    Default Bradford

    Change of ownership again at Bradford - could Koukash be the interested party?

    Not unless it's his Mrs, who is a Scouser, and a nice lady. The doctor is still planning a team in the Sefton area of Liverpool (good luck with that!) Personally I think it would be a good move for him to take Bradford over, certainly better than the last few owners they've had and there is obviously a crowd base waiting for the glory days to return, perhaps they would be prepared to pay a decent price for tickets now.

    For it to work it has to be back at the ranch "ODSAL" i cant see Dewsbury attracting more than 1500 Northern/Bulls fans to be up for it every other week. Its amazing that Dewsbury offered them a home. At the height of Bullmania they undercut season ticket prices of Desbury and Keighley in the hope of shutting them down, however it was this that came back to haunt them.

    Probably purely financial on Dewsbury's part.

    Odsal is a dump and a financial black hole.
    I think they need an alternative venue but preferably in the city of Bradford.

    I think that's the stumbling block. It would be great to have a strong Bradford again, but a ground within the city is the issue.

    There's only 2 options as they can't afford their won ground and the council don't seem bothered. Bradford PA's ground which is tidy but probably too small, although there's potential to expand or Valley Parade which is too big at the moment.

    I agree Valley parade is too big, especially where Bradford are now. But it is not much difference in size to Odsal, Wigan Hudds and the other football grounds. Though i think those grounds are too big, apart from probably when we go to Wigan and the Hull derby.

    That's true, I suppose they could just open one stand. This holds 3500 which at least would see them playing in front of a full house most weeks and wouldn't cost as much as VP.

    Absolutely agree the biggest dump of any sports venue , even Marwan pulled out of looking to go on there , even with the prospect of being able to build a casino , worst ground I've ever been to , sat with "nobby" in the stands once and he couldn't even hold onto his coffee that was just bought him he was shivering that much , Oh what's the price of summer rugby.
    roy litherland it's happened i told you it would

    A Bradford fan of my acquaintance assures me that a new ground will be built on the other side of the road on the site of the Richard Dunn Sports Centre
