Match Thread: Dale vs Coventry
at 14:37 23 Feb 2020

I’ve now watched the fans’ forum and, as good as the directors were, one thing puzzles me.

This rancour towards our style of play has been prevalent for most of this season. BBM was sat there and yet not one person asked him about it. Not one.

Wasted opportunity.

And then we try the more direct approach and score. Funny that.

There is something extremely irritating about the style of football we are trying to play.

I reckon they, Macclesfield and Bolton will be glad just to get to the end of the season.

Two large bets placed with Sky have started all of this. BBM knows nowt about it and isn't interested in leaving us - already planning our next season and is putting pieces in place for it.

If your reaction was vitriolic and ended in a call for the manager's head then fair enough, that is way over the top, but it was reasonable and fair to criticise the pressure we put ourselves under making mistakes caused by our own system rather than their talent.

And clearly written by people who haven't actually seen us:

"...comparisons with a certain Pep Guardiola and Man City, which is testament to the attractive style of football Barry-Murphy implements at Rochdale."

But we haven’t created this crisis. It isn’t even a crisis. Someone’s stuck some money on BBM for some unknown reason and now there are odds.

Unless we see him buying a bucket and spade, I wouldn’t be worried.

Oh dear. I’m afraid it’s you that has just shown your true colours. That’s a very revealing post actually.

I’ve been objective throughout. I have questioned David Bottomley and defended him from unfair criticism as and when appropriate. You can ask the man himself whenever you next see him.

I’m very much looking forward to viewing the fans’ forum, which still hasn’t materialised for those who weren’t there. It’s very churlish to suggest I’d be unhappy with any satisfactory answers that were provided about the future of our club. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Tony Pockney and the financials, for example, and that has warmed the cockles before I’ve even heard his pitch for myself.

Can always rely on you to bring politics into it. I know that much.

Largely, although all based on the direct account of people involved.

I don’t just make shit up - no release clauses in player contracts; the demands of
Henderson’s agents; Calvin refusing to leave in January; bids for players on deadline day; Dunphy’s departure; the current board - all posts based on the testimony of somebody or somebodies who would know.

And while it is just that, somebody’s testimony, I only share it in a bid to stop unfair comments growing arms and legs, or, if I believe it’s important for other supporters to be aware. I’m not unique in that.

Why would it detract from my interviews?

The interviews and my posting on here about other issues are not mutually exclusive.

That’s the problem. There is so much conjecture. I probably shouldn’t have posted anything, to be honest, but I am asking questions behind the scenes about what I have been told.

The chip is so large it’s left a cleft, old bean.

Not irate, actually amused at your apologist stance on behalf of the club throughout this entire period of questioning. Perhaps they’ll offer you a VP?

I can’t say what I heard because there could be legal complications.

It implies I heard different but, as I wasn’t in the room when he walked away/was told to go, I cannot say which version is correct.

Is that clear enough for you, Tony? You want to get some Polyfilla for that chip in your shoulder.
