If they were to be demoted it would have already happened, they are just too valuable to go down!
Just 2 questions, you think Keighley can get back to 5000 but you don't think Bradford can get back to 15000? In your opinion why is that?
(I think Bradford will recover to around 10-12k when they are back in the top 8 Keighley will be around 1k for my lifetime)
Secondly are you seriously saying they are spending 5 mill on 1 stand and you think that's value for money? ?
It was an option to demote them both times that the went into financial difficulties. If/when p and r returns in 2015 unless they sort out their finances and greatly increase the strength of their team they will be in the mix for a relegation spot. Too big to fail eh. RBS, GM, AIG, Chrysler, Northern Rock used to be in that group. What happened to them?
1. I didn't say 5,000, I said 2 to 3,000, to be exact I said they could at least double the current 1,000 ad maybe more.
2. 15,000 was the absolute zenith of Bradford's attendances when they were truly a dominant team winning titles and cups for fun. Since they stopped dominating many of the fans have jumped ship and there is nothing to suggest that Bradford are going to regain anything like their former prominence anytime soon. in fact, didn't they just make several backroom staff redundant ?
The whole ground development scheme is budgeted for 5 million. How much of that is for the redesign and build of the stand using the existing steelwork I couldn't say but what of it. Keighley are planning to do it and good luck to them, the little engine that might.
