Bradford City were in a fix before today’s game against Blackpool at Valley Parade. They are in even more than a fix now.

They entered the game bottom of the League One pile and six points, plus a heap of goals, shy of safety. Today’s 4-1 loss at home hasn’t done them any favours in wanting to drag themselves to safety.

Time is running out for the Bantams, there’s just seven games left after today. Even with 21 points left to play for, the outlook seems gloomy for the West Yorkshire side.

Their only saving grace is that sides like Southend (20th – 42 points) and Shrewsbury (19th – 43 points) are in an equally bad run of form as they are.

The 4-1 loss continues City’s bad run that has seen them lose four of their last five games – conceding 12 goals in total. Under new boss Mark Bowyer, there was hope from some that the Bantams might be able to pull clear.

That hope seems to be both lost and forlorn at the moment for City. The performances are simply not there as they lurch from loss to loss and stumble like a punch-drunk boxer.

It’s bound to be disheartening for Bradford City fans, that’s a given. There was much heart over the summer that the club might be able to put up a fight and string together some credible performances.

However, today’s loss is bound to leave these fans somewhat dejected and contemplating whether their side can really avoid the drop. Here’s how some Bantams fans have responded to the crushing loss.

The vitriol is there and plain to see. The above comments are plain enough that no inference is needed. Braford City fans aren’t happy, who can blame them. Whilst it is mathematically more than possible that City could stay up, a performance like this must shake even the most stalwart Bantam to the core and almost convince them that their side is all but buried.
