The man is fucking clueless, Buckley offers fuck all, Taylor is a league 1 player at best, Beevers is a mistake waiting to happen, Flanagan is a poor mans Little, but worst of all Parkinson's failiure to adapt to Madine's sale is getting embarrasing, tonight against a relegation rival with a worse away record than us we failed to hit the target ONCE, how does this man see himself as a championship manager? he's fucking awful, fuck him off Ken.

Which players are underperforming and where should we be in the league?

Manager is under performing and we should be in a lot better position than at present.

You spend your money, you have a right to be annoyed. 

I just don’t see how you can think this squad is any better than relegation fodder. Who in the team is underperforming?

Can you blame the manager for having his most important player sold and not replaced in January?

Parkinson has been polishing turds all season and he hasn't got a clue which is which, and therein is the problem!!

The same as he sees in Craig No one and Andy Taylor.
Wheater should be first on the team sheet but they've had a spat!

Buckley, Vela, Taylor, Derik all players out of form yet regularly picked, Wilbraham regularly on the bench when Hall would be a better option, stupid subs in the 89th minute, 12 goals away all season, so many games with zero shots on target all add to my argument that Parkinson is a clueless fucker.

ALF was marked by a guy about a foot taller than him and yet they reverted to hoofball which simply gave the ball back to Birmingham. And then he brought the dwarf Clough on against a 10 man defence. I'm beginning to think clueless is becoming appropriate for Parkinson

It's hard to criticise a manager who got us promoted automatically from league 1 on a shoestring budget when we were in crisis, but even last season I got the feeling he was out of his depth and we got promoted despite having him as manager rather than because of it. His one and only tactic seems to be hoofball (something Bradford fans also accused him of despite taking them to a cup final).

Exactly, his inability to adapt to Madines sale tells us all we need to know, he's a league 1-2 manager at best, and even if we go down I'd want him gone, I feel there are a lot better managers out there that can have us playing better, hopefully there will be investment in the Summer and we can finally start to move forward, and Parkinson will be nothing but a bad memory.

Whatever team he picks, people are always gonna say they could have picked a better one after a performance and result as sickening as that.

But let's face it, how many clubs' fans right now are actually satisfied with their manager? How many of the ones that are will still be happy this time next year?

None of the managers since Allardyce have been universally popular for a period of over 12 months.

The one thing Parkinson can say that the others can't is that the club's in a better position than it was when he arrived.

So I understand people get pissed off with him at times, but ask yourself what it'd take to get a manager in that you didn't wanna see get fired off.

1. Of course he’s a league 1 manager, you get what you pay for in football (largely) and our budget both for wages and transfers is league 1 standard.

2. Which manager would you want, who would take the job? Did you see the list of names when Parky got it? It’s not an attractive proposition managaing a club with no money.

3. Parkinson didn’t sell madine - you don’t need me to tell you that. He’s a limited manager no doubt (see point 1), most managers are - Monk for instance (who’s highly rated by the press) was lumping it all night by all accounts.

4. Parkinson has taken the club forward since he came in, keeping us up would be a miracle. Whether he’d be able to build a side that progresses in this division is another question.

All these designer managers would be out there depth at BWFC but there are some that wouldn't and you've mentioned one.
Happy days.

We can't sack him now with 6 games to go but i wouldn't be that sad if he left in the summer to be honest. 
He does deserve credit for getting us up last season and still being in a position to stay up this year with no money to spend but his tactics are negative. No shots on target in our biggest game so far this season is shocking. 
If we do get money to spend next season i'm not sure i'd trust him to spend it wisely judging on some of his recent loan signings who have been largely a waste of time.

I broadly agree with this despite thinking that Parky is limited in ability and dogmatic about his style of play and selections. 
The case for keeping Parky on is that it's too late for a new manager to have much of an impact at this stage, and if we are relegated Parky is probably capable of doing a decent job in League 1 - with the caveat that the financial damage caused will probably mean he won't have anywhere near the quality of player we had last year (it is possible!)
Perhaps on balance we should get someone who is more creative and open to developing and giving opportunities to the younger players as that's perhaps all he'll have to work with next season. 
We'll see. I have a theory about the psychology of this team under Parky and logic dictates that now we are well and truly back in the poo the team will up their game again. It shouldn't be that way under a good manager, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Largely agree with this too, although I’ve no issue with negative tactics if we stay up. Would also like to see a list of potential candidates before saying I’d like him to go, think we could struggle.

The issue of Parky's tactics for me is that whilst I don't have a problem in principle with a defensive focus - providing we carry a counter-attacking threat, but recently he's replaced two reasonably quick wingbacks with Flanagan and Taylor and prefers slowcoaches like Wilbraham up front when we have pacy, albeit less experienced strikers in the squad, effectively negating our attacking options - as demonstrated by our goal return. To be fair to Parky, he's sees them in training all week, but I can't help feeling he should be looking for ways to make our attack more threatening and use the squad to provide other dimensions to our game. Like you, it doesn't matter if we stay up, but looking at the remaining fixtures it's hard to see any guarantee of that happening. Could go either way IMO.

Flanagan’s capable of getting up and down, but I agree with you overall he’s chosen too solid options which has affected our attacking threat.

It might not work, but put Parkinson on gardening leave, let Lee and Kelly take over, like I say it may not work but it will be a damn site better than keeping Parkinson, let's be honest with ourselves Parkinson's inability reflects on the players as it's mainly them getting all the stick, when in reality it's Parkinson's tactics that are holding us back, can't do any worse without him surely.

Last night he started with one striker up front in a game we really had to win. It's going into games with an attitude of not to lose rather that going for the win. PP is not the only one doing that. Lots of clubs try it. A team will get some points via this route but overall in a season you will find those clubs near the bottom of the table.
Overall it's just negative football.....
50/50 on if we should get rid of PP.....probably too late in the season now.

Fine, but that was a stupid comment from you. We could (and IMO should) be doing worse than we are, this squad and our resources should have us bottom 3 incredible that we’re not. More like last night and we will be.

Last night changed my mind. Yes, we're skint but the manager has to make the most of his hand - and Parky failed miserably. Tactically inept, stupid team selection and negative to boot!

Trust me, if you'd witnessed last night you wouldn't be defending the manager today.

And normally not mine, but last night was just ridiculous. I don't think anyone on here can justify the team selection and tactics.

But I'd love someone to try.
