  BOB BLACKBURN’S A-Z – EXCLUSIVE!

When he's not bankrolling trips to Spain or pub teams to 9th place in the Northern Premier League, Bradford Park Avenue (1988) Ltd chairman Robert Blackburn, or 'The General' as he is known to a bunch of basement-dwelling internet freakoids, is generally found supplying

- unofficial internet websites dedicated to relegation-threatened Boston United with hilarious answers to an irregular A-Z series.

Take it away, Señor......

What is your AMBITION in football?
To take the BPA open-top bus ride across Bradford, showing off the Champions League and Premier League trophies to the 536 fans we have who have lined the streets to welcome their heroes back to the 20,000-seater stadium I built.

Sangria. I supped plenty of the stuff during the team’s tour of Spain when we played against a load of imaginary teams.
WE WILL BE BIGGER THAN BRADFORD CITY IN THREE WEEKS I PROMISE!!!!!!! – The General
