There were few dissenting voices when Spurs bought Scott Parker on the last day of the summer 2011 transfer window and if anybody was in any doubt, the signing from West Ham soon silenced any questions over his worth to the team.
In fact, if these sorts of polls are anything to go by, Scott has won the player of the month award so many times on the club’s official website that he remains a strong candidate to lift the supporters’ player of the season trophy.
However, we already had a pretty good right sided defensive midfielder at the club and on Sunday, Sandro showed that he can do everything Scott can – and possibly more.
The Brazilian snuffed out everything that Blackburn threw at us – which admittedly wasn’t much – and he was there at the beginning of some of our best moves. In short, he was back to his best and while Parker isn’t incapable of finding the net, Sandro’s thunderbolt off the bar hinted at more of an attacking threat.
Yesterday we asked the question as to who was the man of the match. Personally I thought Sandro would win it ahead of Walker but I thought it would be a closer vote – the Brazilian polled over 83% of your votes.
It seems hard to justify picking Scott ahead of Sandro based on that performance but could there possibly be room for both players in the side?
