Parker Not Good Enough?

Lee Clark: "If Scott couldn't get into Chelsea's midfield it shows just how good they must be. Everyone knows what a great squad they've got and we know it's going to be a tough game for us on Saturday.
"We've got Lee Bowyer back now so that should give the manager plenty of options for Saturday. We're waiting on a few but hopefully we can get as many players as possible fit for the Chelsea game because we want to have a real good crack at them and show what we can do. We've won four games in a row now and we're starting to get players fit so things are going well for us at the moment.
"I know from playing against him for Charlton what a quality player Scott Parker is. Scott was more of a box-to-box player at Charlton but I think it just shows what an intelligent player he is that he's adapted so well. I'm amazed he hasn't got into the England squad yet. He's been playing so well for us this season he deserves to be in there."
Parker has not played for England since coming on as a substitute in a friendly in Sweden 20 months ago.
