About following your team.........
Did you go and see the ups of Arsenals winning 1989 season winning game at anfield? if so what was it like.

Or at the other end of the table, did you go home and away to watch countless dismal losses...........

What about great escapes? Were you there when your team narrowly avoided relegation, you know like last minute goals by on-loan goalkeepers that stopped you joining the conference.

How about a cup run?

Tell us all. Will write mine in a mo...........(well I do work sometimes in the day you know )

I'll do a proper one soon manc, but following bradford for oer 20 years i've seen approx 7 or 8 promotions and 5 or 6 relegations. I've laid on the kop in the old days with a crowd of 3 or 4 thou and watched em shit kick their way to relegation, and sat in Directors boxes recently enjoying a meal before hand (still feels a bit weird that)

Every promotion was fantastic, from a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth to get out of the old 4th div I think, to Wembley in the Playoffs, and promotion to the Premiership with a win at Wolves not long after. Staying up by beating Liverpool 1 nil on the last day was a bit tasty too.

Downers - obviously the fire, everyone knew someone involved to some extent - it was shit! just horrible. Kinda makes relegations (which we're good at) seem like a doddle. I didn't lose anyone I knew in it, but a good mate got a few burns pulling some old fella out of the stand onto the pitch.

Anyway, what can i say, to follow Bradford is to follow a yo-yo team that surprise you sometimes with decent football, but mostly give you the chance for a right good moan!!

C'mon City!
