    A genuinely good guy, great to deal with from a business perspective and a nice fella too. Such a shame he's no longer with the club.

      Just curious: why the sudden urge for a tribute thread anyway?

      My recollection of Rogers is that he was a reasonable standard League Two midfielder with us, no more, no less. He didn't do a lot wrong on the pitch, but he certainly wasn't what you'd call a crowd favourite. As midfielders go, he was neither outstandingly creative, nor a true enforcer, ballwinning sort. He came in, was awarded the captaincy- presumably because of his successful spells doing the job elsewhere and because managers tended to feel he was a steady, reliable, non-shit-stirring type, and was fortunate enough to be part of another winning side.

      He was alright, but is nowhere near club legend status in my book. There were other players in that Micky Adams side who made far more impact. In my opinion, of course.
      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Like Guy Butters? Why would you begrudge a man a tribute thread after so many years service to the club?

      really? i thought he was a rock and backbone of the team, and of course he'd had more success before he joined us

      I agree. I didn't really see him as a leader on the pitch or much of an influence in the way we played....BUT...I respect that MA knows far more than me and saw the qualities he brought to the team.

      any player with us for more than a couple of years at Withdean would have been part of at least one successful team, and to many on here this deserves the title "Legend". Not many of these "legends" can match the achievements of Sully, Foster, Ward, Lawrenson and Horton (and Andy Rollings who is still a great ambassador for the club),
      never forget what Stanley, Archer and Bellotti did

      It really wasn't an attempt to slate the guy. I just always found him slightly underwhelming as a player. I thought both Carpenter and Oatway were more influential, if we're talking midfielders of that era. Perhaps he was one of those understated sorts that you don't really notice, I don't know. That being the case though, I stand by the point that he's hardly a club legend.

      Re his success prior to the Albion: perhaps that's why I never really got the Rogers thing...maybe my expectations were a little high based on his Wigan career?

      Where's the "begrudge"? I just wondered what had prompted the request after all this time, that was all.

      He may have been a bog average player but Bobby Bin-Laden loved him with an all consuming passion.

      Like it says in my initial post, we're on the eve of our Premier League debut, Dodge worked tirelessly both on and off the pitch to help the club get to where we are, was/is liked and respected by many of us and has ended up having his part airbrushed out of the club's recent history. He'll be gutted by that. This was just a small attempt to address the balance on NSC, that's all. Respect to @Bozza for allowing this appreciation thread, and to fellow posters for being scrupulous in not touching upon any speculation on whatever events may have led to his sudden departure from the club with no more than a very brusque club statement. Whatever the circumstances surrounding his departure, he surely deserved better than that. And great to read that Dodge is reported to be in good form and has been seen out jogging recently with FDM and at cricket with Dick Knight. Top man!
