    yep which means they can not search staff cars as the t&c says car parks owned by Tesco

    I stick by the 10 games but you couldn’t see how our why we could finish 10th.

    You’re on here to spin your positive bullshite but can’t tell the truth.

    So serious question what are your thoughts on our performance in the last two games? Since you can’t understand pre season means nothing but fitness what do you see in us currently to believe we will go up automatically?

    The way city are implementing this possession football is an opposition dream. Slow side to side and back again with no cutting edge passing gives defenders plenty of time to organise and crosses coming in fro far to deep makes it easy to defend.
    The whole tempo needs speeding up with occasional balls down the channels like the one that brought our second goal.
    A couple of new faces needed because of the injuries and a tweet to the tactics to make us less predictable. Hopefully we will see a difference soon

    We need better full backs

    I think @Park bantam@Park bantam makes some apt points.

    I also think all our foibles are a work in progress.

    No real cause for concern in my opinion.

    We had a shite pre season so you are making that up to suit your narrative. Find me a post ive waxed lyrical over pre aeason results. I honestly think you have mental issues.

    I think we go up this year. Not changing my mind after 2 games. Put the 50 quid bet on or bore off.

    Slow start though.

    I had city down for a home victory and an away draw, in the prediction league.

    So four points.

    We have one.

    Losing it so close to the final whistle is concerning!

    I know it is a marathon rather than a sprint, but we are already five points off the pace.

    A poor performance cost us any chance of any points. Let's not pretend it was just a minute of poor game management.

    Attacking intent was non existent up until they scored and we changed things, then, lol how poor we made them look at the back with going slightly more direct.

    Let's hope MH learns from this because we simply aren't good enough to play through the thirds all of the time BUT we are good enough to dominate and hurt teams if we can learn when to mix it up.

    All true - but 5 points is nothing, and the acid test is this: do you think Stockport can recover from their poor start and challenge the top 7?

    Sometimes we're too close for our own good.

    Sometimes the less you know the more confidence you can have - I think Stockport will recover for sure. Same with us.

    Well it was a minute of poor game management that ultimately cost us as we had somehow managed to scramble it to 2-2 where we should have just killed the game but we switched off but you do make a valid point about being more direct and I hope that MH picks up on that. Oliver will score goals when the ball is launched into the box. That's his game.

    Or, we could have played better from the start, been 4 0 up and the goal in the last minute doesn't matter a jot.

    Pretending it's just the last 60 seconds that cost us yesterday it's massively nieve and not very helpful imo. I'm hoping that privately MH doesn't share your point of view.

    In his post match interview it sounded to me like at 2 - 2 he would have been happy with a point but was not happy that with 2/3 minutes left the experience we had in the side didn't manage the game out.

    I heard the interview, that's why I said "privately".

    As he said after a poor performance we get a lifeline with minutes to go it’s criminal to throw it away

    Good to hear him not sugarcoat what was a poor disjointed performance. He ain't daft enough to think that the squad would just click. Plenty to work on for him and Hodges.

    Look, you don’t understand football.

    The DNA at Bradford City is all wrong.

    Rupp, Sparks all wrong for the club.

    Keep on saying until we sort the top out and gain some ambition then we could struggle on the pitch for a while.

    He went on record saying judge after 10 games. Now his toys are out of the pram after 2 games. He clearly doesnt understand football is a 46 game season.
