01/02: Preview: Bradford City
BSaD opinion
by Matt Rowson

How did they do?
Plummeted out of site in the Premiership, disappointingly just failing to out-rubbish our meagre points total of the previous season.

How will they do?
Not half as well as they appear to believe. Whilst there is clearly a gulf between the Prem and Division One, City seem to forget that they have decisively failed to bridge it. Expect City to struggle to re-adapt to their more spartan surroundings early on, rallying with a late charge which could find them within grasp of the playoffs.

Do we like them?
Not particularly. The Bantams have spent much of the last two years bleating about how Watford's promotion to the Premiership denied them their rightful place as the nation's darlings-for-a-year. Didn't help this by getting very lucky with injuries and scraping to safety two seasons ago at the expense of our friends from Wimbledon. Plus, Valley Parade is always bloody freezing.

If they were a tv or radio show, what would they be?
"Fantasy Football League". Ran out of ideas halfway through the first season, should never have gotten the chance at a second.
