Fulham - It Wasn`t Malicious?

With Bobby Zamora having had surgery on his broken leg, all we can do is sit and wait out the long months before he returns to the fold.

Unfortunately, it`s never nice to see a player writhing in agony and then having to be carried off on a stretcher and in the heat of the moment, tempers can flare up.

On Saturday it looked as if words were exchanged between Clint Dempsey and Karl Henry, the person who committed the tackle.

Afterwards, clearly painted as the villain of the peace, Karl Henry, rightfully, tried to clear the air, remarking to the tabloid press,

"It was disappointing that a few of them were trying to have a go at me."

"They were fine until they realised how badly hurt he was, which was a load of rubbish because I would never do anything to hurt anybody."

"It was disappointing. I was having a go at Clint and he was having a go at me. I don`t want to hear form another professional that I have gone out to do somebody."

"That wasn`t the case. I am sure if you have seen it, it was a fair tackle and I have tried to win the ball."

"I am sorry I have done any damage to him because that is the last thing I would have wanted."

"I know Bobby, we have the same agent and played together for the England U21`s. I would never go out to hurt anyone, let alone him."


What`s your verdict?

Was it a bad tackle or was Bobby just unfortunate in the way it turned out?

At 5.00 pm Saturday I wanted Karl Henry's head on a block, having seen the tackle replayed I'd have to admit that it didn't look malicious and Bobby was just very unfortunate that he tangled with Henry and they fell badly. I was still judging Wolves from their last game when Joey Barton got kicked all over the pitch. I'd like to wish Bobby a speedy recovery, and hope there is no lasting damage. We miss him already, but next week we will get behind the team again!

Coming in from the angle Henry did is a little overly aggressive in my opinion, but I don't think there was any intent, and honestly, if it hadn't resulted in injury, it wouldn't even have raised an eyebrow.

i think it's hard to bang the drum about henry's tackle without reevaluating etuhu's tackle on phil neville that laid him up for 6 months... henry's tackle looked innocuous... and very unfortunate...
