Former Toon Skipper Desperate For Move!
Published : 02 Jun 2011 11:49:39
Former Newcastle skipper Scott Parker has admitted it would be virtually impossible to continue his England career if he remains at West Ham. Scott Parker: "Not many players do get picked from the Championship. "That is just the way it is. "But it is too early to say exactly what is going to happen to me on a personal level. I am sure we will see over the next couple of months. "There is speculation but it is easy for me to block it out. "If I was 22 it would probably be a different story and my mind would be elsewhere. "Now I am quite experienced. I know how things work. "My aim is to be at Euro 2012 come this time next year. "I know there is a long way to go and things can change but if I can help in any way, that is what I will try and do. "I never felt like quitting England. My mentality was always to work hard and force my way in. "It was quite difficult not to be selected for the World Cup. After that I thought my chances would have been limited. "But the Wales game was a massive chance for me. I felt if I didn't perform in that game I would not have pulled on an England shirt again. "In football, especially at international level, when opportunities come along you have to grab them." A 'THANK YOU' TO FOOTYMAD READERS ...

FOREWORD BY FAIRS CUP HERO JOHN McNAMEE Sports Journalist Richie Everson: "At last a book that the fabulous Newcastle United fans can relate to. It's informative, all the facts and figures are there, plus the 120 match reports from all the fixtures ... but it is the articles by the supporters that amazed me. "I went to many of those games, and this is the only book I can honestly say 'hits the nail on the head'! "Yes we know the results and the scorers, but some of the facts in this book had me so wrapped up in it I couldn't put it down. "Was Benny Arentoft cup-tied when he played in the final?
