Parkinson's tactics were too negative and are the same in most games.
Despite seven games without defeat tonight's performance was the sort that guarantees the third relegation spot- and that is exactly what we deserve
RT - You speak the truth! Disgraceful that Parky doesn't learn that his tactics are not holding leads. 8 points from 4 games... and we return to the bottom three. We should have been out of there and looking above us. Wake up Parky!

However inviting pressure by sitting deep for an hour makes conceding inevitable, especially if we didn't have the ball further up the pitch occasionally to make them think twice about piling forward. Somehow he's got to find a way of controlling the midfield - not just breaking up attacks and then giving the ball back - but I don't think we have the players for it. And I suspect Parky thinks that too which is why we always seem to be dropping off instead of taking the game to the opposition at every opportunity. Possession is important if you do something with it, but to coin a NFL phrase, so does field position and if that position is around your own box for most of the game then they have all the chances and you can't score from there.
