A quick Bradford City summary of the season:
- Player confidence is rock bottom
- Fan confidence in PP is rock bottom
- We can't score
- We have two keeper who are equally bad
- We don't create anything
- Our best players are dropping like flies to long term injuries
- We're bringing out a bloopers DVD showing the goals we've let in this season
- No leadership whatsoever on the field...
I could go on. Rochdale next up who are doing well this season, our head to head records are probably very even in recent years, we've won a few times at Spotland and I've managed to miss every victory, a good sign as I'm going to watch Bradford Bulls instead tomorrow so I'm not bothering to go.
Rumours that Kyle Reid is coming back to bolster an ever thinning midfield, PP sticking to what he knows. Do I think we'll win? Probably not, I'd take a draw. 1-1

5-0 Rochdale. Good side with a good manager who'll easily get the better of Parkinson.

I do think we'll win, but probably not 5-0.

3-1, maybe - we don't seem to do clean sheets atm. Where I'll stick my neck out is on the scorers. Calvin Andrew hat trick for us, header from a set piece for Bradford (mmm'bop or Rory McArdle being the likeliest suspects).

2437 reported Bantams in a crowd of 4876, resulting in apoplexy from a certain poster... :)

Go firth and multipy (the away fans by 1.5)

Love games v Bradford, fans on the whole are spot on and the atmosphere is ace.

Bradford to defend like Jaques Cousteau, Mmmbop to lead the line.

Low scoring match, 1-0 either way

Phil Parkinson has dropped the undroppable - NO James Hanson.

Not sure on the formation, but we line up like so;

GK: Ben Williams

RB: Stephen Darby
CB: Rory McArdle
CB: Reece Burke
LB: James Meredith

RM: Tony McMahon
CM: Gary Liddle
CM: Lee Evans
LM: Kyel Reid

ST: Steve Davies
ST: Devante Cole

Did well for us in spells. The Barnsley goal was special so surprised by that. Valley Parade is quite a tight pitch though isn't it so not ideal for a winger?

Weak performance and a weak ref to match.

Well played Bradford, masters of our own downfall but that shouldnt take away from your team performance.

Reid man of the match

Rewatching those goals again is a scary thing to do if you're a Dale fan, absolutely disgraceful defending!
