    Men in the box was key yesterday
    Hopefully we have now convinced Mr Adams
    Time to get on the pitch sorted and forget about all his "secrets"

    I thought we always had men in the box but the missing of easy chances was the problem, as evidenced by Cook’s bad miss yesterday.

    Brilliant result yesterday, I just can’t work out why we are horrendously inconsistent.

    Also a hypocritical comment from myself as I don’t do away days but our away following is embarrassing when it’s more than 80 miles away.

    Been having that discussion elsewhere, we've never been a team whose support travels well. Fair play to the guys who do it week in week out though.

    Is 450(ish) embarrassing?
    I'm sure that's the figure given on the radio.

    450 is a good following after Tuesday night was there that many left n the ground at full time
    Fair old trek to Swindon and they were the ones heard on the radio

    I think with all this talk we are a ‘big’ club we should be taking around an average of a 1000 everywhere.

    And I agree with you
    But after Tuesday and the last couple of away games I think that was quite good
    Love an away game experience myself but couldn't muster the enthusiasm yesterday

    Not sure why you make that comment. The last full season, apparently ‘the average away attendance Bradford City had for the 2019/20 season was 1,009’. https://fanbanter.co.uk/average-away-attendance-for-every-league-two-club-in-the-2019-20-season/
    That isn’t a shabby figure at all.
    Come up with some guidance on what sort of number you think will be sufficient to Cease being ‘embarrassing’,as the average was over 1,000.

    Seems I’ve rattled a few with my opinion but I’ve just had a look at Swindon’s forum and I’ve seen a few comments saying our following yesterday was surprisingly low for a so called big club.

    They're quite obviously as deluded as you then.
    We are NOT a big club by any stretch of the imagination.

    Yeah you seem to have hit a nerve but 450 is pretty low when I'd expect Swindon to bring that number to Valley Parade. Mitigating circumstances I guess but probably shows where we are as a club.

    I normally go to pretty much every away match but I haven't been to an away match at all this season. All due to the pandemic. I normally go by coach, the away crowds are much more boisterous than the back of A block in the Midland Road and I am vulnerable to the virus for several reasons. I can't be the only one avoiding away matches given the current rates of infection. I had hoped I would be back by now, but not for me at the moment.

    It’s not brilliant in proportion to the home gates but it’s a decent figure

    The only cage you seem to have rattled is your own openly saying " I don’t do away days but our away following is embarrassing when it’s more than 80 miles away" not just I didn't get to the Swindon game you don't do away games yet criticise other that have, you need to give your head a shake.
    Swindon had just had their arses spanked and there fans are looking for a reason to be cheerful.

    Taking into account one win in eleven (all competitions), going into yesterdays game, I'd suggest the away following was pretty good. Had it been one defeat in eleven, we'd have taken well over 1,000, for what is a long trip.

    Just watching Man U get mauled by Liverpool and their fans are leaving in droves some going at half time, its not unique to Bradford City fans, why leave early they'll, only be sat on the coach awaiting the rest of the Plymouth/Exeter/London Reds getting on the coach at the final whistle :sob::sob:.
