Miss World, Mr Universe… it’s time to meet Mr West Ham!
Scott Parker, ladies and gentlemen!
Possibly the most disturbing turn of phrase ever featured on Big Brother came in last year’s series, when one of the now forgotten inmates revealed that she wasn’t a “suck arse”. As conjured images go, it’s about as revolting as they come. And yet, her point was valid. No one likes a teacher’s pet… or, at least, we hope that’s what she meant.
Hence, it will surely be a rather trying few weeks for Scott Parker over at West Ham, as his teacher’s pet status was confirmed by the club’s owner, David Sullivan. He said this (as reported in the Daily Mail):
“If we get the right bid we will sell any player, apart from Parker.”
“He is not for sale and has several years left on his contract, intimating on several occassions that he wants to stay.”
“He is Mr West Ham.”
Words which will surely come as a bit of a shock to the England contingent of Robert Green, Matthew Upson, and Carlton Cole. Not to mention Mark Noble, who probably thought that he was Mr West Ham.
Anyway, for the right money, they’re all off. But where should they go?
Let us know with a comment.
