First of all hello, to all of you here in the "Lower Leagues Forum".
Unfortunatly i started to like this Club from West Yorkshire when they managed to save themselves from relegation in First Division with a win on the last gameday a few years ago.
1-0 against Liverpool.
Obviously it would have been WAY better if they had lost 0-1 and went down again, regarding the terrible financial situation they are in now.
Everything has gone terribly wrong since that.
Hardly a week passed without reading about defeats or conceiding goals within the last 10 minutes.
Robson couldn't save the Bantams this time, but who can blame him.
Most of the squad(or all of them) have been put for sale and debts are around 36 Mio. Pounds of what i read.
A charity game has been arranged that weekend to raise money, with the great Stuart McCall on top of the list.
Of what i understand they need a 100.000 pounds as soon as possible to secure next seasons license.
The understandably low TV coverage gets me to see around 2 games a season.
Past season i only managed to see one game.
It was a thrilling 3-2 against Millwall at Valley Parade with Michael Branch scoring the winner in overtime after they overcame a 0-2 from halftime.
I doubt they can bounce back to First Division in the next few years, but i thought it wouldn't hurt anyone if i open a thread for them here.
We'll see what happens in the future...
