Fulham - A Replacement for Zamora?

With the news that we suspect Bobby Zamora will be out for at least a month, speculation mounts as to whether Roy Hodgson will be forced into the transfer market.

After picking up his shoulder injury, Zamora joins Diomansy Kamara on the growing injury list which leaves Roy, currently with Andrew Johnson, David Elm and Erik Nevland as his out and out strikers. Although we should point out that Clint Dempsey is more than capable of operating as a striker and has, in the past, scored regularly from that position.

But, with the January transfer window open, there is an opportunity Roy to enter the transfer market and sign cover, even on a temporary basis, a striker. Roy, though, remains cagey over such matters and is quoted in the papers this morning as having remarked,

"I`ll have to look at it but we are not in a situation where we are looking to splash loads of money around."

"If someone is available at the right price and if they could help us out, we would be interested. But there are two big ifs in that."

At Vital Fulham we`d hazard a guess that we`ll be erring towards a wait and see and who becomes available tact, don`t you!

Which is why I think we’ll probably get Stefano Okaka with a bit of luck, but all the talk of a £11m pound offer for Roman Pavlyuchenko is just a load of paper bollox.
Agreed, Oldwolf. He's not as good as Bobby anyway, never mind being worth twice what we paid for him!
i agree to that... roman should not come, but okaka hopefully will...
Yeah. I can see Okaka being very beneficial. Pavlyuchenko would be one too many though!
leave the Russki alone - he's bad news!

I would think we could probably pick up Caicedo from Man City or Voronin from Liverpool on loan. Perfectly serviceable strikers that are not likely to get a game for their home clubs.
Caciedo moved out on loan somewhere yesterday, but he would have been nice. I'd like to get in Okaka and leave it at that. I wouldn't like to see Roy panic buying...it's not his style.
true KB I wonder what roy has up his sleave
truth sayer ffc
Oh Roy Leave that YID alone......all and all its just another brick s**t player (Pink Floyd) hahahahaha
Well, Caicedo and Voronin are both off the market, now. How 'bout Federico Macheda from ManU. The loan talk regarding him is starting to ramp up.
truth sayer ffc
