Bulls in crisis - reaction on the streets of Bradford VIDEO
Reporter James Rush has been out in Bradford city centre speaking to people about the desperate financial situation Bradford Bulls find themselves in.
“It will be a shame for them to go under, so many people are involved in it. You see a lot of people talking about sports, if they do well people talk about them, so it would be a shame,” Jawed Iqbal, 55, of Great Horton, Bradford.
“I’m not a Bulls supporter but if they were to fold I think it would be sad for the city because I know there are a lot of Bulls supporters in the city. I don’t think there’s any harm in them asking, I’m not necessarily confident they will get everything they need, but if it spurs something then it can’t do any harm,” Carole Barrott, 56, of Shipley.
“If people can get together and put something together then great, but if they can’t then unfortunately it is bad management on their side -- they shouldn’t be doing it. They should have the proper plans in place, the proper financial structures and then this wouldn’t happen. But hopefully they will get something put together so they can keep going for the community,” Paul Prudhoe, 37, of Fairweather Green, Bradford.
“It’s just another body blow for Bradford because it’s been something that people are passionate about, it’s something to be proud of and we haven’t got a decent football team, but it would be sad if Bradford City went down -- it’s sad to see these institutions just disappear,” Margaret Heaton, 75, of Frizinghall.
“I’ve been going on since I was kid. What’s happening is shame and I hope they rise above it. Me and my family would definitely be willing to help out because they are part of us,” Amreen Qurban, 21, of Odsal.
“I know quite a few people that are supporters and they would be shocked if it went under -- I’m sure their supporters would be willing to help them out,” Mollie Revitt, 78, of Bolton Junction, Bradford.
