So Scotty's agent has done it again, negotiating another 3 year contract which keeps the injury prone, ageing, running round in circles, midfield spinning dynamo in the Prem and so in with a shout of going to Brazil...well in Scotty's mind at least.
Redknapp must be fuming. 'Arry went out on a limb when pushing the case for signing Parker when at Spurs and Levy clearly wasn't keen on the deal, preferring to invest in younger players whose value might spiral - like Bale - rather than old lags with depreciation stamped all over their foreheads. 'Arry won the day and got his man, but Levy had his card marked from that point forward.
The Parker groupies will again make their case for the ever spinning action figure, but AVB didn't rate him and Wenger has never shown any interest. Why? Because the guy is so limited.
QPR fans should be rejoicing at the news that Parker has opted for Fulham - because as those legs get older, the injuries are likely to multiply and Scotty's all action style is going to be more and more difficult to maintain.
