Albion squandered the two-goal lead given to them by Billy Kee and Aaron Webster in the first half as their League Two rivals hit back with late goals to send the third-round tie into extra time, where a long-range effort from Stephen Darby after 115 minutes won it for the Bantams.

"Obviously, we are very disappointed to go out of the cup," said Rowett.

"Bradford's first goal was a poor goal to concede and when you concede after 83 minutes there is a fear that they might nick another one.

"I can't fault the players - I thought they were terrific.

"The team worked their socks off and gave a terrific performance against a very good side, although I was disappointed with one or two decisions and I felt we didn't get the rub of the green."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
