Now whoever thought we'd actually be singing that refrain without a trace of irony two seasons ago? Congratulations Zamo on a remarkable transformation and reward for sheer dogged determination.
Fabio Capello announces his first England squad for the Hungary friendly next week after our World Cup humiliation and - knowing that Fab is a keen follower of this blog, I predict here a start and first England cap for player of the season Bobby Zamora!
On good authority I understand overtures were made to the club regarding Bobby's form in pre-season and the condition of his ankle after that op last May. Although Jimmy Bullard also got called into the England set-up at Bisham Abbey in 2008 this time I'm fully expecting Super Bobby Zee to get some game time against Hungary.
This would give Zamo the distinction of being the first Fulham player to actually represent England during his time at the Cottage since George Cohen back in the 1960's.
With Emile Heskey's long overdue retirement from the national side and Peter Crouch currently unsettled at the Lane, Bob will be vying with Carlton Cole and Darren Bent for that England centre-forward shirt. Although both have pace and youth on their side, Capello is likely to look to the greater poise and all-round ability of Zamora to bring out the best in those around him, most notably Wayne Rooney - a forlorn and unhappy figure in South Africa.
Many observers feel that Bob had done enough to make the plane south last June, but for that aggravating and untimely achilles injury. Having dodged the World cup debacle, and with Capello aware he has to provide England fans with a fresh outlook for the national side, step up to the plate Fulham's Bobby Zamora. WELL DONE BOB!
