He has been appointed manager of League 1 side Bradford City on a two-year contract. He had a brief spell there as a player.

I thought Hopkin would have got the job when they appointed Collins (?) and was surprised at the time. I think that is a great appointment for Bradford.

Fair play to the guy, said he was waiting for a move down south and actually did... unlike some.

It's the job nobody wanted. You have to coach a squad that you didn't sign and if rumours are correct you don't even get to pick the team. That is done by the director of football and the chair scout. Their best player from last season has been frozen out this season apparently because he questioned the way things are run and he was due a pay rise if he made any more appearances and is now at Hamilton. I hope he does well but it will be hard for him he is not a fans favourite for allegedly refusing to any cut in monies due to him when the club went into administration.

If he does succeed,lets be honest Livingston weren't even favorite's for the first let alone go straight to SPL,then his reputation goes through the roof.

If he doesn't then as Berkey said he is a pretty well off guy.

"3 months in Bradford though."

Decent few curry houses to keep him ticking over

Good point. Although he'll definitely need a bigger jumper.
