Everthing considered, I would not expect Paul to play again for the Stanley!

Great Guy!...Best of Luck Paul!

I reckon this decision calls for chant after chant of 'There's only 1 Paul Mullin' tomorrow.

100% agree with you! who ever runs out in place of Mullin needs 100% backing all way through the game, because no doubt in his own mind he knows he will have abit of pressure

but tomorrow is going to be very good

Re: Mullers Gone To Bantams

i reckon paul mullin will def be back at stanley for the start of next season! even if he does well for bradford they won't want to pay a transfer fee. i know it seems a strange decision to let him go for the last couple months of the season, but with accy being more or less safe from the drop it isn't that big a gamble. it gets his wages off the bill for a while & does anyone have an idea of the money bradford have paid stanley for the loan?? unless you do can we really know if this is a good or bad deal for our club?

Re: Mullers Gone To Bantams

I agree with Jeff and Cashman. I think Paul, great servant though he has been, has looked decidedly jaded in recent weeks. In fact, against Vale on Tuesday I thopught he had a bit of a 'mare. THe truth is, we have to look forward and, like it or not, a 35 year old Paul Mullin is not the fufure of the club. Now at least we'll get the chance to see how we look without him - and sending him on loan to Bradford is certainly a better option than just dropping him, which I felt was something we ought to be thinking about.

If he does well, regains a bit of form and comes back, then great. If not, then so be it. No player is bigger than the club.

What we need to do now is to get behind the new guys - singing songs about a Bradford Ciry player is not the kind of thing which will do their confidence any good at all.

then why didnt we say no.. why didnt we tell him we need you here to help us survive.. the excuse so far is.. he wanted to go and its best for him.... how does that work if the club is more important than one man?

we should ahve kept him and he would have still played his heart out for us because he is that sort of person.. instead we went for the pound notes.. typical..

now look at some of the posts on here saying forget paul mullin... ok if we win on saturday and tuesday then its all worked out.

but to say forget paul mullin he is a bradfford player... thats sad I for one never thought i would see stanley fans saying that about PM

" why didnt we tell him we need you here to help us survive.. "

Presumably because we feel we don't need him to help us survive - and that I agree with.

Re: Mullers Gone To Bantams

There is clearly no other reason except for the club's money troubles why we have had to allow Paul Mullin to go out on loan. We must've received a multitude of these kind of offers in the past and have been able to decline them. The garble on the website about Paul wanting to play at a different level is utter tosh. Paul Mullin signed a two year contract intending to see out his career in red, not in Bratfoot's minging kit. If we lose Paul Mullin this summer, the people at the club will have let Accrington Stanley and it's fans down, big time. But that's just conjecture for now.

I still think that this whole nightmarish episode is the worst piece of business ever done.... and we have seen Justin Jackson here.

Re: Mullers Gone To Bantams

If Paul Mullin did not want to go on loan to bradford he would of said no. No club can force a player to go somewhere they do not want to go! Now unless anyone has spoken to Paul in the last 5 hours than we will just have to take the club's word for it! Whether people belive it or not! Tomorrow we are playing without him and we should get behind ever stanley player tomorrow. Paul Mullin is a Stanley legend and always will be but for that 90mins tomorrow, back every stanley player sing the players song's, song's about the club and the managerment. Win, Lose or draw Stanley will still be football league next year. Whether Mullin will be apart of that is something we will just have to wait to see. But if we lose tomorrow it's nor the club's fault or Mullins fault. That fact that they are 6th and we are 19th may have something to do with it! Everything will be good, we had to play without Mullin someday and this has come sooner than some would of liked!

Utter rubbish.

Also, your "oh well, Paul's gone, get over it and move on" attitude just won't cut it. Paul signed for Stanley a season or two after I started coming on the Crown regularly and his exemplary footballing ethic has been one of the main reasons why I've continued to watch the reds. If anyone embodies Accrington Stanley, Paul Mullin is far ahead of any other contender. It is impossible to feel positive about the Exeter game when there's such a huge feeling of loss. It sounds stupid and melodramatic but it's true. Come back Paul!
