Griffo: Yeah, it's difficult in the lower leagues to fill a stadium, must be the lovely football that keeps the turnstiles turning ;)

mgriffin2012: I can see it now, 100,000 capacity stadium, floodlights, undersoil heating - it's the dream :))

ScottT: I'll have tight restrictions on non-Yorkshiremen entering the ground ;)

The end of this month was fair to say... Terrible, but that doesn't take away some decent performances we had previously. We earned ourselves another five points, but with only one win that was also quite disappointing. Youth player Alexander Kamanzi made his debut this month and scored in the same game, a great way to open your account as a new Bradford PA striker!

Despite failing to gain even half of the points on offer this month, we still remain on top of the league thanks to our great form earlier in the season, but with Peterborough hot on our tail now we must use next month to push ourselves away once again and have a chance at actually winning our first title under my reign at the club.

A new entry in the Player of the Month category for November, as Matty James bags the award this month. Despite Michael Lieblein's hat-trick against MK Dons in the 5-2 win, it was the central midfielder who was the engine behind the play and the average rating of 7.85 says all the words I need to explain how good James has been this month.

Terrific performance so far this season, keep it up!

Thanks man! :D
Peterborough are catching, but I remain certain that you'll fend them off!

As the free transfer deadline strikes down on English clubs, it is Bradford Park Avenue who have once again been active in the post-transfer window market.

Adam Chabukiani has welcomed three new UK-based youngsters into the club over the course of the window, despite signing up a total of twenty players in the summer.

Some young players in that list are currently out on loan, like Paul Turney and Callum Saunders who are both playing strikers for Port Vale in League Two. Port Vale seem to love ex-Bradford PA players too, with John Abubakar and Nathaniel Oseni plying their trade for them on loan as they were transferred to Leyton Orient and Leeds United respectively.

However, Avenue will welcome the signings of Alexander Kamanzi, Luke Lloyd and Kyle Williams with lots of hope.

Firstly, Kamanzi joined last month from Cambridge City and the 6'2" giant has already stamped down an impressive goalscoring record the first team at Horsfall Stadium, scoring four goals in as many games, including a brace Notts County on Tuesday.

Next up is the 'Flying Welshman' as his former clubs fans nicknamed him. Kyle Williams has played 5 games for the Under-21's here in West Yorkshire and has duly delivered with three goals and four assists really staking his claim for a first-team spot. The wingers' pace is what really catches the eye of spectators, not to mention his technical ability - Bradford have found a star here.

It's another Welshman now, but Luke Lloyd arrives from Llandudno in Wales and plays both sides of full-back. The 18-year-old has starred in ten development team matches for Bradford PA and even scored one through a penalty kick. He's assisted two goals and picked up an average rating of 7.19. The full-back can also operate in centre-back as well, making him an extremely versatile defender.
Another good month mate and the three youngsters showcase how good a future you have!
Still going strong, that title is yours to lose.
A squad is never complete, good to see you bringing in a few more players!
The stars of the future, hopefully the make a huge impact!
Thanks for all the great comments guys :D

It's the end of another long year for us as we enter 2019 tomorrow, in the dawn of the winter transfer window. The final month of the year saw us overrun two lower league teams in the F.A. Cup in Eastleigh and Grantham, but also saw us lose our top spot in the league for the first time since September. A string of poor league results saw us in this position and sealed 2nd spot in the league table heading into January 2019.

As stated above, this month saw Wycombe Wanderers rise above us into top spot after our 2-0 defeat to them. With Wycombe winning six out of their last six in the league, we can hope that what goes up, must come down and we will be top once again.

There is still a fear of dropping out of the automatic promotion places, with Peterborough three points behind us and trailing by 17 goals in goal difference but despite that, there are barely anymore contenders for an automatic promotion spot currently.

In the F.A. Cup Third Round we are set to play Championship outfit Ipswich Town at Portman Road, which I believe is a game that we can definitely win with the right mentality.

Jack Hallahan was our shining light throughout this tough, long month. He has taken over the spot predominantly held down by Kenny McEvoy on the left-wing and has definitely shown me why he should be starting there every single week. His pace and off the ball intelligence has really impressed me this month and he can expect a lot more starts if he continues this kind of form.

Still in second mate so keep your heads held high and you'll earn another promotion come May!
Tu es enfuego lol. Keep it up man
Still up there Jack, keep fighting lad!
