Scott Parker on a downward trend?

Last year Scott Parker was arguably one of our best players.Parker was full of running, showed plenty of enthusiasm and was always prepared to put his body on the line. Generally speaking, Parker seemed to operate better alongside Modric, rather than being along side Sandro as well. However, as the season came to an end his performances (along with others) petered out.

Now personally, I feel he was overplayed last year and feel that this has definitely hampered his preparations for this season. I know he has recently come back from injury and AVB has been wise in returning him slowly to the first team set up. But can Parker still be considered a full time member of the Spurs first XI?

I am not liking the Dembele / Parker partnership at the moment. It is far too pedestrian and slow. Parker offers very little going forward and his defensive presence, interceptions and tackles cannot be compared to that of Sandro's. Has Parker's reign come to an end at Spurs? Definitely not, he is still a very useful player to have, but he should not command a regular starting spot, even with Sandro out injured.

So then if not Parker, who? I suppose in many ways it depends on the opposition, the pitch conditions and it also depends on our formation as well. Can Hudd come along, run around and finally get a haircut? Can Jake come in and establish himself? Can Siggy partner Dembele? What if Jan or Caulker pushed up as a DM? Can Tom Carroll surf his way into contention? Or will we be content with Parker running them around in circles. Literally.
