Did anyone see the glorious Wembley of the North appear on the ground breaking documentary series Bad Boy Chiller Crew on ITV2?

It looked pretty good actually and give the BBCC lads credit theyre happy to give Bradford and Bulls plenty of publicity. They have a lot and I mean a lot of followers on social media.

My mate's kids are really into BBCC they're more popular than I appreciated with the kids of today.

I was at the ground on Wednesday evening. Some training was going on so the floodlights were on. Have to say they were massively improved and flooded the ground with light. The last time I saw them on a couple of years ago you would have generated more light by striking a swan vesta, so that was great to see.
The pitch is still too small but at least meets minimum requirements now.
The biggest downside is the red shale surrounding the pitch. It’s just a mess. It sprays all over the seats and terracing. However, Startrax need it for their races and without their support we’d still be in Dewsbury so I guess we’ll just have to put with it.
Away fans will complain about it, and they have every right to, but at least they will only experience it once a year (twice if they attend a friendly), we’ve got it every other week.

Yes I agree with this about the red shale, the last home league our seats were covered in the red dust and I mentioned this when I renewed our season tickets so we have moved a row back and gone into the next block nearer to the middle. If it's still the same the only thing to do is take a cloth like Granville in Open all Hours.

The seating in the main stand was a mess on my last visit with the lad, it didn’t make me want to rush back I’ll be honest. Would rather visit Dewsbury than Odsal from a family perspective.

If it was the game that I went to, I was in the Southbank and Nigel Wood was doing his nut in as Startrac are supposed to clean up the seats in the stand and corporate balcony, I also overheard another conversation (not Nige) that Startrac hadn't factored in that the cleaning would be so expensive or quite as extensive.

How true this is I don't know, but at the prices they are charging i'd be shocked if they are running at a loss
Don't think i'm biased...
...i'm just very narrow minded!!!!!!!

Cynically I'm just as convinced that they don't. For as long as I've watched Bradford we've been in fruitless talks with local politicians. They haven't suddenly had an epiphany that will help turn Odsal into a 21st century stadium. If they weren't convinced when we were in our pomp, they won't be now surely.

It would of course be delicious to see the frothing of mouths on the T&A from people with "Bantam" in their username if we did.

Since the 00s the Council has had an agenda of wanting us at VP. The sticking point has been that BCFC don't want us, or at least not unless we pay a huge rent and fit around their fixtures.

There's never been any serious intention to do Odsal up since bloody Stephen Byers called in the development with Tesco on 2001/2. Had that gone through I bet we'd be in a totally different situation.

Any sort of development of Odsal now is fantasy. You'd be better starting with a fresh site, and that won't happen without significant private contribution.

Although it's interesting to see a major construction company are now sponsoring the main stand....#grabstinfoilhat

So maybe we'll get a new stand then? Hopefully on the other side, it would make a big difference if the whole ground were covered, seats or no seats. Not holding my breath. of course.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
