Gateshead Game Predictions 09:29 - Mar 29 with 17547 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.

I thought Gateshead did pretty much did what we should be doing. Possession with more tempo, got the ball to the half way out of defence quickly (ala man city) and varied there play from there. There midfielder (Francis) was the hub of everything good they did and had the freedom of the park. When they played the ball forward it stuck and they carried a threat. We where very passive , when played forward we lost possession or recycled. So frustrating.


A major factor in our inability to retain possession up front is the reluctance of support from midfield arriving, and this is entirely due to our style of play. The midfield tend to stay deep to receive the ball when its recycled backwards

This was alleviated when East was being played in a more advanced midfield position. He started scoring too, before that ploy was abandoned

The negativity employed has, i'll readily admit, got to me and it really is down to a slavish 5th-rate version of what the manager has imbibed from much higher up the chain

Agreed we've lacked a no10 type player all season to link midfield and forwards. Indeed for me the tactics are very Bbm were it's all about self promotion rather than what's needed to garner results for us.

A very insightful post. Gateshead seem to be really punching at least their weight. You say their budget is one of the lower ones..lower than Dales? Interesting that you say they’ve had a couple of great managers. Shows what you can do with a great manager.


Yes - they had ex Newcastle United Mike Williamson as manager for about 5 years until he was poached by MK Dons. They current have ex Newcastle United Rob Elliot as manager. Both had player manager roles and that keeps the cost down. The whole club is heavily volunteer led and has no more than 27 staff. I have friends who are very actively involved. Newcastle United give them a pre season friendly every year and this season they sold out all 7300 seats. Helps financially of course. They only get around 1000 home fans and so money is tight. But they have done really well in cup competitions in recent years and that helps too. If my maths is right, they have played 7 or 8 cup games so far and have the semi final of the FA Trophy next week. But yes their budget is lower than ours based on what I think I know about ours.

Looking at the likes of Gateshead, Bromley, Solihull and Altrincham who are in playoff contention the key factor seems to be that of year on year consolidation. It isn’t overnight success.
I’m not sure what their budgets are but they seem to be well run from the bottom up with firm foundations.

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?


why must you shut down an opinion that differs from your own by the 'provide me the evidence' routine? Surely we all have an equal voice and healthy debate is desirable?

you do this quite often.

Go on... do it... reply with ...... if you look at my previous posts; or provide the evidence.

What I will say, to all is don't fall out over little Jim, he will be gone within 18months - how do I know, because they all do. I genuinely hope he goes via being head hunted for a better job as this will mean he has turned around the results.

Good luck to LJ and the team for Monday, hope for a win and a win in style.

Which are the managers that play this type of football?

Our crowd numbers have remained steady when you look at the last few seasons.


442 -

Good point here.

Why are we so consistently bad at succession planning? If we think about the past 30 years, how many successful managers have been proactively appointed by the board - probable Steve Parkin's first spell at the club?

Keith Hill forced the hand of the board through not only the results but the paradigm shift in the playing culture.

So, it seems successive Boards have not been able to pick a winner.

As I said earlier, Jim will move on, either fired or headhunted - who are we lining up to replace him?

How do you know that?


In the fans forum SG said he had maintained the playing budget but cut costs in all other departments- expect this means we are well set for this league - though I am not sure.

Please provide the quote(s) of me getting personal.

Thanks in advance.

If I was to get personal, I’d probably ask why a dullard continues to post on here after announcing they’d stopped bothering for the season and giving their opinion on something they’ve not seen. I’d also point out to them that they’re about as funny as Lenny Henry when they create posts about Groundhog Day and the like.

On the subject of previous posts, if you’re going to create an alter ego, then it’s probably best to remember to stick to the story.

Woking (A) Match Thread by wheniwasyourage 16 Aug 2023 16:01
I've been a supporter since 1987, and I'm currently quite frustrated with the situation. My concern isn't primarily about our position or the league we are in, but more about the prevailing culture. BBM established a certain tone at the top, favoring a "tippy-tappy" its not about results style of football. This approach has continued under McNulty. The managerial changes from last season haven't been beneficial either.

I often come across comments from other supporters saying, "could've, should've, would've... if only the referee..." and so on. However, we are where we are, and every team deals with the same officials.

In my opinion, McNulty isn't showing leadership qualities needed to be a football manager. As for his substitutions, well, lets just say Elvis could do better and he has been dead 40 years.

Final question or observation - when was the last time we scored from a corner or freekick?... ah remember Jason Peake and his perma tan?



Barnet Game Being Streamed Live by wheniwasyourage 6 Mar 11:09
At 53 min I turned the game off - first time for me since I started following the Dale in 1986. I won't be spending this Saturday watching, its not good enough.

Pretty clear to me that if SG was not focussed on the American Invasion, Jim would be fired, as I think the form since Jan is one of our worst on record and the on field performances are rubbish.

Its important to remember we all love the Dale, so for the 'Big Jim' fan club, lets agree to disagree and I wish the team all the best for Saturday and the rest of the season.



86 or 87?

Asking for further info to back up an opinion enhances a debate. Which YoutubeDale did to be fair, even if I might not believe his choice of manager doesn’t scream out as someone who we should bring in right now.

I try to be fair, yes that can be repetitive, but it’s better than just saying “you’re talking nonsense” and nothing else - something that would be shutting down a debate. Much like when people choose not to continue debating when the thread doesn’t suit an argument.

That’s not, in my opinion a healthy debate.

For me I would stick with Jim.

As stated before I expected us to fall through this league as others such as Stockport and Scunthorpe did.

County I think went thro a multitude of managers before getting back into the football league..poss 8 or 9...Gannon twice?

Perhaps the changes player wise in the summer will see a change in approach..but I’m prepared to be patient at this stage.

At the moment i am just glad that we potentially have a lifeline to save our club from folding.
JM has been dealt a very tough card to operate with this season and I for one am grateful for the job he has done on a very very tight budget.
Mid table in our 1st season NL is a fair position given the recent condition of the club.
I see the points of view from a fans perspective but i would certainly not be looking to get rid at present.
Lets see how the rest of the off field action pans out then take it from there.

Recruitment won’t mean a change of style.
New players will arrive based on their suitability to play the current style of football.

Gateshead Game Predictions on 11:50 - Mar 31 with 1357 viewsJames1980

I think for some posters they don't want to lose face, which is why they are fairly quiet during a good run of form and back calling for a new manager after a loss. I'd like to see Jim being given the opportunity to build a squad for the next season as early as possible and perhaps even be able to take them away on an overseas preseason training trip finance permitting of course.

Well we will just have to wait and see ...

Peoples approach can change..will it?..ive no idea

and neither has anyone else


for me Jim stays ..others think differently thats fine

I at this stage expect us to be in this league for several seasons.

Bigger better equipped sides than Dale such as County Wrexham and now Chesterfield are testament to what is needed to get out of this league..and at present we are lacking in all these factors the main one being talent on the pitch..they are trying but are no where near league 2 standard..in order to attract the talent and experience required we need cash we aint got that either and nor do i expect the new Ogden buy in to chuck money at the club..its almost a philanthropic gesture rather than a commercial plan and that again is fine by me

...all of which has been discussed and pretty.much established

The impression from your original post suggested you thought the style of play was dictated by our budget and circumstances. It's almost the opposite. Everything else remains to be seen... except that

Perhaps there will be a change in approach next season..perhaps a different style may work or it may see us getting drubbed every game..im more than pleased with what Jim has done this season i expected as mentioned a whole lot worse.
