Zamora: Boredom driving desire to return

06 October 2010

Yes! I got off the couch today!

Bobby Zamora, still in the early stages of his recovery from a broken leg suffered at the hands of de Jong-worshipper Karl Henry, spoke out Wednesday about life as an injured athlete.

Here are some choice quotes, as reported by ESPNSoccernet:

“It’s getting there, but it’s going to be a long process.”

“It’s starting to get to me now as the boredom is setting in.”

“It is hard and it is boring and it is depressing.”

(Wait, is that what Bobby said about watching Fulham’s attack without him and Moussa Dembele? Just kidding. Sort of.)

What is noteworthy is that Zamora remains in a forced rest period prior to being able to start any type of rehabilitation as his leg and ligaments heal. At this point, Fulham is just hoping for no setbacks when he does resume physical training, so they can get him back in February for the back end of the Premiership push.

Meanwhile, the speculation over attacking options continues. Mark Hughes may be getting Dembele and (possibly) Andy Johnson back for the home match with Spurs on the 16th, but that hasn’t stifled reports that Fulham may be after 7 million-pound-rated Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling in the January window.

Based on Kiessling’s dynamic goal-scoring celebrations, he’d make a nifty addition to the lineup:

OK, that was a bit of German footie humor. Anyway, get well Bobby and hope you fit in with whatever random striker(s) Fulham buys in the next window. We need you.
