Gateshead Game Predictions 09:29 - Mar 29 with 16038 views_Windydale

3-1 gateshead.

I'm not feeling it today. The buoyancy the players may feel, guaranteed pay for another month, new owners possibly, panics off, the players relax. No Hayes (probably) possibly... go back to the pace of a steady stroll round Watergrove rez.
I would take a draw especially after the tonking Gateshead gave Hartlepool last game.

Nope - crystal clear. Dale playing reasonably well. Quite open, and a tad scrappy. Seems we have a plan to hold a high line and compress the play. 0-0 after 25.


Ta, managed to sort somehow!

This season hasn’t been brilliant, but nor has it been awful with everything is taken into consideration. That’s without any glasses.

The assumption around us only playing one way has been shown to be incorrect.

Nope. A shot in the 82nd. No doubt Jim will be proud

Well, if you like watching your team pass the ball sideways then back to your keeper and then give the ball away when you cross the halfway line, well that was the match for you.

The worm of time turns not for the cuckoo of circumstance.

Which bit should I be proud of? Mcnulty is clapping the team ffs.
He’s at fault. Feel sorry for several of them. This gameplan ( is there one?) is ridiculous. One shot, 1 fking shot. Christ. You mcnulty lovers need to open your eyes

Another miserable away day. Not creative enough- no cutting edge. Another easy game for the opposition goalkeeper. Performance was okay but no real urgency. Lots for BJ to work on.

Who would you replace him with and could you give examples of how those prospective managers choose to play?


The players themselves say they like the way we play so why would anyone feel sorry for them?

As above, enlighten us.

Was your internet down when we won three on the bounce? And when we drew away at the league winners and beat Wealdstone?

Sums up our season, really. Not good enough when it matters. JM's comments before the game tell you everything you need to know about why, sadly, I don't think he will be the man to take us forwards. Play Offs has to be the target next season.

Wow, you are easily pleased. Ask why 400 SC holders aren’t even turning up?
It is a boring spectacle.
Keep clapping when there’s 1200 in the ground wont you?

Why would they need to have watched us? They've played us twice, and learnt from the first game how to take us apart in the second unless we adapt our usual playing style

Today will be a test for JimMc. Is he learning, or not?
[Post edited 29 Mar 13:04]


To answer my own question: No

And for the avoidance of any doubt, i don't believe Jim McNulty is the right person to take the club forward on the pitch

I'd offer him the Academy head coach role, since i believe he's got Dale at heart and could bring younger players on. Leading a team of experienced pros? He's just not got enough breadth of vision other than playing one way, which just won't do i'm afraid

There are less successful teams in this league than Dale that you can spew your vitriol at, so why have you stuck with us. Oxford City loose at lot, they should be your sort of team. Please give us up.

Unfortunately after 54 years of watching us I can’t just change my colours can I?
But like many others I could just stop going. 5 years ago there were 8 of us in our social group. We’re down to three now and mostly I ducks. Im ashamed to offer the spare sc to anyone else at the moment as they would question our sanity

The problem is, and it was alluded to in an earlier post, so many managers are playing a similar style these days and it’s trying to identify those who stand out.

Honestly? It infuriates me that any side, let alone Dale, pass it about at the back under real pressure when the stats must clearly show how many goals are conceded by doing it. That alone should make managers sit up and take notice. The hope is that there is a realisation that we HAVE to mix it up more often, not just the odd occasion, because it has been successful when we do it.

I think many Dale fans have doubts, but at the same time McNulty has put in the hard yards to deserve time to continue what he’s started. It doesn’t make him immune from criticism and he too has to acknowledge the doubts fans have when we do look one dimensional and visibly do something about it. More often.

Feel like that’s been said a lot since Christmas. The usual suspects will make jibes and disappear but I have plenty of time for those who can disagree and at least discuss the situation with some thought.

If we’d won today, making it 4 wins on the bounce would you have been ashamed to offer it?

Please could you list those managers who currently play a different style?

Was only able to watch 1st half,so my view may be a little skewed.
Could see there was a game plan of containment but thought little changed once we went behind.
Wasn't too happy with Chapman over goal as previously posted but felt front two struggled to retain the ball and thus gave us little chance to build on any ball played forward
Hayes did OK but little else in front players to get excited about

“But like many others I could just stop going”

Just stop then, nobody is forcing you are they? How long you’ve been a supporter is irrelevant by the way.

Its relevant in so much as Ive watched us under god knows how many managers and even in the ‘70’s I was never this bored. Still you have just as much right to be pleased with our style of play as I, and the vast majority of fans, have to be bored witless by it.
Id rather watch “Barrowball” than this tbh.
