    You do find some weird things to do in your spare time. I think the only 2 Morrisons stores I've ever been in are Five Lane Ends and Guiseley, and I haven't been in either of those for years and years. Yet, as Bradford's self proclaimed businessman of the year, every year, your idea of a good day out seems to be going on a tour of Morrison's stores across West Yorkshire, stores which I presume given your status, are not the kind of places that stock the delicacies you have become accustomed to. What a very strange life you lead.

    Probably waiting its turn for refurbishment i guess. I hadn't been in one for years as i shop at the local tescos but had to pop into one a couple of months ago and was impressed with the layout. Better get back to topic whatever it was.

    If I were him, I'd evaluate their position like this: If T&S were out of contract in the summer, would I give them a new deal? I imagine the answer Ryan would come up with would be no. In which case he should make a change.

    Better get back on topic with regards T & S, I'd think any sponsorship monies will be welcomed by Ryan and the club, it will help out with regards our finances and possibly enable the owner to give T& S a decent player budget.

    In a sense, it'd be even harder to sack them mid season, next season. Because there's a natural point of reflection and its a case of double down and back your appointment, or reasonably explore the need for change. Either way its a big call but if he backs them now, he has to stick with that position even if next season ends up being a stumble.

    You don’t have to be sorry. And which one of those is a lower league club ie L1& 2 struggling on less than 5,000 per game.

    ZERO! I did say lower league clubs

    Its easy to counter because he’s not answering my point. Southampton......jeeze, since when have they been a lower division club?

    I don’t see the relevance to which level of football it is. Your argument was that the club HAD to be in the city centre because of poor transport links and my argument is why does that matter to Bradford city? There is absolutely no advantage gained from the ground being where it currently is.

    I think be understands the necessity to go up next season, so if we get off to a poor start I don't think he'll hesitate to sack them. If next season was one of consolidation in the league above for example, I think he'd stick with it as there's not much to lose. But he is under as much pressure, if not more, than T&S to deliver next season so I think he won't take any chances.

    Imagine he sticks with them. And their first 10 games next season are like the last 10. They'd have to go, but then Sparks would be under huge pressure for taking them into the season. It'd lead to another wasted season

    Imagine if he changes it and we set off on a bad run and yet another mistake made. There is no guarantees in football. We could have gone for experience with Hurst in January when we were three points behind Grimsby I know different clubs different outcomes but I doubt he would have got into the players as quickly as T&S did.

    Park, genuine question but have you actually been watching the past 10 games or so? Its been utter dog shit. You cant honestly be happy with how we have been approaching games, setting up in games, how negative we have been in games, lack of plan B in games, like for like substitutions in game, lack of goals in games I mean feck me the list is endless.

    If he sticks with T&S will it affect season ticket sales? There could be many who hesitate, given the way we've ended the season. That would mean less money for recruitment, lower quality brought it and less likelihood of success.

    Who said in the City centre, mixing me up with someone else once again. Check out my original post AGAIN . I said LOWER LEAGUE CLUBS....

    I cited Colchester , which used to be a 40 min drive from where I used to live. They are now on paper in debt to the owner about £31 m.

    You think City could survive on crowds less than 5k playing at Odsal on a Tuesday night in winter, please?

    You countered Southampton as an example.

    Nearest Prem Club club to Southampton , Brighton 65 miles.
    To Bourmouth over 30 miles
    Portsmouth over 20 miles

    Nearest Clubs to Bradford less than 15 miles, less than 25 miles, less than 35 miles? Its a BIG list.

    Are you seeing something here, it’s called ALTERNATIVES .

    If you are going to debate, please respond to the question I posed , not an alternative narrative because you can’t or won’t counter my point .

    Anyway back on topic.

    I’m confused? 5000 fans? My original point was that VP is probably in the wrong area for the club to move forwards. My point was to build a new 20k stadium on the Odsal site, not to simply move into Odsal as it is now.

    Let me ask a question of you Tom in return. Did you enjoy the football under an “entertaining “ manager in the first part of the season? The two lads came in to tighten us up and to pull away from where we were heading. I don’t think we have the players to play all out attack the forwards are to alike the midfield isn’t mobile enough and as the Harrogate match showed our defenders are to slow.
    The last two or three matches could have gone either way but the first 15 where entertaining and brought some great results and now they need a summer window to bring players in and a pre season to work on systems including being more expansive

    Making a change now would be 'forgivable' in terms of Sparks profile as CEO. Standing by a new manager after a tricky start would also be. But a poor start under T&S, amd Sparks will be damned either way.
