Absolutely love this guy atm.
That's why I gave him my highest rating for this match - the glue that helps to keep the midfield ticking over (mixing my metaphors here). Bring in Sandro and you'll have the best defensive midfield pairing in the EPL - simple as.
what a player!
finally we got someone who is agressive + can tackle good and pass and hold the ball well.
that all combined was exactly what palacios and jenas couldnt do
Also parker is suprior to sandro in that aspect.
look how often he goes back to take the ball which allows modric to push further up the pitch..... thats usually something modric always does.
you are having a laugh capello if u put back lampard in the lineup for england instead of parker.
There was a lot of criticism about Parker, from a lot of members including myself. Not anymore. What a player he has been. and for 5m too.
I'm suprised by his close control of the ball. Both feet he just traps it with ease. Love the guy already.
I would expect more players to play such simple and yet very effective football.. well done for him..
I think Scott Parker's energy is infectious and me thinks it's one of the reasons why we one 2 straight games.
This guy is quickly becoming one of my favorite players. Hope this continues till the end of the season!
He has done nothing less than what I expected. There was a reason he got the award he did. Any time I watched him playing for West Ham last year he was everywhere, doing the job of at least two players.
If this guy was 26, I honestly think Levy would have grabbed that 40 million in a heartbeat for Modric. 4-2-3-1 with Sandro and Parker holding and VDV attacking. Beautiful + 40 million in the bank. Chyeah.
I've been championing for him since the start of the transfer window. Diarra may be a better player than him but the off-field qualities Parker brings to us would be much more. Parker himself admitted that he learnt a great deal from Claude Makelele himself. I hope Sandro and Thudd can also learn from Parker's game and improve themselves. He can play here until he retires for all I'm concerned. He can become a great mentor and character to have around. Certainly beats other triffic players like Phil Neville.
Yeah, I was one of those who really wondered why we needed him. It seemed like a classic Harry move to me and I mean that in the Phil Neville, Joe Cole sense so it's not a compliment. But damn. He's proved me wrong. Top class. So glad we got him and yeah, for 5 million he's a steal.
Also, got to say it: How is it that of Liverpool, Arsenal, and Spurs the club with the least worrisome midfield somehow snagged the best midfielder to move to one of those clubs this summer? I mean, if you're Liverpool and you're getting deals done in June and July, how on earth do you say "yeah, 20 million for Jordan Henderson and 10 for Charlie Adam but not 5 for Scott Parker." And Arsenal is even funnier. Looking objectively at that team, Parker addresses almost every single issue they have save the vacuum at CB. How does Wenger not sign him this summer? I mean, I'm as thrilled to benefit from the stupidity of Comolli and Wenger as anyone, but honestly, how does that happen?
Scotty P was dominant. Glad Adebayor had his shirt tucked in for solidarity.
Someone needs to make a Modric compilation from this game...my word that will be sexy.
