As we all know, West Ham has been relegated. This means there is not a chance in hell Scott Parker is going to join them in the Championship next season. He's tough and multi-talented, the kind of midfielder we haven't really had since Vieira (not that i'm saying he is a Vieria). He could cover multiple roles in our midfield (most importantly, as another enforcer since we are thin there) and would be a serious upgrade over the likes of Denilson.
I predict (not that it is hard) that multiple premiership teams are going to be fighting for his services. So the question I put forth to you is, should we be in that conversation? Keep in mind the possibility that Cesc may not stay.
