Jim O'Brien: Bradford City sign former Barnsley and Coventry midfielder
We’d brought super Jim back
Why? He’s no better than what we have in my opinion
One of best players I’ve seen in a cov shirt this decade
What’s your top 5?
Yes we’re definitely missing that headless chicken player in the team
I loved watching O’Brien. Exciting player who made things happen. Created chances and scored goals.
JOB was good here but I don't feel like we need him badly
We have Jones Allasani bayliss andreu Thomas Shipley for winger and amc roles.
He's scored 3 goals since he left us and didn't score in 29 appearances last season. I think we saw the best of him and that was only in bursts. He always worked hard but had no positional sense and often caused us more problems than he solved.
Shame he thought he was the gaffer though , he was a bit moody and hung on too tight for my liking , he has not done much since his departure so screwed himself over
If Doyle was in same team he would lay him out no doubt
All that said a good player with a good heart
Nah, we have Thomas, with Allasani in reserve.
Indeed. Just got player of the month for Motherwell didn’t he?
I thought everyone needs to move on from ex players Adge pal? Practice what you preach and all that..
I’ll take it on board-fancy joining me? I’m in if you are?
It’s not me who said it. I just find it funny how when someone mentions Maddison or Wilson you say everyone needs to move on as they no longer play us but you constantly want to mention Jordan Clarke and Bigirimana who no longer play for us. Dare I say the former don’t fit into your agenda?
Yes we do ALL need to move on.You can say whatever you like boss regarding agendas etc, please, if you don’t mind, remind me what agenda that is again? Well, seems like business as usual.....
Your hypocrisy is astounding. You don’t want to move on as proven by your posts about Clarke and Bigirimana what you actually mean is you want people to move on from those performing well in the Premier League as this doesn’t fit your close the academy agenda
Most people see it, it’s not just me. Even on a thread nothing about Bigirimana you mention him, why do you follow his career after us if you hated him when he was here?
I had a big one
Oops sorry just looked at the title I wish
My nan could get Player of the month for Motherwell .......and she;s dead
Yeah that’s me-an astounding hypocrite.
Wouldn't get into our team.
Shhhhh-say it quietly-wouldn’t want to upset the natives.
Another of the ‘he runs around a lot & gets stuck in’ fans favourites.
One of the best City players in the last decade-you’re having a laugh.
He wouldn’t even make the top 50.
Modern footballers need brains these days and when JOB was at City he was bloody infuriating.
He might well have scored a few important goals but also was responsible for quite a few against when he was hopelessly out of position due to a complete lack of position.

Yes I have to agree his positional sense was poor but was always shouting and pointing at others about where they should be.
It’s a no from me, when he left it was the right time for him to do so

Coincided with the loss of form that season. Coincidence or a measure of the effect he had on the team? I particular remember the game against Shrewsbury that season where we were 2-0 down at half time. JOB came on as a sub at the start of the half and completely changed the game as we won 3-2.
Was against Peterborough. Armstrong scored with that great turn to win it
Apologies. You are right. Came from 2-0 down to win against them two seasons in a row.
He was a good player, on and off, but too much of a disruptive influence in the changing room I think.
Yes I recall the game tho as since stated was against Peterborough, great come back. I’d say it was more coincidence to why we fell away but obviously the case is there to say he was part of the side that started the season so well.
Other factors were more influential to why we fell away that year for me.

Would that be 4th from bottom Bradford?.............nah we're ok thanks
Poor man's Paul Telford and that's pretty poor.
Don’t remember Telford-was he any good?
Yep - played alongside Gordon Strapon and Noel Wheelon
We couldn't have a JOB and a LOB in the same team surely
If we sign a BLO as well it could get embarrassing
