In what will hopefully become a site feature, we asked for your questions for Wayne Evans and here are his replies.

Who was, in your opinion, the most talented player you ever played with at Rochdale? – Le Fondler

In my opinion, Paddy McCourt had exceptional talent, hopefully he hasn’t wasted it!

Would you consider a coaching role at Spotland in the future? - Tommo0405

Definitely, if the opportunity arose.

What was your best moment playing for Dale? – ScallyfaxDale

Too many to mention, playoffs, FA/League Cup ties, scoring week in week out!

That goal you scored against Carlisle from 35 yards out. It was a cross really wasn't it? – BlueDutch

I spotted the GK out of position, so took my chance and hit the target

Which Dale manager did you enjoy playing most for and why? – ManchesterDale

Steve Parkin and Simmo, both had excellent man-management skills, great on the technical side and earned respect from the players.

What are your opinions of Rochdale Football Club as a whole and what do other people you have been in contact over the year’s think of the club? – BlueDutch

Very friendly club that welcomed myself and my family always. During my time there had the pleasure to meet some great people who work to make the club what it is.

What are you drinking? – DaleyLama

It will be a pint of lager please, now that I don’t have to stick to blackcurrant and water!

Don't remember you ever getting stick from fans... too consistent! But others you played alongside must have done. What was the overall effect, and any different at Dale from other clubs? – D_Alien

All of us got stick at some time or another, it’s demoralizing for the individual and has an effect on their fellow players also. Paying the gate fee should not give someone the right to come and abuse you for 90 minutes, I usually had an answer back ready for the ones like that! The sad thing is this abuse happens all over, I have heard worse unfortunately, and when it gets too personal or even racial they have crossed the line in my opinion.

Who is the worst dale player you have played with? – BrotherChris

Um, no comment!

Do you think Neil Edwards favourite movie was dirty dancing!? – Le Fondler

I heard it was Brokeback Mountain!

Give us your best Dale XI from your time with the club – ColDale






Gary Jones






Weren't you going into coaching in Wales? – wroughtironronn

I did a short stint helping out at my old club as Player/Manager @ Welshpool Town and was Youth Development Director for TNS, just on the border in Oswestry before landing my current position as a Technical Director in Canada.

Who was the best player you played against while at Dale? – Olympic dale

Damien Duff, I just couldn’t get near him!

Have you still got Peter Beagrie in your pocket? – Judd_Runt

It was enjoyable to pit your wits against players who have played at the highest level, Beags was a very skilful player.

What are the most memorable Rochdale games you played in? Good or bad. – dale_iain

At Cheltenham, getting sent off, and I thought I was going to have a clean record!

Do you get tired of hearing everyone saying 'soccer' over there? – dale_iain

Yes, I am trying to educate them into my way of thinking!

How important was it to you to have Tony Ford on the right with you? - R17ALE

He kept everything simple.

You came very close to scoring in your final appearance. Do you remember that chance and if so how gutted were you not to score? - ColDale

Although I don’t remember the opportunity, I was disappointed that I didn’t have the chance to say thanks and goodbye to the fans
