Bradford fume as TV chiefs turn back on FA Cup fairytale stars
BRADFORD’S joint chairman Mark Lawn said TV bosses should “hang their heads in shame” after choosing not to broadcast the club’s next FA Cup tie live on television.
The club won many admirers when fighting back from two goals down to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend in one of the biggest upsets of all time.
But neither the BBC or BT Sport will be showing live coverage of their fifth-round tie against either Sunderland or Fulham at Valley Parade.
“Whoever made the decisions at the BBC and BT Sport should hang their heads in shame,” Lawn said. “They all promote the FA Cup’s magic and romance, but where’s the magic gone now? I don’t understand how we can’t be one of the five televised games after our efforts last Saturday. It’s a disgrace.” BRAZILIAN defender Gabriel Paulista is confident he can take his game to the next level at Arsenal.
The 24-year-old’s permanent transfer from Villarreal, said to be worth around £15million, was finally confirmed by Arsenal yesterday with Costa Rica striker Joel Campbell moved in the other direction on loan for the rest of the season.
“We have a lot to conquer because Arsenal is a very big club, we must always be at the top,” he said.
