Troy Parrot is a player we’ve been looking at over the last few days. Now it gets worse. Beyond the unkind stats, we have first-hand opinions from fans who’ve had the misfortune to watch him play for Millwall.
CONTEXT Yesterday Troy Parrott only managed a rate of 43% success in respect of everything he did, in 63-minutes for Millwall. In just 30-minutes for Norwich City against Barnsley, Skipp’s success rate was 88%.
Are you telling me that a man with talent, suddenly plays like his shoelaces are tied together, because he’s playing in a side that aren’t very good?
Yet some Spurs fans believe there is something there, a reason to challenge Mourinho. The reaction below was typical.
A blog today ran a piece that was highlighting how some fans were disgruntled with José’s recent comments: “And, honestly, I don’t know if I should say it or not, the players that I feel are more talented in the academy are not the eldest ones. They are very young,” carried here by TeamTalk.
The problem, as ever does not lie with Mourinho or some peculiar, invented prejudice; the boy simply isn’t good enough. This piece from FootballLeagueWorld today carries quotes from Millwall fans who’ve already seen enough of Parrott.
Parrott’s Millwall loan hasn’t shown even the faintest glimmer of hope, let alone success. His performance against Bristol City was extremely poor, again.
