Lomas expects Parker departure

Reserve team manager Steve Lomas has revealed that he expects Scott Parker to leave the club in the coming weeks.

Lomas, speaking to Sky Sports this morning admitted that he expects the England midfielder to move to pastures new following West Ham's relegation, despite professing a desire to see Parker in the claret and blue shirt next season.

"We'd love to keep Scotty Parker, he's been fantastic," said Lomas. "He's got nothing to be ashamed of with West Ham going down.

"He was not almost a one-man team but he set such high standards. I don't think any West Ham fan would begrudge him going but we'd love to see him stay and help us up this year - but I can't see that happening."

Lomas also confirmed that he expected club captain Matthew Upson - who is out of contract this summer - to find a new club before the beginning of next season.

"In terms of Matty I don't see it," he continued. "I think he's out of contract and looking for another challenge."

''Good luck Scott, you deserve to be playing at the highest level. It's a pity though that Matthew Upson never faced up to the challenge he faced at West Ham. It is farcical in the extreme that he was/is the (supposed) captain, none of the attributes necessary for that position have ever been exhibited by him.

Perhaps if he had half the passion and desire of Scott Parker we wouldn't have thrown away so many leads in games we should have won. I am glad he is out of contract; he has offered very little to the club the past few seasons (or England for that matter), he appears to think himself better than he actually is.

Whilst Matthew may be giddy with self-delusion, he will find it difficult to sustain that misbelief to anyone who bore witness to his performances under two different managers.''
