    Imagine the nice Bunsen the club could have brought in had we done well all season, Sparks should see it as money lost not gained. I bet Bolton have made a fortune on away games this season, far more than you could ever in a normal season. Another opportunity squandered, but if you buy cheap you buy twice.

    I think those figures are pretty encouraging to sell a further 651 on top of season tickets for Grimsby was a good figure. We have this tale every year about season tickets. Last season with no guarantee of live football I think it was @Bantamsteve@Bantamsteve who said we wouldn’t sell 5000 we sold nearly double that.
    Depending on circumstances and if it looks like we will get a full season of live football we will have a decent uptake.

    It is a difficult one for the club. Hopefully they can get tickets on sale sooner rather than later.
    As they normally have them on sale at the lower price for quite a few weeks, this could take us up to pre-season.
    A few decent signings , could really boost the uptake.

    The bigger picture is that the home figures dropped by 66% from Grimsby to Salford and the away figures by 60% from Stevenage to Harrogate. If we hadn't blown it we could be looking at £120,000 plus sales in April.

    You and I live in different universes of the extra 651 watching such a poor performance how many do you think would have been "inspired" enough to buy a season ticket i would rather no extra watched it it was embarrassing
    Might be a bit closer with my estimate for this season If we persist with T & S

    You should know by now, Park accepts no criticism of anyone or anything to do with Bradford City. I'm starting to wonder if he isnt really Charlie Murgatroyd in disguise.

    If you think an appointment of another failed manager from the roundabout will attract loads of extra season tickets then you are wrong

    Almost as wrong as thinking that Turgid & Stalemate will change their approach and develop an expansive attack minded team eh !

    I do ajccept criticism but in this case for instance the 15 or so matches before the last fewl are just removed from some people’s mind we were on the high road to national league football under Mcall. And with that they deserve to keep their contract with the instruction that nothing less than promotion will do next year. They know that already

    You could have the most entertaining team in the world but if they are shipping goals they won’t last long did you enjoy the football before they were appointed in fact when was the last time you did enjoy it

    What happens if we are bottom of the league at Christmas as our current form suggests under T&S
    Would you still be averse to plucking another manager from "The merry go round" or happy to see us drift into oblivion
    I have nothing but admiration for them keeping us in the league but once the opportunity of a play off spot presented itself they failed miserably, my opinion is they are at the moment incapable to take us to L1 never mind the championship
    Not happy for another season of mid table mediocrity (or worse)
    Are you ??

    Blimey Mike 13 years ago.! Man U played on a slag heap once. Ive been to the Dell and St Mary’s.

    and get this LOWEST HOME crowd in 2009 16,400.

    Not sure what point you attempted to make there?, Are you comparing Southampton ‘ catchment area to City’s. Their “92 club” nearest rivals are nearly 25 miles away, then 35, then 65. Some comparison compared to City .

    I though Stewart did and was satisfied with his recruiting pre season.. However didnt the club stick to the “salary cap” rule as opposed to clubs bending it like Salford, Bolton etc.?

    He didn’t spend a big part of the budget which was inexplicably

    Here's one solution to throw into the management mix.
    Let's just say Lee Turnbull becomes manager with Trueman and Sellers under him next season.
    Not beyond the realms of possibility and knowing he managed Barrow between 2003/05.
    Would this scenario sell season tickets?
    Or should I file my thoughts under the Abbott, Collins and Drury farce.
