|Ex players who never appeared to give 100% for us|
at 19:17 3 Oct 2019
In light of Pogba strutting about stealing a living last week I was trying to think of ex players here who never appeared to give 100% effort. I don’t mean the likes of George Donnelly, who always gave his all with limited talent or those we signed such as Mark Leonard who were finished really, regardless of effort.
I can’t think of that many really, Binman maybe, Paddy always gave his all but clearly had stamina issues, Jason Peake I recall being criticised for bottling tackles and Paul Williams never tried 100%.
I am struggling to think of many other than Williams that definitely did not try their hardest.
Sure I have opened a can of worms here but my memory is not what it was!!!

Around 2 years ago I remember a football match that made me so emotional I was close to tears, that was a close as I will ever see to that day.
Amazing amazing amazing- what a performance!!!!

Bringing back Sweetmore, is that higher or lower in own goals than announcing our new signing is a billboard!

|Trivia quiz for you all.|
at 19:01 1 Jul 2019
Other half kindly bought me a framed print of Dale shirts through the ages which is really cool, classic kits by goodteamonpaper if anyone is wanting one.
Just thought as a bit of fun would see if we could work out the squad numbers/likely players for the pre squad number days.
I know a fair few but thought 1 answer only each would be good, or else tvos will do the lot 😂😂😂
I would post a photo but I am clueless so.....
34 - 39 number 5
61 - 63 number 4
68 - 69 number 9
77 - 79 number 3
79 - 80 number 6
86 - 87 number 10
91 - 93 number 2 (Pretty sure this was Andy Thackeray)
93 - 94 number 12
95 - 96 number 11
98 - 00 number 18
02 - 04 number 16
07 - 08 number 15
13 - 14 number 22
14 - 15 number 40
17 - 18 number 31
Be interesting to see if they are random or chosen as out stand out players, I am guessing the former!
Have fun guys and girls.
|Danny Mayor- could we be an option?|
at 10:16 27 Jun 2019
Just been reading in the bURY times that he is essentially off as no contact offered and not being paid etc. Currently down at Plymouth in discussions and has another club to see today. He also states he wanted to stay as he has just had a baby and bURY is local for him.
I personally can’t see him coming here as this is probably a come and get me advertisement to all clubs local to bURY and the likes of Salford, Bradford Rotherham, maybe even Blackburn and Preston will all pay more than us.
Certainly worth a phone call though as he will know BBM, we are local, pay our players, will know a fair few of our squad and will probably be an integral part of our team. Also, bearing in mind the affection held for him at Gigg, we could attract a few of there fans, especially if the do go to the wall or have, as likely, a team incapable of winning football matches.
This is not gossip or based on any rumours, merely a few thoughts!

|Worst and best ever 11 and manager - since 2000|
at 15:40 9 May 2019
Bit bored today with weather being so crap here so wondering who we rate is worst and best ever players we have had since the millennium, obviously in natural positions.
I know this has been done before but not to my memory just since 2000.
I never had the honour of seeing big reg etc play so be interested to see who gets named, plus the sick part of my mind likes to remember players I wanted to forget.
Will start with Craig Dawson in best 11 and hope Michael Simpkins was in the 2000’s as he was truely woefully bad.
|Talksport and the chur|
at 22:00 22 Apr 2019
About time we get phoning Cundy and Goldstein asking about the chur and why they don’t chat anymore. That must be about 3 years ago when they asked about HMRC and after that no more chats.
It was comedy genius and I miss all that milky bar spun rambling a lot.
|A Huge Thank You To BBM and TE|
at 17:02 22 Apr 2019
I could not have took another last game nail biter - we are safe now, what a fantastic job these 2 have done in reuniting a team that was broken.
The turn around cannot be underestimated - we were doomed under hill and they have somehow turned it around.
Thanks guys and can’t wait for next season now!!!
P.s this is not a tweak of f g’s nipples in case they are reading!!!
|If BBM and TE get the job - coaching staff.|
at 15:20 7 Mar 2019
Personally, I expect BBM and TE to get the job perminantly if there is an upturn in results and general atmosphere around the players, club and fans, even if we ultimately go down (fighting). With this in mind we will be 2 coaches down effectively, so was just thinking who would fit those roles.
Obviously TE is a lower league legend striker and BBM is more defensive in his playing career. I wonder if the addition of Gary Jones as a coach and Joe T as maybe a coach/ambassador would help with getting unity back at the club, assuming of course they are interested.
Both are legends here, albeit in different ways, and getting that backroom mentality back would benefit everyone. I can’t really think of any other recent players who could add that potential impact, whilst knowing the club inside out. Flicker could but would not take that role, Keith Keane maybe, Michael rose maybe. But to me Jonah and JT could be ideal.
I am only expressing this as a thought/opinion and don’t know anything, but I would see this as a good move, if possible.
