I have seen no defensive organisation, nor have I seen any type of organisation, and to say that what we need is another Parkinson type well that's just laughable, tell me this, how many Championship clubs will be clamouring for Parkinson's leadership?[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] wrote:
We've had managers that set up positively, to win matches then when we got battered, it was his fault because we're too open, and we need a McCarthy, Pulis type - someone to steady the ship, organise the defence etc. Well at the minute, that's exactly the sort of manager we've got. It ain't working right now, no doubt about it, but if we were playing the other extreme style and getting the same results, Parky would be just the guy people would be wanting us to bring in.
I don't think Pulis or McCarthy have ever had to build a team under a transfer embargo. They certainly haven't done so while achieving promotion, then Championship survival.
The trouble is that unless/until the club sack Parky, we'll never know exactly how correct you are in terms of how much we actually need him.
We could stick with him all season, get relegated and you could say "I told you so!", but who'd know what would have happened had we gambled and brought a more attacking manager in. Knowing your record Martin, you'd be up his arse for a few weeks before telling us he's systematically destroying us.
