    I'm trying to get the scarf parade going on social media, I'm perfectly happy to support Mark Hughes and his appointment. It's unexpectedly good in terms of name value. His tactics probably aren't a million miles away from something that would work in L2 either.

    I'm behind it.

    I'm just tempering it by saying the club can't keep raising the stakes like this. There's a limit to what the club can do while it tries to avoid (what I perceive are) the real issues.

    Park, no matter how much you try and spin it, the football side of things has been pretty shambolic. Just go some way to admitting that and you won't come across as so biased.

    The commercial side of things has come along but let's also look at why. Ryan has appointed some specialists in there. He hasn't done it all himself. He now needs to do the same with medical, recruitment, first team coaching etc

    yeah, no problem with positivity at all, I hope it works out, but you are correct, there is still a lot to sort out. Likewise, fans not getting carried with a high profile managerial appointment, is fine as well. There’s quite a bit of pressure on the players this weekend, maybe he will get something extra out if them, that the previous boss and lets face it, whilst having great backing from the supporters as usual, hasn’t really materialised. Mansfield with their support will be up for it. Should be a good game.

    What he may able to impart is wisdom. The big games have to be managed anxiety and nerves have to be used positively. He has huggins of that kind of experience.

    Better get the 9000 to bring a spare one each so the empty seats don't drown out the scarves.

    Feel free to leave mine empty though, the club doesn't deserve my support back yet.

    Rome was not built in a day. The appointment of Hughes is a massive statement at our current level and the fact he actually approached us , shows he believe's in our potential.
    All we can do as supporters is turn up and back the boys.
    Sustainable football , well 7000 at £200 = £1,400,000 OR 15000 = £3,000,000, bid difference to the playing budget and i am sure after speaking with Rupp and Sparks. Mr Hughes must have had some sort of assurance on what will be available to him. The football under Rupp's tenure has been dreadful, but we still need to play our part.
    Hopefully the club is still going long after Rupp has gone and we fans are still putting our bums on the seats.

    Think a scarf parade is very premature.
    Best way to show your support for Hughes is attend games now he’s in place and see for yourself how he’s going to do. Understand people for still not wanting to go and totally get that but to go from low attendances to fan scarf parades is a bit OTT in my opinion.

    Get to the ground and chant Hughes name or whatever but don’t be sucked in yet by all the fanfare. It needs a lot of work and probably some blood sweat and tears to get VP back rocking again. Rupp/Sparks need to be brave and see it through. Then we can look at things like that

    Ha ha.

    all we need is BBCC in the centre circle before KO and a few disco lights and the place will be rocking. Welcome Sparky.

    “Bradford Boys still winning” :)

    FWIW i thought Scarf parade was a good suggestion. Lets show Hughes we appreciate he’s here. Still can’t believe we’ve pulled it off. Board deserve a chance to back him. If he walks through lack of support, then fan revolt would be warranted.

    personally, im giving them one more chance to learn from their mistakes of not backing Adams properly in the summer - Theo and Lavery in on the cheap etc. no loans - inagine if we’d had a player like Walker from August.

    He has presided over some of the worst decisions - in the recruiting mediocre players wasting the big budget he informs us we have.
