Rumours of a civic reception and possible bus tour to mark the achievements of the city’s newest heroes have been boosted and dashed at the same time.

Speaking to a local newspaper, the Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Dale Smith spoke out about how Bradford City’s spectacular Capital One success should be celebrated but admitted that the chances of that happening soon are quite slim.

Due to Bradford City’s congested fixture list, the club are expected to only allow such a celebration when the season comes to an end, leaving an army of fans disappointed but willing to wait.

As we all know by now, Swansea City were flying high at Wembley with the Bantams unable to create one of the memorable upsets that we have been so accustomed of seeing during this year’s Capital One Cup.

The Swans may have won 5-0 but the proud Bradford fans were in full voice throughout the game as a sea of claret and amber dominated Wembley Stadium.
