Looks like Parker is going to West Ham for £7 mill, and that has got to be good business. What is surprising is that on the BBC forum , Newcastle fans do not seem concerned that he is leaving. The consensus seem to be that he did not play to the level of his first season at Newcastle and appeared at the latter part of last season to be unhappy and uncommitted. This could be a Parker trait as we all know how he behaved when things did not quite go his way.
Parker gets my vote as the best and most complete player, ever to wear a Charlton shirt.
