Enter administration with a 12 point deduction looming which would see them back bottom of the Championship.

Mark Palios' new proposal for finishing League One
at 11:26 3 Jun 2020

Sure some of you will have seen this but Mark Palios has submitted his proposal for the way we conclude this season in League One. So happens that it would see his Tranmere side stay up.

https://www.bt.com/sport/news/mark-palios-feels-his-season-ending-proposal-is-fa

Personally, I feel the PPG system with full relegation and promotion is the correct way to deal with this at this point. Not even sure I would play the playoffs and would have the highest place side go up automatically.

Darragh McAnthony has been on Sky this morning with Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher explaining we need football to conclude the season and other systems aren't right and that the EFL have effectively caused this by dragging their feet but he's also stated that if we can't finish the season by playing the remaining games then he'd favour Palios' idea.

Behaviour
at 11:16 26 Apr 2020

Firstly, when reporting abuse, I've told people not to use the report abuse button because it doesn't pinpoint a point, but the whole thread and its much easier to message me or AtThePeake personally if you have any issues. Not once has anyone done that.

One reported abuse email was in my inbox this morning from last night not far off 9pm, one. I have literally just seen it. Then a post appears that we are not fit for purpose. I do not sit on the messageboard 24/7 watching to see if you lot can behave but it seems like a select few people can't help themselves from name calling, insulting others, including us who actually run this place and I can't keep up with it.

We've tried to run this place as it always has been, by letting stuff so until someone complains in which case we take a look at it. That hasn't happened for quite a while and last night was the first time anyone had reported abuse to us.

I have deleted three threads this morning because I am not sitting there reading through pages upon pages of stuff, just to see where someone's stepped out of line.

If you want us to be a lot more strict we will be but it will mean much of what has been posted recently will not be stood for and quite frankly, I don't want to have delete anything. I don't want to have to sit there reading every post on here when my full time work has never been busier.

If you can't post without insulting others, we'll stop you from doing so if that's what you want.

Is it so hard, in what I'm finding to be extremely hard times, to be respectful of each other, even if you don't agree with them?

Your co-operation in keeping this board away from being a nasty place would be appreciated.

Keaton Mulvey joins Runcorn on loan
at 11:50 4 Mar 2020

The loan spell to Ashton Athletic never fully went through and he's joined Runcorn Linnets on loan for a month. Their next game is Colne, where I presume Lewis Bradley and Harrison Hopper are still on loan.

Match Thread: Sunderland v Dale
at 21:34 10 Feb 2020

Some info from Sunderland:

 
Fanzone
 
We have a fanzone in the Beacon of Light for this game. Dale fans are welcome. Do you know any fans that are attending the game that would be interested in doing an interview with us to provide a review of your season so far? If so please can you ask if we can have their contact details to call them in advance?
 
Local Pubs
 
Near the ground - Colliery Tavern, Hilton Hotel. Our fanzone is open for all fans too located outside the East Stand of the Stadium of Light
 
City Centre - I would recommend The Peacock, The Engine Room, Revolution, Greens, Victors
 
Car Parking
 
We have six parking bays available for your supporters that require disabled parking. Please ask your supporters to call 0191 551 5004 to enquire about these.
 
For all other supporters I would recommend St Mary's car park (postcode SR1 3AH). A few other car parks are recommended in the stadium guide link above.
 
Coaches
 
Your coaches will be allowed to park right outside the visitors turnstiles at the stadium. The coaches can then park up right next to the ground (stewards will direct them). The coaches will be allowed to return outside the turnstiles to collect ten minutes before full time.
 
There is great access to the ground so there shouldn't be any issue and it will be a short distance for all your supporters. Do you know how many coaches are coming?
 
Travel Issues
 
There should be no issues on the road for this one.
 
For your fans that might be getting the train to Newcastle to get to Sunderland, they will be using the metro to get to the ground. I would recommend that they get off at St Peter’s Metro station as that is the one nearest to the ground on arrival. They will have to use the Stadium of Light metro to return to Newcastle though (slightly confusing I know).
 
Drums & Flags
 
Unfortunately we don’t allow drums but if your fans want to bring flags our stewards will help them to put them on display on arrival. If any fans are bringing a surfer please let me know.
 
Lift Access for disabled and elderly supporters
 
As our away end is in the upper tier your supporters can use the lift in the Black Cats Bar. This is for fans that struggle with stairs otherwise the fastest way to get up is using the stairs.

Expected a lot more from him than we got. Hampered by injury as well but this surely now frees up another loan space that absolutely has to be filled.

Reporting abuse - site issue
at 13:32 25 Nov 2019

As me and AtThePeake have mentioned, we seem to be having a few issues on the site regarding abuse reports. We get a message every time something gets reported and there's been a massive influx in the past 24 hours which has led us to believe it's a system error instead of being genuine.

If someone does genuinely want to report anything, then please contact us directly instead.

Now the dust has settled
at 09:26 8 Nov 2019

You may or may not have noticed that this website is now being moderated and run by myself, and AtThePeake. Col passed over the keys and waltzed off into the sunset (well, the Trust desk in the Dale Bar) after 20 odd years of being the face that runs the place and we moved in. Cheers Col.

Firstly, with regards the site in full, we've began adding more content which we hope you enjoy reading everything we put, equally, if we're spouting shite, by all means tell us as well. We've started doing match previews, match reports after games and other features such as "Played for Both" as well as the refwatch and TVOS previews that TVOS helps us out with.

What we would like to do is open this up to you lot and ask, are there any features you would like to see? Is there anything you feel is missing? We're very much open to new ideas and value any opinions and are both readily available by PM if anyone has any issues or ideas.

With regards this messageboard, it's always been run with the view that we didn't want to censor people unless it was absolutely necessary. That doesn't change. We all know other boards will delete and ban a lot easier than on here. Maybe we let stuff go that we shouldn't but all we would ask is that everyone at least shows respect for other users, and respect for us as moderators as we both have full time jobs and aren't logged in here all day, every day. We all know what we can and can't post without being told off and slapped on the wrist hopefully.

This week, we've locked a thread because it became exhausting waiting to see what was being posted in case anything came up that went too far. Don't think that happened and thought the thread contained valid and good points from several long standing users of this board and for that reason, we didn't delete it, we wanted those views to and points to stay visible.

We don't envisage having to take much action on this board, it's very rare, and this board does pretty much run itself most of the time and long may that continue.

Hopefully, this place will grow and continue to be the first port of call for many fans in a world taken over by Facebook groups and Twitter Pages.


Cheers.

As you were.
