    ... isn't Keith doing well?

    We've 7 more points after half season than ever before at this level with a squad put together on the usual limited budget.

    Barnsley deserve massive credit too for competing in the division above with a policy that's much the same as our own - do as much as you can with what you've got and don't chuck money at it.

    You are doing great not a massive hill fan but I'd love to see you promoted you and scunny. Rather you than Bolton bradford or sheff united.

    Good for you I just looked at the table and see you are in 4th must admit not been looking too closely this year as it gives a bad taste when I see where Sheff U are. I'd be happy for you to come up. Never had any dislike of Rochdale as a team. Not your managers greatest fan but he does seem to suit you.

    Keith Hill and Rochdale seems to be a perfect fit for both parties. You've had a fantastic first half of the season and there's no reason to think it can't get even better.

    You're having a great season. Credit where it's due, Keith has the right fit at Rochdale.

    What an achievement it would be if you could get promoted.

    Anybody but dem blades, Sheffield Yooooouuunited, from "down-town" S2 and all of the other cringey stuff they come out with on Radio Sheffield.

    You've got to understand though, it'll be difficult for some on here to give Keith praise considering he often played players out of position and then had a go at the fans for not managing our expectations when we lost to footballing giants like Birmingham and Coventry. We're proving at present (as indeed is Keith at Rochdale oddly enough) that you don't need bags of money to win football matches.

    Your home record has been fantastic this season and I'm pretty sure you'll finish in play-offs, don't like Keith but he clearly likes it at your place, and he's successful there so good luck to him

    The ideal would be a 90th minute winner in the playoff final :)

    Hill is doing a fantastic job at a level he is confortable at with a club that embraces him for good and bad. It's a match made in heaven (well Rochdale). I wish him and you every success as Rochdale fans deserve some success. Hill should stay with you whatever happens as he's already shown he struggles to handle the pressure outside his comfort zone. Bert of luck.

    I still have fond memories of David Hopkin's last minute goal against them in the 96/97 division 1 play-off final.

    Made all the sweeter by the fact that we'd gone up automatically.

    It's a remarkable job that he continues to do at Dale. I hope you join dem blades and Bradford in gaining promotion.

    You're doing fantastic. You've had a few good seasons but the way you started this one it looked like the bubble had finally burst and that at some point you might look for a new manager (dunno how much faith your fans had in Keef to turn it around) but you are flying again now. How come the start of the season was so different to previous seasons and where you are currently? Did you have to rebuild in the summer and wait for new guys to gel or were your usual reliable guys simply off form?

    You've got one of Keef's famous second halves to the season to come...

    The Blunts ain`t going up, they`ve no staying power and I like seeing them being the 7th rated team in Yorkshire.

    Scunny's having their wobble. They've been due one. I'm not convinced by Sheffield United just yet. They've largely beaten teams at the wrong end of the table or teams down to 10 or 9 men. Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I get the feeling that it's going far too well for them.
