    I've read this twice, but I still feel 'why post it' ?

    WOAP ..... 'Putting the pride back in to BCAFC'
    (Sorry, the 'link' won't post !) Now added

    https://widthofapost.com/2019/10/08/gary-bowyer-is-putting-the-pride-back-into-bradford-city/

    Jason McKeown writes a good feel factor piece about BCAFC. How he doubted early on about our progress, and aims. But, now ...... It's all change !!

    JMc now feels good !! Is J Mc trying to earn Brownie points, or just see what many spotted earlier .... MF needed improving !! ?

    Our later MF additions, played the correct way have made a difference ..... But what is there to say that this was NOT GB's plan, initially ??

    WERE Connolly, Pritchard and Cooke NOT on GB's original radar, as we ALL thought he had totally neglected MF ?

    I'm not implying that J Mc is back-peddling ...... But he's sure doing a great job of covering his (and WOAP's) arse ;)

    Whilst all is Rosy, at the moment, with seemingly improved results - How long will it be before BT and J Mc become all critical, again ?

    We've ALL witnessed our 'poor start' - But in relevance ..... We're not the only ones! To be sat 5th in the table, just 3 points off top ..... ALL sides have had a 'poor start' !!

    Three good or poor results can change the League table dramatically, at this stage.
    Just saying, like ...... ;)

    I do think even though the WOAP articles are good, they do get carried up in the moment very easily. I was skeptical reading their earlier stuff about us at the start of the season. Not really given the team time to gel, now we are gelling its going quite well.

    Would bet some money that WOAP will be filpping again when we go on a bad run.

    Far far far too early for articles like that @Jason McKeown

    We won a few games.

    Let's see if he can get us up automatically.

    See I admire Sunderland for sacking Ross today and they're in the play offs.

    Fans need to stop dragging the club down with their lack of ambition and drive. Bowyer hasn't done anything yet!

    That would suggest they are no different to any other Bradford City fan, you only have to take Bantam Talk as an example,to some the last result defines our season.

    I don't think Jason's article is back peddling more like he's giving GB his dues for turning the sh#t show that was the previous 18 months of ERs time at the club around.
    TBF I've read a few match reports on there this season and they've been fairly depressing reading. Certainly no happy clapping for GB.
    I read the piece as cautiously optimistic for the rest of the season whilst acknowledging the positive changes GB has so far made. It comes across as: We're still a work in progress but a least we're heading in the right direction.

    That wasn't hard to achieve.

    We should be top of the league now!

    Standards at this football club is low but come the end of the season I feel we will be in the top 3.

    He does seem to change opinion more times than the weather. I don't mind his articles, they are usually well written but he would be better off waiting a few months before jumping ship rather than every couple of games.

    You don't win the league in October mate, you might have your wish of a top three come 5 pm Saturday but that is not a measure of the squad or the club unfortunately.

    Too true mate but this is why I feel the WOAP article is too early.

    School report on Bradford City so far is 6/10. Bowyer 4/10.

    From where we finished last season there has been a big improvement in one window. And Bowyer deserves credit for that. Of course it has to be sustained but it's a good start

    Whats not true ?.

    How can you score Bradford City 6/10 yet score Bowyer 4/10, Bowyer is the reason you've scored Bradford City 6/10 surely ?.

    Disagree with you about Bowyer not doing anything yet. A blind man can sèe the difference he has made to the playing side of things. He has also more or less ended the mistrust between the fans and players.

    You can see the difference on fans faces on matchdays now

    He has seemingly recruited fairly wisely in the summer.

    He has improved the performances of Wood, AOC and O'Donnell massively since the summer. He is doing his utmost with Akpan too.

    We are in the top 6 only 3 pts off the top spot, despite the slow and haphazard start to the season.

    You keep banging on about automatic promotion is a must this season otherwise he will have failed. It would be good thats for sure. But considering the wreck he took on, a play off spot would be an achievement in my book.

    There will be ups and downs this season for sure. But I firmly believe we have the right manager in place to get us promoted

    Think at times Bowyer has got it wrong. 4-1-2, Doyle as a AM. Not playing 4-4-2. Late subs. Worrying about other teams.

    However, lately he's improved but it's only a 4 out of 10 for me so far for Bowyer but he's heading in the right direction.

    The club should be aiming for top 3. The league is dreadful.

    If he's the right manager then he should achieve his aim.

    I believe Bowyer would be the first to accept he's made mistakes, hopefully he has learnt by his mistakes and it looks like that is what Bowyer is doing, we have players coming back (hopefully) who I believe will improve the squad, we've all commentated on the input Rupp can have going forward I hope he backs Bowyer in the January transfer market a couple of quality signings good enough to get us over the finishing line.

    Fordy, could have done with you last Sunday, went fishing and didn't get a single bite. What's your secret? :)
