Oi, behave! There was nothing wrong with those sideburns ...... oh wait!Some cracking barnets on show there, as well as those bloody sideburns on Conn! Loved those 2 saves by Jennings, but looking at that packed sardine crowd gave me some anxiety; can't imagine being packed in there.
Thanks for the vid.
Surely this is the best idea.Even easier would be to just move the match to Wembley. That benefits Rochdale too because they'll make more money from a game at Wembley than they will playing at home. We could even offer to pay for free coaches to bring the Rochdale fans down.
Like I say, easier, cheaper for us, and makes more money for Rochdale. Win-win really. I suppose you can say it's not fair for them to lose their home advantage but surely there has to be some rule about if the home side are unable to provide suitable facilities to host the game then it can be moved elsewhere?
The Fa can overturn the venue for ours in extraordinary circumstances. Not sure where you got the closet stadium thing from.Not sure why the possibility of it being moved to Wembley is even being discussed. It was established (over and over again) in the Newport County thread that the FA closed that avenue a few years ago. If it gets moved (which I don't expect) it will be to Bury/Oldham or whatever stadium up that way is considered the nearest neutral venue. And if its a bigger ground that Spotland, Rochdale will not make any extra money from it because the FA put a stop to that too.
Read the Chairman's latest comments last night. He seems very defensive about it - somewhat understandable - but made it clear he would be receptive to us paying for the pitch to be relaid, which annoyed me a bit. Hopefully none of that is necessary but I still think the original tie will be postponed if the weather forecast is accurate.
We used to have to clear the cows offI've played on some hum dingers in my Sunday/non league days, including one almost entirely littered with cow pats... But that's just ridiculous. You'd be safer playing on tarmac.
Offer to lay the pitch... Would just be petty cash to us. If I was a player I'd cover it myself. Then you retain the magic of an away tie to a lower club.
