    Lighten up. I guess you don’t go to many away games, as it is commonplace. And as I sit next to the away fans in MR, many teams sing the same chant to us

    No problem Kev, I don’t personally film anything when at a game as I want to fully enjoy the moment, especially rare times such as Crichlows goal. But kudos to those that do, it’s great to see goals from different angles and viewpoints, and also to see the “limbs”!

    Ideally I would have posted all 3 on the same post, but not sure how to do that. It took me bloody ages to work out how to link the Twitter videos as it was lol

    I'll be honest early in the season I thought Halliday was not good enough and a total liability, but tbf after the last season he'd had he was bound to be rusty as he got back up to speed and now gladly i'm happy to have been wrong, yes his defending is questionable at times but what an engine he has and the ground he covers is immense so as a result he's going to make the odd rash decisions probably due to exhaustion, but he's just got better and better as the season went along. As regards to Ridehagh I've never got any of our fans criticism towards him as he's always been a steady away good enough full back for L2, yes he's not got the attacking ability of Halliday but he's the steady experienced pro all teams need at this level.

    Because it is not true. I live in Bradford and it is not a shithole. Yes parts of the City is run down and need investment and it is nothing like the City I grew up in. I defy anyone to tell me that other Cities are much the same. Bradford’s rural district is just beautiful.

    I know. I have been to more away games than you can poke a stick at. Unfortunately, my away days are few and far between these days. I know what they sing, but you don’t pull your own city down. Bradford as a village, a Town and a City and part of the Industrial Revolution would knock spots off most of those that come here from Towns and Cities that can only wish for a background like ours.

    Totally agree, it’s a fantastic city to live in and the district has some great places. It’s just a crying shame that our inept council have been doing their very best to ruin it and run it into the ground for so many years - but that’s for a different thread!

    The inner city is exactly the same as most inner cities, the ring around that is good and the ring around that very good.
    My house has a BD postcode, is 4 miles from the city centre and it is bloody lovely. We need to start talking our city up and embrace the good things about living here.

    Second half was worse! Was on the other side of the hill so I could see their goal and the ball spent 40% of the time in our half near our goal. Had to go off the noise of their fans to tell if they’d scored or not.
    And not at all, share away

    Alex Jones at Port Vale mate. His career went downhill from there.

    Halliday has been solid since the first five games of the season. People just don't seem to understand the role of a fullback as it's not as glamourous as a striker or a goalkeeper. I thought people were mad to scapegoat him and now none of them have held their hands up about it

    Deluded. It's a shithole. You need to travel and see the world and you'll quickly realise that Bradford (and most UK cities are shitholes). I've never had someone try and take my watch from my wrist in Europe, Asia or North America but I did in Bradford. That's just one incident of many. The city is a shithole. Accept it

    If having your watch nicked is the barometer of being a shit hole then I'd suggest there are many worse places than Bradford in those continents you've named.

    My husband had someone, a young girl, try and nick his wallet in Bologna. All cities have their dangers. One or two exceptions, Singapore and Japanese places in the main.
