Derek Adams… The man who some on here were obsessed with / insistent was the only man we should hire has won 2 of his last 22 games in all competitions.

Compare that to DCs win rate of 50% this season.

He’s clearly a good manager with a decent budget… just what is wrong with Bradford?!

I talked to a Bradford fan after our game, whilst walking to our cars. He told me that they draw too many games.

Fine margins, how many games have we won by a single goal?  Finger nails bitten down to the knuckle? Just means we are a superior team with a superior manager, results don`t lie over a season.

Had similar issues to us haven’t they? Lack of forwards? They draw a hell of a lot of games as well. 

Not sure why this point keeps being bought up to be honest. He’s a good manager and at the time if you had offered most either adams or Clarke I’m sure people would have differed on opinion. 

Blatantly a very good manager, his record proves this and getting promoted with morcambe is extremely impressive. 

Looks like we got the better manager, Clarke has been fantastic and I like everything about him; Dosent mean that adams would have been a bad appointment either though …..

A lot seem to struggle at Bradford, no idea why though?

I thought it was quite funny after Bradford and indeed Rochdale we often proclaim teams better than they are on here if they get a result against us.

I felt Bradford were quite average and we were too that day. I read comments they'd definitely be play offs as per Rochdale. 

They are a mid table team with a reputation which is  based on giving season tickets away in a Christmas cracker

Agree with this.

At the time, he was taking Morcambe up to league one on the leagues smallest budget.

Its not going to plan at Bradford (does it ever?) but that's football.

Clarkes done great for us and I'm glad we've got him, but at that time I certainly wouldnt have been disappointed if we'd got Adams instead.

Obviously now there's no contest.
