Bradford City director of communications Ryan Sparks speaks ahead of Stevenage fixture.

He makes a damning assessment of the way Mr Day and GTFC have gone about announcing that next Saturday's game was not going to be played.

If true that it was announced to Radio Humberside before anyone spoke to Bradford City then that is a terrible lack of manners.  

Mr Day should clarify the situation.


It's simple.isnt it, it was called off fri pm and he gave his opinion in a radio interview within an hour or.two, saying via the efl guidance he expected a couple of other games to be called off.

You would think there are bigger current issues  for all efl chair and directors......

So he didn't have time for a quick call to Bradford before going on air.

Are you for real or never been involved in a commercial business?

It never said anything about the Bradford game being off in the official GTFC statement. PD said in the interview that the other games might get called off.

Quoted from aldi_01
If we’d managed to assemble a decent squad and had started well and won every game would people be so quick to want to curtail the season?

We’ve sat around waiting for a bailout which isn’t a definite, we started back late so we’re playing catch up, spent 16 weeks pleading poverty and now we’re miles off the pace when we actually play.

The club must take some responsibility as much as the EFL. It’s clearly just being made up as we go along and nobody seems to have a flipping clue what to do; art imitating life once again (our football is less artistic than previous though).


In defence of the club, they have taken a very responsible approach here.  There was a threat in-house, i.e the virus and we've done what we can to mitigate the spread of that risk.

The EFL are an absolute shower, I don't think it's an easy task but their lack of clarity across the board (and governance) is appalling.  The situation here and with the league cup farce just highlights that they don't know what they're doing.  Town were in a completely unenviable position here but I think they did the right thing in calling the game off.  

What I think is becoming a concern is that Day seems a bit too fond of giving interviews out to Radio Humberside.  I'm all for transparency and I welcome this open approach that he's quite keen to have.  But it feels like the local radio station are getting the scoop on everything, even before our own in-house media outlets are reporting anything.  It feels messy and is already leading to confusion.
