Lets Kick Parker Into Touch

Right, I'm having my twopenneth. Selling Parker was always going to be the biggest mistake in recent Charlton history, Curbs and the board no doubt realised this but were put in such a position by Spotty, his agent and Chelski that they felt they had no choice but to sell him. As far as I'm concerned, thats it, end of. Curbs is a manager that - as has been demostrated - will freeze out a player for nothing more than a few heated words. I can't honestly see Curbs ever wanting Scott back at the club and rightly so, no matter how good he was for us, he's burnt his Stamford bridges, now lets move on. If we're in the market for ANOTHER midfielder and Charlton old-boy, why not Bowyer, who is a better player and who has been wasted in wide positions at Leeds and Newcastle?

you can't honestly think Bowyer is better than Parker, surely?

No question and if anyone thinks otherwise then they quite obviously never saw him play in a Charlton shirt.

they're not strictly comparable in terms of Charlton form because Bowyer left after one full season, whereas Parker was nurtured over several. However Bowyer today is a shadow of his former self, has not settled at any of his clubs, and has lost the enthusiasm that made Leeds bid for him in the first place.
