West Ham should keep Adrian, says Parkes

Former West Ham shot-stopper Phil Parkes believes current reserve goalkeeper Adrian should be offered another two-year contract.

Writing his column for Blowing Bubbles Monthly, Parkes says the goalkeeping situation is one area of the squad Slaven Bilic need not worry about.

"The truth is, there are no great 'keepers out there," he said. "Many of them are much of the same with the exceptions of Ben Foster and Jack Butland. This means Slaven's not going to find anyone much better than what he has.

"I still believe Adrian has the potential to become a much better 'keeper than he is as he was quite a late starter and is still learning. Over the next couple of years he will get better - and I have a lot of faith in Darren Randolph too."

Elsewhere in the March issue of the popular monthly magazine, Blowing Bubbles chats to Trevor Morley on his time in east London, rumours about his sexuality and his new life living in Scandinavia.

Blowing Bubbles also argues that Robert Snodgrass will put Dimitri Payet to shame with his honest efforts and calls for the club to offer Slaven Bilic a new contract.

They also ask if Roman would have made us happy if he had bought West Ham, and if fan-favourite Adrian get another chance at the club?
