Should West Ham Rescue Scott Parker From Fulham?

It seems amazing doesn't it, that such a great player as Scott Parker can be relegated from the top division of English football THREE times in a - as yet unfinished - career. Anybody would think, looking at that record, that the guy wasn't that much cop!

Incredibly, despite helping Fulham to a next to bottom place finish in the Premier League, Parker was overlooked for this season's Player of the Year award. Maybe his team has to finish rock bottom to merit that accolade!

But now the poor guy is stranded in the Championship and we all know how Scotty hates to play in the second tier of English football. So surely, after giving such great service to West Ham, before being forced to request a transfer when - following our relegation - Spurs made a cut price bid, we should step in and rescue him.

It's the very least we can do for a player who loved the club so much that he signed a contract extension, securing a massive wage increase, a week after Spurs bought Van Der Vaart; poor Scotty delayed and delayed signing that contract, only for Wheeler Dealer 'Arry to let him down by switching his interest to the Dutchman at the last moment. And how did West Ham reward him for his loyalty? By getting relegated! Just like Charlton! And now Fulham!

So, let's forget all the other transfer targets and prioritise bringing a true West Ham legend back to Upton Park. True fans of the club - who lauded Parker's heroic efforts as we finished bottom of the Prem - should launch a "Bring Back Scotty" campaign without delay. We owe it to the guy. And let's name the Olympic Stadium after him when we make the move too!

Sorry we are already committed
according to Talksh*te
and the Daily Fail to naming the Olympic stadium after our two greatest managers.

@Arry Grant Stadium has a ring to it

The trouble is that we've been here before! We had the chance to bring him back before and he wasn't good enough then to move the club forward so I can't see him being good enough now! But having said that, still a great player that should never have left us. Couldn't see him being anything more than a squad player though.

Sorry, but he is just not good enough anymore: the years and injuries have caught up with him.

Not good enough to bring us forward? What planet are you on, apart from the arrival of Ravel the standard of football at upton park has been dire since he left, Scotty boy played positive football and would surely do a lot better at giving our attackers a chance than our current options. Imagine how creative him and Rav could be together, or even as like for like sub.

The inability to perceive even the crudest of irony is staggering!

Despite the nature of this condescending note, Scottie was certainly not Fulham's player of the season and rarely even finished a game. He still has class but just runs out of steam these days, last season just as we most needed him he had to be substituted!

If WHU want him back then that is up to them.

LOL some of the replies are outstanding! MY god I think the people that had any brains have perhaps stopped reading your article based on some of them lol, if they dont get your humour it will soon dawn on them

Oh by the way, agree with everything you say, kept and eye on him at Fulham and every manager he player under was asked to perform a different role, could not do any of the jobs asked.

Although I did see alot of tackles from behind leading to free kicks which lead to goals. Good to have you back HF

That bit about "true west ham fans"? Don't true west ham fans actually go to games rather than sit on their arses watching on tv?
