Let’s take a look at the movements of some of our ex players, some we idolised over, some we over rated, some we didn’t appreciate. I am sure some of these movements this close season may raise a couple of eyebrows, some I am sure will be as surprising as vanilla flavoured ice-cream, and some, well, some many will be surprised are still playing such as Donovan Ricketts moving to Tulsa Roughnecks earlier this year in a player coach role. Whilst I am focusing on the career paths of ex Bantams, I will just mention quickly Carl McHugh has now been made Motherwell Captain.
