Hodgson - Striking Duo Making Progress

Hodgson - Striking Duo Making Progress

Great goal scoring partnerships are not made overnight, they take time to mature, to gel and to come to fruition.

The combined fee paid for Andrew Johnson and Bobby Zamora was something in the region of £15 million and perhaps because of the significant outlay we`re expecting too much too soon.

Rome wasn`t built in a day the saying goes so perhaps we should be showing a little more patience and giving the duo time to get to grips with playing with each other.

Matters were not helped by the fact that Johnson missed a few games through injury and then had to serve a suspension, any momentum was lost as Roy Hodgson had to put in to place a plan B.

But, the main man himself, Roy Hodgson, is seeing signs that Zamora and Johnson can become a good partnership and after the Sunderland game he had this brief snippet to give away,

"I thought Johnson and Zamora combined reasonably well - there are signs that they are beginning to find each other."

Let`s all hope that vital breakthrough, a breakthrough that sees Johnson get off the mark, comes at Fratton Park this Sunday.

One goal from either of them could spark it all off.

far too long?!? they've played 3 1/2 games together!! I still have faith. Zamora is incredibly smart and as soon as AJ links up with Z-man its all gonna be Rose!

i dont think they have gelled yet i think aj plays too wide z man and aj should be playing off one another in and around the penalty area, then we will see plenty of goals

Zamora was so dangerous in pre-season I'm convinced he can be our Heskey, getting the odd goal and plugging the gap left by McBride. AJ.. I'm sure its a confidence thing with him, he is a proven goalscorer who just needs to get one and then watch the floodgates open!
