Mostly agree with your comments; in hindsight it is easy to blame the manager which many of us go out of our away to do so. But JHF was right to say he was worried by the teams  ' flatness' and inability to make a proper game of it. I still think the players mainly contributed to their downfall on Saturday; true they were aided by system changes which may have added to their problems. I was struck by the lack of leadership on the pitch not just AT but every player.

On the Millwall game listening to the BBC report on game Rochdale were extremely unlucky not to have won. They played well at Millwall and then us. Sincerely hope it was just a one off and we get an inspired reaction on Saturday. They did at Bradford so they can do it again.
Agree, changes need to be made...

Why? Rochdale were bad, we were terrible. It was like a lower league two game.
It probably will be next season

They will certainly have a fixture congestion come the end of the season. A few more games will probably be called off also, looking at the state of that pitch.

Also, Bury win 2-1 against AFC Wimbledon - 9 points behind us with a game in hand plus we still need to visit Bury.

Sounds like outplayed Millwall too - just like us Grin How could some experts on here get Rochdale so wrong! Its not if they had not seen Dale play on Saturday! Still its only a game. Poor old Glassy boy, wonder if he can dig himself out of the hole he has dug.He can buy us all a drink at AFC.

On another note only 2750 at the game!

All ticket too!! Just because Millwall were visiting! They took 351 fans!

Lincoln meanwhile pulled in 9,444 for a checkatrade trophy game against Chelsea U21’s

If Dale face Spurs in round 5 there will be more than 2750 there! Guaranteed sell out around 9,000 I'd guess. Fair play to Lincoln also, their gates have increased massively in 18 months. It's amazing what a bit of success and a stadium that can fit nearly 10,000 in can do. It will be interesting to see how many make the trip for their first ever visit to Wembley.

Sounds to me like they did a job on Millwall as they did with us on Saturday - No more, no Less - But fair play to Keith Hill for that!

As for the wider picture 1 away win in 12 months gives a more accurate picture than a one off game and accounts as to why they are in the poisition they are. My guess would be they will finish in the bottom 6 - lets hope we are still above them come the end of May.

As others have said the fixture pile up and state of their pitch will also have an impact on them going forward.

On Saturday I thought they looked as good as any League 1 team I've seen this season, bar maybe Peterborough.

I think they will get out of trouble. Bury, MK, Wimbledon will go down IMO, who the other relegation team will be is what I can't decide.

You have avoided the issue - which is Rochdale are in a false position and a better side than their league position suggests!

No I haven't Rochdale are where they are in the league table based on results (espeically their away form) and will end up in the bottom 6 in the table.

How much more clear can I be ?!?!?!

They really are bad though, and fully expect them relegated. Between that game and the Bury home game, the quality really resembled that of lower table league 2 football.

The fact we managed only 1 point out of a possible 6 shows how bad we can be sometimes.

Rochdale were VERY decent against us on Saturday, but like I say every single 'crap team' will play well at some point over a season. Including their win versus us, thats 5 wins from 27 they've managed. And less than a point a game.

To suggest they will stay up based on their performances against us on Saturday and Millwall in the cup both being decent is rather silly! Its almost as you's lot think they've been good the rest of the time…which they clearly haven't been. Jesus, they even did their very best to lose against us after being 2-0 up, only a missed penalty in the last minute saw them get a draw! And that was after we hadn't scored for 6 games!  Grin

I *suspect they are a decent footballing side but with a very soft centre. Perhaps they lack leaders? They certainly lack their top assist player, who they sold to us!

They need to produce top half of the table form for 19 games to stay in this division. Id say that is highly unlikely.

Fair play to them for their win against us though…they played very well!

Not quite they have played fewer games which accounts or at least partially accounts for their league standing. Quite why you ignore this fact is surprising. Also how can you say they will end up in the bottom six given the amount of games they still have to play. That is sheer conjecture on yr part. One could say based on their. recent performances that they might well finish 15th. Why don't you admit your original opinion on Rochdale was in this instance was misplaced? Pretty sure Millwall did!

Thing is, (regarding attendance) Millwall were there last season, and the season before ( on the day when we were trouncing  Orient 4-1 - oh the days!) so no novelty value on either side's part tbf.
