Boringly going off topic about anyone famous you might have sat next to at a game...yes, I have sat infront of Ian Botham at Sc***horpe, and Charlie Nicholas at Arsenal v Spurs (reserve game) at Highbury...but this is the Rochdale game  thread!

That's Sir Ian Botham to you cat! Did he come on as sub at our place I can't honestly remember, I was at the game at The County Ground when he was signed for Scunthorpe cant remember if he got on! If so I have seen Botham play professional football and hit a six, from The Hotel End!

Zomerzet!

It's the right thread, remember Tommy Cannon started all this and he was chairman of Dale so bang on topic and we don't kick off till 3pm.  Wink

My next door neighbour's cousin had a colleague from work who once sat in the same stand as an extra from the tv series 'Triangle' had once sat.

Except for this one Git, should clearly be in the "Extras from Triangle" thread, try and pay a bit more attention in future.

I was sitting at a bar one to one for half and hour with Pele in Antigua at my own wedding (he gatecrashed and not invited  Tongue), 13th May 1998 whilst there was a game going on at Sixfields. I filled him in on the details and he admired my white tux.
I couldn't actually find the score out until the following day. It is a significant comfort of missing 'that' game.

Back closer on topic, my first away game was at Rochdale, 1983, a 1-1 draw in front of about 1,400 and not many Cobblers fans. As a teen I remember feeling as though I was visiting another world! The FA cup anti-climax a particular Rochdale low.

Very close in the head to head but we are definitely overdue a 'W'. They are one of the few teams who I think of being more 4th division than us, despite being far more successful in League One than us recently.

As we've gone slightly off topic; I once walked past Roy Evans as I was coming out of Luton airport and similarly Jimmy Hill
outside Upton Park. I've also seen Alan Moore shopping in Morrisons on several occasions. He never has a trolley only a basket.

He must be the most unassuming, interesting but successful and famous person that we see walking around the town. If he hadn't shunned Hollywood he'd be a multi-millionaire mega star.

He's probably never seen us play Rochdale.

I had breakfast with Geoff Hirst in Brighton a few years ago at the Landsdowne Hotel. Let’s say he’s not going to be the life and soul at any party, he’s no “Party Beast” as they say in Germany.

To add to my breakfast meetings I shared some eggs and bacon with the Hairy Bikers at the Aviator Hotel in Farnborough, they are absolutely top blokes.

Not the Geoff Hurst who scored a hat trick in the world cup final then.😁

But just like us, he loves Northampton.

Great festival, especially if you're a smelly boater. Mark was born in Bolton so another famous local person, see what you did there. Cheesy

I once went on a stag night with Robert Rosario bouncing around Chelsea with a load of page three models.

I used to work at Cropredy Festival, I went backstage to the big marque were all our stuff was and I saw this bloke standing by the entrance. It was one of those "Where do I know you from ?" moments, after a few minutes I remembered where I'd seen him before, it was Robert Plant !

Bumped into him a couple of times there. And Billy Conolly. And Ade Edmondson. Good place for celeb spotting.

Anyway, back to tomorrow's game. I won't be there as I'm on holiday in South Wales. Quite confident of victory though.
2-0.

I sat in front of that tosser from Kasabian when we played Leicester at Sixfields  a few years ago. He had a big minder either side of him and one of them called me a retard. Grin They were lucky I was in a good mood.

Now breakfasts have been mentioned, I was having breakfast in a Manchester hotel about 10 years ago and Steve Perryman was having breakfast at the next table. He didn't have the full English, just cereal, toast and fruit.

My family and my cousins family went for a curry in Hexham about 10 years ago and Brian Johnson and his family came in and sat on the next table. He kept his cap on the whole time.
