Harry Redknapp lavishes praise on Bobby Zamora in the sub-Standard tonight. The Fulham striker tends to play well when he’s got a point prove so let’s hope he still feels he’s got a point to prove to Spurs after his spell at White Hart Lane.
Tottenham let Zamora go too quickly. He was a terrific schoolboy footballer at West Ham but then he disappeared out of the game.
I was manager of West Ham at the time and Frank Lampard Snr used to tell me what a good player Zamora was as a kid. But he stopped playing football and West Ham let him go.
Roy knows how to get the best out of Zamora and this season he is producing the goods. He is a possibility for England’s World Cup squad, although if the manager was going to pick him he might have been in the squad to face Egypt.
This is the best spell of Zamora’s career. He seems to thrive on being a big fish, one of the main players. Maybe he wasn’t that at Spurs or West Ham.
Fulham are a tough nut to crack and they got an incredible result against Shakhtar. Roy has done a great job and they have some other good players like Brede Hangeland and Danny Murphy.
