Well done to the board!
at 18:02 22 Apr 2019

The ‘new’ board of directors have come in for an awful lot of criticism since taking charge, but they have to take some credit for making a huge decision which looks to have saved our League One status.

I did not agree with the sacking of Hilly, but hand on heart I could not foresee this turnaround had Hilly still been in charge. The sacking of Hilly, and appointment of BBM, has been nothing short of a master stroke.

I’m sure BBM has a lot to learn, he’s not even had a transfer window yet, but the players are playing for him and that gives us a platform heading into next season.

Well done to the board and a massive well done to BBM and his team.

2018/2019 Training Wear on sale
at 16:20 20 Jun 2018

Dale have released their 2018/2019 Training Wear...

https://www.rochdaleafc.co.uk/news/2018/june/club-shop--training-wear-2018/

In a word...awful. It looks horrendously cheap. The items with the Errea logo shading down the sleeves may have been OK if they didn't have ROCHDALE A.F.C. plastered across the back. I bet there are Junior teams out there that look more professional than this rubbish.

I really hope this isn't a sign of the quality to expect come the 30th June...

Mick 'Papa Chaff' Chaffey
at 09:33 29 Jan 2016

I'm absolutely gutted to post this, but I'm sad to inform you all that Mick 'Papa Chaff' Chaffey passed away last night.

I've written this out a hundred times, but I still can't do the man justice. Mick was the nicest bloke you could ever meet and Dale through and through. Up until recently Mick could be seen at pretty much every Dale game, with his son David (Chaff), and whatever rabble he'd driven to the game this week. Always comically grumpy, always something to moan about, but above anything else always a top top bloke who was great to have in your company.

Cliche central but he will be missed. Massively.

Chaff has asked me to post because so many on here knew Papa Chaff, in fact he's probably given half of us a lift to an away game at some point.

RIP Papa Chaff.

Ashes 3rd Test - Edgbaston
at 15:16 21 Jul 2015

England squad announced. Out goes Ballance, in comes Bairstow.

I think I agree with that. I'd guess it means Bell up to 3 (on this home ground), Root in at 4, and Bairstow coming in at 5.

Ex-goalkeeper coach Peter Fox in deep (heat) trouble

Saw this on the beeb - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-stoke-staffordshire-33555987

He's our ex-goalkeeping coach isn't he? Nowt wrong with a bit of Deep Heat on the nads to focus a young players mind. They should be thankful its not Olbas Oil or a tickle after he's been eating Salt & Pepper ribs! The world has gone soft.

Good luck to the lad. As much as the move was great for Dale, and great for Scott, I do wish we'd seen what he could do in League One. Just for a little bit.

Much better performance from the boys tonight! Buzzin for @JamieAllen95 like a young paul scholes out there, watch this space! #rafc #baller

Olly Lancashire
That's more like it! Great performance and win. Also what a debut from young @JamieAllen95 #youngScholes

Scott Hogan
Enjoyed watching that tonight, possession is king haha! #pop #rafc

Joe Bunney
Much better performance from the boys tonight, pass pass pass, buzzin for @JoeRafferty5 what a header!! And @JamieAllen95 WOW! #Scholes 👏⚽️

Thought he looked very good in pre-season. I'm pleased he's been given an opportunity, it looks like he's grabbed it with both hands.

If any more nails where required in Tutte's Dale coffin, I think Allen has just hammered them in!

FIFA 14 - Ultimate Team
at 20:06 16 Sep 2013

For those who play Ultimate Team on FIFA, the FIFA 14 Web App is now available so you can get a head start on building your squad before FIFA 14 is released...

http://www.easports.com/uk/fifa/football-club/ultimate-team

In addition to your starter pack (you can't trade any of your starter pack) you get bonus packs depending on the numer of years you've played, and also a daily gift when you logon that day. Think I've had 4 or 5 gold players in the free packs, but none of them from the EPL.

So far I've managed to trade to a point where 9 out of my starting 11 are Gold Premier League players, with the addition of the Dale club badge and home & away kits.
