    We had a very under par team then poor tactics and was well out of our depth, our current squad are far better now and we play better together with stuart being able to mix various formations and the squad still being able to gel well together

    Not to sure we had an under par team :
    Duke, Darby, McHugh, McArdle, Atkinson, Jones, Doyle, Hanson and Wells all played in the quarter final against Arsenal, both legs of the semi final against Aston Villa and the Wembley final (which we won't dwell on).

    Good played in the quarter final against Arsenal, the away leg of the final semi final at Aston Villa and the Wembley final
    Thompson played at home to Aston Villa and the Wembley final
    Hines played at home to Arsenal and away to Aston Villa

    I agree with the poor tactics on the day (hindsight is a wonderful thing) which IMO made us second best to Swansea, but looking back Laudrup had put a very good attacking side together that season with the lad Michu making life very difficult on the day with his movement on and off the ball, great centre forward play.

    I was never keen on atkinson or hinez tbh, stuart has shown the way forward is attack which we never did with parky was mostly set up to defend and try scrape wins like he's done with Bolton he's been successful but the football was sh#te to watch and not very entertaining

    We hardly scraped a win against Northampton at Wembley who we put to the sword with one of the best attacking displays I saw that season and that was under Phil Parkinson, yes the football we've played under Stuart has been better on the eye no doubt, but Parky didn't do too badly with our club under his time at Valley Parade.

    No, it's a place in Gwynedd, Wales. It's just round the corner from Harlech.

    Missed this one a bit. Should we stand together (pigeons) or work alone as (eagles). Either way, we are there and I will not have my day upset by any yobs from the other side. I am hoping for a great family day out and also for a good win for the mighty Bantams. If, as spectators we get attacked I would expect the Bradford lads to stand ground, as I will. I would not expect Bradford spectators to cause problems. This is not the 1970'S and 1980'S when Bradford had a decent firm.

    I am still confused and asked my wife to stop putting bird food out a it might attract pigeons and upset bird lovers. Not sure where I have gone wrong here. Just need the mighty Bantams to romp home tomorrow. CITYS GOING UP AND THE LEEDS ARE STAYING DOWN etc.

    Also, this is the last season we will be playing Millwall, which has to be one to rejoice.

    Heads up lads, see you all at Wembley.
