Has there been a more amusing goal celebration than for our third?

That daft parking scheme around the COA
at 15:26 24 Jul 2023

Not approved. There is a massively worded report available but the bottom line is:

"1.5 Formal representation was received in-total from 133 properties (8 percent of the
households consulted) plus an additional 22 visitors to the area. On this basis,
92 percent of those consulted (circa 1,500 properties) did not respond.
1.6 Of those who did respond, 60 percent wrote in-objection to the proposed scheme
with 40 percent voting in-support.


2.1 The advertised scheme satisfied the requirements of the commissioning brief.

2.2 After detailed consideration of the results presented herein, Highways do not
recommend the introduction of an RPZ.

2.3 In light of the scale and nature of representation received, Members should
decide on whether to abandon the RPZ and/or consider potential alternatives.
for managing on-street parking that could include such things as the introduction
of localised prohibition of waiting restrictions and/or limited waiting bays.
Reason for Recommendation
3.1 Highways have made the recommendation to Members not pursue the RPZ
proposal for the following key reasons:-
a) The very low rate of response (received from only 8 percent of households);
b) The 60 percent respondent bias in-objection to the proposed RPZ;
c) The consultation outcome does not meet the Council’s policy criteria for
progressing an RPZ scheme to Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) stage; and,
d) An RPZ is a very strong form of TRO with alternatives that may be better
suited to managing localised parking issues within the Spotland area."

Have forwarded the full report to Dale Trust.

How about a thread that remembers the good stuff. Inspiration for what we should aim to achieve in the years ahead. Plenty out there in words, memories and video. Pick your favourites.

RAFC Shareholders - Morton House = 0
at 11:22 29 Jun 2022

The updated RAFC confirmation statement (shareholders listing) is now available at the Companies House website.

It appears that the traitors shares are still listed as being in their name and not Morton House. Guessing that is due to the EFL intervention last year. Morton House does not appear on this statement at all.

Makes previous claims of "owning 43%" of the club by some people look... erm... untrue.

What does the panel think of this article?
Trillions, Toys, Munto and Morton
at 00:24 21 Mar 2022

This is a fascinating, and relevant listen - 6 audio episodes describing the Munto times at Notts County, something we were all too familiar with back in the 2009-10 promotion campaign.

Link to all 6 Episodes here:

Ep. 1 - Notts County sold a pup by smooth talkers.

Ep. 2 - "Journalists begin to pick away at the façade and what they uncover makes for uncomfortable reading." At RAFC, fans pick away at the façade and what they uncover makes for uncomfortable reading. Somebody from the toy business living of the fat of the land in his own self-interest? Parallels? How ironic that the mind behind the Notts takeover was someone from the toy industry who left a trail of disaster in his wake. "Fraudsters persuade people to lie for them" .. clip from 13:52 screams Morton House, whoever they are.

So the series continues. It gets much worse as we know.

It also has to be said that Munto put up a convincing front to get fans onboard.
Morton have done the absolute opposite - utterly unconvincing claims and absolutely cack-handed behaviour, especially online, that has ensured there is not one Dale fan who believes one iota of their implausible nonsense. They can't even understand the most basic of EFL rules where a takeover is attempted. They ran away when the EFL began to investigate. With an implausible nonsense now fronting them, they are attempting to bully RAFC to get money back from their foolish, unconvincing attempt at "investment" that has gone horrendously wrong, and will go even further wrong as the EFL investigate. High Court action against individuals to try and bully them will never win - the Dale community, the football community, the EFL will not allow it.

How impressive that our fans, shareholders and current directors have seen through Faical Soufane's Morton House. Notts, as bury, let the fraudsters in. We have done everything to keep the questionable out. We stay fan owned or cease to exist. We may find a guardian angel to put loads of money in for real one day. Until then, we as fans must remain in control.

Agreed it's grim on the pitch right now, but the fight off the pitch must carry on with the solidarity we've all shown so far. As I think 49th season quoted recently, "the darkest hour comes before the dawn". We're getting there. The future of the club comes first last and always.

Fat Pat: Update.
at 11:18 18 Mar 2022

Wednesday Morning 16th March 2022.
Fat Pat is walking home from Denehurst Park shop and whilst looking at the mobile phone, notices the EFL have charged "a number of other individuals with alleged breaches of EFL Regulations".
Fat Pat sees a familiar looking car and familiar faces whining.
Fat Pat records this for us.

Tranmere off
at 11:55 27 Nov 2021

Deja vu - Boxing Day 2011. On the coach to Tranmere. Driver pulls up to take a call just outside Liverpool, and announces the match is off because the wind had taken the roof of a stand.
