Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson slams referee's 'incredible mistake'

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Jon McLaughlin is too late after getting caught up field as City pushed for an injury-time equaliser and Rotherham make it 2-0 in the final few seconds of the match Jon McLaughlin is too late after getting caught up field as City pushed for an injury-time equaliser and Rotherham make it 2-0 in the final few seconds of the match

Phil Parkinson insisted City are still in pole position for the play-offs despite another game when he was left cursing the officials.

Rotherham’s 2-0 win at Valley Parade last night prevented the Bantams from creating some breathing space in the three-way fight for seventh.

Chesterfield also lost as City cling on to a one-point advantage over Exeter going into the final two games.

But Parkinson was fuming with referee Mark Haywood over the penalty that set Rotherham on the way to victory in front of League Two’s largest attendance of the season.

Michael Nelson handled in the box but the City chief felt the defender was clearly pushed into the ball.

Parkinson, who watched the incident again straight after the game on the DVD, complained: “It’s beyond a joke. It’s an incredible decision.

“Their lad has fouled Nelson. He’s knocked him off his feet and the ball’s hit his hand.

“When you compare that to the penalty we didn’t get on Saturday, it’s an absolute disgrace.

“What’s really annoyed me is that the officials came with microphones that weren’t working, so they couldn’t communicate with each other.

“If they had come prepared for the game properly, the linesman would surely have seen that it was a push. It’s an absolutely incredible mistake.

“It was a tight game. Rotherham made it an ugly, scrappy game and it’s their right to do that.

“It was always going to be small margins that determined who got the result. Unfortunately for us, the small margin has come down to a referee’s decision. I’m really loathe to speak about refs all the time because I was frustrated on Saturday but the two decisions we’ve had were terrible.”

Rotherham took over the third automatic promotion place from Burton, who visit Valley Parade this weekend for City’s final home game.

Parkinson is confident that his side can bounce back from their first loss in seven games.

“Fortunately this was our game in hand and the league table hasn’t changed too much. Chesterfield got beaten, which was good for us.

“We have to push on now and not feel sorry for ourselves. If we show the same effort again on Saturday, I’m sure we’ll get a bit of luck.

“If we win that, we’ve got a great chance. We’re still in the box seat.”

Andrew Davies came off early when his calf problem flared again. James Meredith will be assessed today after suffering a whack on the hip.

Rotherham boss Steve Evans said: “We matched Bradford toe to toe and what pieces of quality there were in the game were down to Rotherham players. We thoroughly deserved our victory.

“I was never concerned at any stage in the match and I can’t remember our keeper making a save.”

We have to accept poor refs in this league but do we really have to put up with be.nt ones? They were less of a push from Hanson when his goal was disallowed than was committed against Nelson yet not only did we not get the foul remarkably he gave hand ball when obviously it was not a deliberate handball. Hate to go in about refs as too many are poor and it sounds like excuses, this one though wasn't poor just corrupt

The officiating was poor, and if Parky is right and they were late to the ground and their comms weren't working, they should be dropped from the list and the club should seek to ensure this. but this action wont get us any more points.

However, we had lots more opportunities to score than Rotherham. Loads of corners and crossing opportunities and two clear cut chances that Wells and Thompson missed. If they go in, we take the officials out of the equation. The Losses of Meredith and Davies by the second half had a bigger impact on the match than the poor officiating, however infuriating that may be.

Just needed that little bit of quality on the deliveries. Jonah is usually on the mark but he couldn't beat the first man on numerous corners or maybe the plan was to flick on at the neat post. Either way we should have changed tactic after the 4th attempt! I felt we were the better team on the night with more attacking intent, Rotherham came to spoil and scrape a point but thanks to very marginal decisions and poor officiating they took all three.
Onwards to Saturday if we get behind the team like we did last night we'll give them a platform to raise they're game to another level.

Can't always blame the officials ; what goes around comes around, although I am still unsure why the Hanson headed goal was disallowed.
Great atmosphere, great crowd, but only an "ok" performance. The big ball down the middle wasn't working, and the crosses from Ried (MOM? you having a laff?) were inconsistent. Despite this, over the 90 we thoroughly deserved to win, and the fat controller (Jimmy's twin) is talking out of his @rse when he says they deserved their win.
Onwards and upwards ! Its still in our hands.

The anti-football brigade must be delighted with this result. Most they deserved was a draw for some good defending at times.

We were rushing things far too much but overall were the only side wanting to play in the correct way.

Their centre-forward never went for the ball all game and just barged into the centre-halfs for every header. Ref was awful. Not an excuse but the truth......

Most of ours matched up although i don't think Thompson will have to wash his shirt. He barely broke sweat and for a big lad 'shys' away from anything 50/50. he as been playing well lately and the ball was mainly on reids side but very quiet for me. We should have been looking to switch play alot more as Reid had 3 players on him most of the time. We went long too often but i guess the scrappy game rovrum created made this happen.

Overall city were the better side and the only one who wanted to play football. The ref had too much influence on the game and allowed rovrum players to dictate things......

Think it will go down to the last game.
Rotherham got lucky and was helped by the ref.
Think Wells was too lightweight for such a physical game and Wells was very lightweight.
I might of played Thompson up front or Connell alongside Hanson.
Shame we will be looking over our shoulders at Exeter but its still in our hands.
To be honest I hope Rotherham go up automatically as would not fancy them in the play offs. They seem to be our bogey team.
To get out of this league it has been proved time and time again you need a big physical squad.

The ref wasn't "bent" and any talk of that is just dumb - he was very poor but then they always are in this league so you just have to accept it and deal with it.

We are missing quality in the final ball - this explains why we dominate games and don't win. We lack quality and a killer instinct in front of goal at times.

Hoofing the ball up the middle constantly didn't work last night but we kept on doing it.

Rotherham were excellent defensively - their No. 3 was outstanding.

We're still in it and that's all that matters.

Got to win on Saturday.

The ref mark haywood comes frm west yorkshire do i need to say anymore.

Would a ref frm manchester referee the manchester derby, NO.

Problem is a lot of refs have never played the game, so they cant read the game Hansons goal was never a foul. they're unfit and S***e

One thing though if results on saturday were to go our way we could secure a play off place and cheltenham could do 3rd if rothscum lose. would city play a weakened team (rest players) and let cheltenham win and we can hav rotherham in play offs.

Playing Davies was a gamble that didn't pay off, this was compounded by Meredith's injury, Rotherham were not in the game for the first 20 or so minutes, then Davies goes off and they are in the game. Then we lose Meredith and they come into their own.

Yes, Parky knew Davies was carrying but as a manager you roll the dice and gamble sometimes, having been denied his presence for much of the season I think he NEEDED him to play that game last night to help keep the rest of the teams attitude as aggressive as possible.

I just hope it isn't a step too far and we are denied his presence again when it could be vital. I don;t blame PP for making that decision and no-one else would if we had come away from the game with anything and he had completed the 90.

This whole ref thing is not a debate, it is just simply wrong and cannot go on any longer.
*
The performance of the ref against Chesterfield on Saturday was not just that of a homer or a ref having a bad day, the guy was totally inept! With the failure to give penalty decisions and allowing 5 minutes added time when a trainer had not been on the pitch, he performed like someone who had just put a large bet on the draw prior to the game.
*
The ref last night was a typical poor league 2 ref who is not capable of performing correctly in front of a big crowd.
If we are honest, the game was heading for a draw and Rotherham had no intention of tying to get a winner. So for the ref to give such a bad decision which is going to be a game-changer late in the game is beyond inept, it was like others have commented, corrupt!!

But this cannot be swept under the carpet and put down to things even themselves out. This is simply wrong and cannot go on!

Mmm. Steve Evans 4 PP 0.

Simon Parker's article of a week ago was spot on - our performances against top sides, Northampton excepted, are poor
Gillingham LL; PV L,D; Rovrum LL; Burton ?L; Cheltenham W?; Exeter LL; Northampton WW; Chesterfield DD
As everyone said the lads have been magnificent but I think PP has been tactically naive. All any side has to do is play 4-5-1 and we have no answer. I remember a few seasons ago when McGod was in charge - we were top of league in October played Bournemouth and got hammered 3-1 simply because they overran us in midfield. 4-4-2 is really 4-2-4 because Reid & Thompson are forwards rather than defenders. If Burton do their homework then it will be very difficult again. With our squad I would play 3-5-2 - hope Davies/Meredith fit for the battle!
Maybe we deserve the rub of the green, but equally the Fatman from Rovrum knows his stuff!

As stated on previous posts, not sure either teams deserved 3 points but there you go, just hope we don't lose out on a play off spot by 1 goal as how often does the keeper coming up for corners work? Maybe worth the risk in cup games with nothing to lose. Also funny that the ref says his microphones didn't work, because as soon as Hanson's goal went in, the ref was running up the field to restart the game from the centre circle but suddenly he had a miracle conversation with the linesman, who gave the push, from 100 yards away while I couldn't hear the person next to me due to goal celebrations!! P.S How long did it take the fire brigade to attend the bush fire on Bolton Road? Must have been half way through a game of snooker!

Despite this, over the 90 we thoroughly deserved to win, and the fat controller (Jimmy's twin) is talking out of his @rse when he says they deserved their win. Onwards and upwards !

I would love to know what was said at half time. Rotherham were there for the taking, why did we resort to long ball? how does this ever benefit us? The only balls played to naki wells in the second half were 10 ft in the air, he was competing with a 6ft centre half. He did not stand a chance. We attacked down the left when reid was doubled up, why did we continue to run to the corner flag? we are not creative enough and at home we are easy to frustrate. very disappointing as the crowd were fantastic.

referee bashing is a pursuit of a loser!!! end of.

we would not have scored if we had still been playing now. davies should never have played. wells lightweight. reid out smarted by the fat man.

we did lots of huffing and puffing but we have to accept we were not good enough last night.

we are still in it though but we need to win on saturday. we cant rely on exeter to keep losing.

we need to look inward for the solution and stop blaming everyone and everything else. its embarassing and frankly pathetic

Fat Boy had done his homework. Two or three men on Reid, niggling fouls and nullify Hanson and Wells. Little or no creativity from anywhere else so, hey presto, job done!

We persisted in hitting the ball long and high and had no plan B. Thommo did very little and I'm surprised Hines didn't come on at half time. We couldn't beat a Rotherham side that had little ambition and had come for a draw. Surprising tactics given their close proximity to an automatic promotion place. Even their goalkeeper was wasting time taking his kicks from the start of the second half.

A big blow losing Davies and Meredith. What a key player he is and it astounds me how well he has recovered from glandular fever. I just hope we can keep hold of him - I haven't seen a better full back in this division.

Several factors combined to ensure City's defeat last night. Ok, the inconsistency of the ref was very annoying, i.e. penalising Hanson's clear push for his headed "goal", but not the push on Nelson which resulted in ball accidentally hitting hand. Losing Davies, then Meredith were also big blows which were a big help to the Millers. But as been said, Rotherham came with a game plan and executed it well, to which City didn't adapt 2nd half. Also City didn't make better uses of chances & the crosses needed someone attacking more at the near post. They still have opportunities to make the play - offs though and you never know, make get a second bite at the Millers with a stronger team, wiser heads and competent officials, but if the Millers play like that again, brute strength and efficiency should get 3rd place.

I look at it this way we lost, we move on removing last nite results we r the form team and for those LOYAL supporters who saw us beat burton in the cup earlier in the season i think 3 points is a should be on saturday.

And if we get in the play offs who is really gonna want to play us.the league is finished and as we have shown in one off games, and beating villa over two legs no one is gonna want to play us we can compete with the best.

Also y dont the club do a offer on saturday 15pound ticket which if we get in the play offs gurantees a seat 4 the home leg of the play off and if we get bak to wembley it can b used to purchase tickets for that game.

You would hope this scenario is not true, but you never know......
*
Ref Mark Haywood is from West Yorkshire. Now he may not support anyone but he will have a soft spot for a local West Yorkshire team somewhere, so the possibility of him doing BCFC any favours is limited as we are obviously not the team he has a soft spot for.
*
So he is a closset Leeds, Huddersfield, Halifax, Guiseley or Park Avenue fan.
*
Now add that thought to this next one.
*
Like all referees, Mark Haywood will be in total awe, appreciation and respect of the David Beckham of referees, Mr Howard Webb. So with 9 minutes to go, what was Mr Haywood thinking when he pointed to the penalty spot for what seemed like more of a foul on our defender?
*
I'm sure his thoughts had nothing to do with his friend/hero Mr Webb sat somewhere praying for a Rotherham goal as he is an avid Rotherham supporter.
*
Couple those 2 thoughts together and you have a curupt official!

Must agree with you. We have had some appalling decisions against us cant believe they are all mistakes. All is not lost referee's permitting we can win at least the Burton game. I think it wont matter by the Cheltenham game as I can't see any of the other also rans getting to the play offs. I now think Rotherham will get the 3rd automatic place and we will get in the bottom of the play offs which will suit City. It seems to me after the weekends games Managers who have pushed or Intimidated Referees seem to get results in their favour by bad mistakes or other. I think the referees forget that it is supposed to be entertaining. I can't remember the last time we had a Homer Ref maybe we should have a word with Steve Evans he might be able to get us one for the Burton game as it is in their interest to get Burton beaten. Anyway to the guy who thinks our season is over Rotherham will get found out in the 1st unless he can intimidate all the refs in that league.

ok the ref was bad but you are going to get that in this league. However Parky should take a close look at himself.

A dodgy centre half is no good against a team like Rotherham:long ball game to HANSON AGAINST THREE BURLY CENTRE HALVES IS NOT GOOD.

Playing the ball out to Reid all game is so obvious a tactic it can be defended against very easily.

Good teams can and do get out of this division by playing football 90% of the team and for the other 10% by being ruthless in defending etc etc.

PP 's tactics were simply wrong and have been in a number of games where points have been lost.

Just look at the number of drawn games (some against lowly opposition) and compare that to our nearby competitors.

Turning half those games into wins would have given us at least another 12or so points or thereabouts and that would put us where?.

SO WRONG TACTICS, TOO DEFENSIVELY MINDED TOO MANY TIMES, TOO RELIANT ON THE BIG HOOF and, incidentally, a bad ref.

Conclusion: who is stalling on a new contract. Parky or the club?

So no balls to the tightly marked centre forward, no balls to the tightly marked winger, who we passing to tyker?

Can't play keep ball up the middle of the pitch until the defence opens up for us to walk it in.

Come on lads, seriously, this was always going to be a battle of a match, we matched them even after Davies went off, the killer loss was Meredith which did enable Rotherham to finally control the left hand side of our team, up to that point the game was ours and they were panicking and using scrambling defence/midfield tactics, they hadn't come to win.

The were given a lead which we could not overcome, they weren't better than us and there were some baffling decisions for and against us.

Regroup, get those vital 3 points on Saturday and then watch Chesterfield and Exeter play out a 0-0 on the final day of the season.

You realy are a prize pratt Tyker. 2 defeats in 13 games and you are straight back on at the manager about tactics.

The tactics produced an early goal. It wasn't given. The tactics left Rotherham with one attempt on target in 80 minutes and the only way they were going to score was with a dodgy penalty decision. The foul for Hanson's goal was less obvious than the foul on Nelson for their penalty.

The change in tactics gifted Connell an absolute sitter. Hanson would be being pilloried if he had missed that chance.

Nothing has changed. The run of good fortune came to an end and the things beyond PP's control went against us. I cannot believe the "hindsight" brigade are criticising PP for selecting Davies. It was Davies who said he was fit to play so criticise him if you really can't help criticising someone EVERY TIME we lose.

No one has mentioned that the keeper moved the ball fully ten yards from where the free kick was awarded in the lead up to `penalty`!!! The Midland Road side drew the attention of this to the linesman on our side and he did nothing!!!
So are they `bent` or inept? I guess they are very inept because we see it week in and week out in our division. Its simply not good enough.
It costs managers and players their jobs, and is totally unfair on fans.
Rovrum came for a point, and were time wasting before half time, but the ref did nothing. A simple yellow card to the keeper would have stopped that. They did not feel they could win and were happy for a point, until the ref gave them all three points. Despite what the odious Evans and his sidekick have said, City should have won this one. It was a typical Evans team and we might get an early chance for revenge, for I would back us to beat them in Play Off Semi Final or Final.

Perhaps you could spend the time learning where your caps lock button is? Alternatively, you could learn how to spell. "waisting"; are you serious? That's what Steve Evans could focus on doing.

It would be "beaten" too. It really isn't that tricky.

Don't forget that you are the clubs' greatest supporter and you go to every match. Additionally, as you no doubt have a season ticket then why would it cost you anything to go on Saturday. We don't want your defeatest attitude anywhere near VP so please do find something else to WASTE your money on.

rotheram didnt look like scoring at all until they got the penalty which they shudnt have got .it was a foul on nelson.the refs n linesman should be consistent as that push was given and the ref saying hanson pushed before scoring .bull it was a very scrappy game and i thought it had 0 0 or we would even sneak a 1 0 game but how wrong i were again because of the officials .they have cost us dearly this season and it is about time something got done about them

You have to feel that, but for the 'hiccups', last minute goals lost, ref. mistakes and missed chances, City would be comfortably in one of the three 'automatic' promotion spots.

Still- let's be positive! If we'd been offered the chance (in any of the last 4/5 seasons) to be seventh with just two games to go AND MOST IMPORTANTLY WITH OUR PLAY OFF/PROMOTON FATE STILL IN OUR OWN HANDS- WE'D HAVE TAKEN IT!!

So, best now to forget about Roherham, the referee, the missed opportunities of this season etc and focus on 2x 90 mins plus (Burton at home/Cheltenham away).

To be sure these two will be major tests. Both opponents will be fighting like crazy for their own automatic promotion chances.

But if City could just re:capure some of the spirit that took them past Watford, Wiga, Arsenal and AstonVilla in the League Cup (to be honest not enough in the Leage)-their own 'Play Off' future would be secured!

Forget about the injustices of last night - they are well documented in these posts and in the media. Even if the officials came out and said they got it all wrong, it would not make any difference now - the result is written in history. So let's just focus on Saturday for what will be another massive game against a team fighting for the automatics. We need to be aware of their key players - they have some very good ones - but also make sure we do not get drawn into another scruffy game, as we did last night playing right into Rotherham's hands.

The pitch is not good with lots of bobbling that does not lend itself to good attacking football - if I does not rain before the weekend, can we water the pitch and roll it?

One positive that I would like to mention that I have not seen in any posts today is how fantastic the crowd was last night and how vocal and supportive they were. It was great to see. It was mitigated a little by Rotherham bringing 1,700 and their noise being concentrated in one small area but the City fans were excellent. I can't see Burton bringing that many on Saturday so it would be great if as many as possible from last night could come along again for one last push and make as much noise as last night.

Well done, City fans - you really deserve a successful end to the season - so come and play your part.

Just watched the goals on local news. Second goal, their player looked to control the ball with his right hand before racing down to the goal.

Their number 9 was jumping into the center half's all game, definitely a foul on Nelson.

We could have done with this ref at Chesterfield and the clown from that game at City last night.

In the event that Rovrum go up what will they bring to division 1?

We pay good money to watch football and not incompetent officials.

Perhaps you could spend the time learning where your caps lock button is? Alternatively, you could learn how to spell. "waisting"; are you serious? That's what Steve Evans could focus on doing.

It would be "beaten" too. It really isn't that tricky.

Don't forget that you are the clubs' greatest supporter and you go to every match. Additionally, as you no doubt have a season ticket then why would it cost you anything to go on Saturday.

From the top tier of the Kop it was impossible to see why the "goal" was disallowed or penalty given.

The City support was brilliant and it needs to be replicated on Saturday when presumably the Burton fans will be back in the Midland Road side.

The next referee performing at Valley Parade is Andy Woolmer from Northamponshire-he's not officiated a City match this season.

Yep, the fat tax dodger did us like the proverbial kipper. Not only did he nullify the threat of Reid, he stopped our best player, Jones, from influencing the game in any way, shape or form. Credit where credit's due for that.

It was a disappointing night and while we had the best of it territorially we created very little and didn't do enough to deserve a victory. All the whinging and moaning about the penalty decision is laughable. The centre forward was doing his job and Nelson wasn't strong enough to deal with it.

P.S. For those fans dissing Connell for his alleged miss. It wouldn't have counted had it gone in cos the lino had flagged for offside.

We couldn't beat a Rotherham side that had little ambition and had come for a draw. Surprising tactics given their close proximity to an automatic promotion place. Even their goalkeeper was wasting time taking his kicks from the start of the second half. A big blow losing Davies and Meredith. What a key player he is and it astounds me how well he has recovered from glandular fever. I just hope we can keep hold of him - I haven't seen a better full back in this division.
to be fair we did try to play early on but i agree we got drawn into a scrappy game and hoofed it too much. Towards the end we were rushing everything.

We were i also agree very reliant/hopeful on Reid and far too predictable in that area......

Yep, the fat tax dodger did us like the proverbial kipper. Not only did he nullify the threat of Reid, he stopped our best player, Jones, from influencing the game in any way, shape or form. Credit where credit's due for that.

It was a disappointing night and while we had the best of it territorially we created very little and didn't do enough to deserve a victory. All the whinging and moaning about the penalty decision is laughable. The centre forward was doing his job and Nelson wasn't strong enough to deal with it. Imho there was no foul and Parkinson and the fans would have been moaning long and loud had it been given against Hanson.

P.S. For those fans dissing Connell for his alleged miss. It wouldn't have counted had it gone in cos the lino had flagged for offside.
We have been moaning about a similar one going against Hanson. It happens in every game when he gets grabbed in the opposition penalty box, or don't you watch movement at set pieces...!

In addition to that, Hanson gave away a pen at Fleetwood, which was no worse than the one not given on Saturday. Then we have TWO chalked off on Tuesday or have you forgotten that? There was no more impact from Hanson than there was on Nelson. As for offside decision against Thommo, when you see it again, he was level at worst and the lino had the benefit of the penalty area marking to assist him...... BUT still got it wrong!!!!!

There's another way of getting better refs in this division that is Regionalising this division with the Blue square and have a Div3 North and South and make all refs full time officials the money saved on clubs having to travel will be saved and that plus the extra revenue from better crowds could help pay towards that. I don't know why they went away from that it worked. Bradford City in the days that the 3rd div north was in place were averaging over 8,000 per home game.
We must remember that grass roots football is the fabric of the football league we encourage the sport to non pros and we get players that have been missed by league clubs plus most of those who play at that level become football fans of one or another clubs.

For Gods sake Waynus, take your rose tinted glasses off and give it a rest will you? Football is full of 50/50 calls and over the course of a season we get as many going for us as against us.

With regards to Hanson, he gets obstructed and fouled in the box at set pieces just like every forward in every team in the country does. Akinfenwa, with some justification I might add, moaned a gut full after his tussle with Davies the other week, so get over it.

Your suggestion that Hansons challenge at Fleetwood was no worse than the one on Nelson that led to the penalty is ludicrous and not up for discussion as there is no comparison whatsoever.

As for the offside against Thompson, yes, I have seen it again, several times and with the benefit of slow motion and freeze frame I'm still not sure, the margins we're talking about are inches. What you haven't taken into account is the fact that in the blink of an eye Thompson going one way and the defender going the other has resulted in a gap of over a yard. To the naked eye it would look a clear offside and if I was a betting man I'd back the lino to make the same decision 999 times out of a 1,000. So stop your whinging and keep calm, we're still going to Wembley!

Not only did he nullify the threat of Reid, he stopped our best player, Jones, from influencing the game in any way, shape or form. Credit where credit's due for that. It was a disappointing night and while we had the best of it territorially we created very little and didn't do enough to deserve a victory. All the whinging and moaning about the penalty decision is laughable. The centre forward was doing his job and Nelson wasn't strong enough to deal with it. Imho there was no foul and Parkinson and the fans would have been moaning long and loud had it been given against Hanson. P.S. For those fans dissing Connell for his alleged miss. It wouldn't have counted had it gone in cos the lino had flagged for offside.[/p][/quote]We have been moaning about a similar one going against Hanson. It happens in every game when he gets grabbed in the opposition penalty box, or don't you watch movement at set pieces...! In addition to that, Hanson gave away a pen at Fleetwood, which was no worse than the one not given on Saturday. Then we have TWO chalked off on Tuesday or have you forgotten that? There was no more impact from Hanson than there was on Nelson. As for offside decision against Thommo, when you see it again, he was level at worst and the lino had the benefit of the penalty area marking to assist him...... BUT still got it wrong!!!!![/p][/quote]For Gods sake Waynus, take your rose tinted glasses off and give it a rest will you? Football is full of 50/50 calls and over the course of a season we get as many going for us as against us. With regards to Hanson, he gets obstructed and fouled in the box at set pieces just like every forward in every team in the country does. Akinfenwa, with some justification I might add, moaned a gut full after his tussle with Davies the other week, so get over it.

You retard. You just called City supporters "glory fans" moments after typing, "the same Bradford city that are STILL in the bottom tier of English football. only accy stan have been in this DROSS LEAGUE longer than city".

How can they be glory fans if they are watching dross in a dross league?

Someone said the 59 in you username was your IQ. Don't make me laugh- your IQ is no higher than the age of my teenage daughter...!

IF you are genuinely a City fan, stay away and stop 'torturing' yourself. Why watch this dross when you don't need to. Don't worry, you're 'support' won't be missed....!
my support is always needed
dross or not I stay loyal to my team
bottom tier dross or not
so waynus get a grip of yourself you plastic glory hunter and carry on lifting shirts
Any Tom, Dick or Abdul would still make more sense than you bantam59
