    It will be this season. The team we're following is bang average.

    But we were in the playoffs. Are. You saying we don't travel well even when we are near the top?

    That’s our fan base summed up. How dare somebody slate mediocrity.

    I would have expected at least 6 or 7 hundred no matter how bad it is. Different to our home attendances which have gone through the roof in the last decade

    I can go along with fans who travel saying they were disappointed with the turn out but you criticised our traveling away support whilst stating you don't go to away games, how dare you as you say.

    I doubt they'd take those sort of numbers in their 4th or 5th season in the National League though.

    I’m only observing that we are poor following the team when it’s a long way, me included. Yet I got ridiculed as a bullshitter and I was embarrassing. I gave an example that other teams supporters have noticed that we travel in low numbers (far away teams) when we give it all out that we are a big club with incredible home support.

    Like it actually matters what other fans think.

    Yes we have a great fan base and it's been discussed many times, ie would it be 15/16,000 if we paid the same as a Newport fan £315, I very much doubt it.
    And as been quoted our resent poor forum and lack of points has input into how many fans make the call with regards away games, I personally think anyone who travels 400 miles plus to watch us after what we saw on Tuesday night deserves a medal certainly not criticism, especially from a fan who comments he does not attend away games, we'll have to agree to disagree on this one @Bantam Begins@Bantam Begins.

    You'd think after what we City fans have had to put up with over the last 5/6 years we'd have far more important things to worry about rather that what opposition fans think of us.

    I never criticised the people who do away days I said the complete opposite.

    You're saying it was a poor turnout that is a critism, and as I replied those that did deserve a medal.

    Ok, you have to take in to a lot of factors.

    1) We’ve a shite owner that doesn’t attend games so why should others.
    2) We’ve a shite owner that doesn’t want to spend money on the club so why should others.
    3)We’ve a shite Prime Minister that’s turned the country into a mess and prices for everything are going up.
    4) Shite Covid is still about and numbers are raising.
    5) Bradford City as a club for years have been shite on the pitch
    6) The season tickets to watch Bradford City who have been playing shite are cheap and I would say our hardcore base is around 8k
    7) We’ve started the season shite.
    8) On average we do take a good following to games, so you are talking shite.
    9) Not many other clubs have been through the shite we have recently.
    10) I couldn’t give a shite what other people think of us.

    All those above points make you look stupid when we get 16000 fans at home yet 2.5% of that figure went to Swindon.

    People bought firesticks in lockdown and can now turn their tv off after an away defeat down south, rather than travelling hours and hours home after
