Okay so if he goes, how much would it cost to get rid of him? Can the club afford it? and who would replace him?
On paper the Bradford team is good enough to win this league. Todd as manager is responsible to get that team working. We have once again been unlucky with injuries, not Todd's fault. As long as we're not floating around the relegation area he still gets my vote, as I just can't see a viable alternative at the moment. He knows the situation at the club, there is still a lot of rotten woodwork which needs replacing behind the scenes. If Todd left the whole structure could come tumbling down.
we will never get anywhere if we continually go on naval gazing. Yes our financial situation is still precarious, and therefore anybody coming into the job will have to take that into account.
However, staying with a manager who is stuggling on all kinds of levels, will dishearten the players and fans alike. I would normally give him until Christmas, but I think we could still do well given the right motivation of the team, and to play in a more expansive way that we do presently, Todd seems to favour caution. Fortune favours the brave.
Once Ricketts gets back in goal, Bridge-Wilkinson returns from injury and Deano returns we will be fine and should finish in the top 6.
For me the jury is still out on Howarth, he doesn't fill me with confidence whatsoever. Watching our midfield last night reminds us how much we need a fully fit Bridge-Wilkinson but one thing I do agree with is the substitutions are baffling at times. Putting Lewis on for Muirhead last night was as strange as taking off Owen for Richardson and leaving Crouch on the pitch
He was very entertaining and played like a rugby prop forward when coming for crosses, I do agree he looked like an accident waiting to happen but he installed alot more confidence that Howarth ever has.
The fact we lost last night was nothing to do with Todd, we were fairly beaten.
I also agreed with the Muirhead substitiution, he was back to his old self yesterday, what exactly did he do apart from a few sideways runs. He wasn't very good at IMO I've said it time and time again but ill say it again, if the person he's up again is sismilar pacewise to him he's fucked. He isn't amazingly fast anyway, Ricketts is supposd to be faster.
The Bulls were garbage at the start of the season and there were cries for Nobles head, defeats against Wakefield and Widness followed, the unrest grew but the chairman stuck with his man, on Saturday the Bulls will walk out at Old Trafford for the Super League grand final, all I can say is time will tell.
Its not just a matter of stay or go, finance is the most important part, relegation, promotion, wages, compensation, go bust, Julian is juggling more balls than CT has on the training field, it must be a very worrying time for him
