The 45 year-old has signed a new contract with the recently promoted Bradford City.

He is wide known in the U.K for being the first ever manager to take a fourth tier club to Wembley, on a League Cup Final against Swansea, beating Wigan Athletic, Arsenal, and Aston Villa along the way. Although they ended up losing 5 - 0 against The Swans, they did secure themselves promotion to the League One after winning the Playoffs.

So far Phil has secured Jason Kennedy from Rochdale, Mark Yeates from Watford, Raffaele de Vita from Swindon, and Matt Taylor from Charlton on free transfers, also securing Connor Ripley from Middlesbrough on a loan deal.

The ex-Aston Villa central defender has been signed on a free transfer from his former club, Aston Villa.

After a loan spell at Dutch club Volendam, he signed for Dutch clubs HBS Craeyenhout and FC Emnen, before joining on trial with League Two club Wycombe Wanderers.

The fans are delighted to see Phil Parkinson such shrewd business, they see him as a vital player for The Bantams for years to come.

Joe McCann, and Lacine Cherif signs for Bradford

Let's take a look closely at each player using the renowned football managing game, Football Manager 2012, to look at their stats, strengths, and weaknesses.

______________________________________________________________________________________



Joe McCann signs from Leeds United in a £4.5K deal and signed a five-year £650 deal. The central midfielder, who can also play in the left side, has decent passing and crossing, also possesing a great running pace. Although his marking isn't the best, along with some other traits, at still only 18, he will keep improving and hopefully be a part of the Bantams for a long time.
______________________________________________________________________________________



Lacine Cherif is a man from Ivory Coast able to play in central midfield, attacking midfield, and striker positions naturally. His flexibility and ability with dribbling and good speed are downsided by his terrible marking, tackling, and positioning. He is still 20 year of age and will improve in the future.
______________________________________________________________________________________


Jamil Adam signs on a free transfer, signing a £1.100 five-year contract. The Irish striker has great speed, although his marking is not the best. Jamil will certainly add depth to the attacking department and will look to help Bradford to avoid relegation.

Those 3 will be quality. They are gonna be the old guys that lift the premier league. A bit like Rickie Lambert, but better.
Ok so my electricity died and lost my save file, could not be loaded.

I'll try to do it all again the exact same way but no promises :P probably a bit things different here and there




The signing of the 22 year old central midfielder has really stirred up the fans. They think they have secured a bright young talented player for the future.

"I'm happy to have signed here, claimed Stephen.

"The lads have made me feel at home instantly here, and Phil is a fantastic coach. I am relishing the opportunity to work with him."

Departures are also imminent as centar defender Luke Oliver joins Blue Square Premier club Stockport for £6K. Also Blue Square North club FC Halifax have secured attacking midfielder Leon Osbourne on a loan deal, with the choice of making it permanent.

Oh, haha :P Ah well.
I had to restart again due to power outage. The only thing that changed is the parent club though. Sunderland is now the parent club.
Your 2nd restart?




The Trindan & Tobagonian left back has signed a one-year contract for The Bantams. This is Bradford's 11th signing this transfer window by Phil Parkinson as he builds his team towards League One survival.

Although only signing a one year contract, Jlloyd will certainly provide depth to the full back side of the team, with him being the only natural left back. Jlloyd has been given the no.15 shirt.

Technically not a restart :P my save got me a bit far but the transfers didn't change, only the parent club did. I had to choose between Hull Cardiff Sunderland and Q.P.R. I chose Sunderland :D
I'm tired...my fm 12 crashed and my bradford save got corrupted...i don't wanna do this story anymore, it already took 3 restarts..sorry
