Parkinson's pride as Bradford City penalty kings are on cloud NINE

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: LET THE CELEBRATIONS BEGIN: City players set off on their victory run after pulling off one of football’s all-time giant-killing feats by beating Arsenal LET THE CELEBRATIONS BEGIN: City players set off on their victory run after pulling off one of football’s all-time giant-killing feats by beating Arsenal

Giant-slaying City woke up today as Capital One Cup semi-finalists after a night that Phil Parkinson believes fans will cherish “for the rest of their lives”.

Parkinson’s warriors stunned a full-strength Arsenal side in front of Valley Parade’s biggest crowd since 1960, winning their ninth penalty shoot-out on the trot after the game finished 1-1.

Garry Thompson’s volley was cancelled out by Thomas Varmaelen with only three minutes of normal time to go. But the Belgian’s miss during penalties proved decisive as City sealed one of the biggest results in their history to reach the semi-final of the competition for the first time.

Parkinson admitted: “I’m very proud of the boys. I don’t really want to single anyone out but there were some tremendous performances.

“It hasn’t really sunk in for them or for me yet and I don’t think the enormity of what they have achieved will do until today.

“It was a night to remember. We want to put this club and this city back on the map – football clubs can do that.

“This is a fantastic football club. You could just feel the support and passion around the ground.

“I came in at 4.30 and you could start sensing it then.

“It was a very special night for everybody. All the people here, especially all the kids, will remember it for the rest of their lives.”

Arsene Wenger surprised City by putting out his best team but the home side refused to be fazed by their big-name opponents.

Parkinson said: “He’d been saying in the press that he’d bring a strong squad but I didn’t expect him to go 'bang’ and play them all. Seeing the likes of Jack Wilshere and (Santi) Carzola in there was a real surprise.

“The talk will be about the penalties again but I’d rather praise the performance. It was sensational.

“We’ve taken on Arsenal’s best team and were leading with three minutes to go. Then we had the setback of conceding the goal and had to go again. But I thought the lads were outstanding and showed immense quality once again.

“Once their goal went in, I was glad there were only three minutes because you could just see us dip. That’s understandable.

“But we asked the lads afterwards if they were fit and strong enough to go again (in extra-time) and they showed they were. They weren’t going under.”

Skipper Gary Jones, a scorer in the shoot-out, called it “one of the best nights of my life” before adding: “We’ve just knocked Arsenal out of the Capital One Cup. It was 11 versus 11 and we had to keep our shape and frustrate them.”

Goalkeeper Matt Duke, who saved a penalty from Santi Cazorla, said: “We set our stall out and the men in front of me were fantastic. We are really fit as a team and that showed.”

I'm not a football fan but was glued to the radio last night. What a fantastic result!

Brilliant result for the team and the city (and, of course, Tottenham).

Well done to the team and the fans - your efforts could be heard loud and clear on the radio and certainly outshouted the southern contingent.

I go regularly to city's home and away games and this has been a long time coming. It makes up for all those cold rainy afternoons watching us loose to teams we should easily beat, we finally have a brilliant manager and a fantastic team to be 1-0 up on arsenal for an hour and a quarter was amazing. We played a great football at times it looked like we were the prem team and they were the league 2 team. Great game, great atmosphere and I can't wait for Saturday nevermind Chelsea in the semi's.
Well done lads as always I'm proud to be a Bradford fan CTID

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Oh what a night! Absolutely huge effort by all at the club, players, manager, chairmen and staff not forgetting our massive supporters you were brilliant! If that did not give our players the drive to get our team out of this hell hole of a division, nothing will. To see all those fans, to hear those fans, to see VP packed as it should be, every aspect of last night was just reward our team deserved for the season they provided for us so far. There is more to come. ... We shout with pride. we'll never hide our support for you. Our colours high for all to see, our support is true. ... What more needs to be said.

could only hear the Arsenal fans singing when they equalised. We kept them quiet for so long. Magnificent effort by all concerned at BCAFC. I thught the referee was total biased and most free kicks went the way of Wenger's men.

Loved the way we played. stood up all the way through and played some good fotball for an hour and threatened on the break but after that we had to defend for our lives. Thought Wells played well but ,if he has aspirations to play at a higher level,he has to improve his fitness to last longer in such games. Merdith was sensational often being overloaded with two players but remaining solid positionally and in te tackle.

However great effort from all concerned.

23800 PLUS IN THE GROUND AND MAYBE THAT CAN BE REPEATED WITH A MATCH WITH LEEDS/CHELSEA

Football is a great game at times and very cruel at other times.
It fills you with pride and gives you heartache and despair when you love your team as much as I do.
Last night the football gods were looking down on our club and every person connected to BCFC will know how we feel today.
It makes you laugh and it makes you cry, this morning i've crying with joy and pride because our club have put Bradford on the world map football wise.
What a night, what an atmosphere, what a team.
Last night makes every inch of every yard of every mile we've ever travelled to watch our team worth the effort.
It blows away the cold rainy evenings when you've travelled 500 miles to Aldershot, Gillingham and back.
What a great evening that will live in the memory for ever, I don't need a replay of the game, it's there forever in my heart and mind just like Wembley, Blackpool, Wolves, Everton Liverpool and many more great times.

WELLLLLL Brother & Sister Bantams !!! c-:=


What the Hell Do you say after a Night like that?


It had EVERYTHING - Pure Theatre!


I have supported City Since 1965 & Most of us Footy Fans have a "2nd Footballng Love" - Mine has always been - Spurs!


So last night was absolute HEAVEN for me on 2 levels of Footballing alliegance.



Thanks to PP's Fabulous Bantams.

For One Night Only We turned VP into The Gallatasery Stadium in Istanbul - ............Whats their "Cheery Hello" ?? - err something like "Welcome to HELL"




Well thats exactly what Arsenal were subjected to and I truly believe the massive VOCAL support "really did" get to them!



What was so satisfying was that We did it by playing some classy - intelligent football - fought like Demons for every ball & Kept our shape!



We aren't individually as good aseach Arsenal player - But as a "Collective" OUR 11 Men matched THEIR 11 Men - and that fact CANNOT be denied.


One other point - Arsenal put out their Very Best Team - So they've NO excuses on that score.



Well done lads - You have uplifted the Supporters - Given us much overdue "Pride" - Put £££s into the Clubs Coffers & Lifted an often depressed City generally - Its not a bad thing when total strangers smile broadly at each other and hug spontaneously in shared joy !


Thats what the Gods of Football granted us City Fans last Night :-
"A Moment of Grace - Allied to:-

"A Moment in Time"...............
..that will LIVE FOREVER with those "Who were there"!!


Well done Mr Parkinson



Well done The Lads



Well done "us" - "We" the Supporters

Absolutely over the moon this morning!

What a performance...what a night...!

This squad is one we can and should all be proud of! They really showed their metal last night and I really think we should fear no other team in the run in! This cup run is amazing I just hope we can replicate the desire and work ethic against 'lesser' teams in the league!

Just read on BBC that Dave Baldwin believes the two televised games are worth circa £1m after the deficit had already been halved following last nights game! Our financial future is secure!

Fantastic news!

Do we need any more players in Jan with Reid and Davies back soon?!

One last note, the whole ream was clearly immense last night, yet i thought Meredith, Darby McArdle and McHugh were all absolutely superb and all deserve special mentions!

In Parky we trust... CTID

Must dash, got the match to watch AGAIN on Sky +

I just hope last night's game wetted the appetites of the 10,000 or so non regulars (not having a go here) wouldn't it be great to see the majority of those fans return on Boxing Day and have around 20,000 to cheer the lads on against Accrington Stanley in our quest to get out of the "God awful league" and back to Championship level which a City of Bradford's size deserves ..!!

Football is a great game at times and very cruel at other times. It fills you with pride and gives you heartache and despair when you love your team as much as I do. Last night the football gods were looking down on our club and every person connected to BCFC will know how we feel today. It makes you laugh and it makes you cry, this morning i've crying with joy and pride because our club have put Bradford on the world map football wise. What a night, what an atmosphere, what a team. Last night makes every inch of every yard of every mile we've ever travelled to watch our team worth the effort. It blows away the cold rainy evenings when you've travelled 500 miles to Aldershot, Gillingham and back. What a great evening that will live in the memory for ever, I don't need a replay of the game, it's there forever in my heart and mind just like Wembley, Blackpool, Wolves, Everton Liverpool and many more great times.
Was a great night and a great experience. The only downside, I suppose, is that the old boy wasn't able to see it.

I hope it isn't too long before we can feel such elation again :) :)

been a suporter since 197/58 season and was cramped in for the Burnley game and Spurs (booby Ham et al) and this has to be the best result ever and probably the best team performance ever with all players working hard together. A money spinning semi final and promotion will make one very old supporter very happy indeed

Freddy, last night was the highest attendance at Valley Parade since it became an all-seater stadia. However, I believe more were present back in the old days. It was also the highest attendance since 1960 when we played Burney.

In relation to the cup draw, it is next Wednesday night, where we will be paired with Villa, Swansea or Boro, Leeds or Cheski. The ONLY one I don't want is Swansea. Villa are still a big club, as are Chelsea and no matter how much we hate Leeds, that would still be a fantastic draw. That only leaves Middlesboro and I hear you ask why I want them. REVENGE... I haven't "forgiven" them for that play-off heartbreak...!

Whoever we are drawn against, it will be over two legs as this is the semi-finals now. Home and away against some big names plus both matches WILL be shown live on TV. Lawn/Baldwin have said we will make around £1m for the semi-finals...!

Although we are told that the nine shoot-out wins on the spin is a record (not just a club record, but a British record and more importantly, the World Record), I don't know if it will be in the Guiness Book just yet. I suppose they have to wait until we get beaten as we could extend it even further, especially as we have now been reinstated to the FA Cup too....!

Every single player raised their game to an unbelievable level. What a superb, disciplined defensive perfomance, bearing in mind our first choice central defenders are injured.

Last season , I was one of Will Atkinson's biggest critics. His form this season has been a revelation and last night he was Premiership quality.

I just hope these diversions don't detract from our promotion bid.

Last night will live long in the memory and credit must be given to PP fo the squad he's built and the team spirit he's engendered.

brilliant city, really enjoyed it. will be interesting when all the injured players are back! Davis will probably get back in, but not sure about Oliver. I know the whole dynamic of the team will change when we have a fit squad but I think we are too reliant on Wells for goal. so maybe a new striker.

I havent read the other comments, but i do need to say: i had not expected the City Manager to be successful this season, and time will tell whether any trophies are won or promotion (which is the priority) is achieved. Last Night he sent "boys" out against men, in terms of the Class the opponents turned up with. "david" again beat "goliath" Mr P and his staff, the directors should be congratuled at what was achieved last night, it will live long, and was well worth a drive of 4 hours up the motorway to be there. "Atkinson" my man of the match for City, but they were all heros, remarkable performance, a great night, well done...more of that fighting spirit during the remainder of the season, this team can go much further..

In around 25 years of going to VP, last night is by far the best match I've seen. Well done lads, proud of you all, 110% from each and everyone!

And PP, you deserve as much credit as anyone else! There's so many folk out there willing to put the knife in when things aren't going great, so it's only fair that you get a huge pat on the back!! Fantastic effort!

On another note, I'd anyone finds a voice box in the stadia, probably the Kop near the family stand, well, it's mine! :-)

I posted my comments on the game in the brief match report last night, which has mysteriously disappeared. What I will repeat though, is that I thought the game changed when the outstanding Wells went off, and we lost our attacking threat; after that it became a real rearguard effort.

What a great night, it's occasions like this that every fan lives for and makes it all worthwhile.
