It's the only way I've made it through the season, I'm not stopping now.

Everything being said about the Forest game was said before the Burton game, and Parky still picked a negative side.

Does anyone really think Parky is going to send out an attacking team?

I believe you have asked the question incorrectly.  Will the Nutters send out an attacking team to visit Parky if he pulls the same crap this week?

Yes because he’s been forced to do so.

The team will still fail though.

Impossible KP. According to everyone on here it's only parky to blame. Going by that logic, if he sends out an attacking team, we cannot fail to win. Some people even suggested playoffs would have been possible had parky sent out an attacking team every week. And here I am being called a mentalist...

Lots of talk here about picking an attacking side......but just who exactly would that involve?

 I don't see which players would be likely to make the difference.....and that's been the problem all season, hence the much-criticised "tinkering". 

 Would we really lumber the kids with the responsibility in such an important match? I don't think they are up to the physical test of championship football, but certainly promising for the future, by all accounts. Now what did Alan Hansen say all those years ago?

Burton and Barnsley have shown more balls in the last few weeks than we've shown all season. They won't be rolling over for Derby or North End.

Just like Derby or North End won’t be rolling over for them. Difference is these two teams have real quality and just as much to play for.

Great that both Barnsley and Burton also have to win can see them drawing but Derby have helped to put us in this position losing to Burton and Sunderland yet tonking us. Derby unreliable at the very least

Derby have been very unreliable but they can be caught by PNE which would put them out of the playoffs if they lose so it would be incredibly disappointing if either team didn't bring their A game. That said, if Derby are winning comfortably towards the end of the game, PNE might drop heads and cock it up - and I don't suppose they'd give a second thought to us going down given our playoff history with them. 
But if I could pick two teams to be our rival's opposition for the final game, Derby and PNE would be my choice and in that respect we've had a bit of luck in that the fixtures worked out so that they are the only two teams apart from Fulham and Cardiff who are battling for something.

I have gone somewhat positive to be fair in Norpig’s comp with a 1-1 draw with Alnwick the goal scorer. 

Ken said we will be all out attacking this time so I expect him to be banging the headers in off the corners! Smile

WOW. Sluffy was right and so was Ken with his "all out attacking" speech. Fair play. However Parky still has to be booted out.

Never had any doubts to be honest when I wrote what I did at the start of this thread.

Derby and Preston were never going to roll over so that meant we only had to win.

If we couldn't win our last game in front of our rabid fans against a team that had absolutely nothing to play for then we would have fully deserved to go down.

Tbf we made it much harder than I thought it would have been but with the fans fully behind us we got the result and I'm really pleased Wilbraham got the winner and Parkinson (started the season under an embargo - no defensive midfielder in the squad until the embargo was lifted 9 games (and only 2 points in), were being quoted at 1,500 to 1 AGAINST staying up by the bookies, and had his top scorer and the teams key player sold halfway through the season without a proper replacement) kept us up!

They did it despite the abuse they received from so many.

The thing is Sluffy, in the last five or six games most of the players looked like they didn't give a shit. That is the problem. Look at Burton. Relegated, but gave it everything in every game. Don't get me wrong, I am so chuffed that we stayed up, but the players haven't exactly covered themselves in glory. All anyone asks is that they give 100% when they pull on the White Shirt. That has not been the case for most of them.

That has not been the case for most of them.

The thing is though the season has 46 games to it and Parkinson and the players got us - against the odds (sterner embargo/no centre mid until embargo lifted/selling key player and top goal scorer halfway through the season, etc) to the last game of the season with us having a reasonably good chance of staying up.

I expect other things have been happening in the background too that have effected things on the pitch that we have never heard about - probably effecting various players availability and thus team selections.

It came down to the last match and as I've said above of how the games fell we only really needed to win or last match, at home, in front of our great support, to stay up - which we did (even though we had to do it the Bolton way and make it difficult for ourselves).

We were the favourities to go down at the start of the season - we were under embargo, had warring co-owners and massive debts thanks to Holdsworth and his BluMarble loan.  We built the team on loans and out of contract players that no other teams seem to want.

A massive amount as been achieved both on and off the pitch.  Anderson deserves praise for us even still having a club to support - yet moonmen like Wanderlust believe he's robbing the club blind - and Parkinson lauded that he kept us up with what he was given - yet simpletons like Martin (anybody seen much of him since we won - because as sure as eggs are eggs he would have been all over this forum telling us what he thinks of Parkinson if we hadn't!) moans and is foul mouthed because he's not got us playing like Brazil!

Yes, maybe he should have been more positive and bolder at times but he's achieved a minor miracle considering what challenges he's had to face this season (and last).

He deserves a medal not a bullet!

You're wrong of course, tell me this, how has Parkinson kept us up? we'd have been relegated weeks if not months ago but for other teams around us being equally shit if not shitter, Parkinson has got lucky in that Burton and Barnsley have been shooting themselves in the foot, let's not give Parkinson any credit for them two being shitter than we have eh.

Eh???

Isn't that how relegation works, the worse teams get relegated and the teams that aren't the worst stay up?

Exactly. I think Parky must have shagged Martin's wife or something. Never heard owt like it.

I suspect Parky will still be our manager come August, people quickly forget the shitfests against Birmingham, Burton etc when you stay up in such spectacular style.

Personally I'd get rid of Parky, because I don't believe we will progress under him. He is far too cautious, we got away with it this year, but I can't believe the Championship will be as crap next season.

You're being blinded by one great performance, you slag Coyle off, but heap praise on a piss poor manager, you just don't know very much about football if you think Parkinson deserves anything other than the sack.

Personally im 50 50 on whether I want him to stay or go. He’s done a fantastic job getting us out of league one and keeping us up. His style is way too conservative to compete at this level, but I feel he’s been forced to play a certain way, he has one of the poorest squads in the league so has had to go into every game set up to contain the opposition and hope to nick a goal.

I’d like to see him with a bit of cash behind him, to replace Madine and add a touch of quality.
