Back For Spurs

Gianfranco Zola claims that Scott Parker and Radoslav Kovac should both be fit for next Saturday's game against T#ttenham:
"Hopefully Radoslav Kovac will be ready and hopefully it will be the same for Scott Parker. They are important players for me. If they are back it will make a difference," the West Ham manager said.

Well, having Scott Parker back in the team would be a great boost especially for Saturday's away game against London rivals Sp@rs !

Iain Dale and a blog called Soccer Statistics have a post on Scott Parker today that shows the worthiness of our central midfielder (who has already been so kind to commit his future to West Ham United by signing a new contract until 2013 in February!).
If you ever had any doubt that Scotty Parker is England class, read THIS:

Scott Parker: The Complete Central Midfielder
"Parker is showing his offensive decisiveness and comfort on the ball, getting on the ball more not only more than any other players on his team, but also putting him in the top 10 of all EPL players in passes. Parker is making 61 passes per game (85% success). Never in his career before this season had Parker shown the maturity to get on the ball at his present rate and the intelligence to make the simple, smart delivery to his teammate.
More impressive, Parker this season ranks #1 in the EPL in tackles. He is making 6.3 tackles per game, for the first time beating out the all-star combo of Javier Mascherano and Jon Obi Mikel.
Parker is the aggresive and intelligent midfielder that no opponent ever wants to play against. He is the player who is not only never afraid to go in to the tackle, but who is always in the right place to make the tackle.
Offensively, he makes sure gets into space to get onto the ball and consistently makes the right decision when in possession, keeping the ball in West Ham’s play and contributing probably more than any other player to his team’s success this season.
Scott Parker is everything Gianfranco Zola says he is. He has matured into the outstanding player on his team one of the outstanding players in the EPL and deserves an England call-up."
