'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View - Bradford City


In the wake of yesterday's sobering 3-0 defeat at home to Bradford, here are some views on the game from the Bantams' manager Phil Parkinson and a few of their fans.

After a string of poor results, Parkinson was a relieved man.

"We really needed that," he said.

"It was such an important victory. We needed it to get back on track in the league and we've done that. I thought we were excellent."

"Wycombe were the form team in the league and we knew it would be a difficult game. We had to show commitment and quality and we did just that."


The Bradford fans were delighted to get back to winning ways ahead of their League Cup final against Swansea City in eleven days time.

'Outstanding all over the pitch against a decent side. We looked a really good team tonight. All the players looked hungry and if this attitude can be maintained we are right back in the promotion stakes - an excellent performance, which makes a mockery of our recent lethargic performances. Well done boys - a magnificent and well deserved three points!'

'This was a good, hard working performance but there was an element of fortune in the result. Wycombe played just as well as we did for large chunks and missed two headed chances in the first half that Hanson would have been slated for. Duke also had to make a couple of saves at 1-0 and Wycombe's shooting was woeful.'

'Well, well, well... a change of personnel up front with Hanson and Wells dropped and we score three!'

'It's better to play fringe players in the league matches leading up to the final. These players are busting a gut to impress Parky and push themselves into the team for Wembley whereas those like Wells, who think they are guaranteed a place, are scared of getting injured and put in half-hearted performances.'


Trevor wrote:
'Our link up play was superb and we looked like a really good attacking side capable of scoring goals, The movement of the forwards was excellent and we ran them ragged at times, If they play like they did tonight then Wells will not get in this team as he is too static and a little greedy so play tends to break up when he gets the ball. Playing the way we did tonight we will score lots of goals and not many sides will beat us. Their manager clapped our players off, and rightly so, it was a great team performance played in style.'

'The strikers were changed but didn't score, but the midfield did, just what we've been missing all season. Long may it continue. Last night was just what everybody needed and we can go to Wembley feeling a lot happier.'

'Saturday we were not at the races in attack, no penetration, no creativity and with the few chances Hanson and Wells had, no end product. Last night the few chances we had were turned into goals.'

'A really top performance tonight. Lots of passion straight from the off. You could tell they really wanted to get back to winning ways. 3-0 was a pretty fair result but we could have had several more.'

'Wycombe simply couldn't live with the presence and all round game of Gary Jones.'

'We seemed to have a bit of bite & hunger tonight. Great result. As much as players may want to avoid injury, I'd like to think Parky made it clear that places in the starting eleven for Wembley must be earned.'
