Fulham - Zamora Woe!
Sat watching the encounter, at the Britannia Stadium, on Sky Sports last night, I received a text message from Vital Fulham member, Al Billy
Apart from re-iterating how cold it was and blaspheming as to how the fifty or so travelling supporters who had braved the icy conditions to venture north couldn`t believe we`d shipped three goals, inside forty-five minutes, against a team who`d scored only once in six Premier League games, he said there was a shared look of disbelief as Bobby Zamora was carried away on a stretcher.
Another text message confirmed that, despite the ongoing fight back that saw us almost snatch a point, the general topic of conversation amongst the hardy souls related to the extent of Bobby`s injury.
Zamora, as we`re all perfectly aware, has been at the top of his form in recent months and his skills have helped us into the position whereby we`re comfortable in the Premier League and still in the Europa League. Our fears relate to the severity of the injury.
If the shoulder injury is serious it`ll hurt two fold.
Firstly, it`ll hamper the team as most of our best work seems to involve Zamora in one way or another and secondly because a serious amount of time away from the rigour of first team action could see any faint hopes of an international call-up ended.
At the time of writing we await news on the injury, let`s hope it`s not as bad as first feared.
As for Al Billy I could have done without the text message in the early hours of the morning telling me he`d finally got home!
