    Here comes another one......
    Left after a disagreement with Rahic............surely not, how could that happen...?

    “It’s a shame how the club is now. I was there for a year-and-a-half and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It wasn’t the club or the staff that were the problem. “I had 18 wonderful months. We got to the play-off final and it was a privilege to work for them. But I left as a matter of principle because I did not agree with the owner’s philosophy and I thought he was very disrespectful"

    Maybe Edin doesn't want anyone at the club who knows football more than he does.

    Chris Short has gone up in my estimation for this. At least he's come out and directly spoken about the issues rather than giving vague rumours or hinting at things.

    The forum has been full of people saying we haven't been fit since the PP/Allenby days recently so it is possible that Rahic had a point but clearly the way he went about it left a sour taste.

    The worst thing about this article, is it is another damning article, under the banner of Bradford City FC.

    Irrespective of what, whom, why, I really am sick of the negativity and the ill dissent around the club.

    It's becoming so tiresome and draining.

    In fairness Edin might have had a point with this one. Our fitness levels were pap last season.

    At least he proved his worth last Saturday
    Blackpool played and were fitter than us playing 90 plus minutes
    Another backward step for us

    But not the season Stuart took us to Wembley with a certain Chris Short as fitness coach, strange that ?.

    I get the feeling that, while worrying, the issues are not as sinister as some people like to make out. It seems a case of Rahic not being a very nice man to work for which, while unfortunate, is not unique. There are people up and down the country working for arrogant, stubborn, disrespectful bosses. Some people can't work under those circumstances and walk, some people are mentally tough enough to just get on with it. Let's hope Hopkin is the latter. If the football side improves, I guarantee that 80% of City fans will lose interest in what is or isn't happening off the pitch.

    Our team looked unfit last season...

    Now he’s suddenly the messiah because he’s slagged off Edin. Great

    We faded terribly at Wembley in the second half. They were all over us when they scored.

    There's one person responsible for it all. It won't change until he is gone.

    Some people can't work for them? How about just about everybody? FFS Rahic is a cancer at our club and the sooner he goes the better.

    A place of work where staff are treat with respect is a far more productive place of work than somewhere ruled by a culture of fear.

    A bit ironic slagging one of our owners off but then accepting a job offer from the biggest basket case owners in football.

    You can be decent and have high expectations.

    It isn't great for a philosophy which is about building for the long term, if people keep leaving because they can't work with the boss.

    Football is a business, it isn't just about the product on the pitch although that is the swan we see. If we are to get to the Championship, then the activity behind the scenes will be key. We won't do it just by having a 'good' manager. Our owner's abrasive style is going to hinder us in the long term, as well as in the immediate future.
