Phil Parkinson admits Bradford City in battle to stay up

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Aaron Mclean puts Carlisle goalkeeper Jordan Pickford under pressure Aaron Mclean puts Carlisle goalkeeper Jordan Pickford under pressure

Phil Parkinson admitted City must “get real” and face up to a League One survival scrap.

Last night’s 1-0 loss at Carlisle stretched their barren run to 13 games since the last win and leaves them five points off the bottom four.

Despite remaining just below mid-table, Parkinson insisted there was no hiding from the clutch of clubs snapping at their heels.

The City boss said: “We’ve got to be realistic. We are on a terrible run and need to find a way out of it.

“We can’t just say we are looking above us. Recent results suggest it would be unrealistic to do that.

“We’ve got to look below and have got to look to the next game to turn this run round.”

Lee Miller’s overhead kick after 14 minutes proved decisive at Brunton Park in a game between two sides struggling for form. Carlisle had lost six of their previous seven beforehand.

City should have cleared the danger from James Berrett’s corner before Miller was allowed to pounce.

Parkinson said: “It’s so disappointing. We’ve come away from home and restricted the home team to practically nothing all night apart from one breakaway.

“But they’ve got a corner, we’ve had the chance to clear it and then the chance to clear again. We haven’t done it and their lad has overhead-kicked it into the back of the net.

“I thought we did well up to the goal but after that we really lost our way in terms of the composure in our play. We looked like a team low in confidence up to half-time.

“We came out for the second half and played so much better, controlling the game for large periods. But we just couldn’t get the goal. We lacked a little bit of craft up front.

“There were some great crosses but there wasn’t enough from us in and around the box. That’s what we lacked.

“It’s really frustrating. We just need a break at the moment and I’m trying every way I can to find a solution to the run we’ve been on.”

Parkinson has faith in his squad to halt the current slide – and pointed to the recent two-goal fightbacks against Sheffield United and Crewe as proof of the fighting qualities needed.

“It’s difficult but we’ve just got to keep the character in the team right,” he said.

“If you look at us, that still stands up very well in my eyes. Look at the Sheffield United performance and the one on Saturday.

“Players who’ve been in every game of this run like Gary Jones are hurting because they are winners like myself. We hate losing.

“To concede that first goal again was tough but we kept going second half. I thought we did everything but find that final bit of class in the box.”

Parkinson subbed new recruit Matty Dolan for Nathan Doyle at half-time.

He said: “Matty found it tough but he’s a good player. He did great for us on Saturday and it’s no slight on his performance.

“I just felt Doyley’s composure on the ball and bit of freshness would help and I thought he did well.”

Personally I believe we've got more than enough quality to stay up but the team needs to back that statement up by producing points. One thing is for certain BCFC needs cool heads on and off the pitch.

Listened to the game and once again we've had enough ball to have got a point out of the game but we did seem to struggle to create chances. Also it was as plain as the nose on my face that as soon as Hanson went off we had no cutting edge whatsoever. Adam Reach seemed to have another excellent game. No panic, as PP says, keep working hard and hopefully BCFC will turn the corner. Self belief is key!!!!!!

Yes, but didn't you say that two seasons ago? It would be wrong to sack any manager who was in charge this season with the results City have had. In most games City have played quite well and in most games there is not much between the teams. It was the same last season. If the club had been bottom of the league from the start, there may be reason to look at it. City have been competitive in a very competitve division, as all the Football League is. Looking at two seasons ago and last season as examples, the last thing the club needs are the usual panic stricken headless chickens running around with their empty solutions. Namely, sack the manager. It's their one and only answer. What the club needs (as usual) are calm heads. So I support Phil and the players. Obviously in the current climate this will attract a load of abuse, but that's the nature of football. Over to you!

PP Contradicting himself a bit here. He said “There were some great crosses but there wasn’t enough from us in and around the box. That’s what we lacked"
Then at half time brings Doyle on for Dolan!!?? He is a good player, but too defense minded.
Why didnt he bring the "Box to Box" Midfielder Atkinson on??
The mind Boggles sometimes.
Trying to keep the faith, but you aint making it easy PP!!?
CTID!!

I Have always supported Mr Parkinson. But he now says he has done all he can. This being the case and bearing in mind 1 win in 21 games it is maybe time now to part company i say this with a heavy heart for he is a honest manager whos hands have been somewhat tied but in truth he himself must now admit his ways are no longer working what ever the reason so some kind of action is now needed before it is to late

Self belief is the key and there seems to plenty of it about in all the pre-match chat but there is none on the field apart from Jonesy and Darby who consistently play well. Reach is also working hard but last night we lost to a very poor team and parts of the game were pitiful to watch.
The support was good but even the most positive of us who will continue to support our team through thick and thin cannot ignore the fact that we are heading for an almighty battle against relegation. Teams lower in the table have beaten or held us in games that had been regarded as 3 pointers.
Nationally, we are being tagged 'Free-fall Bradford City' as our alarming decline becomes ever more topical.
PP deservedly took the plaudits last season - our season was amazing but he hasn't followed up well. His recruitment has been poor and too often he has been outsmarted tactically.
At the moment, it is difficult to see where a win will come from. It's going to be a difficult journey and I just hope and pray that we get a few breaks before our position becomes irretrievable.
I understand those who are suggesting that Parky be replaced but I don't see that happening. The board have said that he is the man to take us into the Championship....
Well, last night at Carlisle, the Championship seemed a very long way off and both teams on show looked as though they belonged in a lower division.
Jimmy Greaves used to say that football was a 'funny old game'.....what's happening to Bradford City is not funny....watching them last night was painful..
Like every other supporter, I want us to snap out of this awful run....I'm worried but still full of hope.
Come on Parky...you and every player need to be ready to scrap...like Jones...he needs help....he has self belief in abundance...time for the talking to stop and for you and your players to start delivering on the pitch. The support is there every week - rain or shine - make them proud!........but please be quick!

You talk of "Self Belief"...ITS THE PLAYERS who need that.....and they don't have it!.
We have 4 players who have quality IMO, THATS IT!..Davies, Jones, Reach, Hanson (he had a shocker last night!) the rest are either on shocking form or Pub players.
So I am not sure "HOW" you believe we are too good to go down??

All of the people piping up about how Parkinson should be sacked need to remember that we only just got promoted half a season ago!!

The first season Parky came in, we were poor - Then the process began to get rid of the lower quality squad members, and build a proper band of brothers.
I believe the same needs to be done again this season.

Parkinson has steered us up to where we are now, and he'll take us beyond here without a doubt.

There's no point in spending loads of cash now, hence no new players brought in during January's transfer window (other than the loanees).
It's shrewd management IMO.

Let's be content with a mid table finish in our first season in this new league - then smash it next season with new players and some spending power.

Get behind your manager ffs.

Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.

Time for cool heads, statistically there may be a short term improvement when a manager is sacked but overall it generally makes no difference at all.
Two years ago we were 19th in League Two after 30 games with 32 points and many were calling for Parkinson to go back then. We managed to recover and win five and draw three of the last 16 games to finish 18th with 50 points. I don't believe there's any reason why he can't do the same now.

How can we be in freefall, we're 13th and haven't moved either up or down more than one place for weeks. We've lost 9 games all season, how does that equate to a team in freefall. What's said nationally about Bradford City doesn't matter one jot if it based on moving one place in the league.

Self belief is key!!!!!![/p][/quote]Self belief is the key and there seems to plenty of it about in all the pre-match chat but there is none on the field apart from Jonesy and Darby who consistently play well. Reach is also working hard but last night we lost to a very poor team and parts of the game were pitiful to watch. The support was good but even the most positive of us who will continue to support our team through thick and thin cannot ignore the fact that we are heading for an almighty battle against relegation. Teams lower in the table have beaten or held us in games that had been regarded as 3 pointers. Nationally, we are being tagged 'Free-fall Bradford City' as our alarming decline becomes ever more topical. PP deservedly took the plaudits last season - our season was amazing but he hasn't followed up well. His recruitment has been poor and too often he has been outsmarted tactically. At the moment, it is difficult to see where a win will come from. It's going to be a difficult journey and I just hope and pray that we get a few breaks before our position becomes irretrievable. I understand those who are suggesting that Parky be replaced but I don't see that happening. The board have said that he is the man to take us into the Championship.... Well, last night at Carlisle, the Championship seemed a very long way off and both teams on show looked as though they belonged in a lower division. Jimmy Greaves used to say that football was a 'funny old game'.....what's happening to Bradford City is not funny....watching them last night was painful.. Like every other supporter, I want us to snap out of this awful run....I'm worried but still full of hope. Come on Parky...you and every player need to be ready to scrap...like Jones...he needs help....he has self belief in abundance...time for the talking to stop and for you and your players to start delivering on the pitch.

Well I went to the game!......Carlisle are SHOCKING!...and they beat us!.
You talk of "Self Belief"...ITS THE PLAYERS who need that.....and they don't have it!.
We have 4 players who have quality IMO, THATS IT!..Davies, Jones, Reach, Hanson (he had a shocker last night!) the rest are either on shocking form or Pub players.
So I am not sure "HOW" you believe we are too good to go down??
So you don't believe Darby is a quality player? If you believe our current squad are pub players what does that make the players you're mate Jacko signed?

Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.
THE POINT IS...Its not YOU or ME that's giving up!....Its the players!....Yes I am one of the Negatrons on this site....Or as I like to call it, REALIST!.....On the last couple of games (Remember Carlisle are DIRE!) we are going DOWN!
Make no mistake!

If Parky went on to win the Champions League with us and then got sacked after a poor run of form you'd still say 'See, I told you he was cr@p'
You've told yourself from day 1 that PP was no good and there is absolutely nothing that will shake you from that mindset.
You were totally absent on here during the 'good times' last season and now we are struggling you're here to tell us that you were right all along! Jog on c0ck shine.

PP also saved this club from non league football the season after, or have you forgotten? All the more remarkable considering he inherited the dross that St Jack had assembled.

Negative you are a realist you are not. You lose all credibility when you start calling City players pub players. Anyone sensible would have taken mid table at this stage and performance and team spirit have not necessarily been reflected in results over the winless period. That said last night was a game that we should have been getting something. Lack of quality at both ends is costing us. Some of those who appear at present to be auto pilot need to step up and show Jonahs level of commitment to the cause. With Jonah and positive support we should be ok. God help us if he gets injured.

Playing hell with Shaun is doing no good.He has some valid points as you yourself have. But let us look at the facts 1 win in 21 games. Prolific Goal Scorer who has not done so in 4 games indeed does not look like doing so it is a long time since he scored many goals Manager now says I Have done all i can.

These are worrying times and yes we are in free fall 1 win in 20 league games proves that, we may be 13th in the League but if this run doesn't end very soon we will be very near the bottom 4 and that is a fact! I am not one for changing managers but this run cannot continue so I think the next 4 games are crucial being Coventry away then 3 home games in a row, we will know by then if Parkinson will be the man to save us, if not that is the time for change!

You have advocated nothing other than change for the sake of change.

Who would be a suitable replacement? What if the new manager took the side into the bottom four?

Why is it that anyone critical of Parkinson makes nebulous statements without actually offering any solutions?

I don't think sacking Parky will do any good, but he needs to look at some key areas(; 1) Change the goalkeeper for a start, (2) get a left back Bates is not the answer. (3) Change your tactics Parky and stop being do defensively minded and (4) get a plan B because you don't have one nothing changed on Sat against Crewe after going 2 down it was just 2 great strikes from a 36 year old that got us out of jail.

Totally agree and agree with the earlier comments about team self belief and motivation.

Any "manager" whether in football or any other management role when looking to inspire and motivate doesn't have the attitude PP has.

He quickly needs to change that to change his team's performances. If he cant then he isn't the man for job and Lawn should replace sharpish.

If I was a City player reading this story I would be horribly demotivated with statements like this from my so called manager

If a new manager came in he couldn't do any worse than parkinson could he?

Keep parkinson we're going down!!!
Can't believe people still keep backing him when we are NOT winning games!

Yes, but didn't you say that two seasons ago? It would be wrong to sack any manager who was in charge this season with the results City have had. In most games City have played quite well and in most games there is not much between the teams. It was the same last season. If the club had been bottom of the league from the start, there may be reason to look at it. City have been competitive in a very competitve division, as all the Football League is. Looking at two seasons ago and last season as examples, the last thing the club needs are the usual panic stricken headless chickens running around with their empty solutions. Namely, sack the manager. It's their one and only answer. What the club needs (as usual) are calm heads. So I support Phil and the players. Obviously in the current climate this will attract a load of abuse, but that's the nature of football. Over to you!

In no way is sacking PP the right option! It has to be remembered that we have brought in a significant amount of players in January and these players need time to adjust to the team and get to know their teammates. Admittedly performances have not been consistent enough and results have not been good enough but as fans we have to be behind the club in difficult times. I think that we are missing Meredith badly and need the balance that he brings to the team. Staying in this league whichever way it comes about should be viewed as a success for a newly promoted team but we have to make sure that we start winning a few games to stop the teams below dragging us into trouble!

If Parky went on to win the Champions League with us and then got sacked after a poor run of form you'd still say 'See, I told you he was cr@p'
You've told yourself from day 1 that PP was no good and there is absolutely nothing that will shake you from that mindset.
You were totally absent on here during the 'good times' last season and now we are struggling you're here to tell us that you were right all along! Jog on c0ck shine.

Negative you are a realist you are not. You lose all credibility when you start calling City players pub players. Anyone sensible would have taken mid table at this stage and performance and team spirit have not necessarily been reflected in results over the winless period. That said last night was a game that we should have been getting something. Lack of quality at both ends is costing us. Some of those who appear at present to be auto pilot need to step up and show Jonahs level of commitment to the cause. With Jonah and positive support we should be ok. God help us if he gets injured.
What are you on about????

Playing hell with Shaun is doing no good.He has some valid points as you yourself have. But let us look at the facts 1 win in 21 games. Prolific Goal Scorer who has not done so in 4 games indeed does not look like doing so it is a long time since he scored many goals Manager now says I Have done all i can. Conclusion TIME FOR CHANGE if you can do no more on your own say so surely things cannot remain has they are
Perhaps if you actually took off your blinkers which only allows you to see what you want to see.

Phil Parkinson actually said - “It’s really frustrating. We just need a break at the moment and I’m trying every way I can to find a solution to the run we’ve been on.”

HE DID NOT SAY HE HAS DONE ALL HE CAN. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE.
He is still giving everything and trying everything to stop this bad run - EVERYONE connected to the club should be doing the same, and for us that is to support.

Some of you lot really have no idea and are sucked in by the short termism of the premier league and Championship manager.

Welcome to the real world, we have progressed to a higher level thanks to fantastic work from everyone connected to the club last season, being promoted gives no right to then progress again, we have a similar budget, so there for were most likely to struggle a bit with the step up in class. Once we get through this season, it is then time to build on what we have learnt from this season.

THAT IS WHAT IS CALLED BEING A REALIST SEAN!

You barely posted at all. On the odd occasions you did post it was things like 'Normal service IS RESUMED!!' after we lost. As for the 'PERSONAL stuff' at the end - It's so boring reading your posts. You say the same thing in each one, you just change the words slightly. You add nothing to the debate so either come up with some suggestions or jog on.

1 win in 21 games is just not good enough – I know many of these matches have ended in draws but this run of form at any other club would result in the manager being sacked!
I made a comment last night calling for the manager to be sacked – in all honesty it was probably just a knee jerk reaction to losing another game to a shocking outfit like Carlisle.
Parkinson has done a very good job overall – but we cannot keep dining out on last season – this is now in the past, focus needs to be on securing league 1 football for next season, at the moment this is looking like a big ask.
We need the talking to stop and something to be done on the pitch. I would happily take a mid table finish (like many fans) and then start to rebuild in the summer – but this is a million miles away at the moment.
Whilst no team is going to make it easy for us, we need to actually start taking games to teams from the first whistle – we seem to be far too worried about the opposition – how about we let them worry about us (though at the moment, pub teams would find it hard to worry about us!!!)
I really hope we can turn it around, we don’t want to undo all the good work from last season.
One thing that needs addressing is why bring some players in on loan (Atkinson) and not use them – we have been crying out for a box to box midfielder all season – Parky states we have one and he doesn’t use him!! Some of his signings this year have been laughable – Kennedy is probably the worst midfielder I have seen since Darren Morgan! – I will reserve judgement on Aaron McLean as I remember him in his Peterborough days – he was very useful indeed – let’s hope he can hit some form sooner rather than later, and forge a partnership with Hanson
The next 4 games are crucial

Parky out and replaced with who?
How much difference is a new manger going to make with the same players and 16 games left to play?
I assume you already have answers to these questions, or do you just think sacking the manager will suddenly make everything better?

Listened to the game and once again we've had enough ball to have got a point out of the game but we did seem to struggle to create chances. Also it was as plain as the nose on my face that as soon as Hanson went off we had no cutting edge whatsoever. Adam Reach seemed to have another excellent game. No panic, as PP says, keep working hard and hopefully BCFC will turn the corner. Self belief is key!!!!!!
Well I went to the game!......Carlisle are SHOCKING!...and they beat us!.
You talk of "Self Belief"...ITS THE PLAYERS who need that.....and they don't have it!.
We have 4 players who have quality IMO, THATS IT!..Davies, Jones, Reach, Hanson (he had a shocker last night!) the rest are either on shocking form or Pub players.
So I am not sure "HOW" you believe we are too good to go down??
Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.
THE POINT IS...Its not YOU or ME that's giving up!....Its the players!....Yes I am one of the Negatrons on this site....Or as I like to call it, REALIST!.....On the last couple of games (Remember Carlisle are DIRE!) we are going DOWN!
Make no mistake!
No .....they have not given up, there confidence is low, there's a difference. We wont go down, teams don't go down that continually come back from goals down, that shows the determination in the players. Parkinson has a great work ethic and that is instilled into the squad, a little luck wouldn't go a miss and I believe with that work ethic BCFC will eventually make their own.

And so the terminally short of IQ are out in force with cliches and selective stats. Why is it only the last 20 games that count towards the statistics. In terms of games lost, goals scored and goals conceded we are above average on all measure in League One. The wins column is too light but a least a lot of these have been draws and not defeats. We are seeing the same reaction that we see every season when we ar not winning every match; it happened to Taylor, McCall, Todd and PP two years ago. It's now happening again all based on what may or may not happen over the next 17 games.

The calls for change that some have made is as ever down to some fans being unable to cope with the frustration of being a football fan. Do grow up.

Personally, I am looking forward to a win at sixfields this weekend; we always win there!

If Parky went on to win the Champions League with us and then got sacked after a poor run of form you'd still say 'See, I told you he was cr@p' You've told yourself from day 1 that PP was no good and there is absolutely nothing that will shake you from that mindset. You were totally absent on here during the 'good times' last season and now we are struggling you're here to tell us that you were right all along! Jog on c0ck shine.

You barely posted at all. On the odd occasions you did post it was things like 'Normal service IS RESUMED!!' after we lost. As for the 'PERSONAL stuff' at the end - It's so boring reading your posts.

Because 20 games is nearly half a season and by winning only once equates to about 2 wins a season, so that is something to be really worried about! As for winning at Sixfields we may have a good record there but we're not playing Northampton, so just where you get this optimism from is baffling to say the least!

It all started to go Pear shaped after the Coventry game, their Manager said our football was out of the dark ages. Maybe the league teams "caught on" who knows.
If you are going to select a point where things did go "pear shaped" I would suggest you are looking at results alone.

If this is the basis of your argument then, in fact, it was the Shrewsbury Town match (during which Nakhi Wells got kicked) and a subsequent game against Tranmere that are significant.

But did it actually go 'pear shaped' at all?

Is it not just a case of finding equilibrium in order to realise where things are at?

If Parky went on to win the Champions League with us and then got sacked after a poor run of form you'd still say 'See, I told you he was cr@p' You've told yourself from day 1 that PP was no good and there is absolutely nothing that will shake you from that mindset. You were totally absent on here during the 'good times' last season and now we are struggling you're here to tell us that you were right all along! Jog on c0ck shine.
I NEVER stopped posting during the Run we had last year....BUT OF COURSE...You would LOVE to think I did! Why the PERSONAL stuff at the end???
You barely posted at all. On the odd occasions you did post it was things like 'Normal service IS RESUMED!!' after we lost. As for the 'PERSONAL stuff' at the end - It's so boring reading your posts. You say the same thing in each one, you just change the words slightly. You add nothing to the debate so either come up with some suggestions or jog on.
If you are saying I did not post regularly during the "Good Times"..YOU ARE A LIAR!!...Which is not an insult, ITS A FACT!. If my postings are "So boring" why comment on them regularly?...FACT!.
You did not post with anything like the same regularity as you did before and have done after. Many of the other posters noticed you absence and often posted things like 'All gone quiet from Shaun' during the good times.
I'm not going to trawl through the archives to prove the point but many will back me up on this.
Also I think you need to learn what 'FACT' actually means as you've misused it a couple of times in your post above.

Its inevitable that there should be calls to sack the manager, we have lost touch with our early season position and are dangerously close to a relegation spot. But it has been pointed out the loss column doesn't show a high number and we have been hard to beat. This is now slipping a little and PP is showing publicly, the frustration we all have.
I'd say stick with it Phil, believe in yourself and our team - you are not a bad manager. My view is that we need a settled management and PP will make progress despite set backs.
We do have to remember its the players who score/concede goals no matter what instructions. Cut out the mistakes and we'll win a lot more than we lose that's the nature of the league we are in. But fans shouldn't make the players afraid to take risks through over critical assessment and its the same for the management. My preference is to see partnerships on the pitch, playing in triangles, give and go, but I also hate shirt pulling and diving so I realise I will not get my own way.
But we all need to stick together to be stronger at this time

Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.
THE POINT IS...Its not YOU or ME that's giving up!....Its the players!....Yes I am one of the Negatrons on this site....Or as I like to call it, REALIST!.....On the last couple of games (Remember Carlisle are DIRE!) we are going DOWN! Make no mistake!
No .....they have not given up, there confidence is low, there's a difference. We wont go down, teams don't go down that continually come back from goals down, that shows the determination in the players. Parkinson has a great work ethic and that is instilled into the squad, a little luck wouldn't go a miss and I believe with that work ethic BCFC will eventually make their own.
WORK ETHIC???...They don't know what they are doing...ITS A SHAMBLES....For Goodness sake OPEN YOUR EYES!.
A bit like you?
Well at least you now agree!
You were no doubt lapping it up at Wembley "supporting" the players you now categorise as Pub players. Its pathetic frankly.

London bcfc says...

I think it's time for pp to move on, it's great what he did last season, but that was last season (Ramsey eventually got sacked despite 1966's exploits). When teams realised we only play hoof ball through Hanson, a good manager would have found a plan B and exploited the fact that other teams were set up for the long ball game. I know Ramsey got sacked many years later but he carried on delivering for years after

If Parky went on to win the Champions League with us and then got sacked after a poor run of form you'd still say 'See, I told you he was cr@p'
You've told yourself from day 1 that PP was no good and there is absolutely nothing that will shake you from that mindset.
You were totally absent on here during the 'good times' last season and now we are struggling you're here to tell us that you were right all along! Jog on c0ck shine.
Playing hell with Shaun is doing no good.He has some valid points as you yourself have. But let us look at the facts 1 win in 21 games. Prolific Goal Scorer who has not done so in 4 games indeed does not look like doing so it is a long time since he scored many goals Manager now says I Have done all i can. Conclusion TIME FOR CHANGE if you can do no more on your own say so surely things cannot remain has they are
Perhaps if you actually took off your blinkers which only allows you to see what you want to see.

Phil Parkinson actually said - “It’s really frustrating. We just need a break at the moment and I’m trying every way I can to find a solution to the run we’ve been on.”

HE DID NOT SAY HE HAS DONE ALL HE CAN. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE.
He is still giving everything and trying everything to stop this bad run - EVERYONE connected to the club should be doing the same, and for us that is to support.

Some of you lot really have no idea and are sucked in by the short termism of the premier league and Championship manager.

Welcome to the real world, we have progressed to a higher level thanks to fantastic work from everyone connected to the club last season, being promoted gives no right to then progress again, we have a similar budget, so there for were most likely to struggle a bit with the step up in class. Once we get through this season, it is then time to build on what we have learnt from this season.

THAT IS WHAT IS CALLED BEING A REALIST SEAN!

Phil is quoted in the Sun i have done all i can However i have always backed him and always said he is a ood manager but surely now he needs to do something quickly or fall on his sword

I NEVER stopped posting during the Run we had last year....BUT OF COURSE...You would LOVE to think I did! Why the PERSONAL stuff at the end???
You barely posted at all. On the odd occasions you did post it was things like 'Normal service IS RESUMED!!' after we lost. As for the 'PERSONAL stuff' at the end - It's so boring reading your posts. You say the same thing in each one, you just change the words slightly. You add nothing to the debate so either come up with some suggestions or jog on.
If you are saying I did not post regularly during the "Good Times"..YOU ARE A LIAR!!...Which is not an insult, ITS A FACT!. If my postings are "So boring" why comment on them regularly?...FACT!.
You did not post with anything like the same regularity as you did before and have done after. Many of the other posters noticed you absence and often posted things like 'All gone quiet from Shaun' during the good times.
I'm not going to trawl through the archives to prove the point but many will back me up on this.
Also I think you need to learn what 'FACT' actually means as you've misused it a couple of times in your post above.
Then you agree you are a "LIAR"..I think you will find should you trawl through the archives "I was constantly attacked because I was not "moaning or complaining"...but of course your not interested in the truth...BECAUSE YOU ARE A LIAR!....FACT!

Now I'm not one that wants pp gone but we need to face the facts we've not really looked like scoring since wells left can't seem to get anybody in the box we must be the only team to play long ball football every other team we have seen get the ball down and pass the ball not lump the ball and hope Hans can get a flick on when there is never anyone following through and pp also says he has done what he can do with the club I have to say don't fill me with confidence so god knows how the players will feel

I'd say stick with it Phil, believe in yourself and our team - you are not a bad manager. My view is that we need a settled management and PP will make progress despite set backs.
We do have to remember its the players who score/concede goals no matter what instructions. Cut out the mistakes and we'll win a lot more than we lose that's the nature of the league we are in. But fans shouldn't make the players afraid to take risks through over critical assessment and its the same for the management. My preference is to see partnerships on the pitch, playing in triangles, give and go, but I also hate shirt pulling and diving so I realise I will not get my own way.

Self belief is the key and there seems to plenty of it about in all the pre-match chat but there is none on the field apart from Jonesy and Darby who consistently play well. Reach is also working hard but last night we lost to a very poor team and parts of the game were pitiful to watch.
The support was good but even the most positive of us who will continue to support our team through thick and thin cannot ignore the fact that we are heading for an almighty battle against relegation. Teams lower in the table have beaten or held us in games that had been regarded as 3 pointers.
Nationally, we are being tagged 'Free-fall Bradford City' as our alarming decline becomes ever more topical.
PP deservedly took the plaudits last season - our season was amazing but he hasn't followed up well. His recruitment has been poor and too often he has been outsmarted tactically.
At the moment, it is difficult to see where a win will come from. It's going to be a difficult journey and I just hope and pray that we get a few breaks before our position becomes irretrievable.
I understand those who are suggesting that Parky be replaced but I don't see that happening. The board have said that he is the man to take us into the Championship....
Well, last night at Carlisle, the Championship seemed a very long way off and both teams on show looked as though they belonged in a lower division.
Jimmy Greaves used to say that football was a 'funny old game'.....what's happening to Bradford City is not funny....watching them last night was painful..
Like every other supporter, I want us to snap out of this awful run....I'm worried but still full of hope.
Come on Parky...you and every player need to be ready to scrap...like Jones...he needs help....he has self belief in abundance...time for the talking to stop and for you and your players to start delivering on the pitch. The support is there every week - rain or shine - make them proud!........but please be quick!
How can we be in freefall, we're 13th and haven't moved either up or down more than one place for weeks. We've lost 9 games all season, how does that equate to a team in freefall. What's said nationally about Bradford City doesn't matter one jot if it based on moving one place in the league.
Fair point. We have maintained our position with the help of other results as we have struggled but in spite of our league position, the gap between us and the relegation place is getting closer and unless we stop the slide pretty soon we will be in an almighty dog fight at the bottom and 13th place will look a long way off.
I'm not bothered about what is said nationally about us being in free-fall either, but I am bothered about the fact that we have won only once in the past four months or so and I think the free-fall comments relate to that particular statistic as opposed to our league position. No matter how anybody wants to dress it up, we are in decline, a fact that was all too evident at Carlisle last night. Like all supporters, I want us to do better and I am concerned at our inabilities to win games. Hopefully, things will get better.....huge effort required...

I'd say stick with it Phil, believe in yourself and our team - you are not a bad manager. My view is that we need a settled management and PP will make progress despite set backs.
We do have to remember its the players who score/concede goals no matter what instructions. Cut out the mistakes and we'll win a lot more than we lose that's the nature of the league we are in. But fans shouldn't make the players afraid to take risks through over critical assessment and its the same for the management. My preference is to see partnerships on the pitch, playing in triangles, give and go, but I also hate shirt pulling and diving so I realise I will not get my own way.
But we all need to stick together to be stronger at this time

You make a great deal of sense But a time does come when changes have to be made A few more games may be OK but not many one must not leave it to late so nothing can be done Keep Supporting
I understand.
But to stick together would mean till the last game of the season come what may. And if the unthinkable did happen, I'd stay with the current management until they proved they couldn't take the 4th by storm.
And before people accuse me of being a loser I want my team in the Championship challenging at the top and beyond.
But I understand others have their opinion and in contrast to many on here find views different to mine a healthy debate.
So IMO stability is the basis of progress. PP has proved successful, knows the business and despite the current run has the ability to win matches. He NEEDS encouragement - just as players, and he has my support

Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.

No .....they have not given up, there confidence is low, there's a difference. We wont go down, teams don't go down that continually come back from goals down, that shows the determination in the players. Parkinson has a great work ethic and that is instilled into the squad, a little luck wouldn't go a miss and I believe with that work ethic BCFC will eventually make their own.
WORK ETHIC???...They don't know what they are doing...ITS A SHAMBLES....For Goodness sake OPEN YOUR EYES!.
A bit like you?
Well at least you now agree!
You were no doubt lapping it up at Wembley "supporting" the players you now categorise as Pub players. Its pathetic frankly.

In no way is sacking PP the right option! It has to be remembered that we have brought in a significant amount of players in January and these players need time to adjust to the team and get to know their teammates.

I think that we are missing Meredith badly and need the balance that he brings to the team. Staying in this league whichever way it comes about should be viewed as a success for a newly promoted team but we have to make sure that we start winning a few games to stop the teams below dragging us into trouble!
Yes I totally agree, but just remember Parky seems to think that. by playing his favourite players week in week out he is going to get results , he stated that we have the quality to get back in to games when going behind like the Sheffield game and Sat game against Crewe, what he should be looking at is a decent goalkeeper we have had 2 on loan goalkeepers and they will spend every sat on the bench why!!!

If Parky went on to win the Champions League with us and then got sacked after a poor run of form you'd still say 'See, I told you he was cr@p'
You've told yourself from day 1 that PP was no good and there is absolutely nothing that will shake you from that mindset.
You were totally absent on here during the 'good times' last season and now we are struggling you're here to tell us that you were right all along! Jog on c0ck shine.
Playing hell with Shaun is doing no good.He has some valid points as you yourself have. But let us look at the facts 1 win in 21 games. Prolific Goal Scorer who has not done so in 4 games indeed does not look like doing so it is a long time since he scored many goals Manager now says I Have done all i can. Conclusion TIME FOR CHANGE if you can do no more on your own say so surely things cannot remain has they are
Perhaps if you actually took off your blinkers which only allows you to see what you want to see.

Phil Parkinson actually said - “It’s really frustrating. We just need a break at the moment and I’m trying every way I can to find a solution to the run we’ve been on.”

HE DID NOT SAY HE HAS DONE ALL HE CAN. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE.
He is still giving everything and trying everything to stop this bad run - EVERYONE connected to the club should be doing the same, and for us that is to support.

Some of you lot really have no idea and are sucked in by the short termism of the premier league and Championship manager.

Welcome to the real world, we have progressed to a higher level thanks to fantastic work from everyone connected to the club last season, being promoted gives no right to then progress again, we have a similar budget, so there for were most likely to struggle a bit with the step up in class. Once we get through this season, it is then time to build on what we have learnt from this season.

THAT IS WHAT IS CALLED BEING A REALIST SEAN!

CTID
Phil is quoted in the Sun i have done all i can However i have always backed him and always said he is a ood manager but surely now he needs to do something quickly or fall on his sword
The day I believe a quote in the Sun to be wholly accurate is the day I give up.......

Parkinson has to go.
All the people on here harping on about what he did in the past by getting us promoted and to a cup final need a reality check.
We do not live in the PAST and can not live off past glories.
The future with Parkinson is relegation.
Geoff Hurst scored a hat trick in the world cup final but you would not take him in the England squad to Brazil would you!!!
He gave us good times but is clearly out of his depth now.
Why do these people bury their heads in the sand and try ignore the inevitable , wake up and get rid quickly.
Get real and get him out!!!!

Pablo says...

The conjecture on PP's future is academic. PP and his backroom staff have over two years left on their contracts and, as any incoming manager would want to bring in his own staff, the severance costs would be prohibitive.

I agree the one dimensional long ball tactic has been flogged to death and, in the absence of the pace of Nahki, it's now doomed to failure anyway. PP will now understand tactics must change.

As I've previously posted, what really concerns me is the lack of firepower off the bench, if we're chasing a game. The Hanson/McLean pairing isn't gelling and we've no alternative in reserve.

Like it or not, we are where we are. PP and the team are in a hole but calling for the managers head and getting on the players backs will achieve nothing.

Human instinct is to help anyone in trouble, so the fans have it in their own hands to play their part in ensuring we maintain our League 1 status.

Self belief is the key and there seems to plenty of it about in all the pre-match chat but there is none on the field apart from Jonesy and Darby who consistently play well. Reach is also working hard but last night we lost to a very poor team and parts of the game were pitiful to watch.
The support was good but even the most positive of us who will continue to support our team through thick and thin cannot ignore the fact that we are heading for an almighty battle against relegation. Teams lower in the table have beaten or held us in games that had been regarded as 3 pointers.
Nationally, we are being tagged 'Free-fall Bradford City' as our alarming decline becomes ever more topical.
PP deservedly took the plaudits last season - our season was amazing but he hasn't followed up well. His recruitment has been poor and too often he has been outsmarted tactically.
At the moment, it is difficult to see where a win will come from. It's going to be a difficult journey and I just hope and pray that we get a few breaks before our position becomes irretrievable.
I understand those who are suggesting that Parky be replaced but I don't see that happening. The board have said that he is the man to take us into the Championship....
Well, last night at Carlisle, the Championship seemed a very long way off and both teams on show looked as though they belonged in a lower division.
Jimmy Greaves used to say that football was a 'funny old game'.....what's happening to Bradford City is not funny....watching them last night was painful..
Like every other supporter, I want us to snap out of this awful run....I'm worried but still full of hope.
Come on Parky...you and every player need to be ready to scrap...like Jones...he needs help....he has self belief in abundance...time for the talking to stop and for you and your players to start delivering on the pitch. The support is there every week - rain or shine - make them proud!........but please be quick!
How can we be in freefall, we're 13th and haven't moved either up or down more than one place for weeks. We've lost 9 games all season, how does that equate to a team in freefall. What's said nationally about Bradford City doesn't matter one jot if it based on moving one place in the league.
Fair point. We have maintained our position with the help of other results as we have struggled but in spite of our league position, the gap between us and the relegation place is getting closer and unless we stop the slide pretty soon we will be in an almighty dog fight at the bottom and 13th place will look a long way off.
I'm not bothered about what is said nationally about us being in free-fall either, but I am bothered about the fact that we have won only once in the past four months or so and I think the free-fall comments relate to that particular statistic as opposed to our league position. No matter how anybody wants to dress it up, we are in decline, a fact that was all too evident at Carlisle last night. Like all supporters, I want us to do better and I am concerned at our inabilities to win games. Hopefully, things will get better.....huge effort required...
We are where we are, there is absolutely no reason why this group of players can't dig themselves out of the poor run we are in, a couple of wins and the free falling stuff will be consigned to the national dustbin. No ones dressing anything up, then again whats the point of flapping around in a panic, that would relegate the club. If the vast majority of BCFC fans keep calm and continue to back the team, then the club has every chance to collect the points needed to keep it safe, if the fans do the opposite then freefalling could end up more than a Tom Petty song.

You're right...we are where we are and I agree a couple of wins would change the picture immensely and no one would be happier than me if that were to happen.
I also think the vast majority of fans will continue to back the team like they have all season. Like you and me they will also express their opinions, most of them will make valid points and all of them will be concerned at our present situation.
I understand that you listened to last night's game on the radio, which is testament to your support for the team. I honestly believe that had you been with me at Brunton Park and witnessed our defeat to a very poor team, you might better understand the concerns I have expressed.
We may express ourselves differently but we want the same things for our team and I respect your views....like you said...we are where we are (but hopefully not for much longer).
With regards to Tom Petty....we need a recognised left back....what do you think?

A couple of wins will change things ! Please tell me where these wins are going to come from ? Every team in this league now knows how we play and also know we do NOT have a plan B ie different way of playing ! Fact Parky is well out of his depth and we need a change now or we will go down .
Every team now fighting to stay up which means we are in great danger !

Yes I totally agree, but just remember Parky seems to think that. by playing his favourite players week in week out he is going to get results , he stated that we have the quality to get back in to games when going behind like the Sheffield game and Sat game against Crewe, what he should be looking at is a decent goalkeeper we have had 2 on loan goalkeepers and they will spend every sat on the bench why!!!
Because in training and practice matches, Jon McLaughlin is getting to balls that they have not been reaching. That's how all players get selected.

Right now it is difficult to see where our next win will come from but like most supporters I am hoping that we can turn a corner. There has been some unpredictable results in our league - look at Leyton Orient losing at home to Bristol City last night.....you never know...just got to keep supporting and hoping for a change for the better.
I understand the points you make but I don't think the board will replace the manager. After last season's success, I think they will stick with him.
Let's hope for better things soon....

Listened to the game and once again we've had enough ball to have got a point out of the game but we did seem to struggle to create chances. Also it was as plain as the nose on my face that as soon as Hanson went off we had no cutting edge whatsoever. Adam Reach seemed to have another excellent game.

Well I went to the game!......Carlisle are SHOCKING!...and they beat us!.
You talk of "Self Belief"...ITS THE PLAYERS who need that.....and they don't have it!.
We have 4 players who have quality IMO, THATS IT!..Davies, Jones, Reach, Hanson (he had a shocker last night!) the rest are either on shocking form or Pub players.
So I am not sure "HOW" you believe we are too good to go down??
Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.
THE POINT IS...Its not YOU or ME that's giving up!....Its the players!....Yes I am one of the Negatrons on this site....Or as I like to call it, REALIST!.....On the last couple of games (Remember Carlisle are DIRE!) we are going DOWN!
Make no mistake!
No .....they have not given up, there confidence is low, there's a difference. We wont go down, teams don't go down that continually come back from goals down, that shows the determination in the players. Parkinson has a great work ethic and that is instilled into the squad, a little luck wouldn't go a miss and I believe with that work ethic BCFC will eventually make their own.
WORK ETHIC???...They don't know what they are doing...ITS A SHAMBLES....For Goodness sake OPEN YOUR EYES!.
A bit like you?
Well at least you now agree!
That you don't know what you're doing, your posts are a shambles and are probably typed with eyes shut, yes I have to agree Shaun!!
That your posts are deluded, and you are typing with your "head in the sand"!.....Over to you!

How can we be in freefall, we're 13th and haven't moved either up or down more than one place for weeks. We've lost 9 games all season, how does that equate to a team in freefall. What's said nationally about Bradford City doesn't matter one jot if it based on moving one place in the league.
Fair point. We have maintained our position with the help of other results as we have struggled but in spite of our league position, the gap between us and the relegation place is getting closer and unless we stop the slide pretty soon we will be in an almighty dog fight at the bottom and 13th place will look a long way off.

So its fair to say we are "ankle deep" in the brown stuff, I for one have the "Hometown Blues", and you have been "Fouled again" by Parkys lack of tactics.........Bein

Yes I totally agree, but just remember Parky seems to think that. by playing his favourite players week in week out he is going to get results , he stated that we have the quality to get back in to games when going behind like the Sheffield game and Sat game against Crewe, what he should be looking at is a decent goalkeeper we have had 2 on loan goalkeepers and they will spend every sat on the bench why!!!
Because in training and practice matches, Jon McLaughlin is getting to balls that they have not been reaching. That's how all players get selected.
Shame he can't do it on match days then.

Totally agree with you. I think Jonny Mac needs a decent back up.
Why does he play week in week out?
Think sometimes he struggles in this league.
Don't get me started on strikers.
I still think parky should just keep his job but what the hell has he done to our upfront option???
We have Gray who I have been told earns over 3 grand a week and now this donkey Maclean who god knows how much we bought him for and what salary he is on but sources say he is the clubs top earner.
We look really week up front and I bet our striker wage bill is loads more than teams up there like Rotherham and orient.
Bad choices Phil which could cost u your job and even our league status.
No goals means no wins. We cannot expect Hanson to score every week as he is just not that type of player. Also we do not score enough from elsewhere so statistically if changes are not made we are Doomed now Wells has gone and even he is now rubbish at Huddersfield.

I think that we are missing Meredith badly and need the balance that he brings to the team.

That's how all players get selected.[/p][/quote]Shame he can't do it on match days then.[/p][/quote]Totally agree with you. I think Jonny Mac needs a decent back up. Why does he play week in week out? Think sometimes he struggles in this league. Don't get me started on strikers. I still think parky should just keep his job but what the hell has he done to our upfront option??? We have Gray who I have been told earns over 3 grand a week and now this donkey Maclean who god knows how much we bought him for and what salary he is on but sources say he is the clubs top earner.

This season was always likely to be about cementing our place in league one. Another play off finish would have been great but is not to be. I still think we will stay up but probably will have a closer finish than hoped for.

The only good thing that happened last night was Leeds lost too!

We really do need a Goalie who can "Command" his Area and "Shout Out" commands etc when danger threatens.
Mac is an excellent "Shotstopper" but I think the back four were
more comfortable with The Duke!

I watched Duke on Tuesday night at Torquay. Whilst he was reasonable, he will not produce the spectacular save that McLaughlin is capable of. In fact, he almost dropped a real clanger when the ball went through his legs in the last moments of the watch.

Shot stopping is only half the story as you are no doubt aware.

I look at the various negative comments made. The common theme is scapegoating; whether it be McLaughlin, McLean, Hanson, Parkinson or Gray (list not exhaustive).

For me, it is nothing other than narcissism / megalomania. In better times, too many were happy to sit back and soak up the adulation. A cheery 'Midland Road' sing song was just the ticket.

Now that points are difficult to come by, it is easier to deflect blame than sit down and think things through. It is a lack of emotional intelligence as is seen in the general standard of comment on here.

People have mentioned that last season should be forgotten. However, getting to a cup final and getting promoted via seventh place means that certain people believe there is a given right to success.

OK. I accept that. I will also add, in fact, that Duke was shouting continuously as his players on Tuesday night.

It is down to preference. I always favoured McLaughlin but also respect Duke for his ability.

My problem (as you may have gathered!) is with the targeting of individuals at the moment.

I understand that you listened to last night's game on the radio, which is testament to your support for the team. I honestly believe that had you been with me at Brunton Park and witnessed our defeat to a very poor team, you might better understand the concerns I have expressed.
We may express ourselves differently but we want the same things for our team and I respect your views....like you said...we are where we are (but hopefully not for much longer).
With regards to Tom Petty....we need a recognised left back....what do you think?
i've heard Tom plays a mean guitar, he could serenade the moaners while the rest of us get behind the team.

Regarding the radio, I gave the away trips up a long time ago, but have been to one or two in my years supporting BCFC. ;-) I can form an opinion about the overall position of the club without going to Carlisle or any other away games.

Because I never give up or give in, we're 13th not 23rd in the league, a couple of wins and it's a different scenario. You are well known on this site, need I say more. I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.

Make no mistake!
No .....they have not given up, there confidence is low, there's a difference. We wont go down, teams don't go down that continually come back from goals down, that shows the determination in the players. Parkinson has a great work ethic and that is instilled into the squad, a little luck wouldn't go a miss and I believe with that work ethic BCFC will eventually make their own.

Is this the same Shaun who wanted PP sacked 18 months ago; repeatedly referred to him as Deadbeat and then went missing from these pages between Feb and August.

If Shaun had gotten his way, PP would never have taken us to Wembley or gotten us promoted as you would have sacked him. I guess PP proved that you actually have no clue about anything. You are desperate to be proven right about PP as you never wanted him to succeed. If he couldn't manage a football club then last season would not have happened. If he was a good manager in May why is he not a good manager in February. You won't respond though will you Shaun; you will just try and deflect. Perhaps you would like to confirm that McCall and Taylor are rubbish as football managers again.

I'm not impressed, I'll leave it at that.[/p][/quote]THE POINT IS...Its not YOU or ME that's giving up!....Its the players!....Yes I am one of the Negatrons on this site....Or as I like to call it, REALIST!.....On the last couple of games (Remember Carlisle are DIRE!) we are going DOWN! Make no mistake![/p][/quote]No .....they have not given up, there confidence is low, there's a difference. We wont go down, teams don't go down that continually come back from goals down, that shows the determination in the players. Parkinson has a great work ethic and that is instilled into the squad, a little luck wouldn't go a miss and I believe with that work ethic BCFC will eventually make their own.[/p][/quote]WORK ETHIC???...They don't know what they are doing...ITS A SHAMBLES....For Goodness sake OPEN YOUR EYES!.[/p][/quote]A bit like you?[/p][/quote]Well at least you now agree![/p][/quote]That you don't know what you're doing, your posts are a shambles and are probably typed with eyes shut, yes I have to agree Shaun!![/p][/quote]That your posts are deluded, and you are typing with your "head in the sand"!.....Over to you![/p][/quote]I'm crushed!!!!! Over to you!!!![/p][/quote]Is this the same Shaun who wanted PP sacked 18 months ago; repeatedly referred to him as Deadbeat and then went missing from these pages between Feb and August. If Shaun had gotten his way, PP would never have taken us to Wembley or gotten us promoted as you would have sacked him. I guess PP proved that you actually have no clue about anything. You are desperate to be proven right about PP as you never wanted him to succeed. If he couldn't manage a football club then last season would not have happened. If he was a good manager in May why is he not a good manager in February. You won't respond though will you Shaun; you will just try and deflect. Perhaps you would like to confirm that McCall and Taylor are rubbish as football managers again.[/p][/quote]Ignore the nasty man. Simples. Michael Clayton

We really do need a Goalie who can "Command" his Area and "Shout Out" commands etc when danger threatens. Mac is an excellent "Shotstopper" but I think the back four were more comfortable with The Duke!
I watched Duke on Tuesday night at Torquay. Whilst he was reasonable, he will not produce the spectacular save that McLaughlin is capable of. In fact, he almost dropped a real clanger when the ball went through his legs in the last moments of the watch.
I don't think the comparisons should be made between Duke and McLaughlin
we just need to look at how McLaughlin performs which over the past month have been abysmal, yes he has had his moment on shot stopping but the most worrying thing is he is not vocal enough and he certainly can't command his 6yd box let alone the pen area and in my opinion Parky should at least give the on loan goalkeeper from Sheffield We'd a start.

I have just spent a lot of time reading through the comments left about this post. Personal bickering may bring a laugh but the point is the results are not there, we may not be losing games but every draw means lost points. As usual lets blame the manager or the goalkeeper, but there are eleven players on the field and it is down to the whole team to perform once they cross the white line. People are always quick to live on the past and moan when the success is not there. Look what happened in the Richmond era and the position the club was left in. The present board have stabilised the club and will not put the club in that position again by paying off contracts to make changes under fan pressure. Wells has gone and is now part of the clubs history. It is time to get behind everyone at the club, show support and fight this together.
