Hurrrrahh.

Sort of feel like Bradford may have been better doing this a tad earlier and getting Darrell Clarke in before Cheltenham. Who we thinking then?

Also It did not take a genous but I did call in pre-season you’ll go backwards with that Dinosaur this season.

I wanted Clarke but as you say he's gone to Cheltenham. I think Leam Richardson would be my number one pick.

Suddenly, our defeat at Tranmere has become a good result. We should have done it earlier and contacted Bruno before Hudders stepped in.

Genuine question Bradford fans…. Is the squad good enough for a promotion push?

Apart from Lewis, Pattison and Cook do any other players stand out at this level?

Inevitable. He's whatever was around before dinosaurs.

They are pretty much the 3. Some have had very good careers like Smallwood and McDonald but are past their best.

Best of luck to Mark and a happy retirement. A nice bloke out of football but well behind the times with his tactics. Time to enjoy a long retirement in Cheshire.

No is the short answer, last year the reliance on Cook was ridiculous and fortunately he had the season of his life. The same can be said again this season, if Cook doesn’t score who does? Point being the squad as a whole doesn’t contribute enough which you’d expect from a promotion side.
We made a massive deal out of playing 352 with wingbacks over the summer, it failed so badly we dumped it early doors but had recruited a lopsided team over the summer that had no wingers till late on, no striker brought in to match Cook, Critchlow and Scott Banks weren’t replaced. Today is a result of seeds sown over a badly planned preseason.

Agree. Wanted him gone for a while but never really disliked him. Suppose he'll be happy enough doing the odd bit for SKY and the like.

Also handing out new contracts to players who aren't good enough, like Hendrie and Ridehalgh then getting rid a few months later anyway. We only needed a few tweaks to that playoff team and we completely changed the formation. Bringing in Ash Taylor is a sackable offence for Stephen Gent.

I like the sound of Richardson, who’s from Leeds originally if that means anything, another fuddy duddy will have fans moaning in no time, would be happy with a younger guy.

Sparks should follow him out the door. Quite how that clown is keeping his job with his track record is truly astounding.

Walker is a very clever player but we have a very big squad of ordinariness, all signed by Hughes on contracts.

I could see the Cowleys being interested in the Bradford job.

What kind of football do they play? Hughes' football was largely dreadful. Haven't had decent, attacking football at City for years. Hoping to see it return with the next appointment.

He’s been linked with a few jobs but surely Mike Williamson would be a great target for Bradford.

Go for the guy at Crawley, doing a sterling job with basket case owners.

(Failing that I know of a nice bloke locally who might shore up your defence, not much compo to be paid either)

Right decision from Bradford. He was crap, they'll be much better now he's fucked off.

I remember when the Bradford lads on here got themselves in a giddy tizz because he once controlled the ball really well when the ball landed near him on the touchline. The height of the Hughes era.

Bradford have wasted no time and appointed a new manager already:
