At last something to write about. Tonight the club have given Fulham permission to talk to Bobby Zamora and John Pantsil. In some ways it is a sad day, as Bobby Zamora really is one of us – a Hammer through and through. And John Pantsil is certainly the kind of character we all love at Upton Park. But if we are honest, are either of them good enough to be a first team fixture in a side which aspires to a top eight finish? I fear the answer is no. So while I will be sad to see then go, I’ll certainly give them both a rousing cheer wheb they return.
I would hope we’d get a combined fee of somewhere approaching £5 million, but I fear it will be closer to £3.5 million. If so, Fulham will have got themselves an absolute steal.
