|All this money Brexit Party types are saying Farage has took off of them|

Can they go after him? I know they're not the KGB or anything, but I've seen screenshots of people claiming they've ploughed over £10k into pamphlets, badges, possibly even armbands or whatever.
More fool them in many ways, but doesn't this just add more fuel to the raging inferno that is the bloke's greedy pocketed approach to a single issue, he has no intention of actually delivering?
I'm assuming stuff was put in writing, rather than they just willing volunteered assuming they'd got a gig running in this election etc?

Well it wasn't pretty was it?
Hard to feel we really played well at all tonight. But whether it was groundspotters ticking off Spotland on the assumption they'll never come back, already having tickets and a sense of adventure, to make up a third of the attendance or so and totally drown out the hardy regulars for chunks of the game was brilliant.
It's another odd, compact and really friendly place to go.
If we don't sign a right back, or Lambert doesn't get over whatever it is that keeps Donacien from deputising we will end up losing a few more games. Rochdale had a decent enough keeper, and a number 8 who eventually dropped back. But what he allowed them to do was push up two wingbacks every time and send balls over the top of our defence and it nearly worked.
We could easily have done similar with much better players. But Judge couldn't get anything out of a young kid who was admittedly full of confidence, and Danny the Fisher Price Rowenaldo had a few chops in his arsenal, but until his lovely flicked goal, didn't look much better.
The Hollywood passing and shots from angles only really work when they sometimes find their man or aren't ten yard too far from making anything of note happen. That seemed to grind on the crowd after a while.
Too much bunching up and allowing Rochdale to compress the space made me feel really sorry for the strikers. Norwood's lack of grace and silly booking was annoying. McShane wound him up a treat and just hit the floor as soon as he could to make sure he got carded.
We were a bit unlucky at the end in terms of Georgiou and Dozzell not finding a man free in the box. But really either of the chances which hit the wood work from Garbutt and Woolfenden deserved goals, even if our open play didn't all that often.
The ref and the nearside lino in the second half got loads of grief. There was a baffling moment when Edwards was 2 on 1 and the spare man trampled him, only to be waved as play on. Likewise a few offsides weren't given or even able to be given because the lino was miles off the pace. I just think we'll have to accept that's how bad things are down here.
If we are top of a league without ever really laying siege to a team or blowing them away, it doesn't matter ultimately, but it'd be nice to think something is going to click soon and we'll give Darren Ferguson something else to whinge about as well a lesson in how to win your own games first.
Chambers at the end erupted towards us gesturing and shouting, it felt like he was almost telling us off. You could see how much it meant to him. He must have pumped his fist until he ran dry and was all over his defensive colleagues congratulating them.
I'm still not sure about the Morris dancing thing at the end either. Good luck to those getting home well in to tomorrow.

It's surprisingly well written given it's from the MEN.
Seems the inevitable repercussions for the town are now really kicking in. Suffice to say the likes of Rochdale also take a massive dip in revenue for the derby game they'll now miss too. I totally understand the argument that Bury massively overspent and some of the sympathy has neglected this, and a lot of people have used it to support Evans and the like. However, had this been a much bigger club nothing would have gone this way, especially to besmirch the Premier League brand.

One chalked off, then we take the lead.
Not sure about this gif, isn't Hulk a racist now?

Symptomatic of the wider issues, but they're really sticking out. Compared to the anonymity of Rowe in the middle, I'm not really sure if we're getting badly wrong again or Rotherham have us sussed. Their pressing and big men up top springing out from getting 10 behind the ball is working perfectly against us.
We look slow and disorganised across the thirds. That first five minutes their keeper looked like someone had sat on his controller, after that we've barely put anything near him bar easy catches. Lambert has some work to do to get this sorted.
I wonder if switching from 3 to 4 at the back so quickly has unbalanced us rather than them ironically.
