#2975433 Dale Bid for Stadium

Posted by PooingDog on 11 August 2014 - 03:33 PM

It's true that there are a number of Dale supporters that would like to see Hornets fail. Unfortunately for them though, unlike Hornets, the Dale is not a Co-op and so they have very little influence on the BOD, and I don't think Mr Dunphy or the rest of the board are idiots.

#2879014 Hello!

gogledd....Friendly results would suggest that we are going to struggle when the season kicks off for real. Especially so since there's five going down.

A 54 points to 4 kicking at keighley and a 62 points to 6 drubbing by a mixture of the academy and fringe players from St Helens doesn't bode well, the only preseason game we have won was against Leigh under 20's and then only by 4 points.

Having said that friendlies are are about ironing out problems before the real season starts are I think Talbot is a very capable coach, the link up with St Helens is still place and the lads train there and have access to the physio etc.

There's been some good additions to the squad, most notably a couple of Fijian international who have played in the NRL, if Talbot can mold a team (and I think he can) then we may stay up.

Anyway good luck with your season, I enjoyed my trip to Wrexham last season (apart from the the fact it was full of them Welsh types) and will be there again this season.

#2876858 How many teams get relegated?

Posted by PooingDog on 07 February 2014 - 09:24 PM

Bottom 5 go down according to the newsletter.


Going to be a struggle methinks but certainly not impossible.


Lets enjoy it.

Nothing bitter about about a magnificent win against a championship club pushing for a promotion place. Like pugwash said it could so easily have been a lot more in Dales favour, Leeds isn't that far up the motorway but it must have felt a long way to the travelling fans.


As for the stadium shares? I think you may well just find that Mr Dunphy uses any profit from the FA cup to strengthen the Dales position for league one next season, no doubt Mr Hill will need a bigger budget.


Go and troll some where else ehh

#2797042 Not Happy

East Stand Block H (row P and Q I think).  We are going for the 3 games and meeting Linda outside.  I have 17 seats booked.  It may be worth you meeting us before buying tickets as Paula may have  a spare.


Genuinely not trying to be impolite and inhospitable but why don't you lot ask for your own forum?


You could sort your jollies out on it instead of ours, converse in Welsh instead of the Biffs board and give us (and others) a place to take the pyss out of you when things don't go your way.


Like I say not trying to get rid of you but there does seem enough of you to justify your own forum.

#2794084 Oldham vs Skolars

Posted by PooingDog on 22 September 2013 - 04:38 PM

Glad it's you lot. 


See you next week boys and girls.

Am I the only one who has noticed that this, the best news for many a long year, has been ignored by all the people who were first on here with their anti-Talbot garbage every time there was a reversal?


Success and good news will always find them out!!




Personally even if we don't win promotion I think it'll have been a reasonably successful year and Talbot can be very pleased with his performance along with the rest of the coaching staff and players. But I bet certain posters will disagree, I wonder which posters they'll be  :P

Yes i'm the one on the other bike to Whitebank LOL.

Give us a backie on Sunday Tosh, i don't want to risk my banger outside Whitebank

That explains why Rochdale is so quiet on a Sunday afternoon every now and then. ;)

#2786031 A win is a win...

Posted by PooingDog on 09 September 2013 - 08:39 PM

If I was a Hornets fan I would be slightly hoping to lose at Whitebank, win through against Skolars again and take on Oldham at a neutral final venue where anything can happen. Can't see Hornets beating Oldham twice "on the trot", but can't see Oldham beating Rochdale 3 times "on the trot" either!

Keep taking the Lithium CR, as if any Hornets fan would ever hope to lose against the Biffs (slightly or not).

#2758414 Future Championship format?

Posted by PooingDog on 31 July 2013 - 08:47 PM

It will certainly be a test for the Hornets spend nowt model

Just accept it Lakeside, Hornets want to remain solvent, there's nothing you can do to change that.

Good God glass houses. Have you heard the one about the club run by the butcher, baker, candlestick maker, that now only have the might Gateshead, Gloucester and South Wales below them in the RL stucture.

As opposed to the club run into the ground by the incompetent.

Judge Talbot at the end of the season, we've got five home games in a run before then. Given the budgets and injuries he's had to deal with he's not just done the best he could, but probably the best that could be done.

Kick off is now scheduled for about 8:45 as either hornets or the rfl haven't organized a ref

Hope you don't mind but if we're on the subject of grammar............
