Kyel Reid hammer blow leaves Bantams boss Phil Parkinson 'devastated' as search for left midfielder begins

IT NEVER RAINS BUT IT POURS: City have launched a search for a replacement left winger after Kyel Reid’s long-term loss added to Phil Parkinson’s growing injury list

IT NEVER RAINS BUT IT POURS: City have launched a search for a replacement left winger after Kyel Reid’s long-term loss added to Phil Parkinson’s growing injury list

City are now chasing a left midfielder as well as a full back after the bombshell news that Kyel Reid is out for the season.

Phil Parkinson fears the influential winger will be sidelined for “six to eight months” after a scan yesterday revealed he tore his anterior cruciate ligament against Sheffield United.

Reid was stretchered off after the challenge with Blades defender Tony McMahon amid initial reports that he had twisted his knee.

But the medical tests confirmed the worst-case scenario that he will be unable to kick a ball not only for the rest of the current campaign but through the next pre-season as well.

With Reid’s contract up at the end of June, it could also raise questions over his future with the club.

Mark Yeates, who has failed to convince in recent appearances, is his obvious immediate replacement within the current squad but he is not a like-for-like player.

Teenage wideman Jordan Graham is currently on a month’s youth loan from Aston Villa but he is seen as back-up cover from the bench.

So Parkinson will be given the green light by the board to bring someone else in for that left-sided position on loan, with possibly a view of extending it in the summer.

Parkinson was already on the look-out for a specialist left back to cover broken-foot victim James Meredith and wants someone on board in time for next Tuesday’s home game against Preston.

The Meredith and Reid axis has been a key part of City’s attacking make-up and now it has been blown apart in the space of a fortnight. Left back Meredith is likely to miss another six weeks after his recent operation.

Parkinson said: “Those two work well together in terms of assists and getting in a lot of crosses. We’ve got to try and rectify that and make sure we are as effective down that left-hand side.

“We’re obviously devastated to lose Reidy because the lads know he is an important player for us with his pace. It was a quiet dressing room at half-time after his injury.”

Reid’s team-mates took to Twitter to voice their sympathy. Alan Connell said: “Football can be cruel. Savour the highs because there are many lows.

“(I’m) gutted for Reidy on his injury. He has everyone’s love and support.”

Andrew Davies is getting nearer to a return but the Valley Parade casualty list remains lengthy.

As well as the long-term absentees, there are others still carrying injuries and several players will visit the specialist today for injections.

Nathan Doyle, Raffael De Vita, Mark Yeates, Matt Taylor and youngster Oliver McBurnie are all nursing problems which Parkinson hopes can be eased during the current break from action.

The Bantams boss said: “It’s the same as the last time we didn’t have a Saturday game. We’ve got to use the time to get some of the injuries right.

“Doyley and Raffa are still not 100 per cent. I know Doyley came off the bench but he’s been carrying problems with his groin – those two players in particular we’ve got to get back.

“Olly McBurnie has had hamstring trouble, Yeatesy is having an injection in his knee which he’s been struggling with and Matty Taylor is another one still not ready.

“There are so many things we’ve got to get sorted leading up to the Preston home game.”

Why don't City try playing same formation as Huddersfield 3-5-2 ?
We then only need one left wing-back who can replace both Meredith & Reid and we can strengthen central defence & midfield.
In fact Meredith can play left wing-back when he is fit.

Possible City team playing 3-5-2

Johnny Mac
McArdle. Bates. Davies
Darby. Doyle. Ravenhill. Jones. Meredith
McLean. Hanson

It is hypothetical given that Davies and Meredith will be out until after the transfer window closes.

It is highly unlikely that PP will opt to change his formation at a time when injuries to key men are rife. We acknowledge that something will have to be done now (that is, to bring in like for like players in a 4-4-2) and I think PP will keep to type.

In terms of what you have suggested, the wing backs (Darby and Meredith) will have to work twice as hard in terms of fulfilling two roles. I think that Darby is better defensively whilst Meredith is better going forwards. I also think that Meredith would have difficulty in tracking back over the course of 90 minutes.

This period ,this Season, is going to be a very strong test of the Manager & Coaching Staff. An even stronger test for The Joint Chairmen.
*
The Transfer Window is still OPEN. The Club must scour the possible players needed, and move very quickly. Before the Window closes.

I agree with trying different team formations, along with a different style of play. City have been too predictable recently. Which is why there has been too many draws.

It really is a very testing time now for everyone concerned with City. Not only the Management,Board, but the Supporters as well.

The season has been turned on its head in a few weeks. I was so confident that with Davo back in the team and a replacement for Wells with a proven goal scorer at this level, we woulld have a positive run to the end of the season and dare i say it,the possibility of a top 6 finish.
Now, we are looking at damage limitation and a Lge 1 survival mission.
As Connell said "Football can be so cruel sometimes".
I still have faith in PP and the board to put something like a team together before the Preston game, BUT (and its a big butt, like Beyonce big!) will this mean PP has to change the way we play? Will he change the formation to suite to depleated ranks? WILL WE FINNALLY GET THAT ATTACKING MIDFIELDER WE HAVE ALL BEEN CRYING OUT FOR ALL SEASON!!???
Only time will tell!? WATCH THIS SPACE!!

Gutted for Reidy and the team. Always wants the ball and willing to run at defenders even when its not going his way. We are not having much luck with regards to injuries but that's football.
What we need is Yates to step up and show everyone why we signed him.

The one thing he should not do is to change the formation by virtue of a squad being unsettled through injury.

It is the worst time to consider such an option.

No I don't think it will mean a change in style. The priority are (temporary?) replacements for Reidy and James Meredith. Just how many 'attacking' players do you and your associates want? Phil plays with two up front (which many teams don't) and he plays with two wingers (which many teams don't). This obsession with an attacking/creative midfielder is ridiculous. Were one to arrive it would be a winger out of the team or one up front. Then you will be accusing Phil of being negative, which is what happened before remember?

As I said on the previous Kyel Reid threat...Get well soon Kyel, hopefully you'll make a full recovery and be playing a full part in BCFC games sometime next season. You'll be sorely missed that's for sure.

Hopefully BCFC can bring in a player with power and pace on loan to fill the void left by Reid's injury. Looking at the team as it is , we certainly lack pace, that needs to be rectified hopefully before the Preston North End game.

Regarding the change of formation alluded to above, don't think that will happen, Our game is all about power and pace, the pace lost will be replaced with loan players and the 442 that has served BCFC pretty well will imo continue. Can't see any change of tactics at this stage of the season, not a good idea. Keep it simple until summer then there will be new players coming in. Consolidate then go again!!!!

No I don't think it will mean a change in style. The priority are (temporary?) replacements for Reidy and James Meredith. Just how many 'attacking' players do you and your associates want? Phil plays with two up front (which many teams don't) and he plays with two wingers (which many teams don't). This obsession with an attacking/creative midfielder is ridiculous. Were one to arrive it would be a winger out of the team or one up front. Then you will be accusing Phil of being negative, which is what happened before remember?
No, i disagree Peter. It would mean we have someone who can come in to the midfield and give Jonsey/Doyle a well earned rest for a start and give a new angle of attack, rather than the same old same old "pass it out wide and run for the by-line, before attempting to get the ball into a box where, if we are lucky Big jim or Mclean are waiting" as they seem to be the only 2 who will attempt to get in there!?
Other teams have sussed us out and we need to change how we play from time to time, especially now the left wing attacking force has been destroyed.
STILL CTID!!

Obviously the summer will bring quite a few new faces, as I've mentioned before I'd like to see Dean Furman brought back and also Oscar Jansson to compete with JM for the gloves. At the minute we need a couple of loans on the left, once they are acquired it'll see us home safely to the close season where BCFC can regroup and plan for the new season.

I am not sure what you are advocating, You invite opinions and then oppose them.

Do you want 4-4-2 (with a forward thinking central midfield player) or a change to a 3-5-2?

Without pre-empting your response, the 3-5-2 is a dated method that was most used in the 1990's (by the Polish). However, the formation became useless as opponents began to employ a 4-5-1.

A lot of team, including those in League One, use a lone striker and so any move to a 3-5-2 is only deployed in the closing minutes when a team is chasing a game. This has the obvious effect of increasing the chances of a goal at either end.

I don't see what difference competition for the GK gloves would make. It's not as if JM is shipping goals and letting in howlers every game. Even if he was it wouldn't be because he knows he's got a place regardless of performance.

Surely the whole idea of competition is to replace someone who's level of performance has dropped, McLaughlin is in that catagory, hence the need for competition for the gloves.

I still have faith in PP and the board to put something like a team together before the Preston game, BUT (and its a big butt, like Beyonce big!) will this mean PP has to change the way we play? Will he change the formation to suite to depleated ranks? WILL WE FINNALLY GET THAT ATTACKING MIDFIELDER WE HAVE ALL BEEN CRYING OUT FOR ALL SEASON!!??? Only time will tell!? WATCH THIS SPACE!!

No I don't think it will mean a change in style. The priority are (temporary?) replacements for Reidy and James Meredith. Just how many 'attacking' players do you and your associates want? Phil plays with two up front (which many teams don't) and he plays with two wingers (which many teams don't). This obsession with an attacking/creative midfielder is ridiculous. Were one to arrive it would be a winger out of the team or one up front. Then you will be accusing Phil of being negative, which is what happened before remember?
I suppose it depends on what you call attacking. on some of our attacks we might only have one player in the box.

No, i disagree Peter. It would mean we have someone who can come in to the midfield and give Jonsey/Doyle a well earned rest for a start and give a new angle of attack, rather than the same old same old "pass it out wide and run for the by-line, before attempting to get the ball into a box where, if we are lucky Big jim or Mclean are waiting" as they seem to be the only 2 who will attempt to get in there!? Other teams have sussed us out and we need to change how we play from time to time, especially now the left wing attacking force has been destroyed. STILL CTID!!
I am not sure what you are advocating, You invite opinions and then oppose them. Do you want 4-4-2 (with a forward thinking central midfield player) or a change to a 3-5-2? Without pre-empting your response, the 3-5-2 is a dated method that was most used in the 1990's (by the Polish). However, the formation became useless as opponents began to employ a 4-5-1. A lot of team, including those in League One, use a lone striker and so any move to a 3-5-2 is only deployed in the closing minutes when a team is chasing a game. This has the obvious effect of increasing the chances of a goal at either end.
it doesn't look like there will be much coming in from the by line, so I think we should rest Hanson and play Gray with Mclean. and tell Kennedy to get his arse into gear and get forward to support.

Why don't City try playing same formation as Huddersfield 3-5-2 ?
We then only need one left wing-back who can replace both Meredith & Reid and we can strengthen central defence & midfield.
In fact Meredith can play left wing-back when he is fit.

Possible City team playing 3-5-2

Johnny Mac
McArdle. Bates. Davies
Darby. Doyle. Ravenhill. Jones. Meredith
McLean. Hanson
Not winning in 3 months and having no left sided players is not the time to start a wildly different formation.

None of the players have any clue how to play it, Darby/Meredith are nowhere near good enough or fast enough to play it.

Reid Good luck lad and i trust City will keep faith with you and renew your contract now you are injured I am sure they will. This is football and happens to all teams from time to time it is are turn now but will be overcome given time as these things are. Luckily we do have a small leeway as regards to points won so hopefully we will be OK this season. BUT now is the time to stay supporting the team and in doing so giving them a new lease of life to enable them to go on to Promotion next year Please keep going to VALLEY PARADE

I think you are spot on.

Without using ready excuses, this is a team that has done well to be in the middle of the third division. The objective is to survive and then re-group in the summer. It is going to be a battle from here on in.

Changing a formation in order to accommodate new personnel is not a solution. Nor is it the correct way to react to an injury crisis. Deal with known variables.

I suppose it depends on what you call attacking. on some of our attacks we might only have one player in the box.
That has been quite noticeable for much of this season. One of the reasons Reid hung on to the ball as much as he did was due to having very little to target in the middle, the right hand sided midfielder should always strive to make a '3rd striker' and arrive at the far post as well as having the two main forwards in the area and at least one of the midfield attacking the edge of the box for a pull back or anything that is half cleared.

Too many comparisons to Premier League stars.

Also, his injury at Rochdale (2012) was horrendous and I don't think that people recognise the psychological harm this can cause; both short term and further down the line.

No I don't think it will mean a change in style. The priority are (temporary?) replacements for Reidy and James Meredith. Just how many 'attacking' players do you and your associates want? Phil plays with two up front (which many teams don't) and he plays with two wingers (which many teams don't). This obsession with an attacking/creative midfielder is ridiculous. Were one to arrive it would be a winger out of the team or one up front. Then you will be accusing Phil of being negative, which is what happened before remember?
WHAT WOULD YOU KNOW REGARD BRADFORD CITY????. You NEVER go to games!!...ONLY SKIPTON LIBRARY!!...10am till 11am.
A very staid and boring contribution.
Cant REMEMBER any of your contributions!!
I doubt you would. Too busy throwing handbags with Peter.

Yes. Too many comparisons to Premier League stars. Also, his injury at Rochdale (2012) was horrendous and I don't think that people recognise the psychological harm this can cause; both short term and further down the line. Such a shame that it takes a dreadful incident like the one at Sheffield to wake people up.
i have an alarm clock........
And I bet you are hopeless at winding that up as well.

You are unhappy with the situation. But Why the board and not Parkinson? It's not like he hasn't been allowed to sign anyone.

There is absolutely no way the club will not support Reid, he'll be given a month to month contract in the summer until he regains full fitness with the proviso that he stays with BCFC til the following summer.
