Re: Telford V Darlington

I've been very much in the AA in camp to date, but got to say I'm wavering more and more. On paper (before the Charman sale) this was the strongest squad we've had since we've been at this level. But we've never looked like consistent challengers even after we've brought in the likes of Ellis, Coope...

Re: Telford V Darlington

Important game today at the start of a run of 5 games (Telford, Kettering, Guiseley, Chester & Gloucester) where we really need 12+ points if we are really going to potentially challenge for that final playoff position. Missed out on what would have been a good point against Kidderminster to a last ...

Re: Luke charman

I think the latter Jeez will definitely mean Rochdale will have to push for a sell-on clause if they ever did look to cash in. Imagine (as an example) being hit with a £1million bill for a player you potentially sold for say £300k! Great bit of business by the Club and the player. I'm not too worri...

Re: Player update - Rose, Charman et al

Jake Lawlor now released by Hartlepool. Guess it will all depend on whether he wants to stay Full time or not, but I hope we're in for him. Wouldn't surprise me if a team up the road would also be interested. Definitely be a big boost to the squad for the 2nd half of the season if we can get it don...

Re: Kidderminster Game

I'm sure there was a non-league club which netted 7 figures recently on a sell-on clause. Wasn't Chorley was it?
I think York netted seven figures when Ben Godfrey was sold by Norwich to Everton for c.£25m.

Re: Luke Charmans value

Interesting to see Carver sign for Hartlepool for a “reported” £20k fee. He is more experienced than Luke for sure but is a few years older so will be interesting to see where our valuation sits. Personally, I believe £50k is realistically probably the most we could expect even though I think he is...

With Charman out of the Farsley game I'd expect us to stick with playing some variation on 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1. Still plenty of good players in the team below and capable of beating teams in this league but we really need the likes of Cassidy, Hatfield, Lambert and Rivers to step up with some goals and...

Re: Charman ban stands

All due to the fact that Darlo couldn’t prove he didn’t elbow Curtis. Quite why Curtis has got away with any retrospective action also shows how warped the FA disciplinary system works. An elbow wouldn't have been part of report. We had to provide there was no act of violence that Charman did not "...

Re: Farsley game

Since its been quiet this week on the Charman front and at the moment he is still our player, has there been any news on the appeal against his ban? Would be very handy to have him available for the Farsley game if it goes ahead.

Hope we give up on the 3/5 at the back.
