Some excellent arguments on here but, as you say 28, the balanced to be made last August was to attract new players to a club with no training ground, portacabin changing rooms, and a pitch in Flood Zone 3! Not sure a few more quid in wages (even it was possible) would necessarily have tempted players who were being courted by other clubs.
Also, Stanley didn’t just get where they are simply by selling. There’s been the odd exception but, for much of their time back in the EFL, Stanley had to watch good players leave for nowt at the end of the season (or half way through in the case of Windass and Crooks) and start again every summer.
It was never easy, and never will be, I suspect. That’s the reality of Accrington Stanley F.C.

Re: Rochdale home thread

It's not the Stanley way and we'll carry on making incremental progress year on year, just like we have for the previous 50 years without you.

Not sure this is correct. Club was in a state prior to the Second Coming both on and off the field.

[QUOTE=Exile on Spencer St;1227008], Stanley had to watch good players leave for nowt at the end of the season

at least those days are over as it would have eventually killed stanley off as a league club.

think fans of different eras look at the club differently. older ones in length of there support are really happy doing it the stanley way. fans like me who came a few seasons post non league would be happier with more investment in the playing side as well as ground improvements and new fans that the club has gained over the last 12 months or so would like all money to go on players. might be more than a bit of a generalisation but it seems that way to me.

That's the correct way to put it Monkey.
I just think it would be a crying shame to have battled all season to cement the club in League One only to let go because facilities are more important than the players.
Anyone with a modicum of common sense can see we need a new spine to the team. A keeper, a dominant centre half, a midfielder with craft graft and guile and a centre forward.

Re: Rochdale home thread

No one can disagree, 28, but, at this stage, we’re all going to have to rely on the ‘spines’ of our existing players to retain League 1 status.
They have it in them and hope they get the chance to show the grit to grind it out these last few games.

Aye, but next week when there’s a better film showing, in which cinema would most people prefer to watch it?
