I just can't see why Parker can't sit deep, where i think he's much better. Butt's position and allow Emre top boss the midfield - which he is so good at.

 

The coaching staff need to spot that Emre is better getting forward and coach Parker to hold properly.

Glenn needs to mould Parker into more of a Butt-type player - I believe Parker is the better player, he just needs to be told to sit deeper a bit more to let Emre have more of a free reign ahead of him.

 

EDIT - Aww, you deleted Melan!

 

Well, for all I know he might read the board - I didn't want to look stupid.

Parker has the talent to be a very good all-round midfielder imo - passes accurately enough, knows how to time his runs into the box and definitely can defend, but he really has to sort out the bad habits he picked up at Chelsea. Its up to him now to decide which type of player he really wants to be.

If Duff also wants to take a break that's fine.

 

... and Shola of course

 

Why on earth do people say these things?

 

Do you understand how thin and injury-prone our squad is?

 

Clearly not, since you actually wish injury on players.

 

Getting rid of them won't help anything, managing them properly would.

He nearly scored today with that cheeky shot that might have been a cross.

 

His pirouttes definitely don't help on the attack, but our pace only really came to the fore today when they started committing more bodies forward.  In that situation, Parker was definitely noticeable by his absence.  Harry Redknapp seemed to open it up a bit second half and that let us in.  Against a stacked two banks of four in an even game, I'm not sure it would matter whether it was Butt or Parker. Neither has the ability to really make things happen on a regular basis.  Parker does a lot of great last ditch stuff and also chips in with the odd goal.

 

If you want to point the finger, Zoggy did nothing first half too.  Great second half though and nice "assist", for those who like American terminology.

Don't you think we're better off with Martins and Dyer/Sibiersky than with Shola up front?
