The club is getting nearer and nearer to having to ask the question; Should we move away from Bradford?

Facing facts the club need to sort something out maybe not now, or in three years but before too long Odsal as it is now will stop the club from getting a super league licence.

Where have you read that the plans have been shelved ? The council of Bradford have never said "no".

Maybe they should have but they certainly haven't as far as I've seen.

When the Council feels it can convince the the council tax payers and general public of Bradford that they should give £x million* towards improving the facilties of a private company and maybe throw away some recreational land** in the process then it would be all systems go.

* - £x million in addition to the needed replacement of Richard Dunns.
** - although it seems Horsfall is not included in the latest funding plans.

Morrissons did their best to scupper our plans too.

Suburb of Liverpool ?

How does someone from the suburb of Halifax support Bradford ?

The backward thinking of the Bradford Council actually cost the re-development at NO cost to the Council Tax Payers (of which I am one). The whole site was proposed to be re-developed by a leading supermarket chain, putting in more retail outlets, but the Bradford Council scuppered this under their "town centre shopping policy" (that worked well over the last few years eh????)

The only real way forward is to sell the site and ground share with Bradford City. This was quite successful previously, when the Bulls moved out for the re-development to take place.

I am saying

Possibly the same way I do. With the miracle of modern technology and transport, I can get to Bradford in under 2 hours and manage to watch games on TV. (Not to mention the wonderful BCB coverage for games I can't get to)

At least get your facts right dude.

The Council passed the planning permission.

It was National Government ( Labour ) who scuppered the plans under their out of town non food planning policy.

I'm presuming you mean the supposed development back in 01/02 time?

That was scuppered by government policy, not Bradford council, due to government policy an enquiry had to take place (whether Morrisons objected or not BTW), and Tesco refused to fund or wait for it to be held.

Bradford Council are far from perfect, they are far from average, but they aren't the ones to blame all the time.

I actually think the behind the scenes facilities are reasonably decent now at Odsal. The toilets , catering, bars etc are perfectly acceptable. These are the main gripes at Knowsley Road.

The one great thing Odsal lacks is a roof it can be pretty wet at times ! I was soaked to the skin at the Saints game last season.

I remember the old grassy banks at Odsal and it has certainly come a long way since then.


I would take Odsal over the dreadful Valley Parade ( and its ' staff
)any day of the week.
