One of the least surprising departures was confirmed yesterday with Scott Parker heading out of White Hart Lane after two seasons at Tottenham. Parker was signed from West Ham by Harry Redknapp in 2011 and seemed likely to reunite with his former boss at QPR but stays in the Premiership after Fulham swooped to capture his signature.

Parker played 62 games for Spurs but was far more effective in his first season at the club and with new arrivals at the Lane, the 32 year old was always destined to be one of the odd men out. With the added competition of Sandro heading back to full fitness, Scott should certainly enjoy far more game time at Craven Cottage in 2013-14.

The midfielder now joins up with former Spurs boss Martin Jol and will line up this season with fellow old boys Dimitar Berbatov, Adel Taraabt and Darren Bent.

But the main incentive for Scott Parker is the fact that he is able to stay and compete in the Premiership during World Cup year and with that we wish him well as he battles to get back into the England set up.

  1. All the best Scotty. At least we know your extremely unlikely to come back and haunt us with a goal against us in the next Spurs-Fulham fixture! (cough)

    • Fulham must have one of the oldest teams in the EPL? Will be plenty of familiar faces when we play them alright,they will want to prove a point. Hopefully we can prove they aren’t good enough for Spurs anymore. Although I wish them well against the arse and any other team they play COYS

  2. A big thanks Scotty did yourself and Spurs proud. I hope you do well and get into the England set up
    Thanks again Scotty, a player with a big heart and a strong engine

  3. So much time for Scotty Parker. An excellent role model, especially off this pitch, for any younger fans.
    The man always give 100% wherever he plays. Just gutted we didn’t sign him when he came back down from Newcastle.
    Anyways, really hope he does well for Fulham – starting this weekend!!

  4. great in his first season but not the same player last season after his Injury but a good servant wish him well thought the feeder club would have bought him back lol, but his days were always numbered with sandro coming back and the new signings all we now need to do is get rid of waste of space adebayor
