All this talk on here about Tottenham Hotspur and the pitch invasion adds up to one thing Newport County in the next round, it'll be just our luck.

Still after two more recruits
at 18:59 29 Jan 2018

Let's have a break from talking about pitches. A story on the OS today says Hill would like two more players one on loan and one permanent. What positions do we think we're after?

There's been quite a few changes already and I'm struggling to see the big picture squad wise. Where are we short and where do we need to strengthen.

First thought for me is another central midfielder. Someone comfortable on the ball and helps us retain possession. And then maybe a Striker?

What's needed....
at 12:15 24 Jan 2018

Purely on the beach issues as the off the beach issues are getting a little boring at the moment and hopefully some of the topics will be at least mentioned in the report from the meeting with the Dale Trust.

So here goes.....

Just completed a few very complex mathematical calculations and so far this season we have averaged 0.84 points per game. In order to get to the magic 50 points of hopeful guaranteed safety we need to average 1.4 points a game for the remaining games.

I now have a headache for several reasons the first being the maths the second being the mountain of improvement that's needed in order to reach that magic number. So I went to try and find some reassurance.....

Keith's win % with us is about 43% which would give us about 26 points add a couple of draws in there and we get to the 50 points.

It's only maths but it helps show all is not lost after all. If we have an average Keith Hill half season that should be good enough to stay up. If we have a better than average Keith Hill season we'll be well clear.

All anyone really cares about is what is the record for difference between oldest and youngest person in the team and do we break it if BBM comes on while Adshead is on the pitch 😂

Team v Stoke
at 19:55 21 Aug 2017

It's pointless guessing Hill but what would your team be against Stoke?

I'd be tempted to be a little experimental and play a young team for the experience similar to Forest a few seasons ago but lets put our strongest back four on.

Moore
Rafferty McGahey McNulty Bunney
Cannon Kitchen
Morley Allen Hendo
Done

Collis
Adshead
Andrews
Davies
Nthle
Keane
Rathbone

Presuming Camps and Lillis are injured or not fully fit. If Hill thinks Adshead is ready I'd play him instead of Allen. Done and Bunney play to get minutes under their belts.

Just seen this I wonder if we are also one of the interested parties, if we are I'm guessing we won't be offering as much money but you never know.

Youth team iFollow interview
at 21:42 6 Jul 2017

Just listened to the interview with Chris Brown. I didn't realise but this year's intake of first year scholars have purely come from the academy. That's great news and shows that the academy is working.

Also mentions some of the 2nd year's have gone to Tenerife along with academy player Adshead. All positive.

Hoping we'll get the same coverage as usual with someone going out there to report. Anyway here's a thread to discuss the goings on.

What we know so far. There won't be any trialists and the only youth player to go that we know of will be Danny Adshead who is 15 and not old enough for a scholarship yet. I should imagine there will be some of the youth team go as well but maybe not.

Proposed rule changes
at 11:24 18 Jun 2017

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40311889

Not a fan of reduced Half's to 30 minutes and stopping the clock when it goes out of play. The main problem with time wasting at the moment isn't so much the loss of time but the slowing down of play and this rule would effectively make taking your time when the ball goes out of play acceptable.

Thoughts?

International Call Ups
at 13:01 15 May 2017

Just seen the story that both Lund and Camps have been called up. Great news for them individually but could add more stress to our squad if Lund stays and Camps becomes a regular call up. I know it sounds a little silly as Dale don't really do international players as they usually are beyond our finances but if possible would it be worth investing in another international to potentially allow us to postpone matches?

Do we know where he is? Such an influential goalscorer when he's been fit and I thought he was getting back with a few sub appearances but seems to have disappeared again without any talk of injury, or have I missed something?

He would have been the perfect replacement for Calvin yesterday!

Season Ticket Voucher
at 20:08 20 Mar 2017

So all you season ticket holders with vouchers what are we all thinking?

I'm not really too bothered about VIP dining but at the same time if we reach the 2000 mark that's already a big saving on my adult main stand ticket so I wouldn't be too bothered about claiming it. However it seems a waste. I'd much rather be able to put it towards some sort of fund to help with the season tickets in some way. Maybe all voucher donations could go towards reducing the cost of 17 - 21 yr old tickets or something? Just thinking aloud. Thoughts?

I can only think of Matty Lund? But did he feature in any way with any of the qualifiers? I thought he only got back involved after the tournament.

With all the transfer window news we may be forgiven to forgetting we've got a match in a few days. Let's hope the players haven't been distracted. Now let's not pretend to guess what the team will be as we all know that's pointless but what would your line up be?


Wilson
Raff
Keane
Jim
Kitching
Allen
Camps
Cannon
Vincenti
Hendo
NML

Subs
Logan
Taylor
Canavan
RNL
Owusu
Redshaw
Donal

That'd be my pick I'm presuming the following are injured;

Lillis
Davies
Andrews
Thompson
Lund
Rathbone
Bunney

Post match interview
at 19:10 21 Jan 2017

Sounds like a really difficult week two players should have been playing and got injured yesterday. None of the injured will be back for next week. That's a huge blow and if McNulty doesn't mend we're going to be fielding a team of walking wounded next week, again. At least some of the returnees got some minutes in their legs today.
