Not long after his significant exclusion from the England squad to face Egypt on Wednesday, Bobby Zamora has received more praise from yet another section of the footballing world.
As his side prepare for our clash at the Cottage, Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has claimed his London side made a big mistake when selling hitman Zamora in 2004.
Then manager David Pleat, who was in temporary charge at White Hart Lane, let Bobby slip through his hands by selling him as part of a deal which brought Jermain Defoe the other way.
At the time the deal seemed pretty decent for Spurs and Zamora's departure went wholly unnoticed.
Now though, as the striker replicates some of the finest form of his career, people are finally standing up and taking notice of the forward who, in all honesty, offers everything you could ever want in a target man.
Despite the fact BZ never hit it off at Spurs, scoring only one goal in his brief stint, Redknapp feels the lad had always shown signs of being a quality footballer.
'Tottenham let Zamora go too quickly,' stated the former Portsmouth gaffer.
'He was a terrific schoolboy footballer at West Ham but then he disappeared out of the game.'
'I was manager of West Ham at the time and Frank Lampard Snr used to tell me what a good player Zamora was as a kid. But he stopped playing football and West Ham let him go.'
Despite a reserved dislike of Harry Redknapp following his antics at Portsmouth, I do feel his words are pretty truthful and that, coming from such a respected and wise football coach, Zamora should take his words warmly.
