Scott Parker - Player of the Year
Scott Parker will tonight collect his Football Writers Association Player of the Year award at a ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel.
With West Ham firmly rooted to the bottom of the table Parker's achievement is even more amazing. Playing in a team that has been struggling all season Parker has stood out.
Sadly it looks likely that the talismanic midfielder will not be at West Ham next year. Speaking to The Evening Standard Parker says,
"I have the utmost respect for the fans. Yes, I'm winning awards because I'm playing the best football of my career. Why? Because I feel wanted here and it feels like home.
"I'm like every player, I want to be playing at the highest level I can and in the Premier League. I don't know what the future holds for me but, for the moment, I'm still keeping everything crossed that West Ham stay up. Otherwise . . ."
