Well as you all know, I am not one to toy around (not these days anyway) so I will speak my mind.
Today’s disappointing result should be put into context, this replay has secured the clubs future for 3 minutes 57 seconds, it’s a hell of a run for our little club on our little budget, something I credit everyone at the club with, as you will have seen in my numerous appearances every time a camera is near.
It’s obviously a constant battle for a club our size to survive and as a director and employee it’s vital I don’t cock things up again, so I am running with the BBM theology - bURY Bolton and Macclesfield, Christ you don’t know how lucky you are to have me as CEO, look at those poor sods.
I did contemplate the KH theology, but someone started laughing saying we have been “Keeping Hornets” for years
Anyway I will update you weekly on any changes in our planned approach, currently we are stockpiling menthol cigarette filters and liquorice papers, it’s a bold move, but one with a lot of thinking behind it, as a club we have a budget lower that most conference clubs so it’s a case of looking after the pennies and employing a man of my pedigree.
Don’t have nightmares, we are team Rochdale remember
All the best DB

Another coward kills 2 people and lost his pointless deluded life in the process.
The bystanders who took the guy on, particularly the last guy pulled away by the police officer, and stopped many more deaths deserve the highest honour we can offer as a country.
Proud of the quick response, proud of our emergency services, proud to live in a free country and proud to be British today.
RIP the 2 innocent people who died

Bearing in mind the bench at weekend and the obvious lack of options we have, basically everywhere but in goal, I had a quick look at players with no club, there are loads, who we could approach and get registered on a months deal initially, assuming it suits both parties, and probably won’t cost a lot as beneficial to player and club.
Some may not want to play any more, some might not be able too due to injury, some might not want to come here, but surely must be worth a chat. Few names I found are:
Buckley-Ricketts - local and classic broken to, only 21 and a winger/forward
Peter Whittingham - can play defence and midfield - veteran stage of career
Bunn - no club and might be worth a go with limited risk
Beckford - obviously injury prone and retired, but is he finished or just sick of last 2 seasons
O’Neill - quality player historically, no club, local, experience
We may have approached some of the above but even a seasoned l2 veteran is probably better than a bench full of kids and Calvin!
|Ex players who never appeared to give 100% for us|
at 19:17 3 Oct 2019
In light of Pogba strutting about stealing a living last week I was trying to think of ex players here who never appeared to give 100% effort. I don’t mean the likes of George Donnelly, who always gave his all with limited talent or those we signed such as Mark Leonard who were finished really, regardless of effort.
I can’t think of that many really, Binman maybe, Paddy always gave his all but clearly had stamina issues, Jason Peake I recall being criticised for bottling tackles and Paul Williams never tried 100%.
I am struggling to think of many other than Williams that definitely did not try their hardest.
Sure I have opened a can of worms here but my memory is not what it was!!!

Around 2 years ago I remember a football match that made me so emotional I was close to tears, that was a close as I will ever see to that day.
Amazing amazing amazing- what a performance!!!!

|Trivia quiz for you all.|
at 19:01 1 Jul 2019
Other half kindly bought me a framed print of Dale shirts through the ages which is really cool, classic kits by goodteamonpaper if anyone is wanting one.
Just thought as a bit of fun would see if we could work out the squad numbers/likely players for the pre squad number days.
I know a fair few but thought 1 answer only each would be good, or else tvos will do the lot 😂😂😂
I would post a photo but I am clueless so.....
34 - 39 number 5
61 - 63 number 4
68 - 69 number 9
77 - 79 number 3
79 - 80 number 6
86 - 87 number 10
91 - 93 number 2 (Pretty sure this was Andy Thackeray)
93 - 94 number 12
95 - 96 number 11
98 - 00 number 18
02 - 04 number 16
07 - 08 number 15
13 - 14 number 22
14 - 15 number 40
17 - 18 number 31
Be interesting to see if they are random or chosen as out stand out players, I am guessing the former!
Have fun guys and girls.
|Danny Mayor- could we be an option?|
at 10:16 27 Jun 2019
Just been reading in the bURY times that he is essentially off as no contact offered and not being paid etc. Currently down at Plymouth in discussions and has another club to see today. He also states he wanted to stay as he has just had a baby and bURY is local for him.
I personally can’t see him coming here as this is probably a come and get me advertisement to all clubs local to bURY and the likes of Salford, Bradford Rotherham, maybe even Blackburn and Preston will all pay more than us.
Certainly worth a phone call though as he will know BBM, we are local, pay our players, will know a fair few of our squad and will probably be an integral part of our team. Also, bearing in mind the affection held for him at Gigg, we could attract a few of there fans, especially if the do go to the wall or have, as likely, a team incapable of winning football matches.
This is not gossip or based on any rumours, merely a few thoughts!

|Worst and best ever 11 and manager - since 2000|
at 15:40 9 May 2019
Bit bored today with weather being so crap here so wondering who we rate is worst and best ever players we have had since the millennium, obviously in natural positions.
I know this has been done before but not to my memory just since 2000.
I never had the honour of seeing big reg etc play so be interested to see who gets named, plus the sick part of my mind likes to remember players I wanted to forget.
Will start with Craig Dawson in best 11 and hope Michael Simpkins was in the 2000’s as he was truely woefully bad.
