6 games 4 defeats

Last season we were "spoiled" by only 5 defeats. 3 of which came in the last 6 games so we were unused to losing games.

A lot of that was down to Jack Ross' cautious approach - he'd rather draw than risk losing by going for the win.

Parkinson is more pragmatic than that and I think we'll lose more games under him than we would have with Ross, but we'll also win more

Over 6 league games we'd probably win 3 and lose 3 under PP giving us 9 points
Ross would probably win 1, draw 4 and lose the 6th giving us 7 points

I don't think it's going to be pretty, but I do think we will win more games under PP and IF he can find a way to maybe win 4 and lose 2 out of every 6 games then we probably still have a chance of going up

Oxford game wasn't really a "defeat" though was it? 1-1 after 90 mins - the penalty shoot out is just a means of determining who goes through, but the actual result of the match was a draw
:lol: :lol:

Performances have been crap and results have been the same, so nowts changed, suppose we are missing more chances now like
Under JR we didn’t look like winning and shamefully we were the poorer team of two every week. Agree results not been great however think it will turn around

We need some pace and height in January, if he fails to bring this in then it’s game over for the club.
Another year in this tin pot league will finish many supporters.

If it wasn't for the high amount of season card holders I reckon league crowds would be no more than 15000.
That's how it was at RP.

Ross didn’t have a record of winning one in six did he though so how you say he would probably win one and lose one when that wasn’t his record . It’s just revisionism to suit your point

Where are the wins going to come from?

It’s not as though we’ve played decent sides since Parkinson’s appointment.

We played Wycombe who are 2nd in the league and in better form than Ipswich (even without our contribution) as well as Oxford who are presently in 4th and also in excellent form. Shrewsbury are quite a bit lower on the tabke, but are within a few points of us and were playing at home - the match could have gone either way.

Probably not a popular sentiment with some of our fans, but I'm not convinced Wycombe or Oxford were 'winnable' for us ans will wait to see how we fair against the other mid-table sides.
