    Just heard on radio Leeds that this is the worst start in our history.

    Thank you Edin, you’ve done a great job.

    115 years..... Surely they’ll sell up and move on. I hoped a month ago there might be 4 worse teams, but we’re the worst of the lot. Please let the rumours of a potential buy out be true.

    It is indeed. The first time we have lost 11 of our first 15 league matches. Considering that our history includes some abysmal seasons, this is an achievement to cherish, and tell the grandkids about someday...

    I don't think there are 4 worse teams in the NCEL. FC Bolsover maybe?

    We had a worst start in 1983/84 Just 8 points from first 15 games. Worst start in our history is fake news from Bantam Heritage which radio Leeds have gleefully latched onto.

    Bantams Heritage carefully worded it by stating that last night's defeat was "our 11th in just 15 league games – confirming that, in terms of losses, this is indeed Bradford City’s worst-ever start to a league campaign in our 115-year history". Yes, 1983/84 was worse in terms of points, but this season has seen more defeats.

    Yes, it all depends on which stat you want to use. The number of losses is a first, but in other bad seasons we have won fewer matches, or scored fewer goals, or have conceded more, or have gained fewer points (converting where necessary from two points for a win to three).

    Anyway you look at it, it's an awful start.

    Was is still 2 points for a win in those days though? 2 points for a win now would have meant 7 points for this current rabble

    EDIT..Just checked, it was 1981 that 3 pointst for a win was introduced

    Just pointing out that it has to be points that determine the worst start. Thanks to Bantam Heritage Radio Leeds are gleefully pointing out its worst in our history which is incorrect. Losses do not determine which is the worst start. Otherwise we could lose 26 win 20 have 60 points, finish mid table and then would it be described as worst season in history. Incidentally after that woeful start in 83/84 we went on to win the next 10 and finish 7th. So still hope, not that I expect this crop to emulate that.

    Having personally witnessed both the periods in question I can safely say this feels much worse.
