Rochdale supporters must be black and blue from the amount of pinching themselves they have had to do in the last two seasons allowing them to blend in nicely with the club's home kit.
He said: "We have had a Mbt Shoes North London great season and I think we have proved everyone wrong. Everyone was tipping us to go down and I think we have massively overachieved. We have to be happy with that."
All that has changed now, though, with the club having put into motion a rollercoaster ride which is showing no signs of slowing down.
He said: "We were happy when we reached 50 points and we have just kept pushing on. We are just outside the play offs now and we could make it in. The lads are really proud. We have such a small squad and we have done really well to get where we are."

Of that barren stint, 37 years had been spent rattling around in the basement, meaning there were generations of fans that had never seen their side compete higher than the fourth division.

They have won 17 of their 42 fixtures this season, picked up 64 points and currently find themselves sat on the fringes of the play off places with the finishing line edging into view.
Dale could be forgiven for accepting their lot this season, with the play offs having been unkind to them in the past and offered experiences they will not want to repeat any time soon.
a shot at the Championship.
This season was always going to be one to remember, given that most around Spotland had forgotten what the third tier looked like, but it could be about to produce the most remarkable of endings.
"Peterborough is definitely a massive game as well. They beat us at their place, but I don't think it's out of our reach to beat the big teams. We will just have to see what happens."
"We have definitely got that," said Holness.
"We have been thinking about the play offs since the start of the season, but people tipped us to go down. I suppose that has been better for us because we have played with no pressure, no one expected us to do anything.
Keith Hill's men have silenced those critics spectacularly, though, with any pre season thoughts that Dale might wilt having been firmly dashed.
"The play offs are actually quite daunting if you think about it, because they are all big teams in there. But we have proved ourselves this season. We have done the double over Southampton, we beat Huddersfield earlier in the year and drew with the MK Dons. Hopefully we could beat any of those teams on the day, if it came down to it."
Tales from the Dale
appears to be in their own hands, with games against fellow high fliers Peterborough and a potential play off decider against Bournemouth on the final day still to come.
their exploits in recent years having helped to put the club back on the map in a football saturated part of the world.
He said: "Everyone just goes to the big teams, Manchester United and Manchester City, but Bury have done well recently as well, so that's good for the local area. It's nice to have teams up there and being recognised.
"The gaffer and Flicker manager David Flitcroft have always pushed that on us, the winning mentality. They tell us to go out and achieve what we can, because we know we can do it. The lads have just got on with it this season, pushed on and have done really well."
Rochdale are an ideal example of what can be achieved with a canny boss, a hard working squad and a winning mentality.
Just two points separate Dale from the top six at present, with a weekend defeat to Brentford having seen a short lived spell inside the play off places come to an abrupt end.

Given their shoestring budget and lack of experience away from their League Two comfort zone, few gave Dale much of a chance among the League One ranks this season with the likes of Southampton, Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday for company.
Holness, though, is still willing to give the promotion lottery another shot, saying: "We're always happy to give them a go. Previously we have lost to Stockport in the final and got knocked out by Gillingham, and last year it was a big relief to go up automatically.
"It could be the decider, but hopefully we will keep winning and they will lose a few games and it won't need to go down to the last game of the season," Holness said on a meeting with the side currently directly above Dale in the table.
Whatever happens this season those involved in the squad have helped to write their own piece of Dale history and Holness admits that is something they can be proud of.
Under the radarPressed on whether he believed a promotion push was possible when Dale opened their campaign, Holness added: "Amongst the lads we knew that we were a good team and we knew that we could get right up there.
"I think it helps because there is no pressure on us whatsoever. No one expects you to do anything so when you do get a few results, you go under the radar. Now we are right up there and people are thinking Rochdale are actually a decent team."
