The Bantams are preparing for another season in League Two under the leadership of Stuart McCall. They are sharing a training facilities at St Andrews with Barcelona and like their neighbours, they won on Wednesday. Bradford beat Dundee 1-0 while Hibs were crushed 6-0 by Barca!

Bradford came to the fore a year ago when they made a welcome move to reduce the price of their season tickets. It was possible to watch their games for an upfront payment of £138 (equivalent to £6 a match). Over 12,000 took up the offer and their average attendance over the season was more than three times that of anyone else. Congratulations to them for that initiative - what a contrast to our pattern of ever increasing prices for reducing benefits.

Mark McGhee fielded 18 players in the midweek game against Wolves and we can expect more of the same on Saturday. Speculation continues about the possibility of us securing the services of O'Brien and Kennedy and there might by further appearances from the trialists.

This will be the last chance to see Motherwell at Fir Park on a Saturday until Aberdeen visit on league business on August 16. A couple of thousand will turn up to pay the £10 admission and they will probably leave wondering if the afternoon could have been put to better use.
