Needed a third in the first part of the second half for 3-1 to kill the game...Wells is being sorely missed at present. ..as was Davies after gonig off...but the club need to work very hard with Aaron McLean...he needs to be the man to lead us on occasions like this.and we look to him for the contribution seen from Wells and also Vucik at Rotherham. No that' how a newly promoted side deals with a struggling team at home...6-0
.anyone know a good team of sports psychologists? Think we need a bit of that..esp Aaron

Shocking...just shocking. Letting Freeman have two clear shots on goal was just plain suicide. Before you start I was at the game sat behind Parkinson.

The guy just does not have a clue about tactics and players. Instead of shutting up shop and getting a 2-2 result. Put on Dolan and make the mid tighter as Freeman was giving us the run around. Instead he puts on Gray and Yeates who do nothing for the team.

Maclean tries too hard - he really should have had a goal- big Jim Hanson got so many flickons - yet Mclean does not know how to read it.

Hats off to Adam Reach - he reminds me of Chris Waddle! The lads a good player. I hope Boro don't recall him. I hear he maybe out of contract in the summer. Come on City snap him up.

We seem to lack motivation and/or concentration against the lower clubs. Look at our record against the bottom teams -it can't be a coincidence. We can do it when we are all focused as against MK and PV but today's result was pretty predicable unfortunately. I agree sports psychologists required!

Bottom of the league is always our bogey team, doesn't matter who it is.
Again defensively poor and never closed down with Darby being the exception, hope Davies is ok though and will be back for Brentford.
3rd was a cracker though but Doyle shouldn't be giving that much room to get a shot away like that in the first place and Johnny Mac shouldn't be getting beaten from a shot that far out either.
Just hope this is a blip and can go get something from Brentford and fingers crossed 9 points from the 3 after. :)

Cityman23 says...

So,.three wins in a row was just beyond the Bantams and they ended up once again, slipping up against the weakest side in the league at home!

Certainly when City took the lead early on there was no indication of how this game would later play out. But, gradually the southern side began to feel their way into the match and eventually were pressing hard. The equaliser was a disappointment but not totally out of the blue and by now a few Stevenage players were beginning to show some (worringly) good touches. That City had the 2-1 lead going into half time did not make most fans feel the claret/amber side were home/dry.

After half time, if anything it was Stevenage who looked likelier and they equalised to much disgust from the stands. Yet it WAS a good goal. And the third when it came seemed so inevitable by then that the howls of anger had faded away to be replaced by mainly stunned silence!
Questions like 'why' and 'how' were beginning questions that supporters discussed as they left Valley Parade.

Andrew Davies was subbed early, injured, he being perhaps at fault during the first goal. To be fair, he's been out for a long time and perhaps we just mistakingly assumed he could come straight back in and carry on where he left off, producing good performance after performance, game on game.

Jonny Mac had a decent enough game and produced some good saves. The defence look 'vulnerable' at times and the left back position needs ...well a left footed back!

I've written this two/three times but it's still true. The Hanson/McLean partnership isn't working. 'AMc' plays too deep and doesn't link with 'JH' though James does keep turning in decent performances on his own as best he can. He can't be our sole striker though. Aaron McLean was subbed again and Andy Gray came on. Both Gray and sub Yeates made no difference whatsoever.

Cit ymust keep battling because Stevenage and others below The Bantams certainly are not going to throw in the towel. It's going to get tougher before it gets easier!

Only one person to blame today and that was Parkinson, to let a 1-0 and then 2-1 lead slip away was disgraceful. Nathan Doyle was poor and we didn't compete in midfield, he should have been subbed earlier and an extra midfielder put on to stop Freeman running at the defense. If we hadn't of won then we should have got a draw. Too many teams know how to play us and Parkinson does not change his tactics.

Oh Dear to sum up today our over payed goal scorer ones again failed to scored indeed he missed good chances to do so and not for the first time how many more games does he need to start producing. Defence had a bad day after Davis went off. The Bottom team have much more of the ball than City to say it was a bad day at the office would be correct lets us hope it is not repeated to often We must get more out of Maclean at the moment he looks a poor bargain indeed he looks way past his best ( Hope i am wrong) but so far there is no return. and the whole intention was to get a GOAL SCORER. City will not go down and we should be thankful for that but maybe we should take a leaf out of Rotherhams book they spent a bit and look at the result Keep up the support

We were beaten by the better team. Stevenage came to make a game of it and looked anything but a bottom of the table side. I never felt comfortable that we'd win the game. Only Darby, Reach and Hanson earned their money today. Not for the first time, Doyle was anonymous. How is PP going to assess Dolan and Atkinson as potential permanent signings when he won't play them? For me, Doyle has had plenty of opportunities and it's now time to try someone else, with next season in mind.

I agree with the poster above that McLean plays too deep and shows no indication of being the prolific goalscorer we thought we'd signed. I just hope he's not going to be another expensive millstone round our neck.

Again defensively poor and never closed down with Darby being the exception, hope Davies is ok though and will be back for Brentford.
3rd was a cracker though but Doyle shouldn't be giving that much room to get a shot away like that in the first place and Johnny Mac shouldn't be getting beaten from a shot that far out either.
Just hope this is a blip and can go get something from Brentford and fingers crossed 9 points from the 3 after. :)
its nothing to do with bogey teams ,end of the day we just arnt good enough ,we have a manager who seems to want our team to play long ball up in the air totally missing midfield ,are defence is a discrace when davis is not playing ,this does not include darby great defender ,cant understand why are so called defenders always stand off opposing teams strikers giving them all the time in world to shoot ,then clown parky saying they were great strikes he needs to tell them to close down faster ,as for are keeper imo he tends to dive far to lateso many teams have scored from way out against him he never seems alert that teams shoot ,i like him but think we need another keeper to push him ,fingers crossed davis is ok ,i fear for us if not
That's basically everything I've just said.
Stevenage is done now.
Need to work on improving for the next game now so Brentford don't tear us apart and get revenge on us for pounding them at our place

Mr Cooper , ex City coach now with Hartlepool seems to be doing a good job there. when he took over for a few games didn't someone comment that we played football like Arsenal? If this is so then we are obviously capable , just need he "now coach" to realise that fact.

At least PP admitted that we were poor. Did anyone hear the the report by those pair of imbeciles on the pulse? You would have thought it was Barcelona v Madrid. Bring back radio Leeds.

Sorry but McClean absolute garbage.
What a waste of money that guy is.
This makes me laugh but would rather have Gray on than him.
Another appalling signing by the manger who is treading on thin Ice at the moment.
Davis great player but sick note far too often.
Clearout at end of season if we stay up!
Really think McClean should be dropped as will drag us down.
I knew he was the wrong choice and I know I will get a load of minus for this comment but its the truth.
McClean plays too deep and his positioning to Hanson is way off.
Thank god James knows how to score!

I must admit that I'm sick and tired of our "hoof-it" style. It worked with Nahki but it's not working now.

The players are capable of playing football but PP seems one dimensional. I believe Colin Cooper would have done a good job but he knew his face didn't fit with a certain individual.

Sadly, I'm coming around to the view that PP is not the man to take us forward and the expensive, but misfiring, signing of McLean may well prove to seal his fate, come the summer.

BCFC have always struggled against bottom teams, I remember a few years back when Taylor was manager BCFC struggled to beat Stockport when they had been reduced to 9 players, Evans scored in the last minute If I remember correctly to win the game for BCFC 3-2, Stockport were bottom of the 2nd division at the time. So nothing new about this type of BCFC performance against bottom clubs, they have happened as long as I've been supporting the club. I believe 6 points out of the last three games is a good return, yes 9 would have been immense but BCFC have to dust themselves down and go again against Brentford then Colchester.

Our problem, imo is that we are set up so defensively and expect to soak up pressure and score on the break that when we come up a team that want to do the same we are screwed.

I tend to think it's more a mentality thing as BCFC have been under performing against bottom clubs for as long as I can remember. This division is very very competitive as Stevenage have just proved . Let's be honest, Davies stays on the pitch and BCFC more than likely win or draw, unfortunately he seems pivotal to our defence. Hopefully he's not out for long.

I think we are attacking but our central midfield don't get forward as we play two out and out wide men. I'd have got Dean Furman in in January to add more quality to our central midfield options.

Stevenage won in midweek also so were not bottom of the table today but 22nd. Saying that the best team won so no complaints from me on that score. Juat glad I sit in the upper kop otherwise I would get whiplash watching city at the moment. Have too agree we have to have an alternative style as this one no longer works and at times is very embarrassing. Can see a massive vlear out in the summer so we need to give parky the time to build a new squad. By Christmas we should start to see where we going

BCFC have always struggled against bottom teams, I remember a few years back when Taylor was manager BCFC struggled to beat Stockport when they had been reduced to 9 players, Evans scored in the last minute If I remember correctly to win the game for BCFC 3-2, Stockport were bottom of the 2nd division at the time. So nothing new about this type of BCFC performance against bottom clubs, they have happened as long as I've been supporting the club. I believe 6 points out of the last three games is a good return, yes 9 would have been immense but BCFC have to dust themselves down and go again against Brentford then Colchester.
Our problem, imo is that we are set up so defensively and expect to soak up pressure and score on the break that when we come up a team that want to do the same we are screwed.
I tend to think it's more a mentality thing as BCFC have been under performing against bottom clubs for as long as I can remember. This division is very very competitive as Stevenage have just proved . Let's be honest, Davies stays on the pitch and BCFC more than likely win or draw, unfortunately he seems pivotal to our defence. Hopefully he's not out for long.

I think we are attacking but our central midfield don't get forward as we play two out and out wide men. I'd have got Dean Furman in in January to add more quality to our central midfield options.
Fair point.

Just read some numpty on another site having a pop at McHugh, he's a young kid playing out of position trying to do a job for the team. I wonder if the same braincell deficient was complaining when McHugh rose tall and nodded in the winner against Port Vale..all this flapping about makes me laugh...I fancy these same panic stricken folk were saying BCFC had no chance of picking up six points from the last three games.

You're right, Reach's goal was a top class volley and several of his other efforts were above Lge One level. Shame his performance faded in to the background set against this game/result.
u say he faded but was he given the ball? cant play without the football!!!!
You've misunderstood my words. I meant, no matter how good his personal performance-and he was excellent in the 1st half-his showing faded in to the background at the conclusion of the match as everyone focussed on the defeat to a low-placed team and the manner of that defeat overall. ie we won't recall much about Adam Reach's brilliance because it is dwarfed by everything else that took place!

Bottom of the league is always our bogey team, doesn't matter who it is.
Again defensively poor and never closed down with Darby being the exception, hope Davies is ok though and will be back for Brentford.
3rd was a cracker though but Doyle shouldn't be giving that much room to get a shot away like that in the first place and Johnny Mac shouldn't be getting beaten from a shot that far out either.
Just hope this is a blip and can go get something from Brentford and fingers crossed 9 points from the 3 after. :)
Johnny Mac gets beat on numerious occasions with 40yds plus but the press say it is wonderfull strike sorry it's a howler again by JMc. Peterborough a perfect example JMc had not got a clue untill the ball was in the back of the net from 45yds, I am not putting all the blame on JMc but he needs to get back to his roots football at Harrogate town. And let's get a decent goalkeeper in Doyle is another player that just seems to think 10min out of 90min is acceptable to get his wages Parky needs to get a grip because in reality out of the 3home games only the Port Vale warranted 3points.

So,.three wins in a row was just beyond the Bantams and they ended up once again, slipping up against the weakest side in the league at home!

Certainly when City took the lead early on there was no indication of how this game would later play out. But, gradually the southern side began to feel their way into the match and eventually were pressing hard. The equaliser was a disappointment but not totally out of the blue and by now a few Stevenage players were beginning to show some (worringly) good touches. That City had the 2-1 lead going into half time did not make most fans feel the claret/amber side were home/dry.

After half time, if anything it was Stevenage who looked likelier and they equalised to much disgust from the stands. Yet it WAS a good goal. And the third when it came seemed so inevitable by then that the howls of anger had faded away to be replaced by mainly stunned silence!
Questions like 'why' and 'how' were beginning questions that supporters discussed as they left Valley Parade.

Andrew Davies was subbed early, injured, he being perhaps at fault during the first goal. To be fair, he's been out for a long time and perhaps we just mistakingly assumed he could come straight back in and carry on where he left off, producing good performance after performance, game on game.

Jonny Mac had a decent enough game and produced some good saves. The defence look 'vulnerable' at times and the left back position needs ...well a left footed back!

I've written this two/three times but it's still true. The Hanson/McLean partnership isn't working. 'AMc' plays too deep and doesn't link with 'JH' though James does keep turning in decent performances on his own as best he can. He can't be our sole striker though. Aaron McLean was subbed again and Andy Gray came on. Both Gray and sub Yeates made no difference whatsoever.

Cit ymust keep battling because Stevenage and others below The Bantams certainly are not going to throw in the towel. It's going to get tougher before it gets easier!
So I get two minuses whilst the person below me gets 5 plusses for blaming Parkinson! Oh well , it's better than the 43 minuses I got last week for saying much the same !! I'm improving...perhaps next week..it'll be plusses!!
Nah, I'd worry if my opinions began to be popular. Far better to be in the minority...then you know you're on to something!!

Certainly wasn't a surprise that City have lost to the bottom side as they have done it for as long as I can remember, and while I thought Stevenage looked a decent side; despite what we were saying to the press, I think we took them too lightly; we were at least a yard off the pace for much of the game.

It was a terrible decision by the linesman for the 3rd goal though, it was never a foul, and he has ended up costing us a point. It's like they feel they have to make a major decision to justly their existence.

Thought it was crying out for a change midway through the 2nd half. Doyle was virtually anonymous all game, and I would've brought on Dolan, but we seemed happy to protect what we had got against a team bottom of the table.

I'd also question McLaughlin's part in the 1st two goals. He was probably unsighted somewhat for the 1st, but it was hardly a venomous shot, and he seemed to get down slowly. The second, while it was a great strike, it was nowhere near the top corner, and he seemed totally flat footed.

Only 6 points to the bottom 4 now, and while I am sure we will be ok, our game is about commitment and desire; when we drop slightly below those levels like we did today, when are we gonna learn that we are not a good enough side to win the game.

I must admit that I'm sick and tired of our "hoof-it" style. It worked with Nahki but it's not working now.

The players are capable of playing football but PP seems one dimensional. I believe Colin Cooper would have done a good job but he knew his face didn't fit with a certain individual.

Sadly, I'm coming around to the view that PP is not the man to take us forward and the expensive, but misfiring, signing of McLean may well prove to seal his fate, come the summer.
I'm with you Pablo. Win lose or draw the way we play is God awful to watch. I said on another thread that if you nullify Reach and Hanson we offer nothing and how easy was it for the worst team in the division to do just that? Comprehensively outplayed from start to finish by the worst team in the league who dominated possession and could quite easily have scored five or six is embarrassing to say the least. The sad thing is while Parkinson and Hanson are here things aren't going to change. We'll bypass midfield and hit (hoof) diagonals to Hanson and hope the poor sap playing alongside him can perform miracles while feeding off scraps. That said I've no doubt beating the odd side that can't cope with our aerial bombardment will satisfy the easily pleased masses.

Individually, Doyle's a defensive midfield player that gets done by anyone with movement and a modicum of pace and offers very little protection for the back four and Thompson has two good moments a game if we're lucky. That's half our midfield offering jack. If Reach is double teamed that leaves the old warhorse to charge about and do the work of four men. Is it any wonder that we're second best every week?

Here's my take on the game;
Stevenage were the biggest 'hoofers' ever at VP, difference was they won all the flick ons and the second balls. We didn't deal with it, especially after Davies went off. Their first goal was as a result of Davies slipping, and injuring himself. Their second was because Bates backed off after a chased down flick on and allowed the guy to shoot. For the third, I personally thought the linesman 'bottled' it because if it was a foul it should have been a penalty, and that was another chased down flick on, it was all they did all day but they did it well. What Freeman did was get forward quickly from midfield when the up and unders were bombed forward, our midfield was, is, static. They were lucky to get two such good strikes in one game.

Don't agree they had long periods of possession and passed the ball well. In fact the movement if their players was far superior to ours. Darby was given aytorrid time although as usual stood up and did well. We looked like the bottom of the table side and they came to win. No time wasting from these guys even at 2 each they were always looking to win. Totally deserved it as well as we deserved nothing from that performance

We didn't deal with it, especially after Davies went off. Their first goal was as a result of Davies slipping, and injuring himself. Their second was because Bates backed off after a chased down flick on and allowed the guy to shoot. For the third, I personally thought the linesman 'bottled' it because if it was a foul it should have been a penalty, and that was another chased down flick on, it was all they did all day but they did it well. What Freeman did was get forward quickly from midfield when the up and unders were bombed forward, our midfield was, is, static. They were lucky to get two such good strikes in one game.[/p][/quote]Don't agree they had long periods of possession and passed the ball well. In fact the movement if their players was far superior to ours. Darby was given aytorrid time although as usual stood up and did well.

a lot of get rid of PP postings and none refuting those suggestions. Mind you Skipton library is not open yet is it?

I just wonder why we brought in the like of Dolan and Atkinson if they are just going to sit on the bench? Surely a waste of time, money an effort if PP is simply saying hey are not better than those who have played all season.

Left back:McHugh is not but the lad is a great prospect at centre half so please don't ruin him!

D not know what to make of Mclean: has he signed a nice long contract and is now in a comfort zone.Time for him to be dropped and play a 4-5-1 both wide men turning it into 4-3-3 hen the need arises. This system requires a passing game but can PP produce that again.?

Why was this problem area never addressed PP

I must admit that I'm sick and tired of our "hoof-it" style. It worked with Nahki but it's not working now.

The players are capable of playing football but PP seems one dimensional. I believe Colin Cooper would have done a good job but he knew his face didn't fit with a certain individual.

Sadly, I'm coming around to the view that PP is not the man to take us forward and the expensive, but misfiring, signing of McLean may well prove to seal his fate, come the summer.
I'm with you Pablo. Win lose or draw the way we play is God awful to watch. I said on another thread that if you nullify Reach and Hanson we offer nothing and how easy was it for the worst team in the division to do just that? Comprehensively outplayed from start to finish by the worst team in the league who dominated possession and could quite easily have scored five or six is embarrassing to say the least. The sad thing is while Parkinson and Hanson are here things aren't going to change. We'll bypass midfield and hit (hoof) diagonals to Hanson and hope the poor sap playing alongside him can perform miracles while feeding off scraps. That said I've no doubt beating the odd side that can't cope with our aerial bombardment will satisfy the easily pleased masses.

Individually, Doyle's a defensive midfield player that gets done by anyone with movement and a modicum of pace and offers very little protection for the back four and Thompson has two good moments a game if we're lucky. That's half our midfield offering jack. If Reach is double teamed that leaves the old warhorse to charge about and do the work of four men. Is it any wonder that we're second best every week?
Having read some utter tosh above; you win this weeks prize for numbskull of the week.

"how easy was it to nullify Reach and Hanson"...it was that easy that they both scored.

"is it any wonder that we're second best every week"....er, we won the last two matches.

As for other posters, Why is Doyle geting the blame for their second equaliser when it was Reach who let him run from the right side of midfield? Why is Jon Mac rubbish when he concedes from distance but when City score long-range goals (Reid at Walsall, Reach yesterday etc) they are great strikes.

Blame, blame, blame. That is all we hear when we lose and then we hear nothing from any of you as to why we win games? Doesn't seem to matter who but the hard of thinking are always desperate for a scapegoat. To cap it all there is never ANY credit given to the opposition who yesterday played their bottoms off.

What a bunch of pathetic, whinging, low-lifes you lot are. Sing when we're winning, you only sing when you're winning. Teams win and teams lose "together"...what a shame that some of you are part of my team...you are not fit to wear the shirt. A club is for life, not just for Wembley.

Spot on KM as usual. Anyone would think we'd lost three in a row. I remember a certain post say we needed 7 points from our next three games, well we got 6, a good return in my view, personally I thought we'd get 5 tops. Anyone who's supported BCFC for any length of time will not be surprised by our great club losing to a team at or near the bottom, it's happened since I was a kid. Some of the knee jerk reaction makes me laugh, I've heard it all before, there is no panic nor should there be, BCFC are reasonably placed and are good enough to acquire the points needed to be safely ensconsed in midtable come May.

McClean plays too deep and his positioning to Hanson is way off.
Thank god James knows how to score!
Comments like this about Mclean are the reason several other strikers did not want to come to Valley Parade and take over the mantle of Nahki Wells. Mclean is hardly an appalling signing, he's shown some good intelligent play. He and Hanson just need a bit more time to get used to one another. Hanson is playing well himself but he needs to adapt and get used to the fact he's playing with a different style of partner to Wells. Anyone who wanted or expected a Nahki Wells clone who simply slotted in was going to be disappointed.

I must admit that I'm sick and tired of our "hoof-it" style. It worked with Nahki but it's not working now.

The players are capable of playing football but PP seems one dimensional. I believe Colin Cooper would have done a good job but he knew his face didn't fit with a certain individual.

Sadly, I'm coming around to the view that PP is not the man to take us forward and the expensive, but misfiring, signing of McLean may well prove to seal his fate, come the summer.
I'm with you Pablo. Win lose or draw the way we play is God awful to watch. I said on another thread that if you nullify Reach and Hanson we offer nothing and how easy was it for the worst team in the division to do just that? Comprehensively outplayed from start to finish by the worst team in the league who dominated possession and could quite easily have scored five or six is embarrassing to say the least. The sad thing is while Parkinson and Hanson are here things aren't going to change. We'll bypass midfield and hit (hoof) diagonals to Hanson and hope the poor sap playing alongside him can perform miracles while feeding off scraps. That said I've no doubt beating the odd side that can't cope with our aerial bombardment will satisfy the easily pleased masses.

Individually, Doyle's a defensive midfield player that gets done by anyone with movement and a modicum of pace and offers very little protection for the back four and Thompson has two good moments a game if we're lucky. That's half our midfield offering jack. If Reach is double teamed that leaves the old warhorse to charge about and do the work of four men. Is it any wonder that we're second best every week?
Having read some utter tosh above; you win this weeks prize for numbskull of the week.

"how easy was it to nullify Reach and Hanson"...it was that easy that they both scored.

"is it any wonder that we're second best every week"....er, we won the last two matches.

As for other posters, Why is Doyle geting the blame for their second equaliser when it was Reach who let him run from the right side of midfield? Why is Jon Mac rubbish when he concedes from distance but when City score long-range goals (Reid at Walsall, Reach yesterday etc) they are great strikes.

Blame, blame, blame. That is all we hear when we lose and then we hear nothing from any of you as to why we win games? Doesn't seem to matter who but the hard of thinking are always desperate for a scapegoat. To cap it all there is never ANY credit given to the opposition who yesterday played their bottoms off.

What a bunch of pathetic, whinging, low-lifes you lot are. Sing when we're winning, you only sing when you're winning. Teams win and teams lose "together"...what a shame that some of you are part of my team...you are not fit to wear the shirt. A club is for life, not just for Wembley.
Spot on KM as usual. Anyone would think we'd lost three in a row. I remember a certain post say we needed 7 points from our next three games, well we got 6, a good return in my view, personally I thought we'd get 5 tops. Anyone who's supported BCFC for any length of time will not be surprised by our great club losing to a team at or near the bottom, it's happened since I was a kid. Some of the knee jerk reaction makes me laugh, I've heard it all before, there is no panic nor should there be, BCFC are reasonably placed and are good enough to acquire the points needed to be safely ensconsed in midtable come May.
I wholeheartedly agree.
Can only echo KM and statler's comments...I've been watching City 46 years and our history in that time is littered with defeats against the bottom of the league teams, indeed it was only last season after beating Villa we went to Barnet and lost....look where are they now compared to ourselves.

A Large Post some good some utter rubbish but all are entitled to there say. Yesterday the better team won indeed they could have scored more. Has regards the direct style we play so called HOOF is this in the Managers opinion the only way to play with the players he has however he has brought most of these players to City so the ball is in his court. At the moment City are not capable of going up a division this team have reached the level of the ability which they have apart from one or two younger players who should improve This team will stay in division one but will never progress without a infusion of better players. Our manager has in the past managed teams who have played good football and is quite capable of doing so In regard to Mclean he appears to be a player past his best and has a goal scorer it is not happening and will not do so this player is a expensive miss hit James Hanson can play good football on the ground given the chance do not under estimate him. To sum up our team does need improvement we all know that and we all want to watch a great passing game with the ball ending up in the net and if we get that our crowds will increase to 20,000 we live in hope

Shocking...just shocking. Letting Freeman have two clear shots on goal was just plain suicide. Before you start I was at the game sat behind Parkinson.

The guy just does not have a clue about tactics and players. Instead of shutting up shop and getting a 2-2 result. Put on Dolan and make the mid tighter as Freeman was giving us the run around. Instead he puts on Gray and Yeates who do nothing for the team.

Maclean tries too hard - he really should have had a goal- big Jim Hanson got so many flickons - yet Mclean does not know how to read it.

Hats off to Adam Reach - he reminds me of Chris Waddle! The lads a good player. I hope Boro don't recall him. I hear he maybe out of contract in the summer. Come on City snap him up.
Parkinson just stands there with his hands in his pockets. A manager should be dictating tactics and motivating his players. It's as if he couldn't be bothered. Their second goal was the fault of Jones not being able to tackle and Doyle just backing off. It's time for a clear out starting with the manager

My wife asked once, why do the men keep passing the ball to the other team(bless her) with their heads and also why is the ball in the air when it is called FOOTBALL !! what does she know about a simple sport played with idiots who have no idea how to trap a ball and think before making a pass to the same colour shirt ?

Some of you will not like this but PP needs to go after watching them Saturday the tactics where wrong,dreadful and one dimensional play... He plays the stupid long ball tactic with a high defence every game he never changes it.. its just Sunday league football at its worse, defence get the ball, you hit it up field and hopefully your strikers and get to hold it up for the runners..I like PP hes done some good stuff for the city of Bradford but for city to go Forward we need a good manager to come in and play some good football..i think its time for change at the end of the season

The guy just does not have a clue about tactics and players. Instead of shutting up shop and getting a 2-2 result. Put on Dolan and make the mid tighter as Freeman was giving us the run around. Instead he puts on Gray and Yeates who do nothing for the team.

Maclean tries too hard - he really should have had a goal- big Jim Hanson got so many flickons - yet Mclean does not know how to read it.

Hats off to Adam Reach - he reminds me of Chris Waddle! The lads a good player. I hope Boro don't recall him. I hear he maybe out of contract in the summer. Come on City snap him up.
Parkinson just stands there with his hands in his pockets. A manager should be dictating tactics and motivating his players. It's as if he couldn't be bothered. Their second goal was the fault of Jones not being able to tackle and Doyle just backing off. It's time for a clear out starting with the manager

Yesterday was the worst result of the season, but the reaction after the previous worst at Carlisle was two clean sheets and two wins....so lets take Brentford on like Stevenage did with us....stranger things happen but maybe a point will be gained. ..then four eminently winnable fixtues v Colchester, Gillimgham, Shrewsbury and Walsall...before another 'Brentford' type challenge at Orient to conclude March...the reality is we are just as close to seventh today as we were on Saturday morning...use Atkinson and Dolan a lotmore often, get Davies back quickly, work hard with McLean and Bennett and I feel ninth is distinctly possible..There are plenty of other average teams both above and below us..top six, Crawley and now Sheffield United apart (the final top eight).

Really think McClean should be dropped as will drag us down.
I knew he was the wrong choice and I know I will get a load of minus for this comment but its the truth.
McClean plays too deep and his positioning to Hanson is way off.
Thank god James knows how to score!
Comments like this about Mclean are the reason several other strikers did not want to come to Valley Parade and take over the mantle of Nahki Wells. Mclean is hardly an appalling signing, he's shown some good intelligent play. He and Hanson just need a bit more time to get used to one another. Hanson is playing well himself but he needs to adapt and get used to the fact he's playing with a different style of partner to Wells. Anyone who wanted or expected a Nahki Wells clone who simply slotted in was going to be disappointed.
What? Ha ha we wanted a goal scorer not a has been who has not come cheap. How long do you want to give him then? Another 6 or seven games?
He is a professional and should know to stick close to Hanson and feed off of him and maybe just maybe the odd goal might come.
This guy keeps tracking back and thinking he is a defensive midfielder and would not mind as much but he does not even win a tackle.
Disagree with your comment. He has had enough games now to gel!!!!

I must admit that I'm sick and tired of our "hoof-it" style. It worked with Nahki but it's not working now.

The players are capable of playing football but PP seems one dimensional. I believe Colin Cooper would have done a good job but he knew his face didn't fit with a certain individual.

Sadly, I'm coming around to the view that PP is not the man to take us forward and the expensive, but misfiring, signing of McLean may well prove to seal his fate, come the summer.
I'm with you Pablo. Win lose or draw the way we play is God awful to watch. I said on another thread that if you nullify Reach and Hanson we offer nothing and how easy was it for the worst team in the division to do just that? Comprehensively outplayed from start to finish by the worst team in the league who dominated possession and could quite easily have scored five or six is embarrassing to say the least. The sad thing is while Parkinson and Hanson are here things aren't going to change. We'll bypass midfield and hit (hoof) diagonals to Hanson and hope the poor sap playing alongside him can perform miracles while feeding off scraps. That said I've no doubt beating the odd side that can't cope with our aerial bombardment will satisfy the easily pleased masses.

Individually, Doyle's a defensive midfield player that gets done by anyone with movement and a modicum of pace and offers very little protection for the back four and Thompson has two good moments a game if we're lucky. That's half our midfield offering jack. If Reach is double teamed that leaves the old warhorse to charge about and do the work of four men. Is it any wonder that we're second best every week?
Having read some utter tosh above; you win this weeks prize for numbskull of the week.

"how easy was it to nullify Reach and Hanson"...it was that easy that they both scored.

"is it any wonder that we're second best every week"....er, we won the last two matches.

As for other posters, Why is Doyle geting the blame for their second equaliser when it was Reach who let him run from the right side of midfield? Why is Jon Mac rubbish when he concedes from distance but when City score long-range goals (Reid at Walsall, Reach yesterday etc) they are great strikes.

Blame, blame, blame. That is all we hear when we lose and then we hear nothing from any of you as to why we win games? Doesn't seem to matter who but the hard of thinking are always desperate for a scapegoat. To cap it all there is never ANY credit given to the opposition who yesterday played their bottoms off.

What a bunch of pathetic, whinging, low-lifes you lot are. Sing when we're winning, you only sing when you're winning. Teams win and teams lose "together"...what a shame that some of you are part of my team...you are not fit to wear the shirt. A club is for life, not just for Wembley.
Here we go, a City fan with his head in the clouds and missing the point. Who'd a thought it? Reach and Hanson did indeed score but it only takes a second to score a goal and the other 93 minutes and 58 seconds that I had to watch made my eyes bleed, and that my friend is the point I was trying to make. Also, prior to Saturday, you're right, we had won two games on the bounce but once again, the point is we didn't look great achieving them and it's been the same all season.

For the record I'm no glory hunter that demands success. I'm happy with our position, I didn't expect anything else. Anything other than relegation will be a bonus and mid-table mediocrity suits me just fine. I just wish we could achieve it playing a different way because I don't like Parkinsons methods and our style of play and I didn't last season while we were winning the odd game or two in the cup. If you're a blinkered, brain dead zombie happy watching a team that can't string three passes together, that's fine. Just don't expect me to tow the party line.

Reach and Hanson did indeed score but it only takes a second to score a goal and the other 93 minutes and 58 seconds that I had to watch made my eyes bleed, and that my friend is the point I was trying to make. Also, prior to Saturday, you're right, we had won two games on the bounce but once again, the point is we didn't look great achieving them and it's been the same all season. For the record I'm no glory hunter that demands success. I'm happy with our position, I didn't expect anything else. Anything other than relegation will be a bonus and mid-table mediocrity suits me just fine. I just wish we could achieve it playing a different way because I don't like Parkinsons methods and our style of play and I didn't last season while we were winning the odd game or two in the cup. If you're a blinkered, brain dead zombie happy watching a team that can't string three passes together, that's fine. Just don't expect me to tow the party line. diffident

Sorry but McClean absolute garbage.
What a waste of money that guy is.
This makes me laugh but would rather have Gray on than him.
Another appalling signing by the manger who is treading on thin Ice at the moment.
Davis great player but sick note far too often.
Clearout at end of season if we stay up!
Really think McClean should be dropped as will drag us down.
I knew he was the wrong choice and I know I will get a load of minus for this comment but its the truth.
McClean plays too deep and his positioning to Hanson is way off.
Thank god James knows how to score!
Comments like this about Mclean are the reason several other strikers did not want to come to Valley Parade and take over the mantle of Nahki Wells. Mclean is hardly an appalling signing, he's shown some good intelligent play. He and Hanson just need a bit more time to get used to one another. Hanson is playing well himself but he needs to adapt and get used to the fact he's playing with a different style of partner to Wells. Anyone who wanted or expected a Nahki Wells clone who simply slotted in was going to be disappointed.
What? Ha ha we wanted a goal scorer not a has been who has not come cheap. How long do you want to give him then? Another 6 or seven games?
He is a professional and should know to stick close to Hanson and feed off of him and maybe just maybe the odd goal might come.
This guy keeps tracking back and thinking he is a defensive midfielder and would not mind as much but he does not even win a tackle.
Disagree with your comment. He has had enough games now to gel!!!!
Oh my Lord, you've got to see it to believe it, 'He is a professional and should know to stick close to Hanson and feed off of him'. Have you ever played football? Do you know hard it is to anticipate where the ball's going to land off the head of a team mate who's getting clattered by a centre-half? Especially a player that's not used to running around in circles like a headless chicken and played at higher level with players that like to pass the ball to feet. I've done it myself albeit at a much lower level and believe me, it's horrible and in a side that's not getting results seriously demoralising. So demoralising you're compelled to leave for pastures new where your talent shines through and is appreciated!

Shocking...just shocking. Letting Freeman have two clear shots on goal was just plain suicide. Before you start I was at the game sat behind Parkinson.

The guy just does not have a clue about tactics and players. Instead of shutting up shop and getting a 2-2 result. Put on Dolan and make the mid tighter as Freeman was giving us the run around. Instead he puts on Gray and Yeates who do nothing for the team.

Maclean tries too hard - he really should have had a goal- big Jim Hanson got so many flickons - yet Mclean does not know how to read it.

Hats off to Adam Reach - he reminds me of Chris Waddle! The lads a good player. I hope Boro don't recall him. I hear he maybe out of contract in the summer. Come on City snap him up.
Parkinson just stands there with his hands in his pockets. A manager should be dictating tactics and motivating his players. It's as if he couldn't be bothered. Their second goal was the fault of Jones not being able to tackle and Doyle just backing off. It's time for a clear out starting with the manager
Please Nahki, come back to City....... We really can use you because I see someone wearing your #21 jersey and he wishes he can tie your laces.....He wishes he was fast like you....The fact you had 4 assist yesterday tells me your game is maturing even more... Please come back, I'll even let you be PLAYER COACH......... I've been crying since you left.....Crying my head off!!!!!!!!!! We need help because we are only 6 POINTS from relegation, can you imagine if Bradford didn't win the previous 2, it will be at RELEGATION ZONE....NAHKI WELLS, WE NEED YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO...!!!!!!!!!
Hanson 5 - 2 Wells....since their separation. Says it all about your boyfriend. Beating Barnsley is not exactly a challenge and Wells still cant score
Nahki had four assists on Saturday
