Good luck mate! Can you beat Arsneal and Villa again
As A wheeler dealer I really didn't want to spend much money. As the club is not in the best financial situation. I got a lot of loan signings and free transfers.

Next Will Be The August Report!
So the First Month Begins...
Don't think anyone actually cares about pre-season. It was bad anyway!
The Capital One Cup 1st Round Draw gave us a tough tie against Middlesborough. It was at home but was our first game of the season so the players where obviously going to be a bit rusty.
MATCH REPORT-BRADFORD 0 MIDDLESBOROUGH 2
It has to be said that bradford gave middlesborough the win in this match. Two own goals from Gunnar Nielsen And Andrew Davies gifted the win to middlesborough. Notable poor performances from Zavon Hines and 'keeper Nielsen. Bradford fans voiced the anger on how the match was lost. It was a tough start for the new gaffer...
We went into the first league 2 match against Aldershot...
MATCH REPORT-BRADFORD 2 ALDERSHOT 0
A good solid win for Bradford but a boring game in truth. The game really didn't get going until the 61st minute when Joāo Carlos put the bantams ahead with a cracking long range effort. Then in the 84th minute Garry Thompson hit the ball off defender troy brown to get the winner. The win will come as a relief to the new manager. After a poor performance against the 'boro.
Then we had two more league games.
Rotherham 3-1 Bradford
Evans '62 Schofield '74 Pringle '85
Bradford 2-0 Barnet
Thompson'25 Doyle Pen'42
Stephens Sent Off '41
So Next will be the September Update.
