The Only Way Is Up

Look lads and lasses it's so easy to feel down about the Wycombe result but we need to get real here and give Phil Parkinson a chance.
We had a reality check yesterday but I believe the only way is up.

He will get a chance. If you heard the radio commentary yesterday you would think all our fans were going against him already.

Also if you go on social media and some other sites we are already relegated and the manager is the worst we've ever had.
Those "fans" don't represent all of us and Tuesday night's game will show that he has the support of "real fans".

He's only had the job 5 minutes and the crowd will back him, bookmark this and come back after Tuesday nights game to prove me wrong.
Saying that he will only have a handful of games to show improvement on Ross' results, after this, if things don't improve, they will not only be on his back but Donald's too.

Depends where you go and what you read, my advice is to keep calm.

Or maybe some fans are worried about where the club is heading?

This is the worst position in the clubs entire history, I think fans are entitled and justified in not feeling great about it

Correct but should we take one result and say our new manager is bad. We all feel bad but one swallow doesn't make a summer. It'll come good and on Tuesday night we will see an instant improvement in everything. Result, style of play, character, the lot.

There's a few anxious fans out there but this is a new chapter. I don't think those who pull the new manager down mean it right now just showing their frustrations and there has to be a target.
