We need to deal with these losses against bottom teams, Tranmere, Notts cty
And Crewe have all beaten us this season whilst at the bottom, and shrews were at the bottom when that late goal went in as Notts won! Unlucky I know as it was the last kick but still....!
Is it over confidence? What ever it is parky needs to address it, another 12 points and look were we would be.

Listening to the Pulse, Ian Ormondroyd's sigh at the winning Shrewsbury goal said it all!

Shrewsbury were surely there for the taking but, like all the others at the bottom City have played -Tranmere. Notts County and Stevenage-NOT where the Bantams are concerned. We don't like to make things easier for ourselves!

It seems Kyle Bennett was City's MOTM, whilst Adam Reach had a poor game . James Hanson increased his fouls' total and Aaron McLean was once again, subbed, without a goal.

OK, the Shropshire side have always given City a 'game' but today, we, once again shot ourselves in the foot (or perhaps both feet!). The Walsall game is a must win with two away games following, but Walsall got a draw with Leyton Orient today-they'll be no pushovers!

Yes agreed, and they also need to sort out why we seem unable to hold on to a goal lead. Time and time again we score and then you just wait for one going in at the other end and far too many times it happens bang on cue. within minutes.

City did not play well today against a poor team a number of our players had a off day. These things do happen in football but are happening a little to often. However i am sure Mr Parkinson will sort it out before next season and give us a chance to move on

Second worst result of the season after Stevenage reverse. Think it has bbecome a psychological thing now...we panic even when ahead! Ridiculous result from the position we were in...we completely lack any authority in situations like this...obviously Stevenage, Shrewsbury, Carlisle & Tranmere are where they are in the league because they generally struggle to avoid losing..whereas City are where they are because they struggle to win - even when ahead. City's 12 defeats are only worse than seven clubs...but their 10 wins are pitifully few...the aforementioned teams have all capitalised on our inability to attack consistently and manage to win more than we lose..
Unsure if sports psychology isn't universally needed. ..alongside a better plan once ahead in matches - should have beaten Swindon, Gillingham, Stevenage and the Shrews today...Parky needs more goals from midfield. ..whatever it takes and a full pre season for Aaron

Bradford1903 says...

Muat admit, when I read about Shrewbury's home record I feared the worst, as when a side is on a long winless run, we usually oblige and gift them the 3 points.

We tend to approach matches against teams near the bottom as a mustn't lose, rather than trying to get that 1st goal and exploit their brittle confidence.

Our away record under Parky's tenure has been distinctly average, and it will continue to be, until we are more positive against sides below us in the table.

The concerning thing now though is it's our confidence that is continually brittle and we are beaten by sides who have no real fear about our play...we are a mid table side as long as we win six and draw three out the first ten matches again next season....in other words something needs to change in the summer. ..Rotherham are way ahead of us...I fear SKY TV will show this in 3 weeks time. ..and it may be time to make a change to personnel and style now Wells is long gone..home rresults are the main downfall...simply hardly ever win at VP...only six times all season. ...Walsall must be the seventh to lift everyone again before likely defeat at Orient.

I think that at the seasons end, assuming we are safe, then there must be a full review of our obvious failings, i.e the way we play, the way we lower our game to match sides below us, brittle defence, lack of goals from various sections, also the signings we need and also who should be making them. I'm not saying dump p.p but they should have long hard look at all this first before doing anything.

Wasn't expecting that, to take the lead with 10 minutes left should have secured a win especially at a team who's confidence is brittle. As I've said previously BCFC have enough quality in the team to secure the points needed but complacency can't be tolerated. I'm sure there will be a reaction for the Walsall game which will be another difficult fixture. Nine fixtures are left, play them with the same intensity shown against Port Vale, Colchester and MK Dons and we'll be fine. So dust ourselves down and we go again on Tuesday!!!!!

I disagree with your man of the match, yes the defence was shocking but how many times did Darby clear the ball in the first half when it looked like they were in and McArdle just stood around looking at everyone like he didn't know what to do. MOTM for me was Darby yet again, Bennett looked good coming forward but gave the ball away cheaply which they scored from, McClean didn't do a thing, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think he even got a solid shot off and Hanson was just as bad,

For me Bennett was one of the few out of the team that had a good game yes he was unfortunate to give the ball away on the odd occasion but he is not a defender two incidents in the whole 94 min of the game was when Hanson had a gift of a goal set up by Bennett in the 6yd box just the goalkeeper to beat and it looked like a pass back as opposed to a shot and the only other worthwhile talking point at the game was the attitude and application of some of the City players Derby was his usual self and Bennett was MOTM and when Doyle was replaced I was quite pleased because he had not contributed for the 40min he spent on the pitch and was hoping that bringing Jones on would have sparked some life in to a very poor performance by City trouble is it got even worse apart from the 4 successive corners that resulted in City scoring.

Hello All

I was at the game yesterday, my first of the season (due to work commitments) and I have to say it was a very poor game.

I am not going to comment on individual players as I am sure like someone said above it was an off day for Bradford. However what I can't forgive is when out keeper takes a goalkick, freekick or whatever and the city player does not even challenge for the ball (even if he can't win the header at least challenge). I even counted 3 times where the long ball was allowed to bounce in the middle of the pitch. Shocking,

Full marks to the Bradford crowd, and the Shrewsbury steward who told me how he always looked forward to the City fans coming to the ground as they are excellent ambassadors for football.

Shocking, Full marks to the Bradford crowd, and the Shrewsbury steward who told me how he always looked forward to the City fans coming to the ground as they are excellent ambassadors for football.

once again city snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory! what a set of plant pots. why is it only half the team turn up for a game? If only half the supporters turned up for a game the club would fold.

Shrewsbury were surely there for the taking but, like all the others at the bottom City have played -Tranmere. Notts County and Stevenage-NOT where the Bantams are concerned. We don't like to make things easier for ourselves!

It seems Kyle Bennett was City's MOTM, whilst Adam Reach had a poor game . James Hanson increased his fouls' total and Aaron McLean was once again, subbed, without a goal.

OK, the Shropshire side have always given City a 'game' but today, we, once again shot ourselves in the foot (or perhaps both feet!). The Walsall game is a must win with two away games following, but Walsall got a draw with Leyton Orient today-they'll be no pushovers!
I disagree with your man of the match, yes the defence was shocking but how many times did Darby clear the ball in the first half when it looked like they were in and McArdle just stood around looking at everyone like he didn't know what to do. MOTM for me was Darby yet again, Bennett looked good coming forward but gave the ball away cheaply which they scored from, McClean didn't do a thing, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think he even got a solid shot off and Hanson was just as bad,

hope Doyle's ok though
The Shrewsbury keeper dived full length to save an Aaron Mclean shot in the first half.
I said correct me if I'm wrong and you have, thanks for that

Just like to add ,, if I hear McDermott spouting about LUFC once more in that tripe piped onto this site I'm going to throw up. No Brian, nice guy that you are...you're stuck at a **** club with fickle supporters and to top it all, could have a convicted criminal installed as chairman. Now give it a rest!!!!

On a freezing cold day with a howling wind blowing and two poor teams playing each other it was never going to be anything but a dreadful game, and indeed it was. The disappointing thing for me, apart from the fact we let a side as bad as Shrewsbury beat us was that our two best players in recent weeks didn't show up. Reach looked like a nervous youngster on debut and couldn't get rid of the ball fast enough and Hanson was so ineffective my lot thought he was carrying a knock. With those two under performing our chronic lack of alternative attacking options was cruelly exposed and as someone has already alluded to, if Darbs (easily our best player) hadn't been there to make last minute clearances and interceptions on the rare occasions Shrewsbury threatened, Town would have had the game won long before their injury time winner.

Relegation anyone?

In fairness, I do not think their fans are fickle. An average home crowd of nearly 26,000 supporting a shambles of a club is something to be envious of.

They moan like hell Michael, it's a West Yorkshire trait. They do fan ticket deals since Bates left, hence the increase in fans, some of their fans were the first to moan about BCFC's cheap ST ticket deals but little is heard about LUFC doing the same for match day tickets. Leeds has a population of 750,000, (26,000), I'm guessing that isn't much different to BCFC averaging 14,000 with a population of 523,000, I agree the poor sods have to put up with a dire situation but it's nothing new to us case hardened BCFC fans, we really have stood the test of time.

Hopefully a win against Walsall tomorrow Michael.

I was not trying to include City in any form of comparison. However, as you have gone like for like, one thing that is clear is that City is being run with due care whilst United is in financial meltdown.

There is a lot to be said for maintaining a steady ship.
