Fulham - Hamburg Countdown (May 5th)

Fulham - Hamburg Countdown (May 5th)

As we continue our Europa League Final countdown, it gives us an opportunity to hear what our leading goals scorer, this season, has to say about his injury and the fine Europa League run.

Bobby Zamora`s scoring exploits, in the competition, have made Europe perfectly aware of his attributes, but an Achilles injury threatens his participation in the fixture.

In the second leg of the semi-final against Hamburg it was clear, from about the twenty minute mark that all was not well with Bobby with the forward eventually succumbing to the problem around the hour mark.

Roy Hodgson has already expressed his doubts about Bobby being fit for the final implying that the medical staff will have to work around the clock on him. But Bobby is more optimistic,

"It`s so sore and I`ve not been training at the same intensity, but I just hope the swelling will ease off before the final."

"I`ve known about the condition for a while and it has been really sore, but there`s time to improve before the final."


Clearly, a fit Bobby Zamora will be a huge advantage for a Fulham side that have revelled in the role of under-dog this season. Talking about Europe Bobby has enthused about the Thursday night speciality,

"Playing in Europe has been a big stage for the club."

"It singles us out, it`s the only football that`s on TV on a Thursday night. It`s great for our club to go out there and put in performances like we have."

"To beat the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk, Wolfsburg and Hamburg as well as Manchester United and Liverpool in the league is something special."

"In the last two years the manager has built a new team and last year was a learning curve, taking time for players to gel. This year we have been more the finished article.


Could that finished article see our hopes culminate in lifting our first trophy and a European one at that?

This site certainly thinks so!
