And increase stewarding and policing costs in the process while undercutting their own season ticket holders? £22 is far from unreasonable, especially for a game where travel costs are minimal. If we were top of the league then we'd have had no problem at all shifting the full lot. People are free to make their own choice and I'm not overly bothered by how many fans we take (especially as a lower following should hopefully lower the bellend factor), but let's not pretend it has anything to do with cost.

Totally agree, cost is irrelevant to the thousands of fans that can afford £22 (less for concessions).  For me, the combination of the weakest line up we'll field since Hill took over, the inevitable defeat probably without scoring, and the idiots that go to local aways, is enough to let me wait a week for my next football fix.  Saying that, if we win I'll probably go to Lincoln on Tuesday full of enthusiasm.

Sadly so do I thin end of the wedge this    And he can fuck off with this “keep putting my neck on the line”, like he’s doing us a favour. I must’ve missed it when He turned down Madrid an

Read Hills comments and while he may be taking some of the social media muppets to heart hes basically right. There was one mon on after Burton saying we should be beating these at home! Not any more

Thing is Keith lad, we ain’t Rochdale or Barnsley.  Aye, we’re in the shit but, rightly or wrongly, we’re always going to have high expectations. Your fucking job is to try and get near thos

We should be applauding the 2000 plus who are parting with their hard earned not criticising the support. Might even end up nearer 3k you never know. 

Its just after Christmas, its £22(thats dear to me for plush Rochdale ) plus getting there, more if taking kids. Its 3rd time weve been to this dump this season.  We have little chance of getting owt and the season is almost a write off. Like i said well done to those who are going . Give em great support you have my utmost admiration 

 

Well said.

I get that we’ve lost players and will be bedding in the odd new signing; but these men haven’t won at Spotland in the league since October, and will hopefully have one eye on Tuesday’s game.

Let’s not rule us out getting something here. COYWM

For all the negatives on our part, its a huge factor in our favour that they have the Newcastle game to think about.  None of their plaeyrs will be risking injury or a sending off and if anyone is struggling for fitness they'll be rested.  Hopefully that includes Wilbraham.

He’s over 36 they’ll use him sparingly. 😉

I fear this will be remembered in infamy as the season Rochdale beat us 4 times.  (And then someone will tag on the Accy result). Hopefully the only way is up next season

If we're counting the league cup defeat we have to count all the "youth" games, all the 5-0's and 6-1's, which will always be accompanied by an asterix.  And the reserves cup wasnt a defeat, it was 1-1, we progressed to the next round at their expense thanks to that point.  (I'm being deliberately pedantic, I do agree how this will look if we lose tomorrow).

Feb 1959.

Stoke played 5 successive matches (all third round) against Bury. Bury managed to fit a league match in but Stoke's was postponed (Jan 1955, 8th at Stoke, 12th at Bury - abandoned after 112mins, 17th at Everton, 19th at Liverpool, and 24th at ManU). 

That's magical.  What adds to it is knowing the effort that would be involved to find out the results.  Not even teletext or local radio 5 live.  You'd probably have to wait to buy a paper in the morning to find out how your team's gone on in a midweek away game.

The other glorious thing about the 5 cup matches in 17 days is that the squads had about 13 players in those days, no subs were allowed and rotation was none existent.  Pitches would have been a mud heap in January and the ball like a wet through Christmas pudding.

Getting organised to set off for the train, i think Rochdale station is marginally closer to the ground than Bolton but it'll be a nice walk anyway. 🙂

Preparing for the worst today  & hoping that Rochdale will have one eye on their cup replay, but any plusses today will be a bonus.
