    As I mentioned earlier....we set out to get out the cup competitions so we achieved that. It's a shame the club couldn't be up front and tell the 300 plus fans going to the game of our intentions. We couldn't make it past Scunthorpe and Gillingham in the cups......let's wait for more bullsh*t from the club.....can't even tell us where the the investors figure in. Left us to guess....

    Should have stuck with Ross until Christmas unless we had someone **** hot lined up. That's not said with hindsight it's what I said at the time.

    I wouldn't mind if Parkinson had some kind of footballing philosophy and it was taking time to bed in but I'm seeing nothing of the sort.

    It’s about 14 month since we beat these 4-1 at a canter down there. To see a safc team with zero shots on target is not acceptable.

    they should be ashamed with that

    Looks to have the same problem as Ross - struggling to find a system that suits the players we've got. Bit hard to get them playing to any sort of orders when they don't even do the basics right.

    With regard to Ross(although I'd have rather we kept him) I don't think he could have stayed - the crowd had completely turned on him and there was no sign of improvement in the offing.

    That ships already sailed mate, the season is already over and we'll end up in mid table obscurity.

    i'm not sure what's not for you, fella. I didn't say i thought grayson was any good for us.

    to be more explicit i think we are looking worse now than under Grayson, who was pretty ****. (but not half as bad as that miserable **** Moyes)

    Our current playing staff are shot to bits, PP has no ****ing clue how to make it work and the investment speculation /lack of direction this year has destabilised & diminished all the positivity built up last season.

    we're going to humped like a filthy whore between now and January. it is going to need a massive ****ing effort and impeccable jnvestment in Jan to turn this around

    That’s why I call for a basic 442 . All this fancy formation stuff is for quality players. At this level it’s bog standard and kick and rush.

    look at Wycombe ffs with akinfenwa upfront. 442 and play the percentages. Safc are trying to play at this level and only Swansea have done that in the last decade.

    I'm even worried now about the chances of making it to mid table!

    Certainly need to improve on current form(in all games) if we're going to achieve that.

    They should have went with Phillips with Reid in the background.
    I know he’s inexperienced but imo he would set safc out to win games, instead of this safety first style we have adopted.

    we appear to be petrified by the opposition and worrying about them.

    Parkinson has two games left imo. Lose them his job is untenable

    433 in the Wensleydale league and go 343 if the opposition went 442. But it always helped to have the best players!

    No doubt it’s players but I’m convinced a basic 442 would work in this division.

    it’s up to the professionals to sort though but to go through two hours without a shot on target. That’s some incompetent achievement

    That's the 6th defeat for Parky in 9 games.

    For context, Jack Ross lost 10 in total out of 75.

    Apparently Mcgeady told the fans to f**k off.
