'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Thanks Bobby

And so it came to pass that, on a very sad day, Fulham and Bobby Zamora did part company.

After weeks of rumours that insisted all was not well between Martin Jol and Bobby, the club accepted a bid for Bobby from Queens Park Rangers for the player.

It appears that the fee accepted was anywhere between £4 million and £6 million, way below the price apparently stipulated by our owner when speculation arose that Bobby could be sold.

£6 million (at the top end of the reported range) still represents a bargain and once the deal had been concluded, late last night, Mark Hughes was quick to remark,

"We needed a player like Bobby."

Whereas Bobby celebrated joining his fourth London club, commenting,

"It`s a new challenge and the chance to link up with Mark Hughes again, I enjoyed working with his style of play. The ambition of the club is massive and it`s the right time to move."

And so it is with a heavy heart that we say cheerio to Bobby, a player who didn`t always get the accolades form the Craven Cottage supporters he deserved but a player we`ll, no doubt, miss!

Bon voyage Bobby, we thank you for all your wonderful efforts, all those wonderful goals and wish you good luck down the road in Shepherds Bush, but beware that relegation trap-door, it could well swing open for your new lot!

Zamora was a great player for us, but time moves on. He wanted out. He got out. Good luck to him.

i feel like he was pushed out more than he wanted out... he'll be missed...

In the interview I saw, Zamora seemed genuinely pleased to be joining QPR. He didn't want to play for Jol and he wanted out. Is Jol to blame? I don't know, but all managers have their own styles and tactics, and like it or not, it's the players job to follow direction. I'm not pleased with some of Jol's tactics, either, but I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. It seems that a few players have taken their issues with Jol on the pitch and it's shown in their performances. I wish Bobby had stayed, but it's done.

Unfortunately I’m getting very concerned about the direction Jol is taking us, I think we are in for a long second half of the league with the final result relegation at which point Jol will take big bag of cash and **** off to some other poor club that is dumb enough to take him on. I really do think Jol is out of his depth, to sell a player that you know can change a game and gives you options when under the cosh and replace him with an unknown player who’s played 45 mins for Russia and who’s own coaches say “he is OK and he works hard” oh great well that will be alright then won’t it, not. Why are we selling our best players and replacing them with Championship class players at best. In November the club states that Zamora is worth £12 million and then 2 months later sell him for £4 WTF!!!!! I can’t see Dempsey, Dembele, Hangeland, Kasami or Frei being here next season.
