Parker hails Berbatov display

Fulham midfielder Scott Parker was full of praise for team-mate Dimitar Berbatov following his side's 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

The Bulgarian striker assisted Steve Sidwell for the opening goal, before nonchalantly doubling the lead with a penalty nine minutes later, despite talk of him wanting an exit during the week.

Berbatov's agent had claimed that the 32-year-old would be looking for a January move, but he showed no signs of that and Parker hailed his display as the Cottagers claimed their first win in seven games.

"It was very good. We all know the quality he has," he told Sky Sports.

"He was exceptional again today and was on Wednesday.

"We all need to put in a shift and he's part of the team and we need to carry on from where we've left off today. We all knew how important today was, we put in a shift and got the three points.

"We needed to pick up some points. We had a good performance on Wednesday and followed up with a win."

The result marked Rene Meulensteen's first win in charge of Fulham, and goalscorer Sidwell thinks that the former Manchester United assistant has already made an impact at Craven Cottage.

"We've tried different formations since he's took charge," he said.

"There's versatility in the squad, we all put in a shift and hopefully it's working now."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
