    it's a home game - so Rochdale will pack out defence and midfield, we won't have any idea how to break them down, they'll catch us on the break at the end and McCann will blame everyone but himself

    And it'll be a high scoring game. 4-5?

    Co-op, Gracie fields, Lisa Stansfield, Bill Oddie, Anna Friel blah blah blah.

    Britain’s first automatic tills were tested in Castleton in the early 1980s, before being installed nationally in Asda stores across the country.

    The world’s first railway tunnel was built in Rochdale at Healey Dell.

    Cotton Famine Road celebrates the relief packages sent by Abraham Lincoln, when his port blockade to end slavery decimated the local industries and lead to wide scale famine.

    Hitler loved Rochdale Town Hall so much, he wanted it removing brick by brick to be rebuilt in Germany.

    Politician John Bright was a personal friend of Abraham Lincoln, who had a portrait of him on his wall. A bust of John Bright is still on display in the Whitehouse.

    A single lavatory was built inside the town hall especially for Queen Victoria but, despite it being in full working order, it has never been used.

    Rochdale AFC played 36 consecutive seasons in the football leagues bottom division from 1974 to 2010. This is the longest any team has been in the bottom division.

    Captain Matthew Webb used Hollingworth Lake as a training camp before becoming the first person to swim the English Channel in 1875.

    On August 13 1994, the Co-Operative broke the world record for cooking the largest pancake, marking their 150th anniversary in their hometown, Rochdale.

    The world’s largest factory under one roof was once in Rochdale (Dunlop Mill). I don't know if the 'once' bit is connected, but..John ‘Earthquake’ Milne, credited with developing the seismograph, was raised in Milnrow.

    Before the recent re-opening of the River Roch, Rochdale held the record for the world’s widest bridge. It stretched from the Lviv Bridge outside Number One Riverside in Smith Street to an opening in The Esplanade.

    A good win is generally followed by a disappointing game .

    It was also the location for the Central Finance and Distribution function for Woolworths, one of the first major computer installations in UK outside of government and academia.

    I know someone who goes in my local pub who is called Stansfield and comes from Rochdale. He isn't related to Gracie though. Or Lisa.

    We'll win.
    It's the following four where we might struggle.
    For all Barton is a tit, him, Ferguson, Robinson and Cotterill* will all know how to deal with McCann's 'tactics' and set their teams up to do just that.
    Hope for 15/15, but think the return might be somewhat thinner than that.

    *re-admitted to hospital with Covid issues, so probably has a bigger battle to fight than City.

    Rochdale fleeced £40k off us when we 'illegally' approached Terry D*lan.
    Never forgiven them.

    That we paid Rochdale compensation for taking Dolan off them is one of life's rich ironies.

    4 game winning streak against them, despite McCant, so we’ll definitely make it 5! Back to back wins tomorrow, no worries!

    They are in absolutely abysmal form, we should be pasting them.

    They've only won 1 game this calendar year, played 6 in Feb and scored once.

    There can be no letting up now, we have to keep winning and put these type of teams to the sword.

    Typical Dale fans...



    I've noticed (from BBC stats) that more often than not, when we have less % possession than the other teams but have lots of shots (some on target) we do well...

    That's because we usually play our best football on the counter or from set pieces.
