Thread for Episode 11...


Fans grumble about Wrexham's lacklustre performance and aim their ire at manager Phil Parkinson. Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney debate his future with the club.
 
Teaser for this one has R+R reading out some fan tweets with Ryan joking about a Parky Out t-shirt !
 
Can’t wait to find out if they sacked him or not!
 
I wonder where the word 'sack' comes from, in terms of relieving someone of their employment. Does it mean metaphorically throwing someone away like a throwing a litter of unwanted kittens into a river, or is it cutting off their metaphorical nutsack? Similarly, does 'fired' represent being set on fire, facing a firing squad, or being fired from a cannon like a human cannonball?

I suppose I could have just googled this.
 
Brilliant episode best yet for me,plenty of emotion from R&R ,yer typical Wxm expecting a big win disaster, Parky on verge of sack? do they give him money? Parky swearing tickles me, the episode flew by not like the previous 1
 
Wow, wow, wow!
This series just keeps getting better.
This one was really fast paced and included a huge bunch of stuff but at no time did it feel cramped.
After all the downers in prior episodes this was just a joy to watch.
And we know that the best (even if not quite enough) is yet to come.
 
It paints things in an interesting light that our wage bill was £2.3m BEFORE the January window last season and Parkinson was still asking for more investment.
 
I really like Parky. I didn't always, a lesson in giving people a chance this episode for me.

The time he makes for fans (especially at that time when things weren't going to plan) and the way he speaks. Good guy.

He's a good guy, shows how much passion he has and he "gets us" so from that episode, I took away that if he'd not improved us he was looking at the sack in January!
