Quite a bad miss yesterday from the ginger one. Should have at least hit the target but skied it instead.

And he still hasn't been interviewed by the Bradford press.
And his twitter profile still says he's  Swindon player.
That's an understatement...

The ginger Pele wasn't 100% on target with us. He did miss a few (just a few).

But he also got more than one chance a game.

His reaction says it all. Fed up and frustrated.

Hopefully he’ll be the same at 10.00 pm on a Tuesday night.

Hopefully but the last thing we want is Bowyer to get the bullet and a new manager get him performing again.  Probably not enough time to do that before the window closes though.

I can't see Bowyer being booted in this window.

They are still in the playoffs. Even if you were not in the playoffs, but close, you'd be reluctant to change anything. It all rather Flitcroft-esque.

Bowyer is not going anywhere until the season goes tits up which could be as late as the final whistle of the play off final. Not least because any new person coming in would want some money to spend, I’m sorry but Bradford don’t have it in spades. Secondly who would they go after? A ‘name’ would want money, as they invariably do. Nah, best the bantams could hope for is he gets them over the line one way or another. Then decide the direction they wish to go manager wise in the close season.

Good ‘ol Daily Mail

DOYLE MAGIC IS MISSING
Daily Mail
20 Jan 2020
TOM FARMERY


EOIN DOYLE said in December he would be ‘disappointed’ if BRADFORD recalled him from his loan at Swindon. Doyle had been in scintillating form for Swindon, scoring 23 goals in 23 appearances. Now he is back at Bradford and, rather predictably, the goals have dried up. He is without one since his return although he did provide the assist for Hope Akpan’s opener before SCUNTHORPE came from two goals down to draw 2-2.

What’s worse for Bradford/Bowyer?

Keep Doyle who continues struggling to score or

Returns to us where he continues to score

Either scenario makes him look a right twat.

That's the problem with being a right twat, I guess

He is more likely to score and take points from Exeter, Cheltenham, FGR etc playing for us, than he is for Bradford. Therefore doing both clubs a favour. We've got a long week and a bit ahead of us.

Doyle has now gone 559 minutes of first team games without scoring for Bradford, his last goal for them being in a 3-2 win at Scunthorpe in April. Thats 6 and a half games now.

That does seem to suggest their style does not suit him and his style does not suit them.

If he is on the suggested £5k per week then thats around £100k in wages they will be pretty much throwing away and tying up in their budget for the rest of the season, a budget already squeezed tightly.

Bowyer is in a no win situation now, a real quandry, if he lets us sign him for a low fee or even take him back on loan then he gets (what would seem) an unhappy player off his books and also frees up that £100k back into his budget allowing him some freedom to bring a new face or 2 in the squad.

We get a player who wants to be at Swindon and whos style suits us and visa versa.

We continue to win games against the teams vying for play off places that Bradford are also vying for giving them an advantage as well as us.

Doyle scoring so many goals for us was probably the worst thing that could have happened to Bowyer in this situation and has put him under a lot of pressure from the fans to either get Doyle performing,  by changing his whole team style or to sell him to the best team in the league and a rival team (in their eyes).

From what I read their fans don't like Bowyer much anyway, he has the personality of a used tea bag, I still think we are giving Bradford some time to get a deal brokered for Doyle before the deadline, although it will be pushing it close time wise.

I think if its still looking unlikely a few days before deadline day then we will probably use most of that wage budget going after Bennett at Rovers (frozen out of the matchday squad for a few weeks now and told he is not wanted) again and signing a young loanee from a Championship side as well.

He’s on his own for the next 2 games with Vaughan suspended and Bowyer saying he won’t risk Donaldson yet.

Can’t imagine hoof ball will get him scoring. Their main asset pre Doyle was a tight defence. Since they’ve shoehorned him into the side they have shipped a few and he isn’t scoring.

It’ll be next week, if at all, if he returns.
