I would usually think that it's pretty juvenile stuff, but that was quite funny.

Wonít take long to get to Bowyer and the board. They could end up looking like proper chumps.

Reckon Bradford will still keep him if he fails to score between now and the 31st?

If they can afford to piss £200,000 up the wall, then yes.

Bradford are two points off the autos. Their fans are loud because they don't play pretty football (we've all done that).

Season would implode if Bowyer left now.

It's a marathon, they're not plummeting nor are they terminal.

You sack him now, in the final stages of a transfer window with Bowyer players not doing *that* badly then you're putting your season in way more danger.

Indeed, but they have now lost, let a 2 goal lead go and fail to score tonight (without Vaughan), all with Doyle playing. Bowyer probably shouldn't leave - it just feels a bit Flitcroft (doing ok but very shit to watch). Doyle hasn't scored when he has played for them this season (yet), so him being there isn't exactly helping their plight. In fact it would be better for them if Doyle were to leave (come to us).

Sounds crazy to say that about a man with 23 goals but he just does not fit there. If Bradford come to accept this then they may settle back down. Same shit football but at least with a player off the wage bill who doesn't fit. Regardless of quality.

The one thing the recall of Doyle may do is undermine Bradford and Bowyer a little, not because it was a bad decision as such, but more because the longer it doesn't pay dividends, the longer they are distracted from buying the right player or finding a way of making the team function more effectively going forward.

Northampton's result tonight was the bigger one, they look like a team finding the momentum.

You are off course right, and we only need to look at Flitcroft for a fairly close parallel (albeit poached not pushed).

Flitcroft with Mansfield could be a very close comparison - Bradford would have expectations of being top 3 at least this season, so the judgement is performance against that.  Once you start to under perform in the table, your level of performance is going to come under scrutiny.  He'd be safer right now if they were scoring and conceding but in the same position.  As it is, they are dull to watch and missing their target.  I think he's hung on well enough in the transfer window that they'll keep faith now.
