Bobby Zamora has a dislocated collarbone

According to, Bobby Zamora has a dislocated collarbone. That is very bad news for Fulham as Bobby was on a real hot streak with scoring goals and being a threat up front. There is not timetable given for his return.

According to, Andy Johnson's dislocated collarbone injury kept him out about 2 months earlier this year. I am thinking the time frame could be similar. In the meantime, Andy Johnson just recently returned as a striker.

There are a few options up front to help out in Zamora's absence. First, just as we saw in the second half of the Stoke Game, Clint Dempsey can play as a striker. I do think he is better in midfield though. Second, Erik Nevland is another option as a striker. He has more speed, but probably less of a physical presence. Third, could be the return of Diomansy Kamara. However, I don't know what his time frame of return will be. Kamara to me would be a seamless fit. Fourth, could be a potential loan deal for Stefano Okaka.

Every team goes through injuries. Unfortunately for Fulham the injury bug has hit them in the beginning of 2010. I am confident though they can find a striker solution to hold up until the return of Bobby Zamora.
