    I don't really care what anyone else thinks or says on this subject. He left four months too early, simple as that. CAFC would have received the same amount (or more) in May, he would have received the same (or more) in wages and he would have been part of the England squad in Portugal that summer. And we would not even been having this debate, as he would be a hero to 95% of Addicks fans.  
    Ah yes great debating there.
    It's not up for debate Daz. It's a statement. Take it or leave it, it has been the case for 15 years, and will be until I draw me last breath...     
    Its an opinion though, so of course its up for a debate. In your opinion he left 4 months too early, others disagree like myself. 

    I was gutted he left when he did, but cant really blame him for it. As others have stated he could easily have got injured, lost form or whatever, time as a footballer sometimes is precious and you need to take the opportunity.

    Think of Shearer who could have played for Man United and won alot of trophies, he most certainly regrets it now even if he has earnt a great living and still does. Adored by the magpies etc. but i am sure he still regrets not joining them, might have even said it at some point. 

    Ultimately i respect your opinion @Algarveaddick
    but its always one we will agree to disagree.  
    He’s right though ;-)
  • Nothing wrong with a young English coach getting an opportunity.

    Good luck Scotty Parker! Hope he does well.

    This one is a fact. 

    As I am still breathing, I stand by every word I wrote. Parker could have been hit by a meteorite, or contracted beri-beri, but he didn't. ;)    
  • I so hope this Fulham effort goes tits up the greedy c...

    Thought I'd stumbed upon the Karlan Grant thread by mistake reading this (apart from the " Cafc whould have rec'd more money..."

    Seems like it happens to us too often.....


    It's not just Charlton though is it? Ipswich got relegated and we got Herman H and Matt Holland for under £1m each and later Darren Bent for £2.5m. All that lot for under £5m from the same club.  

    Didn't Parker's wages go from £15k/week to £45k/week when he moved to Chelsea?

  • Parker and his side kick Arter have never once said "Thank you" to the Academy. McGinty didn't look over his shoulder before scooting  off to Man U only to become the last player shown the door by Sir Alex.

    Wasn’t Arter released? Why would he thank them?
  • What's with the Parker love-in at the BBC lately? Completey over the top and unnecessary.
