So, KUMB have woken up to what this blog has been saying for quite some time now. Six days ago, I ran a thread entitled "Parker does a Defoe" and came in for the usual abuse and tosh about Mr West Ham Scotty Parker. The parallel was unfair apparently.
Well somebody over at KUMB picked up on the article, left it six days for the dust to settle and has produced their own take on it, concluding with the judgement:
"A good player? Check. A fine servant during his time at the club? Check. A player who went beyond the call of duty at times? Check. But a legend? Not by following in the footsteps of Jermain Defoe and walking out on us as soon as the going gets tough, you're not."
It's interesting to watch the revisionism happening before our very eyes. Never mind the Judas judgement, there's also the interesting appraisal of Scotty's ability. Note, KUMB call him a "good player" - no hint of genius there then!
Over on the Org, positions are shifting. Now it's not just Fanno and Fareham who are putting the boot in to Parker, more and more are waking up to the way Scotty has milked the club. Just wait until he has joined Spurs! How the Parker Groupies will exult when Saint Scotty is benched by 'Arry.
But will anybody come on here and say, "You were right all along"? I'm not holding my breath for some reason!
