    So as a serious review

    - His turnaround of the team's form
    - Their organization, pressing and energy
    - The quick onboarding of the loan players

    If he can actually add keeping them up this season, he would have done really well.

    For such a young coach, to galvanise that team and to get them firing and believing in him and the idea there is a chance of surviving is kudos to him.

    I hope they stay up.

    (As it's a cracking away day;))

    Would be a great achievement to keep them up, ideally not at Brighton’s expense though as I like what Potter is trying to do with them too.

    if he is successful the challenge may be getting the players back on loan again as their stock will have risen and the host clubs may want to keep them or Fulham won’t be able to buy them all. I always think it’s a good measure if a manager to see him perform at two different clubs or build different teams and the latter may be an accelerated challenge for Parker.

    He's definitely had some clutch moments with Fulham, the promotion last season and if he manages to help them escape this one.

    I think the problem might be Fulham's re Parker, could see a more established mid tier PL club going for him next season.

    Not considered that - he seems quite an emotional chap so I’d just assumed he’d stay with Fulham whatever happens at the end of the season!

    to be fair most of the mid table teams seem quite secure or are over achieving, I guess Newcastle could be a pull as he played for them and Palace who would give a solid foundation for any new manager if Roy retires (and keeps him in London?

    Palace is certainly an option if a poisoned chalice, Roy is out of contract at end of season, but so are more than a dozen palace players. Complete rebuild.

    Given the options around in the Prem, Levy won't have failed to notice his work. If, Jose fails to win a trophy and get top 4, I think Levy will cut him loose in favour of a project building younger coach. Parker fits that bill perfectly.

    First goal in 49 games for Traore... looks like Parker has the Dr Tottenham credentials nailed down.

    Is Parker an exponent of the dark arts?!

    I like that, should be a double though, whilst the distraction with the gloves is happening someone else should be tying his boot laces together.
