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!
Drilling, can you not see the (rather silly) hypocrisy on your part?
No one (certainly not myself) is basing opinions about Dale on seeing one performance on Saturday - except you!
Games in hand ( a lot!) two performances against Millwall (now) a win at Donny, coupled yes, with a fine performance against us, suggests they are considerably better than some are giving them credit for.
You still (to make yourself feel better I guess) keep trying to consign their win on Saturday (ooh the downright audacity) against the mighty Cobblers...as a 'one off'!

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.
It isn't one win in twelve months - you've been told, now behave!

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.

Ticket holders for last nights game get priority for tickets to the trip to Wembley (or Rodney Parade)!

Perhaps they weren't confident of getting through....or perhaps they were yet are confident that they'll get Newport in the next round!!

Either way, 2400 home fans is pretty poor!! Especially coming off the back of a win at the Mighty Cobblers!  Grin

Rochdale are at home in the next round and the game is live on TV. If they get a draw they may get to Wembley but not yet.

So no facts, just opinions then!

Across a number of threads you are making yourself look as bigger tw*t as 78 is with his easier games rubbish.

Let people have an opinion that differs from yours

If people attend games or not it does not make them any less of a supporter!

Christ, sometimes it's hard not to rise to the bait on this board these days - it's a shame that this is what this site has become as it used to be somewhere that reasonable supporters could discuss the cobblers in a respectful way.

Yes, but 2,400 isn't a bad attendance. If you consider the weather, size of the town, close proximity to Bury, Oldham and...


...ok, it's s***e!  Grin

What were some of us saying about Dale?
Though the pitch wasn't in the best of nick!  Cool

Rochdale seems to be doing pretty well and 1-0 up to boot. Ex Cobblers scorer too.

To be fair Rochdale look very impressive as they did against us the other week. It’ll be very interesting to see how they cope with their 6 (!) games in hand on us - if they keep playing like this there’s a good chance that they could avoid relegation. Must say I was impressed with their right back rafferty at our place and he’s playing well today - perhaps we signed the wrong fullback!

I'm glad the transfer window is closed!! They've already banked over 200k in prize money for reaching the 5th round, TV revenue from a sell out today and now a trip to Wembley and more TV revenue I'd guess!!

The last thing Rochdale need is a replay.

They look a decent side and with the games in hand could be in a false position. Fixture congestion could take its toll though.

Dale looked very good against the Spuds. If they play like that they will stay up. They'll get beat at Wembley but fair play to them.

Agree with the above comments, thought Rochdale fully deserved a draw and good luck to them in the replay.

Where was Calvin Andrew? not even on the bench, and he played so well against us.

etc.

Injured according to the DT. Would say they really missed him. Hope he is back for the replay.

Enjoyed Rochdale matching the efforts of Spurs. Well done them. They will however be playing three games a week soon enough and if they do stay up they will certainly deserve it.
