I’ve been a relatively long-standing advocate of Scott Parker. He’s been a bit unfortunate throughout his career, and has only really gained recognition after his time at West Ham, and so it’s nice to see that he has been made England captain. Regardless of your view on his lack of international caps or concerns that Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard is a much more qualified candidate, you can’t help but feel happy for the man.

It was only the Carling Cup, the one that nobody cares about; easy to win, irrelevant, the cup almost embarrassingly slight. The League Cup is certainly nothing to shout about.
