Fulham - Hodgson Sticks Up for Zamora!
I guess one day the man himself will sit down and have a chuckle about it!
After all it`s not every day that you miss a sitter from all of five yards and miss it so spectacularly!
If I recall right, one punter recently posted a thread after an article questioning where Bobby Zamora would be if he could score on a regular basis, to which another punter implied - he`d not be at Craven Cottage.
And they`re probably right, all that`s missing from his game is the ability to be a regular scorer, if it were something he could master or something he were to be born with I`ve no doubt he`d be pulling on the white shirt of England.
After the dramatic fight-back, from 2-0 down, at the City of Manchester Stadium, Roy Hodgson did his best, whilst entertaining the media to deflect attention away from the horror miss remarking,
"It was an horrific miss. It`s a pity as Bobby played so well. Unfortunately people who watch the match on TV will see the miss."
"But what they won`t see is the 96 minutes and 45 seconds in which he was magnificent."
"It did affect his confidence - but only for 10 minutes or so, But Bobby exemplified our character and resilience."
Precisely! Everyone makes mistakes and its human nature to gloat over them!
You`re still champion by us Bobby!
