Fulham - Two Talented Strikers!

Fulham - Two Talented Strikers!

Yesterday was the first opportunity Roy Hodgson had had to play his twin strike threat of Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson.

Purchased in the summer, Zamora from West Ham and Johnson from Everton, expectation levels were high around a just below full Craven Cottage.

The punters were keen to find out if Hodgson had spent well and if the two forwards could gel and prove to be a potent force in the Premier League.

Well on the evidence of that first glimpse, things look so sweet for us. if I had to select who played the better of the two I`d probably go for Zamora, perhaps because he`s got a little more match fitness under his belt.

After the game, Roy spoke about both players and had this to say about Bobby Zamora and that marvellous goal,

'Bobby has the ability to do things like that. He's got good feet but sometimes he has to be careful not to overdo it.'

'It came off for him that time and we've been working hard on him releasing the ball a little bit quicker to fit in with our style."

'It didn't surprise me that he pulled that goal off because we see it all the time in training. For a big man he has a lot of technical ability.'


If you ask me, I think the Bolton defenders are still wondering where the ball went as Bobby bamboozled them.

As for Johnson, Roy had this to say about selecting him,

'Johnson looked very hungry. The chairman has been anxious to see him after paying a lot of money for him.'

'The chairman wanted to see what this product was that he'd bought. We had to calm both the chairman and Andy down because Andy will play through injuries."

'We wanted to be 100% certain he'd be okay to play and would be fit mechanically because thigh strains can be difficult.'


I can`t wait until next week to see if they can keep this momentum going, can you?

I'd agree, I have every reason to think we'll finish top half this season if they both stay fit!

This side has a lot of potential, I just hope they can make it a reality. Roy certainly has proved to be a shrewd buyer and tactician. COYW!
