Fulham - Zamora Hits Back!

We English can be a cruel race!

Last season Bobby Zamora gave us some special performances capped with some very special goals, as the months passed by the clamour for Fabio Capello to give him a run-out for England grew by the day.

Sadly, just as that breakthrough beckoned and possibly the chance to go to South Africa 2010, an Achilles injury ruled Bobby out. Now in the aftermath of our inglorious exit from 2010, Capello merely pointed out that Zamora would be give a chance, along with several youngsters, to restore our battered pride.

Cue howls of derision from the English media, the same media that were championing his cause not many weeks ago. Naturally, Bobby has heard how these news hounds have responded and is quoted in the media this morning a shaving said,

"People can read into that what they want - I just let that sort of reaction wash over me."

"It is flattering to hear the England manager single me out."

"It`s nice to be linked with that and it`s a big target for me once I`m 100 per cent fit again."

"I`m the sort of player who wouldn`t even give a thought to being in the squad until I actually got a phone call from Fabio Capello."

"But the other day the words were straight out of his mouth, so that was good. There`s always speculation about who might be in the squads but I`d rather hear it from the manager himself."

"Joe Bloggs might be laughing at the thought of me at the next World Cup but listen that`s four years away, and there`s another big tournament before that. I feel I have four more years left at the top level."

"I`m a hard worker, I`ve got a tough mentality from coming up the hard way and I`m always thinking about how to move on to the next step."


Go prove those sceptics wrong Bobby, we know you`re every bit as good, if not far better, than the likes of Peter Crouch, Jermaine Defoe and Darren Bent!

Zamora has been great in Hodgson's system, but no one can predict what his role or productivity will be under the next manager.
