How did I know?
There I was yesterday calling for no more loans but how was I to know that crafty Parky had a right back hidden away in Sparrows Lane all week? Smuggled in under cloak and dagger Elliot Omozusi even played in the reserve friendly at home to Dagenham and Redbridge on Tuesday
under the pseudonym A. Trialist.
Hackney born 20-year old Omozusi is a free agent after being released from Fulham, who still hold his registration and he has signed a month's contract
as cover to injured pair Frazer Richardson and
Omozusi's only real time in the spotlight was a sending off for Fulham as an 18-year old in the Premier League playing against Reading and he twice played against us last season (left) whilst racking up 24 appearances for Norwich on loan. However the loan arranged by Glenn Roeder was subsequently scratched under Bryan Gunn and Omozusi returned to Craven Cottage. He has spent trial period's with both Sheffield United and Peterborough before being found at Sparrows Lane.
Parky meanwhile, a man accused of not having a Plan B, has suddenly this week developed a Plan C and D to cater for a spate of injuries. Question is will he start both Ikeme and Omozusi tomorrow? I would be surprised.
It was also disclosed today that Richard Murray has given Parkinson some additional security and no doubt reward for our excellent start to the season, a third over by the end of this weekend, by giving him a year's contract extension to expire at the end of 2010/11
. Well done Phil from someone who I admit was a long time antagonist.
