    No but has fully admitted he didn’t sign Mo Salah. He has a team that picks the players to recruit that can fit his playing style and what he wants.

    Bradford City are in the far ages if they think Adams should do everything.

    Has to be the most backwards club in football.

    Tough one that. Oldham are really bad.

    Maybe, we are not that bad but we are bad.

    But honestly, what do you expect? If workmates or employees of yours went public and criticised the way your company was being run, they'd be in the manager's officer pronto. Come on mate, we're all grown up enough to know that it's all PR and marketing. What matters is out on the pitch - watch that space!

    I'm having a go at the players who talk a good game on the radio/newspaper or twitter but fail to deliver on the pitch.I hear it every week from these players,last season the same and quite frankly I'm bored with it.

    Absolutely get what you're saying but what we're hearing is just the PR they've been told to parrot. Come the day when one of our players goes in front of a camera to say I think we'll lose this sat'y, cos we've been a bit shit in training all week and so and so are a better team. It would be surprisingly refreshing - but it ain't gonna happen any time soon.

    I'm saying that its not always his final decision.

    You seriously need to get out of 1960.

    No sensible club would bring in a player the manager was opposed to. Neither would the player himself want to sign for a manager who did not want him and risk ruining his career

    This honestly makes no sense to me

    What exactly do you expect the players to say when they're not performing

    Failing to deliver on the pitch is a bad thing in it's own right it doesn't really matter what the players are saying

    If they're talking a good game but then not even trying that's a massive problem

    But talking a good game and trying but not succeeding is the best that you're going to get when they're being trotted out each week to explain how they are going to win the next game of football

    I genuinely have no idea what your complaint is other than the fact we didn't win our recent games

    "So did you find me a striker"

    "Yes Theo Robinson"

    "He's not that great"

    "No but he's done well in the past so should we sign him or not"

    "I'd prefer someone who is ready to go right now"

    "Yes but we're running out of time and he's the best we've got so far"

    "Look if he's the only one we can get in sign him but try for better"

    Adams has never said he was opposed to Theo but he say he wasn't quite what he wanted and explained the transfer market is really difficult and he wanted a player of Angol's quality - which he said Theo isn't

    "So did you find me a striker?"

    "Yes, Theo Robinson"




    Bradford City has announced the departure of Lee Turnbull, with a new recruitment model set to be unveiled in October.

    I honestly don't give a monkeys whats said, what's promised, how many hashtags we have, or how pissed off or slopey shouldered the manager sounds.


    Results. Results. Results.

    We get ‘results’ at the moment. They are defeats or draws, so ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’ (despite having wonderful Stats)! Get the positive prefixes in such as, ‘outstanding’, ‘excellent’, ‘stunning’, even old fashioned ‘good’!
    Win at home and draw away (aggregate points) and we do well.
    Points win prizes, Possession in itself wins nowt!

    We get one at the end of every game, just not the one we want at the moment.

    Still believe Rupp needs to be the first out, but I feel sucked in by Sparks’ pre season hype so he can piss off if we managed to somehow get new owners as well. Spin doctor Sparks is his new name minus the Sparks.

    The signing of these most of these players ARE down to Sparks, Adams and the guy they just sacked.

    They've created this f++king mess.

    Another battle just STAY in this league AGAIN.. no one at this club ever learns from past mistakes.

    I said this job was too big for Sparks when he started.

    Soundbites and ballocks don’t change that.

    He needs to go. We need someone that knows what they are doing.

    The club is an utter mess.. Owner who doesn’t care! Novice CEO and a manager that thinks he’s bigger than Pepe.

    Get a strong CEO in and we might stand a chance. Rhodes was a joke as well. We are in this division because of poor leadership from the top.
