I read Sunderland are offering 4 million pounds for Scott Parker and that amount should be sufficient to sign him. I think Parker would be a great signing for Fulham, just what the doctor ordered. Offer 5 million for him. I think he is a very good player who could only help Fulham. He is hard working and a good passer from the midfield. Sell Sidwell for 2 million and sign Parker. Any thoughts?
A bit old and injury prone

Parker a great fetcher and carrier, but we need a playmaker. Huddlestone if fit has a tremendous range of passing, also has played centre back in an emergency. Class footballer, I think problems with weight and work rate overstated, really hope he signs for FFC

Definitely sign him. Quality player.
England CM not long ago. Exactly the position we need strength. He may be regarded as being injury prone and old - fine, he's 32 (33 in October), but I think his only real 'injury hit' season was last season.
Probably worth a gamble for £4m. Surely we can sell ourselves to him better than Sunderland can...
I think we'd get at least two solid seasons from him.

Sorry guys but £4million+ for scott parker does not make sense. The guy IS injury prone and Spurs have seen the light. Why else would they sell him? Let him go to Sunderland.
(Posted under wrong heading although I do think Sidwell should be on his way.)

I would take a risk for £4m. If and i know its a big IF he stays fit then he is the sort of leader we have been lacking all season. A midfeld player who can go box to box and put his foot in and play a bit. Ok he is just coming over the hill but wasnt Murphy when we got him, he will want to put in a good perfomance to try and stay in the England picture so lets take a risk.
Think we should be raiding Spurs this summer, Huddlestone, Parker, Defoe, Assou Ekott all look out of favour and would all do a turn for us.
Only problem is they would no doubt want kacaniclik in return who i see as being a star for us next season in a forward role.

sign Parker and we might as well rebrand the Cottage as a full time retirement home.

Parker is better than any central midfielder currently on Fulham's squad, although I do admit he is often injured. I would prefer to sign Huddlestone, but don't think he will be available since he played so much towards the end of the season and provides Tottenham with excellent cover. I'd take any of the Spurs players who may be available, what about Livermore? Assou Akato? Dafoe would be a perfect poacher to partner with Berbatov.

Totally agree, I think he would shine the way Danny Murphy did. Problem is that Jol wants Dutch, German players to build his squad around, think he has grown tired of English/established premiership types ... can't blame him on that really ...
