In recent weeks, the complaints surrounding this Bradford City side have got to a ridiculous point (the performance at Rotherham was poor, I admit that), and I think it needs to be remembered just where we were 18 months ago.
We very nearly went out of the league and may have had no football club. We all know what has happened since then; it does not need to be gone over again. Now the team is sat eighth in the league above, I would say this is a dream come true after the last few years.
The problem this team now faces is that, because they made such a good start, people expect these standards to be kept up. This was never ever going to happen, and in all fairness there is no shame in a dip in form. Some people need a reality check; this is not a time to rip this team apart, let’s back it. Let’s keep the spirit that saw us through the past 18 months.
I just hope the team spirit remains untroubled and we supporters keep patient, backing the team till the death. This season is about staying up, not going up – we are not ready to go up at all, we would get torn apart in the Championship. A top 10 finish would be an awesome return for this year.
