Gary Dicker: Joins Dale on a free transfer

The 27-year-old has been without a club following his release by Brighton at the end the 2012/13 campaign.

The Irishman says he is looking forward to playing under Dale boss Keith Hill.

He told the club's official website: "The move came about pretty quickly and I'm looking forward to getting back out on the pitch.

"Because you haven't signed for a club straight away people think you are holding out for this or that but it wasn't the case. I spoke to a few clubs but for whatever reason things didn't work out.

"I spoke to Keith Hill and thought about the move for a bit. I spoke to a few players who have played under him and they all think highly of him so I think it'll be a good move for both of us.

"I have good memories playing against Rochdale and they have always put up a good show against the teams I have played in. There was Wembley and two great games when I played for Brighton, we drew two apiece so I know what Rochdale is all about.

"I'm looking forward to working with the gaffer too, I know him from his time at Rochdale and at Barnsley and you pick it up as a player how certain teams play. Keith Hill's sides play good attractive football and that will suit me."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
