Three time HOTY wins football’s biggest prize

Former Three-Time Hammer of the year Scott Parker has won the biggest prize in football in his first year as a football manager.

Fulham beat Brentford 2-1 in the Championship Playoff final at Wembley this evening despite Brentford doing the double over Fulham in the league this season.

Fulham’s promotion to the Premier League after just one season away will mean the twenty top-flight clubs will share £35m of  Fulham’s second-year parachute payment worth around £1.75m per club next season.

The dream is over for Brentford and they may now struggle to keep hold of West Ham transfer targets Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma as the Championship threatens to bring in a new £18m wage cap to the second tier of football in a post-pandemic world.

Scott Parker enjoyed four outstanding seasons at West Ham between 2007-11, making 129 appearances, scoring 12 goals and was named Footballer of the Year in 2011.

Well done Scotty!

  1. They were excellent all game, a well planned Worldy free kick to capitalise on keepers aggressive positioning, turned the game. Brentford couldn’t get in but Watkins did finally assist a consolation goal which he deserved for another hard working performance, probably his last for the club. Benrahma has shown to go missing in the big games, so his mindset has to be questioned bearing in mind he couldn’t hack it in Ligue 1. We should go all out for Watkins and Rico Henry was also great at full back.

  2. Congrats, thrilled for Parker! Though they do seem to play more fluid without Mitrovic tho is great off bench. Tneh will need to invest again but not 12 players 4-6 smart signings. And Byran a start in that game. I rate Rodak a lot too.

    But Brentford bottled it could of hot Auto. They have some talent I’d love Ankersen as DOF at 36 as done wonders there & at Midtjylland. Dasilva is Illford las I wonder of he likes West Ham 10 goals for DM not bad & LB cover & Jensen has been immense in mid since he came him. Or course the front 3 & Rico their keeper to Gaya.

  3. Benrahmas performance should flag up some warning signs, if he couldn’t get himself motivated for that match then that’s a worry. Should have a try for Watkins , he looks a prospect.

  4. I dont normally watch lower league football but did watch the play off final last night. Dont know anything about Benrahma or Watkins but from what i see last night i wasnt impressed. Like i say only see them for the first time last night so dont know how they have been all season but honestly cant see what all the hype is about
