Just sell Parker and get on with the season!
I am sick to death of the club dancing around the Parker handbag. We all know Sullivan is going to let Levy have what he wants, so why don't we just get on with it? The same probably goes for Cole and Liverpool! Being coy is no good when everybody in the night club knows, from past experience, that you come across for a Bacardi and coke and the promise of a ticket to Thorpe Park!
It's not as if Parker is a world beater anyway. I keep saying he is part of the problem because of his limited vision and poor goal scoring return. He obviously doesn't want to stay - otherwise that contract would be signed - so retaining him is just dragging out the inevitable and slowing down the process of restructuring. The decision of Grant to start with a team made up entirely of Zola men yesterday says it all. They weren't good enough last season and they won't be good enough this. If we can't buy without selling, then we had better sell, and fast!
Gera was only used as a sub again yesterday and he would be my man to replace Parker. I mooted the Keane exchange some time back and I still think that would be a good option. We must be anticipating another domestic loan signing or we would have had Caceida by now. Who is the earmarked man? Hutton? Keane himself? O'Hara?
In Grant's shoes, I would clear out Behrami, Parker and Cole. It pains me to say this about Carlton but he isn't worth keeping if Liverpool offer £12m or above. Who do we buy or sign on loan? To be honest, anything will be better than what we have. These players are stuck in a pit of despair and the more we move out, the better.
