Don't be like that. Something good occasionally has to happen in this place. Not often that happens today. Pleased for all the City fans I know who have had some bad times. Good stuff IMO.

Could be a Bradford-Leeds final!

Yup. Bradford in the headlines for something positive. Makes a pleasant change. :)

I take your point, but, let's face it, not many Rangers fans are cheered by Celtic's progress in the European Cup.

However, in line with your tis-the-season-of-goodwill-to-all-men philosophy I am willing to give my grudging support to the old enemy ... Come on Swansea.

Are you comparing Bulls and City to Rangers and Celtic, or are you talking of your support for a different football team (Park Ave? Would be the only apt comparisson).

Not *quite* the same rivalry between City and Bulls though... :)

There are some on either side who hate the other and I've had a few rants myself, but most people realise they are just about all we have going for us at present and I hope they go all the way and win the cup.

Besides that, I'll be inheriting my brothers 25 year season ticket soon, so will be going sometimes!

1. Several of my friends are former Park Avenue supporters who consider that City mobilised support for the Avenue not to be re-elected to the Football league in 1970. They switched allegiance to Leeds, Huddersfield or Man U. Three or four still go to watch the Avenue.
2. I consider we got ripped off by City when we had to use their ground for Superleague in 2001 and 2002. City put prices up 50% and they didn't operate the scoreboard for the first game. They didn't let us have the full pre-match entertainment package and didn't sell tickets for our games.
3. Mark Lawn, the current co-owner of City has previously angled to get the council to make the Bulls leave Odsal so that we would contribute to their stadium rental.

I cannot do with Bradford City.

Avenue aside, not exactly Old Firm stuff is it? They didn't put a scoreboard up for a game nearly 12 years ago - learn to let go! B)

Yeah, there is some animosity, but it's far from the default position. In my experience each other most City/Bulls fans wish the others well even if they don't actively follow them.

Yes, but what I inferred from the occurrence was that, even after hiking the gate price by 50%, they wanted more money again to operate the scoreboard.

That would pretty much be the entire (Park Avenue) support when the club met its end then.

Not that City were ever much better.

"Phony war" neatly describes the level of rivalry the two could muster in a city that couldn't really have cared less.

I'm from the valleys. When it comes to bearing grudges, the Sicilians have nothing to compare.

And if I ever get the chance to do the dirty on Chris Joynt, yes you just bet I'll take it.

Not much to pick between the two teams in terms of crowds, with City generally slightly larger. Just a few years before BPA went under they had bigger crowds than Bradford City.

In the early 20s City could pull in 23,000 and BPA 15,000. In the late 40s BPA were getting 18,000 to City's 10,000.

That's me.  I'm done.
