Bradford City urged to keep calm and carry on

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Referee Scott Duncan shows City midfielder Nathan Doyle a red card as they were reduced to ten men during the first half of a 2-0 defeat at Wolves Referee Scott Duncan shows City midfielder Nathan Doyle a red card as they were reduced to ten men during the first half of a 2-0 defeat at Wolves

Phil Parkinson has called for calmness as City head into a run of games that could define their campaign.

Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Wolves leaves them seven points above the drop zone and still with only one win in four months.

Nathan Doyle also picked up their second first-half red card in successive games. He will miss the home clash with Crewe, the first of a spell against sides around or below City in League One.

Parkinson, whose team remain in mid-table, said: “We’ve got to be calm. We know what we’ve got to do.

“We’ll have a good week’s training and we’ll be ready for it. That’s all we can do.

“There are so many good things in the team at the moment. But we haven’t helped ourselves by going down to ten men. It was a really tough ask of us.”

Middlesbrough midfielder Matty Dolan is set to slot straight into the squad for Doyle.

Parkinson confirmed that an agreement is in place to take the 20-year-old on loan after they ran out of time trying to sign him before the transfer window shut.

“We’d agreed everything with Matty to come as a permanent signing because I was conscious that we might have too many loan players in the squad of 16,” said the City boss.

“Unfortunately there was a discussion between the two clubs about the sell-on clause they wanted and that dragged on through the night.

“It made the paperwork not get done on time, which was a real shame. But we’ve still got an agreement to bring him on loan next week.

“Matty’s a good young player and he’s got a good left foot. He’s competitive and has a good range of passing.

“We can have a look at him, check his fitness levels this week and see if we’re going to throw him straight in.”

City missed both James Hanson, with hamstring trouble, and Andrew Davies at Molineux.

The defender’s absence came as a shock to the travelling fans but Parkinson stressed his return would be managed carefully.

He said: “If you look at last season, I’m pretty sure when he came back he didn’t play back-to-back games straight away. It’s the same now.

“Ideally 70 minutes on Tuesday would have been enough for him. But we needed him out there the way the game was going and he got us the clean sheet.

“Andrew’s knee is stiff but that’s nothing he didn’t expect. We’ve just got to manage him and play him in the right games.”

Hanson and Davies were both in the crowd and Parkinson revealed that the targetman could have played at a push but he was wary of aggravating a problem. Andy Gray replaced Hanson for his first start in 11 months.

The City chief said: “The specialist said that because there’s a nerve problem in the hamstring, it can put him at greater risk of getting a more serious injury, so it was best to leave him.

“It was better to be cautious. But I thought Andy came in and played well in difficult circumstances.”

Doyle s second tackle and Yellow/Red was totally reckless. He let the Team down, and caused the subsequent loss of the match.
*
It begs the question why in two matches are City Players getting reckless red cards. It usually occurs when players have not played for some time. Then when they play first team action again, they react over the top and make bad tackles etc.
*
I feel 'Parky' needs to address discipline this week, during training. The league position and lack of wins, warrants a concerted lecture on the need for controlled aggression, and not reckless stupidity.
*
The signing of Matty Dolan smacks of deliberate delaying tactics. I hope this player is brought up to an 'Allenby' fitness level. Also, that he has been playing REGULARLY, otherwise he could be another potential Red Card victim.
*
WHEN ARE CITY GOING TO ORGANISE MORE 'STIFFS' MATCHES?.Players need to be in competitive matches, to get match fitness, as well as controlled aggression when playing.

Yep, lets re enter the reserve league, have to fulfill fixtures we don't want or need and risk more players getting injured. Or not!
Trust in Parky, and the board.
The players we are bringing in are better quality than those leaving the building. Let's get behind them. Davies being eased back is smart. Lets beat those below us in the next few weeks, get some breathing space between us and the lower teams, and continue planning for next season.
The interview on the pulse withe David Baldwin on Saturday was a revelation, as he set out what the club is doing and why.

They know what they are doing; sustainable, affordable improvement.

Freddy, Nick Allamby is becoming a little fed-up of you misspelling his name and trying to tell him his job. Nick has many qualifications whereas one assumes you have none. The manager also questions your knowledge of his job. The weatherman also points out that it has been the wettest January for decades and suggests that it would be extremely difficult to arrange matches. You are are also 'shouting.' I back the fitness 'guru', the manager and the weatherman (in this instance) and would ask that you try not to shout (like Shaun from Richmond likes to do).

Sick to death of hearing this one win in 19 crap. We have drawn 10 of them and been in all the games bar one. Fine lines between success and failure and also luck. The team is not far away from putting a few wins together so just get behind the lads or do one

It's no coincidence that this poor run started when Davies got injured. It was common sense to rest him in this game. Bates is getting better with every game and McHugh looks assured at left back. we've brough in some good loan players as well so all we really need is McClean to start firing and those draws will soon turn into wins. I'm still confident of a top half finish, there's still plenty of games to play.

on a side note, got to love the picture in the article, maybe McClean did score on Saturday!!!

Granted, you trail out your considerable opinion on a website, but does this make it informative? I think not.

I only criticise when it is necessary. In this case you obviously think it is OK for you to make quips on a public forum but don't like it when errors are brought to your attention.

I'm still confident of a top half finish, there's still plenty of games to play. on a side note, got to love the picture in the article, maybe McClean did score on Saturday!!![/p][/quote]The first thing I noticed about the picture was the fact that the club can spell Aaron's surname correctly! Perhaps you were too busy trying to make other connections?[/p][/quote]No, i was too busy trying to write an informative post rather than criticise other people's posts.[/p][/quote]Granted, you trail out your considerable opinion on a website, but does this make it informative? I think not. I only criticise when it is necessary. In this case you obviously think it is OK for you to make quips on a public forum but don't like it when errors are brought to your attention.

What a dissapointing display from City at Wolves normally you can hear the supporters over the home supporters but you could hear a pin drop in the away stand that tells you how poor City performed , don't seem to know what Parky is doing in relation to tactics, I understand playing with ten men is difficult but how does he expect to get. Results when we play 10 men in our own half for the majority of the game we had 2 shots on Sat one when we had 11 men on the pitch and one when we had 10 both hitting the post/crossbar, if we had our full compliment of players for the 90 min it would have made no differance to the result which on chances Wolves should have had 6, I just hope that he plays 2 wide men on sat and at least one attacking midfield player. Crewe are no world beaters yes they got a good result on Sat but when we played them at Crewe they were poor and if we fail to get 3points on Sat then we are in a lot of trouble and I can see all the hard work that was done last year to get the crowd up to 13 k at every home game this year may well disappear. With a bit of luck I can see 3 - 0 to City that's if Davis plays

All games should be played to WIN Teams should not expect to lose the attitude at all times should be we will win this game. It seems City expected to lose at Wolves and this is not the way to play football . We have one win in 18 games which is not good enough. The Directors have keept faith with Mr Parkinson which is a credit to them. His hands have been somewhat tied and he has been short of buying power . But now he needs to get results or i fear the axe could fall upon him. He is a good manager who needs a bit of luck and above all a bit of BRASS to improve our team I WISH HIM LUCK

The problem with relying on luck is that it has a habit of running out.
Success creates confidence and a better outlook promotes more positive outcomes. In other words, there are opportunities to create 'luck'. To suggest there has been a reliance on 'luck' is unfair.

It was inevitable that City would start 2013/4 with a bang. However, it is wishful to think that such a run could continue. (Who wasn't caught in the hype?).

It is the 'luck' that was earned on the back of promotion that will keep the team in League One. Anyone who doubts that does not have trust in the management.

No. What I am saying is that the you (figuratively) make your own luck. In other words the 'rub of the green' when things are going well. This is one of the reasons why the team got of to such a flying start and why the points gained will help City to remain in a League One.

Your interpretation was to suggest a dependency on the type of pot luck that someone would use when selecting Lotto numbers.

I hope that you can see the distinction.

It's about time City fans were treated with respect. We are some of the most loyal fans in the country, yet the board and Phil Parkinson are dragging the club down!! It was time to re-invest some of that Nakhi money yet we were given zero funds apart from Mclean, who have we got - some loans again.

I do not like Parkinson's tactics and style of defensive non attacking football. One win in 19 games is serious. Homes games are massive now and we really need to kick in and start getting some points.

Next season there are lot of players out of contract and free to go. I think we need a new manager too.

Who do you hold responsible for the rise in fortunes from the bottom of League Two to the middle of League One?

The club is in the process of re-building a team that is capable of attaining promotion to the Championship.

All this has had to be achieved without a significant outlay of cash.

This is a difficult league with some good teams in it. Yours is the kind of knee-jerk reaction and I would class you as anything other than loyal.

The interview on the pulse withe David Baldwin on Saturday was a revelation, as he set out what the club is doing and why.

They know what they are doing; sustainable, affordable improvement.
Sustainable my ar5e!! If it's sustainable, why the need to sell Wells? We can't keep selling our best assets to clear over-spend debts. That isn't sustainable, is it??

As for reserve games, it's funny how most other clubs are in the reserves leagues. In fact, for Academy status clubs, it is a requirement is it not? The youth team have only played once in the last few months, so the progression of the likes of Heaton, Stockdill, not to mention the likes of Clarkson simply stops. Once we picked up injuries, PP bemoaned the lack of match fitness of the likes of Oliver, Taylor, Kennedy and Gray. I wonder if PP would prefer the reserve league with a smattering of behind closed door games, instead of towing the party line???

It's about time City fans were treated with respect. We are some of the most loyal fans in the country, yet the board and Phil Parkinson are dragging the club down!! It was time to re-invest some of that Nakhi money yet we were given zero funds apart from Mclean, who have we got - some loans again. I do not like Parkinson's tactics and style of defensive non attacking football. One win in 19 games is serious. Homes games are massive now and we really need to kick in and start getting some points. Next season there are lot of players out of contract and free to go. I think we need a new manager too.
Who do you hold responsible for the rise in fortunes from the bottom of League Two to the middle of League One?

The club is in the process of re-building a team that is capable of attaining promotion to the Championship.

All this has had to be achieved without a significant outlay of cash.

This is a difficult league with some good teams in it. Yours is the kind of knee-jerk reaction and I would class you as anything other than loyal.
Now that is a fair comment

Sick to death of hearing this one win in 19 crap. We have drawn 10 of them and been in all the games bar one. Fine lines between success and failure and also luck. The team is not far away from putting a few wins together so just get behind the lads or do one
unfortunately when you rely on luck it sometimes runs out!

There is a libel writ in the post numb nuts. Be careful who you accuse of fraud/tax evasion.
And I am sure there are plenty of assets to go at!
plasma tv and a water bed that's all
I should think there will be a dog involved as well (of the canine variety). The type that barks all the time and is forever constipated through a lack of exercise and a poor diet.

Well I wouldn't say that I tell others to be calm. However, I do enjoy getting stuck in when I think the need arises.

Picking out a spelling mistake (per se) is churlish but when, in this case, the guy has made reference to a picture, containing a spelling, there was a certain irony / humour in making the associated balls up. Particularly when the poster has had so much to say for himself

I don't want to go tit-for-tat with you and I enjoy your posts even if I do not always agree. Having said that, I do not think it is necessary for you to be seen as springing to the defence of others whenever I appear critical. You have the tendency to do this.
