Phil Parkinson warns Bradford City must get back on track in league before cup diversions

James Hanson has now gone 15 games since he last scored after drawing another blank against Exeter on Saturday

Phil Parkinson will demand an immediate response from City as they embark on a “huge week” for their promotion chances.

The Bantams host Plymouth tonight and then travel to Bristol Rovers before the next batch of cup ties take over.

Parkinson insists they must pick it up in the league again after Saturday’s home slip-up to Exeter.

He said: “We’ve got a really big two games coming up. Three of the next four after that are in the cup but they are bonuses.

“The league is huge for us. These two games will determine whether we’ll go into those in the top seven or not – and we’ve got to make sure we do.”

Defenders James Meredith and Stephen Darby are both ready to return after recovering from hip problems. But Zavon Hines, whose injured ankle was scanned yesterday, is likely to remain on the sidelines.

City have fired blanks in their last two league outings at Valley Parade and Parkinson wants to see more done to assist top scorer Nahki Wells.

James Hanson, in particular, has gone 15 games since his last goal against Morecambe – the longest drought of the centre forward’s career.

“We were full of praise for the way James performed at Aldershot but he knows that strikers are judged on goals,” said Parkinson.

“He’s had a lot of chances of late and he’s got to be hard on himself. He’s a key player for us and has done great with the role he offers the team but he knows he’s got to produce.

“We can’t just rely on Nahki to score. He’s got a tremendous ratio but we need other people in the team to chip in.

“We need them to come up to the plate. Everybody in the team has to have a responsibility to have that desire to score.”

Plymouth have lost five of their last six games, including an FA Cup exit at non-league Dorchester, and the City chief expects his side to get at them from the start.

Parkinson felt there were signs of slipping back into bad habits at the weekend and wants that stamped out straight away.

He said: “The first half on Saturday was the first time I thought we did that. We only started playing when the chips were down and we can’t have that.

“Everybody’s got to be right on it. We’ve got to be on the front foot and positive in everything we do; that’s the way we play.

“We need to be flat out and if people give us so much for 70 minutes that we have to bring them off, then that’s what we’ll do.

“We’ve done tremendously well this season with a small squad. Saturday was a day when things caught up with us a little bit and I totally accept that.

“The make-up of the side didn’t carry enough threat and we’ve got to rectify that to work the opposition goal more than we did.

“I want us to go back to our home form and how positive we’ve been up to now.”

Striker Alan Connell added: “We’ve put ourselves in a reasonably good position so far and we don’t want to undo that. We need to get back on track.

“Plymouth are a big club size-wise but not having the best of seasons, so we’ve got to play with real intensity and tempo.”

Plymouth will be without experienced centre half Darren Purse, who was dismissed for an off-the-ball incident in their 3-0 defeat at Fleetwood.

Hopefullyhe will learn from it though and have a screamer tonight.

Actually I think it's pretty fair - acknowledging he's done well but he's also right that a striker does need to score.

If he gets one tonight then it won't be a problem otherwise he's risking becoming a bit Emile Heskey/Peter Crouch - causing problems but not really scoring enough.

We won;t get anywhere until the " strike force ? " is sorted. It;s no good just hitting he ball up to Hanson for his ineffectual flick ons to no one in particular. In addition Hanson is a weak header unless the ball comes straight at him. Also how many times does he shoot wide Get the picture?

But that's my point buddy. I said similar things to those that PP has said and I had many on here slating me for my comments. They claimed;
(i) he hadn't been getting chances
(ii) he isn't in the team to score the goals
(iii) his strength in the air helps keep defences on the back foot AND
(iv) that his overall work-rate was good enough to keep him in the team, irrespective of goals scored.

As I have said many times previously, Hanson is good at what he does and many defenders will have a torid time against him. However, he simply does not get on the end of enough crosses or attack the ball with as much effort in the opposition box as he does in our box or outside it. How many times does he get beaten in the air defending corners? How many times does he get his head to a long punt and flick it on for others to chase? However, how many times does he actually win a header in the opposition penalty area? My answer is simply not enough.

As for chances, he doesn't get boatloads, but he has had some decent chances recently and simply not converted them.

Now that PP has said similar, perhaps a few may apologise to me for attacking my view? Thought not..! LOL

Yeah, we need to be playing it on the floor to Shearer. Just a minute, we lost out on his signature to BBC.

Or maybe tapping it into Connell's path in the 6 yard box, he won't let us down in there, or possibly setting Nahki up to fire in unchallenged, these pesky 4th division strikers not doing the things that Premier league guys do week in week out.

Maybe we should sign Tom Pope with his illustrious strike rate of 0.25 goals per game, much better than Hanson's 0.28 goals per game.

We all know he is bang out of form in front of goal, this has been apparent since the first few weeks of the season, chances he should have put in he hasn't but then again that is also the case with the other two strikers.

A striker on a drought needs a lucky goal or two to kick start him again, this is nothing new, it is a known phenomenon but as a club we need him to start soon and as a fan of 40+ years I really hope it is tonight so that you 'pundits' look elsewhere for your scapegoat.

Waynus, If your four points above are an argument for Hanson not be in the team maybe you could explain why PP is picking him to play every week? If Hansons contribution was simple based on how many goals he scored then he would be unlikely to get picked on such a regular basis. Of course, as you accept, he contributes much more than just being a goalscorer. What are you proposing, that he be dropped because he isn't scoring? Or leave him in and waite till he starts again? Do you think he isn't trying to score?

Now that most of the League has played each other it is possible to see how some of what may have appeared to be "poor" results at the time were actually not bad.

Saw Port Vale struggled against York on Saturday for example, just as we did - once again - this is an example - but there have been other similar results.

Well, no surprise that the Hanson bashers have taken the opportunity to crawl back out of the woodwork. Obviously, pensioner Waynus is their cheer-leader. No doubt our pensioner friend is on his 'pub-watching' duties just in case James drinks his shandies a little too quickly. Very helpful too for all the Hanson bashers to point-out the dozens of shortcomings the player apparently has. Still, the Hanson bashers have always insisted that James was a pub-footballer.

Not only me then shaun from richmond who thinks (some one on here) has a vendetta against James Hanson !! just love that comment "What and How much" HE DRINKS!!. "Cyber-Police"....TH AT WOULD BE YOU THEN!!!. but that was over two years ago so I don't count :-)).
If Phil Parkinson is not happy with Hanson's scoring record play two from Connell,Thompson,Wel
ls and see how they perform,oh just a minute we did that against Chesterfield (when Hanson had a virus) and we looked toothless up front.

Whatever is said on here we'll all be there tonight getting behind the team.

We need the win and if we are to be taken seriously as realistic promotion contenders we should win.

We'll all feel more upbeat with another three points - mind you - taking nothing for granted - we will have to earn a victory and learn from our poor first half against Exeter.

Come on boys up the tempo and do the business!

Actually I think it's pretty fair - acknowledging he's done well but he's also right that a striker does need to score. If he gets one tonight then it won't be a problem otherwise he's risking becoming a bit Emile Heskey/Peter Crouch - causing problems but not really scoring enough.
But that's my point buddy. I said similar things to those that PP has said and I had many on here slating me for my comments. They claimed;
(i) he hadn't been getting chances
(ii) he isn't in the team to score the goals
(iii) his strength in the air helps keep defences on the back foot AND
(iv) that his overall work-rate was good enough to keep him in the team, irrespective of goals scored.

As I have said many times previously, Hanson is good at what he does and many defenders will have a torid time against him. However, he simply does not get on the end of enough crosses or attack the ball with as much effort in the opposition box as he does in our box or outside it. How many times does he get beaten in the air defending corners? How many times does he get his head to a long punt and flick it on for others to chase? However, how many times does he actually win a header in the opposition penalty area? My answer is simply not enough.

As for chances, he doesn't get boatloads, but he has had some decent chances recently and simply not converted them.

Now that PP has said similar, perhaps a few may apologise to me for attacking my view? Thought not..! LOL
Waynus, If your four points above are an argument for Hanson not be in the team maybe you could explain why PP is picking him to play every week? If Hansons contribution was simple based on how many goals he scored then he would be unlikely to get picked on such a regular basis. Of course, as you accept, he contributes much more than just being a goalscorer. What are you proposing, that he be dropped because he isn't scoring? Or leave him in and waite till he starts again? Do you think he isn't trying to score?
I'm confused Lonnie. When or where have I cited Hanson be dropped? My point ( and perhaps naughty of me to raise it again) is that some players, in some eyes (admittedly not everyone's) can do no wrong.

On Saturday, there were some back to bashing Atkinson and Forsyth is coming in for some stick. My point is, how are these lads getting stick (as does Wells as soon as he misses a good opportunity) but the likes if Hanson and Jones do not?

With regard to Hanson's weaknesses (in my eyes anyway), you have to ask the coaching staff why they aren't developing this part of his game. I'm not trying to "bash" Hanson, but I am trying to put his ability into the same perspective as others are doing for Atkinson, Forsyth ET al.

Prisoner Cell Block A says...

Forsyth didn't jump with his man, was lethargic and unenthusiastic, deserved the moans he received post match, never during.

The work needed on the training ground is the final delivery, when was the last whipped in cross?

James does need to 'attack' the ball more in and around the box but he already gets pulled up for fouls now so if he became more aggressive in his attempts to get to a cross he would be likely to concede even more free-kicks.

I have been saying for a month or so now his goal tally needs to pick up and for his own sake as much as any because no number9 likes going one game without a goal never mind 15.

Thing is, if Nahki had gone 15 games without a goal he wouldn't get a start as he doesn't offer much more, and that my friends is the reason and the rub.

Well, no surprise that the Hanson bashers have taken the opportunity to crawl back out of the woodwork. Obviously, pensioner Waynus is their cheer-leader. No doubt our pensioner friend is on his 'pub-watching' duties just in case James drinks his shandies a little too quickly. Very helpful too for all the Hanson bashers to point-out the dozens of shortcomings the player apparently has. Still, the Hanson bashers have always insisted that James was a pub-footballer.
Peter Vile, are you still posting? In fact do you have some kind of filter on your PC as you only ever seem to post when someone is being accused of Hanson bashing?

The fact is, I only mentioned where I believe James needs to improve; today, his own manager repeated my observations. Are you calling PP a "Hanson bashing" too?
