My idea is to Roll 2019-20 and 2020-21 together and when a team plays a game (2020-21 Season) that was not played in 2019-20 it's for "Double Points".

This is a great idea. Buy your ticket for the remaining home games as normal. If the games are played later in the year (looking possible) then you've bought a ticket; if the game doesn't go ahead then it's a donation.
Surely fans will get behind this!

As a Season Ticket Holder I have already done this. In a previous Post I have said that we are all in the same Sea - just different Boats.

Players are self employed as semi-professionals. Have any volunteered not to be paid until they have played the game/s?


I take it as club officials have been on here and ignored your question Mike.....that'll be a no then....

Some are on a Contract. Some are paid by the Game. All are on Expenses for travel and training. Some are Self-Employed.

We are all in different boats. Some of us are employed, un-employed, one job, two or more jobs, have a pension and some have two or more pensions. Others are on benefits and some have savings - others not.

However, with regard to COVID19 we are all in the same sea (just different boats).

As a Season Ticket holder I shall NOT be making a claim to get my money back. I took the risk of paying "up front" and any un-for-seen events that preclude me from attending (illness, the wife saying "your coming on holiday" etc.) must be accepted.

It has been muted several times that the Player's Tunnel should be covered and extendable out to the pitch.

The players and officials should feel and be safe from abuse from the more moronic "fans" who hurl insults and threaten physical harm.

Yes, the Referee at the Guiseley game was a W***er as he was informed by the crowd in the Stands. However, there were more personal  comments projected towards him down at ground level - some were attempting to get closer and inflict physical harm and these were recorded by Security Staff.

Actually the Assistant Referees (Lino's) were not that bad. It was the Fool in the Middle, making the decisions, that was the problem. Lino's were flagging offences but ignored or over-ruled by the T**t with the Whistle.

That aside, the racist abuse is in-excusable. To call someone a cheat may be acceptable. But to call someone a Black/N****r etc. is awful. Ban the git a.s.a.p. and prosecute under Equality Act 2010. No one is born a racist - they become racist because of what they see and hear, mostly in their home environment.

Whoever that person is - many, many thanks for a most generous gesture of support.

The Team have certainly missed Michael Clunan's presence in midfield and need a player with his skill and vision for the quick and slick pass. Dwelling too long on the ball allows the opposition to press forward and results in the backward and sideward passing that often loses the ball or puts Pedro under pressure when unable to pick up.

We used to do well when we had over-lapping Wing-Backs and Wingers and players who had that "understanding" like Fraser BT and Hendo.

Is there an under-lying reason why Nathan Fox has not even been on the Sub's Bench  :dontknow: His Wing-Back attacking is sorely missed. Alfie Payne might be better than Sonny Carey. Put all three Strikers on up front  :dontknow: 2 x big men in the box with Adam Marriott supporting. We could always then move down to a two man attack as a switch of tactics.

Several seasons ago, under Gary Setchell, I remember us using 3men up front waiting for the long clearance when the opposition had a corner (pinched the idea from Tamworth I believe). It un-cluttered the box and drew more opposition defenders back away from the attack.

It's all about changing your tactics - ringing the changes.

Fair result, I don't think BPA were 'overly physical', we have certainly played against worse but we never moved the ball with any real intent and the change in formation / tactics to accommodate Power at home was there for all to see again - two defeats in two at the Walks with some common themes.  First 10 mins of both games we went long then struggled like hell when that didn't work to get any sort of foothold in midfield, effectively playing with a man short in there and the tight, passing game that has served us so well this season abandoned in favour of knocking it to channels / focus on Power.  Last night was made worse by playing Power on the right which restricted Jones and that, compounded with Burrows having a very poor game at left back it made us very, very one dimensional.  We have three naturally left footed players - Kelly & Payne on the bench and Fox not even in the squad again, somehow we need to find a balance.

As IC said in the interview we can carry one or two but not five or six having poor nights, lets hope he too learns and changes things up for Saturday, we haven't become a bad team overnight but keep playing that way and we will become one.

Also think the melee at the end will cost us too and obviously Birch doesn't stand anywhere near me as no way were BPA 100% to blame

OK TonyM, what was the ruckus all about? What happened?

Have Bradford had an influx of players, maybe on loan, that have improved them recently  :dontknow:

They certainly appeared to be a well organised team.

As the song goes:

"I say it best when I say nothing at all".

As for the physical comments I have made - all out shoulder charges designed to barge the opposition player off their feet is over-the-top physical. Leaning shoulder to shoulder is OK.

Bradford (PA) didn't let us settle. We do not play a "packed defence" sort of game and we got stretched and gaps appeared. BPA were not afraid of having shots from range and one went in 0 - 1.

A big and physical side they pushed their weight about and shoulder charges were the tactics used - now, shoulder to shoulder is OK when playing for the ball but last night it was more like wrestling. Gashy was being man-handled from the start. BPA pressed up tight and went after every ball. Their team played good football with the ball and marked tight without it. BPA do not seem to be the same team who have been the "whipping boys of the league".

Where the hell is Nathan Fox  :dontknow: Lynn played Simon Power on the Right Wing 1st half and swopped him to the Left in the 2nd. Ross Barrows was playing Left Back but it is not his natural position. Sonney Carey was not effective at No11 - why was Hendo in the starting line-up  :dontknow:

As previously mentioned, the introduction of Southwell and Power seems to have unsettled/unbalanced the team and pushe others either out or shifted their positions.

Ryan Hawkins might have given us speed down the right (with Power on the Left) and his runs into the box might have given us other opportunities (drawing fouls is his speciality  :laughcry:

Not a good night at the office but getting that game out of the way Ian Culverhouse will need to look hard at the Line-Up and Tactics for Saturday.

Keep The Faith   :comeon: :comeon: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :comeon: :comeon:

We have missed Nathan Fox doing his wing back attacking r.ole. Think Ryan Fryatt needs more game time in Reserves and then subs bench for a while.

Hawkins is not getting into squad and might benefit going out on loan to keep him game fit.
