    I do wish he could have got just one league goal us, just to see his reaction. Could never fault his enthusiasm

    He's absolutely smashed that in TBF. Great finish.

    He has scored the winner for Saarbrucken against Borussia Monchengladbach in the Cup. Their giant killing continues.
    Pleased for him. I loved his enthusiasm if nothing else.
    I spoke to him at the player of the year awards and he is a lovely lad.

    This is incredible.

    He literally didn't even resemble a footballer when he was with us, now he's banging them in against Bundesliga sides.

    Saw Chib play only at non league but from what I see its a bit of Jordan Henderson- 5% Skill 95% passion. Although Chib did score 4 in one game before

    Saw Chib once or twice when he played for Bradford Park Avenue. Always tried hard.

    Talks about current City season and Andy Cook fandom, which is why I didn't post on Where Are They Now thread. Though feel free to move if necessary. Link to full article at end.

    "... [The] Saarbrücken ... squad: a mixture of youngsters who never quite made it at the top level and experienced journeymen such as the centre-forward Brünker, who in England is perhaps best known for a one-year spell at Bradford City that can charitably be described as mixed.

    “It was a really intense time,” Brünker says of a spell that produced 31 appearances and a single goal, against Oldham in the Checkatrade Trophy. “In a football sense, I wasn’t the scoring machine that Bradford hoped I would be. But I had a really nice time and I had this feeling of connection to the Bradford fans. I just wanted to give 100% for them.”

    He still watches all their games and after the tape is turned off spends several minutes singing the praises of Andy Cook, who he hopes can fire them to League Two promotion this season."

    He had a great chance at 0-0 with a free header about 8 yards out then another big chance in the 80th minute at 2-0, not to be his night.

    Interesting listening to the commentator talk about him, he's now a part time electrician. Also mentioned that his Dad died just over a year ago after going missing on Christmas Eve 2022 and his body was found in a river in March last year then almost a year later to the day was when he scored the 92nd minute winner in the quarter final against Monchengladbach.
