|Dales Audited accounts |
at 10:23 25 May 2019
With the massive wake up call at the Circus t'other side of Heywood just when are the next set of financial results due for the Dale?.
Will these be from season 17/18?.
with 56 of 72 league clubs in the red and a black hole of £400+ million we know the system is broken.
The problem is that SKY and The football league could quadruple payments and it would make NO difference clubs would still overspend in the desire to reach a promised land.
Harsh penalties to be introduced ASAP I think is the best solution to stop this reckless money spending throughout the football league.
|Jamie also in trouble |
at 16:17 21 May 2019
I ate here once and thought it was VERY over rated.
Administrators to Jamie Oliver's restaurant chain say 22 sites have closed resulting in 1,000 redundancies after the business collapsed.
KPMG said attempts to bring fresh investment into the business - at a time of rising costs and fragile consumer confidence - had failed.
The business was left without enough cash to trade while in administration, meaning that all but three of its 25 eateries have closed.

What a Twonk.
Just apologise unreservedly you idiot!.
|Congratulations to Accy|
at 07:11 24 Apr 2019
What a first season in league 1 they have had.
Big away win for them last night.
Here is hoping they bag at least a draw v Plymouth on Saturday and Wycombe do the business with at least a draw v AFC Wimbledon.
Up the Dale.
|Easter to remember?|
at 07:06 15 Apr 2019
it is looking like things will be a lot clearer come a week tonight.
Here is hoping for an Easter to remember.
We need at least a win from 2 games to take us into our final home game v Southend with a fighting chance.
4 points this coming weekend would be an unexpected bonus and 2 x wins dreamland.
Up the Dale! it should be a cracker on Good Friday at Spotland.
|Boeing 737 Max 8 |
at 09:33 12 Mar 2019
After the Lion air and Ethiopia crashes would you want to fly on Boeings new 737 Max 8?
They have orders for over 5000 on the books they need to get this sorted sooner rather than later.
Brand new planes coming down in very similar circumstances just after take off.
Just to put it into focus TUI will fly 15 of this aircraft out of / into the UK today!
|league 1 games in the relegation scrap |
at 16:39 16 Feb 2019
Walsall in big trouble losing 3-0
Bradford 0-0 Plymouth
Gills winning 1-0 eek.
Oxford and Shrews currently both drawing.
Southend fight back to gain a creditable point at home to Pompey in the early KO.
Tuesday is HUGE lets hoping we get right at Wimbledon from the 1st minute.
|City Tonight |
at 11:38 8 Jan 2019
In what is a welcome distraction from woeful league form! tonight we host the City Kids.
Just what side Hilly will put out is anybodys guess I just hope we are on it for 90 minutes and give a proper account of ourselves.
Should be some floating interest and good to see all 4 sides of the ground open for this one.
Win tonight and then spank Posh 4-0 and we will be back on track
|Calm heads - Support in Adversity |
at 08:38 7 Jan 2019
Well the wheels are off that's for sure.
quite how we can play 3 games 0-13 after back to back wins is a mystery but that's exactly where we are at.
My own slant is booing during a game is out of order. Boo at full time should you feel the need but It looks like the players need our support more than ever. We must be the most battle hardened fans out of 92 clubs so lets start to show it.
I don't know what it is but I am prepared to give Hilly this window and th remainder of the season to show he still loves the Dale - loves his job and can once again get the players to run through walls for the club.
More of the same ( last 3 games ) and we might not get 40 points!!
Come on Hilly! Come on all the supporters. We have had it much more difficult in the past lets show the club that when the chips are down and the clouds are darkest it is us the fans that are the shining light that will never give up on this wonderful football club.
Up the Dale.
|Drop off charges at Manchester Airport |
at 13:30 7 Nov 2018
I have just dropped off my elderly parents at Manchester airport.
WTF - for dropping off passengers ( I mean less than 5 minutes ) to drop them off with bags and a charge of £4.00.
this is £48 per hour!! Profiteering at its worse - Shame on you Manchester airport.
A definite boycott from me - Has any one managed to drop off friends / relatives and get around this charge?.
any ideas welcome.
|Usain Bolt - What level if in the EFL?|
at 17:16 18 Oct 2018
I would have said NO chance EFL and tier 7 / 8 at best but!!
I watch his Aussie debut goals and he looked a real handful!! Superb finish for his first goal in a double he scored.
West Coast Mariners are watching him closely and Valleta ( Malta ) have made a bid for his signature.
anybody think he can make it professionally?.
|September 2017 - Gillingham at Spotland |
at 11:07 14 Sep 2018
Almost a year exactly since we won 3-0 v 10 men Gills.
Tom Eaves sent off for his poor challenge just before half time.
This was the game that gave me confidence that we had more than enough to survive comfortably in league 1 last season
Little did I know how the season would pan out!
Hopeful for a similar result tomorrow to kick start some home form.
Up The Dale.

Wow Teresa is plunging to new depths.
Reminds me of del boy to Rodney in OFAH when he says he has one word for him to describe his latest get rich quick idea!
Africa Rodney - AFRICA!!
Smacks of desperation and what is all that about linking aid to trade?. Bonkers.
Brexit just gets murkier and murkier.
|lets hope for one of those special nights!! |
at 16:44 21 Aug 2018
Floodlights on.... Tuesday Night....
Dale beating Bolton 1-0 recently
Dale beating Huddersfield 3-0 recently ( when battered for 85 mins we only had 3 shots ).
No fear and defend from the front... no fannying about with the ball in danger areas and the lucky break of the ball in the final 3rd.
COME ON THE DALE!!!
If Barnsley are cheering a plant pot on 89 minutes I will be a very happy Dale fan!!

13-10 Rochdale, 12-5 Poshies, 12-5 Draw.
I never realised what a tough August we have.
Away at Rochdale, who're expected by many to do much better this season and who started with an away win, followed by...
Luton (H), Charlton (A), Plymouth (A).
I guess it'll be the same team as against Brizzle unless any new bodies arrive before the weekend, in which case it'll be Target man + Godden up front.
Be a proper physical encounter this one. When was the last time we had one of those?
If Uncle Steve's team is designed for one thing, it's to do much better against the likes of Rochdale, Gillingham, Blackpool etc.
|Thai Cave Rescue|
at 11:25 9 Jul 2018
Good luck to the Thai Cave rescue mission to save the young football team and teacher today.
Whilst its difficult to understand how they were allowed to enter a complex cave system in the first place ( in rainy season ) I do hope they bring them all out alive and well today.
2 weeks in the dark with very little to eat or drink must be horrendous.
4 out yesterday - fingers crossed they can have them all out by tonight.
|Ernie 10 years|

Just seen the RIP Ernie tweet.
What a great player this fella was.
10 years since his passing - time really does fly by.
RIP Ernie now and always.
