Tottenham Hotspur fans have been ripping into former player and current Fulham boss Scott Parker following his comments ahead of tonight’s game.
The game was initially meant to be played in late December, only for it to be postponed due to positive tests in the Fulham camp, and the clubs only received notice of the new date on Monday. And whilst this wasn’t a huge deal for Spurs – who were scheduled to be playing anyway against Aston Villa – the sudden change hasn’t gone down well with the Fulham boss.
He called the decision to announce the game on such short notice ‘scandalous’, and that having their fixtures messed with like this wouldn’t happen to any of the big teams in the division.
Spurs fans ripped into him for his comments, saying that he should stop complaining and just get on with the task at hand:
“Must come as a terrible shock that a professional football team is expected to play football.”
Is this just sour grapes from Scott Parker?
If Parker is this surly about it pre-game, you do start to wonder what his reaction is going to be like if they don’t win the game.
