Bobby Zamora was ‘delighted’ to help fire Fulham to an impressive win over Liverpool this afternoon and prove a point to those who had questioned his striking ability.
The Fulham striker was the butt of plenty of jokes and came in for more criticism after a horrific miss at Manchester City last weekend, but scored the opener and posed plenty of problems for Liverpool’s defence as the Whites won 3-1 at Craven Cottage.
I’m delighted to get three points against a very good side. It’s always hard against them but it’s a massive game for us and I’m glad that we’ve got the three points.
We were having a chuckle at half time – I don’t know what the stats were but it must have been 90% possession for Liverpool. We did catch them on the break and luckily got that goal. Fernando went up the other end and scored after a lot of pressure but we were pleased at half-time at 1-1.
I had a big miss last week but it was nice to silence a few people who had a few things to say to me – nice to get on the scoresheet.
In the second half we went out and put them under pressure at times and created a lot of chances. I think people will look at it, see the scoreline and two red cards and think that’s the reason Fulham have won when I don’t think it was.
I think this performance has been coming for the last four or five games. We were unlucky against Roma, unlucky against Manchester City and definitely unlucky against Arsenal. We’ve been threatening to do something and were just pleased that’s it come eventually.
I didn’t really see Clint’s one [the sending off for Philipp Degen] too well. The second one – I thought there was a challenge earlier in the box and I thought that was probably a penalty.
