Season by season - Dale finishes and top scorers Wed 1st Aug 2007 23:11

And if you know you're history..... A look back at how we have done in every season since our formation

Match Report (18.08.98) - Dale 0 Wigan 1 Wed 1st Aug 2007 23:11
A 1-0 home defeat led to an aggregate 2-0 defeat to near neighbours Wigan Athletic. An improved Dale display failed to overturn the first left defecit. This ends Dale's involvement in the competition for another twelve months.
Match Report (15.08.98) - Dale 0 Torquay 2 Wed 1st Aug 2007 23:11
The vultures are already circulating over the head of manager Graham Barrow's head. A dismal 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Torquay brought about chants for his sacking in this the second match of the season.
Match Report (31.08.98) - Brentford 2 Dale 1 Wed 1st Aug 2007 23:11
Dale can consider themselves very unlucky to have left Griffin Park with nothing to show for their travels, after a particularly fine display. They had the divisional favourites in all sorts of bother at times, and were well on top for long periods of the game.
Match Report (08.08.98) - Plymouth 2 Dale 1 Wed 1st Aug 2007 23:11
The season began with such optimism as the Dale blue army (all 124 of them) invaded the South West for this opening day encounter. Hopes were high, and even higher as Dale took the lead in the opening few minutes. However, all optimism soon faded as the home team took control....
Match Report (29.08.98) - Dale 0 Darlington 0 Wed 1st Aug 2007 23:11
Despite controlling the game for long periods, Dale failed to convert possession into chances and could only record a goalless draw in a hugely disappointing match with Darlington. There was little of any note in the game, making the following match report all the harder to write.
Wall of Black and White - 18.08.07 Wed 1st Aug 2007 22:10
Picture the scene ....... Saturday 18th August, and Dale run out of the tunnel for the opening home game of the centenary season, and are met with three sides of the ground packed out with black and white.

Pub Guide - Cemetery Inn Wed 1st Aug 2007 09:16
The Cemetery is a little further from the ground than the other featured pubs, but it's character certainly makes it worth the walk, and it was recently voted as the second best pub in the whole of Rochdale.
Pub Guide - Studds Bar Wed 1st Aug 2007 09:15
When the board decided to build a stand on top of the crumbling Pearl Street terrace, there was very little opposition from the Rochdale supporters. Once the fans heard that there were plans to build a bar underneath the proposed new stand, there were celebrations from dusk till dawn.
Pub Guide - Church Inn Wed 1st Aug 2007 09:15
Situated just a short stumble from the away turnstiles, this is a pub which tends to be a favourite of visiting away fans. Though that's clearly not to state that its away fans only. Far from it, you'll always find Dale supporters in there, plus a small number of non footballing locals. But it's certainly one which tends to draw in the away supporters.
Pub Guide - Dale Bar Wed 1st Aug 2007 09:14
Formerly known as the Ratcliffe Arms, the Dale Bar has been open for about three years now and is without doubt the busiest place before matches for home supporters, with an increasing number of away supporters in attendance too.
