    Goodness me Dave! Are you in some way implying that Manchester United fans don't come from Manchester! Tee hee.

    Couldn't agree more Keefly. It's a no-brainer for every club. When you're doing well, fans are enjoying the football and there are positive results on the board, you feel a hell of alot more motivated to spend your hard earned cash on going to more away games. It is what it is. Add Covid and alot of fans still concerned about mixing in large groups plus those who've lost their jobs and income because of the pandemic, and 400 plus at Swindon looks pretty good to me.

    Just pointing out walking out before the game has finished many at half time is not unique to Bradford City fans, but yes there was a little bit of a leg pull in there.

    I may be unique Dave - I have two close friends who are Man Utd fans who actually live in Salford! Interesting side light, neither would for a second want to go and watch Salford City. They're really annoyed that the Nevilles, Butt, Scholes, Beckham et al put their mega money into the club. Said one...'what is it? Their fxxxxxxxx toy train set?

    Why is it embarrassing??
    Swindon was one of the games i was going to this season, but after spending over £300 on games at Exeter, Orient, Salford and the cup game at Notts Forest without seeing a single victory, coupled with the last away match being at Newport, then surely you understand our support feeling a little pessimistic about a 8 hour round trip and minimum £100 spend.

    Exactly the same as all the big PL clubs in that their fan base is wide and varied. The amount of fans that come over from Ireland alone is astonishing.

    If you have been in Dublin Airport on a matchday, you will have seen
    even more Liverpool fans travelling over.

    Well said. Support like yours should be applauded and not derided by others. Your support, the clubs support is very good considering the plight the club is in, self inflicted.
    I had just done Crawley and Newport and was considering Swindon but decided against it, as I was feeling pessimistic. Did the races instead, bloody great day. My disposable pound is subject to many takers. Bradford City are not exclusive to my money. I've booked 18th Dec off primarily for the away game at Carlisle but a back up plan of Haydock Park, if necessary

    Wasn’t really an incident though. Just a few kids running after the coach shouting abuse.

    Yes they were just kids, if the lads had got off the supporters they would have soon legged it.

    Yes saw a clip of this about 5 12 year olds chasing coach. A few of my mates were on bus think was more funny than threatening.
