As a two-time FA Cup winner and member of the Boys of 86, legendary Irons goalkeeper Phil Parkes knows all about having plenty to play for at the end of the season – but he fears that this is what could happen to the class of 2018 as well, but not in a good way.
Writing exclusively for “Blowing Bubbles magazine”:http://www.blowing-bubbles.co.uk/ , Parkes admits he is worried by the club’s current predicament, and that the fixture list may not have done them any favours this month.
“At the start of March, I felt three more wins would be enough to keep us up but now it’s going to be tight. Fighting for your lives to stay in the league is a horrible position to be in.”
Parkes has strong opinions about the current strained relationship between fans and the club’s owners, which he does not shy away from sharing, and says everything else should take a backseat to ensure the team stays in the Premier League.
As well as Parkes’ views, former team-mate George Parris gives his take on the current state of things at the London Stadium in his regular column, and Blowing Bubbles’ team of reporters bring you the latest news on all things claret and blue, including an assessment of this winter’s transfer comings and goings – or the lack of them – the future of the Bobby Moore statue, how to repair the damage of the Tony Henry scandal, and how Michail Antonio can recover the form that has made him such a big success in recent years.
All of this and a brutally honest interview with former Irons midfielder Keiron Dyer – and why he thinks he will go down as the worst signing in club history – can be found in the latest edition of Blowing Bubbles magazine, “Out now”:http://www.blowing-bubbles.co.uk/
