Fulham - Zamora Woe!

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!

Not good. Seems similar to AJ's injury earlier on in the season. Only positive I can take from it is that we won't be fending off bids for him for the next few weeks...

Time for AJ to justify that huge transfer fee.
