AA will come to the rescue and help Bradford City motor up table

The double act of Andrew Davies, pictured, and Aaron Mclean can reignite City’s stalled season

Julian Rhodes believes the presence of two strong characters can pull City out of their current rut.

The Bantams face fourth-placed Preston tomorrow in search of a first win in ten games – and first at Valley Parade since September.

Aaron Mclean will make his home debut and defensive lynchpin Andrew Davies could return from three months out after knee surgery.

Rhodes believes the A team of Aaron and Andrew will prove instrumental in reversing the slide.

City’s drop out of play-off contention followed the departure of Davies, who last played in a 2-0 victory at Walsall on October 5. They have won only once since.

Joint-chairman Rhodes said: “It’s no coincidence. Look back last season and even the season before and when he played we were a better team.

“Andrew was a huge signing for us and it was a massive disappointment when he got the injury. It’s a fact that things haven’t gone as well since that happened.

“But that’s what happens at any team if you lose your best players.

“I’m no medical expert but my understanding is that there’s no reason why he can’t come back the same player that he was.

“I think everybody knows Andrew’s mentality. He’ll be looking at the play-offs.

“Andrew could come back and we could win a couple and all of a sudden it is a different picture.”

Rhodes sees the capture of Mclean, who had a hand in both goals in last week’s fightback at Sheffield United, as a necessary pick-me-up for the squad in the wake of losing Nahki Wells.

He added: “Aaron coming in is a good signing. We’ve got someone in from the Premier League and he’s a big character.

“I think a lot of the lads were looking round thinking ‘we’re on a bad run, Nahki’s gone, what’s going to happen’.

“I like the way he took the number 21 shirt. He wants to fill his boots so he takes the same number – that’s brilliant.

“I know Phil spoke to a few other strikers and they were very nervous about trying to replace Nahki. Aaron on the other hand relishes the challenge.

“I like that in a striker. Half of Nahki’s success is down to his arrogance on the pitch.

“You can’t have a shrinking violet if you need someone to stick the ball in the back of the net.”

You're right Peter, Rhodes keeps his cards close to his chest that's for sure. Sometimes Lawn opens his mouth before thinking which I'm sure doesn't always go down well at Football League towers. Our joint chairmen are very much like chalk and cheese.

Andrew Davies is an excellent player. Hebis as important to our team as Vincent kompany to Manchester City. If kompany can make such a massive difference to a multi million world class team like man city we should not underestimate how important he is to our team. With the imminent return of Davo I expect we will see an immediate upturn in our form and fortunes

for starters you have no idea how much they paid for him and it makes no difference where he goes he wont be playing against us this season. Rumours (ONLY Rumours) are that its the add on fees that will make us money for nahki. Goal bonus plus appearance bonus and sell on fees which will probably make us upwards of 2.5 to 3 million if he goes to a big club from The dogs.

Here's a thought.....
Why don't we just move on, its very much history now.

Fact is, we got good money for a player, an asset that would have been worth less by the time the next selling window arrived and its the first time in a long time we have actually got decent money for one of our players.
We have since replaced him with (hopefully) a very good player for our league for a fraction of the cost, this player brings with him a LOT more experience.

I for one think under the circumstances (those being we were going to lose NW sooner or later) that our chairmen have done good solid business, and only time will tell as to whether AM does the business for us, but I believe with PP at the helm and the support of the City faithful, he will.

As for selling to a local club - by all accounts NW said he wanted to join them, end of, so didn't look like we had much choice in the matter.

Time will also tell with NW as to whether we did well or not out of the deal, and if he does well in his career, we as a club do better and make more money. Win/win situation. what was the alternative in your mind? Let him go for nothing 18 months later?
You can only sell an asset for what the buyers are prepared to pay, the fact we got all of the 'add ons' will hopefully make the deal a lot better for us in time.

also as a side note, the actual sales figure was 'undisclosed' so where did £1.2m come from.

And for the record, I believe our chairmen do a great job for our club and represent us extremely well - ignoring the odd foot in mouth comment!!

Back on the winning band waggon tomorrow and A-mac to bag his first of many - fingers crossed!

Goal bonus plus appearance bonus and sell on fees which will probably make us upwards of 2.5 to 3 million if he goes to a big club from The dogs.
MMMmmm......So your quite happy with the JOKE fee!...BUT hey we have "add ons"....ERM.....the add ons kick in assuming Wells scores LOADS of GOALS for Hudders?...and if a big club come in for him "HAVING SCORED LOADS OF GOALS FOR HUDDERS" we will get 10%-15% of any fee....Who gets the 85%-90%, Oh yes HUDDERS!. SO we all have to hope HUDDERS have a really great couple of Seasons then!?. Cant work out what DISGUSTS ME MORE....Hudders having a SUPER couple of seasons.....OR City fans like you!!
I think on reflection this guy is a WUM/Troll no one can be this stoopid
He aint a Troll just a Douche! Who spends most of his time out of the country on some golf coarse in Dubai. Thats why he doesnt think 2k a goal is much, as this is prob what he spends on golf club cleaner a month! ; 0 p CTID
But £2k a goal ISN'T a great deal in footballing terms...! If he was to be prolific and scores 30 goals in the Championship next season, it will only raise £60k. Hardly a significant fee for the probably 'golden boot' of the English 2nd Tier...! That wouldn't even pay for FC Halifax Town's loading scorer...!

I don't often agree with Shaun, but he is right about the add-ons and the money we allegedly have received already.

In relation to the comment by PCBA, you are wrong my friend. The sell-on clause is 20% of any future PROFIT (not fee), thus we would only get 20% of £3.7m (using your example) = £740k. D&R got nearly as much as us for selling on Gayle to Posh, before they sold him to Palace.

Who cares, we're earning money (however small) for a guy that doesn't play for us anymore, and cost us nothing to begin with, and helped us get to the CC Final and promotion.

He chose & moved to Huddersfield for one reason & one reason only, his girlfriend is from Huddersfield & she is having a baby! They settled in the area, even when he was at City!

Like Parky said he wasn't interested in going anywhere else but Huddersfield, no brainer for a young lad under the circumstances!

Roll on McClean city's new goal machine............

The add ons have started, 2k per goal this season, won't add up to much but if the ratdogs flog Wells for £5m we get £1m of that which is then a profit of £2.3m+ ......he didn't want to stay, you can blame the board as much as you like but I'd say the player was more than guilty in this instance
Yippee!!.....£2k tucked away!!...BET YOU CANT WAIT FOR HIM TO SCORE 30-40???
Can't wait for you to lose the use of your hands if I'm totally honest.

I think on reflection this guy is a WUM/Troll no one can be this stoopid
He aint a Troll just a Douche! Who spends most of his time out of the country on some golf coarse in Dubai. Thats why he doesnt think 2k a goal is much, as this is prob what he spends on golf club cleaner a month! ; 0 p CTID
But £2k a goal ISN'T a great deal in footballing terms...! If he was to be prolific and scores 30 goals in the Championship next season, it will only raise £60k. Hardly a significant fee for the probably 'golden boot' of the English 2nd Tier...! That wouldn't even pay for FC Halifax Town's loading scorer...!

I don't often agree with Shaun, but he is right about the add-ons and the money we allegedly have received already.

In relation to the comment by PCBA, you are wrong my friend. The sell-on clause is 20% of any future PROFIT (not fee), thus we would only get 20% of £3.7m (using your example) = £740k. D&R got nearly as much as us for selling on Gayle to Posh, before they sold him to Palace.
That still gives us over £2M for a player who cost nothing but wages, plus the goal bonus coming into the club not going out, plus other add-ons after appearances etc. Let's face it, none of us know the true details of the transfer package and are picking at scraps, we all had our own valuations and there were darker forces at work behind the scenes including the player himself. He has gone, we have to live without him.
