We had good times last season but in football it's a long hard fight to get back.
I do hope the Bulls get back on track and get sport buzzing again for us all and no favouritism from the council for anyone.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. What was Jamie Foster saying? What a shambles! Men against boys.

Not surprised by anything tonight. Too many players not up to it. Plenty of effort but no ideas or direction. Very long season ahead.

Ieeds could have really took us to cleaners ,without getting out of second gear,thought they were almost apologetic at times. The way superleague is going, red hall have got it right..The format of eight elite clubs plus also rans,is about right. There is not the money or the quality of available players to suggest anything other. at this moment in time.,sad to say!!

Too true, Leeds were far too good, and that hurts being a lifelong Bradford northern /bulls fan, to be honest with the present performances its difficult to see where the next win will come from. Its time now for a change in coaching staff, if anything can be salvaged from this season, as much as i admire Francis Cummins for his fantastic efforts over the last 2 seasons, its clear that he isn't getting the best out of these players. We aren't going to win the league with this squad, but they are better than the dross that is being served up at the moment. Badly need fresh ideas and someone who can get the team to move up and tackle before the opposition get over the advantage line, it was pathetic at times last night, school boy stuff. It will be interesting to see how many folk turn up for the all pay cup game after last nights shambles - never thought i would see the day when a Bradford / Leeds derby would only attract 10000 to Odsal, sad times for our once great club
Northern Pig is right about this new league set up, there are only enough decent players around for 8 teams, sadly it will probably mean the end of a decent set up in professional RL, Cant see many folk turning out to watch the lower grade fare on offer, with the remaining teams playing in pretty meaningless leagues

Instead of having near on 50 points racked up against the Bulls every week maybe rebuilding in a league where the game are more competitive might not be a bad thing.

Third Generation Bull says...

Please don't blame the Coach. He is doing a good job, which no-one else in the game would want. Where other Superleague clubs start a game wanting to restrict the opponents to 10 points or less, the Bulls will be aiming to keep their opponents down below 10 tries. They are that bad.

The rot set in at Odsal in 2005, when Jamie Peacock left for Leeds. He was at the height of his powers. In one move he transformed Leeds and the Bulls started their decline. Since then there has been a revolving door at Odsal - talent out, dross in. The fault lies in 10 years of mis-management and incompetence. The club has been led by a succession of buffoons and self-serving con-men. They have brought us to this. A once-great club is now an embarrassment to its supporters and to the game.

It is sad to say, but the staff remaining at the Bulls are the ones who can't get a role anywhere else. Certainly nobody wants to come except for those who cannot get a game anywhere else. Fakir - tremendous coup for the club - really?

Cummins is working with no resources in an impossible position. He and the players deserve credit for trying so hard against all the odds. The club is going down. The only hope of a bright future is a multi-million input and some decent management at the top. In that impossible dream, I wonder in that dream, how many of the current squad would be kept?

I think I agree with Caledonia .There are now probably only eight teams that can compete with each other.Three or four of those are only just surviving.Remember in Australia not that many years ago the same situation was developing,the A.R.L. stepped in and forced mergers on clubs.Either that or they were not going to be accepted into the League.Sure there was lots of animosity and supporters against it but look at the League now.None of our top clubs would win the A.R.L.It is time the R.F.L. in this country gave some clubs the same ultimatum,either merge or you are out of Super League.What is the point in having two or three clubs,who are all struggling,in a ten mile radius.Bradford and Keighley should be forced to merge with a purpose built ground,Cas,Wakey,Fev
. the same.Hudds,Halifax.,
same.The whole of Cumbria,one team.France,one team.London,one team.Etc.etc.In my opinion it is the only solution to save the game as a whole .

Why would a well run club like Keighley be interested in merging with your basket case of a club.
