Scotty Parker

It was good to see Scotty bring Fulham back up to the Prem how long for I don't know and at that point, he could end up getting sacked -this is the way that it is for football managers today and after seeing what happened to Pearson at Watford absolutely anything could happen in this time when the life of a premiership manager is very unstable every team wants success and they said last night the EFL playoffs were worth £168 million pounds. so its all big bucks and I thought Parker was absolutely spot on with his tactics even Fulhams 1st goal. He has done his prem apprenticeship and the badges and in a couple of years down the line it would not surprise me to see him as West Hams manager- don't get me wrong I think Moyes is doing ok at the moment, but let's see if he lasts to the end of the new season. Parker was always one of my favourites as a player he showed guts and determination, and a great leader another premiership manager who came from our team that has had a great season, you know who the other one is but we won't go into that.

lol, you are right. football is merciless. remember the Fulham manager couple of seasons ago who got them back in the prem and was promptly dispatched in favour of disastrous Ranieri? hopefully Parkers achievement will carry him through the difficult moments that are bound to come for them next season. I could see Brentford fairy tale of them getting up and then being canon fodder and going straight down by Christmas. not sure with Fulham. got some experience there from couple of seasons ago and mitrovic is a top scorer.

One of my favorite players was Parker, if he can get his team to battle the way he used to they stand a chance, but it will not be easy, for us too.
I hope they give him a fair crack at it he deserves it.

Agree... also one of my favourite players and for some reason on this chat site people in the past gave him a lot of grief, one plum called him The Magic Roundabout!

The only blemish in West Ham eyes was joining Spudz but playing in the Chumps league was not good for an England career. Deserved to be our captain.

he was good, but im not sure he is a 'great'. lets be honest in the couple of seasons he was with us, in a very poor side he was ok, not great imo. and he was never our captain, instead we had useless Upson I recall lol.
