Africa Cup of Nations
at 14:34 17 Jan 2022

Agree with those who've said it's been disrespected by Europe's top leagues. If you're going to sign top African internationals you know it's part of the deal they'll likely be called up. Plus, it gives squad players more game time at top clubs filling in for them

And its providing entertainment like this:

Great to see Ben Stokes will be fit for the Ashes


The touring conditions will be particularly onerous this time round, so hope he's in a good place mentally too

But first up - the T20 World Cup, and a great start against WI, our nemesis in the last Final
Dale and NDAs
at 15:06 14 Oct 2021

James raises an interesting point in the Shocking BBC article thread, but i feel it's one worth considering seperately

How do we feel about NDAs, *going forward* ?

It's particularly pertinent now the Trust have a board member. It's understood that perhaps the Trust board rep won't be party to all Club board activity, and that in some limited instances the Club Board might require engagement in a NDA to further its business in our interests. But should the Trust board itself ever agree to such a constraint? If it were to become privy to information that had a major bearing on the way the club was run or future business proposals, how can a Trust board be said and be seen to be acting in the interests of its members and Dale fans in general if its involved in decisions and actions which only the Trust board are aware of?

I'm simply setting out issues here that i feel might best be aired before such events take place (if they haven't already done so). This way, a policy can be settled by which the Trust can be guided, through its membership.

Regarding the Trust board rep (and this isn't about an individual but the position itself), if he/she were to become aware through their Club board dealings that an NDA was being entered into, what should the policy be about taking that further?

I just feel this is a good time for absolute clarity on this issue, and isn't a reflection on how things may have been done in the past

Superb capitulation against 10 men, keep it up!

That's three key figures in the recent history of Dale recognised within the past few days, plus Cloughie of course

Good to see

Yes, born in Canada of Chinese and Rumanian parents

But in the UK since the age of 2, so she's ours. Went to the same school as Dina Asher-Smith. Parents will be fighting to get their kids in there!

Live on C4, first serve due at 9pm

With EFL on Quest and MOTD both on record, come on R Emma!

Great to see us in the vanguard for this type of initiative; and how timely too

Hope to see some feedback from club representatives in attendance in London
at 20:49 22 Aug 2021

Just checked, and it sounds like an exciting game today, finished 34-34 v Hunslet (a proper traditional RL outfit)

In this time of rapprochement, i think we should be pleased to have our COA-sharing Rochdale outfit putting on a show for their fans

I've no doubt they'd have been sunk had the MH shit-fit succeeded, so perhaps it's time to put old disputes aside with them (on here) as i'm sure there's very good relations with our new board. They're Dale, like we are
Is Archer finished?
at 13:40 5 Aug 2021

Amid the turmoil closer to home, some bad news from the cricketing front (to go with shabby performances, by the Test team at least)


In posing the question about him being finished, i'm thinking in terms of the devastating pace that he began his career with. i honestly don't think we'll see it again after this latest setback

Soon to be Sir Tony Lloyd

I've written to him about the movement of shares, and the implications it may have for our club. It's probable that he's already been contacted about the matter, but i'd urge as many people as possible to do the same

Something worth supporting
at 11:39 16 Jun 2021

Would be good to see the club acknowledge this too, with something appropriate at the finishing line? Good publicity for us, as well as the cause

Today's Ups & Downs
at 14:16 8 May 2021

Some very tense situations playing out today

As things stand (with about 20 minutes to go), Rotherham are out of the Championship relegation zone but if they concede away at Cardiff they'd finish bottom!

Derby rallied after the break but find themselves behind again...

Edit: and as i'd finished typing, Rotherham concede - and it was an earlier kick off

Further edit: and Derby equalize!!!

Incredible technical feat

Impact subs
at 14:26 9 Apr 2021

Talking about impact subs in the Euro thread, dunno about anyone else but i tend to have a "favourite"

Could be Dale, but this season we've not had much impact from the bench (can only think of Tavares in our solitary home win), but in a wider context there's usually someone who doesn't normally start but i like to see coming off the bench

They don't necessarily have to have the best stats in terms of goals scored or overall results - it's mainly just players who create a different and often better option for seeing a game out

This season, mine is: Edinson Cavani

Scarcely believably, given the single-figure temperatures, the county championship season has started

Major revamp of the format with initial group stages, god knows why
