Is it pronounced, Roach-dale, or Rock-dale?

Whatever it is, should we have fear of this football juggernaut?

Neither... its Rotch-dale :)

As to fear, no we shouldn't fear anyone. Don't really know anything about them.

Yep; think we discussed this before when talking about dwindling crowds. There are simply too many clubs in the same area for everyone to have big fanbases.

We have; but, dropping down, there are even more I didn't think about (still learning English history & geography, ya know!)

It was crazy enough, when it was Liverpool, both Man clubs, Bolton, Burnley, Blackpool, etc., we competed against. Always somebody, wanting to knock Blackburn down another rung or two
