As perplexing as the first team is right now, I had an interesting chat with a neighbour yesterday.
“You support Rochdale, don’t you?” he says.
“Aye,” I reply, thinking I’m about to get grief for us busting his acca or something.
Not the case as it turns out, his cousin is a goalkeeper playing for our youth team. His name is Reagan Maliska. I don’t know too much about him apart from he pulled off a special save to keep us in the FA Youth Cup recently.
Apparently he had countless offers to join other teams in England and Scotland, but the package and prospects offered by Dale trumped the lot – especially the digs on offer and the fact we are putting him through college. He’s been waxing lyrical about the club to all who will listen.
So, while our first team continues to confound, it’s nice to hear our youth team is still getting talked up nicely and attracting players from far and wide.

We were right to worry about McGahey. That defence makes me very nervous. Up to the attack to bail us out today.

When do we start worrying about McGahey?

No Raff again and no McGahey. Trialist starts. Assume it's Ntlhe, but who knows?

When you think about our squad, it looks quite healthy already in terms of numbers. I guess the question is about quality.
As it stands, you’d be looking at a possible starting XI of:
Even BBM and Collis if desperate.

Speaking to a friend in the trade and he seems to think our James Hooper is turning out for Norwich U-21s. Surely some mistake there?

Lapland might be best known as the home of Santa Claus, but it's a 22-year-old English striker currently providing gifts to the people of the Finnish region – in the form of goals.

While it’s true Rochdale AFC couldn’t be described as an elite football club, plenty of elite players have credited the Dale with launching their careers.
From broken toys who needed to be fixed, to rough diamonds in need of a polish, to academy products nurtured from the beginning, Rochdale AFC has propelled a proud number of players to the Premier League and international stage over the past twenty-five years.
In The Rochdale Connection, Chris Fitzgerald catches up with six of them to find out just how the club helped them and what, in their opinion, it takes to become an elite footballer.
There are stories from cultured centre half Alan Reeves, Rochdale’s own sons Craig Dawson and Matt Gilks, the prolific striker Rickie Lambert, as well as the fleet-footed Will Buckley and powerhouse Glenn Murray.
There are also reflections on the impact the club had on the careers of Paul Butler, Grant Holt, Adam Le Fondre and Paddy McCourt.
