New pitch and programme rules
at 17:18 8 Jun 2018

https://www.rochdaleafc.co.uk/news/2018/june/efl_summeragmroundup/

Looks like we are going to have to get a new hybrid pitch from July 2019. Also programmes will no longer be compulsory, but I think this was mentioned before as a possibility.

Programme v Wimbledon
at 13:03 25 Aug 2016

Just seen the article about the TVOS v Wimbledon programme:

http://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/rochdale/news/43655/tvos-preview-dale-v-wi

I think the article about Steve Banks should have been in the MK programme seeing as he played for them before they changed their name. A bit of a red rag to Wimbledon fans in the away end! Presumably we couldn't get an interview with Alan Reeves as he would have been the obvious choice of ex-player for this programme for both sets of fans.

A bit before my time but I did meet him briefly at the centenary celebrations in the Town Hall.

I see Bury have got another way of raising money - they can hire out their match announcer!

Can't believe Accrington did this!

Tommy Cannon
at 16:22 5 Sep 2014

Some of you may remember that in the 1980s at a shareholder meeting a teenager told Tommy Cannon that he didn't own any shares in his own name and therefore couldn't sell off Spotland to line his own pockets (I think I have the story right). This almost certainly saved the club from oblivion. Anyway, I did not realise until yesterday that this teenager, Edward Lord, had gone into public life until I saw this article in the Telegraph about FA discrimination policies (about two-thirds of the way down):

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/news/11073916/Edward-Lord-attacks-FA-o

To think I got Tommy Cannon to sign my programme once (could even have been this one):

2005/06 on Dale Player
at 13:43 23 Aug 2013

For those with access to Dale Player there is a review of 2005/06 (Holt and Lambert). I've only watched the first 15 minutes or so but it was nice to see our 4-1 win at Orient again.

Any news on whether there will be a live video of this on the Dale Trust website, as mentioned on the recent email newsletter?

This may have been answered on the news item on this site, but unfortunately I cannot open it for some reason (not sure if it is just me).

Hill interview on Dale player
at 14:05 15 Jul 2013

Partial summary here (mainly about the Halifax game):

http://www.rochdaleafc.co.uk/news/article/hill100-915674.aspx

There were a couple of other items of interest that have been discussed on here. Blackpool have made an offer for Grant but that it has been rejected. If they come back with a better one then Grant will probably go. Lillis has an injury but should be back for the Macclesfield or Preston games - if not then we will look to get someone in.

New official website

Old subject, I realise, but are there different versions of the new-style official websites available to clubs? I find the one Dale (and others) have picked rather unhelpful, but these versions, for example, seem more user-friendly to me:

For those of you who boycotted Hartlepool because of the price, try this for size from the club which has just got £800,000 for a player plus a TV appearance fee:

As we have not played there before, here are the facilities you get for the price:

Movember Quiz
at 13:08 29 Nov 2011

Following on from 442Dale's quizzes last week I thought I would try a picture quiz, inspired by Movember.

How many of these Dale players can you name? (1 to 7 across the top row etc). Some are easier than others, I think, but most are probably tricky for our younger fans - I couldn't think of any more recent players who would fit the bill.

Picture quiz
at 10:54 22 Jul 2011

The thread about Eric Snookes has made this good timing but I was going to do it anyway. Takes us back to the good old days when we weren't having to worry about whether or not to accept £500,000 for one of our players.

Here is a picture of Colne Dynamoes in 1988. Can you name the 2 ex-Dale players? One is quite tricky. (Not sure why there is so much white space around the picture).

I have a few more testers if there is any interest.
