Parker Gets Shearer's Job
The ex-Chelsea midfielder, who was signed by Graeme Souness last summer, is just the man Glenn Roeder sees as the first United captain to lift silverware since Bob Moncur in 1969.
Roeder: 'I have been captain of Newcastle United and I know what a great honour it is, and what is needed to fill the role. In Scott Parker and Shay Given I see two players who can do the job.
'Scott will be captain and Shay vice-captain.'
Can Parker do what Alan Shearer never did, and lift a cup for the Toon?
