What is The City Gent Magazine?

So here we go into the 32nd season of The City Gent as we head for 31 years of continuous publication and thus making The City Gent the longest running football fanzine in the UK. 2014/15 saw Bradford City perform heroically well in the FA Cup which saw the mighty Bantams progress to the quarter-final disposing of Premier League champions elect Chelsea after giving them a 2 goal start on their own pitch, as well as knocking out Premier League Sunderland in the 5th round. The club just fell short of reaching Wembley both for the semi-final or via the play-offs, but it is a fair bet that there will be more of the same from the Bantams during 2015/16.

The summer saw another of the 2012/13 'history makers' leave when Andrew Davies couldn't agree a new contract with the club. Manager Phil Parkinson worked hard as ever to bring in new players into the squad which definitely has the makings of a side that will challenge for the top six this season. And who knows, they may even try and repeat their FA Cup exploits of 2015/15. What is a certainty, is that following Bradford City is always interesting and never dull, which, for writers of The City Gent is always good as there is always something to comment on.

The City Gent whilst being the voice of Bantam Progressivism is hopeful about the team's prospects in League One for 2015/16 and as always the contents of each and every issue of The City Gent will reflect on what is happening both on and off the pitch at Valley Parade as The City Gent continues to be the oldest surviving football fanzine in the country.
