Someone has to start it  

Great performance by us today, we should have come away with three points.

I don't know if it was us being good or Bradford being poor but I was expecting better from them.

Early days but we look to have improved a fair bit from last season....  UTM

Thoroughly enjoyed that, a good all round performance in which every player put a shift in.
Long may it continue.
And the atmosphere was superb.

Agree we should of won today but the footballing gods had already decided otherwise, but I would like to say had we played that game last season we wouldn't of even got a draw. Decent attacking football played, direct and purposeful without being constant hoofball again.

We defended well and Macca didn't have too much to do but when called on Macca was Macca, but at times we went back to that old habbit of defending too deep and too flat.

I thought both subs did well when they came on and Ogbu's strength and skill will be a real handful for teams at this level.

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!

Very impressed with Hanson, he won everything up front. We look solid at the back and I hope Ohman will recover for the next game. I thought the midfield group covered a lot of ground today as well.
Not at all impressed with Bradford and their fans were pretty quiet too.

Very enthused after that. The only negative being the injuries, we definitely need a couple more signings.

Great work rate by all, especially Matt Green who I thought was outstanding.

Cracking game considering the wind. Defence solid. Hanson and Green outstanding. Great save from Macca. We just need a clever midfielder with a bit of guile and we've got ourselves a very decent team.

For me from an iFollow perspective average first half with two sides who cancelled each other out though we looked the more likely throughout the half and we did look dangerous at set pieces.

Second half we were a different team from the off. Ogbu and Green using the width much better with Clifton in particular doing well in support from midfield. Then they score from a decent cross to be fair and a good header. But a significant improvement on last season was how we fought back in the game and for 15 mins after they scored we played really well, obviously culminating in the equaliser.

I doubt we will see a side as committed as our own this season. Represented by Ohman having to go off injured after yet again launching his being, with no thought to his own safety, in to the path of a Bradford player. Hope he is ok and it is just a precaution.

Overall I am actually annoyed we did not win, which considering the opposition and where we finished last season is probably a good sign. Roll on Donny next.

Enough about that to suggest we wont be looking over our shoulder as much this season, but wouldn't go to overboard. The midfield is'nt creative enough for me, and the fitness levels dropped alarmingly  in the last 15.

Hanson looks a handful, and was impressed with Ogbu

Town were the better side for 80% of the game, Bradford looks ponderous and one or two of them were carrying extra timber, did not think our second goal was offside.
Don't think there's much danger of them being promoted this season
