    I think what @Fordy117@Fordy117 is trying to say is:

    You got to fight for what you want,
    For all that you believe.
    It's right to fight for what we want,
    To live the way we please.

    As long as we have done our best,
    Then no-one can do more,
    And Bradford City Football Club
    Are well worth fighting for.

    And we should never count the cost,
    Or worry that we'll fall.
    It's better to have fought and lost
    Than not have fought at all.

    Let's always take whatever comes
    And never try to hide.
    Face anything and anyone
    Together, side by side.

    100%. A lot of Bradford people need to understand this and install it in their life.

    My feeling is Rhodes, Lawn, Rupp and co just don’t care enough. Go back to Leeds and holiday in their holiday home then play the poor card then the poor city card then the we have a club club. Load of bollocks!

    Find a way!

    Why haven't you?
    At the end of the day you can wish or fantasise as much as you want. The real life practicalities are somewhat different. If you can find someone willing to throw 10 mill at us, otherwise it's just all bluster.
    There might be someone out there who is willing but I've seen little evidence of it. It's not as though you can twist these people's arms either. There has to be real willing on their part. Just think about all the publicity we had under Parkinson, promotion and wembley, beating Arsenal and Chelsea. Even with all that advantage it wasn't as though the rich were beating down our door. We got Edin and Rupp.

    That's rather hopeful of you Storck. @Fordy117@Fordy117 will tell you he is not a charity so he doesn't have to actually give solutions to the problems he talks about. In reality he has no idea.

    Like these Saudis who have taken over Newcastle. They haven't taken over for the fans benefit, that's just a byproduct. First and foremost its for their own financial benefit and we should use that analogy for anyone mad enough to want to take over us. If it isn't financially viable then it won't happen.

    My point is that you said, ‘My feeling is Rhodes, Lawn, Rupp and co just don’t care enough. Go back to Leeds and holiday intheir holiday home then play the poor card then the poor city card then the we have a club club’.

    Seems that you disparaged them as you consider they live in ‘Leeds’, the mega irony is that you live in Leeds! Otherwise why say ‘go back to Leeds’? That living in Leeds, means you don’t care. So do you care?

    Actually totally incongruous as Rhodes lives (or did so) in Ilkley, Lawn in the Cullingworth area and Rupp in Germany. So where Leeds comes into the equation, is totally lost on me.

    You are the Leeds resident, claim to have a very successful business but haven’t invested in the club (so playing your poor card)?! :unsure::whistle:

    I wouldn’t invest in football.

    Ok, you make fair points.

    I wouldn't either .. although I can just about understand why some might want to invest in PL or wannabee PL clubs.

    But if you won't invest in our club, why do you expect Rupp to invest in our club when you wouldn't?

    Rupp has no connection with our club and I doubt he has any proper understanding of football let alone lower league English football. From his position, it would be like throwing good money after bad. And yet you want him to do just that despite your view that nobody makes money from football.
