They have a very high % moronic element that's for sure.

Most of the bury fans i speak to are getting fed up with them, there could also be sanctions in the future with games behind closed doors as well as fines.

The majority are not looking forward to the prospect of football on a plastic pitch, the reality is as dreadful as the thought of it.

Two Month End Pay days to go before a ball is kicked competitively...

These dates should be targeted with office open and staff ready to roll.

30th June is a Sunday so Friday 28th June.

Wednesday 31st July.

Get some electronic activity in all Socials encouraging a pay day spend at the club.

Plus keep driving sales with any other ideas however small.

To be fair they need players.

I would also add that the new board at bFC do seem to be doing somethings right.

A little credit as difficult as it is to type.

It cannot be easy running a phoenix club when more than half your fan base think your the original shakers

Looks Pacey and direct...

Excited by this one. I really hope we become a real handful for all the National Leagues defense's next season.

If we can get Devante Rodney to sign these two could cause real problems going forward.

One major development will be the role of the new Commercial Director. What the remit and profile will be for this post will be absolutely key to income generation

Possibly the most important signing of the summer.

The right candidate will not be cheap but should be worth every penny. Its a full on challenge getting it right commercially at the Dale.

Amongst a host of other things getting 3000 home fans at Spotland most weekend must be high on the priority list.

Anything that works and helps out both clubs is fine by me!

The club needs to set a realistic target of 3000 home fans average.

That's 750 or so new faces who we need to attract to attend MOST home games.

750 looks very do-able to me.

Fair play hoping these bury fans are the majority and the phoenix club stamp out the moronic behaviour.

They look a right bunch of idiots carrying on like this.

Belated Congratulations to Wythenshaw.

The new prices are very fair indeed. Lets all get behind our club and buy as soon as they are available.

To print a card costs.. to post out i assume recorded delivery costs.. this needs to be covered if supporters have not got a smart phone.

This is a real new dawn for the club and this first season is pivotal. Stability off the pitch and a manager who has cut his teeth and has time under his belt. If on the pitch we can be a bit more ruthless in winning games regardless of style and getting into the habit of 3 points most Saturdays that obviously helps but what else can we do?.

I will be getting my app and season pass sorted as soon as they are available. I would encourage everybody to dig deep and do the same (finances permitting).

Also we all know friends, acquaintance, colleagues, lapsed, occasional, and semi interested fans.. If all of us carry on banging the dale drum and get the good news spread as quickly as we can and as deep into the community as possible, hopefully we can get Spotland bouncing (a little) on a match day.

Twin pronged of course.. they club need to do the lions share BUT we can help too and I for one cannot wait for the new season to start.

UP THE DALE!!!

Any excuse and no accountability..

Even the Phoenix reborn bury AFC dont have the good grace to call out these idiots.

They are clearly obvious to identify now.

bury phoenix have short memories only picking out a narrative that suits them.

This is a second offense after a fan stadium ban earlier this season.

NWCL to act? more serious sanctions make the club wake up a bit.

Edit.. to be fair they have condemned the actions of the morons (bury times sport).

If this is true they should start next season behind closed doors for the first 6 home games.

Just why do they think they are above rules and regulations.

Time the NWCL showed some balls and impose a stadium ban and deduct more points bury start next season on -10.

Fan Survey on playing style (n/t)
at 15:53 26 Apr 2024

There are small signs that when we play the Jim Style with a little more urgency and pace it can be difficult to play against.

Whilst not laying a glove at home v 3 relegated teams Dorking / Oxford and Boreham Wood I think we looked the better team against all 3. It is very frustrating therefore that we only mustered 3 draws.

Winning games buys time for managers and with a decent retained list, some good additions to the squad and a quicker tempo of Jim's style might get us all back on board.

Looking at the goal of the season reel quite a few goals had to fast forward several passages of play pre goal as we scored quite a few after 20+ passes.

Its when it goes wrong or the extra sideways pass when the crowd are frustrated that is the problem.

We have Jim starting next season and he will be recruiting this summer so I don't think we have much choice other than to dig deep, buy a season card and turn up to cheer OUR team on. It can be a frustrating watch i agree but in a tricky first full season we finished 11th so lets build on that.

The most important summer for a very long time.

Jim I wish you the very best of luck and hope you can pull some pacey attacking rabbits from the hat.

Whilst true, the smoke and mirrors of 16 wins this season as the best in 7 years (Social media not Jim) shouting like this is a success, the reality is 16 wins is bang average.

Next season we should have much more ambition what's wrong with targeting 25 wins or more from 46.

Chesterfield had 31 wins last season that is the same as Rochdale and Oldham combined.

EEL is on league wages he would have to take a significant pay cut.

Has been very good the last 6-8 games... yes earlier in the season looked out of form and not 100% fit.

If he can fit into the new budget and give us 40 games like the last 6-8 then absolutely another season would give us some continuity at the back.

Its a new dawn, I am hoping Jim is pretty ruthless with the cull and then we recruit well to have a real go at the National League 2024/5.

Well said.

Its a second chance that i did not think would be possible. We were VERY close to not seeing out this season.

Its up to everybody now involved at the club and all the supporters to come together like never before to ensure we only move forward and go from strength to strength.

Up the Dale.... When are the season cards on sale????

The commercial director signing could be the most important of the summer. The right one will not be cheap but could be the best signing made in a long time. Commercially we need to be 2024/25 ready just as much as on the field. The right person needs to be a ruthless type who lives and breathes success always moving the club forward.

Onto Jim.

Nice Fella, Dale through and through and he stepped up in our hour of need. We cant have death by a thousand cuts on the pitch next season this is the most boring negative insipid football i have seen at Dale since the bad days of the mid 80,s.

I am sorry Jim whilst i agree we dominated (a poor opposition) last night we dominated possession only using negative boring style of football and never looked like winning. If this is allowed to carry on next season will see the exodus continue. Somebody needs to sit Jim down and ask him has he another plan on how to play quicker more attractive football that will actually excite the dwindling few who attend. Its dire make no mistake and that is from somebody who likes Jim, appreciates what he has done and more than anything wants him to succeed.

The last two home games against relegation fodder we managed 1 point and 1 goal in 180 minutes of football. Two home games when we were safe and it would have been a free hit to take some risks, get on the front foot and see if a faster / simpler more direct style got a different result!

what a mess to unravel... Huge decisons to be made.

Jim - FFS have a go on the front foot on Saturday!!!
