I'm hoping for an offer we can refuse! Bantams boss keeping his fingers crossed no mega-bucks bids come in for Nahki Wells

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: INJURY-TIME HERO: Nahki Wells celebrates his late, late equaliser with James Hanson and Raffaele De Vita INJURY-TIME HERO: Nahki Wells celebrates his late, late equaliser with James Hanson and Raffaele De Vita

Phil Parkinson issued another plea to hang on to Nahki Wells after City’s jewel in the crown saved his side once again.

Wells took his goal tally for the season to 15 with a spectacular free-kick in stoppage time to salvage a 1-1 draw with leaders Leyton Orient.

His latest strike will add to the clamour for his signature when the transfer window reopens in just over a fortnight.

City remain keen to offer Wells a lucrative extension to his contract, which has 18 months to run, but have not been able to pin him down for talks.

A host of clubs have been linked with the Bermuda ace but Parkinson hopes the Valley Parade hierarchy will rebuff any bids – unless they are too big to refuse.

“I’ve said all along that I want to keep our best players at the club,” said the City chief. “I want to do that and improve on what we’ve got because we’re in a tough division.

“It’s very, very competitive and ideally I don’t want to weaken what we’ve got.

“My hope is that there’s not a level of offer for him which the board will accept and we can keep him.

“I’m also realistic. If there is an offer that is so good for him and the club we might have to look elsewhere but my thoughts are that, fingers crossed, we can keep him.

“It was a top class free-kick but he practices those. They don’t come overnight. He’s worked at that ever since he’s been at the club.”

Wells’ last-gasp equaliser made it five draws in six for the Bantams at the start of a four-game run against sides above them in the promotion race.

They have now gone five without a win at Valley Parade but Parkinson praised the response after City fell behind for the third home game running.

Lloyd James had fired Leyton Orient in front just before half-time – from their only shot on target.

Parkinson added: “We’re having a period, especially at home, when teams are scoring against the run of play. But it was a great goal.

“I asked Jon McLaughlin afterwards ‘have you had a save to make?’ He hadn’t.

“I know we’re in a higher division this year and teams get one chance and take it.

“But my experience tells me that if we keep playing the way we do, we might have a spell where we score against the run of play.

“We might get a spectacular goal and probably don’t deserve it. There are swings and roundabouts throughout the course of the season."

Parkinson was once again left cursing the absence of a home penalty. City felt there were three cases for a spot-kick, particularly early on when Wells was nudged over by Romain Vincelot.

Parkinson said: “People will say they’ve heard it all before and I’ve mentioned it every week. But the way we play in terms of pinning teams in and getting a lot of balls in and around the box, I just don’t know how we’ve not had more penalties.

“To only get one (this season) is strange. It doesn’t seem right given the amount of dominance we’ve had in games.”

If someone is fouled in the box it's a penty, refs should not be swayed by pp saying we never get any. I assume during matches when u see a blatant penalty shout turned down you sit there and say "that clearly wasn't a foul" every single time, that is if you go to games, don't just wait til the match report in the T&A keyboard at the ready.

I'll tell you what is more likely to be swaying part time referees, who probably spend mon-fri 9-5 working modest paid job... £70k? If you can pay a footballer on thousand(s) a week to commit a foul, it would be pretty naive to think a ref on a normal wage can't be bought in the same way. I know I'd do it. I'd swing something in my job for 1 off payment like that if some one asked.

I wouldn't be surprised if in the not too distant future some of these bizarre decisions suddenly make sense.

As for criticising his team selection, you complain that it's the team he inherited, well before he took over that team we were scrapping for our lives at the bottom of L2. He's got them playing well, to their potential. It's them keeping the new signings out of the team in 99% of cases, he recruited back up, which in cases of bates and Yeats has been utilised when needed.

It's probably hard to understand if all you ever do is read T&A match reports tho or spend all game complaining that we shouldn't have had a penalty we didn't get, or Reid dived when goodison smashed him in the face, or shouting at opposition defenders to make sure they work harder to also injure wells when taking him out as he runs into the penalty box...

That time wells nearly got snapped in half... Never a penalty. All refs are perfect angles who are 100% correct and honest.

Pp quit moaning...

If you don't expect to go up, why are you criticising PPs team selection/recruitmen
t? We are top half, that's more than most expected, including me, hence why I'm not the one criticising team selection
.

FYI haven't missed an away game for almost 3 seasons. Only missed a handful of wk night games whilst 100 miles away from bfd at Uni, and been going/taken since I was 2 (before I can remember). Altho the most important thing, I support the team and the manager and anyone else at the club rather than hiding behind a keyboard picking fault cos I have time to kill before Jezza starts.


I have work to do now, have a nice day picking fault with the team and manager who took us to wembley twice. Byeeeeeeee

Said it before, you're wasting your money.

You don't see what you are looking at. You clearly know very little about the game no matter how many years you have been going or how many matches you have been to.

Obviously old enough to have grandkids, do everyone a favour, take em to a park on a Saturday then we don't have to read your drivel on a Monday.

A great point against a team who use exactly the same style as us. Difference being they were really concerned about Hanson so deployed a man in front to attempt to negate his jumps and a centre half directly up his harris. This resulted in very little chances for Nahkli to move onto but did give us the wide options more. That was no coincidence that Thompson had his best spell of the season and Reid was flying in the first half, if plan A didn't work and it didn't we used plan B.

One shot on target is probably the worst effort by any team at VP this year but boy were they organised in defence and midfield.

My concern ---should Wells go for several million. Who would he be replaced by?. What cost to replace him. If he goes --there will be more matches lost this Season. That was self-evident, when Wells was out injured.

When Rhodes sold Windass--to keep the club afloat financially. City were relegated to Div.2. Ii took a long time to get back to Div.1. Could the same thing happen again if Wells and Hanson go??.

as you state if i ever go to games ,let me tell you iv been going down valley for 43 years ,i am and have had season ticket for as long as i can remember ,shall we compare game we have attended away from home this season ,iv only missed one now tell me how many you go to ,are you going peterbough sat i am ,,as for penalty decistions have you ever heard the saying swings and roundabouts ,the problem down at city is to many people like yourself thought we could just walk through this div after we had a good start ,there are team who have been in this div for years who challenge for promotion every year who are better equipped to go up than us ,bcfc is a massive part of my life but sometimes you got to realistic and say we just not good enough at the moment
So what? 43 years and learnt precisely nothing. The problem as I see it is many peole like 'real city gent' who go down to watch City year after year and have no more idea than the day they first visited. The shear ignorance of some of these people who say they been watching City for years and years is breathtaking. It has been said that one is never too old to learn and improve ones knowledge. There are people on here who want to announce to the world that this will never apply to them. Here's to the next 43 years!

Source/proof?

They have admitted they are slightly over budget, the signs from both of their T&A comments last week seemed to be a soft soaping in preparation for his departure but they have also offered a contract extension which would make him the highest paid player at VP.

If they were that far over budget they would not be in a position to offer such and doubt they would make the statement on the off chance that he took said offer.

This isn't the Bulls here, the men at the top do try to keep a modicum of control on the finances and the gates have been above what was originally budgeted for.

Decent enough performance. There should be no major complaints other than from the intellectually challenged. The key with the NW situation is to be looking for the right replacement and set out our stall as a club who can identify and hone good young talent consistently. Hopefully Baldwins operation has some more in the pipeline.

Cheers, not seen that one.

Something doesn't ring true with it all though. A club in L1 or L2 this season can only spend 60% of turnover on wages, so how can they have such a deficit? Especially given that gates on a weekly basis are slightly higher than anticipated.

Last seasons cup/tv/play off money cannot be used for wages this year but it can be used for improvements and servicing debt, therefore less of the actual turnover/profit would be needed for the above meaning that the full 60% could more or less go towards wages.

I think we are just being set up for a bit of turmoil if I'm honest. Hope I'm wrong but there are very different messages coming out from various sources and the comparison of said stories.

Parkinson go where ?.,Prior to last season, he only achieved achieved promotion at Colchester and failed in the championship with all his clubs.
Look at the state of those clubs when he started and when he finished. They are the ones who lost a gem of a manager by getting rid of him. He wasn't given enough time but he was trying to put in place the same eco systems he has brought to Valley Parade. The Championship is an extremely difficult division to manage in because the Promised Land of the Premiership is just a fingertip away and the pressure to get there is phenomenal. Phil Parkinson's coaching qualifications and man management skills are second to none and I for one want to see him at Valley Parade for years to come.

Need some info on a BCFC game, BCFC V SWANSEA CITY SAT MARCH 12 1994. Was this the game Geoffrey Richmond did the quid a kid for the first time.? BCFC won the game 2-1 did Lee Power score?

On the topic above, don't think Wells will move in January and depending on how BCFC do this season his future will be decided in the summer. With a bit of luck we'll be playing the scummers next season with Wells scoring a hatrick for BCFC.

I'm happy he's the gaffer. City did well in recruiting him and it was a chance for him to rebuild his career.

As is, I think he's a traditional English manager in that he's tactically dogmatic and one dimensional.

The point ultimately is our fans hype him up beyond what the average chairman or rival fans see him as; a manager who oversaw a unique cup run.

He's provided stability which this club needed, especially as two seasons ago relegation was narrowly avoided. Hopefully there's a push for play-offs as whilst going up might not be viable, it's to good to be in the mix so the team is stronger next season.

Udders endured much misery for a few years in the PO's and Brentford the same but they ultimately went up after much persistence and The Bees look strong to do it this year.

A good finish to this season and Parkinson will be touted but he has a big project at Bradford City that the fans and most importantly, he, will want to see the succesfull fruition of.

A few points:

'PP' is right to hope Nahki stays as he is irreplaceable, but if he goes we at least require a decent player to come in for Nahki's position. So I hope the mgr. is 'hedging his bes'' by having a short list of possible replacements. The time to think about this is now and not when 'NW' is on his way out.

Secondly, on the subject of penalties, I thought the ref. on Saturday was a good one overall. It was clear he was not the card-happy type but one who wanted the game to flow, I prefer this kind of referee overall, despite eg the time-wasting going unpunished. It made for a better match.

'Wide Of the Post' site mentioned a point I wholeheartedly agree with and have mentioned numerous times on here. ie 'PP' clearly doesn't trust/want to play too many of our fringe players which effectively makes them useless to us. We must have decent fringe squad players who are fit to be brought on as subs during matches. If those we have don't 'fit the bill' we must move them on and get some others that do!

Its this simple... With Wells, a top 6 finish is Very Achievable.Without, Mid Table is Likely.
This is the reality of it. We dont have enough goals in us from different areas, I mean taking Man City v Arsenal as an example (yes i know they are a far superior players, but still), how many different scorers were there for City? (There was five by the way).
My point is this we will not get much if any money back this season from the sale of Wells to bolster the attack IMO. So that means that we are looking at losing 15-20+ goals which equals a lot less 1-1 draws and more 1-0 loses.
I, Like many on here dont want to see Wells go and hope he signs the new contract. but if he doesnt, then he will be gone by the end of Jan. Simples.
CTID!

Cheers Nowt Fresh, great info there mate.

Regarding Wells... imperative that the club does everything in its power to keep Wells, history says that if you sell your best players who have to be replaced...you end up wasting cash with the club much worse off. Those in charge of the club and its welfare should remember the absolute disaster of selling the best players at this time of year. Yes we were in dire financial straights and the sales were needed last time in this division, this time that is not the case, no excuses, there is absolutely no reason to sell Wells til the summer and if we are promoted then he would surely play for BCFC in the Championship. Time for courage from the joint chairmen.

First let me just say I enjoyed the game on Saturday and to me we edged it, Reid had a good first half and was kept a bit quiet in the second, their lad scored a cracking goal and Wells's free kick was a cracker, no we don't want to see Wells go, yes once again we should have had at least one pen, now let's have a rant about time wasting, now at the end of a game taking the ball into the corner that's a tactic, some of the thing's that go on are down right annoying, we have people dropping the ball and running away, one player even tried to bounce the ball out of the back of the stand on Saturday, nothing get's me more than blatant time wasting It is the sort of thing that will stop me going to football, It rates along with players going over when not even tackled, rant over.

What Bradford should do is bring in the 2 very talented players from Bermuda. One scored 24 goals in 19 games last season on loan from Crawley Town. His name is Jonte Smith. He will b the answer for Nahkiells leaving, the kid is only 19 years old and tal and aile, fast as lightning and Crawley for some reason sits him on the bench every game. He was o loa for Met Police last season, they hated for him t leve.
Another very good Bermuda striker is Antoine Russell playing for non leaguer Ikleston but a great striker,a little older but great finisher. He scored a hattrick last week also for them... Nahki was a diamomd in te rough. He never was given a chance at Carlisle to be honest. Same as Jonte, he is not been ive a real chance there either.... I honestly think they can calm the Bradford City supporters nerves...

You could widen the scouting net by fishing off the shores of Bermuda? I am sure there will be a Bermudan equivalent to Billy the Fish (the long-serving/prolifi
c goal-scorer from Viz magazine).
