    Another great win, coming from behind, proving that there is a team spirit second to none, players playing for each other, the club and for the supporters, proud to wear the Bulls shirt.
    But there'll be those out there, thinking " What might have been if Jimmy had been etc ". It's not " What might have been " It's " What will be, now Jimmy's here "

    There'll be a few clubs in Championship, now, begining to have sleepless nights!

    Great win today. Plenty of team effort and everyone dug in together. Just heard Addy has resigned for the Bulls. Great news

    Cannot wait for Worstbus and Out of site to get back from London to read what they have to say about their team losing today.

    Good win today. A game of two halves we did well to go in at half time still in the game due to silly errors and bad refereeing. Second half better but lost some battles which let them stay in the game. We have passion, determination and commitmen and self belief something we didn't have under Cummins. Jimmy is building a good squad for next season but I think gale has to stay with us he is totally a different player under Jimmy. Gaskell was class today he will be unplayable next season. Nice to see pitts and arundel scoring today hopefully they will be on board next season to. Well done boys #COYB

    I'm one of those thinking "if only". I bet Marc Green is another.

    Whilst I am encourged at the current upturn in form, next season will be a journey into the unknown with a different side and a different story and I, for one, won't be counting any chickens.

    Gaskell was brilliant ...and the squad look like a team...working hard and backing each other up.... Adam O`Brian played out of his skin and tackled everything that moved....a great team result...COYB.....

    Well, well, well.....
    Now that was a performance that I really enjoyed...although not the first 20minutes or so!
    I suppose there will be the usual nonsense being spouted such as "Wigan were out of sorts" and "Leeds fielded a team of babes in arms" !
    A prize for the best thought out excuse for our win today - come on the usual suspects, give Hull some comfort for their top 8 spot...not !
    Immensely pleased with the team ethic, the lads didn't panic and just kept on plugging away.
    This was my first live game since the Salford fracas - looked like a total different team on the park. If this is the passion to win which will be shown next year, bring on a year of success !

    Jimmy has really got them motivated Gaskell was brilliant today not only in attack but played a big part in defence too it was very enjoyable game after the early lapses and some strange refereeing they all played there part well done . Good luck to players leaving maybe in a years time some will regret leaving but we all make decision s in life some for good some for bad . It's nice to see all the old players getting involved some way or another lets hope the success they enjoyed rubs of on the present team .

    Spanglish, they'll play " the we had kids in " card. Anyway, good win today, playing with heart now.
    Pablo, Yes, it's a journey into the unknown, not so much of a different side though, the nucleus of the squad is staying, the new additions, with more to come, look capable and have the experience , to take the club forward. I'm not counting chickens either as there are some tough games coming up, in the Championship. But, what do you mean by different story?

    Maybe Shaun Wayne now owes his players an apology?
    Maybe Wigan and Leeds did try and maybe he will accept they were out played!

    we actually played better against Wigan. Not at our best but still too good for Hull.

    Next year the salary cap is only £1m but wonder what the cost of the current squad is. If it was £1.65m at the start of the season we then lost Winterstein, Carvell, Sammut and Scruton from the squad, although pitts and arundle were added to it. I think if we then took kearney and diskin out of the wage bill, we'd probably be somewhere near next years £1m cap and would have decent squad

    Excellent display yesterday afternoon, really enjoyed the game, the difference in the side since Jimmy came in is incredible,earlier this year once Hull got 12 points up with the wind in their backs that would have been it - another 50 point thrashing, but yesterday a display full of skill pride in the shirt and guts. Won't mention too much about the usual awful display from Mr Hicks, this bloke like Mr Roby is just not fit for purpose, wake up Red Hall and sort this pathetic excuse for match officials, they are ruining the game.

    A serious case of lets look at what we could have have if we had replaced FC at the end of last season.

    Goes to show we should always have a Bradford Bulls legend in charge of Bradford Bulls.
