Comfortable 6-0 win for the Bantams.

Hilda starts and gets a straight red before the half hour mark. Facey has a shocker.

For those that don’t agree, check out my Doncaster prediction.

You were wrong there as well! Ok we lost so you got that bit right. Sounds as if you had a disappointing Xmas.?

So after not wanting any changes, do we go with O'Donnell straight into the fire or with Cornell for this one?

We don't always lose there...usually, yes! Won on my first visit a few years back when Doc Deuchs scored...2009?

No, you can't get direct from King's Cross to Bradford. However, hardly dificult ( if not pricey from London). Direct to Leeds...£4.20 rtn from there to Forster's Square - 12-15min every half hour or so!

Staying over. Corn Dolly, just a few minutes walk from ground and Forster's Square station is friendly, good ales and usually the BCFC fanzine for sale. Haigy's on Manningham Rd has since shut down!

Great pub and friendly respectful Bradford fans every time I’ve been - but no NTFC idiots please

There is a direct train from Kings Cross to Bradford. Grand Central at 10.38. Can't see any coming back.

Apologies if already started, couldn't find the topic.

I'm heading up from London, there's some direct trains from Kings Cross to Leeds and then can head from there to Bradford.
Is that the best way?

Cheers

Good morning Cobblers.

We have been very inconsistent of late and shipping far too many goals. Our home form has been poor this season generally. Although we have managed to win 2 of the last 3 home games, we have still shipped 8 goals in those 3 games with 4-3 Victory over Rochdale, 3-2 Victory over your friends Oxford and a 3-1 defeat to the Posh.

Could be a good time to play us. Our defence has been depleted recently with injuries. On Saturday at Yeovil for example, we had to play our 3rd choice keeper and only 1 first choice defender was fit enough to start, and even he, Kilgallon, went off injured at half time.
We are a completely different team under McCall, whereas Parkinson played with a more pragmatic approach and we were hard to break down, McCall mentality is it doesnt matter how many we concede, as long as we score more than the opposition.

The key to our promotion bid is to keep hold of Charlie Wyke and hopefully bring in some quality defenders to shore up at the back.

Good luck for the rest of the season, after Saturday of course, genuinely hope you stay up

Safe journey for all who travel, and for those who enjoy a pre match pint, plenty of friendly establishments on North Parade and Manningham Lane to welcome you

Presuming no new signings come in i'd go for:

               O'Donnell
Facey-Taylor-Poole-Buchanan
Pereira-O'Toole-Grimes-Powell
                Crooks
                  Long

Although I suspect Hoskins will start instead of Pereira.

Smith to play instead of Powell if he isn't fit

Would like to see this selection but suspect it will be less open than this .
Crooks will swap with JJOT and I doubt Powell and Hilda will start together .
More likely one of Foley or Hoskins will start

Bus is £20 plus tkt to game plus Euston to Northampton whatever that is! The only real draw back the buses leave 6fields at approx 9’ish!

Obviously the ones in the pub! While you fester on a supporters bus, which actually allows you to experience precisely zilch of Bradford...or meet their fans!

In my experience there was only ever one person getting Demontagnac sent off.

Am sure you are right about twats (sic). I don’t think I am alone Lips Sealed. You know how it is on here! Not sure if you and your lot should portray yourselves as the Praetorian Guard of the singer section!

I'm sure you came on here (or it could've been the Chron) last season and said the same - then proceeded to give us a pasting!
