-4-3 anyway. That should be addressed in January but until then, there needs to a return to a back four where the full-backs concentrate on defending first, adding to attacks as and when. Stick Keohane or O’Connell in front of the two centre halves and get the other midfielders closer to Beesley when we attack.

Yes, it’s frustrating and today was poor but a month ago we were all extremely positive after the Tranmere win. There has to be an acceptance that this season may see these fluctuations in results and performance with the manager and the club supported throughout it.


Edit: there needs to be more aggression in our game too. That’s not kicking people but getting to the ball first, getting forward into space and looking to force the opposition to defend their box regularly. Everything we know we can do comes down to playing in that manner.

Be interesting to see where Keohane is deployed. Could be a 4-3-3.

These sort of things are cropping up more now, some more interesting than others. This one illustrates how Stockdale’s forum views on making the right pass to get the ball into a position where we can score, is backed up by the way we’re now playing.

Not received anything yet it terms of accounts/agenda and of the meeting. Apologies of missed this but as it’s two week from tonight, for fans unable to attend (inc.virtually) this all needs sorting so people can nominate proxies as appropriate.

Lynch, McLaughlin, Keohane, OConnell, Osho, Morley, Rathbone, Lund, Grant, Done, Beesley.

It says on OS that Shaughnessy fit enough to be on the bench so may have a knock. Not really sure why we’ve changed the formation.

Oh and you can bet Doncaster’s young sub keeper will come on and save a penalty to send us down.

Although it’ll mean they will go above us by a point, we could really do with Swindon winning this.

A Wimbledon win would be a six point gap again, which would possibly be a bridge too far.

Lucky kit: mint/mint/black
at 08:45 14 Mar 2021

Obviously we all remember the lucky random white socks used to good effect during the great escape of 17/18, and we may have a similar strip success to hold onto this season.

We have now randomly worn black socks with the mint shirt and shorts twice, a combination that led to wins yesterday and the comprehensive destruction of Plymouth. Looking at the fixtures, we are able to wear this kit in every remaining away game bar MK Dons on the last day. So we’d better be safe by then.
