@HxtfcRichard is definitely worth a follow on Twitter for those watching Dale in the 70s & 80s.

Take this little beauty, for example...

Or even from the early 1990s? Does anyone recognise themselves?

Are you sure about the date? The state of the pitch looks as if the picture could have been taken on Saturday against Bradford!

Funny you should say that - I took a quick gander at the pic and looked at the crowd to see what they were wearing. Saw the two fellas with flat caps and thought why has one got a sack of flour on his shoulder at a footy match? On closer inspection …….

My grandad used to do it and I think he got the odd win. Must skip two generations? (might be time to upgrade my reading glasses, or at least give them a wipe)

It's Dale attacking in a thrilling 1-0 win on Easter Monday 1986.

Moore scored the winner.

For younger viewers, the '87 game v Halifax is one of the most important games in the club's history. A defeat would have left us needing wins at home to Stockport (possible) and away at Scunny (unlikely) to avoid the GM Vauxhall Conference. These days, getting relegated to non-league, a la Notts, is pretty bad but not terminal; back then, it was like the world had ended.

Anyhoo, it was a sunny Bank Holiday Easter Monday and Dale went 1-0 up but, at some point in the second half, as the grey skies converged (see pics), we found ourselves 2-1 down and staring down the barrel.

By the end, a brace from balding, ex Bury, future PFA, top-scoring centre-half and el capitano, John Bramhall, a header from the much-maligned Simon Holden (people really hated him) and the best Dale goal ever from Robbie Wakenshaw made it 5-3.

Honestly, there would be houses on Spotland now if that miracle hadn't happened. We were going nowhere at 2-1 and looked doomed. It was borne from sheer desperation, determination and belief.

Some brilliant pictures there, the expressions on the faces of Dave Grant and Reidy were enough to put the fear of God into the opposition supporters, never mind the players!
On a more serious note, does anyone know how Keith Welch, one of our greatest ever keepers, is doing these days after reading on here some time ago he was seriously ill.

My late Mum did spot the ball every week and won nothing. She decided to increase her chances of winning with the aid of a magnifying glass. She carried on winning nowt!

Looks from this he was doing well earlier this year after a difficult few years. My favourite goalkeeper of all time. Always calm and looked to be in control, during a very difficult time for the team and club.

Very good! I can see myself sitting on the Sandy Lane wall behind the goals in the photo of Halifax scoring.

Bloody hell,in the top photo the pitch looks like it's had oil poured all over it,I can remember when pitches looked like a beach with the amount of the sand on it and I suppose that's the reason why
