    tune out of what ????? This lot cannot even pass a ball ???? They have little or no desire............ I mean that 2nd half at Tranmere was as bad as anything pre Trueman or from Newport away onwards last season ........... this lot simply don’t care so how can you do anything at all with a group like that ???
    Sadly the majority of that lot did the same last season and no doubt will shizzer on everyone again :(
    My god away support like that and they cannot get themselves up for a battle ............ embarrassing

    Where has this now or never attitude come from?
    If he cant fix it in a window, give him the windows he needs.

    it is naff knowing there’s little we can immediately, but this is a rare case of doing nothing is better than something.

    we have sacked 8 managers in 5 years… year on year we have gone lower and lower. Why do people think the same process will suddenly fix our problems??

    the guy has got 3 promotions. Hes the most experienced manager we have. If i was sparks id give him the benefit of the doubt.

    He needs at least 2 seasons to sort the mess created by others out :(
    I mean imagine coming into work having to work with that lot ............. a bunch who ain’t up for it not one leader amongst them ........ and Adams somehow must make it work ?????

    Seriously the folk who want Adams gone will no doubt be calling for the next managers head within the next few months ............it’s about time we broke that cycle and all get behind a long term project like what happened with Parky............. I mean this chopping and changing as really worked hasn’t it ????

    Speaking of not passing a ball, why has Watt morphed into Callum Guy when we had him on loan here? Them bizarre overhead kick clearances up field, they are the only two players I’ve ever seen do it on a regular basis. It’s so frustrating and never going to result in a successful pass.

    I'm not sure, like others, I can wait another 18 months. For those that are able, good on you.

    I'm not attending all home games, I plan for away games and look for alternatives on the day. I'm not enjoying it as much as I should and I'm happy to spend my disposable income elsewhere.

    I've watched us since 86 under the likes of Docherty but I feel such apathy towards the club, at this moment.

    Another 1.5 seasons of shuffling chairs and playing personal on the back of sustainability does not drive my ambition. The playing over the last 16 months is average to say the least, I don't see how it changes.

    No where have I said he should be sacked. Not once. Can you find it?
    Adams needs to start proving his worth and the money is he on. There is nothing wrong with the owners asking him to do something to arrest the current slide. We have gone nearly a full half season of fixtures now with just 2 wins. McCall would have done better than that no doubt about it.

    Adams needs time and windows but you don’t get that in January. You get a couple of players in other sides don’t want and you shift on what you can. Usually very limited. If you think this squad is going to be night and day different come February you’re mistaken.

    So Adams get some results now and over January and let’s see where we are. Nothing much will change in one window. Arrest the slide. Give us a style of play we can be proud of and at least show some more signs of encouragement. You were given a 3 year contract and currently we are on course to waste one year of it

    It’s not the same squad at all. Stop saying it is. Have a look back. It’s completely different to last summers side.
    Forget the McCall comment. Concentrate on the fact adams is doing poorly with a squad he 50% assembled

    so what’s the answer get rid and this continues to go on year after year ????
    The last stable manager we had was Parky and what happened then ???? Success
    Since then we have gone through off the top of my head 8 managers since 2016 ........ and have gone from a solid League one side into this mess now ................

    Your not listening. I understand what your saying but will the general supporting Bradford City fan give Adams and our leaders another 18 months?

    did he assemble it though ????
    As for a completely different side sorry but a big part of McCalls squad remains in fact ........ 7 of the squad who went to Tranmere played a part in McCalls last game at Oldham so to say it’s completely different is not the truth is it ?????

    If only Sparks hadn’t opened his gob pre season, maybe we’d all be a bit more patient and understanding…….

    Changing managers season after season is a disaster, but I think saying you don’t have enough winners in the side is a slippery slope, Adams needs a better squad to work with and a bit more luck, even Parky got lucky stumbling on a goal scorer like wells in L2.

    Our side is crying out for a couple of nasty never say die types, there’s a few too many wet lettuces out there.

    Not getting it are you. Neither wanted to be here, but came because we offered them the most money and nothing else. Doyle pissed on Swindon from great height with them paying for him in January then walking in May. Vaughan went on strike as soon as Tranmere came sniffing. It's nothing to do with their ability or the role they were asked to play, and all down to massive flaws in their charactures.

    The squad that T&S turned into winners overnight, then only went on a bad run after the players that Turnbull signed in January had time to bed in and ruin the work they had done ?
