Last September, I – Jason McKeown – and former writing partner Michael Wood had the pleasure of getting to meet and spend the day shadowing then-Bradford City Chief Scout and Head of Football Development, Archie Christie. From which we wrote an acclaimed series of articles you can read here, here and here.
Archie left the club last November, though we have remained friends with him (indeed on Saturday night I received a proud email from him after his Development Squad product Nahki Wells scored that hat trick). Now working for a Premier League club (Archie asked us not to make public which one for now), Christie has offered to answer questions from supporters on his time at Bradford City, via Width of a Post.
Christie told Width of a Post: “At Bradford I built up a strong affection for City supporters, through meeting and conversing with many and witnessing how well they backed the team during matches. I’ve not spoken in public about my time at Bradford yet because I didn’t want to cause any disruption to the team, so I thought doing so at the end of the season would be the ideal opportunity.”
So, if you have a question for Archie – please email it to Widthofapost@gmail.com so we can put it to him. At the end of the season, we will email all of the submitted questions to Archie, and he will answer by email. Width of a Post will then put his answers live, unedited. We firmly believe that this should be an interview between supporters and Archie, and so we are simply acting as the medium for it only.
We are inviting questions now, to give you time to consider and submit them before the end of the season.
