Is this 100%?

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

No - in fact just yesterday I heard from a usually reliable source it's Potter but the club is still ironing out the contract.

Well I've heard he's turned the contract down citing his intention to return home back to Australia.

Perhaps - if he has decided to go back home, he's left it pretty late in the day from the Bulls POV to change his mind.

Regardless, either way it is not a done deal yet I would assume.

I'll change the thread title to avoid confusion, but as reported in todays Guardian the new coach will be confirmed this week.

Just for information Connor Murphy (The Bulls reporter for the local paper) said on twitter that he isn't aware Potter has dropped out of the race for the job and an announcement is more likely to be next week as negociations are taking longer than expected - which would support the report in today's League Express.

Oh dear - Thats Bradford not making the paly-off's for (insert number of years of new coaches contract) years biggrin.gif

McDermott has a shocking record (even taking into account the limited resources he has a Quins) and Potter has reduced Saints to a "1 out" style that is boring as hell to watch. Saints have lost all their flair by having to stick to his robotic style gameplan.
Actually come to think of it this style is perfect for the Bulls, they just need to go back to having a dozen 17st players in the team to make it work

from what i heard i would be shocked if Brian McDermott is not coaching the Bulls next season. it was all rubber sealed i was told, not unless there was a breakdown on the terms of his contract.
he wanted to coach the Bulls they wanted him to coach them, so if he doesn't get the job something has happened behind the scene's at the last minute. Friday night might be interesting when Quins RL play the Bulls biggrin.gif

I would be very surprised if it wasn't Macca. The re-signing of Sykes(A Macca fave) all but confirmed the new coach IMHO.

Potter is leaving the UK to move back to Australia unless were going to let him coach via video link.

Must win for us mate, I'm going in the hope that I see our first win since beating Wakefield 29-10 at Belle Vue way back in early May.

I'll look out for you - I'll be there!!!
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Will you be in your purple jacket?!

You could get Mick and the solitary Quins fan to walk behind you... biggrin.gif

You're right Mick we need our enthusiasm whetted. Whilst me, thee and some others on here will watch through hell and highwater, it's oour floating, fickle fans we need back through the turnstile to get money back in the coffers to move forward.

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

We must hope it's Potter then for the armchair and sofa fans to once again grace Odsal with their presence.
