Ive a dislike for Rochdale. It was bad enough when we had to play a game there due to our pitch being screwed, but this really does make us look like a small backwater to them.

Are we sure they haven't just made an error and said the fixture is at Chorley instead of us? I can't find reference to our match on their fixture list...

As long as the club benefits financially what's the problem? Classic case of cake and eat it! 

Want to attract top players to Town, don't want to contribute .

How many Bradford fans will turn up for £15 as opposed to £10, beating in mind they should bring 1600-2000 terriers took over 2000 to Bury yesterday at £10

To be fair if I go it will be to watch The Shaymen and have a look at the new faces. Is it any worse paying £12 at The Shay for Rochdale or £10 at Brighouse

So a starting line up of 9.9 first teamers and 1.1 reserves/youth team? :D

Worth the £12 alone to see that!

Maybe they have another Lois Marnard trialist we can get.

You would expect they would bring the better team to the match against the better team, so ours, not Chorley's. What's the issue?

I couldn't name a single Rochdale player (and i am surely not the only one) so it wouldn't matter if they brought their first 11, U21's or the bleeding catering team. If they have a squad of 30 players and we get 15 of them at the Shay  and the other 15 go to Chorley what does it matter?
