Zamora to QPR

The Daily Mirror say that Bobby Zamora is on the verge of signing for QPR. They claim that Zamora will join Rangers on an initial one-year loan, with QPR and West Ham splitting his £15,000-a-week wages.

Me too.

I can't see how letting Zamora go on loan for £7,500 a week (according to The Mirror) will help the club at all.

Surely we can't be that skint that we need to save £7,500 a week.

I wonder if the player really wants a move like this. Could it be that he is now unhappy with club's pay scale?

If what was recently published about the salary schemes at WH is true, it could be very disruptive for the morale of lots of the players

if there is truth to it, one gets the feeling that the club is prepared to make the gamble that Sears will develop quickly enuf to render Zamora surplus to requirements. But that seems a dangerous game to play. For a start ,i agree, the club surely can t be that skint that it s worried about 7k a week. And the point about morale is a good one- headed into a new season the club needs to tread carefully. It wud be totally counterproductive ,short and long term, to have a set of disgruntled players,before the season even starts. Ashton is important,but it isn t just about Ashton.

OMG - imagine the situation if Ashton and Bellamy were both injured - which is on their track records is not beyond the realms of possibility.

Now, no offence to Cole - or his supporters - but I don't think I can handle another season of him up front on his own.

i think the possibility u raise of a time where both bellamy and ashton are injured is not far-fetched. and i m a bit surprised at how short the memory of the club is ,in the event Zamora does go. Given the increased wages to Ashton, and given all the media speculation about WHU being "forced" to cut the wage bill,that implies that wud not be much in the way of funds available to replace Zamora if we loaned him out.

2003 shud be an ample reminder of what can happen to west ham if we become desperately short of options up front due to injury. Because we got away with it last season wud not make us immune to relegation again if we faced a similar injury crisis upfront again.
