Having to get my Bulls fix via radio and social media these days - how was Odsal looking, seems there has been work done on cleaning the terraces and painting barriers etc. and all the floodlight lamps have been replaced, but what's been done elsewhere on area like toilets and bars etc.

Would appreciate an update from those who attended today

Yeah quite a bit done. Barriers all newly painted, crumbling terracing fixed, touchdown bar completely fixed up. New gates and turnstile doors.

Toilets on the pop side could do with fixing up but I'm sure that's on the list.

Pitch was very narrow and made it a bit difficult to spread the ball wide bit hopefully that won't be for long.

Pitch white line looked like they’ve not been painted in a while

They were painted for this weekend, no markings before Thursday.
I see Aaron Bower is criticising the club again with the pitch length, no mention of the players or performance today.

By his own admission he hates Bradford so I wouldn’t expect any

Weird how he hates the club considering he grew up supporting them.
He can't resist getting a dig in.

If the pitch is not within the requirements demanded by the rules of the sport, surely we would not be allowed to play on the pitch?

That being said, I hope Lilley and Brough get plenty of time to practice their kicks on that pitch

Why not discuss and debate what was a great game between 2 playoff chasing teams?! Nah, you'd rather talk about the grass wouldn't you.

Exactly my point, he wasn't interested in that just the pitch issue, should be talking up the positives from today.

Yep. The pitch issue probably needed a couple of paragraphs in a build up to what was a crucial game. As you say, the fact he's not even commented on the on-field action just fuels the accusations having an axe to grind.

Our pitch size hasn't just had more media attention than our game itself, but it's had more media coverage than Catalans trouncing Wigan, Wakefields superb win over an in-form Huddersfield team. Yes a championship teams pitch size has had more media coverage than Super Leagues actual on field action!! Then the same media will be asking "why doesn't the sport have a bigger profile?"

There's one or two decent journos, but the rest just seem to be after twitter likes sadly.

Anyway back on topic, I think Bullseye covered it all. The stadiums has certainly had a tidy up. Barriers shot blasted and repainted, terracing jet washed. The touchdown bar has had the outside renovated and looks smart. A lot of hard work has gone into it
